Great location and nice, clean hotel. The breakfast lounge was a pleasant surprise and we really appreciated the ability to rent free beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and boogie boards at the front desk to take across the street to the beach. Easy access to Legoland. Would definitely stay here again.

If you are a family I absolutely recommend it. Great little pool and right across from the beach. It was perfect. The people there are the best, so friendly and helpful! They allow you to check out beach gear (umbrella, chairs, kids toys). Only thing, I wished there was a convenience store with basics. We ran out of water the... More

We picked this hotel because of its proximity to the beach (literally right across the street). Everything was awesome - location, service, accommodations. The staff was friendly and the rooms clean. Breakfast had a great selection and variety of foods. Highly recommend this hotel!

I must give acknowledgement to Prudence at the front desk. She was friendly, courteous, and sensitive to our every need. She recognized our Anniversary and made dinner reservations for us. Our stay was great, weather was perfect. Kudos to Beach View Lodge!

This hotel is literally right across the street from the Ocean. Military friendly with reduced rates and the grounds and rooms are immaculate. The breakfast gets 5 stars for variety, freshness, and location overlooking the Ocean. We stayed 5 nights and did not want to leave.

I would like to see Hard boiled eggs at breakfast and Kleenex in the rooms. My nose tends to run when I'm at the beach and I had to us toliet paper to blow my nose. I liked the coziness of the smaller facility.

Fantastic as always. The staff is the best and the location is second to none. Nice clean rooms with great beds! You can walk to the village or right across to the beach and the walk along the boardwalk is always my personal favorite.

Could not have asked for a better location. Across the street from the beach. We watched dolphins swim by heading South while having breakfast on the sun porch. Professional staff who all kept the hotel running smoothly. Highly recommend for your stay in Carlsbad!
