The Ocean Palms Beach Resort, our room, the staff, amenities, and location. The room was lovely and comfortable. The staff was always pleasant and accommodating, going out of their way to take care of anything we should need. Perfect location with a very short walk to downtown Carlsbad and the beach right out our front door. We look forward to...

One block from the beach, two blocks from the village. Beautiful resort with excellent landscaping, fire pits, lounge area, Jacuzzi, heated pool, putting green, barbecues. My kids loved it. We parked the car and didn't use it once. Great getaway from Los Angeles.

We live here in Carlsbad, but wanted a little getaway, so I decided to try out Ocean Palms! They were super friendly, accommodating, and clean! It was nice and quiet, the remodeled rooms were beautiful. Loved the kitchenette in the room and walking distance to nightlife and breakfast:)

We consider OP our little home away from home. So friendly and clean and welcoming. Hate to admit it, but sometimes I can be a princess pain in the butt but the folks here are so accommodating and warm that I've never had an issue. We are planning another visit in October but I seriously doubt we can stay away...

I'm not sure about the reviews for this place. Yes, it's a great location, beautiful trees and the nightly fire pits make for a peaceful stay. Ocean views are minimal for most rooms. The pool and hot tub were extremely dirty. Piles of sand are in the bottom and they were not vacuumed out during our six day stay. We...

Newly remodeled with all the conviences of home. Very close to beach and restaurants all within walking distances. Pool and Spa were great. It is great value for a family. Probably one of the best kept secrets in the Carlsbad Area.

We enjoyed our stay in our clean well equipped room, and appreciated the company of the friendly, attentive and courteous staff. The grounds are very lush and are set up with many places to just sit, relax, read, and swim. The location allowed us views and sunny days on the gorgeous beach, walking distance to quaint shops, excellent restaurants and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For generations, families visiting San Diego's North County for fun and relaxation on America's greatest beaches have enjoyed staying at the Ocean Palms. Our casual Carlsbad resort is ideally located along the coast in Carlsbad Village, home to one of Southern California's best collections of shops and restaurants. The Ocean Palms offers a wide choice of Carlsbad accommodations. From comfortable budget rooms to luxury suites, 1, 2 and 3 Bedrooms, some with ocean views, every room offers a fully equipped kitchen. We have the unique ability to provide you with the exact sleeping arrangements you need. Whether it's adjoining rooms or a suite, we can get you the space you need at a rate you'll love. Enjoy a continental breakfast, with fresh fruit, fresh-baked cookies, Danishes, and fresh-brewed coffee. Enjoy the laid back atmosphere and the lush landscaping. We're pet friendly, there's free WiFi, a heated pool and Jacuzzi. We love families who can't get enough of the beach, so we provide free beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and even free surfboards. The beach is right across the street, and the charming Village of Carlsbad is just a block away. Visiting Legoland? We're only a 10 minute drive. We're also just three blocks from the Coaster railroad station, so you can ride the train and take in all the attractions in San Diego, from a Padres Game at Petco Park to a tour of the historic aircraft carrier U.S.S. Midway. Here in North County San Diego, explore wineries and microbreweries. Welcome to your beachside home away from home. Come to the Ocean Palms, where cool Pacific breezes sweep across the enchanting Village of Carlsbad. There is no better place for families to capture the magic of Southern California. ... more   less
