We booked this through Trip Advisor, it was very easy and quick. We have been to Carlsbad before and enjoy the town so we were happy to find this little gem of a place. As I told the receptionist at check out the only thing we could find that we could suggest as a small improvement was Potholders :) The...

We have been coming to the Ocean Palms for over 25 years and every year it just gets better and better. Steps away from the ocean, dining, and boutique shopping it's really a one stop shop, we park our car for the whole week and we don't have to drive anywhere! Their staff is wonderful and they let us check...

Bright rooms, beautiful grounds, fire pits, BBQs, kitchens with real fridge and freezer, and the beach right across the street already make this a great place to stay. But the staff--especially Biraj!--is helpful, kind and professional, and they make this hotel Excellent!

The rooms are clean and colorful. It is a bonus to have the kitchen in the room. The grounds are beautiful and steps from the ocean beach. There is a great outside area with fire pits and a nice pool. A very tropical feel. The service is friendly and helpful. We enjoy staying here every time we visit the area.

In the heart of Carlsbad. We walked to dinner one night and heated up leftovers in the kitchen the next! Nicely appointed rooms with comfortable beds and a nice big shower. We were on the ground floor and parked our bikes right outside. Stored our surfboard inside. Across the street from the beach. Very friendly staff. Would stay again.

The beach is across a narrow street. There are steps that lead down to the beach area. The stepped walkway is steep. If you have problems, there is an inclined walkway to the beach a couple of blocks down. Shopping and restaurants and entertainment are in easy walking distance. The rooms have a full kitchen. They offer bagels, fruit, juices...

We had an amazing time. Room was clean. Ate nearly every meal in the beautiful courtyard at the tables. Spent our evenings enjoying the fire pits. Staff was very pleasant and very helpful. Can't wait to return for another visit. The only place we choose to stay in Carlsbad.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For generations, families visiting San Diego's North County for fun and relaxation on America's greatest beaches have enjoyed staying at the Ocean Palms. Our casual Carlsbad resort is ideally located along the coast in Carlsbad Village, home to one of Southern California's best collections of shops and restaurants. The Ocean Palms offers a wide choice of Carlsbad accommodations. From comfortable budget rooms to luxury suites, 1, 2 and 3 Bedrooms, some with ocean views, every room offers a fully equipped kitchen. We have the unique ability to provide you with the exact sleeping arrangements you need. Whether it's adjoining rooms or a suite, we can get you the space you need at a rate you'll love. Enjoy a continental breakfast, with fresh fruit, fresh-baked cookies, Danishes, and fresh-brewed coffee. Enjoy the laid back atmosphere and the lush landscaping. We're pet friendly, there's free WiFi, a heated pool and Jacuzzi. We love families who can't get enough of the beach, so we provide free beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and even free surfboards. The beach is right across the street, and the charming Village of Carlsbad is just a block away. Visiting Legoland? We're only a 10 minute drive. We're also just three blocks from the Coaster railroad station, so you can ride the train and take in all the attractions in San Diego, from a Padres Game at Petco Park to a tour of the historic aircraft carrier U.S.S. Midway. Here in North County San Diego, explore wineries and microbreweries. Welcome to your beachside home away from home. Come to the Ocean Palms, where cool Pacific breezes sweep across the enchanting Village of Carlsbad. There is no better place for families to capture the magic of Southern California. ... more   less
