I booked a Travellers Suite, which is their smallest accommodation as I was there for a course and not spending much time in my room. I was there for 7 nights and the room that they gave me was larger than I thought it would be so I am not sure if they may have upgraded me, but they didn't...

Our stay was perfect. The location is within walking distance to restaurants and shops and the beach. It was great to park and not have to drive. The grounds are beautiful. The beds were comfortable and it was nice to have a kitchen. We had exceptional weather and used the pool and hot tub. The fire pits were very inviting...

First time in Carlsbad, would definitely go again and stay here. The room was clean and fresh with a Hawaiian theme, surf boards and long boards were free to hire, and the beach is just across the road. Fire pits at night, hot tub, great friendly staff - when I'm back, I'll be staying here.

This resort is beautiful! It is not like other hotels. Ocean Palms Beach Resort is very homey and welcoming, has a great beachy feel to it. Location is perfect, conveniently across the street from the beautiful Carlsbad state beach :) we loved staying here!

Ocean Palms Beach Resort was perfect in every way. We rented the Molokai Cottage. The cottage was extremely clean and had everything that we needed. The staff at Ocean Palms were knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and courteous. Loved all the outdoor areas, including the fireplace and fire pits. Definitely highly recommend.

This hotel is so centrally located within Carlsbad. We parked our car on Friday and did't even go back to it until we left Monday. We rode our beach cruisers everywhere or walked. The hotel has all the beach chairs and towels you need and it has just been renovated. It is a beautiful location and very nice facility. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For generations, families visiting San Diego's North County for fun and relaxation on America's greatest beaches have enjoyed staying at the Ocean Palms. Our casual Carlsbad resort is ideally located along the coast in Carlsbad Village, home to one of Southern California's best collections of shops and restaurants. The Ocean Palms offers a wide choice of Carlsbad accommodations. From comfortable budget rooms to luxury suites, 1, 2 and 3 Bedrooms, some with ocean views, every room offers a fully equipped kitchen. We have the unique ability to provide you with the exact sleeping arrangements you need. Whether it's adjoining rooms or a suite, we can get you the space you need at a rate you'll love. Enjoy a continental breakfast, with fresh fruit, fresh-baked cookies, Danishes, and fresh-brewed coffee. Enjoy the laid back atmosphere and the lush landscaping. We're pet friendly, there's free WiFi, a heated pool and Jacuzzi. We love families who can't get enough of the beach, so we provide free beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and even free surfboards. The beach is right across the street, and the charming Village of Carlsbad is just a block away. Visiting Legoland? We're only a 10 minute drive. We're also just three blocks from the Coaster railroad station, so you can ride the train and take in all the attractions in San Diego, from a Padres Game at Petco Park to a tour of the historic aircraft carrier U.S.S. Midway. Here in North County San Diego, explore wineries and microbreweries. Welcome to your beachside home away from home. Come to the Ocean Palms, where cool Pacific breezes sweep across the enchanting Village of Carlsbad. There is no better place for families to capture the magic of Southern California. ... more   less
