I would always be happy to stay at this hotel. Has a nice beach view central hang-out area with beverages all day. Pool, spa tub and several room amenities. Easy walking distance to excellent restaurants, convenience store and shopping. Free covered parking. Well maintained and serviced, clean and pleasant.

First things first----the location is awesome, across a midishly busy road is access to the beach and the Pacific Ocean; which for this Midwest kid continues to be awesome even at 53 years old. However, unlike many cities, even those on the beach, this is a clean, safe, old school, friendly (even Midwest friendly) area. Loved the location and the... More

Recently remodeled, this hotel has great views of the Pacific Ocean, the rooms are comfortable with modern fixtures. Located a short walk to the village...There are plenty of wonderful restaurants, all locally owned. To major chains in the village, which is a plus to me.

After arriving to the motel and checking in a little after 9:00, we were given one of the rooms in the front of the property (room 54). Road noise from Carlsbad Blvd was quite loud, so I went to the front desk and requested a new room. The front desk worker explained that they were booked for the evening, but... More

This small hotel on the Carlsbad coast is a gem. The rate was reasonable, the staff exceptional and the rooms were large and comfortable. The room was quiet as well. The view from the deck of the sunset over the ocean is not to be missed. We will definitely go back!

This is a perfect family hotel for getting away to the beach and or going to Legoland. Perfect location just across the street from beach and just a few minutes to Legoland. In room amenities and breakfast were both perfect for families. All employees we encountered were gracious and helpful.We will be back!

We recently stayed at this hotel & couldn't be more pleased. The property was updated in 2014, almost like staying at a "new" hotel. The room was nicely decorated & very comfortable, included a microwave & refrigerator. Outside our door was a deck that overlooked the ocean with lounge chairs, as well as tables & chairs. The guest lounge was... More
