Travelers' Choice
A true beachfront hotel. Our family-owned, independent boutique has been a part of Carlsbad Village since the 1960s. Yet still to this day we remain the only beachfront hotel in Carlsbad. Our rooms average 600 square feet and feature balconies with panoramic ocean views while our privileged location offers direct access to the our own private beach. Our beach valets will even setup umbrellas, beach chairs, towels, and beach toys to make your experience extra special. Walk to 70+ restaurants and entertainment venues within the charming Carlsbad Village, or lose yourself in flip flops, sand and the sight of dolphins playing in the ocean. Legoland and fabulous shopping are five minutes away while the famous sights of San Diego are a quick 30 minute drive south.

We had a nice and relaxing Christmas here. The beach is just steps away. Listening to the waves while reading a book was so relaxing. We will be coming back! Restaurants and shops are mostly walking distance.

Hotel's Favorite
This is our favorite place to stay in San Diego. You can literally walk out of your room and onto the most beautiful beach, which makes it so convenient — we don't miss the sand in our car driving to and from another beach. It's also nice to have the pool and hot tub there in case the ocean is too cold or rough to swim in and you have kids with lots of energy. The rooms here are always immaculate and comfortable, and it's lovely to fall asleep to the sound of the waves. The staff is so friendly and accommodating — they'll go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. Our kids love the free breakfast that, lately at least, gets delivered directly to our room and usually includes baked goods of some sort. The hotel is also within walking distance to a bevy of shops and restaurants (we recommend Jay's Gourmet Pizza and Seafood!).

Nicest beachfront hotel in Carlsbad.... Just open your window, and enjoy fresh ocean air, a premium view of waves crashing on the sand, dolphins swimming by, and a prize-winning sunset. Hotel staff are friendly, welcoming and unpretentious. The property is within a short walking distance to fun restaurants and shops. The lovely continental breakfast delivered to the room is a pleasant bonus. One of my favorite spots on the California coast.

Due to family residing in Carlsbad we travel there once or twice a year. We like this hotel for its smaller size, friendly staff, and bigger rooms. We love being right on the beach and glorious views.

The best thing about this hotel is that it's oceanside. Nice sunset view, crashing waves, nice beach. Second best thing is the swimming pool, though small, was warm enough. Hot tub was nice until 2nd night when water was foamy, which didn't make me want to go in. $40 per rollaway cot per night is highway robbery. It doesn't cost the hotel any effort to make it less expensive so that it'd be more family friendly. The room was not as nice/high end as the website photos made it look, so don't expect much. With all the fees added up, it came out to over $1000 for 2 nights for 2 adults/2 kids. If I had known, I would have chosen an actual high-end hotel that would have included 2 queen beds.
