I love this hotel. I've stayed here many times and am actually considering buying one of the timeshare units. The location is the best. If Trader Joes opened up within walking distance, my life would be complete. I was in town for the annual Carlsbad 5000 race. This time, my husband and I ran the 20k race rather than the... More

The resort has recently been upgraded. The grounds are nicely maintained. The staff is helpful and friendly. You can use there bikes and other amenities at no charge. The beach is across a quiet street from the resort.

I really enjoyed my stay and was able to meet a few very interesting folks from all over the country and Canada, It was very relaxing and a great time. The pool was great and the sunsets over the ocean were beautiful.

We decided to stay here on the advice of my sister who had stayed here a couple of years ago. We are VERY glad to have taken her advice. Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort is a place not soon to be forgotten. It is absolutely gorgeous - the hotel, the grounds, etc. We actually decided to try & come in a... More

We got more than what we bargained for. Complimentary breakfast, a great room, quiet floor (request the second floor next to t he windmill restaurant), free wifi, across the street from the outlet mall and a complimentary shuttle to/from LEGOLAND. Definitely coming back!

I actually stumbled upon this little beach resort when I cancelled a different reservation, and began seeking a room on St. Patrick's Day ! The Event Director Kelly spent over an hour with me calling other hotels, looking them up on the Internet and just holding my hand until I got a different property for that night. Then, she made...

I had the pleasure of staying at this Inn for a few days. The weather was perfect for my stay, and I had a room with a beach view, which made it that much more enjoyable. This Inn is right in the middle of town, so there is plenty to do and see. And the beach access is right outside... More

This was my first solo experience as a handicapped person, and it proved to be very revealing. This is a lovely place with a beach front and nice amenities, It's a combination of hotel and time share. The room I had was quite nice and comfortable. There are many places to eat and explore near the inn. My biggest complaint,... More

The rooms to which we were assigned at the Carlsbad Inn were of poor quality. The rooms are VERY small- some of the smallest rooms I have seen in a hotel or inn. The bathrooms are OLD and have the small old style bathtub with the annoying plastic sliding doors that don't allow much room for anyone to get in... More
