This hotel is so centrally located within Carlsbad. We parked our car on Friday and did't even go back to it until we left Monday. We rode our beach cruisers everywhere or walked. The hotel has all the beach chairs and towels you need and it has just been renovated. It is a beautiful location and very nice facility. The... More

This is our most favorite resort to stay at in southern California. It has everything that we need & enjoy to have a great time. It is close to everything that we want to do & see. It is a fairly small resort & very intimate. It is also romantic & quiet. It is just across the street from the... More

We really regretted staying at Ocean Palms Beach Resort for only two nights! The rooms were very nicely decorated and the large kitchen was awesome! We could also use the barbeque outside if we wanted to. They had a very nice garden and swimming pool, with cosy lighting and fire places at night. The beach was across the street, you... More

It was a spur of the moment trip and the hotel was wonderful. Bright and Sunny with a happy vibe. Although we did not partake of the courtyard and pool, the torches and fire pits gave it a tropical atmosphere and the chatter and laughter was a soothing background noise when we were out of our room. Beach access is... More

Loved the fire pits, great for hanging out with family. The rooms were just as I expected. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the lushness of the property, very well kept. Located right across the street from the stairs for beach access. Great view.

We are always very pleased with our experience at Ocean Palms Resort. The rooms are so tastefully decorated and very clean. This year we were upgraded to a one bedroom suite at no extra cost because our TV wasn't working. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The grounds are beautifully kept with lots of areas for relaxation around the... More

Very close to both the beach (one row back from the water) and an easy walk to shops and restaurants in downtown Carlsbad. The rooms are newly renovated and were very comfortable. The staff was very helpful...we had a group of 18 staying in 7 different rooms and they were able to help us plan local excursions and always had... More

I was booked into the Ocean Palms while visiting Carlsbad California for a work trip. I was so pleased to have this opportunity to stay at this resort. It was a wonderful and relaxing treat to make a business trip the best I have taken. From the easy access and walking paths to the ocean, the rooms with beautiful kitchens,... More
