“Excellent service and hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We stayed five nights at the Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge and found it to be excellent in customer service, accommodations, location and cleanliness. The included services like parking, breakfast and internet made the trip more affordable and the employees of the hotel were very friendly and caring. The manager Hayley was very professional and caring towards her guests. It is evident that her service is the standard for the entire staff. I would recommend this hotel to families and couples wanting to have a great time in Carlsbad.

The hotel is located in a prime spot across from the beach and within walking distance to restaurants, shops and activities. It is also only 5 blocks to the Coaster which can be used to travel down to San Diego. We were glad we stayed here and trained in rather than staying in San Diego. The rooms were nice. The only drawback is the hotel is very limited in parking. If you do not get one of the parking spaces (and there are not many) you have to find parking in the surrounding area. Hard to do on a nice beach day. Thanks to Adrian for going above and beyond the call of duty to make our visit memorable.

Room Tip: No elevators so consider if you have a choice of levels. Further back does not have as much beach/s...

My Family came together to stay at the same hotel that my parents so dearly loved. We were in Carlsbad to scatter my mother's ashes. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Great restaurants near by and good access to the beach. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends alike.

I have stayed at this hotel for many years due to its family-friendly atmosphere and beautiful location across from the beach. The upgrades made to the property and rooms in the last year made our stay there that much more enjoyable. Will definitely be back.

Great location and comfortable rooms. Depending on the season, there are flights of pelicans sweeping north and south along the beach, and there is always a lot of activity on the beach and the lawn on the bluff above the beach. Easy strolling distance from the main Carlsbad restaurants and shops.

This hotel is just across the street from the beach. There was plenty of parking and you can walk to shops and restaurants easily. The room was larger than your typical hotel room. The breakfast was good with fresh fruit and the usual continental choices. Beautiful breakfast room and sun deck overlooking the ocean. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

Perfect ! So close to the Beach, barely a 2 minute walk. Hotel is newly remodled and it looks great. Pool & Spa were super clean, which is surprising with it's proximity to the beach. Great Sundeck over looking the ocean. Very close to lots of Shops and restaraunts. (Highly reccomend Jay's Gourmet seafood) Staff was very accomadating and friendly and I can honestly say that my family and I (3 kids) had a perfect time at Carlsbad Beach View Lodge. I am very Thankful for the memories we had there.
