Maps and Directions - West Inn & Suites

West Inn & Suites is located in Carlsbad, California, part of beautiful coastal north San Diego County situated between downtown San Diego to the south, and Orange County and Los Angeles to the north.

Just four blocks from pristine beaches and minutes from area business parks, we are an ideal location for both the business and leisure traveler.

Take advantage of our locality:

A five-minute shuttle ride takes you to LEGOLAND, the LEGOLAND Water Park and Sea Life Aquarium, Gemological Institute of America (GIA), Museum of Making Music, fabulous premium outlet and boutique shopping and golf.

Take a short bike ride, walk or drive to a local park and pick up seashells on the beautiful Carlsbad beaches or get wet at the lagoons with a paddle board lesson. Choose the sand, we supply the buckets and shovels, you build the castles. Located just ten minutes south of the hotel, the San Diego Botanical Gardens make for a relaxing afternoon, or you can enjoy a soothing 2.5-mile walk around the Batiquitos Lagoon.

All around, there is so much to do, with plenty of sunshine to do it in!
