Room was very nice, service from the staff was excellent. Liked the new coffee machine in the office. We had not been there since 2014, so the rooms looked different from the last time we stayed. Like that they accept pets, we love bringing our puppy since she loves being there and we enjoy our dog so much.

This resort was great. Felt like i was in Hawaii. Used the work out room and it was well but was very hot. The room was very clean and fresh towels were delivered daily. We took our dog and had no problems.

I have stayed at the Ocean Palms three times now and I always enjoy my stay. Two of my stays there were with grandkids and one with my husband...all fun! The rooms are clean and comfortable, with full kitchens! The two things I appreciate most is the cleanliness and the friendly people! The service is amazing!

We absolutely loved this place. Nice pool area with fire pits and grass, lots of restaurants and shopping just a block or two away, & free beach chair& boogie board rental. The breakfast consisted of bagels, juice,& fruit. Small area to grab your breakfast but plenty of tables outside to enjoy.

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
