Ideal location...beautiful view across the way to the ocean. Close to downtown and restaurants. Clean room, great beds. Excellent breakfast and friendly staff. I loved the fact that you could sit in comfortable chairs and watch the water. One complaint which we shared with the desk people. There is a step up into the room. There is no marking for...

The location could not be better--directly across the street from State Park Beach and a short walk to shops and restaurants in the village. Deck on 2nd floor of hotel gives perfect view of ocean and beautiful sunsets. Balcony rooms do not have much view of ocean, but not really necessary since you're so close. All staff were extremely friendly...

Perfect location across the street from the beautiful beach. Tons of restaurants and neat shops just a block or two away. Very nice people working here. Not a high end place but great for a relaxing stay. Not a resort, but a comfortable hotel. Nice continental breakfast and beautiful room to sit and eat and watch the ocean. Nice pool...

I stayed here for 2 weeks while on business. The staff couldn't do enough to help and Prudence, the manager, was an absolute star and even arranged for someone to do my laundry for me while I was at work. Views out over the beach. a nice stroll into the village with restaurants and shops. Would highly recommend this hotel...

I thought this location was a very peaceful quiet place to stay. I was in town for a conference at a large resort and decided to stay off property so I could be near the beach. Best decision I made. My only complaint about the rooms is the bathrooms. They are very small. Just enough room for toilet and tub.

Great place to relax, take a walk on the beach and go out to eat. The people at the desk were very pleasant and helpful. The room was also very comfortable. We had never been to Carlsbad before and were pleasantly surprised at what a nice town it is. The restaurants very near the motel have exceptionally good food.
