Pros: We stayed for two nights. Enjoyed the breakfast and especially the coffee. 5 min drive to Legoland, excellent restaurants nearby. Great vacation!
9,0 Excellent
Pros: We were there on a Sunday night and for all we could tell we were the only guests. We never heard a peep out of anyone. The facility wasn't brand new, but seemed to be very clean and well maintained and we got it for a very good price. The breakfast was pretty good for an included breakfast. The eggs and sausage were a little overcooked, but at least they had eggs and sausage. I liked that they had a nice variety of salsas and hot sauces to make the eggs special. We would definitely stay here again if we can get it for a similar price.
Cons: Coffee could have been better. It tasted a little more like an old diner than Starbucks.
6,0 Good

6,8 Good
Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpfully

4,6 Okay
Pros: Right on the beach
Cons: Reservations weren’t correct, had to upgrade to get the room we thought we reserved. They auto shut off the hot tub every night at 9pm. The pics online are not a true representation of what the hotel is like, very low end & very expensive for what you get
8,0 Excellent

3,0 Mediocre
Pros: The view was amazing once we changed rooms. You could walk down the stairs and you were on the beach. The gal that assisted us during check out was the best experience we had for the entire trip.
Cons: The rooms were dirty, the blankets were dirty hair and other things on them (looked like someone else had used them). The first room we got which was supposed to be ocean front was looking directly at a roof top. The hot tub was only open until 9:00 pm and automatically shuts off! Never heard of such a thing.They charged us to upgrade to the view we thought we had purchased originally. Double charged us the upgrade fee for both days (caught that on our bill when we checked out). No elevators so if you have heavy suitcases be prepared to carry up and down the stairs.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Everything!!
5,4 Okay
Pros: location is perfect
Cons: The room was covered with dust, I only stayed one night, and there were five or six bugs, but I didn't open the window.The room smells bad and the air conditioner is loud.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: Loved the location, staff, and room. Huge rooms and even though we didn't get an "ocean view" we still could see half of the ocean from our room.The staff was extremely nice and we'll definitely be bringing our 3 year old and 1 year old next time.
Cons: Breakfast isn't the best–wish they had eggs and meat as an option.
5,1 Okay
Pros: The view was picturesque . Shannon the at the front desk carries this place, she should go into hotel management.
Cons: Seriously outdated rooms, tripped several times on the uneven flooring in room 26. The carpet felt like it had been laid over another carpet that had been folded over in different areas. Bedding was not what I expected for the money that they charged for an exclusive room. Maid service needs basic bed making 101, how to tuck in the bottom sheet so patrons feet are not touching the mattress pad. Pool was cloudy, ran out of towels. All round we were not impressed with anything the Beach Terrace Inn had to offer. CHEAP.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: the staff was the best. I wish the management would give them praise! Especially the reception and at the pool the white, dark haired quy is a jewel. They are the ones doing the results.
Cons: My first room for one night (33) was terrible, stuffy, carpet especially, second (62) for 8 nights was and comfortable enough.
9,7 Excellent

7,0 Good
Pros: I love the separate kids bedroom space and all the little details. The knights room had a night light that illuminated constellations on the ceiling. The beds are super comfortable and everyone slept very well. The kids enjoyed the pool area, the lifeguards were always alert to the kids in the pool. Great selection at the breakfast buffet. The staff was helpful and friendly and did a really nice job of moving families through. The treasure chest surprises each day was a bonus for the kids however there are only 3 options and on day 4 they got the exact same keychain that they got the day before. The location was great. It is easy to go into San Diego, Sea World, or La Jolla for a day trip. And of course with a 2-day park hopper to Legoland it is the perfect place to stay..
Cons: They only have basic TV/cable. After a long day of play would've loved to cuddle on the bed with the whole family and watch a Lego movie. Tried to use our mobile hotspot with the smart TV but could only get audio. Also, when we showed up the master bedroom fitted sheet was dirty, multiple hairs on it and a couple dirty marks. We got in late and had to wait for the bed to be changed. There is outdoor entertainment but it's the same thing looped over and over. I was shocked there were so few Lego shows available since the Florida resort in 2017 had the Lego movie on 24/7 in the kids' room. It is expensive to stay and you get charged even more if you have to park a car overnight. Would be nice if the resort fee included the cost to park a car on site.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The entire park was clean, easy access going into the park from the hotel.
Cons: It was great! Nothing we didn't like.
8,0 Excellent

Cons: Not much to do after park closes and not many extra amenities
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Almost everything was great. The staff was friendly, the hotel is geared towards families with children and there are many unique experiences. From the complementary buffet to the evening dance party, Legoland Hotel is the perfect way to experience Legoland.
Cons: The hotel is a little bit on the expensive side.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Walking into the LEGOLAND California Resort and Castle Hotel made me feel like a child again. I loved all the Lego creations throughout the hotel and those in the room itself were magical. The kids' bedroom with the Lego building area was perfect and the treasure hunt such a great way to explore the hotel. Travelling with a 12 year old who is Lego obsessed, this place was definitely a hit!
Cons: It is so difficult to get to the hotel without your own vehicle. We didn't have a car and trying to get from Universal Studios to LEGOLAND California Resort and Castle Hotel was a nightmare. We ended up hiring a shuttle which cost an absolute fortune. The cost of the hotel was also very high, so this is a once in a lifetime stay at the hotel for us.

Cons: Said it included breakfast but actually not a breakfast.
6,7 Good
Pros: Great location by the water and downtown Carlsbad
Cons: The desk closes at night and there is an emergency number on the door that didn’t seem to work. I called 8 times, as well as taking to reservations and security and eventually security let me in my room but in never got anyone on the phone from the line provided. Every time I called I would start to talk to the woman who answered and I would be hung up on. Not a great system if you lose or misplace your key.

8,5 Excellent
Pros: Good location, the staff is friendly, and the rooms are spacious and clean. The free breakfast was very good.
Cons: Since there isn’t a full service restaurant, there aren’t any restaurants close by (if you are new to the area). It’s really just located around other hotels. There are no facilities for charging an electric vehicle. There is an outdoor outlet, but it’s located right next to a handicapped parking space. That’s a deal-breaker for us, so we won’t stay there again. There are hotels nearby that do have those stations so they really need to upgrade.

Cons: Walls were paper thin. We could hear everything the people next room over we’re saying. What i thought were closets to hang clothes were locked so no hanging space? The fridge was leaking when we walked in, because the ice inside was defrosting so part of the floor was soaked. It was late and we didn’t want to have to switch rooms so we cleaned things up ourselves. The heater was the loudest thing I’ve ever heard so we didn’t even use it and just stayed cold. The pillows and blankets had an old smell to them. Made me concerned about the cleanliness of the bed and room.

Pros: The hotel is central to many things so that is convinent.
Cons: Hotel check in was 4pm but when we arrived at 530p, our room was still not available. We were not able to get a room until after 6p, and it was not the room we booked.
5,8 Okay
Pros: I would say the distance to Legoland- walking distance and available shuttles. Quiet area. The pool area and Restaurant facing the pool was the best part of our stay at this hotel.
Cons: First when we arrived they gave us a room on the first floor with the parking view. we had to go to the room to find out that it is not what we expected and paid for as a deluxe room which as they described has a coastal view. After we went down to let them know, the manager in charge showed us so much attitude and kept arguing instead of trying to change our room to what we paid for. 2- the air conditioner/ heater wasn't working and we froze the first night putting it on 76 degrees when it felt like 66. They had to ask Engineers to come check it the next morning. 3- The toilet clogged up the first day and they had to ask their maintenance to come fix it. 4- The beds were so saggy that you would wake up with backache every morning. 5. The blankets were not cotton and breathable, so you would feel so hot under them, but so cold if you didn't use them due to broken air conditioner. 6- We had to wait 25 min to get a table for breakfast and we had to ask the waitress for spoon, sugar, etc etc.

Pros: The proximity to the ocean is great for the moderate climate, ocean air, views of the ocean and the sunset. The pool is very nice with a waterslide as well as a great Jacuzzi. The fire pit in the central patio is very nice as well.
Cons: The $24 dollar charge for parking was obscene, especially considering that we parked outside in an unmarked space with no security. I would understand if we had parked in the indoor lot or used valet service perhaps, but not for what we used.

Cons: Pool deck very slippery when wet, even when slowly walking. Likely accident waiting to happen.

Cons: Need soap holder and at least one safety bar in the shower. Another light option in the bathroom would be nice, I loved the lighted mirror but it was too dark in the shower :)

Pros: The Resort was walking distance to Legoland (right across the street from the pedestrian entrance) and had a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. The staff was very friendly and helpful, giving us info on the Hiltons complementary shuttle bus to the shops and beach. We enjoyed spending time in the beautiful lobby, ordering drinks, food, playing games (hotel’s checkers, chess etc...board games) and watching Christmas movies on their large TVs. There are two large pools and a few hot tubs. We enjoyed swimming/hot tubing in the family area. Our room was spacious, comfortable, clean and modern. There are also family friendly activities (Arts & crafts) offered at the resort on a daily basis. We enjoyed the Karl Strauss Brewery for two dinners, located on the property as well. The resort offers lots of parking and there is a parking garage underneath. I’m very happy we chose Grand Pacific Palisades to stay at instead of a Legoland hotel, it was much more relaxing.
Cons: The hotel does not offer breakfast. However, they give you a $20 daily voucher. We would use it towards coffee, fruit, scones and snacks from their gift store or drinks and appetizers at their lobby bar.

5,5 Okay
Pros: Housekeeping was awful. Didn’t clean 1 day all together. I went to the front desk the next morning before we left for the day to insist that they clean it in the morning - and after coming back in the later afternoon it wasn’t clean. Two reception desks one couldn’t answer any basic questions. And I asked for a west facing room and was put in an east facing room over two storage trailers! Great location - but .the experience was not good
Cons: The location is great. The facility was fine. The customer service SUCKED.
