The location is excellent. The beach is down the road, 1 minute walking to the beach. However, the room is a little outdated. The fridge in my room was not working properly so i had to throw everything out since I do not know if it was cold enough sustain food quality. There were so many ants coming from the... More

I wish I would've gotten her name because the front desk person was absolutely wonderful. The second we walked in, she greeted us with a big smile, expedited our check-in even when we were a bit early, and provided us with information, not just about the hotel amenities, but the area and weather. The hotel was in a great location,... More

This hotel is one of my favorites priced just right and the staff is always helpful. They will go out of there way to make your stay pleasant. My husband and I always spend at least one night here when we travel to CA to visit our family.

I brought my young family to stay at Carlsbad for a few days so we could visit the beach, Legoland and the Safari Park. The hotel is older but up to day, we had a kings suite. The location is the best part of the hotel, it is right across the Pacific Ocean and within walking distance of downtown Carlsbad... More

The only thing going for the place is the location. The service , the pool and Jacuzzi is below standard. The only place to hang out is the breakfast room, and they restrict the hours. The cost of the room was higher then the best 2 hotels in town!

I have traveled for a living for 20 years, to over 50 countries, and I have never been so poorly treated by a hotel manager. I will continue use IHG hotels, Marriott, and Hilton brands because of this unqualified and unprofessional employee at Best western Plus beach view loge, in Carlsbad CA. Additionally, I will relay our terrible experience at... More

Great lodge right across the street from the beach, great walking to all restaurants and shopping the staff was friendly and the room very clean, the bed was very comfortable. The pool was small but the outside deck was beautiful especially the view.

Our room was very comfortable, even had a fireplace in it, which we didn't use, but it was a nice feature, our room was very clean and I loved the Breakfast buffet every morning... More
