Fathers’s Day weekend get away.
Stayed overnight. I was upgraded to a mini-suite (not complaining-but don’t know why). Nice area Centrally located. But a little pricey.

Fun Family Time
Great area. Walking distance to the heart of Carlsbad. Close to Legoland. Right off of the beach. Hotel supplies beach gear; surf boards, towels, umbrellas. Free Continental Breakfast. Friendly staff. Nice, small pool. Sofa bed was not comfortable, unusable. Slept on couch instead.

Would stay again!
Terrific location by the beach and Carlsbad Village, and helpful, welcoming staff. Floors and bathtub weren’t as clean as they ought to be, and breakfast was pretty lame. Still, this place has a lot of charm and the pool/jacuzzi area is just right.

Fantastic Stay!!
We had an absolutely amazing stay at Ocean Palms. The staff took care of us, offering local recommendations and making sure we had everything we needed for the stay. The hotel itself has a great environment, it felt like we had escaped to a far off tropical destination! The room was great, very clean and even ready for us to check-in a couple hours before scheduled check in. There are endless restaurants/bars within walking distance to the hotel, with a great variety of options (but if you like good Mexican food, you should be excited!) Also, if you love good beer, this is a great place to stay. The barrel republic right down the street has great options and great food, the Pizza-Port brewery also has great food and beer with a great vibe. Beach access is right across the street, the hotel provides chairs, umbrellas and towels so you have everything you need for a great beach day. And the beach is perfect, one of the better beaches I have been to in Southern California. Overall, nothing but great things to say and hope to be back soon!
