While not actually on the beach (it's across the highway), this hotel is mediocre at best. We used points (44,000) and it was WAY overpriced and very much an underwhelming property. It desperately needs a makeover and some lipsrick if it wants to command a high level of points or rates. The added insult is the $14.00 per night to...

This Hilton is first class, across the street from the beach. They have a restaurant and bar in the lobby area and several conference rooms for business. The room was spacious with a microwave, refrigerator and coffee. The pool is immaculate, but about 3 1/2 feet deep and the jacuzzi was kept very hot. Views of the ocean throughout the...

The "partial ocean view" was disappointing. There were several problems with the bathroom plumbing but it was still functional. The internet did not work properly. The front desk was left unattended frequently. This was our first stay at a Hilton Garden Inn & perhaps the last.

Just perfect to take an afternoon jogging along the coastal hwy. Hotel staff are so friendly that makes your stay very good. Food at the restaurant has a high quality. Easy way to get in and out from Freeway 5. Near to Carlsbad Historic district.

The price paid for a large room so near the beach really is reasonable. This hotel is a good value. The staff is very friendly, both at the front desk and the lounge. This hotel is showing its age and wear and tear. The bathroom fixtures, fading and chipped furniture, remind the guest it's time to renovate this property. Rooms...

We stayed here last week for spring break along with our kids (10 and 8). The staff were great and professional.

I tend not to like HGI in as a brand and usually stay at a different hotel when I'm in Carlsbad. However, this one won me over. The Pros- Literally right across the street from the pacific ocean. You get the whole SoCal experience- surfers, sunsets, etc. The staff. Very friendly and kind. Seemed genuinely interested. The Hilton Honors benefits...

Paul at the front desk was very polite and accommodating. The breakfast was a good spread and tasty. We didn't get to spend much time at the hotel we were visiting family and on our way out of town. The location is nice, away from noise.

Awesome location! We enjoyed our stay very much! A few things stand out that should be noted. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised, because the website doesn't offer much in the way of adequate photos of the rooms, or even a glimps of the lovely fireplace and cozy living room like area in the lobby area! Really nice! Beautiful pool...
