Newly remodeled with all the conviences of home. Very close to beach and restaurants all within walking distances. Pool and Spa were great. It is great value for a family. Probably one of the best kept secrets in the Carlsbad Area.

We enjoyed our stay in our clean well equipped room, and appreciated the company of the friendly, attentive and courteous staff. The grounds are very lush and are set up with many places to just sit, relax, read, and swim. The location allowed us views and sunny days on the gorgeous beach, walking distance to quaint shops, excellent restaurants and... More

Enchanting place to be and I will return to for years to come. Thank you Ocean Palms for making my wish come true for a much needed, beautiful... More

Service was excellent. Walk to beach and area restaurants & shopping. We were met for a family get together and everyone was pleased with the location and amenities. We would definitely stay here again.

The room was nicely decorated and clean. It was equipped with a full size refrigerator, full size stove, microwave, utensils, pots and pans, dinnerware, etc. The staff was very professional and efficient. They were also very friendly and laid back. The property was quiet and there was ample and convenient parking.

The hotel grounds are so lush and gorgeous. My room was large with a beautiful hand painted mural over the bed and beautiful glass tile in the shower. The kitchen was large altho needs a microwave. Very clean and updated. Enjoyed the fire pit after a nice soak in the hot tub in the evening......

My husband bright me here for a short birthday get away. We were upgraded at no cost because our room was not available. Once inside the gate its like a tropical sanctuary. Walking distance to a great many shops and food. Beach across the little street, and all kinds of calm and intimate. Definitely a favorite.

The best 2 features of this hotel are that its very close to the stairway leading to the beach across the street and the fact that you unless you are staying in one of the rooms facing the street, you cannot see anything outside of the inner tropical pool courtyard that is almost completely isolated and is accessible only by...

The rooms are so amazing. All recently remodeled. We have been going to Carlsbad for the past 3 years and always staying at Ocean Palms Beach Resort. We go over approximately 3 - 4 times a year, each time staying there. There's no other place. The proximately to the beach is incredible. We park our vehicle and walk to restaurants... More

Great little hotel, close to the beach, great service, clean and walking distance to shops and restaurants - like being in Hawaii - not cheap but worth it. Great for families, well equipped kitchen and outdoor BBQ's and firepits
