Everything about this place is great except the Wi-Fi. And when you are on the ocean, who really needs Wi-Fi? Very convenient to all the shops and restaurants Carlsbad has to offer. If there is anything else you need, someone will be ready to provide it at all times. We love this place. I would have liked the NFL network... More

We booked a courtyard room, and we were disappointed to discover that it came with a view of the roof of a building a few feet away and that in order to see the small courtyard we had to walk to the edge of the balcony and look down. Fortunately we were able to negotiate moving to a pleasing room... More

Opened door to my room to discover a well appointed room with full view windows and balcony looking out onto beach and ocean, Not neat the beach- right on the beach. You could hear the whisper of each wave as it touched the beach and retreated. Then my daughter and son-in-law joined us from their room as we all set... More

My girlfriends and I had a great weekend. The weather was perfect in Carlsbad. The room was clean and had a view of the ocean. Since there were three of us, we requested an extra chair for the balcony, plus an coffee cup and extra wine glass. They were all brought to us quickly and delivered with a smile. We... More

This is probably the only walk-out beach-front hotel on this stretch of beach. Breakfast included, very pleasant, it surprised us with the selection of fruits, breads, yoghurts, bagels. Internet included but spotty and oh-so-slow. An easy walk to the village. Paon Restaurant is the best in the area with great wine list. One can walk on the beach at least... More

We are a couple, no kids, and loved the location. You are on the beach, literally, not just across the street. The Carlsbad Village train station was two blocks away which was perfect ,as we flew into San Diego , and took the Coaster train, which was only $5.50each each way. Beach was very quiet, and at night time the... More

Great location. Walking distance to everything. Didn't need to rent a car. Very convenient to take the Coaster from the airport. Stayed in an ocean front room. Fantastic view. Great service. The people who work here are wonderful. Can't wait to go back.
