Nice little hotel just across the street from the beach. Most rooms on upper floors to accommodate covered parking for one car/room. There are also 2 ground level accessible rooms one of which was mine. All rooms overlook a small courtyard with a pool and hot tub. There are also several seating areas including a second floor patio overlooking the ocean. My room was nice with a full kitchen, fold out couch and king size bed. There is some noise from outside/other rooms during the day but evenings and nights are quiet. With the exception of the power going out for a few hours the first night, my stay has been very pleasant. A transformer box was hit by an impaired driver at about midnight and PG&E had the power restored by 9AM. Great job by the PG&E crew. The hotel continued providing every service possible including flashlights and hot breakfast during the outage. Guest laundry and continental breakfast. The Armenian Cafe next door for breakfast, lunch and dinner and Harbor Fish Cafe for lunch and dinner across the street. Lots of other restaurants nearby. 10 minutes to LegoLand and 40 minutes to San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

Room Tip: Less noise away from stairways but it is quiet at night.

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
