Manteca, California

Very happy with our stay. Sure the resort is a little dated and it could use some exterior work updates. Our room was comfortable and cozy.The grounds are in great shape and the beach was simply steps away. My only downside was being forced to pay a resort fee for the week.($140)I consider these fees a surge charge or simply...

We've been going to Carlsbad Inn for almost 15 years now and finally bought a time-share 2 years ago. We were lucky enough to get a 3rd floor unit with a fantastic ocean view. Never ceases to amaze me. They have it all: great rooms ( yes, they need to update their stove tops); great amenities - pool, jacuzzi (one...

Great place to getaway and relax! Room amenities and daily newspaper were a plus! Soap, shampoo, body lotion had a nice scent! An iron board and hair dryer were in the room. Also, kitchen was stocked with pots and pans and dishes and coffee pot with coffee pods.

This timeshare property is well worn. Carpets need replacing, lots of chipped paint in our room, and the appliances are almost antique. With that said, we found the staff to be helpful and accommodating. They called our room to make sure we were comfortable and they provided quick and cheerful answers to our questions. The setting is very nice and...

We stay here often & love our time @ the beach. This week fell on Easter Sunday and it was wonderful. Carlsbad Inn put on a Easter egg hunt for kids of all ages. It was so fun to watch & well organized. The kids had a blast!

I brought my wife to Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort for our first vacation together without our 4 kids. We love this place, and hope to return soon. The rooms were clean, new, and quiet! Only as we left did we learn the neighbors had 3 kids. The grounds are gorgeous, and the view of the ocean was nice. Just a...

We have stayed at this inn before. First time was OK, second time less than OK. The resort's location is definitely the best feature. Paid extra for a "premium" level room. Don't bother with this! If you think you're going to get a "premium" view think again. Our room was at the very end of the hall on the 3rd...

All around awful experience! The staff was most discourteous and unhelpful I don't even know what their point is behind the desk! We paid for an upgraded room with a balcony, that was not what we received! Things in the room did not even work properly had to constantly call maintenance and some of the things still didn't work after...

Lovely place, good customer service, friendly employees. Walking distance to the beach, several restaurants, pubs, shops. Fun town tours, would definitely come bank. Word of advise, do not go into the book store in town, horrible customer service, man there unfriendly and horribly rude.
