Let me start by saying that I was lead to believe this was a hotel that had some oceanfront rooms by reservation agents. I knew we were across the street from the beach but the room we received was a room with "a way off in the distance ocean view". You will not hear any crashing waves on your balcony...

This was my fourth visit. In the past the place was managed most likely independently, now the big corporate suits have settled in, and taken away the charm. They walk around somberly, and its just not the same. Most of the place is time shares, which is fine, and 2 floors of rooms for regular guest in the main building,...

My adult kids and my grandson and I stayed in a one bedroom condo that had a patio that faced the ocean and it was overwhelmingly peaceful.

It's hard to say exactly why we didn't like this place since it has a lot going for it. But we just really didn't like it at all. The first thing to know is that it is largely a timeshare property, and seems to attract a certain crowd. Like the guy carrying around a big plastic bag of Bud Light...

We had a wonderful experience at the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort. The rooms and facilities appealing and of high quality. The resort was very appealing with easy access to the beach. The staff were extremely helpful and willing to make modifications as requested. The resort is within walking distance of numerous eating establishments.

Got a good weekday rate from a travel site. Many rooms have ocean view, mine did not and was right on the noisy road. Told all view rooms were booked.

I purchased a one-bedroom condo for a one-night stay. I was very pleased with the entire experience. The very large living room/kitchen area was lovely, and the balcony view (# 336) with the partial ocean view, was just perfect; the room was in perfect condition, and the kitchen stocked with everything you could need. The grounds are well laid out,...

We've stayed at the Carlsbad Inn previously, and swore we would return as soon as we could. We returned on my wife's birthday, and had another amazing time.
