“Well situated comfortable place to stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

This is nicely situated on the beachfront away from the bustle of the town.

Rooms are comfortable, and with good amenities.

Breakfast was satisfying with a good selection.

Has a shuttle bus which is handy for local restaurants.

Would stay there again, and would recommend it to you.

Room Tip: All room seemed to be quiet, so I would go for the sea view.

My experience's at this Hotel, is never nothing less than "Excellent". The Staff there always greet me with a warm smile and a friendly hello and welcome back Scotty. Brant, Sheree, and Kyle are "Top Notch" and I'm always happy to see them on my visits. The morning Breakfast is Awesome to say the least. You cant beat cooked to order breakgast and theirs is fantastic.The rooms are always clean and refreshing.

Stayed for 5 nights for business. The location to the ocean and the courtyard are perfect. I really enjoyed being able to cross the street and walk on the beach in the mornings. The rooms and halls are OK. Unfortunately the fitness center is extremely small, only 3 machines, and very busy in the mornings. They wasted a lot of space with a restroom located in the fitness center. A good fitness center is a must for me and luckily the weather was great and sunrise not too late so I could walk outside early mornings. If you stay ask for a room away from the train side of the hotel. It didn't wake me, but you can hear it if you're up.

The staff was very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the backside of the hotel.

Stayed for 2 nights with my son who was visiting a school in the area. We arrived at night and since we weren't familiar with the area we were a little uncomfortable driving in search of a restaurant. The hotel offers a shuttle to guests that took us into the village and picked us up. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, giving us great directions and advice. Our room had a lovely view overlooking the pool out to the beach. It was clean, comfortable and had the usual amenities (refrigerator and microwave). Even though the hotel is on busy Carlsbad Blvd. it was very quiet. I liked the convenience of having the restaurant that provided a wonderful breakfast, including omelets made to order. This was our first trip to Carlsbad, won't be our last and I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for a short business trip to the area. Awesome location across from the beach. Friendly staff with all the basic amenities. Would definitely stay here again next time I'm back in the area for business.
