I attended an industry conference that was held at a local resort. My colleagues paid more than twice as much to stay at the resort and did not have nearly as beautiful a view from their rooms. The young lady at check in was very friendly and quickly assigned me a room even through I arrived early (12:00 p.m.). My... More

Always stay at this hotel in Carlsbad. Convenient to beach and downtown area. The hotel itself is excellent. Although we haven't used it the pool and Jacuzzi are well used, and enjoyed by all. They even provide beach towels if you want to swim in the ocean, brrrrr.

Location of this hotel is perfect! Breakfast with a view was exceptional. Staff friendly and helpful. This time of year and any time of year, the ocean view is just stunning. Will stay there again and recommend to others.

We have stayed here several times over the last 25 years and this was our best stay. The very much needed redecoration was done extremely well and both the room and the common spaces are very nice. The ocean view from the common deck is supurb - we could make a day of it just hanging out there. Staff is... More

We enjoyed our stay in Carlsbad - and if you do not mind sleeping with the windows closed, nor care much about an ocean view this is a very nice value. Clean rooms, friendly staff, nicely maintained grounds. However - the Ocean view rooms are actually side street rooms - the balcony is kind of rough and you have to... More

The staff was incredible. As often as we stay in hotels, this by far, has the most friendliest and courteous staff. Directly across from beach access, this is the place for ultimate relaxation. Right down the street from 'downtown' restaurants, stores and activities, this is the perfect place to escape for a weekend or even weekday to.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay here. The open outdoor space has a excellent place to sit and enjoy beach views and sunsets. The room was great. There are lots of restaurants and shops in walking distance and you are right across the street from the beach.

Stayed for 2 nights on business. I picked this hotel due to the location. Its just over the road from a lovely beach and within walking distance of many bars, restaurants and shops. They offer free parking and breakfast which had a good selection of hot and cold food in a lounge over looking the ocean. A great start to... More
