Editor’s Review of West Inn & Suites

This wonderful gem of a hotel proudly displays its awards in the lobby, and they are well deserved. From the moment your family enters this family-owned boutique hotel, you are greeted by an enthusiastic and helpful staff. From the lovely lobby to the comfortable and stylish hotel rooms to the inn's living room with oversized fireplace and games, your family will feel right at home when settling into the West Inn & Suites.

Located just off of the highway, the hotel's triple-paned windows shut out all noise and you'd never guess you were so close to the road that gets your family to the best attractions in Carlsbad, San Diego and
... more Anaheim. Just minutes from Carlsbad's beaches and LEGOLAND California, the hotel provides a free shuttle within 5 miles of the hotel, including the aforementioned family-friendly destinations. Two onsite restaurants provide breakfast, lunch and dinner options, including fine dining, casual dining, outdoor dining and in-room dining -- each featuring seasonal produce from the inn's own 3-acre farm.

The West Inn & Suites welcomes all members of your family, including pets. Pets enjoy a pet park and dog run, as well as canine cuisine -- farm-to-table meals even for dogs and cats! less
