Great place. Right across the street from the beach, great pool, well maintained. Our kids loved the game room and ping pong table, fireplace area outside and of course, the pool and hot tub (which were very clean and well-maintained). We were under the impression that breakfast was included in our stay but it was not - ask for breakfast... More

We were offered a three night stay through Wyndham resorts. The Hilton Garden Inn was across the road from a ocean view but to access the beach you need to go about a half mile down the road. The room was very nice with two queen beds. The only drawback was the noise from the room next door, we could... More

Close to the ocean/beach, legoland, costco and everything you need in Carlsbad. The hotel is clean and family friendly. The pool/spa is clean and well maintained. We also like the food served at the hotel. The steak is well done and worth the money.

Stayed here before and found the hotel to be OK, if not a little overpriced. My last visit is just that, LAST. Hotel cleanliness has nose dived. Bed is rock hard.

Can't beat the location, a block from the beach and close to multiple amenities; the free five-mile radius shuttle could get you around without needing a rental car if you had a limited agenda. Front desk customer service was excellent. Staff knew local restaurants for recommendations, gave good directions and did their best to accommodate special requests. Food in-house is... More
