Been coming here for years for a family reunion. Nice location within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The wifi is pretty bad, but the current management is very accommodating in all other respects.

You may not be able to spend the day on the beach due to cold weather but you still get the views and the ability to walk the town to enjoy shopping and eating!

Hi, I use to live in Carlsbad and would like to go for a visit by myself. My husband passed 8yrs ago and we had planned on moving back to Carlsbad about this time. I want to be near to where I use to live which was 1 block from beach off Carlsbad Blvd, very close (walk) to "downtown" little ole downtown Carlsbad but I'm not sure if this is the right area. Nearby was the flower fields,Palomar Airport Rd, I've got fart brain right now...LOL Oh yes, the windmill , it was a restaurant right on the blvd. Can't think right now, but I think you get the picture. I want to know where I am and the area. Rt 5 access was not far at all around the corner . I lived on Chestnut St, right off of the blvd. how close are you to what I have mentioned. Sorry not much more help but it's been qa while. we came back to new england in 1982, but I left my heart in Carlsbad :((((( Joan
