You expect a good experience from a company like HILTON, and this location right across from the Carlsbad State Beach (it is as close as anyone can build a place), is outstanding. Friendly service, beautiful neo modern and beach blend architecture, and great food (our waitress was TAMARA - she was outstanding), makes this a place that gives you what... More

I highly recommend the Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort & Spa. The staff are extremely helpful & so incredibly friendly!! Always happy to drive guests to the local shopping locations etc. The rooms are luxurious, the entire resort is immaculate, everything a Hilton hotel is supposed to be. The local art that is displayed throughout the resort is gorgeous & really... More

We stayed here for one night since my mom just got out of the hospital just to relax. We got here at 2 p.m. and checked in although we were informed that our room is not ready yet. I know their check in time is at 4 p.m. I explained to the lady that we would appreciate it if we... More

Hosted small business retreat at this hotel and the entire experience was exceptional. Outstanding service from all hotel staff from the valet to the French chef who cooked our delicious seafood risotto. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. I had a room in the South wing of the hotel away from the pool area which offered a quieter experience... More

From arriving to leaving, we were treated well and looked after... We enjoyed our stay and the views and proximity to the beach was great. Really enjoyed our impromptu trip. We would definitely book a room here again

I love Carlsbad with its low key historic downtown and beautiful beach. The Hilton Carlsbad is beautifully situated across the camping/RVs and the beach. It is an easy walk across the street. The lobby is huge and beautifully decorated, there is a big business center, and the restaurant Chandler's is right on the lobby. The pool area is centrally located... More

Lets talk about the location, the hotel is in a residential area, across the street from the beach. The hotel front desk area is impressive, beautiful decor and furnishings. The front desk itself is very small. The agents were really nice. The room was nice and spacious, wish it would have had a balcony (the hotel was full) I had... More

This is a small property. Rooms are clean and nice, balcony is a must. The pool is average nothing special. The beach is across the road and is cool to walk up and down the beach. Nothing is really close but the hotel offers shuttle service to area attractions and places to eat. I am a walker so often walked... More

My husband and I spent Aug 25-28 in room 3001--the very last room at the end of the building. While the hotel is nice, and staff is friendly, I expected much more for the price. First, there is no unobstructed view--campers/rvs are parked on beach..Hotel should let people know that before advertising the "view." Second, If I am paying a... More

The hotel is located directly across the street from the beach. It's a terrific location if you want to walk down and sit on the sand. But the beach sand is not very deep. Once you get into the water you find out that it's really a rocky beach. Walking on rocks is not the only painful issue. If a... More
