This property exceeded my expectations. The room was impeccably cleaned and the attention to detail was awesome. From the kitchenware (flatware, dishware, cooking) to the most comfortable pillows EVER. Steps away from the beach literally, there were beach chairs in the closet! what ?! The location was just perfect, walking distance to downtown Carlsbad, went to the farmers market, dinner... More

We love this resort! It is walking distance to many great restaurants, shops, and a terrific Farmers Market every Wednesday afternoon. It's not just produce, but has good meals to eat. The beach is right across the street. If you can bring scooters or bikes you will have a fun time! Pizza Port is nearby and it's a great casual... More

We hooked up with CIBR spontaneously thru Hotel Tonight. While our original ressie did not have an ocean view, we were offered an upgrade for $50 and would up in the best room on the property. The friend desk staff were welcoming and helpful. We got snacks in the late afternoon and watched a great sunset. We had a question... More

My family attempted to stay at this resort for a couple of nights for Thanksgiving weekend, and were very much looking forward to it, but unfortunately the rudeness and lack of either service or flexibility prevented us from even getting into a room before leaving. We arrived at 10:00 am to check in prior to a day at LEGOLAND, and... More

The room is as would be expected for a hotel/resort. They charge $20/day for parking and Internet. The Internet is so slow when it actually works. Very limiting if you want to do anything beside email. No real response from management when notified of issue.

I booked our room through the Carlsbad Inn web site itself. The web site clearly shows a U shaped building. Rooms with views of the ocean. I upgraded to the Premier King to get on the third floor. When we got to our room, found out we have a view of the front parking lot and street. I thought it... More

Hi Ken. We're truly sorry to hear about your experience. You are correct, not all units have ocean views. There's an aerial photo in the photo gallery on our website that shows our full resort.

The rooms were great I was in a double queen room, it was very clean and nice. The bathroom was very tidy, quite spacious also there was a little patio with seats... More

Carlsbad is a great little town and this is a superb place to stay. Great views of the sea, walking distance from everything you need. The Daily News is the must go to place for breakfast and is almost on site

At the front door you are in the middle of town, pass through the doors and you are in a beach resort steps away from an amazing beach. I loved the fact there were free bikes to use and ocean toys. The room is clean and well decorated. We had fun there.

3 days for a business retreat. Comfortable, clean rooms, nice meeting room and accommodating staff. One block from the beach, high enough for gorgeous views, close enough for easy beach access. Enjoyed, walks and dips in the ocean, hot tub and pool after at the hotel. Happy hour with live music Friday and Saturday. All leading to a productive meeting.
