“Best hotel for non driver near Legoland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for summer vacation .
We like this hotel. It's not the best hotel but charming enough for family stay
They provide free shuttle bus. All u need to do is to book it 25 mins early . But for peak hr u may need to wait for 1.5 hr .
The bus can take 9 ppl at once. Bus Service is really great.
The only complain is they forgot to clean our room one day.
The beach is just next door. It's amazing beautiful.
We will for sure to come back

My family used to live in Carlsbad, and we always try to visit. Staying at the new Carlsbad Hilton was wonderful! Very clean, comfortable and was provided excellent service. I highly recommend the Hotel.

We decided to book a few days at the California coast, and chose Carlsbad as it is away from San Diego but close to shopping and great food experiences. We enjoyed the pool and the beach is across the street from the Hilton Carlsbad and they are very family friendly. Great staff and quiet rooms.

My wife and I stayed for four days in April. The room didn't have much of a view but we weren't in it much. It was large, clean and quiet. The restaurant was top notch. The staff were friendly. The hotel is across the street from a lovely long stretch of sandy coastline. It makes for a good stroll. This is a good base to travel by rental car from. Convenient to San Diego and just two hours from L.A.

We love the area and the Hilton is a beautiful place to stay. The room was clean and spacious. The beach is a short walk across the street. What I liked best is that everyone who worked here from the valet, front desk, restaurant staff etc. all were very pleasant. The one thing I don't like is convince of staying in town and being able to walk to our favorite restaurants and shops. I would for sure stay here again!

Rooms were large, clean, and inviting. Amenities were upscale and everything looked to be in new condition. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Pool was large and there were plenty of lounge chairs and cover. Beach was short walk across Carlsbad Ave. restaurant was normal for a Hilton. Nice and quiet getaway yet close enough to see all San Diego attractions.

The property is in a very quiet, secluded area. The rooms were clean and large with nice amenities. The pool area was great with plenty of seating and coverage from the sun. The beach was a short walk across the road. It is close enough to Sand Diego to see the attractions yet not so close as to have to deal with the sprawl. The staff was great and very helpful.
