We have stayed at this inn before. First time was OK, second time less than OK. The resort's location is definitely the best feature. Paid extra for a "premium" level room. Don't bother with this! If you think you're going to get a "premium" view think again. Our room was at the very end of the hall on the 3rd...

All around awful experience! The staff was most discourteous and unhelpful I don't even know what their point is behind the desk! We paid for an upgraded room with a balcony, that was not what we received! Things in the room did not even work properly had to constantly call maintenance and some of the things still didn't work after...

Lovely place, good customer service, friendly employees. Walking distance to the beach, several restaurants, pubs, shops. Fun town tours, would definitely come bank. Word of advise, do not go into the book store in town, horrible customer service, man there unfriendly and horribly rude.

I like Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort because you don't have to leave; everything is right there. You have the beach across the street, and food / shopping all in walking distance. Hotel has lots of activities for the family as well. Wonderful touches like complimentary coffee, newspaper, and movie rentals. Adult Jacuzzi, firepit and lawn seating all overlooking the ocean....

The staff at this hotel made my trip a wonderful experience. The friendly front desk folks got me in quickly and everyone else was focused on making my stay enjoyable. Arriving early, I took advantage of the facility while waiting for my room to be ready. A beautiful locker room to change, beach towels and a beach chair to relax...

This resort could be amazing. However, the internet service is almost non existent. They have different wifis to log into, but all of them are horrible. If you just want to send an email, then it will work. If you need to download anything, like PDFs, or do any work, then DO NOT STAY HERE. They have one elevator per...

The Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort is an experience not to be missed. First and foremost is the location in the heart of the town. You have access to restaurants and boutique shops everywhere. Many rooms have ocean views with the Pacific Ocean right across the street. The resort offers delights for beachgoers and vacationers alike. It's ideal for families and...

The room is basic but has all the necessary amenities to make your stay comfortable; however, I do have some complaints: We booked this from an owner who had a week to sell so we thought, why not? The location is great, close to the beach and in the middle of downtown, you can walk to everything. They have a...

It is right on the corner of Carlsbad Blvd. so you can't miss it. I was in town for a race and booked this through another site. I think for the amount I Paid, I was overpriced. Yes the rooms were recently redecorated but the bathroom is nothing special. Nice towels, nice comfortable bed. I was put on the first...
