Decided to try this property on our second trip to Carlsbad. I requested a premium hotel room and did get an ocean view room on the third level. However, we did not have balcony - only a small window. The photos on the website make it look like almost every room had a balcony but those are the condo buildings... More

Got a great rate for a hotel resort that was on our vacation "BUCKET LIST." The room was a time share rental for one night and was fantastic. Great location, great room and great staff. The resort was well maintained and spotless, but was showing it's age in places the public does not notice. The parking elevator hallway needs painting,... More

What a great vacation I had in Carlsbad staying at the resort. So many things are within walking distance we rarely even used our car. All was great until a day after we checked out, I realized we were missing a few things. Not knowing if these were even left at the hotel, I was not optimistic. Since I was... More

Rooms were nice, the only thing I would do differently is make sure that we get a room that has better accessible tub. We came here with my mother-in-law (could never mention her age here) and the tub in her room I don't think was safe for her. So I will ask about that in the future. The rest of... More

Carlsbad Inn has been a favorite place to visit several times each year since it opened. Start with friendly accommodating staff followed by a beautiful green and floral areas. Combine this with beach across the street and everything you can eat or shop for in walking distance with an attractive downtown.

Couldn't have picked a better vacation spot in Carlsbad for our 6 day vacation. The staff was super helpful and friendly. We used many of their amenities from beach chairs and bikes, to the hot tub, pool and firepits. The beds are super comfortable with lots of pillows, which is a nice plus. Walking distance to the train, restaurants and... More

You can't go wrong in San Diego! You'll pay more for hotels in the summer before school starts (middle of August in California), but it's worth it. This place is a great stop--very close to Legoland. As a matter of fact, they have a shuttle to the park, which saves you ~$25 parking--maybe you can buy a stranger a beer... More
