Good hotel”
We stayed 4 days. It was pretty noisy (lots of kids running around even after 11:00pm). Hotel was pretty clean, AC worked fine, complementary breakfast wasn’t that good. They have the usual - cereal, eggs, sausage, bread, beagles, yogurt, juice and coffe- I did not see any pastry though. The location is great, next to shopping mall and lots of food choices. Overall I would say. Is olace is not a resort at all but it’s a decent place to stay at.

Great for Legoland trip”
I stayed here two nights with my boys who were excited to see the Legoland touches at the hotel and I was pleasantly surprised to find out they had a free shuttle! We left our backpack on the return shuttle and were relieved to find out that the driver had turned it in right away. The pool and hot tub were crowded but really fun. The free breakfast was great. The grounds and room were very nice, the private patio was a nice addition. The only negative part was that there was no elevator to the second floor and it was tough to haul all of our stuff up the stairs. I would stay here again but would request a first floor room.

Loved the proximity to shopping, restaurants, Legoland, the beach. The free shuttle to Legoland saved us $40 during our stay and a lot of wait time. It’s not the newest hotel but it was a good value compared to others in this area.

Good place to stay”
Clean, great location. The pool was supposed to he heated but it was still too cold to swim. The hot tub was available to use since the pool is too cold. Continental breakfast was available. I was still charged for resort fees and I thought agora already added it to my total payment when I booked it online.

LEGO land Star Wars days”
We needed A hotel for Legoland Star Wars days since we were performing for Legoland. This was a great hotel close to Legoland and had a great price. We’ll definitely have to keep this place in mind the next time we need a hotel for legoland. Also very close to a bunch of different restaurants and gas stations.

Pleasant quiet overnight stay during the week... Room was clean, beds were comfortable, every room had its own safe balcony, breakfast wasn't bad and the grounds were kept clean even with painting maintenance going on. Great location right off the the freeway, close to Legoland, starbucks, restaurants, gas stations, and Carlsbad outlets are located directly across the street. Yes this is an older hotel not a resort (I think they actually changed the name to Hotel and dropped the resort) but the rooms were spacious , very clean and staff was friendly. It was perfect for a quick trip to Legoland, I would definatly stay here again if in the area.

Missing tooth paste and tooth brush, room is too far from parking, one of the drap is too old, the carpet is too old and made me feet itchy. The only good thing is location, 7 minutes to Legoland, across Flower Field and shopping center

It's a very convenient location, right off the freeway, near legoland, an outlet malls, and lots of restaurants. Utilized their free shuttle to legoland and saved us money. Pool was large enough and not crowded, great free breakfast, and the entire staff was kind and helpfully. The property is slightly outdated but it works with all its conveniences.

Disappointed”
3 days without hot water and the only thing they did for us on the 3rd day was to offer us a another room to take showers. Not move us rooms but let's us use another room. Ridiculous.. no apology. Nothing. All we heard was it was a old building and it may take a bit to get hot water. We ran it for three days, are they getting hot water from Arizona?? Smh. Beware.....
