Beware of hidden or inaccurate charges such as parking, happy hour specials, etc....Was told parking was $5/day but when the bill came it was $12/day and they wouldn't correct the error. Very disappointing stay

I really enjoyed my stay here at the Hilton Garden Inn. Tip: order ocean view, not partial (partial=pool view). The LEGOLAND family package was great, and great price, breakfast was included. Had to pay parking, but not a big deal, it was good. Ocean is was a walking distance. Save a couple of bucks and cruise around the area and... More

Excellent room on 3rd floor. Great views, great location, great hospitality. Little pricey breakfast buffet, but it was a heck of an omlet. I would definitely come back though. Clean, Clean, Clean. Don't change a thing.

Spent some leisure time in Carlsbad to take in the Pacific coast with my wife and children. Hotel staff was very accomodating and responsive to our needs of a crib and high chair. Discounted ticket purchase to the San Diego Zoo was relatively easy after an overnight computer issue was resolved. I would recommend this hotel to families who are... More

Everything about this place was awesome. Friendly staff. Location. Amenities. Hands down a great place.....except... the insane adjustable beds. Neither my wife or I was able to get comfortable. We were there 3 nights and did not get a good nights sleep. Otherwise, we will be back.

A typical Garden Inn style Hilton with the mix of services we now know to expect. This particular site is positioned right by the beach and therefore is ideally placed to entertain. It has in recent times, expanded its venue promotion and therefore is sometimes very busy but all in all, still provides a reasonable level of accommodation.

I love Hilton Hotels in general, but there is something very sweet about the Garden Inn's. I've always loved staying in them. In particular, this one is in such a beautiful spot, just down the road from Carlsbad Village, and really so lovely. I requested a top floor room with an ocean view and it was so worth it. Hotel...
