The location of this hotel was second to none - directly across the street from Carlsbad State Beach. The viewing balcony was perfect for watching sunsets at the end of the day and the breakfast area has a fantastic view for whale watching. It was a nice surprise that they offered beach chairs. Many restaurants within walking distance. Only criticisms are that there is a fee for the parking but you have the option to park on the street, the breakfast serving area got congested during peak times and no daily maid service.

Hotel's Favourite
Great location in Carlsbad directly across the street from the beach with a beautiful view of the sunset from the viewing area. Easily walkable to Carlsbad Village. Older property, but well maintained and spotlessly clean. Amazing friendly staff. Frequent promos from Best Western make it an even better value than surrounding properties. My first choice in Carlsbad.

Excellent walking distance to an amazing beach. We were able to see dolphins, whales, sea lions, and birds on the beach. The sunsets were great. Excellent proximity to other beaches. Walking distance to excellent shopping and dining. The hotel was maintained very well with clean rooms and courtyard. Excellent sitting area of beach from deck.

Had a great experience on our family staycation. Andrew at the desk set a positive tone right from the start by going above and beyond with the check-in. Friendly service, good local advice, and genuine interest in making us feel welcome. All other staff we encountered were also friendly. Used the communal fire pit one evening. Comfortable chairs and such a cozy vibe. Also used the ocean-view seating area as a reading & people-watching perch one morning. Room worked perfectly for us (3 adults). We stayed in the 3rd floor suite (1 king, 1 queen hide-a-bed, 1 rollaway bed), which had a lovely view from the living room over the firepit, pool, and to the ocean. Perfect for catching a sunset. Used the fireplace (I fell asleep reading in front of it one night). Kitchen area was nice for storing food and being able to eat in a separate area instead of the combo sleeping/living area (since we used the hide-a-bed). Shower had plenty of hot water and water pressure was fine. King bed very comfortable. Hide-a-bed wasn't super as I prefer more support (slept on the couch as a couch instead) but never expect much from a hide-a-bed, so it didn't detract much from overall experience. Enjoyed walking along the beach. Great paved path at road level and at beach level, makes a nice loop. Also walked to a couple of restaurants (per Andrew's recommendation) in the area and did some shopping in the Village. Overall very pleased and will likely stay here again.

This place is always our favorite. The upstairs outdoor patio area overlooks the main beach for spectacular sunset watching. The new outdoor firepit is so inviting for winter warmth. Great location only a block from main part of town and the beautiful, long beach walk is directly across the street at Frazee State Beach. What more would we want.

The staff here is so friendly. They offered help frequently. The lounge and deck overlooking the ocean was really nice. Watching sunsets from deck was amazing. Breakfasts were good with variety. Staff at breakfast so friendly.

All staff are very nice and accommodating. Although an older property, the location is terrific, very clean and beds and bedding oh so comfortable. The front desk staff aim to please and the guest lounge which offers free breakfast and coffee throughout the day is very much appreciated and again, staff is awesome. When I return to Carlsbad l will definitely stay here again and can't thank them enough for a very comfortable stay.

Great view every morning with breakfast! We had great service at check-in and our room was clean plus a fireplace. It's a perfect location to walk to the beach or the shopping village. This is wonderful for couples, family, or if you need to stay for business and get to relax when you're not working.

We love getting away for an overnighter once a month. Carlsbad Village is definitely one of our favorite places to go. This Best Western is right across the street from the beach and is within easy walking distance to the town center. The room were clean and the bed extremely comfortable. The staff is friendly and professional. We will definitely be back. Thank you!

The location cannot be beat! The Carlsbad state beach is across the street, so you are not looking at other buildings. Easy access across the street to the beach. All the staff we talked to were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great. The woman tending it all three mornings we stayed there was fantastic! This is one of our favorite hotels we have stayed in. The pool was great. The laundry facilities were clean. There is a nice fire pit area, but it was warm when we were there so didn't sit around it, just looked at it from another sitting area. I was in the area for a conference and my family tagged along.
