My girlfriend and I were looking for a hotel in Carlsbad CA to stay in for one night so we could enjoy a night out on the town bar hopping and then have a safe place to sleep for the night so as to avoid drinking and driving. All the hotels in the area were booked for the night and this hilton was the only hotel in the area that had availability. It is farther down coast from downtown Carlsbad and not within walking distance to any of the restaurants or bars there. We decided to take the room and we would just call a cab to go into town. The hotel staff were very friendly and the hotel had a shuttle that offered to drive us into town at no extra charge so we wouldn't have to use a cab. However the bar and bartender at the hotel were both very nice and we were enjoying ourselves there so much that we didn't even bother leaving that night. The rooms were very neat and clean, and the air conditioning was very powerful. Our room felt ice cold when we first arrived there. Overall the hotel was a perfect little getaway for us and I would recommend it to anyone else looking for a place to stay in the area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled along the sunny Pacific Coast in Northern San Diego and only 150 steps to the surf, Cape Rey is the adventurous choice for the California traveler who seeks something different and unique. With spectacular views of picturesque South Carlsbad beaches, the resort sits atop the crest of a series of gently rolling berms - a crest we like to call the Cape! At the Cape you are just minutes from LEGOLAND(R)California and the historic Del Mar Race Track, or a short coastal drive to SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo or Safari Park, famous regional wineries, and award-winning craft breweries. For the adventurous types we outfit you for local deep-sea fishing, sailboat cruises, horseback riding, paddle boarding, snorkeling, surfing lessons, and kayak explorations. Foodies enjoy dining on-property at Chandler's, where you'll find familiar favorites prepared with a twist. For connecting rejuvenation with mind, body and soul, we offer one of the top 5 Hotel Spas in the U.S. By Travel & Escape, the Ocean Crest Spa. And with an array of excursion locales and onsite amenities, there's always something to do, see or eat at the Cape. ... more less
