“Beautiful Location”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

This Best Western is directly across the street from the beautiful ocean and walking paths in Carlsbad, Ca. The room was immaculate and the staff very friendly and professional. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who may be visiting in the area.

Stayed at this hotel for two weeks in September. The second week my wife joined me. The main benefit of this hotel is the view and location near the ocean. More than half the rooms have a view of the ocean from room, either balcony or large windows. Rooms are nothing special, minimal furnishings, but for an older hotel it is very well maintained. Bathrooms are small. Windows open on both ends of room for good ventilation and to hear the ocean. Air conditioners are loud in some of the rooms but you rarely need to use them. Comfortable beds. They put a lot of money into updating the front of the hotel that faces the ocean. Decent breakfast with great view from second story lounge or patio. Pool and hot tub are nice but a little small and surrounded glass walls and in full view of balconies. Many nice restaurants and shops a short walking distance from hotel. To update the rooms they should update the artwork and add a little furniture to fill king rooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

My husband took me to Carlsbad, CA for my 50th Bday and I chose this place because of the beach view. It was perfect. Right across the street from the ocean, within walking distance to Carlsbad Village. Room was clean and comfortable and a reasonable price. We had the best time.

this is my new favorite Best Western. Carlsbad has a very special ambiance. It is not a surfer beach due to low breakers. Walkways for pedestrians only. This hotel is across the street from the beach. Friendly staff. Love it!

The hotel is right across a main road from the ocean. There is a walking path on the bluff and one down on the beach. The hotel is also walking distance from many shops and restaurants. Try the Coyote Grill for great food and live music. The breakfast room here is nicely arranged and spacious. You can sit inside or outside and have a great view of the beach and ocean.

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.
