We love Carlsbad and have stayed many places, but none compare with the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the resort provides everything you could possibly need for a perfect beach day, including towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys, etc. We stayed in a one bedroom suite that had a fully stocked kitchen,...

We've stayed at many different resorts, but the Carlsbad Inn is our family favorite. The beach access and walkability to restaurants means you don't have to get back in your car once you arrive. Combine that with relaxing by the pool, or lunching on the lawn, and there is nothing more relaxing that a week at the Carlsbad Inn. We...

Everything about this hotel was great, except for the initial check-in with Alexia(?) not sure of her spelling. She was not friendly and didn't provide any information like the other staff did. Cynthia was outstanding!
