The hotel grounds are beautiful with the ocean view over the interior garden. There are lots of activities for kids, boogie boarding, sandcastles and beach fun are just the beginning. You can bike along the ocean front, play ping pong, swim in the pool, relax in the hot tub and there are lots of crafts and other activities available for... More

We can't wait to go back! Carlsbad has it all: great restaurants, shopping and a very romantic place to just kick back and relax. We found much enjoyment in walking the water's edge and going into the hot tub, especially since it was adult only. Will definitely go back and ride the Coaster into San Diego to play. Highly recommend... More

Room 367 has an amazing view of the courtyard and ocean. Able to walk to nearby restaurants and shopping. Room was clean and comfortable. This is our third stay at the inn. I am sure we will return again.

Entire Staff, steps to the beach & village location, village shopping, a wide variety places to eat - - Carlsbad Inn has it all and more! Many local attractions within an easy distance for day trips, (a day trip to downtown San Diego on the Coaster train get you right into the center of the city) or just park your... More

Just come back from California having enjoyed my fourth stay at The Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort since first staying there back in 2006 (apologies CIBR for not posting a review sooner). Everything about this hotel is excellent, Carlsbad is an absolutely beautiful seaside town and this resort is right in the centre of it, so unlike a lot of places... More

It was well appointed and the balcony was fabulous we loved hanging out on it. Norte restuarant right next door had a good happy hour, Linda's yougart was a treat, and... More

The resort is located in a perfect spot! Within a block to the beach, several good restaurants and activities nearby, easy access to the freeway. The resort itself is an amazing destination with activities planned throughout the week, swimming pool, whirlpool, fitness facilities, beach bikes, etc. The grounds are beautiful, the staff are friendly, the resort is clean and well...

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
