We were at the Carlsbad Inn to present a workshop, so at first we were a little thrown off by beach resort spring break feel of it, but it is a very nice place. The rooms are attractive and comfortable, with some sweet touches (such as a towel folded and arranged to look like a stingray on the bed). The...

A pretty building in the middle of the town located next to the sea in Carlsbad centre. Next to the hotel you will find all that you are looking for Restaurants, Cafees', Supermarket, Library and of course the sea. We spent almost a week here and hardly used the car which can be tucked away in the underground parking of...

The Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort is immaculate. Rarely have I seen a property so well maintained. Even the grills which are available for barbecues are spotless! (That's REALLY hard to do!) So perfectly groomed, the grounds and lawn look like someone runs around with scissors cutting them into shape. The location is also outstanding. Smack in the center of quaint...

My family has stayed at this resort a few times. They've remodeled the hotel section and it looks great. The beach is right down the stairs and what a way to start and/or end the day with a walk along the beach. The staff is always courteous, professional and helpful. I recommended it to my family and they loved it....

This is a lovely hotel right in the heart of Carlsbad Village. The property is immaculate- grounds are beautiful with a lovely grassy courtyard facing the ocean (down two flights of stairs). Our room was spacious, with a nice kitchenette. The bathroom was small, but adequate. The shower/tub enclosure even had a retractable clothes line for drying swimsuits. All the...
