I was welcomed as the first guest, post COVID-19 and low occupancy. They put my gf and I in the loudest lower corner possible, our room a few feet from the heavily trafficked Carlsbad boulevard and sidewalk. A call to change rooms at the front desk resulted in the new mantra we will all hear for a while: “ We cannot permit room changes at this time due to the COVID epidemic“, the final insult being the delivery of a pair of ear plugs set of earplugs they delivered . As well the room details are mediocre at best with some badly needed paint touchups and a very loud faulty front door. As well the bathroom exhaust fan did not work.

The resort is conveniently located within all the action along Carlsbad Blvd. Currently the resort is under construction so the pool was closed. Beach access is easy, although their are a lot of stairs, and it is very nice that each unit has 2 beach chairs in the room. The unit kitchens are small and I don't think many people cook like at other resorts we have stayed at. The supply of pots and pans was limited and there were no cookie sheets or large pans, like to make a pizza with. You have to make your own ice with ice cube trays. Our trays both leaked. It is odd that you have to make your own ice and the ice machines have a sign on them that says not to fill your coolers with the resort's ice. There was a sign on one that suggested you walk across the street to the 7 11. This surprised me, especially since you pay $20 day for resort fees. I am not sure why, however, especially with the pool closed. If the $20 is really for parking underground at the resort, they should just call it that. If you have young kids there are not a lot of activities like at many places. We were fine with the beach and the courtyard and a good book. The sunsets were beautiful. The bed and the pillows were great!

This place is right across the street from the Ocean and walking distance to several restaurants. The flower fields and outlet mall are a short drive from the resort also. We go once a year for short getaways

Conveniently located to everything in Carlsbad Village. Can walk to shops and restaurants. Easy access to highway. Across the street from the beach making for a great spot to watch the sun set. They provide beach towels and chairs if you wish to sit on the beach. Plenty of lounge chairs available in the courtyard for lounging. Firepits were lit every evening. There was construction/maintenance going on during our visit so we had to change rooms after the first week. Overall though, not a nuisance. Small gym open 8-8 every day. Lots of activities every day. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Coffee/tea and newspapers were available in the common area every morning. Lots of opportunity to mingle with other guests. Maybe 10 minutes max drive to Camp Pendelton if you need access to a base. Coin operated laundry available. they provided light service (towels and trash) every Monday and Friday and a light clean on Wednesdays. It was never a problem if we needed something like dish soap during the week. Covered parking was included - and much appreciated as street parking was at a premium right on the beach. $30/day resort fee was high and made this less than an ideal stay. Great stay! Would definitely be on our list if we are in this area again.
