Ocean Palms Hotel property is OUTSTANDING in every way possible. My stay was relaxing and the cost of the room was well below other hotel properties in the area. Watching and listening to the sounds of the ocean each morning, was worth the cost of entry.

We have always enjoyed Carlsbad for the summer and had booked a family vacation for various members of the family to come together this year. This resort is the absolute perfect spot for that. The premises were always well kept and swimming pool and hot tub were very relaxing. They change colors at night which is kind of cool. The...

We had a fantastic stay at Ocean Palms Beach Resort recently! The resort is small, but very well maintained, with 60-second beach access and helpful, friendly staff. If you have never been to Carlsbad (we hadn't), you are in for a treat. Carlsbad Village is a beach town, with small resorts and condos and beach houses on the water, and...

There is a laundry room on the grounds. We met people who have returned year after year. We had a one bedroom apartment and it worked...

We found this resort online, and I'm so glad we did. We took my daughter here for her 16th birthday and the resort was perfect. The attention to detail is great. The owners did a beautiful job remodeling the place and the decor and floor plans were very nice! The landscaping is beautiful. The girls spent the afternoon across the...

Location can't be beat. I was solo on this trip but I wouldn't hesitate to being my boys back with me. LOVE that they have all the beach gear to borrow. Fantastic, Kitchen areas are a great way to save a little money but the village is so close you can go out all you want.

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
