Attractions

LEGOLAND and other Top Attractions – at Our Hotel’s Doorstep

Let West Inn & Suites be your gateway to discovering Orange County, Carlsbad, San Diego, La Jolla and beyond.

If you’re wondering what to do on a Tuesday evening, looking for a fun spot to take the kids or would like to find an out-of-the-way attraction that only locals know about, just stop by the front desk or see the Concierge for arrangements.

Ask us about the top beach for surfing along Carlsbad's 7 miles of coastline, or where to enjoy a quiet afternoon picnic at one of Carlsbad's 25 parks. Find out where the best shopping is or how to book a whale watching tour. Enjoy high stakes thrills at Del Mar Racetrack, sip and savor your way across Temecula Wine Country or take a stroll through the Carlsbad Flower Fields. Just moments from the hotel, you’ll find no shortage of world-class art galleries, eclectic antique shops and choice restaurants for any taste and occasion.

We are also located less than twenty minutes from the Del Mar Racetrack & Thoroughbred Club, home of the 2017 Breeders' Cup, taking place November 3rd & 4th. Take advantage of our Horseman's Special starting at $169/night!

For your planning convenience, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite attractions and things to do.
