“Consistant beauty, comfort, and hospitality!”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

We are always pleasently surprised at how the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort continues to improve with each visit. The hotel is bright with views straight out to the ocean. We were warmly greeted and given the keys to our rooms exactly how we requested them. One room had a sand shark character made from towels by housekeeping. The other had a cute elephant. I understand they learned this by themselves. The rooms are as cozy and comfortable as it gets. Sliding shutters open to a balcony. Each room also had an instant hot drink maker with individual servings of coffee and tea. We could spend all day just sitting or reading on the park like grounds. I love gardening so I have a great appreciation for the landscaping and floral displays all around the area. The entire complex is immaculate inside and out. All of the staff including the front desk, security, maintenance, and housekeeping are attentive and jump at the opportunity to assist you. We don't have children but the children there were having a great time in the kid's pool. Logistically, the Inn is the perfect location for exploring all that Carlsbad, LaJolla, and San Diego have to offer. Can't wait for our next visit.

Room Tip: Higher floors have good views and less foot traffic noise.

We live in such a beautiful area but feels like we don't stop to enjoy it so we headed here for a great weekend with the kiddos.

I immediately loved the feel of the "Beachy" lobby & the newly remodled rooms were spacious & clean. Pool was heated for the kids & we could watch them from one of the hot tubs. Complimentary bikes we used to ride the beach route to local restaurants. Didn't use the gym this time or sauna but looked nice. Oh & they had complimentary board games as well, we played as a family in our PJ's one morning.

A great time was had by all!

Room Tip: Higher Rooms seemed to be the newly remodled ones

from the time we walked into the lobby to the time we left the property, we were treated as vip guests. for example, we drove into the parking garage and an employee noticed us and promptly wheeled a baggage cart over to our vehicle to take care of our luggage. our entire stay was filled with surprises like this. had a great time beside the pool and at the workout room. great restaurants within walking distance. overall, the experience at the carlsbad inn could not have been more perfect.

You can't beat the location. Right at the ocean end of Carlsbad Village Drive. Easy walking to beach, town, dinner, shopping, etc. Beautiful grounds that are well kept. Small swimming pool, good hot tub, ocean a short one block walk.

Apartment rooms are renovated recently and very nice. Good view of ocean from most. Third floor is the best. Kitchen good enough to prepare a dinner if you don't want to go out every night.

Staff is very friendly and eager to help. They have activities all week long. Legoland not far. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance.

Incredibly courteous! Front desk greeted me with a smile. I know it sounds funny but there was a warm feeling. The front desk was ready to help in any way possible. Heaven knows I needed help a couple of times. The lobby extended into a much larger room that was very comfortable. The larger room was inviting as I saw many people sitting around talking to others, enjoying the view or using the computers. Another thing that I was impressed with was the staff I ran into here and there. Always a smile and a "hi"! The property itself is absolutely beautiful! Easy access to beach.

Room Tip: Ask, simply ask. That is what I did. What the staff worked out for me was wonderful. I could not...

We were attending a convention in San Diego but wanted to experience the nearby communities. The room was fantastic. Rooms were newly updated. Close to great seafood, breakfast right on the corner. We had a great time with other guests (that we didn't know) sitting around the fire at night. We enjoyed walking along the beaches, watching the surfers. listening to the band and driving down the coast.

We enjoyed the Temecula vineyards the next day. We downloaded 2 for 1 coupons from the Temecula Wine growers and enjoyed the flea market, eating freshly made sourdough bread and tasting several different types of wine. Would recommend. We are looking forward to our next trip to Carlsbad.

Spent 3 nearly sleepless nights at the hotel with wife and 2 kids.

Awful sleep every night and mattresses are old and lumpy. Noise comes in from
Hallways so bring ear plugs.

On a positive note, rooms were clean and good housekeeping.
