    everything. very relaxing, great rooms, nice pool area.

  • 8.8

    The hotel is close to the beach (100 metres) but across a four lane road from the beach. We weren’t there long enough to find out about crossing or check out the pool area. Gym area looked great. Large, plenty of equipment. Staff were very helpful. Furnishing, decor etc to a very high standard.

    A bit pricey. Our room lacked a terrace or balcony and faced the car park. More expensive rooms could be better. We only stayed one night passing through.

    The property is beautiful. The staff is off the charts friendly and helpful. The on-site restaurant is excellent, although pricey.

    The map provided shows this hotel in Carlsbad Village. I chose this hotel specifically to be within walking distance of the restaurants and beach of the village. In reality, the property is 5 MILES from the village. It is completely isolated. The beach is very rocky, which makes it difficult to walk on, which is why I was there. We had to drive to Carlsbad village and struggle to find parking in order to enjoy our favorite restaurants and the perfect walking beach in the village. I highly recommend that whoever is responsible for the map: fix it!!!!

    The decor and view

    The pool service was horrible. Not enough staff on hand. They ran out of towels and we froze making us leave early to our room. There were no extra umbrellas for us and the people above us wouldn't stop running around even after a phone call from the staff. We were not happy with the stay for the money we spent at all.

  • 9.2

    The location is great, right near the beach in southern California. The hotel is nice and clean because it is brand new

    The hotel is noisy, you can hear the people in the room above. The breakfast is not managed well. There was a 30 min. wait because there was not enough personnel and once we sat down we did not see a single waiter. You would think a chain like the Hilton would have experience with this... Also in a start up. In this hotel there is lots of small kids in the pool area...

    The staff was very helpful and very friendly.

    I have stayed at Holiday Inn Express and other places that cost a great deal less and the rooms were actually nicer than Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront. Our view from the 2nd floor did overlook the ocean, but right across the street, between us and the ocean was an RV park. There was no access to the beach because of a fence surrounding the RV park. We could smell the charcoal from their grills when we tried to sit on the balcony. Chandler Restaurant had only specialty items daily and was extremely expensive. The other restaurants in the area meant a drive away from the hotel.

    We experienced problems with internet connection but the staff, from Manager down did a great job in dealing with it. The best: the team over there.

    Problems with internet connection. Having to call AT&T directly (no solutions encountered).

  • 9.2

    The location wasn't the best. We would of loved it more if it was right on the ocean!

  • 8.2

    The beds were very comfortable, towels nice, pool was nice.

    Jacuzzi was a complete joke. Had lots of room to build a big one, to compliment pool, but it was tiny for the space and not very hot. Fire alarm went off at 11 P.M. woke everyone up, staff never explained it or Manager, when I saw him, never even apologized for the inconvenience! I will never stay again.
