We stay in a lot of upper class hotels. This hotel is one that we will stay in again. It's location is superb, the room rates are reasonable, the clientele is upper class and not rowdy. The staff is very good. Convenience is the game here.

My wife and I took a last minute trip from Palm Desert CA to Carlsbad this weekend to get out of the 115 degree heat. This is the first time we traveled without a hotel reservation. After arriving in Carlsbad we checked out a few hotels and prices. We drove into the Best Western Beach View Lodge just across the... More

I guess I was naive to think a room at this price would be top-notch. The staff tried to be helpful, but the physical problems of the hotel were overwhelming. You had to step UP to enter the room. (Both my husband & I tripped on the sill at different times) There's a LOT of noise from the street and... More

Walking distance to shops and restaurants in Carlsbad. Very Clean rooms and property! The staff was very friendly. This place was more than I expected. Breakfast is your average carb loaded pastry, fruit, and yogurt.

In general the room was nice. The bed was very comfortable. The balcony was a nice size with comfortable chairs but the floor was dangerous, all warped.I also did not like the step into the room and onto the balcony. I love the breakfast and being able to sit outside to look at the beach. the spa was full of... More

Beach View Lodge is a real "find". Close to old town Carlsbad and across from the public beach. Clean, well cared for property, with a friendly helpful staff. Breakfast is fresh fruit, yogurt, pastry, cereal etc served in a lounge overlooking the ocean.Rooms are modern, clean, and well appointed. Prices are reasonable for such a choice location.

Great value, clean rooms, lovely pool and hot tub, lounge and outdoor deck with views of the ocean. Walking distance to many restaurants, the train for trips up to Oceanside or down to Encinitas & San Diego and a 7-11 nearby for supplies. We would gladly stay again. Breakfast wasn't outstanding, but pretty standard continental fare, and the coffee machine... More

Great location across from the beach. Exceptionally clean and well kept! Every single staff member so nice and made you feel welcome. We had the family suite and found it very roomy for the three of us on a girls trip. Breakfast was fresh and a step above most continental offerings. Within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. Will... More

This is an average budget motel. It is in a great location-right across the street from the beach and walking distance to very good restaurants. It has a nice sundeck for guests with a great view of the ocean. Some of the rooms have a partial view of the ocean from the balcony only. The employees were friendly but we... More
