Just returned from a relaxing weekend at the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort and was very sad to leave. It was not right on the beach (a line of houses and small alleyway separated the hotel from the sand) But it was close enough to have a beautiful view and to hear the waves breaking from the room and feel the...

This is a relatively nice "hotel" --- but it is really a marketing instrument for a condo development. Everything is focused on buying foreclosed time shares and the grounds are shared with condo dwellers. Despite the hotel literature which asks that people not allow their children to run and scream at the pool -- the pool is filled with shrieking... More

Seven hundred or so reviews pretty much cover all that is to be said about Carlsbad Inn. The only bit of additional advice that I can offer is that the view from Elm condos looking at Carlsbad Village Dr is not appreciated enough. I am talking about late mornings when surfer dudes and dudettes go to the beach and back,... More

This Resort is one of the prettiest ones I have seen in a long time. The cost was very reasonable, the room quite beautiful. I don't think you could find a room that was not as lovely as ours. The whole experience was wonderful and I will recommend this Resort to many people.

Very comfortable and well maintained resort. It is walking distance to great shops and restaurants and steps to the beach. A lot of planned resort activities. Very busy with kids until Labor Day...then very peaceful.

Booked the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort for the Labor Day Wednesday and Thursday (sold out for the weekend, unfortunately). This is a lovely small to medium size property in the heart of Carlsbad, within walking distance of restaurants, the Beach, the Ocean Walk south of town, and shops. Train station a few blocks away. The Inn offers condos and hotel... More

The resort was very nice. The rooms have been updated and are spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful. Being so close to the beach was wonderful. There are many great restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Stayed at Carlsbad Inn as a timeshare exchange. Units were very spacious with all a family needs.Lovely grounds. Within easy reach of San Diego and Disneyland along I-15 . Safe underground parking. Carlsbad village is very interesting with many boutiques and cafes. Highly recommended.
