We stayed in a two bedroom, unit #107. Beautiful and newly remodeled. When you first walk in, the living room looks very sparce with just one sofa and coffee table. It really should have a nice relaxing chair in the room as well. We were with two couples and two children ages 8 & 10. One bathroom did not work... More

We stayed at Ocean Palms for 3 nights and I highly recommend it! The staff was super friendly and helpful, the rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed, it is across the street from the beach and there was ample parking. A fantastic experience - we can't wait to go back!!

Our stay here was great! Good hospitality and perfect location! Close to beach, restaurants, and legoland! We like traveling with our cavalier King Charles and it was a relief to know we could leave her in the room and she'd be safe. We will be returning!

This is a classic case of a positive turn around on a vacation stay. Likely due to my own ignorance we booked this hotel thinking two families would have two separate bathrooms in the suite we reserved. Upon the first party's arrival(and subsequent discovery of the bathroom dilemma) we had the initial thought to cancel and rebook elsewhere. To my... More

My husband and I love this place and highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Carlsbad Ca. The staff was so accommodating to us. Also very friendly. Always kept it clean. Plus this place is pet friendly which makes me happy that I can bring my dog with me.

This place is across the street from a beautiful public beach and also a block from the vibrant and interesting town. The "resort" itself is beautifully landscaped and maintained. It isn't my idea of a a resort - but it did have everything we could have asked for. We were three adults and three children - and we could not... More

Love this place. Best spot in Carlsbad for sure and we've stayed everywhere. Great staff. Thanks Biraj!! You made it perfect. Love the pool. Fire pits. So close to the water. Everyone here is very nice and helpful. Ask for Biraj and he'll make sure your stay is perfect.

My 2 sisters and I stayed in a 2 bedroom "apartment" in late May 2015. OPBR is a beautiful lush tropical themed hotel with a pool and putting green and maybe a few other things i missed but think its a stretch to call it a resort. The rooms are beautiful and lack nothing. It is not located on the... More

Accommodating and helpful staff, great rooms and perfect location. Everything was a short walk away, every day we checked out beach "stuff" for free at the lobby - so we didn't have to pack it. Great idea
