Hard to beat this location! It is directly across the street from the beach. Even if you don't have a room with a balcony to take a peek from a side view of the beach simply walk a few feet to their deck or breakfast room, and wha-la! You can see the waves and enjoy a magnificent sunset! You really...

Stayed two nights with a friend, in town to visit the Village Faire. Great location, easy walking distance to beach (across street), Carlsbad Village and lots of restaurants. Nice little breakfast buffet with a great view of the ocean. Well maintained property and very clean, and LOVE the free covered parking! Only thing weird is the strange bathroom space, which...

Over and above their Best Westernly duties! Early check-in, late check-out, free breakfast, nice view, held onto our bags after we checked-out. These guys are the real-deal. Also, yeah, that's the Pacific Ocean across the street.

This is a great place to stay. Close to the beach and shopping. Plenty to do without even leaving. Staff is awesome. Only thing that I found wrong with this place is there is limited parking for the guests and is not very truck friendly.

We stayed here three nights. Walked everywhere restaurants,shopping and the beach. Breakfest in the morning quite generous and served until 10am. Staff always happy to hand out a water bottle after we ran on the beach. Nothing fancy but meet all our needs. If you want to lay by a pool this is NOT the hotel for you. The beach...
