This was an excellent property had a very comfortable room, great location, beautiful view of the ocean. We had our meals served outside during seminar. Food and service was "top of the table" good. Felt special and welcomed from the valet that open the door the front desk, to the people in the gift shop. Look forward to my return... More

Beautiful location, across the street from the beach, really great Hilton. We all know the Hilton Garden Inns are cookie cutter in many ways, well yes it is the same here, but they expand this hotel well beyond any Hilton Garden Inn I have ever stayed in. Breakfast is fantastic, one feature I had nit seen they have a shuttle... More

I selected this hotel because I stay pretty much at Hilton properties, and because it's web site says it's across the street from the beach. That's technically true, but the beach is inaccessible. You have to walk ten minutes -- over a quarter mile -- down the road to gain access (not that easy for everyone). I would never have... More

We had a wonderful time! So wonderful that we decided to return for the 4th year in a row. Staff went above and beyond to make my son's birthday special. Appreciated the birthday cake awaiting our arrival. They also have beach rentals and free shuttle service to Legoland and the beach.

From the moment we checked in, we were made to feel at home. The hotel is very wheelchair accessible – only potential problem was to get to the back entrance there is a pretty steep ramp. The restaurant/bar in the hotel is very good – we ate dinner and breakfast. While you can order a la carte for breakfast, do... More

The Hilton Garden Inn is a very good property that is worth a visit given its location across the street from the beach-though you will need to drive a bit north for more family friendly beach locations. The restaurant and bar are available should you choose to dine in the restaurant-the menu is more suited towards the business traveler but... More

For price and location, unbeatable! 50 yds out front door to beach. Granted you do have to find a place to get down the cliff to the beach, but it was only another 100yds to a trail. Be careful, wear tennis shoes. If you wear sandals or anything else you are asking for a spill. I am 65 and it... More

I've traveled to Carlsbad for the weekend many a time, and have stayed in various places in and around the village. Somehow I never found this place, maybe because t didn't show up in my hotels.com searches, but saw it on the map. Contacted the hotel directly and was able to select my own room, which I loved! From the... More

It is a long walk to get to the beach, because across the street it's a 20 foot cliff down to the ocean. Good location, only a few miles south of Carlsbad. Easy freeway access. Quiet room, spacious. It's $12 a day for parking, and no free breakfast. Additional "conservation fees" will apply per day.

The hotel rooms were a good size and clean. The beds comfy. There is a nice outside area with a fireplace, couch, tables and ping pong. There is free coffee in the lobby and homemade cookies in the evening. It is a little tricky getting down to the beach. First you must cross four lanes (there is a walk light).... More
