Great resort - friendly staff, great ambiance and location. We had a beautiful room with a king bed. The grounds are very nice with several fire pits, a pool and a jacuzzi. They offer bicycles, boogie boards, beach umbrellas and chairs to guests. Walking distance to the beach, great restaurants, and shopping. Can't wait to go back.

We went to celebrate my birthday - 18 of us. The location is great, close to restaurants and shops, as well as the beach. The grounds are beautiful with lots of seating and fire pits. The kids enjoyed the pool and the adults used the hot tub. We loved the library room, where we had cake and opened gifts. Pleasant...

We had wonderful accomodations, it was nice to be able to walk to restaurants. The pool and spa were very nice & clean. The grounds were beautifully kept up. There were many beautiful flowers & foliage everywhere. The fire pits were great after 7:42!! There were very good activities led by some very upbeat people like Terry!! The only disappointment...

This beautiful hotel provided our group of 10 with very clean & comfortable adjoining rooms during our 3-day stay. All had new walk-in showers and bathrooms. The king rooms are quite spacious and contain a bar counter and cupboards, providing us with plenty of space to have our group cocktail parties. The inn's personnel couldn't have been more helpful, making...

We had a another GREAT week at the Carlsbad Inn as we do every year. The Inn is so great we never trade our week. At the Inn you are right on the beach and you can park your car in the underground parking and never have to take it out until it's time to go home. Great places to...

I just came back from a vacation with my extended family. Carlsbad is a very walkable family friendly town. You do need a car rental to get to attractions but there are many many restaurants just steps from the resort, and they all have high chairs. The resort is right by the beach. There is a big grass area in...

Right from the time of check in we were impressed with the friendliness of the staff from the front desk to the cleaning staff. We stayed in the king one bedroom. Well appointed with a small kitchen full of all the things you would need to make a good meal. The grounds had various places to BBQ your meal if...

Friendly, clean, especially appreciate the cleaning and lower staff, upper staff "cornball" amature hour worthless crap. Don't waste my time with cheap worthless "incentives". Been to lots of welcoming "parties" and your banter cheapens such a nice resort. Really a lovely setting, ideal location.

We spent three nights here, our first in a standard queen hotel room, and the other two in a one bedroom condo. I wasn't sure how to rate this resort because the two rooms were very different. The hotel room was very small and the bathroom was very old, with paint peeling off the walls and inside the tub. The...

This was a very clean place to stay. They were incredibly welcoming and had a ton of free activities to participate in. They give free boogey boards, beach chairs, bikes, and umbrellas! There were at least 20 boards games to choose from. They have a flyer with all the events going on throughout the day. You are about 30 seconds...
