“Possible Relocation”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Could not have been more perfect. My daughter was interviewing for a position that would require her to relocate. It could not have been better located for just about everything include her interview! The staff at all levels were very helpful and accommodating. Very friendly community.

PS. She does the job!

Room Tip: Our room backed up to the pool and was 1st floor, it was quiet in spite of that. I have a feeling m...

great rooms, best location for playing on the beach in Carlsbad, just cross the street and you are there. Not impressed with the dining, pretty expensive for mediocre breakfast buffet. WIFI included in the rooms. Overall a very nice hotel

Really enjoyed my stay here. Every staff person I met was friendly and professional. As a Hilton Diamond member I expect a certain level of service, and this hotel met all of my expectations. I enjoyed my walks on the cliffs across from the hotel, and even hiked down to the beach. It's not a hike for everyone, but the beach below the hotel only has a few people on it. However, there is a great beach a short distance to the south on 101 and a little longer to the north on 101. Carlsbad is a nice village. The town of Encinitas, a few miles to the south on the PCH is a bit more trendy (didn't used to be!) if you skew younger. The Union Bar and Grill and the Biergarden in Encinitas are fun places to go. But be warned, Almost all of the places in Encinitas turn into Dance clubs after 11 PM.

I'd certainly stay here again. I struggled to give this a 5 star rating, only because I've stayed at the Hilton just south of here, which is truly a 5 star property. But also way more expensive. However, I decided that the staff and the nice rooms and location deserved the 5.

Room Tip: I don't recommend the rooms in the back - they face the train tracks which can't be more tha...

This is a nice hotel that is resonably priced for its location. Located across the PCH from the beach, however you will need to walk approx. 1/4 to 1/2 a mile in either direction to have safe access to the beach since the hotel sits on a high bluff. Quick drivable distance to Legoland, dinning and shopping. Kids had fun in the pool as well.

The friendliest hotel staff you will ever find. The rooms and other amenities this hotel has to offer are excellent! The ocean view and sunsets will keep you coming back to this hotel. Shuttle service to downtown Carlsbad and back is great. There are many good and reasonably priced restaurants located nearby. Carlsbad Outlet Mall is also close by. The beach is also conveniently accessible! I always enjoy staying at this Hilton property.

We usually always stay here when we are in the area, which is 3-6 times a year. We love being near the ocean; early morning walk is just across the road. The staff is always friendly staff, the rooms are clean, and the "fresh out of the oven" cookies can't be beat!

It's what you'd expect from a Hilton Garden Inn. It's clean and maintained.
The staff were very friendly.
Good location, right across from the beach, though it is a ways from town (Carlsbad).
There is a parking fee (and I'm not sure I understand why).
