“Wonderful vacation destination!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

The Carlsbad Inn is a wonderful vacation destination --- just wish we had booked a second week!
The building is beautifully kept, staff very friendly and courteous and helpful. Grounds are immaculate as is the pool and hot tub areas.
Walking distance to the ocean -- even a back pack carry style lawn chair and towel available for a beach trip.
We had a third floor room with a great ocean view from the balcony. Kitchen small but very adequate for our needs.
Book and enjoy --we did!!

Room Tip: The higher and closer to the ocean if you want an ocean view.

My family has stayed at this resort a few times. They've remodeled the hotel section and it looks great. The beach is right down the stairs and what a way to start and/or end the day with a walk along the beach. The staff is always courteous, professional and helpful. I recommended it to my family and they loved it. There are some cute stores nearby and the mexican restaurant a walk away and very delicious.

Room Tip: They have a room in the hotel that has a jacuzzi tub and it faces out to the ocean.

This is a lovely hotel right in the heart of Carlsbad Village. The property is immaculate- grounds are beautiful with a lovely grassy courtyard facing the ocean (down two flights of stairs). Our room was spacious, with a nice kitchenette. The bathroom was small, but adequate. The shower/tub enclosure even had a retractable clothes line for drying swimsuits.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The weekly list of activities offered something for everyone: karaoke, wine tasting, chair massage, and more.

We will definitely be back to stay again- we have a family wedding coming up in the fall.

Room Tip: Most hotel rooms do not have an ocean view. Many on the back of the building overlook a passage way...

I was impressed with the look and feel of this beach resort. Has a small feel despite its relatively large size. Staff was friendly and helpful. Steps to beach, shopping and dining. Great spot for family stays, has game room for kids. I grew up in san diego and only recently discovered this resort because of a party my friend held there. Two thumbs up!

Check in was quick and easy at the front desk, rooms were excellent with a great view. Staff was very friendly and helpful. did not visit the pool or hot tub but there was people n them all the time. Parking was under the building and a little tight for larger cars ad SUVs No pressure to buy a unit or take a tour.

We traveled here from Maine. We called several months ahead of time and said we were coming from Maine and could we get a room with a view. They said they would put down our request. When we got here, they gave us a perfect room. The view is amazing. We have the one bedroom, with a balcony. The room is small, but big enough for the three of us. The bed is very comfy and everything is CLEAN. The staff is amazing and it's close to everything. I really don't know what more anyone could ask for.

Room Tip: Call ahead and ask for rooms in Oak on the third floor near the water...
