For the past two years, my partner and I have come to stay at this wonderful, wonderful place. Every single visit for us has been nothing short of perfection, and we have never left feeling dissatisfied. From the very start, the staff here has always been so helpful, and extremely friendly. I myself work in the hotel business, so I... More

A cozy boutique hotel with a family feel to the staff. Rooms are all remodeled and kept in fantastic condition. This property is right on the beach with fantastic views. Ocean view rooms are highly recommended and we enjoyed sleeping with the balcony door open all night to hear the surf. Also enjoyed the ocean view from our private balcony,... More

I cannot say enough about this Inn. We LOVED it. The staff was so friendly. The view was breath taking. Nice breakfast in the morning. The beds were so comfortable. We unfortunately was only able to stay one night but we are heading back to stay a week for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We had a partial view room with... More

This hotel was amazing and I don't think the pictures on the website do it justice! We splurged on an ocean view and pool view and the extra cost was well worth it! The room was HUGE and so was the bathroom, the view was awesome and it was such a plus that you can check out beach umbrellas and... More

This was our second year to stay here. Last year we had a wonderful time and were really looking forward to this year's stay. Unfortunately, it was not enjoyable. The WiFi connection is terrible. The maid missed cleaning our room. I stopped by the front desk to make sure it got cleaned and despite being promised it would happen, we... More

I wanted to feel like I was on vacation being just 60 miles from home, and this hotel did the trick. It is located in a prime beachfront location nestled in a residential area. It is easy walking distance to Carlsbad Village, which hosts the fabulous Pizza Port among many other eateries. The hotel is multi-level with ocean views from... More

Carlsbad is a lovely town, great atmosphere of a small Californian town, with great craft beers. Just a cool vibe and tim to... More

Exceptional rooms and service. The pool staff was fabulous. They were always asking us if we needed anything as well as the front office staff who were so personable. The breakfast hostess was so sweet and greeted us every morning and made us feel at home. Housekeeping kept the rooms super clean. We have stayed at many hotels and this... More

Surprised to find this location feeling like our private beach. The website photo looked like it set back from beach. The rooms were large and updated. Will be a place I will return to. The staff was friendly and helpful.
