“Truly a #1 resort in the Carlsbad, CA area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2011

The location is particularly great, as it is right dowtown and also has easy walking distance to their beautiful beach! We shopped, ate, walked, got massages & pedicures, played Bingo at the resort, and really enjoyed our first (but NOT our last) visit to this resort!

Give it a try. You will NOT be disappointed!

The Carlsbad is a wonderful spot - across the street from the ocean with access provided. Walking distance to downtown with good restaurants and shopping. Easy access to San Diego, the Zoo and Wils Animal Park and Legoland. Staff is outstanding

Room Tip: All rooms are good

This resort is by far our favorite resort we have ever stayed in. It is as nice as the Disney Resorts or the Ritz Cartons. It is the best resort in the RCI book. We have stayed in Gold Crown resorts, but this one is the nicest one. The attention to detail in the gardens is extraordinary. The furniture was so clean and beautiful furnishings. The pillows made it the best sleep I ever had. The air conditioning was as cold as we wanted it at night to sleep. Everything was top-notch, even the silverware. We loved the restaurant right there and the beauty parlor. The green was just gorgeous and the pools were so clean and warm. Other resorts could take note of a few things. One is that Carlsbad Inn didn't blast music at us. It was quiet. It was immaculate and smoke free. No cigarette butts anywhere. The staff were extremely attentive and responsive immediately. We didn't go through a menu and never reach anyone for a week like at Orange Lake Country Club. Alex or Anthony were right there to answer the phone. There was a simple phone and everything there was uncomplicated. They even had sand chairs and towels in the closet for everyone. They thought of everything. The convenience store was within steps, as well as breakfast place, sandwich shop, Mexican restaurant, and the Pacific Ocean right there giving cool and fragrant breezes to our beautiful balcony overlooking the green. It was incredible, just like I remembered from 20 years ago. The gardeners were top-quality. The flowers were superior. The grass was so green and well cared for. So much to do there even if you don't go to the tourist places. We could have stayed right there all week on our balcony!!! We were so thrilled for my 76-year-old mother, who loved it, as well as our 20-something children. They loved how they could walk to town, to the hot tub, to the beach, etc. Oh, Carlsbad sure has it right with that walking path along the beach. They keep the bikes and scooters off. Very organized. Carlsbad town was so clean, unlike any other place we have been to in years. Cleaner than Newport, RI, Martha's Vineyard, Florida, Orlando, etc. We didn't have a single thing to complain about, and that is unusal for us. Superior management there. Incredible!!! Unlike anything we have seen outside of Ritz Carlton or the higher-end Disney resorts. Sincerely, Dr. and Mrs. Larry Tyson and family May 1-8, 2011

Room Tip: We liked the third floor overlooking the green.

Traveling with a 7yr old and 18yr old can be challenging. The Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort offered something for everyone in my family. The pool for our youngest and wireless connection for my oldest (yes, it cannot be denied, that was the highlight for him...), the beach just across the street for my husband and I.
Not to mention the closeness to a wide range of places; Legoland, San Diego Safari Park, San Diego Zoo, Old Town San Diego, just to mention a few.

We enjoyed our condo that quickly became our home away from home with stove cooked meals, popcorn movie nights and evening strolls around town. Our balcony allowed us to sit and just watch the ocean and count the never ending number of pelicans flying by.
The shower had excellent water pressure, something I always worry about when going away. Especially with long hair, since washing out conditioner can take forever with a weak shower.
On-site we could enjoy the pool and "adult only" hot tub and there is also a gym.
The best was for sure our condo. It had everything you can ask for.
What I liked the least? We only got to stay a week.
We are actually already looking into when we can go there again.
We were already a fan of Southern California, but the stay at Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort made us realize how great a vacation can be.

Room Tip: Third floor is the best!

Our stay at Carlsbad inn was absolutely wonderful.
All of the staff while checking in were very polite, helpful and answered all of our questions. Check in was a breeze.
We stayed at the resort for seven nights. The ocean view from the second floor balcony was beautiful. It was very relaxing to sit on the balcony and soak in the green lawn and the breath taking sunsets. The pool, hot tub and courtyard fire pits were a very relaxing bonus. The beach is just a short walk down a few steps to the sand.
The rooms were spacious and the furniture was nice. Very comfortable. The bed was great. We slept well the entire time.
The house keeping staff was great. Anything we needed they took care of right away. Always a smile, very polite and could not do enough for us. The maintenance staff was amazing. Every morning cleaning the pool, hot tube, Fire pits. Taking care of the lawn and planters. Very well taken care of. Always nice and clean.
We stay at a resort for our vacation each year. This has been the best resort ever!. We are going to try and make an extra two or three day trip each year just to go back to the Carlsbad Inn resort. It was that Nice!

Room Tip: Oceanview room. Second or third floor. West end.

We stayed one night in the hotel prior to a week in our timeshare. We were part of a eight room block for my granddaughters wedding. Hotel was very accommodating to the needs of the wedding party. Many of the guests were from Idaho & Minnesota and loved the sun, the beach and the pool. The renovated pool, garden and jacuzzi areas is a beautiful addition to the property as is the renovated lobby and lounge area.

Room Tip: Rooms on beach side quieter.

Great customer service really shows. When it turned out there was a problem with our reservation over the Easter weekend, the management and staff did their best to fix the problem and make sure we were satisfied and comfortable. We were really impressed. That, added to the fact that the resort is so classy and comfortable, makes us sure we'll stay there again.
