We stayed here for one night, Dec 22, 2016, $192.00. The room had a refrigerator which is always a bonus. It was a little noisy though; you could easily hear the people next to you and above you. But the location is right in the heart of the restaurants and shopping... The room was paid for in August, through Booking.com,...

You are 'in the town', a block from the beach, and mere minutes of walking to places for shopping, dining and fun in the sun. Beach chairs are waiting in your room as are towels. The staff we encountered was into the 'glad you're here, now let's enjoy your stay' attitude. It's a little 'older' but hardly old and tired....

Great little property with hotel and timeshare rooms available. We stayed in a 1 bedroom timeshare room that had been upgraded. One of the best locations in Carlsbad because it is in town, yet on the Oceanside of the highway. Walk to the beach and jump in the jacuzzi on your way back to your room.

Usually when we go to San Diego we stay down in the PB area in a condo but this time we were only staying for five days and wanted to be near our cousins in Carlsbad. Since we could not find a reasonably priced condo on the beach in Carlsbad we decided to save money and stay at a hotel...

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We do have resort condominiums with full kitchens, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave, but it is different than our hotel rooms. We value you as a guest and would like to provide another opportunity to be of service to you. Thanks again for your review.

The hotel is in a beautiful location right by the beach with a fantastic view of the sea from our balcony. The kids enjoyed playing in the pool. We also had fun at the bingo activity and there are games and bikes to borrow. However, downsides included the room not being very clean - housekeeping was fine but details like...

Since leaving California some years ago to live in Georgia, every few years I return to California to. reconnect with friends. I’m not the type to impose on my friends by sleeping on their couch so always prefer to stay elsewhere. The Carlsbad Inn has always felt like a home away from home while providing the best accommodations available for...

What an awesome venue for an event! I loved the location being downtown having the balcony overlooking the main strip. The tall ceilings really made the room feel spacious and open. Thanks to Lisa Slone for coordinating a great event and to Kelly Reid for helping make all the details come together!

This is an old Inn, but very nice renovations. Our one bedroom was more than adequate. We had a nice view of ocean from our balcony and was close enough to hear the waves. Beach is short walk away, however to get there requires steep stairway or long ramp without hand rails. Difficult for some of us. Cannot skip the...

We live in Carlsbad and have always thought it would be fun to stay at the Carlsbad Inn. When our grown children and families came to town for a pre-holiday celebration, we thought it was the perfect opportunity. What a great decision that was! We loved it there! The rooms were very comfy and well stocked, the grounds were spacious...

Carlsbad Inn is therapy for us. The grounds are gorgeous, the location is unbelievable, and the team that works there are the best. If you are planning a vacation in Southern California there is no better resort. Try it once, and you will be back again.
