This is a lovely hidden gem! The suites were so tastefully updated and decorated! We were so comfortable. The grounds were so pretty to look at too. The staff so friendly and the room staff did above and beyond to keep the room spotless everyday. We will MOST DEFINITELY be back as our daughter just moved to California and we are going to visit often. Our new place to visit! The location perfect too on a quiet street...steps to the gorgeous Carlsbad Beach...So glad we found this place and stayed here for a wonderful week!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are perfect as they are all updated and stylish! They were doing construction on another section so I am sure they will be lovely too!

We had a wonderful week in Carlsbad during our nearly four month USA holiday in October/November 2013. As we arrived we directly got an upgrade to a very nice appartement because my girlfriend was...and still is pregnant. This was really a great offer! The whole Resort was very tidy and in a really good condition. Unfortunately the whirlpool was in repair, but this was the only minus of our stay in the resort. Expecially the nearness to the ocean was really brilliant and I never saw so much pelicans in my life as in Carlsbad. All in all it was really a good time in Ocean Palms Beach Resort for us. Cheers, Jessi & Holger (Hamburg, Germany)

From check in to check out...this place is great!! I have stayed here several times, and encourage any travelers to do the same, you can't beat it! Only steps from the beach, across a small 1 lane beach street, you can find yourself standing ankle high in SoCal sand watching waves crash on an early evening sunset walk along the ocean. You can even hear the waves crashing from your open window at night. "Steps to good restaurants, blocks from bike rentals and the Coaster train that takes you in and out of the city and very nice grounds to relax in." (taken from another post because it is VERY true!) They are *pet friendly* which is very important to those with pets! There are even a couple of very friendly cats that live there that give the traveling animal lovers their fix of critters. I was actually born in Carlsbad, my family lives in Carlsbad and I stay at OPBR when I visit! The rooms are plush and very inviting and warm with complete kitchenettes. The last one I stayed in was rather small, it was the smallest room, but it was comfortable for my trip, 1 bd (queen) 3/4 bath (shower) kitchenette, but I think it would be great for a couple wanting to get away. Heated pool and hot tub, private parking, 24hr lobby and gift shop...Carlsbad at its finest!! Recommended to everyone who visits! I really do love staying here and will continue to do so!!

Great place, recently renovated and especially the location in Carlsbad, CA. You can walk everywhere from restaurants, shops and Coaster train to the beach and parks. If you travel with a well behaved pet, Ocean Palms is very welcoming to you and your pet. Our Lab loved it there!

The kitchens are complete, even the little Traveler room had a good mini kitchen. We stayed in two different rooms because at the end of our stay we decided to extend and had to move to a different room. The first room, Luxury suite was great and had no noise issues. The second room, the Traveler, you could hear a simple normal telephone conversation in the the next room through the wall. Unfortunately, they could hear our TV and called in a complaint. We travel a lot and never had that happen. We felt really bad and basically never turned on the TV again and spoke in whisper in the room the remainder of our stay.

The staff is very friendly and helpful and we would definitely go back but not Cooke the Traveler room option. The pet fee per day was $25 but the location to great walking and short drive down coast highway to dog beach was worth it!

Room Tip: Traveler rooms were not very sound proof. All other rooms seemed great. Try to get ocean view if possible, but the grounds and amenities are very nice.
