We were looking for a room with a view close to the beach, the rooms face the street and have partial view of the ocean. The breakfast area is wonderful with tables inside and out to enjoy the AMAZING views of Carlsbad Beach. The Hotel has free carport parking and the parking on the street is free and plentiful also.... More

Stayed at this hotel while attending an event nearby. Hotel is perfectly located across the street from the ocean and boasts some amazing views. The staff who checked me in was very polite and well informed on the area. Pool is tiny but the ocean is right there. Only issue is the bathrooms are tiny and entering the rooms has... More

If you want to go to the beach in Southern California, you couldn't do much better for the price. BWP is across the street from a great beach and a block or two away you can find everything else you need. There are bike and boogie board rentals, a liquor store, GREAT fish taco restaurant on the beach across the... More

This motel was an excellent location, very reasonable rates, well appointed, quality furnishings and friendly staff. We stayed for 2 days while visiting family in Oceanside and will likely stay there again.

Convenient and nice hotel to spend family vacation at beach. King suite (room 72) had a nice view of ocean and was clean, roomy, comfortable, and quiet for sleeping. Free breakfast is decent and the friendly staff continued to keep the selection stocked. Added bonus that the lounge and patio look out at the ocean! The pool and jacuzzi and... More

My wife and I stayed here during her birthday weekend. The hotel staff was wonderful. They made us feel at home and we were able to get right to our room. As we were checking in, there was a bicyclist that was struck by a car in the street outside. I saw the hotel manager and maintenance man rush to... More

mostly a family hotel, very little relaxation to be had. Great location but was looking for so much more. Easy check-in, beautiful layout and design. Room was large, overlooking the pool and courtyard. Problem was door closures were not serviced regularly and doors were slamming from 0900 until early afternoon when most of the guests had left for the day... More

Great room, clean and updated. The bed was so comfortable. Great views of the ocean and walking distance to tons of great spots to eat. The breakfast was free and really good. Best of all, even though the hotel is in a busy spot it was very quite at night. We loved it here and hated to leave.

The hotel is newly renovated but they forgot to do something to improve the flushing of the toilet and the locking mechanism to the sliding door to the balcony. Other than these two issues, the breakfast was good (although I do not like using plastic utensils and bowls & plates). Service was good.

The Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge is the perfect location for spending vacation time in Carlsbad. The staff was so friendly, especially the front desk and breakfast coordinator. The hotel provides towels for the pool and free, no hassle parking. The breakfast was filling and it was a joy eating it out on the second floor deck watching the... More
