I loved the garden with its Hawaiian vibe, including nice areas to sit and enjoy the fire pits, pool, jacuzzi, grills and tables with umbrellas. The tiki carvings are an especially fun touch. My studio room was great and exceeded my expectations in every way. Staff was pleasant and very helpful and the location (a stone's throw from the beach...

This place was beautiful, a little overpriced for what the room was and the weeknight we stayed but still an overall great place to stay. Was easy to walk to surrounding restaurants and shops. Hotel staff was very nice and accommodating.

I usually never write reviews, but this hotel was so hospitable to us. They upgraded our room when first coming in from a two bed in one room to a two bedroom. There's a warm pool and hot tub for the winter time. We had a blast playing water polo and playing with boogie boards on the Beach. Could not...

We came from Germany with five family members to spend some days at the beach and we experienced a very well maintained, perfectly organized resort. Todd welcomed us very friendly late at night when we had arrived, was very helpful. The rooms were very friendly decorated and clean, well equipped, mostly restored. The beach is nearby, you can take your...

We just spent 6 wonderful weeks at this fabulous resort. We are so grateful for the front desk team, especially Todd. Todd made sure that we were well cared for and accomodated all of our needs, allowing us to enjoy ourselves and relax while we were going through construction at home. Everyone from front desk to cleaning crews were friendly,...

This was by Far the best getaway I've ever taken. Todd was extremely accomodating, so professional and very friendly! He represents the Resort well! Excellent customer service and the rooms were beautiful. The neighborhood was peaceful, calm and quite scenic being directly across the street from the ocean. If you have never gone I highly recommend it to everyone! I...

My wife and I stayed for three nights in their three bedroom. The unit was very large and easily slept all eight of our family. Plenty of room for the grand children to play. It had a nice size kitchen and all the rooms were clean and well appointed. Nice large TV in the main living room. Good WiFi reception....

This is the best place to stay in Carlsbad. The Ocean Palms Beach Resort was recommended by a relative who works in the city and it does not disappoint. The grounds are incredible, well maintained and set up so well. The rooms are beautifully done and make you feel like you are in a tropical paradise. It is right across...

Lots to say about this awesome place, awesome staff, awesome location. Steps away from the beach. Perfect for a morning run, yoga or surf session. Steps away from the best restaurant in town. We had a 3 days sales meeting at this place but I will come back for vacation 100 % sure. Don't wait & book a room :)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For generations, families visiting San Diego's North County for fun and relaxation on America's greatest beaches have enjoyed staying at the Ocean Palms. Our casual Carlsbad resort is ideally located along the coast in Carlsbad Village, home to one of Southern California's best collections of shops and restaurants. The Ocean Palms offers a wide choice of Carlsbad accommodations. From comfortable budget rooms to luxury suites, 1, 2 and 3 Bedrooms, some with ocean views, every room offers a fully equipped kitchen. We have the unique ability to provide you with the exact sleeping arrangements you need. Whether it's adjoining rooms or a suite, we can get you the space you need at a rate you'll love. Enjoy a continental breakfast, with fresh fruit, fresh-baked cookies, Danishes, and fresh-brewed coffee. Enjoy the laid back atmosphere and the lush landscaping. We're pet friendly, there's free WiFi, a heated pool and Jacuzzi. We love families who can't get enough of the beach, so we provide free beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and even free surfboards. The beach is right across the street, and the charming Village of Carlsbad is just a block away. Visiting Legoland? We're only a 10 minute drive. We're also just three blocks from the Coaster railroad station, so you can ride the train and take in all the attractions in San Diego, from a Padres Game at Petco Park to a tour of the historic aircraft carrier U.S.S. Midway. Here in North County San Diego, explore wineries and microbreweries. Welcome to your beachside home away from home. Come to the Ocean Palms, where cool Pacific breezes sweep across the enchanting Village of Carlsbad. There is no better place for families to capture the magic of Southern California. ... more   less
