Ocean Palms Beach Resort
Ranked #2 of 36 Hotels in Carlsbad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Just back from spending 3 wonderful days at this hotel. Located right across the street and down 60 stairs to an uncrowded beach. Close walking distance to everything. We stayed in a studio(223) that had a full kitchen minus a microwave. I have nothing but nice things to say about this gem. It was quite, clean, offered a pool, hot tub, firepits...you could borrow beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, hair dryers, boogie boards....Beds were comfy and the room was enough for the two of us. Everyone on staff is friendly and helpful. I have one suggestion. .... That is I wished they had supplied a broom for every room. Even though they have an outside shower if you go to the beach you will get sand in your room. A broom could have helped contain the spread....Other than that....we will return.

I've stayed numerous places in Carlsbad. Been coming here for years. Must say this is the best place my wife and I have stayed due to the beautifully remodeled rooms, immaculate grounds, and the super accommodating customer service. Barry and Tina were especially helpful.

The fireplaces pool and jacuzzi are well kept and perfect to relax by/in. As far as the beach, you are literally a 30 second walk to the sand of the best family beach in the area.

They have chairs, boogie boards and towels ready for you and the Pantry is great if you need a quick snack/drink or to grab essentials like Tylenol or sunscreen.

Wanna thank the OPBR crew for making my wife and I's 15 year anniversary a special one.

This is the best place in the village to stay due to their location, accommodations and service. And I'm a picky dude ;)

We enjoyed every moment the location of the room it was the best and a few steps of the beach. Everything very clean and the housekeeper very friendly. To bad we had to leave after. Staying for 4 days. Definitely I will recommend to any one. Hope we can come back soon..

Great location. Allows pets. The first night we were woken up by a screaming drunk lady in some kind of domestic dispute. The air conditioning in the two bedroom units only cool the living room not the bedrooms. It appeared that non renters were sneaking into the complex and using the amentities. Slightly over priced for the experience.

All of the staff were super friendly and helpful. The whole place is kept clean and maintained. Housekeeping came daily to give us fresh towels make our beds and we saw them throughout the grounds making sure everything was kept clean and fresh. The hotel is about 50ft from stairs leading down to the beach. They have complimentary beach towels boogie boards surf boards and other amenities for use by guests for free. The pool and jacuzzi is well maintained clean and gets great sun for tanning during the day. And the pool is heated for a comfortable swim instead of an arctic shock like some other hotels. Overall our stay at ocean palms was very laid back and mellow. I only have two problems with them which were minor. Our a.c. in our room didnt seem to work correctly (although we did not take them time to report it as we werent that bothered by it at the time). The other is that the layout of our room, while logical for such a resort was a bit inconvenient because our bed was directly in front of the window by the walkway so we had to keep pur curtains closed for privacy and couldn't enjoy the ocean breeze as much as we would've liked. Overall tho this is a great place to stay. It was within walking distance to everything in the little carlsbad village and the beach and we hardly drove anywhere all weekend.

We were so grateful to the friendly staff helping our family and dog in recent fire evacuations. We love to visit Maui and so expensive to travel there now. We have found an amazing place for our "staycation". Beautiful tropical setting, beautiful room decor, awesome kitchens. The kids loved the pool after a day at the beach. The fun atmosphere and fire pits in the evening was a treat. Easy walk to the beach, close to fun downtown Carlsbad fun and restaurants. We look forward to going back this summer when we can enjoy and relax more next time.
