A very disappointing stay. From broken door security latches, to non-operating elevators, to non-working phones, to spiders crawling around on the room walls, to non-caring staff, it was a terrible stay. This is an older property that should no be considered a Best Western Plus and as a Diamond member of BW, I expected more but got less. I was... More

What a beautiful location! My kids and myself enjoyed the easy access to the beautiful beach! The fish restaurant across the street is so delish! Enjoyed the Flower Fields, two nights of the nearby Farmers Market! Also the complementary breakfast in the wonderful upstairs full view room! The kids enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub were an added bonus!

Stayed here for 1 night on April 2,2014, room 49. Affordable at $148 with tax included. Best Western lodge is small but clean and cozy. Conveniently located a street away from Frazee Beach. Check in was so easy. Parking area attached to the room so also convenient. They have a microwave and refrigerator inside the room. The bathroom is big.... More

I enjoyed the venue, good view, even though it was right next to the street the room was pretty quiet. They hotel is walking distance from the quaint downtown carlsbad. Not a spectacular hotel BUT i paid $150 for an ocean front room that I booked the same day which i think is pretty good.

My son decided it was time for a mini-vacation, so he decided that Carlsbad would be a great place to go. I made reservations for us at the Beach View Lodge. We were not disappointed! Check in was a breeze and so was check out. Everyone was polite and very helpful. The room and grounds were well kept. The outdoor... More

I really liked this hotel. It was in a great location. We were able to sit out on the deck or in the lounge and watch the ocean and the people. I could even hear the ocean at night when my window was open. I loved that.

This is a small building, so I was surprised by the size of our double queen room; it was quite big and spacious with a modern and classy look and very clean. The room has a small fridge, coffee maker, microwave, hair dryer, iron, etc. It has a small spa and swimming pool and the beach is crossing the street.... More

This is a quaint, small hotel, directly across the ocean. The bed was really comfortable, and the shower/toilet was separate from the sink, so you can keep the showers going in the morning. Our room wasn't an ocean view room, but we had a view of it from one of our windows. If having a balcony overlooking the ocean is... More

My Fiance and I took a weekend getaway to relax and spend some quality time together! This hotel was perfect! We were right across the street from the beach and there are plenty of places to eat within walking distance of the hotel so we didnt need to move the car once it was parked! We recommend Pizza Port if... More
