Came in to town not really knowing where my friend and I were going to stay and happened to find Ocean Palms because it was right across the street from the beach. It was way better than we expected and it is a true gem nicely hidden and quiet. We just wanted a basic room and was immediately upgraded for free becaue they had the room to accommodate it. Wow! I loved the kitchen area and bathroom was very nice, but the best was the door to the room that could be left half open to let the amazing scent and breezes of the ocean in. This is by far the best place I have stayed in Carlsbad or North County. I dont want to go anywhere else.

Very Nice! Had a street side room with the ocean across the street and down the steps, it was great! The office staff keeps the freshly baked cookies well stocked, many other nice treats and coffee available. The guys at the desk were awesome! Wonderful room, wish it was home! Don't hesitate to stay here, shopping, food, entertainment and transit within easy walking distance. Hope to go back.

Room Tip: For close to the water, ask for the room on the corner, near the steps to the beach. Great 2 bdrm!

A quick trip to get away from the heat of Arizona to the beautiful and quiet Ocean Palms. We have been coming here for over 50 years and it's always a delight to see Barry, Bo, Tina and the gang, who seem like family and always treat you as such. Can't wait to come back!

The proximity to the beach is awesome. We stayed in an older room in the hotel but it was clean and had everything that we needed. The new and remodeled rooms look beautiful. The outdoor areas of the hotel make you feel like you are in a tropical paradise - flowers, plants everywhere. They have fire pits, grills, beach towels, everything needed to have a wonderful time. This hotel is close to restuarants, shops, and did I mention the beach. Literally across the street and down the stairs. The staff there is wonderful also - very helpful.

Room Tip: The standard suite has a queen bed and a hide a bed. Would not recommend the hide a bed for adults but it did not ruin our vacation.

I am a local resident in Carlsbad, and frequently recommend this place to family and friends. Recently, we booked a room at the Ocean Palms for some friends of ours that use to live in Carlsbad in the 1960s. It was going to be a nostalgic trip back for them, and they wanted to see the ocean and walk to town. Ocean Palms made this possible. The location is excellent, you don't need a car for anything. The resort provides you with any extras you may need; beach towels, boogie boards, etc. The rooms are clean and recently upgraded. They even have an onsite shop/market. Todd and Barry Sr. at the front desk treated us great, they are just fabulous. They let us come in a little early so we could set up some things in the room for our friends....wine, cheese, etc. What a great time!
