Great place to watch the sun set. I also saw some dolphins from my room. The water is across the road and there is no immediate access to it without going down the "cliffs" on one of the "paths" forged by previous visitors to the beach. (This isn't good for the cliffs and is a bit on the dangerous side, particularly for families.) It appeared that there might be better access about 1/10th of a mile south of the hotel. If you want to be able to sit and listen to the ocean, you'll need to go over/down to the beach because the afore mentioned cliffs and the traffic block most of the sound. The hotel itself is clean and nice. Though it looks like there might be balcony rooms from the pictures, there really aren't balconies. There are a few rooms with "Juliet" balconies, but nothing you can sit out on. The location is about a mile south the NRG power plant. My GPS was a little confused and the sign for the hotel isn't overwhelming, so I went by the hotel initially. Again clean hotel, nice staff, pretty good location since it is closer to the water than most hotels in the Carlsbad area.
