“A Gem In the Heart of Carlsbad CA”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This 25+ year old hotel/vacation rental/timeshare is wonderfully maintained and has an excellent well trained and friendly staff. The location is terrific, right on the beach with many surfers and beach accessories available for checkout, lots of good restaurants within walking distance, an underground parking garage and lots of other amenities. You can walk a few blocks to the Amtrack California Coaster Station for a quick train trip to Delmar, San Diego or LA. Tours are also available from the site.

Nice place by the beach, but if you want quite and away from kids not the place to be. They were making so much noise in the room above us that it was hard to get to sleep. The floors must be very thin. It is also a time share place.
It is hard to get a place to sit when they have something special going on. All the chairs are saved early in the day so you are out of luck to find one. They just put towels down and disappear until the shows start or movies just about anything.

I enjoyed my stay here. The town is cute to go explore restaurants. My room had a living room and a bedroom an was rather spacious. The pool area is nice and so is the hot tub. The rooms were clean and the staff were very friendly. There was also plenty of parking.

We have stayed here several times, and enjoyed it. Its close to everything, restaurants, shopping and the beach. The property is very clean and well maintained. In season be prepared for lots of kids and young families. We like going after the kids are in school. Much more relaxing.

The Carlsbad Inn is such a wonderful place to stay. It is close to the beach, restaurants, and activities. You feel safe walking the streets at night. We walked on the beach every day. The property is very well maintained, the staff friendly and efficient and the grounds are beautiful. Their underground parking accommodated our truck and we had no problem finding parking spaces. The rooms are clean, decorated just right, with fluffy towels and very comfortable bed. I highly recommend the Carlsbad Inn.

Beautiful property, excellent staff, just steps away from the ocean, and the most wonderful beds! I loved that we could park the car and walk everywhere. Great places to eat-close by. I will definitely come back.

after our bad experience with the neighboring hotel (see my other review). The Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort bent over backwards to accommodate us. We have to move twice but at least we were able to have a room. This is a beautiful property. Lots of kids activities like movie night on the grassy area, bingo, crafts, and a large game room. There are complimentary bike and beach rentals (chairs umbrellas, sand toys). Underground parking, and a separate staircase with direct access to the beach. Don't ask me how they keep this hotel so clean and free of sand. We enjoyed our stay and we will return.

Room Tip: Even our room which was technically next to the road was really nicely landscaped with a balcony and...
