This is an ideal setting for a family vacation. The beach is literally across the street. The complimentary umbrellas, chairs and boogie boards are available on your walk to the beach. The commons with the pools, hot tubs and fire pits are a great way to spend time with family on the resort. We had a family reunion with 46... More

A small town with a beautiful beach. The inn has lots of families and regular visitors from Arizona by the bus load. I like that everything is within walking distance and it's not packed with spring break type partiers.

Very very good but not outstanding . . A busy, vibrant place perfect for families with kids. Pool area, fire pits, hot tubs, beach view, 1 minute walk to beach, free boogie boards, beach toys, chairs and umbrellas - all great features. We had the 2BR 2BA condo with ocean view. Excellent location with a myraid of shopping, dining and... More

I've owned my unit a long time and my wife and I usually exchanged. Since I'm alone now I decided to use it myself and was very much impressed with how nice it is and how great the activities are. Watching the kids having fun on the green was great. Getting into the ocean again was wonderful and having the... More

We had read some great reviews on this hotel and thought it would be worth the extra money, we were wrong, and can’t imagine rating it any higher. Our room was adequate and did have a kitchenette but it is very dated and old. I went back and read the reviews and noticed the 4 and 5 star ratings were... More

We were in the timeshare side and had a 2 bedroom with our two older teenage daughters. It was a wonderfully spacious and was great having 2 bathrooms. We tend to cook meals at the resort and found the kitchen utensils a little lacking but a quick call to the front desk and they provided whatever we asked for. The... More

The Carlsbad Inn is centrally located in the area known as Carlsbad Village. The property has a lot of potential and overall is very nice. I'm extremely disappointed however that there was major construction going on right outside of our room for the entire week long stay. We were never informed about this, we are only told that there would... More

Traveling without reservations, we were pleased to find lodging that had such a high rating. But we were disappointed. As two adults without kids, it simply was not our kind of place... The main hotel is surrounded by what appears to be rooms that primarily serve families for more than one overnight. There are young staff, like at a camp,... More

We had a terrific time at the Carlsbad Inn. The grounds are beautiful and the beach is so close and fun! I was impressed with the umbrellas, chairs and beach toys available for check out. It made our time at the beach so enjoyable. The location of the hotel is perfect. You can walk to many restaurants and shops and... More
