I have stayed in this hotel in the past and the first time I stayed there is was great. This second time around I was not at all pleased with the room based on how clean it was. The rug smelled of foot odor, the TV remote still had caked on food from the last person staying there. The rug... More

The Beach View Lodge is a great location to enjoy all of Carlsbad. Across the street from the beach, lots of restaurants within walking distance, everything is so close by. We enjoyed the breakfast and the ocean view terrace. The rooms are nice, very clean and parking is not a problem.

This hotel is right across the street from the ocean & a beautiful beach--as close as you can get in Carlsbad. We had a Classic King room on the 3rd floor for 3 nights with a great view of the ocean & sunset. Having knee issues, I had requested a room that required NO stairs. When we checked in, I... More

Great location. You can see the ocean from the sun deck and from the breakfast room. Very comfortable bed. Enjoyed the fireplace. Having a kitchen was useful. Easy access to Legoland and to San Diego Activities. Parking is limited. Two out of three nights we could not find a regular space.

Stayed at the Best Western Beach View Lodge in Carlsbad, CA. Totally enjoyed the great location (right across from the ocean) which is why we were there in the first place. Very friendly staff, hotel was clean, bed comfortable. Each room has a view of the ocean. Good free breakfast with a great ocean view from the dining room or... More

We booked 3 rooms at this hotel for a family and friends get together. Everyone was extremely satisfied with this hotel. The location is fantastic...right across street from the best beach in Carlsbad. They have covered parking. The location is close to everything so we walked everywhere from restaurants to shopping. The rooms are very large, with plenty of seating... More

Extremely pleased with your hotel. My family had never been to Carlsbad and your hotel was a great find. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool. My wife and I espcially enjoyed the sund deck at sunset. We cannot wait to return.

My wife and I usually stay at the Marriott in Oceanside, Ca., We live on the beach there and my grandchildren are to young to swim in the ocean so we spend our weekends at a hotel because they are heated and the kids can enjoy swimming. My wife was looking at the reviews at this location and was worried... More

We were in over a busy weekend and the young gentlemen at the desk, I believe his name was Erik, was so pleasant under the conditions he was working under, displaying great multi-tasking skills with multiple phone calls along with folks waiting at the front desk. He maintained such a calm demeanor and yet he made us feel so welcome!... More

My daughter and I had a great time at this hotel. We had a great Ocean View, breakfast on the Veranda was yummy and it was great to be able to walk right across the street to the beach and down the street to the town. Didn't have to drive my car for the 4 days I was there. It... More
