“Nice hotel beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

The evening on the patio in front of the fire place was a little cool, but not so much to prevent children playing in the pool. I ordered the special from the restaurant the night of my stay and was very pleased with the service and the meal was delicious. The view from the dinning room table was pretty sweet to during sunset. I arrived to late to get a room with an ocean view so I just elected to sit in the dinning room and enjoy the view. Many people walked across the street but it was pretty windy so my view was fine.

good overnight stay near legoland. Breakfast was great but not always included, check your reservation. The walls were quite thin and noise was both late at night and early morning. It is a very pretty property and parking is not included.

All the staff was super friendly and efficient. The hotel was all together a wonderful place to stay and myself and the kids enjoyed our night swim in the pool! It was very clean and they even provide pool towels, which was wonderful since I forgot ours.

The property was absolutely beautiful! We have stayed at many Hilton Gardens and this one tops the list for location and gorgeous property grounds. However, there was a large party in the pool area. After calling the front desk twice the party was finally broken up by security, an hour after quiet hours had begun, around 11pm. Bring your earplugs if your room faces the pool area!

I recently stayed and had a great vacation thanks to the staff and great accommodations at Hilton Carlsbad.
From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The front staff went over all amenities and recommended local attractions we might enjoy. The beach , view and poolside were perfect and exactly what we were looking for.
I recommend to anyone looking for a great escape.
We are going to make this our new place to stay while traveling to California.
Thank you again for making my stay feel like a true vacation!
Kesty Click & John Angel clients for life!

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach for two nights on a brief solo vacation. I had stayed at the hotel twice before in the past – once in 2000 and once in 2004. Although I hadn’t been to the hotel in 10 years, it was as nice, if not nicer than I remembered. As a woman traveling alone, I felt 100% safe at the hotel and in the surrounding area.

The hotel is located directly across the street from the ocean. The bluff offers a perfect vantage point for breathtaking sunsets. There is access to the beach just a short walk south on the Pacific Coast Highway. There are many restaurants and an outlet mall nearby, and it’s also very close to The Flower Fields and Legoland.

My room was spacious and impeccably clean. I had a room overlooking the pool area, and it was nice to have a sliding glass door that opened to let in the beautiful breeze. The bathroom was very clean as well, with a lot of space, great shower pressure and Neutrogena bath products. The water in the sink had an odd sulfur-like odor, but the shower did not. There were plenty of outlets for charging, plus a refrigerator, microwave and a Keurig coffee/tea maker. Each evening, the hotel puts out fresh cookies for the guests.

Although I didn’t eat breakfast there, I had light dinners at the hotel restaurant both nights of my stay and the food was delicious.

I would recommend the Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach for anyone visiting Southern California. It’s about a 30 minute drive south to San Diego or 15 minutes north to Orange County.

Room Tip: Request a room on a high floor facing the ocean or pool. The sliding glass doors are nice to let in...

It is a nice small Hilton; Grounds are nice, rooms are clean it's pretty nice. Two important things to note.
#1 It is across the street from a cliff and at the bottom of the cliff is the ocean, the beach is a couple of miles up the road.
#2 It is miles from the village of Carlsbad. Meaning you won't be walking to the shops or out to dinner.
