“Great Location with a view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Our 1 bedroom condo was very nice, excellent furnishings and a well stocked kitchen. The resort was a little older, but they are doing renovations. The rooms and the resort were very clean.The courtyard, pool and fire pits were great. The location was a great. The condo was located in the village of Carlsbad, which was charming. The beach and beach walk were one block away for a daily stroll. The Mexican restaurant next door was fun and had good food. Easy to recommend as I would like to return for another visit. Loved the village of Carlsbad.

Room Tip: Try for interior courtyard room. Other rooms also have some views.

We stayed here for a marriage retreat in February. First, let me say the weather was perfect! We arrived on Friday evening and checked in and parking was easy. Our room was clean and quiet. We slept well. There were lots of activities going on at the inn. There was also a popular Mexican restaurant next to the Inn! We did visit the condos and we were impressed with them. The location was perfect! We had to grab a bite to eat so we went to the seafood/pizza place across the street and we had breakfast at the cafe in front of the inn. We only briefly went to the beach. Access was easy and we could hear the waves from the resort. The town had lots of shops and places to eat. I am a local beach person but I have not been to Carlsbad for years. We can't wait to return for the day or weekend.

This is a wonderful place to stay if you want very easy access to restaurants, shops, and the beach. Great for a family with kids too. Very nice having a small kitchen in the unit and living room. The grounds of the resort are maintained and updated very well for being an older facility which was probably built in the 60s. We will be back to this resort for sure.

First of all the location is great, no complaints there. The cleaning also spotless, which is nice for a longer stay. Bit when all of this is said, this is nearly a old folks home, which is not bad, but just not suitable for a family with a boy of 5. Another minor thing in the folder given by the frontdesk it states that the gym opens at 6 am but it appears it is only at 8 am what a disappointment to stand there early morning knowing that management had not aligned their folder with practice. If you as a family just need it for sleeping while being at legoland, or similar, a good advise is to spend your money elsewhere as it is not that luxury as they want it to be themselves. This is not value for money. Not a bad experience, but not worth the money.

Our first time in Southern California and it was for the Thanksgiving Holiday. The location was beautiful, very well staffed and extremely easy to get to. Our view was overlooking the ocean and the unit had everything we could ask for, including a newly renovated bathroom with gorgeous tile that made us want to redo our own back home. Easy walk down to the beach and along the beach is a wonderful walking trail.
We used their free items for the beach and also checked out their bikes for a day ride to the pier up north. There is a great coffee/breakfast site next to it and a wonderful Mexican restaurant just next to it as well with great specials.
We would highly recommend this location for anyone staying in the San Diego/ Carlsbad area. We took a day drive down to San Diego to Coronado and the Light House overlooking the harbor and it was an easy drive both ways, nice to stay out away from the city. Carlsbad was also a very beautiful place to stay as well.

Green Features: It was a great place for my family. They were very environmentally conscience as they allowed us to make decisions on needing new linens and such and recycle containers all around. Landscaping seemed to be well done to minimize need for watering often and it was still extremely lush to enjoy.

This was my first time staying at the Carlsbad Inn. I highly recommend taking advantage of this hotel if you are in the area. I arrived at night so I was pleasantly surprised when I woke up to a great view of the ocean. The Activities Director was extremely helpful and had great suggestions on things to do. I would definitely return for another visit.
