“Perfect Place to Relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2009

What a wonderful find nestled in the heart of downtown Carlsbad. The whole village is quaint and the Carlsbad Inn exemplifies the feel of the town. Hang at the pool and enjoy the view, walk along the beach or just kick around the town - this hotel offers it all. The rooms are wonderful for travelers with kids as there are options for a small kitchenette allowing hungry family members to enjoy non-stop snacks without breaking the budget. Definitely will go on the top places to stay list of this family.

I own 3 weeks here, and trade my other two California weeks into the Carlsbad Inn, whenever I am able. The rooms are spacious, clean and generously equipped. The beach is gorgeous, anytime of year. And the staff?? Fantastic, Friendly, and Personable!!
Activities are many and varied, allowing for one's own personal level of involvement (or not). I have found the various activities to be a great way to meet others, especially when vacationing solo.
This is a resort you will want to return to often! (Just save a few weeks for me.)

I've stayed at the Carlsbad Inn previously and wanted to stay again! The atmosphers is warm and friendly and the rooms are comfortable and inviting as well as meticulously clean. The grounds are beautifuly manicured and lush - and it doesn't hurt that you're next to the beach. Of all the great qualities of the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resport, I have to add that the staff made my stay all the more special. Their attention to detail and their friendly and helpful manner made me feel like I was a VIP. Can't wait to go back next year!

It is a non-smoking venue. It's very busy in the summer with many families with children in residence. Other times of the year it is quieter. It has a throw back ambience which I enjoy. Staff is very willing to address any concerns one might have.

This was our second vacation to Carlsbad and we have stayed at the Carlsbad Inn both times. It was a perfectly relaxing vacation for our family with young children. The quaint Carlsbad Village is within easy walking distance.

My daughters wedding was in nearby San Marcos. When I booked rooms for the out of town guests at Carlsbad Inn I did not imagine the incredible experience we would all have. The group coordinator was very responsive and helpful both prior to and during our stay. We had guests from all over the states who stayed there and they all basically said they felt like they came for a wedding and got a vacation as a bonus. We had guests near 90 down to age 4. The service was pleasant and responsive. The location was ideal with enough for everyone to do both on grounds and off. I didn't have to worry about entertaining anyone and when I wanted to the staff helped set up a memorable picnic on the lawn. The library became a favorite meeting place to plan, chat and get to know each other as we went about our day. The rooms were clean and quaint and roomy enough. Staying at the Inn made the wedding weekend extra special and reduced my stress.
