Enjoyed are long weekend in Carlsbad! The hotel and staff was wonderful and convenient for late evening stroll on the beach which was just across the roadway. Next time we are back in town if its just the two of us we will stay there again. Close enough to town but not too close and very quiet neighborhood.

The Hilton Garden Inn at Carlsbad Beach is a lovely hotel. The rooms are beautiful and the outdoor dining area is great, especially the fireplace and comfortable seating. The front desk staff, especially Tom, is always friendly and helpful. Tom made check in a great experience. The location can't be beat. The ocean is right across the street and downtown...

The Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach is an ideal location for those wishing to stay in southern California for a lengthy period of time. The hotel is located in the southern portion of Carlsbad, close to Highway I-5 access, across a four lane road from a beach area (controlled traffic lights for easy crossing), close to several good restaurants and...

Nice hotel, great value. It a bit of a maze, but be sure to ask for a room with a view. My room overlooked a highway, but walking to the elevators I could see that many rooms offered nice views. Even a courtyard view would be nice Great staff! Very welcoming and courteous. Great value.

Located right across the street from the ocean and at a reasonable price! This combination alone makes this hotel a great value and coupled with excellent service makes it a property I would stay at again and recommend to others.

This could be an excellent hotel, but there a few minor issues that need correcting. Pros - - The front desk staff was very good (excellent local recommendations) and efficient. - LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! The location is fantastic - watch the sunset over the Pacific from across the street. - The room was very clean - excellent job by housekeeping....

Great location and accommodations. Located directly across from Pacific coast, although there is no easy access down to the sand from location of hotel. Pool and hot tub were very nice. Staff are friendly and accommodating.

The only complaint I had was my sister in room 314 had to relocate the next day (there was no room available for the same day) due to air conditioner not working. Otherwise the rooms and breakfast were excellent and beyond reasonable priced especially for what you received. The cook to order was delicious.

Everything was really nice. Shuttle to beach and internet access was great. Very friendly and helpful staff. Business services like access to computers and printing was great. "Partial ocean views" aren't necessarily worth the upgrade. Next time I'd just go with whatever room was cheapest unless I wanted full ocean view.
