I like HGI's and this one was no exception. HGIs are typically clean and quiet. We wend driving down the California coast and stopped at the HGI in Carlsbad. Its just a few steps from the beach. Spent the day beach combing and relaxing. The pool and Jacuzzi were nice. They even make good food in their bistro. I usually...

Just spent a few days at this hotel for a business event. The room was clean and comfortable, but ordinary. My room looked out into an interior courtyard which meant I needed to keep my curtains closed for privacy, especially in the evening. Breakfast buffet was more extensive than many at the same price hotel, but it felt ordinary and...

We love Carlsbad, great restaurants, easy traveling, by Train, car, shuttle, walking. The weather was perfect and the hotel was great. The only downside was having to pay to park at the hotel, but other than that Our stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach was great. .

I stayed in this hotel for 6 nights and found it very comfortable. Rooms are quite large. Beds have adjustable mattresses for firm/soft. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. A shuttle service is provided for a 5 mile radius of the hotel, which I used several times as I did not have a car. There is a restaurant that's...

We stayed for three nights for a trip to Legoland and sightseeing in the San Diego area. The property is very nice, rooms are in good shape. Kitchen cooks a good breakfast and lunch for the price (it's not cheap, but considering it was a hotel kitchen, the quality was great!). We used the complimentary shuttle to get to/back from...

This is a very nice property with a fabulous location. Unfortunately, the hotel has purchased new beds that allow you to adjust the firmness and softness to your individual comfort. Sounds great right? But the beds are the most uncomfortable things imaginable. Every morning I woke up in a deep hole as the bed sinks in no matter what the...

This would have been a great stay if the beds weren't such a failure. They have new beds that supposedly allow you to set firm to soft. But they are horrible no matter what the setting.
