We had a fantastic time! The hotel is very conveniently located just across the street from the beach. The views of the ocean from the deck and breakfast room are great! The hotel provided everything we needed to have a great time at the beach including chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, towels and toys! We were in walking distance of a plethora of great restaurants and shops. The pool and hot tub were refreshing and there was a laundry room reasonably priced which was a lifesaver when we all got unexpectedly soaked the first time we went to the beach. The staff is off the charts friendly and helpful! The fireplace in our room added a nice touch. We highly recommend this hotel!

This hotel has a perfect location in Carlsbad. It is right across the street from the beach with unobstructed views from the second story outdoor deck, which has many rocking chairs and several tables and chairs. It is also is only 2 blocks from the main Village area which has many shops and restaurants. The rooms were clean and well appointed with nice towels and bedding. Our room had a small balcony with two chairs and a partial ocean view. The complimentary breakfast had many choices for food and drink. The breakfast room was clean and bright with beautiful ocean views. The free internet worked well. The bathroom was very small, but clean. The room also had a mini refrigerator, microwave and safe. The compact courtyard included nice landscaping (a large and beautiful camellia bush was blooming), a small, but very clean pool and hot tub, and seating area. The hotel also provided complimentary loans of beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas- very nice service. We enjoyed our stay and would stay at this hotel again.

Possible best location and view from the location (not from the room. Room does not have direct view, no balcony). There was a “View Deck” from 2nd floor and that was wonderful! I could see the best sunset sitting there. Room was very dated, old and had this old-room smell, so I opened up the window when I checked in and left it open for a while. Fireplace was so nice (even though I did not use it…) Microwave and small refrigerator in room. I just put some drinks/ water bottle and left them overnight, did not check the temperature already set. Realized in the morning that all the drinks were frozen… Only the reason I chose “Best Western” was that I had the “GREATEST” Best Western experience from the last BW I stayed. I understand every BW was managed totally differently, so this Carlsbad one was different. Again, the room was very old….but my room was quite “roomy” with bathtub!! Toilet paper was set quite “far away” (?) from toilet seat. I am very short and I had a hard time to reach to the toilet paper. Small pool in the middle of the hotel plus hot tub, both were open at this COVID time. Fitness room was open from 8am-8pm and “appointment only” (I was told). Last BW I stayed, they had this coffee machine in coffee room and coffee was available 24/7, however, this Carlsbad BW, I was informed that coffee was available only during breakfast time. When I went into breakfast room, I was asked for name/room# and the server had to pack items into the bag and I could not touch anything. Even the coffee, I could not put my own sugar/cream in (server had to do that with glove on). I thought that was away too much (for coffee). With a little walk, Carlsbad village is right around the corner. There are plenty of restaurants/bars to choose from. And again, Oceanview was spectacular.

We are trying to figure out how this hotel got its good reviews. We booked this hotel based on them. Don't let them fool you! This is a dingy, dark property. The Front Desk lady was pleasant and did her job well. The room was horribly dark and miserable. It felt like we had stepped back to the 70's, but not in a cool, trendy way. The balcony door had no screen so we couldn't leave it open. The bathroom had ants on the floor and in the tub. The shower and window curtains looked old and wrinkled. The bottles of shampoo, etc, were the smallest we had ever seen and no extra toilet paper. The TV had no guide channel and there was no channel list in the room, so we had no idea about what we were watching. The Front Desk verified that they did, indeed, have no TV guide on the TV or in the room. The phone didn't work. Each time we attempted to call the Front Desk it gave a busy signal. The swimming pool had no loungers, chairs or tables around it. Covid is no excuse for this because all other hotels have these items at their pool. Breakfast was from 6:30 to 9:30, but when he got there at 6:45 we were told the hot sandwiches weren't ready and they were out of yogurt. We were given a frozen breakfast burrito. We microwaved it in the room and I swear it was the nastiest thing we've ever been given in a hotel; a tortilla with meat paste in it! It went straight in the garbage! We checked out and walked to the hotel next door where we found a room for less money and it was 10 times nicer!

This is a great location if you are looking to get to the beach quickly or wanting to walk to restaurants and shops. The cost of the rooms compared to the quality is just OK. The pictures on the website do not match what is in the rooms. The rooms are very dated and older than appears in the pictures. For the cost of staying there, I would defiantly look elsewhere next time. The staff was friendly. The rooms were very clean. I also knew the breakfast was minimal and that I understood being Covid. But the questioning of what room we were in and making sure I was the right person when I had a key in my hand and the breakfast place was well out of the way of people coming in off the street. Also, the breakfast was a water bottle, granola bar, and frozen burrito so the checking out of the breakfast food seemed so silly when it was so minimal. In all my years of traveling, I have never been so intrigued about who I was and which room I was in to get a brown bag breakfast. So after the disappointment in the room and weird breakfast service I am not planning on staying here again anytime soon.

We found out the hotel was having problems with a boiler when we could not get hot water for a shower at 6:45 a.m.. We had to leave for business appts without having shampooed or freshened-very uncomfortable. The management would only compensate us with 5,000 pts, about one quarter of what the $180.00 room cost. Had we been informed about the possibility of no hot water we would have elected to stay at another hotel. We will not risk staying there again.

Room was dusty, had spiderwebs on the walls and in the corners of the baseboards. Found what appeared to be blood splattered on the wall behind the nightstand, ants on the bed, and a pincher big in the bathroom. Shower curtain and rod were rusted. While I realize this is just a Best Western, we’re in the middle of a COVID 19 global pandemic, the hotel should at the very minimum ensure their rooms are cleaned and sanitized.

I reported these issues to the front desk and they did not seem the least bit concerned or surprised whatsoever. Take your money elsewhere. This place is no better than a run down Motel 6.

I stayed for a few nights during COVID and they have made masks mandatory, however there are always the stickler people who won’t wear them... They have placed plastic screens in the lobby and they also have grab and go breakfast. The rooms are a little bit dated, however they are still nice and very large. The hotel is steps from the beach, making it the perfect place for a beach vacation. I will be staying here again if I make it back to Carlsbad!

Carlsbad, CA is a beautiful destination and it can be fully enjoyed with a stay at the Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge. Located across the street from the beach entrance, you will find all that you need in walking distance. Shops, restaurants, bars, etc. The rooms are spacious and clean. My wife and I enjoyed the rooms on the south side where the balconies have an ocean view. Great spot for couples seeking a weekend of romance.

Hotel staff are helpful and the onsite breakfast is a plus, even in the era of pre-packaged food.

Onsite parking and great WiFi. Enjoy yourself!
