“A very nice nearly beachfront property...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Always clean comfortable rooms. Outstanding staff, friendly and courteous. Location is beautiful, Carlsbad is but a fifteen minute walk away. Great dining nearby and if you are stuck in the hotel by weather of circumstances, the dining room has great service and prefectly adaquate hotel food.

Room Tip: The coastal train can be a little loud, stay on the front (beach side) of the hotel to avoid this no...

Stayed here for a conference. The beach access is great, right across the street. Very close, north and south, to nightlife, shopping, and food. Rooms were clean, comfortable, even if a bit dated. Breakfast was okay..... There Re so many great food options within 15min from hotel, eat every meal out.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool, third floor

Hilton Garden Inn's are normally very clean. We have stayed in them across the country. This one wasn't. The carpet in the room was very dirty and felt horrible to walk on. There were stiff areas that felt nasty on the bottom of your feet when you walked on it. The chair in corner had stains on it.

Very nice location along the beach. My room (unfortunately) did NOT have ocean view. I am sure you need to pay for the view if you would like to have gorgeous view. Stayed only one night. Front desk people were very very nice and friendly. Elevator was kind of slow...and looked like one of those service elavator. My AC kept making strange metalic noise so it bothered me a bit during the night. Flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi, great. Fitness center was very very small, only had 3 cardio machine and very "steamy" and yucky.

Room Tip: Well, you can ask for the ocean view....

On business trips to Camp Pendleton, we usually stay in this area but this was the first time at this hotel. Very nice location, convenient to Pendleton, Legoland, and beaches. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food and service in the restaurant was very good. Recommended. Would stay here again.

This was an exceptional Hilton Garden Inn. Room had an ocean view, the most comfortable room in weeks of business travel and friendly staff. Nice place for business too. Really have to say the best Hilton Garden Inn I have stayed in.

Originally planned a couple of nights stay, then extended it by two more days. The hotel staff were very friendly and courteous. Great location by the oceanfront and less than a couple of miles to outlet mall and Legoland. Kids played ping pong in the garden and it was overall one of the better hotels I've stayed in.
