This is our second stay at Grand Pacific Palisades. Great property, great location close to everything. Legoland next store (you can walk to the facility). Amenities are really good. Carl Strauss in on property (they offer in room delivery). Can't wait to stay there again.

Our stay was wonderful. We were really close to LEGOLAND and the pool area was very relaxing. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Very happy with our stay at Grand Pacific Palisades Resort and Hotel.

Although this resort is listed on the Hilton grand vacation website it is not a Hilton property. No luxuries at all and had to sign for pool towels and agree to pay a penalty if I did not turn them all back in. Looks more like a low budget extended stay hotel.

While in the room, did not hear any noise from other units. Loved the adult pool and activities, the fire pit and background music at the...

Overall very good resort. Excellent staff very attentive and friendly. Overall hotel is clean considering there is a good amount of kids staying there due to proximity to Legoland. The only negative was a couple of times guests below our balcony were smoking. This is not completely hotel's fault they just need to remind guest of no smoking policy on...

Loved the shuttle service. Richard was a great driver, very informative and helpful. He was new on the job but familiar with Carlsbad. Recommended some restaurants. Felt like I was riding with a friend still very prifessional.

Absolutely beautiful! The entire property is a true family-friendly resort. Rooms are spotless, everything you need is there & if something isn't, its only a simple phone call away & the staff brings it to your room. We felt "at home" with the set-up! The pool & splash pad was so relaxing & the kiddos had a blast! Legoland was...

Three strikes...you're out! I got talked into a promotion, 3 night and 4 day vacation. Vacation it was not! First, they had no rooms for our 4pm check-in time. They forgot us and didn't get us a room until 8pm. I am not sure how they count that as a day? Second, we had to go to the promotion "sell"...
