The hotel has the best location for going to beach. It's literally right across the street. The hotel itself was a little outdated. It had windows that didn't have coverings so a lot of sun comes in right as it rises. There were a lot of kids when we stayed and they were running up and down the hallway and... More

This hotel is wonderful. Most importantly the value of the room for the location was great. Right across the street from the beach with a wonderful ocean view. The ladies at the front desk were great and very accomodating. The pictures of the rooms do not do it justice, the beds are extremely comfortable and the large bathroom has plenty... More

I've stayed at this location the last 3 years, and will go back next year. There was no need to check other hotels. At each stay, hotel is clean, the staff great, and very helpful. I love the location, and access in and out of parking. Breakfast is free, and always fresh. Relaxed atmosphere, feels like I am at home... More

This hotel is very conveniently located to the beach, restaurants, and shops. Staff was very friendly and helpful, especially at check in. I was surprised and pleased to find covered parking. Once I parked my car, I never moved it until we left because we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Reasonably priced.

The Staff at the Best Western Carlsbad were wonderful, they were very friendly and accommodating with our entire family. The Actual location of the hotel is perfect, by several restaurants and the beach. The actual hotel definitely needs to be upgraded. The mattress was caved in the middle and the sheets were pilling all over. My major concern was the... More

You couldn't ask for nicer staff, clean rooms, fairly spacious, good breakfast - beautiful views for breakfast - saw dolphins and pelicans all morning, okay parking, close to beach and walking to restaurants. Loved that it was not a big hotel like across the street - only negative - toilet and sink separated by hallway, sorta weird, and toilet better... More

Best Western Beach View Lodge was a fantastic choice for us. A perfect location for the beach, free breakfast, friendly staff, comfy rooms, and a deck with a view made for a wonderful family vacation. The only item I would note that was a challenge for my 12 and 15 year old boys was the sluggish internet. For me, it... More

The hotel was clean and the staff very friendly. Very convenient to beach and restaurants. Would likely stay again because of the location. The room was clean. We did not spend much time in the hotel because in Southern California there is much to do rather than spend time in a hotel.

We were very pleased with the convenience of location, the quality and cleanliness of property, and the continental breakfast. It was wonderful to see the beach not only from our room, but to enjoy the great views during breakfast.

This was our second year staying at this place. The first year we asked for a roll away bed and were graciously given one at no charge. Our second time, last week we again asked for a roll away bed and were told we would have to pay an additional $25.00 per night. We were already paying a high price... More
