I left a rave review in September 2015 after a wonderful stay and stayed again in August 2016. It was just as great as the year before and the decades prior to that! This year we stayed in a bit larger room that was every bit as beautiful as the Traveler Suite of the year before. I wish my kitchen... More

Beautiful rooms, beautiful property , close to ocean and many restaurants. I hope the rooms and property can be maintained, because we would love to come back and have the same experience. The young guy that checked us in was super friendly and helpful!

We found this resort online, and I'm so glad we did. We took my daughter here for her 16th birthday and the resort was perfect. The attention to detail is great. The owners did a beautiful job remodeling the place and the decor and floor plans were very nice! The landscaping is beautiful. The girls spent the afternoon across the... More

Location can't be beat. I was solo on this trip but I wouldn't hesitate to being my boys back with me. LOVE that they have all the beach gear to borrow. Fantastic, Kitchen areas are a great way to save a little money but the village is so close you can go out all you want.

Staff is great, clean rooms, beautiful surroundings, places to walk to, the beach! Perfect. We have been staying there for over 20 each Sumner. Our children grew up going there, now they bring their children and we gather as a family. The staff works with us and is very tolerant of children.

We loved the beach across the street and the free beach rentals. We got chairs, umbrellas, towels sand toys for the kids and headed down to the beach and played until the sun got too hot. Then we would come up and cook a meal with the little kitchen, which had the basics, pots, pans, spatula, plates, etc Our family... More

We have been going to this hotel since 2000, this is a super place and I would never consider another in the area. The staff has always been wonderful and you feel as though you are in Hawaii with the tropical landscaping and room designs.

This tiny hotel is beautifully located! There are some rooms with ocean views, but the others are just steps away from the beach. The staff is the friendliest I have ever encountered! The front-desk people to the housekeepers are super friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. There was everything we needed in the room and extras available downstairs next to the front... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For generations, families visiting San Diego's North County for fun and relaxation on America's greatest beaches have enjoyed staying at the Ocean Palms. Our casual Carlsbad resort is ideally located along the coast in Carlsbad Village, home to one of Southern California's best collections of shops and restaurants. The Ocean Palms offers a wide choice of Carlsbad accommodations. From comfortable budget rooms to luxury suites, 1, 2 and 3 Bedrooms, some with ocean views, every room offers a fully equipped kitchen. We have the unique ability to provide you with the exact sleeping arrangements you need. Whether it's adjoining rooms or a suite, we can get you the space you need at a rate you'll love. Enjoy a continental breakfast, with fresh fruit, fresh-baked cookies, Danishes, and fresh-brewed coffee. Enjoy the laid back atmosphere and the lush landscaping. We're pet friendly, there's free WiFi, a heated pool and Jacuzzi. We love families who can't get enough of the beach, so we provide free beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and even free surfboards. The beach is right across the street, and the charming Village of Carlsbad is just a block away. Visiting Legoland? We're only a 10 minute drive. We're also just three blocks from the Coaster railroad station, so you can ride the train and take in all the attractions in San Diego, from a Padres Game at Petco Park to a tour of the historic aircraft carrier U.S.S. Midway. Here in North County San Diego, explore wineries and microbreweries. Welcome to your beachside home away from home. Come to the Ocean Palms, where cool Pacific breezes sweep across the enchanting Village of Carlsbad. There is no better place for families to capture the magic of Southern California. ... more   less
