"Nice location; in close proximity to the beach."
Accommodations were nice for our family of 5. Overall, we liked the the room and general location. Our bed, however, was very uncomfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice spot for a Carlsbad getaway"
We booked this hotel as we were attending a nearby wedding. Great location, easy access to the interstate and other local roads in the area. Booked a partial oceanview, partial view was correct as we only saw a tiny sliver of water from our window past the pool view. Rooms were spacious and clean. Beds were fairly comfortable, though did not seem adjustable […] like advertised. Bathroom is on the small side, but adequate. Nice to be able to set the climate control system and the window opens to allow a breeze. Mini fridge, Keurig coffee machine, and small microwave with surround cabinet space was a nice addition. Overall hotel was quiet, but rooms are not soundproof. Pool area was nice and kept clean. We were unaware when booking that while the hotel is right across the street from the "beach", it is a cliff area, and the actual beach access is quite a hike down the road. Also, we were not aware there was a $12 overnight parking fee until arrival - we had friends stay at several other complexes in the immediate area, we were the only ones paying for overnight parking of our rental car. It is what it is, but would have been nice to know beforehand. There was a dance party going on for singles on the restaurant patio (below our room) on Saturday night, which was loud, but the noise ended promptly at 10 p.m. Only complaint was that we had to call for maintenance two different days as our toilet randomly would not flush. But staff was prompt and courteous both times. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The location was great as we were there for a wedding close by. We did not care much for the bed however. It was supposed to be a adjustable firmness mattress ... however ours did not work and was extremely soft, so we weren't able to get much sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Omg..!!! It was perfect..!!!"
It was only a one night stay, but what an amazing hotel. Its right across the street from the beach. Beautiful grounds, safe, clean and secure. Close to food, groceries, gas and freeways!!! Im definitely recommending this hotel to my fam and friends. Just wish i could have stayed longer!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right across from the beach!"
Great location as I surf and a simple walk across PCH and I was in the water. My wife enjoyed the comfy room and pool. Lot's of options nearby for food. Great service and we'll be back! $12 per day parking is kind of outlandish.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the beach"
The title says it all, it's close to the beach. To actually get to the water you still have to walk a bit vecause there is no beach access there ( at least not an easy one ). The hotel is nice but a bit overpriced for what it is. The ocean view room we had on the first floor was clean, had free wifi, decent furniture. The view is not what you would […] expect though. PCH is runs begween room and ocean. You actually have to stand up to see the water. Nice sunsets. Everything worked well. I have seen nicer showers. The room made a 'well used' impression if you know what I mean. The room was non smoking but there was a burn mark on the floor. All in all a nice hotel but nothing extraordinary. Price seems a bit high. Parking 12$ extra. We did not use the pool, or restaurant or anything else at the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We thought we would be closer to Carlsbad Village and was at first disappointed, but it was quite easy to jaunt down the road and park in town. Right on the ocean, but difficult to get to a beach. Sandstone cliffs too difficult for seniors to traverse. So we drove to town. Pool very pleasant. Nice grassy area for brown-bag lunch or share bottle of wine […] under the stars. Got to go to Tip Top Meats (German sausage deli & restaurant) just up Palomar Rd. Yummy! Had problem with water dripping from bathroom ceiling. Mgmt said they fixed it but still had leak next day. Our parking ($12/day) were camped when we complained. Pretty compound right on the beach! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful, right at the beach"
I very much enjoyed our stay. The hotel was beautiful, just wish we could've gotten an ocean view. It was our anniversary and being woke up way early by children in the pool was a little disheartening. But overall it was a great stay. The service and the food was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Both queen beds that we had were "sunked in" so we didnt get much sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great view and close to the ocean. Very friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
waiters so slow with 2 parties in restaurant, check in was awful, one key didn't workGenuine Expedia guest review
"everything not available"
The service was very friendly. The front desk people were very rude and no information was given until asked. I booked a suite for the couch for my third child, we had to squeeze a roll away bed in and they were going to charge us for it. They charged for breakfast, lunch, and dinner separately. There was a shuttle and was able to take us to the place […] we went, but had to wait at 9:00 pm with y three children outside in the dark, for 20 to 30 minutes. I am not sure where the mis-communication is, but the hotel stay was not up to the explanation of services. Also there was a movie night be held and was never told there was one or what movie was being provided. Not very good service, we will not stay at one again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Business and pleasure trip with my family"
The hotel was nice and we were pleased with our stay. The only think that really sticks in my mind was the high prices for breakfast and lunch. $15 per person for breakfast is steep. And $45 for two to eat with no alcohol is high as well. Other than the high prices of food this is a nice place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Two moms with kids in town for the summer trip to Legoland/Waterpark weekend. ..after a funfilled day at the theme park came to relax after hours at the pool/jacuzzi which turned out to be a great experience because they had movie night at the pool.... kids enjoyed it and moms got to relax!!! Staff was very friendly and helpful - kudos!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel. A few minutes walk to the beach."
It was a nice room and we were treated like a guest and not like a burden. Only a few minutes walk across the street to the beach. We had a nice stay and would recommend to anybody.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A little disappointed"
The hotel was fairly new. Looked nice from the exterior. Our room over looked the parking lot. Quite a disappointment when we were across the street from the ocean and it had a court-yard pool! The room was average. We expected more from Hilton. Might stay there again only for the convenience of the location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel and good location"
Location was great; close to Carlsbad, Oceanside and legoland. Staff was friendly and solved the minor problems we had at the beginning with the room. On Friday evening there was a free film evening for the kids, they loved it. Food was good too! Overall, a very pleasant stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Broken ac broken door cracked tile in bathroom"
Not good everything in the Hotel room was broken. Staff wasn't very good either. Never coming back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"clan walk to the beach"
Excellent hotel. Breakfast orders can get backed up however. Needs another grill.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location across from ocean is nice, but PCH immediately in front and hi speed rail and I5 directly behind is not optimalGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what I expected"
The hotel is OK, and probably good for families. I found the service at the front desk to be less than friendly. Oh, and to charge $12 per night for parking for a hotel far from everywhere is outlandish.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel was right across from beach."
Main reason for Carlsbad visit was Legoland. Too far of a walk to Legoland but, nice that hotel was right across from the beach. Hotel was nice. Our bed sunk in the middle. No other complaints. My son liked that it had a 24 hr gym located in hotel. We would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Liked: large room, nice area in the yard with sofas and tables. Disliked: 12$ parking; access to the beach is either too steep, or requires a 10 min walk; breakfast by menu does not exist - it is a buffet but you can opt to be charged by item.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel near Legoland"
We enjoyed our relaxing stay after action packed days at legoland. We were upgraded to an ocean view room. The pool was warm, the hot tub was hot and everything was very clean. The kids loved the afternoon cookies! It was a short drive to downtown Carlsbad. We had great meals at Las Olas and Blue Ocean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"easy walk to beach"
There was a yoga retreat going on there while I was there. I was awoken to a guy teaching the lesson outside my window. Not cool since I was not participating. There were people running around yelling at 3:00 am, likely had been partying on the beach. The room was clean and the staff were police.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

The staff was friendly. the rooms were clean bed nice the air conditioning drip hose leaked down in our bathroom leaving our bathroom floor with water so bad we had to change rooms. our next room the carpet was very wet and the cleaning people had to try and dry the carpet room smelled really bad. to get to the beach we had to go down a cliff. we will […] never go back.:( Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Family friendly accommodations and service"
As a grandmother with 2 boys, nine and twelve, the Hilton Garden Inn was a great choice. The hotel is not adjacent to a commercial area and without an automobile, we were limited to the hotel when we were not at Legoland or the beach. The food was surprisingly good: a varied choice, very well prepared, adult and kid friendly and nutritious. We only […] became aware on our last day that the hotel shuttle could have given us a ride to Carlsbad center. The service to and from Legoland was great -- even if you have a car this way you can avoid the parking hassle. The pool area was comfortable and easily accessible. The beach is across the street, but access is a ten minute walk, but well worth the exercise. All the staff were very understanding and interested in my two very active boys. They spent a lot of energy on the grass area and played ping-pong for the first time. We all enjoyed our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay!"
I took my daughters on a weekend get-away before they went back to school and we could not have picked a better place to stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good distance to Legoland & Beach."
The room overall was comfortable. There is a fridge & microwave. Its ridiculous that they charge for parking. Also the rate seems very high for limited amenities.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Family Spot"
We stayed at the Hilton last weekend during our family trip to Legoland. We had planned on staying one night, but enjoyed the facility so much we stayed an extra night!! The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Upon check-in, the front desk attendant suggested restaurants near-by and gave us coupons for the restaurants. The free hotel shuttle […] dropped us off and picked us up at Legoland and Carlsbad Village. We never waited more than 5 minutes for the shuttle. It was first class service. There were fresh baked cookies waiting in the lobby and happy hour in the bar. Friday night there was a movie set out on the lawn with blankets, popcorn and a fire pit. The rooms were clean and the grounds were meticulous. We had a wonderful trip! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great view for watching the sunset!"
Great location and friendly staff. Across the street from the beach with a great view! Perfect place to watch the sunset. There was no obstructed view of the beach at this hotel, so we were glad we picked this one. Other hotels close by had RV's and campers blocking their view and path to the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was a great location"
Our stay was nice. The kids enjoyed watching the movie outside in the pool. My husband was pleased to have a designated smoking area. Room service Twas prompt. Overall stay was pleasant. I would stay there again. The charges were a little on the high side though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very nice hotel, and very clean too"
My experience at this hotel was very pleasing and it was clean and the staff was very friendly, the only thing I did not like was the shallowness of their pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Over Exceeded Expectations"
We had a wonderful stay and will defnitely be returning. The suite was super comfortable. The kids loved the jacuzzi tub.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location right across from the Ocean Beach"
My experience was just OK for this recent stay. For the price I was paying I expected a better experience. The staff was not very friendly. They told me check in was at 3:00pm and I arrived at 4:00pm. I was told my room was not ready due to the previous person having a "late" check out. They offered me some water and told me I needed to wait 15 minutes. […] About 35 minutes later the room was finally available. Once in the room, its a typical hotel room you would find in most places. However, this place was charging much more per night. Granted it is the location they are charging for. The beds were horrible. The hotel staff did not tell us the beds were "adjustable". The first night was not comfortable until I found the selectable dial under the sheets. Even after making the adjustments, the comfort was average at best. During one of the days, we saw the shuttle driver and asked for a ride to a different beach. She told us we had to ask inside first. As I waited in line to ask, the shuttle driver came in and interrupted the clerk we were waiting for to tell them she was going to leave to go pick up another customer. The clerk specifically asked her if she had any other stops or people and she said no. By the time it was my turn to ask for a ride the driver was gone and I now have to wait 25-30 minutes. She knew we wanted a ride that could have easily been done on the way to her next pick up. They just did not get service. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The only thing I did not like was there was no porch. There was pleanty of room for one and missed being able to sit outside and enjoy the ocean front I paid for . John h. RayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a great time with my family. Nice pool. Nice Jacuzzi. Friendly Friendly staff. Good cantaloupe and strawberry Margarita!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The first night we got locked out of the room. Our key would not work and it took 30 mins for someone to open the door it was late at night I had children with me and did not feel they cared enough to speed the process up. The guy was nice friendly at the front desk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very pleasant! Friendly and helpful staff. Great ocean view! Will definately come back.Genuine Expedia guest review
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach. The staff was very accommodating, and the amenities were fantastic. The food was very good, and I would visit again.

"close to ocean"
Very nice. Great staff. Overall very good!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent stay at the Carlsbad HGI! I loved how the hotel had activities for guests of all ages: Movies on the lawn, live music in the resturant, game room and a bar-be-que themed dinner on the 4th!! It reminded me of a cruise ship! Front desk staff is friendly and very accomodating! Will stay again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach"
Great place close to the ocean. The pictures online are not correct however, given that you have to cross a main road to get to the beach. Still very close. I did not mind paying for daily parking, otherwise it would be overrun with other local tourist and local residents. The breakfast was good, a little pricey, but again worth it. The pool area was […] nice, although we did not use it. Have a ping-pong table as well. One of the conference rooms was turned into a "game room" with a few games in it for children. We stayed last year as well, and at that time there was a wedding so it was very busy, yet the service was just as good last year as it was this year. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Let's just say that was the first and last time we will go there. We sat at their restaurant table and never got asked if we wanted a drink or anything to eat, they only had 2 other couples at the time and 2 waiters! On top of that someone stole my checking info and made purchases for over 500 dollars , what a coinsidance the purchases were done in […] Oceanside! And when we asked for help from the hotel, management refused. instead manager Amir insisted there was nothing they could do to resolve any of our issues. Save your money and stay home. Or spend your hard earned money elsewhere! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly & courteous staff"
The hotel was so close to the beach, the staff was so courteous, friendly and helpful. The Hotel was clean, the beds were so comfortable. The movies for the children was a nice touch. Overall the Hotel was kid friendly which is great. The pool was great at 3 1/2 feet throughout. Would recommend greatly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Close to the beach"
Location wise if intending to be close to the beach this place is ok and it is not that far as well from shopping or dining. BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY WHEN YOU WANT TO RELAX AND HAVE A GOOD NIGHT SLEEP THE ROOM (324) WHERE WE ARE SITUATED IS DISAPPOINTING AND TERRIBLE. THE BED IS SUNKEN AND NOT COMFORTABLE AT ALL. MOREOVER, THE AIR CONDITIONER IS SO […] LOUD EVERY TIME TEMPERATURE CHANGES. IT'S LIKE A MOTOR BOAT PUMP ENGINE BEING STARTED AND THIS GOES ON AND ON THE WHOLE NIGHT.

I needed a hotel for my friend's wedding and this hotel was convenient especially the 24hr shuttle. But make sure you call the right hotel because I accidentally called the other Hilton and their shuttle ends at midnight. When I mention I thought it was 24hrs the women did not even mention I might have called the wrong hotel. She rudely responded "No […] one would tell you that." We got a cab back and when I asked the front desk guy about the shuttle he immediately realized I called the wrong hotel and after hearing about our call to the other hotel apologized for their actions and offered us free breakfast. We had other plans for breakfast but greatly appreciated the offer. Everyone at this Hotel was really nice. Our stay was quick and we were busy most of it but I would recommend this Hilton over the other one. I was so surprised how rude that front desk woman was especially compared to how quickly our guy realized the mistake and how nice he was about it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
