Lovely hotel close to the beach

Posted May 27, 2015
Pros: Close to the beach
This hotel reminds me of a cute beach cottage resort. We stayed over Memorial Day weekend and had a great time. The staff is friendly and the resort is nice and clean. There is a courtyard out back facing the beach with a large grassy area to lay out on chairs or the kids can play. At night, there are several fire pits to sit around and chat or enjoy a glass of wine. The kitchen in each room is very nice if you have a family and would like to cook rather than eat out every night. There are a couple of restaurants on the property that we enjoyed...a nice little cafe for breakfast and lunch and also a Mexican restaurant that serves delicious food. We will definitely come back!

Great staff. Great location.

Nice place to stay. Wish they had OnDemand movies and room service, but so many restaurants close by, so no big deal.

Very Disappointed!

Posted May 5, 2015
Pros: Once we were inside the rooms they were very nice. Beds were very comfortable. The kitchens were complete with dishes and glassware.
Cons: Tell guests BEFORE arrival it is a construction site! We deserve the choice to not pay for a room that is not acceptable to inhabit!
Location: It is located close to the beach and nice cafes for meals.
My reservation was lost when I tried to check in. They found it after speaking with 3 staff members and had my name wrong. The room I booked was not the room they tried to give us. We walked down the hall to a construction site! Loud noises, construction staff everywhere, hammers, spray guns, plastic wrapped & taped windows, doors off hinges, metal supports holding beams, huge equipment blocking the walkway & the door to ground floor room. I took photo's to document the unacceptable condition of this hotel! The front desk said this was all that was available - even though I booked in January for May. After 3 more staff members we finally spoke to a manager who moved us to the third floor (still above the construction sight) for one night and waking up at 8am with 4 construction workers outside our window working on a support beam! The second night we were moved to the room we originally booked & it was beautiful. Sadly though my entire family booked this hotel for a family reunion and they all had the same disappointing experiences of staying in a construction site, moved several times to different rooms and no communication prior of this construction to be able to find a better hotel. VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED AND WILL NOT RETURN EVER!!!!

Beach- friendly

If I can get a room I like to stay here - it's clean and convenient. I'm usually here for business - so I have not had a chance to use its amenities - yet! I love being near the beach !

Great beach access!

Great beach access, and within walking distance to great shopping and great food. Small, beautiful and friendly coastal town. The hotel was very clean and staff was very friendly! It's the only place I will stay in Carlsbad!

Great Family Resort

Great get away for our family! It was very family friendly, and yet also quiet. We loved having the beach so close by, and the kids loved playing in the pool. Nice restaurants and shops nearby. Highly recommend.

Motorcycle getaway to SoCal beach area

Posted Apr 12, 2015 on Hotels
I was on a motorcycle trip with 3 friends and we wanted to stay by the water in Carlsbad. The location was perfect for us. Not on the beach but right next to it without needing to cross any busy roads. Great walk North and South on the beach. But the convenience to Bars and Restaurants nearby was an even better hit for us. I plan to bring my wife back for an extended stay. Hot tub worked out for us also.

The hotel was close to everything. Very nice we would stay again. The only thing that was bad was you could hear the noise above you.
