This is not a hotel for people who like large, corporate feeling hotels that are full of Comic Book Conventions and road warriors. This is an intimate, quirky hotel with HUGE, luxurious oceanfront rooms. My room was on the sand and was as nice as any Westin or W hotel, except it was much bigger and might have been a suite at one time. It was clean, new, had a 42" plasma, a sofa, two club chairs, a very comfortable king sized bed, a big shower, a wet bar, a refrigerator, a desk, free WiFi, a separate toilet room (loved that) and a deep balcony with a love seat and two chairs overlooking the placid Carlsbad sea. It really has everything I needed for a two day stay to visit family over the holidays.
One caveat: this place is not homogenized or uniform like a chain hotel. There are some rooms that can't be reached by an elevator, and the place feels like ocean-front cool rather than slick chic. It's really an ocean front B&B married to the luxury of a 4 star hotel and it's got location, location, location! I travel often and have stayed in every major chain hotel, from 5 star to 2 star. There are great hotels, but this one is a special hotel. I'm now a big fan and will return as often as I can! I can't wait to see what other improvements they make.
