Great hotel and a great location in proximity to Legoland! To get to Carlsbad Beach is not an easy trek. Have to cross a busy intersection and walk down a tight trail down through an incline of rocks. Wish it was within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The shuttle service is great but have to wait a while for pick up. Beautiful sunsets, great breakfasts, friendly staff and clean rooms! Great value!

We've made an unplanned stop at this hotel and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of accommodations and amenities. Moreover, the proximity to Legoland and the free shuttle made our stay much more pleasant so much so that we extended it for another night. Tom, at the front desk, was extremely helpful with recommendations and good advice for awesome local restaurants. Not only I would stay there again, but I will also send people there.
Keep up the good job, guys!

I stayed here for the first time this week on business travel. Loved the location. Amazing view of the sunset directly across the street. The rooms are standard, and the front desk guy was a bit mechanical. I'm sure I will stay here again. It's a great value and a cool location.

My family of 5 stayed here for over a week as a relocation trip, looking for a house in the area. What a terrific experience! I am not an unseasoned traveler and can say unequivocally that the staff at this hotel is absolutely Top Tier. They seem to have it as their mission to always be friendly and courteous while ensuring the guests are never inconvenienced. There were several instances where the staff went out of their way to help us out (retrieving a lost iPad from a local restaurant - thanks, Tom; and ensuring we made a train on time). We felt really well looked after and can guarantee that when we have the chance to recommend hotels in the area, this Hilton Garden Inn will be top on the list. Some by-name thanks (certain to leave someone out): Tom, Paige, Kandace, Keith, Manny, the waiter from NY, Soledad, Reggie, Anthony, the manager from Serbia, et al.. Thanks again!

The staff at the HGI Carlsbad are all focused on minimizing your waiting time and maximizing your vacation time. Candace at the front desk was basically our concierge for the week. She booked our Lego Land and SeaWorld Tickets for us, suggested great restaurants, and provided directions as needed. Mike in the restaurant was also very helpful and thoughtful by bring our last night's dinner (they make great pizza) to the pool so we could enjoy the sunshine. The manager, Brant was extremely kind and helped me when I tripped and fell while walking on the 101 down to the beach (be careful). Brant helped me get cleaned up and provided me with first-aid supplies. I would recommend this hotel to families who are traveling with children under 12 years old (mine are 7 and 9) and are looking for a conveniently located hotel with a view of the ocean without the price tag of a full service resort hotel.

I always enjoy staying at this hotel because it's very nice, clean and well-maintained. I especially like it's location so near the ocean as well as it's proximity to my business meetings. Also, the warm cookies in the afternoon are superb!

I really love this hotel. Just walk across street to beach. Quiet, clean hotel. The staff is very friendly and responsive. I liked having cook-to-order eggs every morning and a selection of fresh cookies at night. They also a shuttle service to area beaches, downtown Carlsbad, etc.
