“The Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

On a cold winter December night the people and ambience of the Carlsbad Inn was like a warm greeting hearth in winter. The hosts were excellent, the jaczii was hot, the rooms were nicely appointed and clean and the overall vibe was reminiscent of a high end European ski lodge.

We live in Carlsbad and wanted to walk to our local bars for New Years. This Resort is beautiful, the room was clean, the bed was very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay being locals.

What a wonderful surprise the Carlsbad Inn Resort was! A beautiful resort with emaculate grounds and a view of the Pacific from almost every room. The best part is the access to gorgeous Carlsbad beach. The resort has its own private staircase leading from the resort to the beach sand. The Sand!!! Not a parking lot! Free beach cruisers, boogie boards, sand toys, and even jogging strollers are provided for guest use.

Other reviewers have commented on the many great things about the city of Carlsbad and especially within the Village, but I must recommend Grubby's up Village Drive. Great food and atmosphere.

Why I deducted 1-star? The walls and floors of the rooms are very thin. We could hear guests in the rooms next to us and above us; including the flush of toilets and the subsequent flowing through the pipes in the walls. :p~ Other than that inconvenience, the rooms were comfortable with great appointments.

I highly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard also get a nice view of the ocean.

We recently stayed at the Carlsbad Inn and our entire stay was awesome. Room was clean and with an exceptional view but the best part was the crisp sheets on the very comfy bed. Hot shower surrounded by glass in the marble floored bathroom made us feel we were in the "lap of luxury".
Easy walk to the beach or you could go to the on site activites room to get a work out on modern gym equipment or check out a beach cruiser (bike) to ride down the boardwalk along the beach. Fun shops and yummy eateries within easy walking distance. We rounded out our stay by soaking in the ample sized hot tub. Staff was friendly and helpful. Can't wait for our next stay!

Room Tip: Third floor 361 gives a great view

We were so Happy when our son Surpised us w/ a 2 nite stay at this Beautiful Beach Resort while we had guest & family staying in our home for the holidays. It was so nice to be able to come to such a beautiful resort that welcomed us with with open arms at 11:00pm. I was so glad to be able to get into a great Hot Bath in the luxuary of my bathroom with peace & quite in such a clean & updated suite..
The grounds are so spacious and so many things to do in & around the area.
I will difinately book this place again so that my husband & I can enjoy the night life and not have to worry about the drive home:)

My husband and I are busy parents to 4 kids and we rarely get a chance to have time to ourselves. We were SO glad to have found this gem right in our backyard! We booked a quick, two-night getaway as a Christmas present to each other, checked out the amenities online, and set off for some much needed relaxation.
Our check-in was smooth and fast, despite there being a handful of people checking in at the same time. The front-desk staff were very friendly and efficient, and we were in our room in no time.
Our room was perfect! Comfy queen bed, cute little patio, and CLEAN from floor to ceiling. My husband thought thought the resort had been recently remodeled, and I think he was right. Everything appeared new and was very well appointed and decorated. I also noticed how all the color schemes in every room of the resort coordinated (it's the little things, right?).
After we checked in and got settled in the room, we took a walk around the resort to see what there was to do. The weather was perfect, with a clear, cool day and beautiful sunshine. After checking out the fire pits, ocean view, and jacuzzi, we headed off to happy hour at the nearby Mexican restaurant.
After some cocktails and yummy eats, we headed to the jacuzzi. I was glad to see that the resort has a separate, much larger, "adult" jacuzzi for 18+ guests. We've been to other local resorts that didn't have this, and while we don't always mind kids, I was nice to be able to relax without being splashed by rambunctious tots. Nothing completes a romantic evening like a soak in the jacuzzi under the stars.
The next morning we ate breakfast and took a quick detour to the house to check on the kids. We picked up our 9yo son and took him back to the resort to swim. It was great to have some fun with our little guy in the sunshine! the pool was the perfect temperature and he really liked the kid jacuzzi.
After dropping our son back home, and grabbing some dinner, we sat out by the fire pits and enjoyed some wine under the stars. The fire pits were very big, and had plenty of room for anyone who wanted to stop by. The furniture was very comfortable, and once again, everything seemed brand-new. Very classy evening.
After another night in the very comfortable bed, we took a gorgeous walk on the beach and noticed that the resort has a private patio right on the sand! We hadn't noticed that before, and wished we could have watched the sunset from those tables. There's always next time, right!??!!
We had such a nice, romantic time, and were sad to check out. Once again, the front desk staff were awesome and our checkout was quick and easy. Can't WAIT to go again, and would definitely recommend the resort to anyone!

We stayed at this hotel as a two day getaway for Christmas. The ocean front resort is amazing. We had a room with a view, it was crisp and clean. I woke to a beautiful sunrise then walked the beach. There are so many activities to enjoy it was hard to decide. The gym facilities are fantastic, including a dry sauna. The staff was inviting and friendly. The heated pool and spa are centrally located. Even better there is an adult jacuzzi/spa closer to the ocean. We walked across the property to Norte mexican restaurant one of a few to choose from. The meal was fantastic!
This is a great place to vacation. Our stay was both restful for my husband and invigorating for me. You can visit this resort with confidence. I can't wait to go back. The only negative I have is that we couldn't stay longer. A MUST VISIT!!!

Room Tip: Our room had a city view and it was roomy, quiet and beautiful.
