This hotel is situated right in the heart of Carlsbad Village and directly on the Ocean. Our room is a one bedroom condo, so we're super happy. The kitchen is small, but well stocked. The pool area is lovely with a large inviting hot tub.

Very comfortable, wonderful location, friendly accommodating staff, very clean, great bed linens (important to me). About 30 restaurants within walking distance, and a great breakfast place just a few steps away. Totally conducive to a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

This property exceeded my expectations. The room was impeccably cleaned and the attention to detail was awesome. From the kitchenware (flatware, dishware, cooking) to the most comfortable pillows EVER. Steps away from the beach literally, there were beach chairs in the closet! what ?! The location was just perfect, walking distance to downtown Carlsbad, went to the farmers market, dinner...

We love this resort! It is walking distance to many great restaurants, shops, and a terrific Farmers Market every Wednesday afternoon. It's not just produce, but has good meals to eat. The beach is right across the street. If you can bring scooters or bikes you will have a fun time! Pizza Port is nearby and it's a great casual...

We hooked up with CIBR spontaneously thru Hotel Tonight. While our original ressie did not have an ocean view, we were offered an upgrade for $50 and would up in the best room on the property. The friend desk staff were welcoming and helpful. We got snacks in the late afternoon and watched a great sunset. We had a question...

My family attempted to stay at this resort for a couple of nights for Thanksgiving weekend, and were very much looking forward to it, but unfortunately the rudeness and lack of either service or flexibility prevented us from even getting into a room before leaving. We arrived at 10:00 am to check in prior to a day at LEGOLAND, and...

The room is as would be expected for a hotel/resort. They charge $20/day for parking and Internet. The Internet is so slow when it actually works. Very limiting if you want to do anything beside email. No real response from management when notified of issue.

I booked our room through the Carlsbad Inn web site itself. The web site clearly shows a U shaped building. Rooms with views of the ocean. I upgraded to the Premier King to get on the third floor. When we got to our room, found out we have a view of the front parking lot and street. I thought it...

Hi Ken. We're truly sorry to hear about your experience. You are correct, not all units have ocean views. There's an aerial photo in the photo gallery on our website that shows our full resort. However, we apologize if you felt misled. We would very much like to speak with you further about your stay and ask that you reach...

Carlsbad is a great little town and this is a superb place to stay. Great views of the sea, walking distance from everything you need. The Daily News is the must go to place for breakfast and is almost on site
