Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge
Ranked #6 of 36 Hotels in Carlsbad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 May 2013

The hotel is located across a park and the beach. Breakfast is served on a patio facing the ocean. Although the breakfast offering is not something to rave about, it is enough to fill you up until the next meal. There is also a swimming pool in the middle of the buildings and parking is very convenient. There is a variety of restaurants near the hotel and they are within walking distance. Very nice area.

My wife and I stay here when we want to get away for a day or two. It's a short drive from San Diego, but it feels like we are in a resort far away. The hotel is across the road from the ocean and a short walk to Carlsbad village. Our deluxe room was spacious and had a fireplace and kitchenette. The king bed was super comfy. Great views of the ocean from the breakfast room or open patio. Included continental breakfast was very good with staff attending to any needs. The covered parking is also a plus. Friendly staff and clean property throughout. I accidentally left my shorts but we received a call on our way home that they could ship them back to me. That's service! We will stay here again!

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies have a view of the ocean if you step outside.

Room was nice, had 2 doubles. Nice swimming pool. Right across from the beach and near
restaurants and shopping. Breakfast room has beautiful view of the ocean and a good variety of food. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel may be a little dated but it is awesome. Convenient parking, heated pool, spa and a newly remodeled breakfast room with a view of the ocean. We had an oversized room with fireplace and kitchen that was as clean as any hotel room of any major brand. Walk across the street and you are on the beach. Restaurants galore within easy walking distance. A must stay in Calsbad.

Room Tip: Oversized with fireplace and kitchen

Very nice hotel with beach view from (community) patio sitting area. This hotel is ideally situated within walking distance to Carlsbad village, shops and restaurants. The beach is right across the street, and an easy walk. Room was clean, some have refrig and micro. Staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast choices were good (including hot breakfast items) and is served in a nice room (2nd floor) with great ocean view, or step outside and enjoy the outdoor patio. There is a pool/spa in the center of the buildings. Across the street is on outdoor reastaurant with very good fish-n-chips. Overall a very good place to stay!

Room Tip: Rooms on street side are noiser, but (some) also have a beach view from small balcony.

Stayed here in 2012 on short notice. Very clean and modern rooms. Affordable. Literally minutes away from the beach, including a view. By shops and restaurants. Staff is wonderfully nice and the room was perfect for two people. Best room, price, location you can find all at once.
