This was our first trip to Carlsbad and we chose the Ocean Palms Resort because of the great reviews it had and mainly because it is dog friendly. The resort is in a great location just steps to the ocean where we enjoyed watching the beautiful sunsets. We loved the fire pits and tables in the courtyard of the resort.... More

We have stayed at Ocean Palms three times now. All the stays have been in the Holiday Season (winter months). I would guess privacy and noise might be more of an issue in the summer. All of the rooms we stayed in have been remodeled. I understand there only a few that have not, but are now under renovation. We... More

We live in Vista but like to escape house and kids sometimes and just come here. We've tried a few of the rooms, and they are always nice. We like the kitchen and outside area to set up a lunch and enjoy the coast. Walking distance to almost every kind of restaurant in downtown Carlsbad. Highly recommend!

Amazing staff! Clean, modern beach decor. Loved having a kitchen. Only steps away from the beach! Great for a beach vacation with the kids or a romantic getaway for 2. Highly recommended! We will be back soon!

We were presently surprised by the cleanliness and well kept condition of this resort. You can't beat the price and you can bring your dog if you want. There is a very nice and very clean pool and hot tub. Behind the office is a decent size patio area with open fire pits that are lit at night. Very relaxing.... More

Great Hotel with BBQS and great outdoor seating with many fire pits, nice pool, a little golf putting area and they allow dogs too! One block from the Village and right across the street from the beach!

This was our 3rd Christmas stay. It's a beautiful place, great location and a friendly staff. We will definitely stay again. The only bad thing I can say is that the wifi is hardly there at all. Don't count on using it for much more than email. Still, steps from the beach, great pool, and close to everything in town... More

Our family spent six nights at Ocean Palms, sharing adjoining rooms with kitchens. The rooms had been recently remodeled and were well appointed and clean. It's a very friendly place with beautiful grounds directly across the street from the ocean. I would recommend it.
