“Great Family Resort”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We just spent a week at Carlsbad Inn. We had a very busy week filled with lots of activities! Very family oriented resort. Karoke,family movie on the lawn (Frozen) Kids sack races,Hulahoop contest., Live music,a clown,snacks and lots more! The rooms were very nice! Everyone at the resort was friendly and helpful,even the security staff! We had a blast! The computers need updating but no big deal. We will definitly return!

I have stayed at the "Inn" many times in the past due to business in Carlsbad and this time I returned with my wife after 5 years of absence. Since I retired meanwhile, my wife and I wanted to have a great time over the Easter Holidays - and we got what we wanted. Most of the public areas at the Inn have been nicely renovated but kept the "Old World" flair, which actually creates all the charm of the Inn and of its vicinity - a feeling of easy-going 19th Century European Carlsbad.
Amenities & WiFi connections were good. Alas, we would have liked to have at least a (real) breakfast room. There are no food & beverages on offer (except for vending machines) - one has to make use of the restaurants and vendors, which are close-by and plentiful. Nevertheless, a lot of fond memories were refreshed and the dolphins' play in the ocean right in front of the Inn allowed for a bonus experience.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the sea - great view and you can hear the waves. The rooms facing the Carl...

We have been on vacation for weeks and this is our last stop before heading home. We got a sweet with ocean view. I can hear the waves. Large enough room for a gathering. Heading down to beach in a couple hours. This the perfect spot, easy walking to shops and food and waves close by. We wil return

We stayed for one night here in early May and really liked it. We got in late as we had to drive from Orange County airport, so didn't really see how lovely the facilities were til the morning. The grounds are well-maintained and gorgeous with an abundance of flowers everywhere. The staff were friendly and helpful, and check-in and check-out was a breeze. Our room was in the hotel portion of the facility, and was quite nice. The beds were extremely comfortable, the bathroom clean, not too small, and had great bath products. It was also very quiet at night. In the morning, my five-year-old and I took a leisurely stroll into Carlsbad Village. It's a great town for walking, and there were many restaurants to choose from including two breakfast spots on either side of the hotel. We even found a delicious doughnut store not too far which made the morning for my little guy. The pool is not large, but perfect for a quick dip, and the hotel has a lovely outdoor sitting area that faces the ocean with chairs which would be perfect for relaxing. The beach access is from the front of the hotel, or you can walk to the sidewalk and that leads to the beach as well. It's a gorgeous beach. We wished we could have stayed here longer. The hotel is a bit older, but well-maintained, and is a fabulous location. The Coaster train station is near by. On our next trip to San Diego we would definitely stay here. It's a great spot for couples, or if you have a family.

Walk across the road you are in Carlsbad, walk down the access stairs and you are on the beach. Rooms are pleasant and the staff more so. Downtown is a village with great shops, atmosphere and restaurants. Short walk to the train station to catch the "The Coaster" to San Diego. Quick drive to Lego Land. Gym has good equipment and you can get beach towels there for the beach. Plenty of activities for the kids. Has live music during an afternoon at least once a week. Time share units have full kitchen, plenty of room and resort is Gold Crown rated. Check-in is busy on weekends but effective none the less. Maintenance is Johnny on the spot if there is a problem. Gotta love the care they take of the resort.

Room Tip: Kids spa is right next to swimming pool - adult spa at the other end of the green.

This resort was the best. We visited Carlsbad, CA for our honeymoon. When we came to check in the process was fast and easy. When we got into our room we were pretty impressed. Our room had a full kitchenette with all of the supplies you would need to make, severe and clean up a meal. They give a free unlimited dvd rental card so you could get movies from the kiosk in the vending area. The grounds were beautiful. They offered a pool, two hot tubs (one hot tub was for adults only which was nice), loungers, tables and chairs, two fire pits (that are lit nightly) and you were just across the street from the beach. At the back of the property you would go down a set of stairs, cross a small street, go down some stairs and then you were on the beach. It sounds worse that it was but it was very nice and you could see the ocean from the back of the property. They also had a private cabana that you could only get into by key card access. It was the best place to watch the amazing sunsets that carlsbad beach had to offer. You could also check out beach chairs, umbrella, boggie boards, sand toys, bikes, strollers, etc. They had everything you needed to have a great day. The location was convenient to all the local shops and restaurants. You could walk to just about everything. Whatever you do when you are in carlsbad don't miss the sunset. It is an awesome experience that I'm glad me and my new husband were able to do together.

Green Features: They are very eco friendly. They only changed your towels and sheets when you leave a card letting them know they need to be changed. They also have a master switch for each room that turns all electronics off in the room as you leave. Recycle bin were all over the hotel.
