"across from ocean; 3 mile walk to town"
Very comfy beds, some stains on the carpet, bath in need of remodeling. constant issue with keys not opening doors. Big but expensive breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The grounds are quite nice with pool and outside fireplace. Great location with really spectacular views of the ocean. I had dinner one night at the hotel and I was impressed with the quality and the price. Great breakfast in the morning with eggs made as you like them. Again at a reasonable price. I would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms are a decent size. Every employee is kind and courteous. Swimming pool is great for kids. Love that they offer shuttle service within 5 miles of hotel. Easy check in and out. There is no direct access to the beach from hotel... even though it is right in front of Carlsbad Beach. You still have to walk to shuttle to get to the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was pleased, however if you're expecting and ocean view and your room is located on the first floor, you do not have and ocean view, there are also no balconies, both were advertised but in my eyes lacking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My girlfriend and I had a great stay here, even though the train runs by the back of the hotel, you hardly hear it. The rooms, pool area and jacuzzi are all beautiful. It's nice and relaxing in front of the fireplace in the lobby, right near the cookies!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location near the beach"
nice and relaxing; across the street from a beautiful beach with great walking and biking available next to the sand.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I really liked this hotel and how close it was to Lego land and the beach! Beautiful scenery and a great view from our ocean view room. Carpet in hotel hallways needs updating soon, but overall a quaint stay with very helpful service! Room service salmon dinner was very good! I will definitely stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice facility, but not real convenient to walkable areas for food or entertainment. Great for a quiet and relaxed get away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
everyone and everything was exceptional! The bed was the most comfortable of any bed in any hotel before this!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"an excellent value"
We were in town for a funeral, so we weren't in the usual mindset of vacation travelers, but the staff at the Hilton Garden Inn were very professional. We were impressed with the overall quality of the hotel and the services offered. Even though we checked in later in the evening, they gave us adjoining rooms, which was very helpful. The breakfast staff […] was cheerful and accommodating. The only "downside" was that the hotel was a little difficult to get to (at least at night). Overall, I would definitely recommend this Hilton Garden Inn for families or business travel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"excellent stay in every respect"
We love staying at this hotel as the location is wonderful and the rooms are large and extremely comfortable. the meals served are delicious and our visits are always exceptional.Jjoan EgbertGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was in town for a family funeral and after driving 9-1/2 hours the hotel staff made my check in a breeze and once I was in my room I was as comfortable as being homeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, great location"
We went to Legoland and the hotel was less than 10 minutes away. We also went to the music museum which was less than 5 minutes away. Great view and walking paths at the beach across the street. Spacious rooms with nice amenities and friendly staff. Overall, it was a great stay and we'd definitely go there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Could hear the people upstairs, very noisy."
The hallway outside our room had a very bad smell, like electric or bad wires. It was only in our area. People up above us, very noisy and walked very heavy until late at nite.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location relaxing time.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everyone in staff was friendly and greeted with a smile and "good morning". The pool and patios were beautiful especially the fireplace. The scenic views of the ocean directly across the street were breathtaking. The room was very nice and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed our stay. The room was large and clean. The beds are adjustable but still felt very hard. Excellent location and friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We have stayed in this hotel before and it is very nice and we enjoyed our stay/ The lobby had just been painted and it looked great. The staff was great and very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient location, across street from beach."
It was a convenient location. I hear that there will be room renovations next year. It is time. The room was nice but a little bit tired, however very clean. It was a good value for the money. The pillows were fabulous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the staff was awesome, from front desk to anyone we saw in hallways. all greeted us and offered help. we had an oceanfront room on 3rd floor in the corner. view was great but right below us was a dirty air conditioner area,, and you could not hear the ocean over the sound of it. breakfast is buffet only for 14.95. you can order ala carte at unreasonable […] prices, we shared a omelet and fruit for 13.00, should have did the buffet in hindsight.

"One night Stay-Over"
Literally right across from the beach. Great place to stay for a short trip to enjoy the sites and sounds of carlsbad beachfront. Close to shopping, food, beach and wonderful weather.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Afternoon cookies almost made up for poor beach access . All staff very friendly and hotel grounds beautiful . Could see ocean from room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Beach Hotel"
This is a great hotel right across the street from the ocean. We only stayed one night but would definitely visit again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Too pricey for the location"
Hotel location is not what I expected, the price is too high compared to the other hotels that has a better location ...convenience wise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice view and close to all for some must see sight"
Quick check in but must work on the shuttle service times. Was quoted 30 minutes waited an hour and half to be picked up.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very accommodating to our needs!"
The hotel was great, although our specific room was right next to the back doors and we could hear them pretty clearly slamming shut throughout the night as guests came and went. This is the ONLY reason I did not give them 5 stars. We needed a late check-in, and that was no problem for them. We also needed a late check-out, and they were willing to […] help us make those arrangements as well (for an additional fee, but with a fully-booked hotel the following night). The beds were comfortable, the amenities were all we needed, and it was just down the road from Legoland--our destination for the trip! We will be back to stay here again for sure.

"Fun, friendly hotel"
We stayed here to be near the beach. It was a little bit of a hike but once there, the beach was near empty and clean. The staff at the hotel were super friendly, the hotel pool always had clean towels, coffee in the lobby was great in the morning then cookies in the afternoon were a real treat. We loved the ping pong table by the pool with the beach […] behind us. Location in Carlsbad was easy access to restaurants and freeways but not too close, still private. Only negative was the noise between walls, it could be a little quieter, but this was minor. I will definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine hotel... TERRIBLE BEDS"
The hotel was really fine but their adjustable beds are HORRIBLE!!!! Also, you can't walk down to the beach from there.... only look out over it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed one night. Traveled with 2 adults and 2 children Visiting Lego Land. Across from the beach. Clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and attentive. Although it was next to freeway it was not noisy and our room was along the backside next to the freeway.Genuine Expedia guest review
My son and I enjoyed our stay while visiting Legoland for a couple days. Friendly staff and restaurant crew made our stay a pleasant one. Will stay here again on our next visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hilton by the sea"
The location is across the highway from the ocean. But, it is a bit of a treacherous hike down to the beach. Not recommended for handicapped, small children, or the uncoordinated.Genuine Expedia guest review
"too expensive for a motel..."
Too expensive to pay $230/night for a motel... doesn't matter that it called Hilton..Genuine Expedia guest review
Beach is across the street from the hotel. Places to dine are close. Beach (state beach) not crowded but a little remote. Has bike lane in the street and paths on the beach to walk or jog. Price is a little high due to location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Second time around ..."
This was our second stay at Hilton Garden Inn and it was every bit as good as the first time,the staff and hotel grounds were friendly and well maintained,we look forward to our next stay there... Thank youGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a great hotel in a great location the beach access could use some help maybe some sort of stairway down to the beach.... The room was very clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel and we will stay there again. ThanksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was overall pretty great, but I think the shuttle service could have went by name or room # when they pick people up...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel close to Legoland and the beach!"
I booked this hotel for our recent visit to Legoland. We liked the proximity of the hotel being close to the beach and Legoland. The hotel had a nice pool and spa, nice onsite dining and small bar and loved the free shuttle to Legoland. The rooms could be a little bit cleaner, but it could just be the wear and tear of an aging building. Overall, we […] were happy with the accommodations and were thrilled to get 2 nights for the price of 1 night at the Legoland hotel! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing in every aspect!"
One of the best stays of all time, perfect location (literally across the street from the beach) timely shuttle service and weekend movies in the atrium topped it off. I will definitely return!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time. The hotel is very tropical. The kids watched movies on the pool-side lawn at night. Cozy fireplace outside. You can walk across the Palomar bridge to fun restaurants or take the shuttle to Carlsbad Village. Hotel really is across the street from the beach, we played and surfed and felt very welcome trekking our surf gear through […] the hotel. Nice showers near the pool to clean-up after surfing.

"GOOD HOTEL, BAD SERVICE"
Very nice Hotel, located near Legoland and the outlets, the beach is just across the street but the beach access its not easy at all! Far from San Diego, Sea World and other atractions. The manager was a bit rude, other than that very recomended hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked the room for a business visit. I was overall very pleased with the hotel. The staff was superb! Everyone I came in contact with was professional, attentive, super polite and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Ocean (not the beach, tho) DISAPPOINTING!"
OK, if you're not picky. Hotel is old. Many broken aspects in rooms. Nothing is within walking distance. No beach access. Must cross hwy to be on the side of the ocean. No paths to walk along. Ok for overnight stay but not extended stay. We will not be returning. Not very representative of a Hilton. Very disappointing overall.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Family perks a plus"
We. Had stayed here before and decided to stay again with our visit to legoland. The weekend outdoor movie was such a great addition to our stay. The family enjoyed crossing the highway to the beach to watch the surfers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to beach & Legoland"
We stayed at a hotel next to Legoland for the first few days of our trip but this would have been a very convenient place to stay as well, as long as you don't mind taking a shuttle instead of walking. We moved here later in our trip to be near the beach. It's right across the street, though you do have to walk about 7 minutes to get to a spot where […] you can access the beach. If you drive, there are restaurants and sites nearby, otherwise there's not a lot within walking distance to see. The hotel and location are just average, nothing to write home about. We wouldn't mind staying here again, but would probably look for something closer to restaurants, shopping, etc. next time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach and Legoland"
The staff was incredibly nice. Some of the nicest staff I've ever experienced. The beach is very close, however, access to the beach isn't as simple as it might seem. If you think you can just stroll across the street and then down to the beach, it isn't quite that simple. There is a pretty steep cliff that separates the beach from Carlsbad Blvd in […] most places, so you have to go down a ways to find a suitable access to the beach, unless you are adventurous enough to climb down... the climb back up will probably be harder. Also, no shuttle to Legoland, so if you're visiting, be prepared for the $15-$20 parking at Legoland. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Stayed for 4 days and it was great! Location is close to everything. Shuttle available anytime...may wait a little bit on peak hours. Complimentary entertainment for kids.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a nice hotel. Rooms were clean and roomy. A little older but well maintained. Very kid friendly. If you don't like kids go somewhere else. Pool area was super. Nice Happy Hour but restaurant was a little pricey. Beach access was a good 5 minute walk but the views were breathtaking. RC airplanes off the bluffs was an added attraction. I will definitely […] go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to Legoland."
I really enjoyed the shuttle service they provided to and from Legoland. I wasn't expecting it, so it was a very nice perk for me.Genuine Expedia guest review
