We stay regularly and have never had anything but a good experience. The manager Prudence and all the staff are the most helpful, genuine and friendly I have experienced in any hotel. Highly recommend.

I could only recommend your staying at Beach View Lodge, the hotel is clean and tidy and Angelica and Prudence (Hotel managers) together with the staff embrace you in a warm atmosphere, the location by the sea is unbeatable with the breakfast deck with ocean view

This is an older property that is well-maintained. Vintage, not dated. The amenities are modest, but are commensurate with the lodging category. Staff is efficient and engaging. The Guest Lounge is a very nice touch, serving as a free-breakfast venue and a comfortable meeting place at other times throughout the day. The adjacent sun deck is perfect for taking in...

We stayed here with friends who come regularly to visit their son at the Army & Navy Academy. We had a warm welcome from the manager and the room was large and very comfortable with a fireplace for colder evenings. Breakfast was excellent. The location is brilliant, just yards from the beach and a short walk to Carlsbad Village.

Be careful to really look at the pictures touted on the hotel website. I thought for the price I paid I was getting something updated, plush and on (near) the beach.

Well maintained older motel across the street from ocean and a really nice long boardwalk. Close to Carlsbad Village Drive, restaurants and shops. Comfortable clean rooms. Larger than most - the King Partial ocean view was 300+ sq feet. View was of Pine Street with ocean blocked by a tree so really the choice is between having a balcony or...
