Really nothing to complain about. The Disney package is a great deal and you can purchase extra tix if you need more. The staff couldn't be more accommodating - learning your name super quickly and really going above and beyond to welcome you. The room is clean and modern. No skeevy hotel vibe about it - just fresh tight sheets...

I just love staying at the Hilton Garden Inn. I really love the staff, so friendly and helpful. We used their transportation van to get around and loved not having to hassle with parking. The Hotel is clean and the grounds are beautiful. Don't like paying 20.00 per day for parking however. It didn't used to be that way. Will...

Had a great stay; nice rooms, nice view and breeze from ocean; very well kept facility. Chef at breakfast remembered how I like my omelette every day. I wanted to add days to my stay but unfortunately they were full. I will definitely go back!

Nice hotel with a great view and the beach was just across the road. The rooms & grounds were nice and the staff was friendly. I would recommend this hotel but plan on eating somewhere else; food was ok but service was non-existent.

We stayed two nights around a wedding and wanted to be close to Carlsbad and Encinitas, but also close to the beach. This hotel fit the bill nicely. It's across the street from Carlsbad State Beach, although up on the bluffs so you do have to walk abit to get to the water. That was fine with us, as we...

For me the real show stopper was having the Pacific Ocean right across the road. Very friendly hotel staff, good clean environment. Plenty of choice at breakfast and dinner. Only downer was the hotel is a bit isolated if you want to walk into town for a change of scenery and a beer. I would suggest this hotel is perfect...

We had a wonderful time at this hotel, the staff was very helpful. The room was clean and the view is great. The only problem is that the beach in front of the hotel is not a very good beach. Overall, very good stay.

Love the staff, especially Cherie and Manny . Hotel is getting older and older, but prices stay competetive with Hilton that is 3 years old down the street. My room smelled, as did my pillows. I have stayed here 13 years straight and the hotel needs some money invested by the owners!! Once again the staff is incredible and is...

Great service from the staff. They have great amenities for all to enjoy. Their business center has all tools like you were at home to use while staying. The dining is in house with good food all day long. The bar is a social place whether for business or pleasure. The beach is 2 minutes away walking and beautiful to...

Pros: great location, food is pretty good, staff is friendly, shuttle drivers are good guys, but they take heat from guest about how long the wait was. Cons: never believe the time they give you for the free shuttle, add an hour. Pool could be cleaner, Breakfast is pricey, for the price of a room it should be complimentary.
