All of the staff was very friendly and accomadating, there was only one problem, the phones were down and my daughter couldn't get a hold of me. It was also nice to have a smoking area to go to even though I would prefer my room.

Everything was as we hoped: clean, efficient, available, and convenient. There were no significant negatives, only a positive experience. We would recommend this facility to anyone expecting a great experience in Carlsbad.

Great location and great customer services. We enjoyed the outdoor movie for the kids and the cleanliness of the heated pool. It was great getaway. Walking across the street to the beach was a plus. I would definitely recommend this spot.

4th time back! Always a great stay. Close to the beach, nice pool & jacuzzi, clean fresh room & welcoming staff. Plan on returning great place to have friends meet up for dinner. Enjoyed live music last time over the weekend stay with live music. A real gem at an affordable price!

Nothing unexpected nor exemplary. Location was ideal for gaining easy access to legoland and Carlsbad area. The hotel itself was no worth the $300 a night based on it being. Hilton Garden Inn. I would have expected better value.

I've stayed at many HGIs around the country, this one has the most dated finishes and case goods of them all. The good: nice location with views of the beach; parking availability is pretty good ($12/day); we called for maintenance twice (slow draining lavatory and A/C would not cool), they responded quickly and the problems were taken care of; plenty...

The room was average. Seemed a bit dark and worn. The breakfast was good if you are Hilton Honors and have breakfast coupons. Not sure I would pay $17 for it. I love that there were a bike/running path right across the street - along with beach. Also, was surprised that parking was $12 per night when I have stayed... More

The room was fine. Not the greatest but good enough. I chose this hotel based on location to Legoland and breakfast option since I have two kids. Here are my thoughts: Location: Great location and easy to get to the freeway, Legoland, etc. Hotel: Overall the hotel is okay. I noticed that all the windows were left open all day/night... More

Great location. Good food. Definitely stay away when there are soccer tournaments in town. The hotel is FILLED with screaming kids, who leave trash everywhere. They also take over the swimming pool, so that no other guests feel comfortable enough to enjoy a relaxing swim. The staff however, is very friendly.

I called early in the week to confirm two queen size beds. When I arrived I was given a king size bed. Not good for a family of three. The hotel was nice enough to give us a handicap room on the first floor by the gate. The room was very noisy. But they did switch us. Then the housekeeping... More
