WHAT A TERRIFIC PLACE! The rooms are clean, relaxing and have kitchen features, which is great for a family. It is across a small street from the beach in a relatively safe area. the grounds are beautiful, there is an adequate pool and jacuzzi, and best of all , mom and dad can go down to the courtyard in the evening and relax with a glass of ?, in front of a fire-- while the kids are asleep or watching tv in the room. You can see most of the rooms right from the courtyard so it makes for a very relaxing evening to visit with other adults ! Also, there are barbques available for your use.
only drawback--parking is very limited, so when you find a place, walk everywhere you can ! also very close(walking distance) there is a part of the beach that has life guards - you can drive and park or walk-its close enough!
Carlsbad itself is much more family oriented than other areas of san diego beaches. We didnt see alot of homeless or rough looking persons as we have in the past in the misson beach area.
We would absolutely go again !
