Lovely getaway!
Currently working on renovations in the lobby and outside painting of the building- it will look amazing when completed. Super friendly staff and over cleanliness of the hotel was excellent. There were always staff members around taking care of the area. Definitely would return!

Not what I was expecting
We decided to have a quick impromptu trip to Carlsbad, booking a hotel two hours before arriving. I picked this hotel because it had free WiFi, free parking, free breakfast and was across the street from the beach. The hotel had exactly what it stated but not what I expected. The continental breakfast was pretty poor; packaged pastries, warm bacon, stinky/old hardboiled eggs; definitely not very appetizing. Also, the rooms had very little privacy. The see-through curtains on the window didn’t do much. Black out curtains on top of the see-through ones would be a nice addition. The hotel is starting to look a little run down and could use some updating. The staff was nice. Unfortunately the marine layer was very thick, so you lost the view of the ocean. It’s an ok hotel. Not worth the price I paid though.

we were by the stairs and it sounded like people were rolling there suitcase down the stairs. If we go back I will get a room away from the stairs and elevators.
