This is a great hotel with a great location to the beach and within walking distance to numerous restaurants. For the value you pay, this is a great place to stay! We normally do not stay in this type of hotel as we typically stay in more upscale places; however, this is our 2nd time staying here and we thoroughly... More

Since it was our last night in California before heading home, we decided to splurge and stay by the beach. We were not disappointed! The beach was just across the street and with its close proximity to shops and restaurants, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. The room itself had a balcony with chairs, was large...

Upon arrival we were greeted with a smile and the friendliness just continued during our stay. Everyone so nice were able to answer the questions we had about the area. I know this is what you expect in a hotel but very seldom get any more. Having breakfast on the terrace over looking the ocean is the way to start... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks while flood damage was being repaired in my home. From my arrival to my departure, I was absolutely blown away by the incredible customer service and clear attention to detail that this property adheres to. It's obvious that the staff genuinely enjoy their jobs and this energy was contagious. Yes, the property is an older... More

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
