* Location is ~ 30 min north of San Diego and right off I5 so easy to get around. They are near outlet shopping, many restaurants, movie theaters, and right by the beach. You walk out the back of the resort and down some steps and you are at a wonderful, clean beach! * Free parking. * You can check... More

Our family visits this resort every year. The location cannot be beat. You will never need to use your car. It is located right at the beach and the village of Carlsbad with a lot of restaurants and shopping. Also very close walk to the train station to take a day trip into San Diego. The facilities are always top... More

Been coming for years every August as a child and now a parent. Perfect beach time with the family. My children can not go a summer without going to Carlsbad. Newly remodeled, the 1-bedroom condo share units are small but have all the amenities from full kitchen, bath, bedroom with king and partial ocean view. Lots of weekly resort activities... More

... and that's not my "Ahnold" impersonation. Although I was in Carlsbad on a business trip, this is very much a "family place." It is a combination hotel and condo resort with easy access to the beach. There are a number of excellent restaurants within easy walking distance and a Mexican restaurant (Norte) right on the property. Unfortunately I didn't... More

My husband and I took a quick staycation getaway and had a great time. Our room was spacious and we had an ocean view from our balcony. We loved how close it was to everything. The ocean is so close and so are tons of awesome restaurants. We can't wait to come back and next time we are bringing our... More

Not a good stay for overnight, as check-in is so late (4:00pm) and check-out so early (11:00). We showed up early because we had such a late soccer game on Saturday, but could not check in until after 4pm. Then we had an early game the next day, but the hotel was entirely inflexible and uncooperative about check-out. So even... More

We had an absolutely fantastic stay here. Our only regret is that we didn't plan to stay longer. We arrived a couple of hours prior to check-in, and our room was not quite ready. The staff provided us with temporary keys that provided access to the pool and allowed us to check out equipment from the hotel. They also gave... More

Yesterday was my anniversary and that reminded me of my 10th anniversary a year ago at the Carlsbad Inn. On the lawn, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, I remarried my friend, partner, the man I love. The setting was perfect, the rooms modern and comfortable and the event staff took gentle care in helping us receive orders, set up caterers, musicians,... More

PROS: - Great location! RIght across the street from the beach! - Modern looking units - Various & multiple food/entertainment within walking distance - Super friendly staff! CONS: - Different rules for the "visiting" timeshare guests (in comparison to timeshare residents of Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort) - Reactive in many instances instead of proactive
