Grand Pacific Palisades Resort & Hotel, Carlsbad
Great Lego Land alternative
Great resort! If you are going to Lego Land this is a great choice. Once we got to the hotel we didn't have to drive until we checked out. They have everything you need and you can walk to Lego Land. The family pool is great. The location above the flower fields is beautiful. We had a wonderful time and would go back asap!

Nice hotel with beautiful views of the flower fields!

Nice resort! Would stay there again.
Great location for Legoland and awesome facilities at the resort for kids and the whole family to enjoy. Also the 2BR villas are very spacious for the family. The only drawback I can mention is that the end villa, where we stayed, is noisy late in the evening with all the late-night guests returning from the brewery passing it or using the stairs which are right outside of it. If I knew this beforehand, I would ask for a room closer to the middle of the building.

Poor cleaning service and front desk service
After cleaning the room the service staff misplaced the remote control to the TV and it took the staff at desk 6 phone calls then an in person visit where I refused to leave the front desk before we got a replacement. Cleaning service did not replace towels that were obviously used and on floor: we used beach towels. Cleaning service cleaned rooms between 4-6 pm which is rather late. We put up with this due to Lego land in walking distance but will not stay there again.
