Room Tip: Downstairs units are a little noisy from upstairs units foot traffic. Only a minor irritant and onl...

The location was great, right across the street from the beach. We checked out bikes, beach toys, games for free and thoroughly enjoyed the sauna, spa and pool. Staff was friendly, as were guests, and the beds in our 2 BR condo were plush. Loved the free wifi and free WSJ newspapers too. Fun vacation!

Great spot with so much in walking distance. Everyone on property was super responsive and welcome to help when asked. Carlsbad and the property was a treat! Everything is close by, great Mexican food, wine shop and the property is very easy to walk to and from the beach.

We have been timeshare owners for over 20 years and this was our absolute best exchange holiday ever. The location in Carlsbad offers ocean views, access to good restaurants within easy walking distance, coaster train service to San Diego and a friendly village vibe. The Inn staff could not have been more helpful and the rooms and common areas were second to none. Happy hour on two of our days featured live acoustic and electric guitar acts in the courtyard, no charge.
This resort is Gold Crown rated and absolutely deserves it. We cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: Be sure to request an ocean view where available or a view of the courtyard.

The Carlsbad Inn is tops. The location is great. The accommodation itself is excellent- clean rooms and comfy beds. The staff was amazing. The food and fun were top of the line and the activities dept was helpful (loved that activities gal with the wide shoulders! Kelly? She was a hoot!!).

I loved my stay here.

We stayed at the Carlsbad Inn for our 3rd year in a row. We continue to love the hotel, the location, the rooms, and the grounds.
However, the hotel has 2 new additions that I think the hotel would be better without.
We were asked to wear plastic bracelets during our entire stay. The flimsy kinds they give out at carnivals. Asking guests at a nice resort to wear these seems just silly. There has to be a better way to keep track of who is supposed to be using the resort facilities.
Also, there is a security guard on staff who spends too much time speaking to guests - he makes the place feel more like a detention center than a hotel. He seems very nice, but is just over-zealous. I've never been to a hotel where the security is that visible and interactive with guests. Whenever he was around (which was often) my family felt ill-at-ease and my kids were afraid of him. We would re-consider staying at the hotel exclusively because of his behavior.

Hi 007MBG,
We're thrilled that Carlsbad Inn is able to welcome you back for a wonderful vacation for the third year in a row. We're sorry for any inconveniences our new implementation of bracelets may have caused you and your family. This program is essential in our efforts to keep non-guests from coming on the resort property and helps to ensure the saftey of all of our guests. We appreciate your feedback regarding our security as well and will pass along your concerns to our security manager. We hope to welcome you all back to our resort again for a fourth stay soon!

What a great stay we had, thank you to the staff and the manager Roxi Wells for all you did to make our stay great! Really enjoyed the great restaurants all walking distance from the hotel. Also great to see lots of couple and families enjoying time together in one place. We will be back soon and hope to start staying a couple of times a year.

Thanks again to the great staff....
