The hotel is located directly across the coast highway from the ocean. The views are spectacular. The hotel staff were among the friendliest, professional, and helpful of any hotel staff I have encountered in years. The room faced the courtyard and was very quiet. I strongly recommend this hotel.

Best Hotel near the beach. You could not ask for a better location near the ocean, Legoland, and restaurants. Be careful getting into the pool since some spots need replastering and its wise to bring your own drinks since the Pantry is not well stocked.

This is the friendliest and most comfortable hotel I've stayed in and it doesn't hurt that it is right across the street from the Carlsbad beach. The rooms are spacious and clean. The grounds offer many outdoor sitting areas and activities.

This is a very nice hotel. Staff friendly. Rooms clean. Remembering it is right across the street from the ocean things do get rusty so it is not pristine. They have lots of places to sit and relax and breath that ocean air. There is no beach access. When you cross the street there is a path you can walk...

This venue was referred to me by a fellow employee who goes there annually. It was everything she said it was and more!! Excellent location with lots of eating places, both upscale and fast food, very close. There was a premium outlet mall within walking distance as well. Beautiful, clean, large rooms with lots of great amenities including Kreuig coffeemaker,...

We booked this hotel as we were attending a nearby wedding. Great location, easy access to the interstate and other local roads in the area. Booked a partial oceanview, partial view was correct as we only saw a tiny sliver of water from our window past the pool view. Rooms were spacious and clean. Beds were fairly comfortable, though did...

I was double charged for my room. I have tried and tried to talk to someone in accounting to get it reversed. I only get their VM and front desk tells me Melissa is returning phone calls. We booked 5 rooms for 4 nights, apparently they are great at taking money and not returning it.

This hotel is located across from the beach. Beautiful view and accommodations. A smaller hotel that makes every guest feel special. The staff went above and beyond to make the stay special. I highly recommend this hotel.

This location is typical of the brand. It is clean and the rooms are a nice size. It is located right across the street from Carlsbad beach and about 3 miles from the village. Spend the extra few bucks for an ocean front room and enjoy the spectacular sunsets over the Pacific Ocean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast...
