My husband and I and 2 of our grandkids just had a wonderful weekend at the Carlsbad Inn Beach resort! It was well staffed, and everyone was so friendly and helpful. The pool was heated and the area was lovely, with an ocean view. Nice spacious grass area with fire pits, for sunset watching! Our room was so nice, with a fireplace, nice big jacuzzi tub! There were several restaurants to choose from within walking distance. You can walk to the beach in about 3 minutes, beach chairs and other equipment is available for your use. We had a great time there! Would recommend it highly!
