The price paid for a large room so near the beach really is reasonable. This hotel is a good value. The staff is very friendly, both at the front desk and the lounge. This hotel is showing its age and wear and tear. The bathroom fixtures, fading and chipped furniture, remind the guest it's time to renovate this property. Rooms...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We chose a king room with an ocean view. Even with Route 101 between us and the ocean, the room was perfect. Nice view of the sunset just as the rain stopped. Front desk staff were efficient in checking us in. Room is very quiet. Wifi speed is excellent.

We stayed here last week for spring break along with our kids (10 and 8). The staff were great and professional. Being from out of country, anytime we had questions, they were great with answers and advice on what to do in the area. They responded quickly too to more towels or additional soap/coffee/etc and always with a smile on...

I tend not to like HGI in as a brand and usually stay at a different hotel when I'm in Carlsbad. However, this one won me over. The Pros- Literally right across the street from the pacific ocean. You get the whole SoCal experience- surfers, sunsets, etc. The staff. Very friendly and kind. Seemed genuinely interested. The Hilton Honors benefits...

Paul at the front desk was very polite and accommodating. The breakfast was a good spread and tasty. We didn't get to spend much time at the hotel we were visiting family and on our way out of town. The location is nice, away from noise.

Awesome location! We enjoyed our stay very much! A few things stand out that should be noted. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised, because the website doesn't offer much in the way of adequate photos of the rooms, or even a glimps of the lovely fireplace and cozy living room like area in the lobby area! Really nice! Beautiful pool...

Great staff, clean and comfortable rooms...We are always greeted with a smile, and the front desk personnel always goes out of their way to find the best room possible for us. This trip we had a couple of mishaps with room service, but the problems were addressed quickly. The beds are so comfortable, and the room is very quiet. it...

Very good location and beautiful views. Rooms were very outdated though and could use some serious upgrades. Breakfast was delicious and was made to order. Very strange layout of the floor I was on and it took a couple days to figure out the best route.

I recently stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach on a solo vacation. I have stayed here many times in the past and was always completely satisfied. This time, although the hotel and location were great, I found the service somewhat lacking. When I visited last summer, I was greeted as a Hilton Honors member and was offered a...
