This is a great new HIE for the area. It is directly off I5 & Poinsettia, it is brand new construction not a remodel. It is walking distance to the beach. I am a business traveler so I have stayed in hundreds of hotels, this is the nicest HIE I have stayed in, in a long time. I was traveling with family and stayed for a week. They have the standard breakfast but with more tables and booths to sit down so you are not waiting for a table. They have a nice pool which is not heated but was warm enough to swim in. They have a Jacuzzi, very nice outdoor seating, a cabana, way more upscale than that of any other HIE's and it is on the south side of the building so the sun hits the pool all day. The staff (Amber and the daytime staff) went out of their way to make my stay great. The city turned off the water for a few hours but the hotel offered to buy a room elsewhere just so I could shower for an important event. We stayed in an executive 2 bed suite which was spacious enough for 6 people. The sleeper sofa has its own tv and space. very nice.
easy access to highway, about 20 minutes north of San Diego. Easy travel to Oceanside, Encinitas, Ca...

When designing the property, we definitely wanted there to be more than sufficient space for our guests to enjoy breakfast and to avoid overcrowding.
We are pleased that you enjoyed relaxing out by the pool area
We are fortunate to have Amber as part of our team and she goes all out to make sure every guest enjoys their stay.
Thank you again and we hope to see you the next time you visit Carlsbad!
