“Carlsbad Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Lovely resort right next to the Pacific Ocean in Southern California, lots of restaurants in walking distance as well as lovely shops. Ideal place to view incredible sunsets. The resort has been recently refurbished to a high standard and is very comfortable .

Room Tip: Ask for sea view as the other side faces the road through town

Our experience at the Carlsbad Inn was amazing. Our one bedroom condo was very spacious, extremely clean and newly remodeled. I took photos of the fabulous new bathroom so I could use ideas for my own home. Carlsbad Inn is located across the street from the beach. We had killer views from our balcony. It is also right next door to great shopping, great dining and a wonderful walking/ running trail on the beach. We also highly recommend the complimentary bike rentals and the ride to the Oceanside Pier.

This is a great place to spend a week for there is so much to see and do in this area. Legoland is fantastic for younger kids. San Diego is so close which has great museums and exhibits for older kids. Plus on the bay are the Navy ships to explore and visit. The units have been nice for 20 plus years and the beach is just across a narrow street that does not have much traffic. The only negative is the parking. You can normally find a place to park but not always so be prepared. If you are arriving or leaving on a Sat or Sun then there is lots of traffic for that is when the units change and there are lots of people checking in and out. So the carts are short handed and the elevators are busy. But the rest of the week is fine.

We stayed at this resort the last week of February, and we stay there this time each year as timeshare owners. Love the location right across the street from the ocean, and walking distance to the Carlsbad Village. There are many daily activities. Always enjoy using the hot tub/spa near sunset and watching the sun sink into the ocean horizon. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance, including Norte's (Mexican) and the Daily News (pastries & coffee/breakfast and lunch) both on site. We didn't use room service.

Room Tip: We prefer the rooms overlooking the green common area, and on the second or third level floors for t...

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.
