We had a little mix up with our reservations. With no hesitation Raj took care of the mix up and upgraded us. The room was fantastic and the staff was helpful in every way. The ocean views were great my wife loved it for running. Five minutes away from great shopping and sight seeing. We enjoyed the spa and the... More

We drove from LA to this hotel for 1 night. We loved it. It's not actually in Carlsbad village but it's an easy drive there. The hotel is close to the beach and has ocean views. Although we had a car park view sadly. The hotel had a Spa feel...tranquil, stylish and clean.. Love it and would stay again.

The location and aesthetic of this hotel are really lovely. The restaurant has a beautiful view and the pool area is also lovely. I was only here for a quick business trip, but I would definitely stay here with my husband for a get-away weekend. Lovely staff, too!

wonderful time-staff was warm and friendly-car was always ready and waiting when needed. Only negative was that we waited quite a long time for our rooms to be ready and we have an infant with us. Hotel did not seem that crowded and I believe other accommodations could have been made.

The family recently stayed here on a trip to San Diego. This location has been on my list for quite some time........and then the balloon was deflated! As a Hilton Diamond member staying in a "high profile" location.....I just walked away with an "ok" experience. This hotel is very clean and the lobby / common area is very nice and... More

I enjoyed my stay at the beautiful Cape Rey Hilton. The pool was heated and the ocean was walking distance from the room. The staff was friendly and catered to our every need.. Next time I'm in Carlsbad, I'll stay here.

We stayed one night because we were attending a wedding in the area. The hotel has a beautiful, classy lobby. As we arrived we ran into the wedding party. It set the mood for what turned out to be a great wedding celebration; then came back to the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! We breakfasted at Chandler's the... More

While a smaller property, this Hilton property is very comfortable. It's a stretch to call it a resort but the service makes it very attractive. Lean modern rooms and across the street from the beach make this location a fun stop. Family friendly with some small activities and bike rentals.
