We found this gem online looking for a place to stay while taking my kids to Legoland. Since we missed our annual trip to the islands, I thought we'd stay here instead of the Legoland hotel. What a nice surprise for all! Just across the street from the beach made for a great morning coffee walk with the kids joyfully... More

My best friend was visiting and we needed a place that was close to the beach, shopping and restaurants needless we got that and MORE! The resort was great. The room nice and comfortable and we enjoyed the fire pits every night. I highly recommend this resort and will definitely stay here again!

What a gorgeous place. We stayed in a two bedroom suite and it was decorated with such class. It's right across the street from the ocean and within walking distance to everything in downtown Carlsbad. The staff are excellent, the amenities are great. They have a gym, laundry, great pool, hot tub and wonderful sitting area with three fire pits.... More

It was a spontanous decision to spent a night in Carlsbad. And we feel so lucky to find this place - it was the nicest place from our whole trip, which started in Palm Springs, Santa Monica, Huntington Beach and finally brought us to Ocean Palms Beach Resort. When ever we go back to California this will be our first... More

My boyfriend and I planned a weekend in San Diego to bring my dog, and I really wanted to spend a night at one of the beach cities further north. I was delighted to come across the Ocean Palms Beach Resort in my search, and was immediately attracted by the location, price and the bright, funky island decor, not to... More

Perfect location in the village of Carlsbad. Unless you want to visit LEGOLAND or the outlet mall you can park your car and walk just about anywhere in the village. A five minute walk to the beach, which is not crowded (AT ALL). Lush, tropical setting on the grounds with plenty of nooks & crannys to relax in away from... More

Great location, clean, and comfortable. Loved the fire pit area. Great for hanging out with a cocktail. /easy walk to restaurants. Parking was a bit tight, but only had that problem one night during our stay. I would recommend Ocean Palms.

We stayed here last month with our girls. I had stayed here with my Dad, sister and brother last year. It is a very cool place to stay. I think it's great for families and great for adults without kids, too. We had a room with a sliver of a view of the ocean. But that doesn't matter because the... More

My husband and I spent our wedding night at this hotel last month. We fell in love with the place, from the location to the grounds to the room and view .... I would highly recommend this facility for anyone who is travelling to Carlsbad. You can't beat the location or the facility! We hope to stay there again if... More

Resort was great, rooms were excellent. We were there on a regular week, hence not much crowd was in resort. We were lucky to get upgrade as well without paying additional money. Resort has nice pool, good inside view and plenty of seating place with fireplace. Two problems: a) This resort is not exactly in-front on Ocean. Hence very difficult... More
