Our reason to book this hotel was because they were one of the few hotels offered in the Carlsbad Marathon Website as a Marathon Endorsed Hotel. They promised a shuttle service - No shuttle service to the race was provided. Just the regular shuttle that takes people into town, to Legoland etc... This quote is specifically pulled from their website... More

Never before have I been able to check in at 11 am. Instead of spending 6 hr in an airport I went ahead to the hotel and figured I would lounge at the beach with luggage as the worse case. But they had an open room and had no problem letting me check in early. Staff has been great and... More

Wooden structure I'm guessing, you could hear anyone and everyone that might be walking around the hotel. Beds in my room were in need of replacing i.e. one side of each clearly saggy while the other was not. Great service, clean, safe, across from the ocean so a big plus and short drive to many things. Overall probably would not... More

My stay was reasonably pleasant. Noise and weak wifi were annoying but the staff and the beach front location made up for it. The lobby is approximately 20 steps from the oceanside beach and the sunsets were absolutely amazing. No other hotel in the area can beat this location at this price.

The hotel is a nice place ... Very friendly staff especially the restaurant staff. Hotel is crowded with young soccer players and the staff has been very patient under some loud and unruly circumstances. We are in the lobby restaurant ... had the fried green tomato sliders and they were delish! Also excellent mahi mahi tacos! Very impressed with the... More

Rooms were fine-a hotel room is a hotel room. What made our stay was the employees. It was a tough trip due to family issues but the employees went out of their way to make sure things were right. Obviously, no complaints here. Going back to SoCal soon and will book another set of rooms there.

We drove in to carlsbad late and decided to stay at at HGI. It was very dark out and couldn't get a good idea of what kind of area we were in but knew we liked staying at Hilton hotels. We ate dinner and fell asleep. When I woke up in the morning I was BLOWN away with our room.... More

The Hilton Garden Inn is nicely situated just a few miles from downtown Carlsbad and if you are adventurous, you can walk to town. My wife and I did and we clocked it at just under 4 miles. Meanwhile the hotel property is very nice, and one of the largest Garden Inn's that I have stayed at. The staff is... More

Great place. Right across the street from the beach, great pool, well maintained. Our kids loved the game room and ping pong table, fireplace area outside and of course, the pool and hot tub (which were very clean and well-maintained). We were under the impression that breakfast was included in our stay but it was not - ask for breakfast... More

We were offered a three night stay through Wyndham resorts. The Hilton Garden Inn was across the road from a ocean view but to access the beach you need to go about a half mile down the road. The room was very nice with two queen beds. The only drawback was the noise from the room next door, we could... More
