Nice spacious rooms, nice dining restaurant with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Outside pool and across the street from the Ocean/Beach. The beach is small and very rocky. It was only nice to walk on not spend a day at the beach. 3 miles from Legoland and only minutes from restaurants, and shopping. Great location and service plus an outdoor pool...

Clean hotel with friendly staff. I arrived at night and in the morning was stunned to see that it was right across the street from the ocean/beach. Easy to get to, right off the 5. Nice little bar for a drink after work meetings.

As a Hilton Honor member I normally book my stay with Hilton and have stayed at many Garden Inn as well. I find that Hilton chain is pretty consistent with their apparent and cleanliness. Cleanliness is the most important factor for me when choosing hotel. I was very surprised and disapointed with this Hilton Garden Inn in Carlsbad, CA. This...

This is a great hotel to crash in after a long day at Legoland. The breakfast was a nice touch, you can have al la cart or the buffet. The beach was across the street and the pool was also fun to swim.

I had a wonderful stay here. Probably one of the best hotels I've stayed in a while. My fiance and I were just amazed at how large the bed was and the view was just great. I had no complaints about the food and the service. I definitely would come back here.

This Hilton garden inn is ideally located for Southern California Unfortunately we had a couple of problems. Noise is a big one hear, there are always lots of kids and I don't think the quality of construction is up to par - sound insulation seems non existent.
