Positive Reviews

Tranquil Locale with Stellar Views

A stunning venue less than three miles from the airport with plenty of activities and top level dining options. There's an adult pool (more for swimming laps) with cabanas available free of charge, a separate child's pool, as well as two Jacuzzis. Watch the sunset from the pool through the glass fencing. Gorgeous views of the Flower Fields and Pacific Ocean. Walking distance to all sorts of shopping (there's a popular outlet mall nearby), dining and entertainment as well as the beach. Enjoy a stroll along the path on grounds, work out in the gym, try out a magic show or horseshoe toss, grab a fruit/vegetable-infused water in the lobby and prepare your own grilled dinner at the barbecue pit. Excellent environmentally-conscious business practices. Karl Strauss Restaurant and Brewery is on-site. Don't forget to check out Legoland, Sea Life Aquarium, several museums and Carlsbad Village, all within a seven-minute ride from the doorstep.

Spacious, Classy Rooms

Lovely rooms and suites, some with full kitchens, provide clean and optimally comfortable accommodations. Ask for your preferred view at booking.

Excellent Staff

This team's customer service will definitely exceed your expectations. You'll receive a call to your room right after you settle in to check on your comfort. The free shuttle around town and back is a lovely convenience. Maintenance is prompt and efficient if anything is wrong, and kids are offered treats on numerous occasions as they pass the front desk.

Negative Reviews

A Little Far Out

Some found few attractions within walking distance and insisted you'd need a car to get anywhere worthwhile.

Ticket Discounts - But Not Really

Check ticket prices before purchasing the hotel's "discount tickets"; it may be "Opposite Day"Late In/Early OutCheck-in at 5:00 pm and out at 10:00 am.

Late In/Early Out

Check-in at 5:00 pm and out at 10:00 am - a bit much.
