So I should start by saying that if all you want is a hotel in easy walking distance to the beach and Carlsbad, this is not a bad spot. If you want a nice room or one that makes you feel like you are near a beach, avoid this hotel. The room was about the quality level of a mid... More

This is a time-share with smaller units rented as hotel rooms. With no complaints about the room, bed, amenities and service, it would already be a great place to stay. What takes it over the top is how centralized you are for just about anything you want to do. In fact, you can park your car for the duration. The... More

Recently stayed here for a week's vacation and was impressed by the service received. We had stayed at another hotel the night before, so we arrived long before the 4pm check-in time. Khara, at the front desk, greeted us, held our luggage at the front area and said they'd call when our room was available. Within 30 minutes, we were... More

Stayed here recently during a trip down southern California. Value for money its a great hotel. It has everything you could need and is in a great location. Staff were friendly and it has a great fitness center which is rare for most hotels. The only thing that was strange was the pre purchasing of the breakfast when booking online.... More

I work in the hotel industry, and was impressed with this resort. Not a high end resort, but location and amenities are great. Most of the rooms were 1 bedroom condos that are offered as time share units, the remaining rooms are typical 1 room units to rent like we did from their web site. Despite time share presence, there... More

An easy walk across the street to the beach, Carlsbad Inn is a beautiful place to stay, both inside and out, and is within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. We enjoyed the walking tour which turned out to be a tasting tour as several of the cafes and restaurants gave us samples while we heard the history of... More

Carlsbad Inn is absolutely gorgeous and fabulous in every way! Our family with 3 children (ages 6, 3 and 1) just returned from a perfect week at Carlsbad Inn. We spent the week at the resort and at the beach with no need to get in the car. There is so much to do at the resort -pool, kiddie pool,... More

This is quite possibly our favorite resort. It is across the street from the pacific ocean and you can walk down the hill to the beach . The sunsets are magnificent! They have a fitness center, pool, whirlpool and free coffee and tea in the library. They offer many activities also. Every room has a balcony, beach chairs and beach... More
