Guests of the Best Western not only have the gorgeous coast as their neighbor, but also are conveniently located near many of the best activities and attractions in the area.
Families planning to visit LEGOLAND California in Carlsbad, who are traveling on a budget, often chose the Best Western. Just about eight miles away from the hotel, the LEGOLAND amusement park is fun for the whole family!
We suggest planning ahead and purchasing the Go San Diego Pass to LEGOLAND California to maximize savings. You can combine your admission tickets with other top area attractions and activities such as entrance to SeaWorld San Diego or a kayak rental.
