The only 2 I know of in that area are the Carlsbad Inn Hotel & Beach Resort and a Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge. Check out the reviews for both of them and check their location in relation to the estate on Google maps. If you'll be dressed in heels for the wedding, you might want to call a cab - they're probably between half a mile and a mile away. They're both near a nice little village shopping area that has some good restaurants
I can't find the exact location on a Google map.
I am not sure which lagoon in Carlsbad is the location but it is a residential area without hotels.
IF you are trying to save money I'd really be careful about which airport you use because coming down from LA will cost a lot of money unless you take the train. Any sort of car/shuttle transfer will cost over $100 or even more!
Renting a car may really be the easiest solution.
I'd expect the folks having the wedding would have suggestions or arrangements for hotel rooms.
Thank you for the information. Looks like we will be renting a car, afterall. There was a great "deal" at the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort, but there was no cancellation policy--credit card charge immed. upon booking. I like a little wiggle room-just "in case"! Off to research some other options. The Best Western actually looks like it may fit our needs.........in the center of town, and not too pricey!
