Stayed at CBTS towards the end of our 16 day road trip across California and Nevada. There is an outlet mall across from the hotel and also lots of eating places within easy walking distance. We ate at BJs and has superb steak and craft beer there.
Breakfast was actually better than expected and you could eat either in the breakfast room or on the tables outside which was good.
The resort is a few miles from Carlsbad village itself so you need to take a taxi or else drive if you want to sample the nightlife. We did a bar crawl on our second night (taxi both ways) and our favourite spots were Pizza Port and Hennesseys for the karaoke (if you haven't seen a middle aged couple doing Fifty Cent's Candy Shop then you haven't lieved ... hilarious !).
