Impeccably maintained property. Great location. Great staff. I travel a lot for work, and tend to hit the 'grumpy button' rather quickly when confronted with a disappointing hotel situation. No grumpiness on this stay. We loved the room/suite, hotel grounds, pool area, and fire pits, plus the fantastic palm tree setting. We also appreciated the friendlessness and helpfulness of the...

My son and I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights since Lego land hotel was sold out. I was pleasantly surprised and would definitely stay here again. Everyone was very nice, the rooms were clean and the beach was just a small cross street away.

We had a fantastic stay here. My wife has very limited vision and the owner of the property, Barry, couldn't do enough to make her/ us comfortable. He very generously upgraded our room which was spacious and comfortable for our family of 3. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. The resort is themed on Hawaii and with its...

We stay here as often as possible. We only live 40 miles from Ocean Palms Beach Resort but take every opportunity we get to wake up at the beach. This is my favorite place to do that. I love the beach here too so it's a win win. Barry, Todd and the others​ couldn't be more friendly and welcoming. I...

Honestly I cannot say enough nice things about this place. The grounds are beautiful, there are so many nice social spaces including firepits, a pool and BBQ areas. The breakfast area and coffee station are a plus, as is the free ice! The rooms are nice sizes, comfortable beds and the bathroom was better renovated than most of the places...

After check in there were a couple of small problems but Todd ( the night clerk) took excellent care of us and fixed everything perfectly. The general manager even made sure we were happy and taken care of. The room was very nice and not just the room but entire resort was clean. It was just across the street to...

Even if your stay is for one night this place has everything what you need within a few steps. Our room was on the first floor on street level and as soon as we walked into the patio you can already see the beach across the street.

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
