We visited the Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront on Wednesday 7/2/14 and they were not very busy; therefore, not sure why we were not upgraded to a better room for the room we got was a room that overlooked the trailer park, trains, and were the service vehicles back into the building. The rooms are the standard square box but they do have nice upgraded details. Was nice to see the AC unit in a closet but it made a lot of noise and would wake you up when it turned on. In general this hotel is a place without a purpose - for its not on the beach, its not on a golf course, and it is a long ways from downtown Carlsbad. All in all we were not happy with our visit and glad we stayed only one night. The staff were very nice but we did not feel like this is a "resort". We also felt like the hotel had one single purpose and that was to extract as much money from their visitors as possible. With resort fee, parking fee, and taxes the original $249 a night room turned out to be $311. In the end we were disappointed and would not stay here again.
