I stayed at the Inn for 4 nights while in town for a wedding. The location was fantastic, and within easy walking distance to everything you might want or need (shopping, spas, restaurants, etc.). The beach access was just across the street, but the outdoor area of the Inn had a very nice view of the ocean. The outdoor area...

Very nice rooms, complete with kitchenettes. We stayed in "condo" portion of the Inn. Coffee and newspaper every morning. Very nice pool. Very nice exercise room and stuff for kids (ping pong and bicycles). The proximity to restaurants and shopping were excellant.

The location was great, right across the street from the beach. We checked out bikes, beach toys, games for free and thoroughly enjoyed the sauna, spa and pool. Staff was friendly, as were guests, and the beds in our 2 BR condo were plush. Loved the free wifi and free WSJ newspapers too. Fun vacation!

Great spot with so much in walking distance. Everyone on property was super responsive and welcome to help when asked. Carlsbad and the property was a treat! Everything is close by, great Mexican food, wine shop and the property is very easy to walk to and from the beach.

The Carlsbad Inn is tops. The location is great. The accommodation itself is excellent- clean rooms and comfy beds. The staff was amazing. The food and fun were top of the line and the activities dept was helpful (loved that activities gal with the wide shoulders! Kelly? She was a hoot!!). I loved my stay here.
