We had We love this Hotel!

Pros: Being right on the ocean.
Location: The location is perfect. Lots of restaurants within walking distance.
Our room was overlooking the pool and the ocean! We could sit out in the terrace and watch the beautiful sunset! We could also open the terrace door and hear the waves crash all night! We had the best sleep in our comfortable king bed, listening to the ocean waves! We didn't want to leave!

Right on the beach!

Posted Oct 17, 2016
Location: Walk on the beach, walk on the beach, walk on the beach! There are pickle all courts very nearby at an Episcopal church.
Love this place right on the beach! Great helpful staff, each one of them always with a smile and eager to go the extra mile. Nice rooms with good air conditioning and a terrific remodeled shower (loved that shower!). Restaurants and lots of shops within easy walking distance. And the beach was gorgeous and huge, even on the weekend was very uncrowded. Maybe miles long. One warning: if you have bad knees, there are stairs in hotel...stairs to go down to the beach and swimming pool. There are some rooms on street level so you can go easily to breakfast room, but lots of rooms on the way down to beach level. We will be back! Loved this stay!!!! Thank you!

Great place with great amenities

Posted Oct 17, 2016
Rooms are spacious and can't beat it for being right on the beach. Availability of towels, chairs, beach toys, boogie boards, etc., makes packing so much easier. Would like a fridge in the room, but cooler was fine. Breakfast was great and had a lot of choice for a continental breakfast. Can't wait to return!

Had to upgrade to get what we had wanted. The room was excellent. The big negative was no elevator only stairs to get to the room. Loved the view.

Comfortable inn close to everything

A perfect short stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was surprisingly upscale/updated. Steps away from a wonderful sandy beach and quaint Old Carlsbad. Amazing restaurant options within 3 blocks - our car remained parked during the stay.

Pros: Location.
Cons: Too much chlorine in the spa. The chlorine was so powerful it was burning my eyes. We had to get out of it. The pool could've been much warmer.
Location: Everything is in walking distance. Very nice shopping and excellent restaurants.
Make sure you ask for oceanfront view instead of partial view. We took the partial view and we were looking at the roof on the other building. But did see a little bit of the ocean. We went down to the desk and ask for an upgrade and they upgraded us for $30 more a day. It was well worth the money. Overall a very nice stay.

Loved our stay!

Posted Sep 1, 2016
Loved our 3 day 2 night stay! Staff were accommodating and friendly. Hotel right on the beach and made it so convient to take my 7 yo and 9 yo. The hotel provided beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, boogie boards. Continental breakfast daily and 5 minute walk to downtown Carlsbad where all the eateries were for lunch & dinner. Had an amazing time! We will definitely be back!
