Expected more from this brand hotel. Mattress was extremely worn to the point of being a hammock. Mattress comfort selector did not work. Room refrigerator was replaced at our request upon check-in due to not cooling. Toilet ran at intervals just enough to keep waking us up during the night. True I did not report issues after the refrigerator. I... More

I have come to expect a certain level of service from Hilton Garden Inn - I'm not sure this quite fits the standard of others I have stayed in. First of all travelers - if you are staying anywhere in Carlsbad, you will likely run into a gaggle of kids. I have stayed in several hotels and there are always... More

It was really nice to be close to the ocean but all the problems that came with it were not worth the view. The A/C did not work so when we got there, it was so hot in the room. They had to bring two different portable A/C units that were such a pain. The guy who brought them in... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your recent stay with us. Please accept our apologies again for the concern with the air conditioning. It can be very hard for the system to keep up when windows are open in the room while running the unit but understand the proximity to the ocean can make this difficult to resist at times. I... More

Chose this hotel for its beach front location! We stayed in a 2 queen beds and still have space to move around. Plus it was clean and well laid out! The only minor complaint is that you have to close the bathroom door to open the room door. The hotel charges$12 for parking. All in all it was a great... More

Employees were great and courteous. The grounds were beautiful. Everyone was friendly. The hotel had a cheerful atmosphere. If you want peacefulness then this is the place to stay. If you love the water it is in walking distance from your room. Surfing and awesome sunsets.

My family stayed here for 5 nights. We are Hilton Diamond members, so we typically do stay at Hiltons when we travel. I was torn between giving this hotel 3 or 4 stars, but I sided towards 3 due to not getting a great night's sleep while we were there. Pros: The hotel is located across from the beach, and... More

Stayed here over 3 weeks for business trips in summer 2014. The hotel is located across from the beach and in easy driving distance to downtown Carlsbad. The rooms are standard Hilton style, clean and easy to navigate. The hotel when I stayed had lots of families since this is close to legoland. My only warning is that unless you... More

I used this hotel as a base for a business trip that included 5 International customers. I wanted a nice hotel that would allow them to experience the ocean and to relax after the days business. The hotel has a beach feel, comfortable, spacious, clean rooms. The hotel itself has a close knit feel with an intimate feel to the... More
