My mother, daughter (9), and I stayed at the Ocean Palms Beach Resort for 5 days in August, and we had a wonderful experience! I booked a studio online, and then I was contacted by a nice man running the front desk. He had received my reservation and called to let me know that, for $10 more a night, we... More

My husband and I planned a family vacation with our grown children and their families. We were 11 adults and 9 children and half stayed at the Ocean Palms Molokai room. It was the hub for the week with a full size kitchen fully stocked, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It is the perfect beach cottage accommodation with hotel service.... More

The Ocean Palms Beach Resort exceeded our expectations. The location could not have been better, as it was only steps away from the beach and from the fun and food in the heart of Carlsbad. The room was beautiful and well kept, the Palm trees were gorgeous and the staff was incredibly professional, friendly and helpful. Everyone (varying from the... More

We stayed at Ocean Palms in July and LOVED it! We have twin seven year old girls who love the water so between the pool and the beach (literally across the street) it was awesome. Our room and the facilities were immaculate and because it's gated (for the most part) the kids just ran back and forth between the pool... More

Loved the remodeled two bedroom on the front. We were in 107. Disappointed in the internet connectivity. Disappointed the room was rented out for the same week next year with out giving us the chance to rebook for that week.

Very friendly and helpful staff! The maids do an excellent job both in the rooms and on the outside grounds. It's nice to be able to get beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas. The free ice is also a bonus. Great location, you can walk everywhere. The firepits are nice for cooking smoors. We will be back again next year.

The room was great, service was excellent. Nice having a gym but all of the fans weren't working in there and it gets pretty warm. Employees are all very helpful with whatever we needed, and always friendly and happy to help

Great little property with everything you need. Not too fancy, but we weren't looking for that. Love having a kitchen and not needing to eat out for every meal. The rooms are renovated nicely and it is right across the street from the beach and walking to everything you need in Carlsbad.

Todd at front desk was exceptional! The manager gave us an upgraded room at a discounted price. We were right over the hot tub and pool. The huge shower and bath tub were wonderful. Enjoyed meeting new people at the fire pits every night. Easy parking and walking distance to beach, stores, and restaurants!

Great vacation location! Walking distance to beach, restaurants and shopping! Staff is friendly and helpful. Outdoor areas are fun for the whole family with the heated pool, Jacuzzi and fire pits! Dog friendly in most rooms is a plus!!
