I booked this hotel due to a positive experience in the past. As I travel extensively for business, it's good to find a place where you can settle in and be happy with where you stay. Even though I have corporate preferred hotels available, I decided it was worth to pay the extra money out of my own pocket to...

This hotel has a great location, wonderful team of support, and a reliable shuttle service. We have stayed multiple times and the experience is consistent. Thank you to all that made my birthday so much fun!

Very nice and quiet across from the beach. The view is beautiful, try to get a room with "the view" and on the top floor. There is a shuttle to take you to the outlet mall which is close by. Carlsbad has a lot to offer to fill the time. Staff member are very friendly always asking how is everything...

Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach completely exceeded my expectations. From the friendly greeting with gift bags for the kids and champagne for the adults to all of the fun Memorial Day Weekend activities (movies by the pool with popcorn, bean bag tosses, horseshoes, life-size bowling), we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is excellent with the Carlsbad beaches right across...

Due to an illness in my family, I had to change my travel plans unexpectedly and cancel a 2 day reservation at this property. The front desk manager and the General Manager refused to waive the one night room cancellation charge, even though I canceled only 2 hours after the cancellation deadline! What makes this even more egregious is, I'm...

Dear Bus Traveler999, Thank you for your comments regarding your recent experience at our hotel. Please accept our apologies for the misunderstanding with your reservation. As the General Manager, I am disappointed you did not speak with me. The reservation agent was told that the cancellation was due to the illness of a business client, not a family member, so...

My wife and I booked this hotel as we are Hilton Honors members and like Garden Inns as they are not pet friendly. We paid $509.80 for two nights including the self parking fee of $12.00 per night. The first room on the second floor we were led to had some distant ocean view but we were looking at a...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your recent stay with us. We are glad you were able to enjoy some of the amenities that we offer here.
