The hotel is directly across the Carlsbad State Beach and from some balconies, you can get a glimpse of the ocean. The rooms are spacious and have the standard amenities. Mine, a King room, had a microwave and fridge which was very helpful. The best thing about it is the location. You can simply cross the street and walk across...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 March 2017

We stayed at this Best Western Hotel in early March, 2017, and also in March, 2016. Our main reason for this motel is that it is across the street from the beach in Carlsbad, California... and you can view the entire beach from the hotel deck, and quite a bit of the ocean from most of the rooms. Park your...

My girl friend and I spent one (1) night here while driving the coast. What a find! A reasonable price, very good amenities, and an exceptional location. The second story lounge and outdoor patio faces the beach - what a view! And all that Carlsbad Village has to offer is at your door step. Nice rooms, large, well equipped, quiet...

Wow, great hotel. Directly across from the beach. Great for families because of the easy access. Small hotel feels very quaint. Rooms for very nice beds were heavenly. Side view of the ocean from the balcony. Parking was the best part. Covered and direct access to the hotel interior through a locked door. The staff was wonderful especially Prudence. She...

The Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge is perfectly situated on the beach to allow quick access. The hotel is well furnished and is modern. The staff there care about the appearance and functionality of the hotel. Can't wait to visit again.

Nice location for going to visit lots of fun, beautiful places in the Carlsbad area! Highly recommend the Flower Fields as well as the Butterfly Farms. And of course some beach time. Joan at the Front Desk check-in was a lovely start to a quick visit to beautiful Carlsbad.

For a best western near the beach you cant beat this place with a family. Beach chairs, boogie boards, towels, parking, breakfast, hot tub, pool and a very friendly staff. The location is noisy (expected and okay with windows closed) due to being near the Pacific Highway and some local construction, but you only have to walk across the street...

We checked out of a hotel earlier than expected and found this one. Everything about it was perfect. The room was a great size with comfortable beds for us all. The location was perfect, the pool and hot tub were lovely. The staff (especially Prudence) were friendly and great fun. The reception lent out body boards for the kids and...
