    It was walking distance from many restaurants and right across the street from the Outlet Mall. Our room was very clean with a great view of the pool.

    This hotel was perfect! The staff was wonderful, the shuttle service was great and the atmosphere was perfect. I have two young kids and this hotel could not have made anything easier; breakfast right onsite, centrally located and staff was very friendly and helpful. I was very pleased with the hotel and would book there again if I were to return to the same area.

    Great place to stay. Carlsbad is very relaxed, golf course nearby was excellent. Shopping is over the road with excellent shops and tons of good eateries all within walking/2 min drive. Highly recommend

    I really liked the location! It was minutes away from everything including the beach.

    Didn't care for the breakfast too much.

    We chose this because we thought it was by the sea. Unfortunately, not.

    it is really close to the freeway and airport so rather noisy

    The price was affordable, it was also comfortable, the beds were soft.

    Fabulous

    I stayed at Carlsbad by the Sea resort because I needed to be close to the Encinitas region. The hotel was an easy and pleasurably scenic drive from the town, so the location was great. Parking was not an issue and there are loads of restaurants and the Carlsbad Premium Outlets just across the street which was very convenient. The room was very big, facing the pool, not the street, so not noisy at all.

    The gym is small and not very modern, but it was convenient to have one on site. Breakfast was included, which was nice, but the choices were limited and the layout of the buffet can be improved because there was always a queue.
