I arrived ay 9pm, and the checkin with my kids was quick.
Had one of the best late night stakes at my room. Wow, simply the best room service steak I have ever had.
Next day, the kids jumped in the pool. The pool is warmed and perfect for kids, not deep at all. They have a shuttle to take you into town near by and super close to Lego Land. Although... When we went to Lego land they have their own hotel that I might have stayed for the convenience... but this Hilton was great.
Breakfast was never an issue here. Waiters were great and I wasn't forced to get the buffet for my kids like the Universal Hilton did. Anyway... a solid Hotel.
The Beach is just down about a block away, however you will want to drive a bit further down for a perfect beach spot as the beach next to the Hilton is busy with the Winnebagos parked everywhere. Not the best beach imho. But just down the street... wow... good times.

- Nestled along the sunny Pacific Coast in Northern San Diego and only 150 steps to the surf, Cape Rey is the adventurous choice for the California traveler who seeks something different and unique. With spectacular views of picturesque South Carlsbad beaches, the resort sits atop the crest of a series of gently rolling berms - a crest we like to call the Cape! At the Cape you are just minutes from LEGOLAND(R)California and the historic Del Mar Race Track, or a short coastal drive to SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo or Safari Park, famous regional wineries, and award-winning craft breweries. For the adventurous types we outfit you for local deep-sea fishing, sailboat cruises, horseback riding, paddle boarding, snorkeling, surfing lessons, and kayak explorations. Foodies enjoy dining on-property at Chandler's, where you'll find familiar favorites prepared with a twist. For connecting rejuvenation with mind, body and soul, we offer one of the top 5 Hotel Spas in the U.S. By Travel & Escape, the Ocean Crest Spa. And with an array of excursion locales and onsite amenities, there's always something to do, see or eat at the Cape. ... more less
