Loved this hotel. Could not ask for a better location! Tons of restaurants and quaint shopping is within walking distance. There is a wonderful little lodge with balcony where you can get your breakfast and enjoy the sunrise. Nothing better than watching the waves come in. Employees are exceptional! The rooms are clean and comfortable. Parking is tight, but available.

This hotel was one of the best we have ever stayed in. The staff at the front desk were extremely friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for enjoying the sunset and exploring Carlsbad Village. The large deck and the guest lounge both face the beach. The bed was super-comfortable. We had the room with one king-sized bed. It could... More

Easy check-in and check-out.Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was more than we expected. The beach is literally across the street! The location was perfect for long walks on the beach and wandering around the Carlsbad shopping/restaurant areas. Great value!

I stayed at this hotel as it is very close to LEGOLAND I spent the day with my daughter there. about a 15 minute drive to a beachfront hotel. also near the hotel we found a sandwich shop and ice cream store very enjoyable. the hotel is a great bargain for the experience.

Thank you for the 5 star review Jeb! We love our beach side location and easy access to awesome attractions like LEGOLAND. We are glad you and your daughter had a great time in town and were able to find some local spots for lunch and ice cream. We can't wait to see you again soon! More

The hotel is across the street from the ocean but all the rooms either face the courtyard or the side street. Some balconies have a slight view of the water. There is a lounge on the second floor facing the ocean and that is where the very nice continental "plus" breakfast is served. Our room was very clean, so we... More

Have never stayed in a Best Western Plus property that gave so little thought to accommodating the handicapped...especially those in a wheelchair. No ramps to get to the breakfast and view area of the ocean...only several steps to be negotiated. Elevator that "lurched" before engaging to go up or down.

We prefer to stay here whenever we are able to come to this area. The location is just perfect for walking about the city and also for walking in full view of the ocean in both directions absent traffic problems. Numerous restaurants are easily accessible as are shops to peruse. The hotel is well located so that the ocean is... More

Location is ideal for great beach front views and walking distance to restaurants and bars. The hotel seemed like a family friendly place, but if you're looking to sit back and relax you may want to look elsewhere. If you depend on the internet this isn't the place for you. The covered garage was nice, but other guests would often... More

After staying at two other Best Western's in California, we were disappointed in this one. The location and view were wonderful but the hotel itself was showing its age. We had no wifi in our room although we were able to pick it up in the breakfast room. We had to run the water for almost 5 minutes to get... More
