Just spent the weekend on a quick getaway and found this gem! From your first step into the lobby you feel welcomed. Great staff and even better location right on the beach! Huge ocean front and ocean view rooms were perfect for relaxing on the balcony and forget about everything else. Excellent amenities in the rooms, fridge, wet-bar, pillow menu - they will even set up chairs and umbrellas on the beach for you if you'd like! My only complaint that I have is the noisy air conditioners in the room - it was pretty loud during the night, but worked great (We even heard the couple at the table next to us at breakfast saying the same thing about their room AC). This did not ruin our stay by any means, just could be kind of annoying at times - good thing the sound of the waves helped drown out the sound!

Great location close to Carlsbad Village - plenty of places to eat, shop, browse nearby.

Although we were only there for one night, can't say enough how great this place is...we will be back!

Room Tip: Room 53 (our room) is right below breakfast room. Lot's of noise as they set-up for breakfast, and then during the breakfast hours.

Clem, very well appointed, great helpful staff. Free WiFi and parking. Rooms are large and very comfortable. Even had queen/king sized pillows in a variety of softness, instead of those standard sized pillows, really appreciated that. Will come back again for sure.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a full ocean view if you love the ocean and sound of waves

This is our 4th visit to this hotel - and we've never been disappointed. The rooms are huge and spotless. The buffet breakfast was not as good this time with mostly packaged pastry but not the hotel's fault. They'll be redoing the kitchen soon and will be better than ever. We found it hard to leave the room because the pounding waves kept drawing us back... the surf seems to wipe out all stress. Wonderful break from the city life.

Room Tip: we prefer the pool terrace rooms as there is an elevator

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had an oceanfront King room, which was huge, with a balcony facing the ocean. A pool terrace King would also give you a nice view, but the balconies are less private. The guest lounge, where breakfast is served, offers stunning ocean views. We loved the rocking chairs placed outside throughout the property for all to enjoy the views. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. It was wonderful to be able to walk everywhere in Carlsbad Village to enjoy dinner and shopping. We’ll definitely be back!!

This is a wonderful hotel in a beautiful location. We had a partial ocean view room, but could see the amazing Carlsbad sunsets perfectly. The room was huge, clean and a great place to relax. The staff went out of their way to ensure that everything was perfect...and it was! In particular they spent a lot of time ensuring that the pool and beach areas were kept spotless and that everyone had beach chairs, towels, umbrellas and boogie boards. The location is great for evenings too with dozens of restaurants within 10 minutes walk. Loved it!!
