“Great Beach Find”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

I own a timeshare at Carlsbad Inn and have stayed there many times. The property is kept in beautiful condition, there are many amenities--including a nice fitness center, ping pong table, bicycles, beach toys, lovely common area, and activities. The beach is very nice for swimming or walking along. There are great restaurants within walking distance as well as many attractions within a short drive.

It's a great place for fun and relaxation!

During the month of April each year my wife and I do four time-share in a row, a week at each one, our first stop this year was at Carlsbad-Inn, in Carlsbad, CA. Carlsbad-Inn is rather old, but they update everything from time to time. Our stay was great, the weather was very nice, the view was great and the bicycling along the coastal highway from Ocenside to Encinitas was great fun, always good views of people and things. We love being in the Carlsbad, CA area in the springs

Room Tip: Be sure you get a room with a baconly facing the interior grounds,

Hot water went out on Sunday night and wasn't fixed until late Monday (cold showers in the am). Not a good start to the week. Elevator went out Monday evening and was out all day Tuesday and Wednesday morning. The desk could only apologize yet nothing was done to fix the problem until Wednesday. It seems as if the staff heard too many complaints and just didn't care to hear another. The management should have notified us of the problems and tried to make amends, instead they chose to ignore the guest service issue. Not a place I would recommend for a timeshare or vacation. Don't trade your timeshare for this place or buy a foreclosure from them or you'll regret it.

Booked this thru living social, purchased 2 nights and we were so happy we did. The staff was very accomodating, the property was beautiful and well maintained. Our room had a view, although it didn't have a balcony (I think it was the only one) and was updated. You are right in the middle of Carlsbad village, a short walk from so many restaurants...you are also overlooking the coast, a 1 min walk from the beach.

I decided to take my girlfriend down to San Diego for our spring break excursion. Our stay at the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort was amazing. It was located within a short walking distance of the beach and many delicious restaurants. We would walk down to the beach to catch some sun during the day or walk down there to watch the sunset at night. The room was spacious and very relaxing to retreat to after a long day at the Zoo or Sea World. The Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort provided us with the perfect location for a memorable spring break.

We are San Diego residents and because it was a surprise getaway Carlsbad was a great place to celebrate my husband's birthday for a couple of days.
I work in the industry and was able to notice From the time we checked in at midnight the front desk agent talked to us like if is was 8am and he was just starting his day, offered to help us with our bags and told us that we didn't have to bother moving our car to the garage.
Next morning went to ask a couple of questions about how to get to the beach for a morning jog and again the agents at the front desk went above and beyond, concierge and management (AGM).
Accomodations were excellent in room amenities and the facilities in general.
Someone that stoodout for us was Juan from maintenance, he saw that we were already checked out and with our bags on our way to drop off beach towels he stop what he was doing to help us...that is being hospitable and exhibiting great service "Juan is a Superstar" at Carlsbad Inn Beach resort.

Be warned that if you are planning on working (yes, because your position is of such and just need a couple of hrs) you CAN NOT use the VPN Carlsbad Inn provide. I actually went back to the timeshare we stayed in the previous week (St Clemente Inn) and they accomodate me even though we we not staying there this week. My work group travel all the time with our laptop and Carlbad Inn is my first known place where I CAN NOT connect through VPN!!!
