“Great location! Great staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

Great location! Just in front of the beach. Balcony has partial view and it is in a quite road. Front rooms doesn't have a see view but are also ok. Queen bed could be biger once the room is big! Shower has not too much space . Bathroom could be biger.Nice view from the see from the desk above pool mlevel. Great staff! Nice smille in all faces all day long, starting from the front desk/reception. Congrats! Nice hotel for the price with fantastic location...

Stayed for 5 nights. The Carlsbad beach is just across the street, very handy. We walked the beach and swam in the ocean often. Also it was within walking distant to the Coaster Train Station which was nice for traveling to San Diego.
The people that worked at the lodge were outstanding. They were very polite and helpful during our stay. Rooms were nice. The free breakfasts were very good. The weather was perfect.
The only concern would be for anyone that has difficulty with stairs. The do have a elevator but you still need to go half a story of stairs for breakfast and the viewing deck of the ocean and sunsets.
Will definitely stay there on our next visit.

Room Tip: You need to decide if you want a pool view or an ocean view.

I stayed at the Carlsbad Best Western from 9/9/13 – 9/11/13. It was a chance for me to get away from it all, for a personal retreat. I am glad, that I went to this hotel. The location was excellent; it is across the street from the beach. The continental breakfasts were delicious and very filling.

The hotel staff were all very friendly and knew the area well. Erik at the front desk made helped make my stay at the hotel even more enjoyable. He not only knew the restaurants in the area, he also was able to tell me what the daily specials were at the various restaurants in the area, that were within easy walking distance of the hotel (not an easy task, as I was not craving sea food).

The housekeepers kept the room very tidy. They also guided me to the ice machine, when I was looking for ice the first time.

The other highlight of my trip was the second floor sun deck. It overlooks the ocean, and is perfect to watch the sun go down. However, I did not take advantage of it, I appreciated the fact as well, that the hotel offered beach towels.

I do plan to return to this hotel in the future, it was an awesome experience.
The only downside and it was out of the hotels control, was there were some unauthorized fireworks at the beach at night. However, that was on the beach across the street.

The other real benefit for me the hotel is close to public transportation, in that I do not drive.

Room Tip: Was on the third floor with a balcony and it was nice and quiet.

My family and I took a close to home vacation and stayed at the beach in Carlsbad. The hotel was clean and the location can't be beat. It's close to the beach and there are plenty of eating establishments within walking distance.

As i said in the earlier part of this survey, I think that the management of this hotel can teach B/W Hacienda Hotel in San Diego a few lessons in 'public relations'. We were pleased with the staff at the B/W Carlsbad.
