We stayed five nights at the Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge and found it to be excellent in customer service, accommodations, location and cleanliness. The included services like parking, breakfast and internet made the trip more affordable and the employees of the hotel were very friendly and caring. The manager Hayley was very professional and caring towards her guests.... More

The hotel is located in a prime spot across from the beach and within walking distance to restaurants, shops and activities. It is also only 5 blocks to the Coaster which can be used to travel down to San Diego. We were glad we stayed here and trained in rather than staying in San Diego. The rooms were nice. The... More

My Family came together to stay at the same hotel that my parents so dearly loved. We were in Carlsbad to scatter my mother's ashes. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Great restaurants near by and good access to the beach. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends alike.

I have stayed at this hotel for many years due to its family-friendly atmosphere and beautiful location across from the beach. The upgrades made to the property and rooms in the last year made our stay there that much more enjoyable. Will definitely be back.

Great location and comfortable rooms. Depending on the season, there are flights of pelicans sweeping north and south along the beach, and there is always a lot of activity on the beach and the lawn on the bluff above the beach. Easy strolling distance from the main Carlsbad restaurants and shops.

This hotel is just across the street from the beach. There was plenty of parking and you can walk to shops and restaurants easily. The room was larger than your typical hotel room. The breakfast was good with fresh fruit and the usual continental choices. Beautiful breakfast room and sun deck overlooking the ocean. The staff was very helpful and... More

Great Sundeck over looking the ocean. Very close to lots of Shops and restaraunts. (Highly reccomend Jay's Gourmet seafood) Staff was very accomadating and friendly... More

Decent breakfast choices, nice large room, VERY nice employees. The only reason for a 4 rating rather than a 5 is that the wireless was very slow, and tended to drop from time to time. It would also have been nice to have blackout shades on the windows. The shutters didn't keep out the light that is on all night... More

The Best Western Plus was overall a very nice hotel. Rooms were big and clean. Bathroom was a little small. Breakfast was very good for continental. Staff was very nice and helpful. The road noise was a little loud sometimes and there could have been a few more chairs around the pool but overall a good experience.

From the look of the structure from the street, the warm, friendly and helpful staff, the clean, well manicured grounds, the location in Carlsbad - right across the street from the ocean, the well appointed rooms complete with fireplaces, nice water pressure in the shower and walking distance to shops, boutiques and restaurants, staying here was a wonderful experience. I'll... More
