Los Angeles, California
January 17, 2002
Breakfast was included in the $62 price. Breakfast was served in the lobby, and consisted of pastries, toast, juice and weak coffee.
This hotel is on Route 62 headed toward the Caverns. It is the last motel on the left before you leave town. It wasn''t anything to write home about, but was clean and adequate for our needs.
There is no restaurant close by. You have to go into Carlsbad. Since we were tired of pizza and fast food and were too tired to drive around and look for someplace nice, I went to the local Wal-Mart and bought a cheap plastic salad bowl, salad makings, salad tongs, paring knife, mustard, mayo, pickles, bread, ham, cheese, and beer. We had a nice "home-cooked" meal in our room for about $20. Since we were travelling by car (SUV, really) we had space to store the bought items.
Would I stay here again? Only if travelling with a pet or a large family. There is an indoor swimming pool here.
