Just hotel and the beach.

Pros: Sound of the waves. Big comfortable rooms. The view spots.
Cons: Better coffee.
Location: If you want to get into tourist mode it's easily accessible about a block away.
This is a beautiful setting with a hotel configured so that the crowded, tourist town of Carlsbad is shut out and it's just you in a comfy setting and the ocean. The hotel makes the most of the beach and ocean by providing several spots a to just sit and watch. Down a flight or two of stairs and your in the sand.

Oceanside Experience...Paradise on Earth!

Pros: proximity to beach and walking in Carlsbad huge comfy bed continental breakfast food provided with lots of choices wet bar, coffee maker and fridge in
Cons: open shower is cold, a door on the shower would be nice to keep the steam in also, it took quite awhile for the shower water to warm up but once it di
Location: witchery wine bar- 1 block away barrel republic- few blocks away (beer pouring/tasting) Cicciotti's Italian restaurant: very tasty! few blocks away
Absolutely love this hotel. We stayed here one other time. We pick the rooms that over look the pool but more importantly the ocean! We watched surfers and saw a ton of dolphins! We keep the window cracked to hear the waves crashing all night! The bed is big and comfy. The room is spacious. There is a fridge and a wet bar. The bathroom is updated. The only complaint is the open shower. it is a bit chilly in the spacious shower. If you were being drenched in water that would be nice but it is a typical shower head in a huge shower room which makes it cold! Keeping the bathroom door shut helped a bit. We do not do the cleaning service, so on day 1 they left a basket at our door with towels and all the other potential needed things (coffee, lotions, shampoo etc). Love the brand of lotion/shampoo they offer. The only reason I marked them lower in cleanliness is that i did yoga and could see things from a different angle...it was noted the rungs on the desk and chairs were very dusty and the dust around the edges of the room/bed frame was noted (these are things i did not notice until yoga) otherwise room appears clean, bathroom is clean and well maintained. Just surprised of the things i did notice because overall the whole property is well maintained and attention to detail to keep appearances noted. Breakfast: coffer/tea/hot cocoa, options for oatmeal, different yogurt types (normal and greek), fruit, juices, pastries, toast, choice of 3 cereals

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, huge bathroom
We had a gorgeous ocean view. The room was spotless and huge. The hotel was within walking distance to many great restaurants. Parking was easy and free and it was easy to drive into San Diego from here.

Beautiful hotel right on the beach

The view of the ocean was amazing and the rooms are so spacious and gorgeous. Ask for an oceanfront room and you'll be blown away. Will definitely be back next year.
