Located right across the street from the ocean and at a reasonable price! This combination alone makes this hotel a great value and coupled with excellent service makes it a property I would stay at again and recommend to others.

This could be an excellent hotel, but there a few minor issues that need correcting. Pros - - The front desk staff was very good (excellent local recommendations) and efficient. - LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! The location is fantastic - watch the sunset over the Pacific from across the street. - The room was very clean - excellent job by housekeeping.... More

Great location and accommodations. Located directly across from Pacific coast, although there is no easy access down to the sand from location of hotel. Pool and hot tub were very nice. Staff are friendly and accommodating.

The only complaint I had was my sister in room 314 had to relocate the next day (there was no room available for the same day) due to air conditioner not working. Otherwise the rooms and breakfast were excellent and beyond reasonable priced especially for what you received. The cook to order was delicious.

Everything was really nice. Shuttle to beach and internet access was great. Very friendly and helpful staff. Business services like access to computers and printing was great. "Partial ocean views" aren't necessarily worth the upgrade. Next time I'd just go with whatever room was cheapest unless I wanted full ocean view.

great service - clean friendly hotel. Upon arrival our grandchildren were offered a cool treat before preparing to head to LEGOLAND. Shuttle was fast, friendly and ran often. A quick phone call and we were picked back up - for a return to our hotel . Beautiful view of ocean from our room. Queen beds were helpful - instead of... More

Great Hotel if you are an Honors member. Full Breakfast is included as a Gold Member. Great location for the family to stay if you are visiting LEGOLAND. Beach is right across the street, but there are no stairs leading down to the beach. Encountered a problem with our room's AC, and they switched us to another room right away.... More

Not the best hotel, but it will do for a short stay. Some pros were that there were great views of the ocean, and so many leisurely things to do (pool, free movies outside on the lawn, ping-pong table, giant bowling, yoga mats, balls). Their restaurant was also really nice, and the location is a very short drive from Carlsbad's... More

Beware of hidden or inaccurate charges such as parking, happy hour specials, etc....Was told parking was $5/day but when the bill came it was $12/day and they wouldn't correct the error. Very disappointing stay

I really enjoyed my stay here at the Hilton Garden Inn. Tip: order ocean view, not partial (partial=pool view). The LEGOLAND family package was great, and great price, breakfast was included. Had to pay parking, but not a big deal, it was good. Ocean is was a walking distance. Save a couple of bucks and cruise around the area and... More
