Our family had our 2nd wonderful experience at this wonderful property. The Employees are awesome and took 5 star care of our family and extended family. We love Dane and Ryan, they went above and beyond to make our experience so wonderful in every way. We went for my son's 6th birthday to do Legoland for 5 days...They even surprised us with a special birthday cake and ice cream. They give a free shuttle to Legoland and where ever we needed. This is our 2nd time at this property and we will be back.

Room Tip: I like the rooms facing the ocean and pool. Some rooms you could get ocean, pool and you can see the...

I'm a Diamond Hilton member who recently stayed here with the rest of the family.

Pros: Nice outdoor pool, no parking charge

Cons: We had two queen size bed room. Very small. Out family felt trapped. Housekeeping banged on door at 800am. Not good when family is trying to sleep in before a busy beach day. Paid 73.00 for breakfast buffet not worth it.

Would not stay here again, I'll go to Homewood Suites.

Being a Hilton Honors member I made my choice due to location business requirement. I have never stayed in any Hilton Garden Inn before and had some prejudice. At the end the several days of the stay provided very good standard while I have eaten only breakfast.

We preferred to eat in Carlsbad restaurants that offer choice of good red lobsters, fish etc. not available in hotel restaurant. But it was fine.

Room Tip: Rooms should look outside not into yeard with pool that is sometimes noisy.

We stayed as a loyalty member for four nights and loved it. The service from check in to room service was awesome. The kids loved the pool, the movie on the grass in the evening, and the popcorn. We will definitely be back? The rooms were a little small for 4 of us but adequate

I sought this hotel out based on it's location due to business needs and as a loyal "Hilton Honors" member. Due to some unique personal requirements, some members of my family joined me during my stay and we ended up extending our stay a few days longer. Beyond the hotels great location (literally across the street from the beach or as "beach front" as one can get in San Diego County) and wonderful facilities and "physical plant" it was the staff that made our stay so great! From the front desk team, to the restaurant staff, to the GM, literally everyone went out of their way to assist us with all of our needs. The rooms were a nice size and were well equipped and were super clean. And the programming for families and kids was simply awesome: Outdoor Movies on the weekend, X-Box-Game Room on overcast days, horseshoes, etc., etc. Our new residence is near the hotel and in North County/San Diego so my/our future stays here will not likely be many. But I will be sending "all" of our client and family visitors to this property, if possible. Keep up the great work!

First the positive comments: I have never been to a hotel where the staff were so friendly. All were nice, especially, Kyle, Raoul, Mariah, Dane, Anthony etc. and two lovely ladies (we didn't get their names) with long hair -- They go out of their way to make suggestions on activities to do and places to go as well as to arrange rides for you to your various destinations. The complimentary shuttle to Legoland, Tamarak Beach, the Village and to Oceanside was a great treat. The breakfast was pretty good too with made to order waffles, pancakes, omelettes, scrambled eggs etc. The pretty lady at the desk (Hawaiian?) even gave my 7 year old a complimentary plush toy crab.

The positive comments far outnumber the negative comments. My only negative comments are: the site says the hotel is near the beach but the nearest beach is a steep, hilly, rocky beach with cactus all over it so you need to ask for the shuttle service to Tamarack beach or Oceanside. Also, when we went to the pool, they ran out of towels. We asked the people cleaning up and serving drinks 5 times for towels and each time they said they were trying to contact housekeeping. Since it was getting cold, after almost 2 hours of waiting in vain for towels, we took some of the blankets laid out on the lawn for movie night to dry off. The bathtubs in the rooms could also be cleaner.

This hotel is right across the street from the beach. We had a room with an ocean view. WOW! We arrived after 10pm and the front desk still had cookies!

For business people that want to bring their families, this is a great place for it. We saw kids playing ping pong and swimming in the outdoor pool when we got in. The fitness room had the standard equipment.

The room was clean and comfortable and very quiet. I am a light sleeper so the quietness is very important. The room temperature was perfect.

We had the breakfast and the omelettes were very good. The servers were friendly. Some people ate outside, but we opted to eat inside.

I would definitely stay here again.
