The Sheraton in Carlsbad is the perfect hotel to please the whole family! My husband golfed, the kids and I went to LEGOLAND and both are in walking distance from the hotel. When we reunited at the end of the day, we finished off with dinner by the pool and a movie. The rooms were larger than expected and the... More

Very pretty piece of property. Hotel was very clean and laid out nicely. Room was large, clean and comfortable. Everyone in the hotel was very nice and went out the way to help with whatever you needed. Only had breakfast there but it was good and they have a nice happy hour in the afternoon. Would go back without any... More

Group of friends attended a wedding in Carlsbad and this was the hotel selected for the guests. It is a great resort. Staff very friendly and helpful. Spotlessly clean. Restaurants were great too. After wedding party on the veranda was perfect.

My overall experience at the Sheraton Carlsbad was fabulous. It is an easy resort to navigate, great staff, and centrally located. The resort is situated high above the coast so the view is more territorial but a short drive to ocean.

Thank you for the Grand Review! We are glad to hear that your stay was fabulous. The Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa is a great location for Southern California, We are a mile and half to the beach, a short distances to both down town San Diego and LA.

I looked forward to the evenings when I could go the Hotel bar and talk sports with Joey Rodriguez, and get treated like an old friend. Joey always had my drink waiting for me. Overall a pleasant experience. The room was cleaned properly and in a timely manner. The restaurant food was exceptional and the wine was top of the... More

As the title reads, great resort with an even better location. Pros: Hotel - Every area of the hotel was always tidy, and well spaced out. Lots of seating areas and green space. Very comfortable atmosphere. Pool - Huge pool, never too busy with a great sized hot tub also. Also has ping pong, pool table, and foosball poolside Gym... More

When you try to please your children who want to go to Legoland, the older ones (and dad) who want to golf, and add in the mom (me) who would really like to relax and perhaps even indulge in a spa treatment (okay... and maybe some drinks by the pool), you really can have it all at the Sheraton Carlsbad...

“you really can have it all at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort” I agree 100%! You hit the nail on the head and why the Sheraton Carlsbad is the place to stay when you are in Southern California. The next time you are here you must book the spa you will be even more pleased with the resort. The team is... More

We brought our 7 year old daughter to Legoland, but did not want to stay at the Legoland hotel (a little too much LEGOLAND). The Sheraton is a nice option for both adults and kids. For the kids: Because it is right next to LEGOLAND, with its own entrance (which is great), most of the people staying at this hotel... More

Great Resort for the whole family! Thanks for the wonderful review of our property. The summer weekends are a blast with movies on Friday and Saturday night. September 27th is the last movie of the Season but they will return next year. If you are looking for a fun place to have New Year’s Eve with the whole family, come... More

I travel to Carlsbad at least twice a year on business and this is the hotel I come back to time and time again. Admitted it sometimes has a strange ambience because it has a business feel but also caters to the Legoland crowd but I actually like this about it. As a corporate guest I get use of the... More

Trolley is great! Takes you right to the beach and then picks you up! Love it! Also complimentary shuttle service to Carlsbad Village was excellent. Will come here again! Valet guys were fantastic and very friendly. Bartenders at restaurant were nice too! Pool is beautiful and had fun day for all. Loved it all!
