As with all hotels in this area, it is a little pricy for what you get. However, it is clean and they do offer coupons for kids 12 and under to eat free (1 child for each adult). The TGIF's attached is horrible, don't bother going, regardless how quaint it looks with its lighthouse motif. Their food is expensive and terrible; really it?s just not edible. Instead go across the street to the outlet mall, eat at Ruby's Diner with your coupon or one of the other places nearby if you don't use the coupon (see review for King's Fish House next door to hotel, mmmmm). Overall this hotel is relatively convenient to most things in the Carlsbad area (GIA, Legoland and the Music History Museum are all just a couple of blocks away, as is the beach).
Pros: Good location
Cons: none really
