This place was a perfect location with wonderful staff Can’t wait to return again We stayed in the king suite and it was much bigger than we thought it would be

The housekeeping were fast and efficient The front desk were helpful and knowledgeable on any questions we had We will definitely return again next summer!! Perfect place for family and walking distance to the beach

Johanna Stecklein

This was the best place to stay!!!! Truly the highlight of our trip, we loved the cleanliness of the rooms, the rooms were big and also had a balcony with Ocean views! The staff was 5 star and told us to just walk like 3 blocks down and we were literally in the middle of downtown

perfect location! We woke up early and walked across the street to the public beach and it was so clean

Bryan Dodds

Fantastic location Across the street from the Frazee State Beach, right next to the village and great restaurants Parking was conveniently right below our room

The ladies at the front desk were terrific The breakfast was good and the view from the breakfast bar was awesome Only negatives were that there wasn’t any room service and rooms are a bit dated but that’s it Definitely one of the best value hotels in Carlsbad

Curtis Olsen

Overall we had a hreat experience here The room was clean with fresh linens (though the cabinet holding the mini fridge was damaged resulting in some sharp edges we had to watch the kids around

) The breakfast was good They had some hot options They kept the amount out smaller than other places we have stayed at This resulted in getting hotter food, but sometimes having to wait a while for them to refill a pan The front desk was friendly Location fairly convenient to things we needed, but not right by anything Our main issue this visit is that we were to there would be 1 housekeeping during our 5 night stay I scheduled this upon check-in and it did not happen I then requested it for the following day and it did not happen all I ended up getting them to do for us, over the 5 nights, is empty the trash once and get us some clean towels

Eric Valadez

I used to stay here all the time before the pandemic to visit family and friends Ignore the negative reviews Reading reviews people are acting as if service went down hill and due to the no turn down service unless 4 day stay you would run out of supplies and also that the free breakfast went downhill

Because of this I went to the hotel with extra toilet paper, trash bags, tissues and snacks I was there for 3 nights and did not need any of this Staff was friendly and attentive I had enough supplies that I did not need to request more and if I did the staff would provide it The hot breakfast was from 7-10 weekends and once went to 10:30 Breakfast during the week was 6-9 When something ran out it was replaced as fast as humanely possible while having to be cooked There was eggs, sausage, waffles, cereals, oatmeal, fruit, coffee, tea, juice, water, bagels, and various breads Room was clean I was worried the place went downhill, but it was just the same as it’s always been Will be staying again

Gordon Cohen

The hotel facility was lovely and room was huge Front desk was very courteous and helpful, except for the limitations shown below However, we could not get any housekeeping for our 4-day stay and had to ask daily for new linen

Garbage and old linen pickup had to be left outside the room in the hall Breakfast was substandard relative to Fairfield Inns

Victoria Berry

Very beautiful designed hotel with a prefect view of the oceanThe valet and check-in staff were very friendlyIt is very expensive and they definitely need to work on somethings to make the experience worth the money

A couple of the staff who work at the pool and bar were extremely rude and unwelcoming, just this will make me not want to go backI booked a daybed at the pool and thank goodness because the pool was over packed and it seemed like non hotel guest came and meet their friends Kids everywhere which definitely took away from the relaxing part and made it hard to get into their very tiny poolThe daybed was $200 and it came with warm water nothing to keep it cold The beds where suppose to have a sever but we got the least attention, the people just hanging out at the pool where served more So I don’t think I got me money’s worth other than having a spot to sit Lunch isn’t served till 12 and by that time everyone at the pool was ordering food moving the time to 11 would help the staff not be so overwhelmedThe restaurant took a really long time to get drinks out and the steak had a lot of fat on it but the pork belly was really goodI was there celebrating my birthday and the staff asked a couple time but didn’t do anything for it or at the restaurant which was a little weirdIt was a great one time experience but I don’t think we will go back

Adam C

Fantastic hotel Excellent staff, well-appointed rooms, large balconies, nice pool area Very much enjoyed our visit

Best views are the rooms facing the west (ocean) from the second or higher floor South rooms will face condos and north facing rooms will view the ocean, the nearly beach, and segments of the 101 Valet only Some restaurants are within walkable distance, but not much You will need water shoes for the beach (rocks)

T S

Beautiful location and modern design, we enjoyed our stay here A+ attentive staff that was friendly, expedient and on-brandThe bar at sunset is not to be missed & features a well trained team with a craft forward skill set

Of note: as others have said, if you are not a fan of the restaurant, you’ll be challenged with room service (it’s an extension of the chef’s influence)

Lissa Chloe

I booked a double with a view, which I did not receive I attempted to fix this but there were no staff at the front desk the two times I went up there When I did notify the staff twice that my room was noisy being on the first floor, both replies were empty responses, “I’m sorry

” I’m shy and non-confrontational but I’m also alone and hearing voices and banging outside my hotel door while I’m in the shower with the bathroom door closed It was concerning to me since I’m not familiar with the area Anyway, staff were not very approachable, reassuring, or solution-focusedAlso, my room was facing a caution taped pool that was closed for my stay (not mentioned in booking) And, breakfast was soggy unattractive meats and breadsThe plus side was being in a walkable area and feet-away from the beach

Stanley Hopf

Simple check in great staff everything is in walking distance I’m in a wheelchair so really close just across the street from beach and there is a light so crossing is safe the property is built 1980s rooms seem to have been up dated in last couple years I guess you could fine little tiny things a piece of molding that should chalked or a nick on a door if your looking for perfect but really I have stayed in five star resorts with more issue and staff you don’t need to ask they come to you making sure you don’t need anything very pleasant the bell hop came looking for me in the parking garage to be sure I was okay and wasn’t lost my wife told him I was fine and I would be up in a minute he still came down to check maintenance stopped me in the hall to see if I need a ramp or a shower chair as I was not in a handicapped accessible room as one was not available when book could use grab bars in shower and toilet area as even if your just older or have weak knees it would help but able to manage in my condition overall great place the serve breakfast typical stuff but perfect if you don’t want to rush out somewhere and there is a restaurant connected to hotel haven’t but is packed every night indoor out door setting great to watch the sunset prices compatable to the area looked like it gets as much local business as it does from hotel maybe more recommend if your looking for a place in Carlsbad great choice secured under ground parking full drop down gate no chance of intruders another plus thank for reading but just couldn’t say enough

Very nice accommodations Excellent guest services Nice clean rooms

Fun pool for the kiddos and jacuzzi for adults The windmill food hall was topnotch not a bad thing there Everything was so delicious! Perfect location for great food and beach access minutes awayThe premium outlets across the street were perfect for some retail therapy too

Chris Weiner

Far and away the best experience I’ve had staying at a Carlsbad hotel The service was great, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the pool is heated perfectly, and the location is fantastic It’s right next to all the great Carlsbad attractions like Legoland, the beach is close by, and same with the village, but also plenty of shopping and great restaurants to choose from all within walking distance

I had to make last minute reservations, which they were able to help me out with I also had to extend my stay at the last minute and they were able to get it doneAll and all, it was a great experience I’d highly recommend this hotel

Joe Bodick

This unique hotel was a great respite from our busy Legoland trips!The rooms were very clean and comfortableThe pool was great for the kidsLisa and Chad were so helpful and nice!The food hall had a lot of choices, which was great for our picky little eaters

Outlet mall across the street was convenient, too

Kate Carlson

Lovely resort We really enjoyed the pool The family area spa is a little cooler than I would like as an adult, but it was lovely for the kids to be able to enjoy it (and there is an adult pool/spa available area as well)

The room/suite in Villa D was perfect for our family of 4, with a very spacious kitchen and living area and a wonderfully comfortable King sized bed in a separate bedroom Easy walk to Legoland and beautiful view over the flower fields and of the ocean The guest policies were very accommodating, including allowing us to stay and use the pool and resort amenities after checkout, and parking was valid till the end of day as well We’d definitely like to stay here again

Melissa Forsberg

Great place to stay for family The rooms are large and clean It has a regular size kitchen if you want to make your own meals with all the utensils you’ll need

There’s also grills available on the grounds Staff was friendly and welcoming There’s separate pool areas where kids can play and swim Another for adults to relax and it has beautiful surroundings We would definitely go back again

Marco Ortiz

Really great family hotel! This place is great for families, the full kitchen makes everything much easier if you are traveling with kids We were able to store all the essentials for our 3, and 1 year old The room was extremely clean and they even provided a pack n play for our 1 year old

The furniture is a bit outdated but is in really great condition Overall the customer service was great but can improve in some aspects I would definitely stay here again We were able to walk to Legoland, it took us about 8 minutes There is no bell service or Valet, so it’s a bit of a bummer There are 2 hotels in the same building The desk for this one is on the right when you walk in and the Hilton on the left The bar was also very convenient, and Karl Strauss is also on the property We will definitely stay here again

Sebastian Caballaro

The hotel is nice and super clean There’s no breakfast included with any room but there’s a Starbucks in the hotel which is really convenientParking is free and generally no issues to find a spot

The pool is nice and clean, 5ft max depthWiFi is free for basic and there’s an available option for paid premiumThe rooms are quiet and the mattresses are the most comfortable mattress we had during our tripThe cable options are pretty basic and much more dated than what you’d find at a Springhill Suites for instance

krizhia roxas

We’ve been here for an hour now Once we opened the room, it smells like cigarette I didn’t complain and just opened the sliding doors and let the air circulate

Now, I’ve noticed there’s a used wingstop cup under the table Called front desk Frontdesk said the room has been cleaned and housekeeping probably just didn’t see the cup Aren’t they supposed to clean the WHOLE ROOM especially since we’re living in a pandemic? The front desk didn’t offer a resolution, probably cause I didn’t ask for a room change Or maybe I should really complain before we get better service? Not gonna stay here again after this

Dwight Osteen

They don’t clean the rooms They tell you that if you ask for it to happen every day they will do it I was there 4 nights, requested fresh towels and cleaning every night

They never came Also upon my arrival there was a dirty wash cloth in the middle of the room floor Staff was nice enough even if they didn’t do what they said

Mountain View

The Lakehouse has always been my favorite place, with its picture-perfect Mountain and Lake San Marcos LSM Marina is a must to enjoy water sports or simply cruise and admire the surroundings I am very happy with the pontoon boat that I rented

I must say that I’ve seen them a lot cleaner back in 2014-2016 and they seem to be the same boats this 2022 which explains why there are stains all around or weather damages on the leather seats, which are understandable when used over the years No complaints on the same awesome experience Just a suggestion if the management wants to improve by sanitizing better, change upholstery or deep-clean everything The staff who answered my call like Liam and the guys assisting at the dock are all very welcoming I’ll still give it a 5⭐️ And we’ll definitely be back

Jack Bowman

My wife and I came here on our honeymoon We had an absolute blast This place was worth every penny we spent on it

It’s up-to-date, very clean, the staff are incredibly friendly, and the amenities kept us very busyFor starters, they have several fire pits around the pool area (and a fantastic hot tub), which they give you smores to roast over It’s very cute They also give you a free bucket of balls for their driving range The poolside bar wasn’t incredibly well stocked for making custom requests, but their house drinks were just fine for us and the bartender was very nice and made us laughWe are already planning to come here again next time we decide to visit San Marcos

Max Delbecq

Pros: nice little lake with small, retirement community/golf vibe Nice boats – the small pontoon boat was really fun for our family of 3 for an afternoon picnic on the water Could have easily fit 6-7 people comfortably

Liked being able to book in advance via the websiteCons: employees, which are just a bunch of youngsters, were a little disorganized Price is high for a couple hours on a lake ($100/hour for the small pontoon boat + tax)

My son had a soccer tournament in Oceanside this past weekend and when I went to book unfortunately everything close was booked or overpriced We decided on this Hotel due to short distance from event All I can say is wow ! This small hotel is beautiful, spotless and customer service is above and beyond

It has a warm and cozy feel but yet the right amount of luxury I saw several guests with dogs and families with small children They have a nice pool and hot tub with towels provided 5-9 pm M-S happy hour at their bar with 2$ cocktails & beer I have to mention a gentleman that was there until late when we checked in and was also there first thing in the morning This guy was unbelievable! From working at the desk, to cleaning , running food out and much more Jack of all trades but with an amazing attitude and smile for someone who’s obviously overworked I believe his name was Mr Holmes and definitely deserves props He made a world of difference It did seem they were a bit short staffed during the happy hour and breakfast but you’d never notice due to the teamwork and positive staff Best complimentary breakfast I’ve had at any small hotel Chef preparing omelettes and small waffles and self serve bacon , sausage and eggs Cereal bowls , milk , coffee and muffins 24hr free hot coffee in lobby Super nice fitness room and small laundry Amazing rooms in pristine condition with super comfortable bedding , ice cold air , microwave and fridge Large restroom with oversized round tub perfect for a relaxing bubble bath The patio was decorated beautifully with lights , fire pits and water features Very tasteful modern decoration all throughout We were super tired after long day in the sun at my sons tournament and it was perfect to unwind in the beautiful outdoor setting Very quiet place I highly recommend this hotel and I’m looking forward to coming back with my family soon Thank you for making our stay so pleasant at such an affordable price and to all the employees for being so hospitable though working hard

Kelsey Edwards

Great service! Everyone at the front desk was lovely – especially Sean The lobby was clean and inviting, the rooms were comfortable and fresh smelling (and I was happy they came equipped with a microwave and fridge), and the hot tub was the perfect temperature Had a lovely stay and would definitely return

The only slightly annoying thing was how loud the doors were when they shut, I happened to have pretty active neighbors and every time they opened/closed that door in the late evening it woke me out of my sleep

Luba K

Amazing brand new hotel!! Everything is super clean and still has a new furniture smell Beds & pillows are very comfortable Room was very spacious with a large bathroom, microwave & mini fridge

Location is great too- about 30 min out from the beach, Target right around the corner, and coffee and restaurants near by The breakfast was great– omlettes made to order and decent selection of breakfast items Patio had plenty of seating & was pretty cozy Pricing was very competitive compared to other lower grade hotels in the area Would definitely be staying here again on out next trip

We absolutely LOVED our stay at the Mission Pacific! My husband, myself, and our 10-month-old son stayed 3 nights here and had the best time Cindy at the front desk was amazing and made sure we had a mini-fridge and rib for the baby She also upgraded our room since they were not able to accommodate us for a pool cabana due to an event, and our room was amazing with ocean views a sitting area, and a large bath! Thanks, Cindy! The pool staff was so attentive and made sure we had fresh towels and drinks throughout the day

We also enjoyed the pool at the sister property, the sea bird which was amazing We ate at Valle for dinner and the food was great and the service was Michelin level We are New Yorkers and have traveled all over the world and the service was top-notch, we will definitely be back!

Terrance Yu

Excellent hard product and superb soft service Valet is easy and efficient; a quick text and the car is in the turnaround I’m no alkaline water connoisseur but I love the recyclable water bottle concept

The front desk is super responsive and helped us with breakfast reservations The beach rambler is amazing; free umbrella and chairs can be set up right on the beach I’m definitely going to miss that service next time we go to the beach on our own The hotel is right in front of the Amtrak line but you can barely hear any noise when the window is closed I’m not sure if I really felt the hot and cold temperatures of the 8 POD bed but it is very comfortable The ocean view studio is well designed with the sliding door and the deep water tub We’re already talking about coming back again The location is just so amazing to be steps away from the beach Oceanside may not be on everyone’s latest tourist destination radar but we can’t recommend this resort enough

Vanessa L

I had such a great stay here!Pros:Hotel room – I was upgraded to an ocean view room (due to status) and it was literally right in front of the ocean with unobstructed views The room was spacious, but I was also alone so not sure if I would feel the same with 2 people Bed was super comfy and robes/slippers were great

Hotel amenities – the rooftop pool area was exactly my viberarely any children, views of the ocean and drink service I also did rooftop yoga that was included, which was icing on top Having access to Seabird was great because on Sunday they had a free spa day so I was able to use the sauna and other facilitiesRestaurants – there were lots of options between both properties that I never needed to go elsewhereSurrounding area – I feel like I didn’t see many reviews about the beach area It’s a very lively beach area across the streetfood vendors, surfers, fishers, etc doesn’t die down until around 8pmCons:-Facing the beach also meant facing the busy street, so just be aware that it will be noisy until about 8ish every evening-The restaurant menus aren’t that robust Meaning each menu is about 1 page long, so don’t expect a steakhouse or anything- Noise levels were great in my room until the last night when a huge family checked in and they had multiple roomsslamming doors and running the halls Not the hotels fault, but just something to note

Paul Cole

We just had yet another awesome stay at this wonderful property With 5 of us travelling (my wife and 3 children) we need a lot of room so we booked a two bedroom suite and it was perfect, with more than enough room and all the amenities you could want The staff was super friendly and professional and we really felt at home

A special shout out to the lady that runs the activity center and leads the morning hikes She was the greatest! My family really enjoyed some of the art activities that she offered and I was really impressed by her knowledge of the local flora and fauna as she pointed out various interesting bits of information as she led the morning nature hikes The food was great both at the Cove bar and when the wife and I wanted something a little more upscale the Restaurant at the Westin (which was only a two minute walk from our room) was fantastic I’d just like to thank the staff for making our stay so special and in particular Ms Megan Connor the GM who makes it all happen

James Deguzman

The rooms are nice and spacious The staff is what makes this place great The front desk personnel were nice and courteous and very accommodating

Our room was super clean by housekeeping upon arrival I also noticed the cleaning staff clean the bbq grills on a regular basis Events staff and employees around the pool area were all super friendly and helpful All the staff make this place an amazing place to stay

BB rEflecTion

Beautiful area, direct access to Lego land Easy trail to walk on Good pool side services

One of TV in our bedroom is broken on sound, but everything else in the room is fine There’s some construction going on but not bad on noise level ( To be fair, the screaming kids at the pool is the responsibility of the parents) This is one of good HGVC properties that actually care about the owners, compared to some others I had been Keep it up and we’ll be back!

Location is great and the amenities are nice, the room layout is really well designed The pool is a great place to hang out, and being right across the street from the beach you can easily go back and forth Underground parking on site was convenient

I think the coolest part was the patio on the seventh floor that is a great place to watch the sunset

We are having a wonderful family vacation here, staying 5 nights! The room is fantastic, 2 bed, 2 bath with ocean view! At an affordable price Minus 1 star because checkin is at 3pm, but we had to wait in the lobby for 15 hrs with 2 anxious kiddos, bc I guess our room wasn’t ready

Met some other guests who were also delayed But once we got in, it’s been great! They don’t tidy rooms, or replenish stuff, but I will ask for a couple shampoos tomorrow and see how it goes! Also, The pool is nice! Overall, can’t beat this room and location

Nathan Mackintosh

Very very nice rooms, basically a small apartment They have a trash service sorta, you go into this room and put your trash then the trash guy takes it The nicer rooms have kitchens and 2 bed and 2 bath

Service is great and they have 2 level parking underground only issue is that there are 2 halves of building and somtimes you have to remember which wing your room is in They have a VERY nice pool and hot tub and a gathering room (ping pong and Tv) They have conference centers and it’s pretty nice

The bathrooms were nice and the hospitality was very pleasant Our room had a huge balcony, the view was the free way but it was still okay other than the massive amount of spider webs everywhere The room had a weird smell but that is common when you near areas with water

We stayed here because they said they had cribs for babies which ended up just being a playpen The complimentary breakfast was the best part, fresh omelets, waffle, bacon, and of course a the standard items Sound travels through the walls and room very easily but overall id stay here again

We must have hit a bad night

our stay was not great We got a suite to accommodate our family Upon arrival at around 7pm, we got into our room to find zero toilet paper [yep, 2 empty toilet paper holders with no extra rolls], an empty kleenex box, and a very musty smell There was no TV remote, no blanket for the fold out bed, and only 2 towelsfor a suite The front desk man was apologetic and got the things that were missing But if they knew we were coming, shouldn’t that all have been checked beforehand? Also, the bathroom was very dirty, and it was gross We have 3 girls, so I understand it’s hard to clean up hair But there was so much hair on the floor and in the tub, and it was nasty I will post pics to show We paid over $200 for this room, and we’ve stayed in much nicer for much less The next night we stayed in a different hotel for cheaper and it was so much better and cleaner The 2 good things were the nice front desk clerk and the sheets were soft

Cynthia Picciano

For the money, this was an excellent hotel The staff was ultra friendly, helpful and responsive A special shout out for the wonderful lady who furnished the hot breakfast in the mornings

She was so attentive, warm and friendly! Most we’ve ever experienced! The rooms were spacious and clean We had a total of 5 rooms across our large party Some of the rooms were better (more updated) than others, but everyone said they would rate this hotel at least a 4 Gave them a 5 because of the excellent staff With a little more updating to such things as carpets and blinds, this hotel would definitely be first class

Overall it was an okay hotel Very quiet and nice location Unfortunately I did have some issues

I checked in after a long day and my room had blood stained sheets on the bed That’s a big no-no for me or anyone I would imagine I did call and get them replaced Bathroom was a bit dirty, I’ve been in worse and I was too tired to deal with it I do wish they had complimentary breakfast though They do make you buy it if you want it There is an IHOP down the street so I just went there It does have on site laundry so that’s nice An okay stay Could’ve been better

Yul Gash

Service was great, but breakfast not included We stayed on second floor Room #206 and window did not have security stopper (opened all the way), AC worked unproperly (would not stop at certain temperature ) so instead we preferred opening windows That specific window is facing pool area and in this case might be attractive to climb on for small children or pets

Not here to complain but to suggest to be cautious

Tiara Jay

Nice hotel, I got at a discounted price because I was with a group Everything was great until I came back to my room to find BED BUGS not one but a few A lady came in and confirmed that they were in fact bed bugs

After insinuating if the bed bugs might have been mine The hotel switched my room, in the moment, the stress and anxiety I felt at 12am made me never want to come back to this hotel again, I couldn’t even sleep well in the other room in fear that they had traveled or was in the new room Also the new room’s bathroom had a TERRIBLE smell Yea nice hotel I just wouldn’t go back regardless discount or not

We had the best time in this Resort The property is well maintained, all services are available and the staff is very welcoming We had the best check-in experience in years

A highlight worth mentioning is the excellent breakfast menu Somehow Hilton used the pandemic as excuse to severely downgrade on breakfast quality as well as benefits for status members Not so in Carlsbad, they offer a well crafted breakfast menu that goes well beyond eggs & bacon and with diamond food credits you can actually get more than a cream cheese bagelCan only recommend this place for a get-away or when traveling through Southern California

Joe Sage

This review is written from the perspective of family trips with kids (though it could be a fun business trip center as well) This hotel is a great place to stay in the San Diego area

The most salient features are the pool, the ocean and the low key vibe The ocean is just across the street The pool is zero entry, large and there is a hot tub people can enjoy Food and beverages can be ordered at the restaurant and enjoyed pool sideNeed a low key day? Start with breakfast at the hotel (kids insist on it) and then spend time at the pool, walk to the beach, repeat with dinner and sunset poolsideWhen you need to explore the city, it’s an easy 30 minutes away This is our base of operations for our adventuresEnjoy!

Alvin Hao

Our experience was mixedThe good:Awesome ocean view poolRooms are spacious and clean

Best dinning experience, ocean and sunset viewHotel staff are nice and helpfulThe bad:There was an eyelash on the hair dryer, pretty creepyWe ordered some birthday amenities for my wife at the front desk at 5pm and was told that they’d be delivered to our room in an hour Well they were delivered around 10pm, after a few times of back and forth and me running around between the front desk and the restaurantSomehow housekeeping thought we were checking out and cleaned out one of our rooms Took me 2 days to be able to retrieve part of our belongings I’m still waiting for a call for the remaining, but I don’t think it will happen

I got married nearby and every time we had to stay somewhere to plan we stayed here! It is such a clean resort with friendly staff The breakfast was the only upsetting part, there was almost nothing to eat or drink The rooms were perfect and accommodated both bridal parties in their own suites

They were very understanding about keeping the parties separated, which we appreciated

Bill Delmer

The staff was excellent but the rooms were just ok, the cooking gear was old and scratched, I was not comfortable using it The breakfast however was simply awful I stay in these types of properties a lot and I checked in assuming I would get a decent breakfast but it was totally not up to the standards that this brand usually provides

Most mornings it’s just breakfast sandwiches, there were mornings where it was even less than that Once in a great while there would be little omelets, but maybe once per week Staff 5 stars, facilities 3 stars, breakfast 1 star and that’s generous I would not stay there again

Monina Buchongo

Short stay and WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN! I found a $400 charge by residence inn on my account I called to inquire about the charge and was accused of stealing pots, pans, and dishes I never got a call of investigation however, I was told by the person who answered the phone that the manager left a voicemail for me

Upon checking my voicemail, there was no message from anyone at the residence inn in San Marcos This is unacceptable and unprofessional This facility has no checks and balances for room inventory and when asked about it there was no solution Their products aren’t even mediocre, they’re cheap and of poor quality No thank you! DO NOT STAY HERE!

Front desk personnel did not immediately acknowledge our arrival even when there were 3 of them just chatting and we are the only people in front of them We arrived at past 3PM expecting that our room would be ready but were told to wait for their call It took more than 30 minutes until they told us our room is available

This is not to mention that I have a Diamond level status which were not even acknowledged at this hotel No offer of room upgrade, no free breakfast, no offer of bottled water nor points And parking is not even free Around 7PM, I went back to the front desk to request for a 2PM late check out next day but I was told to return back to the front desk at 6AM with a condescending tone Went back to the front desk at 6AM as instructed only to be denied and no alternative offered other than being told that they are fully booked On a positive note, the hotel is clean which should be base standard especially for a 4 star hotel I expected this to be a memorable birthday celebration for myself but it gave us a not so good experience Definitely not returning back to this property and now rethinking my future relationship with the Hilton brand

Melody Marshall

Our room was not ready until 5:00 pm!!! We are Diamond members and we’re told ‘even the manager had to come in to work on a Monday!’ Once in the room the safe had no working parts and the refrigerator was frozen and had to be replaced We went to the lobby for a non existent breakfast of only coffee and pastries

When we asked if they had a plate for the pastries we were told no The bar tables were filthy with food and drink spills When we ask for a rag to clean a table we were told there weren’t any and offered a baby wipe to clean it ourselves The front staff was just standing at the desks and could have at least cleaned the tables And why didn’t the bar staff clean them at night We were told the marketplace is never stocked by the resort hotel There isn’t a breakfast associated with being a Diamond member, no upgrades, no water, no Hilton benefits at all We were also told there are no upgrades at the Tapestry for Diamond members if you booked the room on points, we have never been told this at other Tapestry hotels The rooms are clean and the hotel is an easy walk to Legoland, but what makes this a Hilton property is beyond me This hotel is grossly understaffed

Brian Yamashita

I’m sure your experience will be better than mine and the end of my trip was good but the beginning was a rough one We had the thermostat go out om day one and it was broken the rest of the first day and second day As you might be able to imagine in the summer with kids and no air and nothing they can do it was a bad night

If I was staying a week it might have been fine but night to and day 3 we all sleep and made the vacation with the kids a bit of a loss when it came to taking them to lego land for only 2 hours day 2 because of how tiered they were

Best kept secret in Carlsbad!On a 30 day business trip with little time off and took the shuttle to the beach It was beautiful, I heard a little history on the way to and from, and was pampered like royalty!Staff was informative, helpful and friendly Room was very nice and having the option to eat on property is always a benefit for me!The outdoor space was great with a pool & jacuzzi that is not found in many new hotels these days

Corn hole, ping pong, and many other outdoor games for the kidsTwo minute walk to the beach was convenient, and the view from our room was breathtaking!Hope to bring the family back on vacation

Sheila Smith

Front Desk Staff was very nice The hotel is very dog friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, the grounds were beautiful plus there were lots of activities to choose from when hanging around outside Loved all the seating areas they had in their courtyard and around the grounds

I would have given 5 stars for my rating, however the restaurant service was not good It took the staff at the restaurant at least 10 min to acknowledge us or anyone else standing there , the tables were not cleared off and the service was a little slow

Jocelyn Ly

This hotel is was amazing from the location to the friendly staff It is literally walking distance from a beautiful beach They had beach chairs and toys for us to use

The rooms were remodeled and clean It included a mini fridge and microwave which was a plus!When we arrived, we were greeted by the friendly front desk staff They kept our luggage for us since our room wasn’t ready We were headed to Legoland and wanted to keep our luggage safeThey have a grab and go convenient store in the main lobby They also had a bar and restaurant for guests which is convenient if you don’t want to leave your hotel Breakfast buffet was offered for a feeThe pool was big and heated which was perfect for night swimming The jacuzzi was also very warm and relaxingOverall, I would definitely be returning in the future due to the friendly experience we had!Thank you Hilton Garden staff for an amazing stay!

Had to relocate to this resort late at night due to a water issue at previous hotel Hunter, the evening manager, helped my coworker and I check in, gave us very useful info, and even stayed over an hour past his scheduled time to help get my boss checked in who was running late Hunter went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of

Resort is very clean and nice Rooms are huge Staff and service is unmatched

daniel Proo

From the minute my wife and I came in Hunter in the front desk, Hunter was respectful and has sense of urgency to create a good customer service experience, I’ve gone to many hotels/resorts and never have I been greeted like Hunter has, his attitude is always positive and always had a solution to my stay These past 2 years have been a challenge specially for the service industry, Hunter is a advocate to the meaning of the service! This place is clean and will recommend to anyone that want to be treated like guest

Nemo Omen

They say they serve Starbucks coffee but no one but one person new how to brew coffee so I have wait until that one person came back to serve me Ridiculous I stood in front of coffee bar for 5 minutes and the bar tenders are just talking away

Also when I checked in the lobby lady said she was going to upgrade me to a bigger room but I had to wait two hours! After driving five hours I’m not going wait 2 more hours after my check in hour!! Hotel is beautiful, but staff are lazy and ignorant!! Probably not returning for a bad first impression! Would rather pay extra money for the resort on legoland! Very disappointed as a Sheraton regular customer

I’m surprised by all these 5 star reviews Those people were probably staying in the king size bedrooms overlooking the ocean 😂 We had a partial view doubles room that did not feel spacious or well-lit

I’m glad they are renovating and really hope they add Queen beds at least! The pros: Service was excellent! They really were so helpful and always present Loved the beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys, towels, etc… It’s also a nice location being in the quieter part of town and having a quieter part of the beach There are lots of smooth rocks in the water, however, so it hurts to boogie board unless you wear sandals which we had to do Cons: No water pressure in the shower, toilet that didn’t flush and we had to manually push the lever down in the tank to fill the bowl with water so that it would flush Every time, scratchy toilet paper, a continental breakfast that we just didn’t look forward to (hard boiled eggs are packaged and taste as such), French toast tasted packaged as well…it just wasn’t as good as what we’ve had at basic hotel which cost much less I hope that’s just a covid thing and the usual breakfast is hot and fresh with more protein items Overall I wish we had stayed in an Airbnb instead A washer/dryer would have been heavenly, especially when you’re there for 4 days like us and have swimming suits you want to wash or at least hang out to dry I’m so so happy to be home right now in my queen bed with Costco tp and eggs in my fridge fir a fresh breakfast in the morning Oh and because the water wash-off wasn’t working the first day we were there, we got sand in our room That is inevitable at a beach inn, but without daily housekeeping, the floors just get sandier and sandier We spread towels out on the floors and wore socks that we brushed off before bed, but sand still gets in your bed

Stacy Skach

I had booked and oceanfront room awhile back and had requested a higher floor Was told wheh I checked in, “I see it your profile”, but it’s unavailable and will let you know if we can accommodate you The WiFi is terrible

The rooms look amazing, but safes did not work I loved this hotel (and staff) before the renovation, but the staff is very evasive when it comes to anything I also had an unexpected maintenance man try to enter my room while I was in it and told me my lock didn’t work I said, I never called in a service order Also, the WiFi seldom works unless you ask the front desk for their portal password I paid for my Dad to stay in a pool terrace room too and the elevator was inconsistent in working Not good if your dad has a knee replacement I loved this place every time we have stayed here, but will Airbnb next time

Pam Sassi

Not a great experience For over $500 a night I would’ve hoped for better quality The property is under a 2 phase renovation and when booking you have no way of knowing if you are booked with the renovated side of the property or the old side

Our “ocean view” was the entire top of the roof of the building in front of us, which was absolutely hideous to look out at Lighting in the bathroom makes you feel like you’re in prison There was also a maintenance closet right out side the bathroom window which constantly had people going in and out of, which made you feel pretty uncomfortable taking a shower or even changing in your bathroom Internet was out the night we checked in and was told to “go find an internet cafe if we needed wifi” Also the air conditioning wasn’t working first night No one showed up that night or next day when I had to call again to remind them, then still didn’t get it fixed till late in the afternoon the next day I was told there was no room cleaning, if we need linens we have to find a plastic bag to put the old ones in and set them outside the door and wait till we get new ones? What a nightmare I also asked for more towels and never received any So over $500 a night for no clean linens and the same 4 towels Also, the roughest towels I have ever used, felt like sand paper Toilet stopped working on the second day, called down to the office and was told 5 minutes for someone to be up 1 hour later the “POOL BOY” came up to look at our toilet and said “Sorry I am the pool boy, the maintenance guy is on another property, I will let him know you need him” So, the office sent the pool boy for our maintenance request For breakfast you leave a card on your door and they collect your menu order and bring the next morning When our breakfast didn’t show up next morning the lady in the office said “you must’ve not filled it out correctly” BTW the breakfast was not worth the trouble, so skip it So disappointed and could’ve spent less on a lot nicer places we have stayed at before but considered splurging and trying something new in the area
