Beautiful hotel, white water ocean views! Great spa...Debbie gives an amazing facial!! The hotel surprised us with Sparkling Wine and treats in our room. We stayed in one of the "Ocean view, King, Suites" so grand, well decorated and a ten million dollar view! You can hear the waves crashing...loved it!

I can't say enough. We're frequent worldwide travelers with an incident at our local home that put us at Cape Rey for two weeks with our 4 children. Everything about the stay was perfect. The level of professionalism and customer focus is just stunning.

Spent a few days here over Christmas. Clean, comfortable rooms. Nice views. Lots of amenities typical of a Hilton Resort. Employees were extremely accommodating and friendly. Located in a residential area which was also quiet, a short walk across the road to the path down to the beach. Beautiful sunsets. Did not eat in the hotel because we like to... More

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at this hotel. The setting is beautiful, the staff are wonderful and caring, and the event for 70 people ran like clockwork! I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for any event, even just a week-end getaway! The rooms are comfortable and the food was amazing!

Booked a room here based on the offer found on the Carlsbad Marathon website. I am glad that I did. They had a shuttle to the start, snacks and water in the morning, and a ride back to the hotel from the finish. And a very nice hot tub after the race. Opted to get the Bed & Breakfast option...

Official marathon hotel, did not appear to offer anything extra for the runner vs. a regular customer. As the race hotel it was far from the race expo and start line. The race did not even go past the hotel. As location for a hotel it is beautiful right across the street from the ocean. Unfortunately our room only had... More

Perfect location for race, not to close and not to far. The Hotel itself is beautiful and very well kept. The staff from the desk to the maid service, are very friendly and informative. Expected a little more amenities for the runners though since this was the official hotel of the race, otherwise, you can get another nice hotel for... More

This was such a wonderful hotel to stay at in Southern California. For first impressions, the staff was kind and accommodating. They gave toys to my kids upon arrival to play with in the room. We stayed in a suite with an ocean view and it was amazing! We had our 21 month old with us and they set up... More

My sister & I were here for the Carlsbad Half Marathon. We arrived Saturday about an hour prior to check in and were greeted very warmly by valet, then front desk girl. She explained everything well, and we were very pleased with our ocean view room w/balcony. The beds were super comfortable, and we liked having a microwave to make... More

We just got home from a 4 night stay in Carlsbad at Cape Rey. It was pricey but worth every penny. The property was beautiful, the rooms were nice and clean and the staff was friendly. My wife and I enjoyed the hot tub and fire pits at night while enjoying a beverage. Furthermore, they had a complimentary shuttle to... More
