Recently stayed one night and the room was huge, very clean and even had a balcony where you could see the ocean from!!! I was blown away by the warm welcome feeling I got from the front desk staff. Will definitely be coming back again.

This was a family reunion for us and the accommodations were roomy enough to accommodate all six of us. Three of us took the train down from Orange County, and with a transfer we got off the train about two blocks from the resort. The property was neat and clean, the staff were professional, and the location was perfect...just across... More

Amazing property located in the heart of Carlsbad, just steps away from the beach. Customer-oriented staff continue to create a welcoming destination location. From the moment we walked into the lobby we were greeted by engaging staff who made us feel "at home". As we walked across the courtyard to our room, we knew we would be relaxed and recharged...

We live in San Diego and have 2 weeks at the Carlsbad inn. Love the ocean view and so much closer than Hawaii. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance, all the staff is very friendly, lots of fun activities to do for visitors to the resort, beautiful sunsets over the Ocean.

Good stay by the ocean. Clean, comfortable, friendly. I would recommend it. Ask for a room near the ocean, that's the best views. We did a timeshare so I don't know how pricey it is if you pay. Even with a timeshare swap you still pay $20 per day in resort fees - I didn't like that.

Not exactly beach front as it would seem but in the heart of the village and waking distance to everything. Room was nice, clean and updated. Bathroom really nice. Had a great stay. Had activities like yoga class in the AM. I didn't partake but looked well attended and made me wish I did.

We spent a long weekend at the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort, January 2016. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The rooms were extremely clean. However, I felt the room service attendant had to pay for supplies her self. We were there from a Thursday to Tuesday and never had a glass or a cup. I would have to remember to... More
