We stayed two nights around a wedding and wanted to be close to Carlsbad and Encinitas, but also close to the beach. This hotel fit the bill nicely. It's across the street from Carlsbad State Beach, although up on the bluffs so you do have to walk abit to get to the water. That was fine with us, as we... More

For me the real show stopper was having the Pacific Ocean right across the road. Very friendly hotel staff, good clean environment. Plenty of choice at breakfast and dinner. Only downer was the hotel is a bit isolated if you want to walk into town for a change of scenery and a beer. I would suggest this hotel is perfect... More

We had a wonderful time at this hotel, the staff was very helpful. The room was clean and the view is great. The only problem is that the beach in front of the hotel is not a very good beach. Overall, very good stay.

Love the staff, especially Cherie and Manny . Hotel is getting older and older, but prices stay competetive with Hilton that is 3 years old down the street. My room smelled, as did my pillows. I have stayed here 13 years straight and the hotel needs some money invested by the owners!! Once again the staff is incredible and is... More

Great service from the staff. They have great amenities for all to enjoy. Their business center has all tools like you were at home to use while staying. The dining is in house with good food all day long. The bar is a social place whether for business or pleasure. The beach is 2 minutes away walking and beautiful to... More

Pros: great location, food is pretty good, staff is friendly, shuttle drivers are good guys, but they take heat from guest about how long the wait was. Cons: never believe the time they give you for the free shuttle, add an hour. Pool could be cleaner, Breakfast is pricey, for the price of a room it should be complimentary.

We stayed for three nights over the 4th of July Weekend. This is a great property for families with children visiting Legoland and other nearby attractions. The price might be slightly high for this level of Hilton, probably due to the holiday weekend/high season and fabulous location no doubt, but the fabulous amenities that are included in your stay make...

My family and I visited this hotel for our vacation and booked two rooms. We waited an hour after normal checkin for our rooms, they were not serviced the first 2 days and then only when we demanded and the pool never had fresh towels. Never again.

Could not beat the location of this hotel. We picked this hotel because it was right across the street from the beach. Our purpose of the trip was a mini family vacation to go to LEGOLAND. We used the free shuttle service to LEGOLAND so we would not have to pay for parking at the amusement park since we were... More

This hotel is an excellent place to stay with family. It is located very close to LEGOLAND and just across the street from the beach. Oceanside is just a few miles up the coastline and the area has plenty of restaurants, fast food, gas stations, grocery stores, shopping, etc. On site live music and movie on Friday night was a...
