This hotel/motel is in a convenient area and the room is spacious. The pool is nice and the fireplace is okay. The bed is comfortable. The pull out couch...not so much. The springs can be acutely felt. The front desk guy (young and immature) needs a refresher class in customer service. Not impressed by his smug attitude. He clearly did... More

I stayed 5 days in the area and travel so much I rarely have time for reviews. I was amazed by the hospitality of the staff at this hotel. I have had trouble at other Best Westerns and had my revervations, but we wanted to stay an extra day..so we took our chances and can honestly say I wish he... More

This hotel turned out to be even better than I ever hoped. We had small children with us for a few days at the beach and the short walk to the beach and the convenient parking made things so convenient. We walked to resteraunts for both lunch and dinner and the rooms were amazing. Open your door and the ocean... More

I was not impressed with the front desk employees during my recent stay at Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge in Carlsbad, CA. When I checked into the hotel, the front desk employee didn't give me map of the hotel and the room that I was placed in was probably the worst room in the hotel. His instructions on how... More

I stayed in their one room with windows that directly face the ocean - outstanding! If you want that room, book the single queen; there is only one. The only downside to that particular room is it faces the street and sidewalk, though on the 2nd floor. If you are sensitive to street noise, probably not for you. But I... More

My husband and I stayed in Carlsbad for a birthday getaway. We love the area and the hotel is in the center of everything. The beach is right across the street with easy access to street level and beach walking. There is a great patio above to enjoy the water and people below. The grounds and pool area are kept... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

The only reason I didn't give this place 5 stars was the consistent musty smell in the room. Everything else was great. Nice room (3rd floor with a balcony view of the ocean), good quality flat screen TV, nice pool and hot tub, pretty good complimentary breakfast (esp. the fresh fruit, yogurt, and pastries). Very polite and professional staff. Close... More
