This is really a very nice hotel! It has everything that you need to have a wonderful stay in Carlsbad. The rooms were nice, hotel staff friendly and helpful, and a beautiful surrounding, right across from the beach! The only recommendation I would have would be to improve the work-out facility. It is really small and could use some more... More

Everyone at this hotel is quite helpful and friendly. The lobby and breakfast area are large and nice, as is the pool area. The hotel is very clean, the rooms are spotless and it has a great ocean view, if you get a room on the ocean side. You can rent beach chairs ($5 per chair for the day), but... More

We enjoyed our stay! Arrived at the hotel after a full day at Legoland around 9pm. Check-in process exceeded my expectations - simple, fast and friendly. Room was perfect - safe, clean and comfortable. Front desk staff extremely friendly at both check-in and check-out. Hotel is convenient with nearby restaurants, stores and gas.

I went for business, but had extra time to enjoy the beach. The hotel had beach chairs and towels for rent, which was convenient. The font desk staff and shuttle drivers were courteous and made great recommendations for dining and shopping. The hotel is minutes to Legoland and steps to the beach. The food was good and the rooms were... More

We were very pleased with the hotel accommodations, staff, cleanliness and location. I would advise anyone visiting the Carlsbad area to pick Hilton Garden Inn as their hotel of choice. Thank you Hilton for your hospitality!!

The beach is literally 30 yards maybe out the front door, so great for that. Was only here 1 night on business but room had cigarette smoke stench in it that didn't go away with air freshener, open window OR AC. Could've swapped for another room but was getting late so just toughed it out. Hotel gave me a free... More

We stayed in February and got what I would deem to be a very discounted room at the last minute. The rooms were typical of a mid-range hotel (nothing spectacular), but more than suited our needs (2 adults, 2 small children). The pool was nice. Breakfast was great. The staff was more than accommodating and provided cribs for our kids.... More

This is a nice family oriented hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable. It is freeway close to many local attractions and about one hour to San Diego. The beach is quite a trek from the actual hotel. The hotel is on a cliff and the beach access is about 1/4 mile or so from the hotel. Plan on driving... More

We're stuck here and no one seems to care. The only staff making a difference is Iran. Everyone else seems to be bothered. For one, the air conditioner is broken so a temporary portable air fan was brought into the room which blocks view of Ocean we paid extra for enjoying. The beds are also said to be state of... More
