They provide everything complimentary for the beach which is nice. Wife and I thought the price was good for the amenities, which also included hot tub, pool, artistic landscaping, fitness room, Starbucks coffe brewing machine... The only thing we might suggest for improvement is more healthy breakfast items, but local walking distance restaurants are excellent anywqy so it didn't really... More

Great service, great experience, great options. I absolutely love the hotel. The rooms are so spacious! It is such a fun place to stay. Todd, the staff is really kind and helpful. He upgraded our rooms so that our three rooms can be close to each other. We will definitely be back.

This is the only place I will stay when visiting! Everything is so beautiful, the rooms are amazing and the location is perfect! I could hear the waves just by opening my window. I didn't want to leave and I can't wait to go back!

We took a spontaneous train trip to Carlsbad and needed a hotel close to the train. Ocean Palms is only about 2 1/2 blocks away and right across the street from the ocean. They have done an excellent job of remodeling this two story hotel - very tropical look with carved palm trees, a smallish pool and hot tub, and... More

Just a short walk across the street and you have access to a public beach. They could stand to install a small hanging closet. Full size oven and fridge in the room. Perfect for preparing our own food.

This place is a little pricey but well worth it. I tell everyone about this place. The kindness they give make you feel welcome and cared for. It's clean and they have a room for your needs. They have beach equipment for you to check out but the property with all it has you may not leave. Once you park... More

We have stayed here multiple times and have really enjoyed the property and plan on returning again. Last year I scheduled a trip and stay with Ocean Palms and I made a mistake on the dates. Called and they were extremely helpful with rescheduling and that was above and beyond what they were resposible for. The resort is steps from... More

Our last stay in December of 2015 was simply fantastic. Barry at the hotel told my wife that he made the day just for her. The beach and the waves were terrific. We stayed out at the beach until early evening. the day was warm and sunny and December. after that we walked slowly up the stairs to the hotel.... More
