                  Great Hotel Great hotel but about 5 miles from the heart of Carlsbad. If you have a car, it’s not a problem. If not, you may want to stay elsewhere.

                    Very nice facilities and amenities It was a very nice hotel, it’s normally for Rome shares but they open up for normal hotel use if they are not being used so the tenants are nice and take pride in keeping it nice and clean and are respectful of others
