This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here. Great remodeled rooms, very helpful staff. Walk across the street to the beach or walk to nearby restaurants, happy hours etc. They supply guests with beach towels, chairs, morning coffe, danish, some fruit. We will be back again in the future.

Went for a birthday retreat with my pup. Loved the staff, the hotel and the location. The grounds are beautiful. The rooms are large - great kitchens, clean and well maintained. Beach across the street. The hotel keeps a list of dog friendly cafes. Make sure you visit Del Mar beach- best dog beach on west coast, well, next to... More

First time we stayed here and glad we did. The main reason we stayed here was because the beach was just across from the hotel and walking distance to shops and restaurants. The small resort was kept clean and very nicely landscaped. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our unit had 2 bedrooms, living room, and small kitchen with... More

I honeymooned at Ocean Palms and then came back this year for my first anniversary. It is a great place. As soon as I got there I was informed that we had been upgraded, free of charge, to a bigger, better room with a private Jacuzzi and triple headed shower. The rooms were clean and spacious with a nice kitchen... More

The property is in a great location. It's walking distance to everything, most importantly right across from the beach. The staff seem to take extra special care to keep the outside areas clean and inviting. The rooms are spacious and clean. Couldn't have asked for a better place to spend a long weekend at the beach.

This is the first time I have ever posted. Typically I don't have the time, But this place is amazing and the staff exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival for our anniversary weekend, we were greeted with a bottle of wine and a room upgrade at no additional cost. We brought our bike and rode into the heart of the village... More

A lovely, small resort with nicely landscaped grounds, picnic tables, pool, fire pits and a relaxed feel. They have beach gear for the asking, and are close to restaurants, cafes and bars. Walk across the street to get to the beach. If you like the young family crowd, come over the weekend. But if you are looking for peace and... More

We booked two rooms here for a family weekend in Carlsbad. Terrific value, great location, and excellent service. Fire pits and pool made for a great time with the family! Close to all restaurants and directly across the street from the beach. Highly recommend.

Stayed with my wife and 3 yr old son for the holiday weekend. We had a 1 bedroom suite for the 3 of us, which worked...but if we were staying a week we would have gone for the 2 bedroom and got the extra space. The location can't be beat....the grounds are really nice and we would definitely stay again!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For generations, families visiting San Diego's North County for fun and relaxation on America's greatest beaches have enjoyed staying at the Ocean Palms. Our casual Carlsbad resort is ideally located along the coast in Carlsbad Village, home to one of Southern California's best collections of shops and restaurants. The Ocean Palms offers a wide choice of Carlsbad accommodations. From comfortable budget rooms to luxury suites, 1, 2 and 3 Bedrooms, some with ocean views, every room offers a fully equipped kitchen. We have the unique ability to provide you with the exact sleeping arrangements you need. Whether it's adjoining rooms or a suite, we can get you the space you need at a rate you'll love. Enjoy a continental breakfast, with fresh fruit, fresh-baked cookies, Danishes, and fresh-brewed coffee. Enjoy the laid back atmosphere and the lush landscaping. We're pet friendly, there's free WiFi, a heated pool and Jacuzzi. We love families who can't get enough of the beach, so we provide free beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and even free surfboards. The beach is right across the street, and the charming Village of Carlsbad is just a block away. Visiting Legoland? We're only a 10 minute drive. We're also just three blocks from the Coaster railroad station, so you can ride the train and take in all the attractions in San Diego, from a Padres Game at Petco Park to a tour of the historic aircraft carrier U.S.S. Midway. Here in North County San Diego, explore wineries and microbreweries. Welcome to your beachside home away from home. Come to the Ocean Palms, where cool Pacific breezes sweep across the enchanting Village of Carlsbad. There is no better place for families to capture the magic of Southern California. ... more   less
