Ideal location...beautiful view across the way to the ocean. Close to downtown and restaurants. Clean room, great beds. Excellent breakfast and friendly staff. I loved the fact that you could sit in comfortable chairs and watch the water. One complaint which we shared with the desk people. There is a step up into the room. There is no marking for this or warning anywhere. Most places are just walk into the room. When your arms are full, as mine were, you can trip...which I did and face ... Read more

Clean and comfortable room with friendly staff. Good breakfast. in a nice dining room with beach view. However we should have been informed that there was a construction site just across the street from our room. "Not" a relaxing vacation on the beach!

Nice room, good side view of the ocean. Breakfast was good. Had a cool pancake maker. Better than making your own waffles and making a mess or burning them. Very clean eating area. Beds were comfy. The shower room is a bit snug since the sink is not connected in the same area. Not bad, I would stay there again. Maybe next time I am visiting my sister in O'side.

Hotel was right across from the beach. Really nice to wake up to the ocean view and walk down to the beach for some sand play time. Room was nice, clean. Balcony was pretty cool even if it wasn't at the front of the hotel. Side view is not bad. Parking was a big scary. Bit tight to fit in a truck. Good breakfast, loved the pancake maker. Kinda of missed the eggs and bacon or sausage options but they had that in the sandwich so I guess it was kinda the same thing.

This hotel was great, from check in to check out! The lady behind the desk was so helpful and friendly. It is right across the beach and a quick walk. I loved the sun deck that I could relax on the chairs and look at the beach. The breakfast was great as well. I will definitely be coming back here!

Everyone was so friendly. The breakfasts were very tasty. They are right across the road from the beach. Our bed was very comfortable, and the room was clean. Parking was included and so easy! The only down side would be that one day, we returned to our room, and at 4 p.m. it still had not been cleaned. This delayed our dinner plans a bit. We used the hot tub several times--very nice. Another family said the pool was nicely heated as well.

Reserved a room with a view of the beach. You could see the beach if you walked out into the balcony which really had a view of a driveway/alley and cranked your head so you could just barely see the beach. Very misleading in the description of the room. Room was musty, very small & outdated. Bathroom was tiny & the sink was outside of the bathroom in the hallway as if it was an after thought.

My feet were completely black from walking on the floors in the hotel room barefoot. I checked the others in the family and they were the same. It was disgusting. They need to shampoo their carpets. We put towels on the floor to walk on after the first day.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel across the road from the beach in Carlsbad California. The rooms are clean, the beds are great and their buffet breakfast is very nice. The breakfast room is facing the beach so it is a nice way to start the day. There is a nice pool, jacuzzi, and a deck with lounges facing the beach. You can enjoy the sun without the sand! The hotel is in walking distance the all the restaurants and night life in this lovely beach community. Give it a try.

Any place on the beach is going to be expensive. This property was not fancy but certainly "just fine," considering the other options. The breakfast was of a higher quality than most free hotel continental breakfasts I've had. One negative: when we arrived at 10 p.m., there was no parking available! The front desk clerk moved her car for us to be able to park on the street. Whaaat? That seems kind of crazy to me that a late arriving guest would not have parking reserved on the property.

should have a back up plan, when elevator brakes. Elderly couple placed on 3rd floor, had to go down 3 flights of stairs to get to the car, and 2 flights to go eat breakfast Also breakfast was poor choices, for those following a high protein diet..

The location of this hotel makes it ideal if you want to spend time on the beach and walk the village. Room was in clean order and I had no problems except for the family who decided to take their kids into the hot tub when it was already at maximum stated capacity of six people. Would be nice if the pool and spa were open later on weekends. I was not able to get into the spa.

The only negative was, we were to have a room overlooking the pool, instead we were looking at a housekeeping room. Everything else was perfect. The breakfast was great, the sun deck was perfect for the late afternoon viewing of the ocean and sunset. The King Room was large and the maid service was perfect. The room was expensive, we stayed for a week, would have loved to stay longer! We will return, but hopefully, we will be looking at the pool next time.

If you're looking for an affordable beach location, this is it. The rooms don't overlook the ocean directly but it can be viewed from some of the balconies. Realistically, you want to walk on the beach or view it from the oceanside walk anyway. The hotel is directly across from the beach and the 2nd floor patio area allows you to sit and watch the ocean, sunsets and/or passers-by very comfortably. Clean, comfortable and friendly staff.
