Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge
Ranked #6 of 36 Hotels in Carlsbad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Decent breakfast choices, nice large room, VERY nice employees. The only reason for a 4 rating rather than a 5 is that the wireless was very slow, and tended to drop from time to time. It would also have been nice to have blackout shades on the windows. The shutters didn't keep out the light that is on all night just outside the door.

The deck overlooking the ocean was a nice place to have breakfast and relax. You are just across the street from the beach, and can walk pretty much everywhere in Carlsbad Village.

Remember that this is a Best Western near Legoland, so expect to be elbowing children out of the way at the breakfast bar.

The Best Western Plus was overall a very nice hotel. Rooms were big and clean. Bathroom was a little small. Breakfast was very good for continental. Staff was very nice and helpful. The road noise was a little loud sometimes and there could have been a few more chairs around the pool but overall a good experience.

From the look of the structure from the street, the warm, friendly and helpful staff, the clean, well manicured grounds, the location in Carlsbad - right across the street from the ocean, the well appointed rooms complete with fireplaces, nice water pressure in the shower and walking distance to shops, boutiques and restaurants, staying here was a wonderful experience. I'll be back and have already highly recomended it to friends and business colleagues.

I stayed at this Best Western recently and it was awesome! The location couldn't be better! Its literally right across the street from the beach and you can walk to all of the delicious restaurants nearby. The hotel was very nice and well kept, it looks like it was just remodeled. Their FREE breakfast is tasty and it has a sun deck where you can sit and eat and look at the ocean view. The staff was really friendly and helpful as well, especially Erik at the front desk! He told me the best places to eat around Carlsbad and he was very sincere and accommodating with everything I needed. Overall, it was a great experience at a great rate!

Room Tip: It can get noisy by the breakfast room, so if you're a late sleeper I would suggest to get a roo...

During our vacation to Southern California our original booking was not as expected. We were accommodated on a last minute reservation as we were checked into another hotel that was not desirable and Best Western bent over backwards to accommodate us last minute. Erik at the front desk was very helpful to accommodate us. He set us up in a room that was exactly as expected and did his best to meet any needs that we had. Erik went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was the best that it could be while we were there. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. The view from the deck while eating breakfast and enjoying coffee was fantastic including the occasional viewing of the dolphins. All of the staff was very courteous and very helpful. The overall facility housekeeping was above average and was very good. I tip my hat to all of the staff at the Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge and highly recommend this hotel to everyone traveling there. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to local restaurants and convenience stores. Absolutely no complaints what so ever from this customer.

Room Tip: While staying there I would highly recommend going the extra and get the suite. Very roomy and very...

We stayed in a suite (had 6 people in our party) and it worked out great. The room slept 4, we brought a cot and also rented a hide away bed and it worked wonderful. We loved the easy walk to the beach and being so close to shops/dining. It is a small hotel which was great also. Staff was VERY friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again! Great cost for what you get!
