Would have been better if they had a complimentary breakfast and the room service was late and our food was cold when we got it, but still a nice place to stay.The ocean view room made it worth it....

We didn't want to stay at Legoland. This was a beautiful hotel with a very nice beach away from the Lego chaos, but a short drive in. Breakfast was very good. View from our balcony was lovely. We had some wine and snacks delivered to our room by accident, hotel staff came to get the card and must have replaced...

The location is excellent, walking distance to the beach with abundant of rooms facing the ocean. I spent two nights here for a race and this was the official hotel.

Stayed here for a few days over the Christmas holidays. As a couple in our thirties, it felt like a quiet, sleepy spot best suited for an older crowd (we were there to be with family), but we enjoyed our stay. The property had a big pool, with plenty of outdoor places to lounge around, and a nice location right...

This was my third time staying at this hotel for the Carlsbad Marathon. The location is very convenient: easy drive to and from the race, with an option to take the free shuttles provided by the hotel.

This resort has the relaxing atmosphere you expect from Hilton resorts it is about 5 minutes to Carlsbad. Allowing relaxation without city distraction but close enough for easy access to shops downtown.

We enjoyed a beautiful wedding on site. We had good service, slight hiccup at check in if you are coming separate to one reservation but that was only one person out of many excellent staff. The hotel is beautiful, the price was fair once it came down after we had booked. We were treated top notch.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled along the sunny Pacific Coast in Northern San Diego and only 150 steps to the surf, Cape Rey is the adventurous choice for the California traveler who seeks something different and unique. With spectacular views of picturesque South Carlsbad beaches, the resort sits atop the crest of a series of gently rolling berms - a crest we like to call the Cape! At the Cape you are just minutes from LEGOLAND(R)California and the historic Del Mar Race Track, or a short coastal drive to SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo or Safari Park, famous regional wineries, and award-winning craft breweries. For the adventurous types we outfit you for local deep-sea fishing, sailboat cruises, horseback riding, paddle boarding, snorkeling, surfing lessons, and kayak explorations. Foodies enjoy dining on-property at Chandler's, where you'll find familiar favorites prepared with a twist. For connecting rejuvenation with mind, body and soul, we offer one of the top 5 Hotel Spas in the U.S. By Travel & Escape, the Ocean Crest Spa. And with an array of excursion locales and onsite amenities, there's always something to do, see or eat at the Cape. ... more   less
