The hotel is in a great location, directly across the street from the beach. The Good: - Rooms were clean - Location is great - Staff was very friendly The Bad: - The rooms could definitely use a refresh. They are a bit dated. - Breakfast options are a bit sparse. Tips: - Use the Hilton app to check out... More

Very nice and quiet across from the beach. The view is beautiful, try to get a room with "the view" and on the top floor. There is a shuttle to take you to the outlet mall which is close by. Carlsbad has a lot to offer to fill the time. Staff member are very friendly always asking how is everything... More

Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach completely exceeded my expectations. From the friendly greeting with gift bags for the kids and champagne for the adults to all of the fun Memorial Day Weekend activities (movies by the pool with popcorn, bean bag tosses, horseshoes, life-size bowling), we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is excellent with the Carlsbad beaches right across... More

Due to an illness in my family, I had to change my travel plans unexpectedly and cancel a 2 day reservation at this property. The front desk manager and the General Manager refused to waive the one night room cancellation charge, even though I canceled only 2 hours after the cancellation deadline! What makes this even more egregious is, I'm... More

My wife and I booked this hotel as we are Hilton Honors members and like Garden Inns as they are not pet friendly. We paid $509.80 for two nights including the self parking fee of $12.00 per night. The first room on the second floor we were led to had some distant ocean view but we were looking at a... More

I was really excited to stay at this property as it came at the recommendation of a colleague. However, after a four night stay I can say with certainty that I will likely not be back. Room - 225 Rate Paid - $140 per night (business travel) Pros: * Customer service - check in/out was smooth and pleasant. I received... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your recent stay with us. We are glad you were able to enjoy some of the amenities that we offer here. Please accept my apologies for any shortcomings you may have experienced. We certainly can struggle with rust issues in certain locations being so near the ocean and beach. We investigated the coffee smell and... More

We stayed for business combo family stay of two nights. Everything was clean and he facility was above average. Good location across from beach. Train tracks located behind hotel but I never heard a train inside the hotel. Front desk was very friendly and efficient. Bed was somewhat uncomfortable but we noticed a huge pile of new bedding supplies being... More

Very friendly staff upon check in. Room was clean and comfortable. Directly across from the beach and a short drive to downtown Carlsbad. I did have breakfast there the following morning and was surprisingly very happy and impressed with the veggie filled egg scramble that they made me. Most hotel breakfasts are meh at best and there's was quite good.... More

Stayed here as a mini-vacation prior to a business trip in San Diego. Anyway, the property is nicely updated and the rooms were what I'd expect size-wise and very clean. I had free breakfast (cook-to-order eggs/buffet) and the wait staff let the kids eat on our breakfast coupons which was nice. Just a word of warning, you don't walk directly... More
