"Does not disappoint!!"

05/08/2018

It was my first time to Carlsbad, traveling along after an intense 5 night stay at the Chopra Center. Wanted some amazing beach time and to be in the center of things. I had early (1 pm) check in and and was able to get out for lunch and explore the beach. Loved everything about this place - you won't be disappointed to stay here!!

BeachManager, Manager at Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Thank you for taking a moment to recommend us! We are so pleased that you were able to unwind and recharge here after your retreat at the Chopra Center. If you're in the area again, we would love the opportunity to be your host once more.

"Great location at the Beach"

We had a room on the third story with a balcony that faced the street. We could see the ocean if we stepped out on the balcony. This is an older hotel but the room was clean and the bed comfortable. The front desk staff were very friendly. The only complaint we had was that we were not told we could receive 250 Best Western points if we did not have a maid come to the room the next day. We never have a maid come to the room while were are traveling so we missed out on the points because they failed to tell us. Keep that in mind if you are a Best Western member.

BeachManager, Manager at Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Hello Kate and thank you for taking a moment to share your feedback with us! We are so happy that you enjoyed your room and the ocean but sorry to hear that you felt uniformed about our Clean Planet Program. We would love the opportunity to make this right for you! Please feel free to send us an email at [email protected] so that we may promptly credit you with the Best Western points that you deserve.

We wanted a hotel with ocean view and easy access to the beach and this hotel did not disappoint. The location is amazing, right across from the beach, with many restaurants and shops within walking distance. Parking is free, which is a big bonus. We did have a bit of a hiccup at check in. We arrived at 2:30 and were told that our room would hopefully be ready within an hour, and though check in time is at 3 PM, they really mean "after 3 PM." First time I hear of this interpretation of check in time. We were promised a phone call as soon as our room was ready, never got it. We were hanging out on the patio enjoying the view for a while. At 4 PM we finally went back to front desk and they told us they were *just* informed that all rooms were now ready, including ours. Aside from that minor issue, rest of our experience was good. Hotel provides towels, chairs, boogie boards and sand toys for beach goers. Breakfast was pretty decent. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and would probably return if staying in oceanfront property is a requirement. Otherwise, it is rather expensive.

BeachManager, Manager at Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, Polina! We are delighted that you enjoyed our beachside location. We feel quite lucky ourselves to get to spend our days at the beach. I am sorry to hear about your hiccup at check in. We work very hard to ensure that each room is pristine and ready for check in at 3pm. We would love the opportunity to speak with you more about your experience. Please feel free to give us a call at 760-729-1151.

We only stay at this hotel. Fabulous location, wonderful staff and a great location! Our son was attending school at GIA. We visited three times and always stayed at this hotel. This last trip, I lost my IPAD while staying at the hotel. It was found, I received a call and it is being mailed to me.

We wanted a quiet hotel near the beach in Carlsbad and were delighted to be able to view the ocean from a lovely outdoor raised patio each evening. The overall location with many delightful restaurants nearby were essential to the great experience we had.

BeachManager, Manager at Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Thank you for taking a moment to share your experience with us, Cherry. We are thrilled that you were able to spend time on our sundeck. We happen to think that it offers some of the best ocean views and sunsets in Carlsbad! If you ever return to the area, please let us know. We would love to see you again.

"Great family accommodations!"

31/07/2018

Location is GREAT - directly across the street from beach and walking distance to Carlsbad Village shops and restaurants. Staff was very friendly and helpful. WiFi was a little slow, and they could've used larger beds (we had doubles), but overall a great property! Would absolutely stay here again!

"Wonderful!"

29/07/2018

We loved this hotel! It's right across the street from Carlsbad State Beach and even has a balcony that overlooks the ocean. We ate their complementary breakfast out on the balcony every morning. There were lots of lunch and dinner options within walking distance of the hotel. What a cute little beach town with super friendly people! We stayed 4 nights and were VERY happy with the housekeeping every morning. The rooms were very clean and stocked every day with fresh towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner as needed. The hot tub and pool were clean and refreshing at the end of the day. Our room had a gas fire place to warm you up in the evenings, as it can get into the upper 60's in the summer evenings. There is a refrigerator to stock with drinks and snacks if you plan on staying a few days and there is a microwave as well. I see a few bad reviews on here, but honestly, those people must have expectations beyond the average vacationing family. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be back!

This Hotel has old damp carpet. The rooms are dark and damp and are not very well cleaned by staff. They need to have like a love seat or something so that u can sit and enjoy T.V. Prudence the lady that checked me in had alcohol on her breath and was rude.

Stayed here with our kids and their significant others, we stayed here a couple of years ago. We will stay here every time we come back to southern California, I love the hotel and the staff. They go above and beyond for people, they have beach chairs and towels for people to use. They also have sand toys, boogie boards for their guests to use. We saw a couple of dolphins swimming close to shore one morning at breakfast. We will be staying there in July of next year.

Thank you for taking a moment to share your experience with us, Candy! Your glowing review made us smile and we so look forward to seeing you and your lovely family again next July!

"Better Than I Expected!"

12/06/2018

As a solo, older traveller, I pay attention to details, research a lot and read current reviews before I choose my accommodations. I'm pleased to share that my stay here was everything I expected and better. The location was perfect for me. It was an easy walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. My room was clean. The bed was comfortable and I got to relax on the sun deck, overlooking the beach. Many others have written about the friendliness, kindness and helpfulness of the staff and I personally can attest to this, too. Prudence, the hotel supervisor was warm and welcoming. Dorthy, in charge of the breakfast area, was lovely to chat with, was willing to handle any request and impressed me with her conscientiousness to keep the area well stocked and well maintained. I had a great overnight stay and a lovely experience.

BeachsideHotel, Manager at Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your lovely feedback with us! It makes us incredibly happy to know that you enjoyed your time here. We will certainly pass along your compliments to Dorothy, Prudence and the rest of our team. We hope to see you again soon!

The views are awesome. You can eat breakfast while watching the ocean. The staff is also incredibly helpful, especially Dorothy. The rooms are nice too. They have a great breakfast in the morning. And it's walking distance to a lot of great restaurants and shops. Will stay here again.

The staff was friendly and helpful, the location is right across the street from the beach. The supervisor, Prudence, checked us in early and found my lost pillow after we checked out. She is the star of this hotel! We will definitely be back.

"Ocean view, friendly staff, great hotel"

The hotel is situated in a corner street. Directly across, walking distance is Carlsbad state beach. Beach is beautiful. You can walk the shore for miles. Watch surfers trying to catch their perfect wave. Hotel is clean and comfortable. Staff was amazing. Prudence we very helpful and friendly. Dorothy was sweet and lovely to chat with. Sitting on the patio enjoying the ocean view was my favorite part. Breakfast was great, more than enough Coffee shops near by. Carlsbad village walking distance. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

BeachsideHotel, Manager at Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your time here in our little beachside Village! Prudence and Dorothy are such incredible members of our team and will be thrilled by your kind words. Thank you for your review and enthusiastic recommendation.

"Great Economical Spot for a California beach vacation"

5
20/05/2018

My wife and I had stayed at this Best Western many years ago prior to its more recent upgrades and already thought it was a great location. Now we love it even more. They have really made it a great place to relax and enjoy the perfect location directly across the street from the ocean. The deck offers a great view out onto the Pacific and the very nice beach that accompanies this spot on the coast. The room was very comfortable and the housekeeping staff always kept it clean and presentable. The separation of the vanity from the bath was a great touch and made for getting ready each day a lot quicker for my wife and I. The balcony offered a partial view of the beach and a nice spot to relax after our travels around the village each day. A small fridge and micro wave and in-room coffee maker made it nice for later morning starts when we didn't take advantage of the very nice continental breakfast that was offered each morning in the community room that also provided a great view of the beach. The staff always supplied a great array of danish, fresh fruit, cereals, snack bars, and if you wanted something hot, a nifty pancake maker or breakfast sandwiches that you could microwave. Plenty of coffee as well as teas and juices were available. The property had a nice small swimming pool and hot tub in the courtyard. There are also laundry facilities on the property if you choose to do your own during your stay with detergent, quarters and dryer sheets provided by the hotel. Everyone we dealt with on the staff were very nice, helpful and professional including Prudence, the Manager, Joan the weekend clerk who got us checked in and Dorothy who made sure the continental breakfast was stocked and room clean. There is an elevator available so the property is handicapped friendly. The only small drawback is the car port parking which is a little tight and doesn't accommodate bigger vehicles well but that was easily overcome. Will be back on our next trip to Carlsbad.

"Great Location and Staff - Property could use some updates"

09/05/2018

My wife and I visited Carlsbad for our babymoon and decided to stay at BW due to location and price. We were checked in and greeted promptly. The property looks great from the street and has great beach views. We received our keys and headed to our room. Nice room, wall ac, small bathroom, nice deck with ocean views. Certainly nothing to complain about. This property is perfectly located, within walking distance to everything Carlsbad has to offer. It also offers free breakfast! Perfect for any family travelling. We loved the sun deck for sun sets. The downside: The pool is located right in the middle of the property. It is nice to be able to jump in but there are very few chairs to sit at. Also a small hot tub. Due to little sun hitting the area, probably makes more sense to have nice fire pits for guests to sit around instead. Carpets in the hallways/elevator - Hotel needs to invest in new flooring in common ground area. Bathroom shower had very low water pressure. Must update bathrooms/showers. Overall, Carlsbad is not the type of place you spend a ton of time in the room and this property offers a great spot to walk around and access to beach. I think BW will put some money into this property in the near term and it will be great. Suggestions: You need to put a tv and little bar on that sundeck to monetize. The common area where breakfast is served should be open all day and maybe roll out ping pong tables/board games for kids at night? We will be back to Carlsbad and BW thanks to location and the staff.

"great hotel to stay"

05/05/2018

hotel was perfect location across from beach --we saw dolphins in the mornings. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a very nice location busy during the day but very quiet after 8. Kids loved the pool & hot tub. Rooms were very clean, no bed bugs & staff very friendly. We loved Dorothy every morning during our continental breakfast--she was so pleasant & sweet. We look forwarded to talking to her daily. Awesome hotel & perfect location with great view of beach & very safe.

04/05/2018

Had the fireplace room, which was nice to take off the morning chill - very comfy bed (& they were receiving new mattresses the day we checked out) - carpet was tired - bit dark & noisy from the traffic noise - excellent location - nice terrace with view of main drag & beach - decent breakfast - has a pool & hot tub but I never used them.

Great location , clean and comfortable. Right across from beach , restaurants and shops right there and easy walk to main part of town. Came to Carlsbad to take a class at the flower farm. Was perfect for my overnight stay.

"Lovely stay with beach views"

5
26/04/2018

We had a great stay here - loved the location (so easy to walk to the beach or to town). The rooms were nice and I liked that ours had a separate sink area from the toilet/shower. I also like their conservation program - instead of having the room cleaned every day, you can elect to have fresh towels/toiletries dropped off - which is perfect if you're just staying the weekend. I also cannot say enough good things about the front desk staff - they were SO friendly and SO helpful (even making a reservation for a group of 20 of us at a fantastic Italian restaurant). Finally, I loved that the hotel had beach chairs (backpack version!) and towels - it made it entirely stress free.

"Great location and friendly staff"

25/04/2018

We really enjoyed our stay at the BW Plus Beach View Lodge. The location across from the state park/beach and close to restaurants is ideal. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable; the hotel is on a semi-busy street so if you're a light sleeper you may want to take ear plugs. Pool is warm and clean, perfect for kids.

"great stay, view, location"

great hotel with pool and hot tub in the center area, had the beach right across the street and hotel provided beach chairs, towels, boogie boards. room cleaned everyday and breakfast provided in the guest lobby from 7-10am. walking distance to everything within Carlsbad village area, many restaurants, bars, dessert spots to go to, quick drive to everything else. Great spot to stay overall, had an amazing time.

"A Bit Overpriced."

18/04/2018

The hotel was comfortable and the staff were excellent but the hotel is old and needs a makeover. We thought it was very overpriced despite the location. The included breakfast was very underwhelming.

BeachsideHotel, Manager at Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Thank you for your comments, Ann. We appreciate your compliments regarding our wonderful staff and comfortable accommodations. Please know that we have completed renovations to our kitchen that have allowed us to improve the quality of our breakfast service. We certainly hope that you will give us another opportunity to impress you with our beachside value!

"Valentines weekend getaway "

10/04/2018

We were looking to get away for the weekend and be close to the beach. This was the PERFECT spot! Clean, super friendly, spacious and walking distance to everywhere. Loved it! The ocean and walking trail were right across the street. The downtown area is 10 minute walk or less. Great food and shopping! There was a live band at one of the downtown restaurants. Great beachfront community with a lot of ambiance.

"Mildew smell, unusable sofa bed"

2
09/04/2018

The location is good, and the breakfast room and lobby are pretty. On our trip, that was it for the positives. We booked a suite and paid upwards of $300. The room stunk of mildew. The source may been been the shower, which leaked constantly, and the toilet made an odd backing-up sound. We'd booked a suite specifically so our daughter would have her own space and we would all sleep well. But the pull-out sofa bed in the living area was unusable. Our daughter, who has a very mild dust mite allergy, was coughing and sneezing and her nose running so badly after 20 minutes on it that we had to have her sleep with us. That had never happened to her before, and we travel regularly. Clearly the sofa bed was either extremely old or had not been properly cleaned. We were staying one night, had arrived late, and were leaving early, so we didn't bother with trying to move rooms or get the hotel to fix the shower. Perhaps other rooms are better. But we'll never come back here to find out.

"Too loud"

3
08/04/2018

Great location but no sound control in rooms. We could hear every footstep in hall, every door opening and closing, water in pipes, every conversation, and every car passing. We were told no one had complained before and nothing was done about a party next door for hours. Floor carpet was slimy.

"Great location and amenities"

5
30/03/2018

If you are looking for a place with the perfect location in Carlsbad, then this is it. It is directly across the street from a great beach and walking distance to center of town with restaurants and shopping. The hotel is old fashioned motel style, but the rooms have been renovated to be up to date and very comfortable. It isn't fancy by any means, but the bed and pillows are very comfortable, the tv is large, and the room is stocked with personal items and a coffee maker. Another plus is the friendly staff, complimentary parking, and complimentary breakfast. The only caveat is that when you book the room, it promises an ocean balcony. That is very true, but the motel is situated sideways, so you cannot see the ocean from the inside of the room, you have to be out on the balcony to see the ocean. This was a bit of a surprise when we booked the room, because we specifically wanted a room with an ocean view for my husband's birthday. We still recommend staying at this place overall.

"A lovely place to stay"

22/03/2018

This lodge was well situated with a sun deck over looking the beach, it was very handy for walking to restaurants and shops. The room was clean and comfortable, though the complimentary breakfast was disappointing, no coffee after 10am. Staff explained there was a problem with the kitchen facilities.

"Ocean Views and Outstanding Hospitality"

5
20/03/2018

First time at this property and would stay again in a heartbeat. Booked the family into a room with two doubles and a partial ocean view balcony. The ocean is directly across the street (via two crosswalks) and there are unobstructed views from the front of the property. If you want to wake up every morning with a full ocean view be sure to request a room facing west near the lobby. Prices were extremely reasonable, but it was the staff that made our stay AMAZING. Prudence checked us in and immediately offered us beach chairs so that we could walk down to the beach and enjoy the afternoon sun. If you didn't bring your beach necessities with you, don't worry, the front desk staff probably has what you need. The staff working the continental breakfast is so thoughtful and helpful. The needs of the picky eaters in the group were easily met and everything at breakfast was clean and extremely well-organized. Plenty of meal options within walking distance. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. If you really want to be close to the beach, don't want to spend a fortune, and enjoy being treated well by staff this is a great option. Note: if for any reason you have trouble with inclines please note that the access to the beach is a steep gravel/paved (not smooth) incline that might prove a little tough on the knees. Also, the rooms at the property are mostly accessed by stairs, but an elevator is available. Finally (this is California after all) parking is underneath the property and the spaces are California parking space sized, so if you are planning to bring the full-size SUV or pick-up, be warned that parking might be a challenge.

Great location near beach and downtown area/restaurants. Dry breakfast adequate with cereal, muffins, microwave breakfast sandwiches. WiFi was bad . Pool , hot tub great and clean . Limited sun until mid day at pool due to building shade.

"Everything you would expect from a cookie-cutter Best Western Plus"

22/02/2018

Clean modern, and well managed hotel steps to beach and in the quaint town of Carlsbad. Great beds, friendly staff, and acceptable dry continental breakfast. Full ocean views are in the common areas. Partial ocean views if your room is on the side with a balcony. No laundry machines.

"Awesome value, service and location"

12/02/2018

My wife and I spent a lovely night in downtown Carlsbad Village and stayed at this nice hotel. Rooms were big, clean and nice balcony. We had a bit of a view which was nice. We were not able to check in at 3 beacuse of a housekeeper that called in sick, but Nick at the desk ran up to our room to help get it done when a new reservation person arrived. We ended up in our room only 40 minutes late and he gave us a nice discount for our troubles. The location across the street from the ocean and two blocks from the village was terrific. We easily stumbled home from a night at Coyotes. Breakfast bar was OK. My only complaints are that the rooms are not very soundproofed and we could hear a lot of noise and that some light got into the room beacuse the bathroom window was near a light you could not get rid of

I stayed at the Best Western + in Carlsbad, California. This place was GREAT!!! Right on the ocean and beach!!! The whole place was so eclectic and great!!! I had great sleeps, great white noise, a workout room, breakfast and the whole place was clean. It has a lot of area outside in the courtyard, including a great pool!!! I would stay here every time I'm in the San Diego area. Very conveniently located at 3180 Carlsbad BLVD and near great shopping and restaurants and bars within an easy walk…. Try this place!!!!!

Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge is wonderful! The rooms were very nice and the location is amazing! You can walk right across the street to the beautiful beach. We also walked to Carlsbad village every evening and enjoyed the boutique shopping, amazing restaurants and bars, and live entertainment! The staff was wonderful. Mike at the front desk was great. When he knew we were going over to the beach he gave us beach chairs, towels, and boogie boards all free of charge. Also the ladies taking care of the breakfast area were wonderful. The free breakfast was very nice. It will even be better when they get their kitchen open. We also enjoyed the hot tub. We will definitely be staying here again anytime we are in the area.

"A Great Best Western"

16/01/2018

This was our 3rd stop on our 12 day road trip from Las Vegas through Southern California. We are Best Western diamond level reward members and this was one of the best BW hotels we have stayed in. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfy with lots of pillows to choose from, the free WiFi was consistent, the shower was great and the staff were friendly and eager to help. We had plans to utilize the guest laundry on this stop, but when we tried, the washer was not working. Not a problem for them. Once they were notified, our laundry was immediately taken to the hotel laundry, washed, dried, folded and delivered to our room. The breakfast area is being remodeled, but with the beautiful weather while we were there, we enjoyed eating on the oceanfront deck! Every aspect of this facility was great from the friendly check-in to our check-out. If we ever have the opportunity to travel to the west coast again, this will certainly be where we'll spend our time.

"New Years Eve wonderful experience"

We arrived on December 31 for a relaxing stress free, low key NYE celebration. The hotel is directly across from the beach, great views and the town of Carlsbad is very walkable. We left our car parked for 2 days, and explored the town and Beach on foot. Best Western Plus is not a fancy hotel, but it is a rare gem, everything about the hotel was perfect. It was clean, comfortable beds, great internet, a fireplace, breakfast, and directly across from the beach. All the staff made our stay so comfortable, everyone was so nice and helpful. We will be back. Perfect

This place is very nice. Best location, walk across the street to a great state park/beach. No added fees. Parking is free. Decent breakfast, but kitchen was closed for remodeling. Rooms could use brighter lighting. Watch the sun fall into the ocean every night, what a view. Walk to the Carlsbad village. Will return. Great value for the money, for a Carlsbad location. Receptionist, Prudence couldn't do enough to help. All hotels should be run this way. Smiles all the way around.

Great spot directly across from a state beach, offering great views, especially of the sunset which can be enjoyed while sitting on a beautiful 2nd floor deck, complete with comfy chairs, tables and chaise lounges. The staff is warm and welcoming, and the property also offers a small but spotless swimming pool and a cozy but well appointed fitness center.

Across the street from the beach, great little sun deck and walking distance to all the restaurants and shops in Carlsbad Village + free parking. The rooms were spacious (albeit a bit dark). Loved the fireplace. Only glitch was no hot water for about 6 hours but luckily it was on by morning. Breakfast was a little blah so we chose not to eat there. Overall a good deal for the location.

Staff was very helpful. We watched the sun sink into the ocean from the deck. Jacuzzi was perfect temperature. Walking distance to restaurants. Beach was directly across street so we could walk long stretches of sand. Wonderful getaway!

We really enjoyed our stay in Carlsbad and loved staying at the Best Western Premier Beach View. This is THE best location to be, directly across from a spectacular white sand beach that is easy to access with a wide paved path. We drove past several other hotels we had considered and their locations were not even close to as nice as this one. The hotel is so well kept up with many nice details. The breakfast room is beautiful with an amazing view of the beach. There's also a wooden deck outside the breakfast room to eat and enjoy the view. Carlsbad Village is adorable and so easy to walk to from this hotel. We ate at several great restaurants and enjoyed the shops. The manager of this hotel, Prudence, is so welcoming and helpful with any questions you may have during your stay. We really loved it here and have already recommended it to friends and family.

"Great location but average stay"

We stayed at this Best Western during Thanksgiving holiday (so understandably we paid a bit over the normal rate). There were other options but we had chosen this hotel because it looked more unique and seemed to be well-liked by others. What we liked: Staffs were friendly Location was fantastic. You were just seconds from the beach. It was also very close to the town center. Good quality breakfast, plenty to chose from. You can also get a nice view of the water. What we didn't like: We were upgraded to a suite, but while the room was bigger, this room was not as good as the normal room. Compare to other traveller's picture, in this room the furnitures feel just randomly placed, and walls are just painted stud wall. The furnitures also feel a bit old and tired. For example the sofa was really soft and give a loud creaking noise when you sat on it. The suite also didn't have any view. The main windows are looking into the corridors and the room windows is looking at another house at the back.

Large rooms, incredibly friendly and accomodating staff, free covered parking, and proximity to Carlsbad Village (5 min. Walk) and the beach (right across the street). You really can't beat the value here. The only downside was the size of the bathroom, which was truly tiny, but then, how much time do you really spend in the bathroom?

This place is excellent. The food is good, the pools and water slides were such a wonderful treat. We stayed the weekend before Halloween and the kidstopia staff took my son trick or treating around the property! The s'mores at night were good fun too! Luca checked us in with front desk sophistication and charm! He had a kids activity bag for my toddler and a great smile whenever he saw us. Luis, the guest services manager, was incredible. He was kind to my son and courteous to me and I look forward to going back The only downside was that the walls are extremely thin and I didn't get a wink of sleep due to an infant crying ever 1.5-2 hours lasting 20 minutes each time. At one point I phoned the front desk at 4am and begged them to send the room next door some warm milk and charge it to me. Lol I would definitely make sure I request not to be next to an infant room. It's a shame too because the bedding was so comfortable and under normal circumstances, I bet I would have had an amazing sleep! I look forward to returning! Nadia

"What a great location!"

01/11/2017

I enjoyed a terrific-but-too-short, two-night stay. From the moment I set foot in the lobby, the staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and welcome. Free covered parking is a nice plus. Just park and you can walk to the beach (right across the street) or to the Village for restaurants, shops, bars, wine tasting - a quick two blocks away. The room was very clean. I had a balcony with a partial ocean view. Honestly, for as much time as I spent out there (too busy enjoying Carlsbad), not sure it was worth it for me. And everyone can enjoy the great, unobstructed ocean view from the deck off the breakfast room. What a nice area to catch a sunset, relax, enjoy coffee, etc. The bed was comfortable. Wifi worked well everywhere on the property. The bathroom was small but functional. Even good quality toilet paper. The breakfast area was immaculate and well stocked with fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea, cereal, oatmeal, juice. I would go back in a heartbeat!

The entire experience was very nice except there was no hot water in the shower. Still a beautiful place. Very friendly. Large room with fireplace, nice continental breakfast, beautiful ocean view. Large TV, peaceful, good parking, nice patio and breakfast room. Would stay there again if reassured there would be hot water.. Very nice.

Stayed 5 nights for a wedding/LEGOLAND/beach time with the family. Having a separate room was perfect for the family. Bathroom was a little small but the size of the hotel room (with kitchen) made up for the bathroom. Hotel is a bit aged but ties in with the beach experience. A good family vacation spot!

"Great Hotel"

23/10/2017

This hotel is right across from the beach! Literally! :) It also had a pool and hot tub which weren't big, but worked great for our purposes. The breakfast was pre-packaged, but they had a sign up that they were remodeling their kitchen, so by code they had to serve only pre-packaged food until the kitchen was finished. With the ocean view right out of the dining room, any food would've been fine! The beds were very comfortable which you know isn't always the case other places. The windows didn't block noise within the courtyard very well -- they're older and the first night we were woken up by people talking as they walked by and they weren't even talking very loudly. The following nights we just used a white noise app on our phone and that took care of the problem. We slept great! Free parking was a nice touch because space is at such a premium that close to the beach. We were also able to easily walk to several restaurants, souvenir shops, and a convenience store, so that was nice.

Location is fantastically right across from the beach with ocean view from the terrace to watch the waves and sunsets, Front desk staff Prudence and Angela were very gracious and cheerfully answered all questions. I was greeted with a smile every morning by Dorthy and was warmly assisted with food and service in the breakfast room. Accommodations were quite comfortable and clean. Pool and spa looked very clean, although I didn't try them. Located on the edge of the Village and in walking distance to great restaurants and shops. I would definitely stay here again if in Carlsbad!

If you are planning a trip to Carlsbad this is the perfect hotel. The staff is amazing and always so cheerful. It's right across the street from the beach. Located within walking distance from many restraints and shopping. There is no need to drive anywhere else. One our favorite things was waking up early to watch the sunrise on the hotels patio overlooking the ocean. We had a wonderful time and we will definitely return again.

Enjoyed a weeklong stay at this near the beach hotel. While a somewhat dated building it has been tastefully remodeled. Nevertheless it is a very clean and relaxing establishment. Hotel staff are very helpful, especially Prudence (Hotel Supervisor) who was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.

16/10/2017

Love the location and sitting on the deck watching the ocean. Also love the craftsman style architecture of the main building. Standard king room was large and comfortable. Bathroom commode and shower/tub room is tiny but adequate. Separate sink and mirror area is spacious but could use better lighting. Balconies do not face ocean, but you can see ocean to the side. Continental breakfast is adequate, but made up for by beautiful deck and lovely indoor,ocean-facing room. You are on busy road, just across from beach, but with a/c on, we weren't bothered by road noise. Have stayed here 3x and never disappointed. Rooms all face inner courtyard, and free parking is a plus. Altogether, very good experience!

This hotel is literally right across the beach and walking distance to everything, food and shopping. They even have boogie boards you can use at the beach. Good price for beach front hotel. Rooms are good size and you can jump in the pool or jacuzzi right after coming back from the beach! has a great sun room to watch the sunset or outside dining. You don't have many choices to select from the complimentary continental breakfast.

Excellent stay! From check in to check out it was awesome. Prudence and Joan at the desk, and Irene at breakfast, were so friendly and helpful. The building is clean and well kept. The rooms are updated and clean, and very spacious. The 2nd floor patio overlooking the ocean was incredible. We spent many hours there lounging. They have beach gear readily available - sand toys, towels, chairs, umbrella, boogie board. The location is ideal. A safe and easy crossing of the street and you're at a clean (no seaweed!), manicured beach. A block north and you're in the center of darling Carlsbad village, where there are tons of restaurants and shops. We strolled every night. 7-11 is right next door, which is convenient. Across the street and running for miles south is a wide sidewalk where you can walk/run along the beach. Carlsbad is adorable, this hotel is in a prime spot. I can't wait to come back!

Hotel was clean with a friendly staff. Right across the street from the ocean with a ramp to get down to the ocean.

My husband & I come to Carlsbad to escape the Las Vegas heat and enjoy the ocean several times per year. We have stayed on several properties in the Carlsbad/Oceanside area. This BW Plus Beach View Lodge is in a FABULOUS LOCATION! The front desk staff enjoy working at this newly renovated facility. The Common Outdoor Gathering Area (2nd floor) is IDEAL for relaxing & watching the sunset. The option of eating breakfast (7-10 am) each morning while enjoying the sights and sounds of the ocean is a favorite amenity. Covered parking. Elevators. We will DEFINITELY be coming back to BW Plus Beach View Lodge the next time we visit Carlsbad! Thank you!

It was great to find a place right across the street from the beach. This lodge has a nice deck area at the front so you can sit and overlook the ocean. Parking spots are tight, so if you have a large vehicle it can be very tight. They offer a free continental breakfast, not great, but decent. They let guests check out for free beach items such as chairs, umbrellas, towels, boogie boards, and sand toys. That was a great benefit especially since we had flown into California and couldn't pack beach items. The room was clean. The restroom wasn't very spacious, but it did the job. Overall, I would recommend visiting this location.

So my parents, who live in Ohio, first found this hotel on a short trip they took from our house in Riverside. Last time we came this hotel was booked, so this time I made sure we could get in. What a great location, you can walk to everything in downtown Carlsbad from here. They were super friendly at check in, we got a king bed with balcony and somewhat of an ocean view, but we haven't really been in our room. Spent the day directly across the street at the beach, great access. And the hotel,has towels, chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas anything you would need for beach so you don't have to pack it and bring it they have it. The room is updated, clean ,and has a nice balcony. Would stay again when we come back.

When we arrived at the hotel was disappointed as it really didn't look like the pictures online. We checked in and was assigned a room and I can only describe the room as dark and depressing! We did everything we could do to not spend time in the room which was unfortunate. The room was included breakfast which having just come from an embassy suites we thought would include hot food. Everything that was offered came out of a plastic wrapper. For the price of the room we were very disappointed

Dear nohara1966, Thank you for sharing your recent experience with us. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. In regards to our rooms, they have been very popular with our guests and we feel we provide a value considering our ideal beach location. Breakfast has changed recently. For many years we were grandfathered into many older permits, but unfortunately the health department has had many changes this past year that we have fallen victim to. We have been told we are only allowed to serve prepackaged breakfast until we put in a full kitchen. We apologize for the inconvenience this has brought to our guests and are trying to accommodate the best we can while following the health departments rules. The good news is that our architectural plans have just recently been approved and we are going to have a beautiful new kitchen. Our goal is to have this done by the end of fall and go back to our breakfast that our guests have come to love. I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience.

I enjoyed my stay at this Best Western. The location is outstanding. You literally just need to cross the street and you are on the beach. The hotel offers beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, beach toys and boogie boards free of charge. Free Parking and Breakfast is an excellent bonus! My room was a bit dark but not a big issue as we were really only in it to sleep. It is within walking distance to many places to eat and shop. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. The rooms seemed spacious. The usual breakfast I've come to expect from Best Western has been temporarily suspended until they can upgrade their kitchen. Given that this privilege was revoked three days prior to our arrival I felt the hotel did a good job in providing a wide variety of prepackaged breakfast items. Beautiful views of the ocean from the breakfast area. I truly enjoyed my stay here. One more thing, and its just me but the gas fireplace with the low flame flicker kind of creeped me out. I would have liked to be able to turn off the fireplace completely but they said it was like a pilot light. Besides, who needs a fireplace in sunny California??

We stayed here from the 3rd-5th of July. The hotel staff was above and beyond accomodating to us. We had our 1 yr old granddaughter who desperately needed to get a nap in and so they made sure we were able to check in several hours early so that could happen. Additionally, the staff made sure that all 3 of our rooms were right next to each other. They were so friendly, welcoming and professional. Its been a while since we've had such a positive experience from a hotel and its staff from the start to the end. The location is the best in Carlsbad. Just minutes to restaurants, bars and shopping. The beach is right across the street and at the hotel you can relax on their porch and enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sunset in the evening. We've been coming to this hotel since we had our young sons and now one of our sons brought his daughter to enjoy. There will be many more stays at this hotel in the future.

We booked this forth of July getaway to enjoy the peacefulness of Carlsbad Village. We go every year and this was our first and last time staying at this hotel. Our room was never cleaned and fresh linen and towels were never brought up. My wife had to go to the desk and ask for clean towels. There was a family with kids staying there and they were extremely loud but hotel services never did anything about the noise.

Dear danaj888, Thank you for sharing your recent experience with us. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. Please note that all rooms are cleaned between the hours of 9am and 5pm. If there is a preferred time, we always encourage our guests to request service when it is the most convenient for them. During the summer our hotel hosts many families and guests. For guests looking for a quiet getaway I like to suggest coming during our off seasons. The weather is still great, and the hotel and beaches are less crowded. Your experience with our customer service concerns me. We continuously receive prestigious awards putting our hotel in the top 5% regarding customer service and we hold our staff to a very high standard. With that said It is clear that our staff failed to “wow” you and we fell short in exceeding your expectations during your stay. Your satisfaction is important to us and we will be using the feedback you gave us to implement improvements to ensure we offer a better experience for guests in the future.

The best part of the property was the food court facing the ocean. We ate breakfast and had drinks on the bridge contiguous to the lounge. The view was spectacular. The rooms were ordinary, but the location is very good.

We stay at the Beachview Lodge every year for at least a week in one of the suites and have now for about 7 years. Its perfect for our family of 4 and close to everything! Especially the beach & village downtown.

The Best Western Beach View Lodge is located directly across the street one of the most beautiful beaches in north San Diego. It is a very clean and comfortable hotel. The staff is just wonderful!! We came to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was just a perfect few days!!!

We absolutely agree with you! Our beach is so dreamy and it sounds like you were able to enjoy it. Thank you for the lovely review and for choosing to celebrate your husband's birthday with us. We look forward to seeing you again next year!

We recently enjoyed a great family reunion staying at the Best Western in Carlsbad, CA. Prudence and her staff went out of their way to get to know us and provide us with everything we needed for fun in the sun at the ocean just across the street. The beach was not crowded and we all had a great time.

"Location and great staff"

22/06/2017

We spent 6 nights here with other family and really enjoyed the location and the very nice staff. It's right across the street from the beach and you can walk within minutes of Carlsbad Village ships and restaurants. The breakfast has several choices and the catering staff was great. This is not a fancy hotel but you'd pay a lot more for a location like this at other chain hotels.

We had a great time at this hotel. It was very clean and the ladies running the front lobby were fantastic. They had great ideas of fun things to do and great places to eat. I will definitely stay here again.

Location was perfect - walking distance to Carlsbad village. Across the road from the beach with a great view from the lounge deck. The bed was super comfortable and the staff bent over backwards to help out (we got an early check in) - they were all very friendly and helpful. Couldn't have asked for a better start to our holiday.

"Policy over loyalty"

14/06/2017

Been a long time visitor to this property. Overall, have loved it. But this year, several weeks after booking a weekend visit, we received news our 9-year-old grandson has a rare, aggressive cancer. In dealing with this, his parents needed us on weekends for the foreseeable future. So I called to cancel our reservations. We had made them online, with a no-cancelation rule. In calling the hotel, to explain our situation, I was told we can not cancel. It was against policy. Even though are (were) loyal, nearly annual visitors. They offered to hold our $1,000 room fee for later in the summer. But we will not be scheduling any summer trips until we know the fate of our grandson, so we were in essence losing the $1,000. So we arranged alternative help for our children that weekend and made our visit. To say the least, it was not an enjoyable one under the circumstances. We will return to Carlsbad every summer, like we always do. But we no longer will consider staying at this hotel, were policy trumps customer loyalty. What a shame -- for both the hotel and us.

Angela W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Dear dhenninger99, We are so saddened to learn about the condition of your grandson.  Many of us have experienced family or friends struggle with cancer and know the challenges and triumphs that come with such a battle.  Please know we will be rooting for him (and for you)!   As with any hotel, we have policies that govern how rates are sold so that we may offer the best rates possible. Such was the rate you purchased, one that offered a substantial discount in exchange for a set of dates that may not be changed.  I am encouraged that we offered to flex enough by allowing different dates of arrival, but I'm truly sorry we did not go far enough under the difficult circumstances you were facing.  Though we have a duty to enforce our rules, we are a family run concern that values unique circumstances, loyalty, and doing the right thing.  We're truly sorry that we did not excel in applying these principles in your interactions with us.  Having discussed the situation with our team, I would like to discuss it directly with you.  Please let me know the best way to contact you or call me directly at 760.729.1151

RELAX on the ocean facing deck, wander down to the village for excellent food and drink. Enjoy and RELAX. Step into the ocean across the street, on the cleanest beach on the coast. Less people and great weather make you want to RELAX.

Stayed only one night but already are planning to come back again. The location is unbeatable. Literally across the street from the ocean. And within a 5 minute walk of Carlsbad village with shops, restaurants, and bars. The supervisor, Prudence, was very welcoming and even gave me some tips on where I should go for my morning jog. The free breakfast in the morning was very good, especially when eating on the deck or inside with the ocean front view. We will definitely be back!

"Good location"

18/05/2017

This hotel has a good location across the state beach. The room I stayed in (king bed on the 3rth floor) is clean and spacious. The partial ocean view is only from the balcony and it's obstructed by the street lights and electric power lines. The whole building is dated and looks like it needs some improvement to catch up with time. Watch your step when walking into the room because the floor is not even. Breakfast is below average. No scrambled eggs, potatoes, sausage or bacon. Egg sandwich is soggy. So, it's OK to stay for a couple days but I would definitely look for a better place even if I would have to pay a little more.

The Manager is a hoot! So welcoming. Room was GREAT, only downside, no ocean view, but they have a full on Ocean View patio with tables and chairs to watch Sunset. Close to walk to EVERYTHING! Highly Recommend staying here. Reasonable price for the weekend.

I was told the room had a ocean view! We had to step out to the balcony and lean out to see the ocean! Not what I expected!You might want to change the wording "View"! Would not recommend this hotel! The grounds were clean but out dated! The front desk clerk was very nice and helpful!

Angela W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Dear SoCalELE, Thank you for taking a moment and sharing your recent experience with us. Thank you for the accolades regarding our friendly front desk. I do apologize that the view did not meet your expectations. Though we do not have any full/beach front rooms at our property, our ocean balcony rooms are advertised as partial views from the balconies which have been very popular with our guests along with our ideal beach location. We recently completed the renovation of all of our guest rooms, including the replacement of everything from carpet and furniture to paint, linens and the bathrooms. With that said, please know your satisfaction is important to us and we will be using the feedback you gave us to implement improvements to ensure we offer a better experience for guests in the future. We hope you will give us another chance in the future to provide you with superior customer service. If there is anything that I may do to assist you, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at 760-729-1151.

The hotel is directly across the Carlsbad State Beach and from some balconies, you can get a glimpse of the ocean. The rooms are spacious and have the standard amenities. Mine, a King room, had a microwave and fridge which was very helpful. The best thing about it is the location. You can simply cross the street and walk across to the beach and enjoy the ocean. Great views of the ocean from the breakfast room and sun desk and a very friendly and helpful staff.

My girl friend and I spent one (1) night here while driving the coast. What a find! A reasonable price, very good amenities, and an exceptional location.

Wow, great hotel. Directly across from the beach. Great for families because of the easy access. Small hotel feels very quaint. Rooms for very nice beds were heavenly. Side view of the ocean from the balcony. Parking was the best part. Covered and direct access to the hotel interior through a locked door. The staff was wonderful especially Prudence. She was such a delight, funny and so accommodating. She even let us stay in the parking lot after we checked out so we could enjoy the day at the beach. What a plus. Highly recommended but book early because it's tough to get a reservation!

We checked out of a hotel earlier than expected and found this one. Everything about it was perfect. The room was a great size with comfortable beds for us all. The location was perfect, the pool and hot tub were lovely. The staff (especially Prudence) were friendly and great fun. The reception lent out body boards for the kids and beach chairs. Breakfast was simple but perfect! Well worth a visit. Carlsbad itself had plenty of restaurants and bars to go to. We ended up sat listening to live bands in one bar - brilliant night.

Super friendly staff, Prudence helping us with our luggage when my husband hurt his back and Seferino bringing his own vehicle around to jump start our dead battery.

This is an older property that is well-maintained. Vintage, not dated. The amenities are modest, but are commensurate with the lodging category. Staff is efficient and engaging. The Guest Lounge is a very nice touch, serving as a free-breakfast venue and a comfortable meeting place at other times throughout the day. The adjacent sun deck is perfect for taking in a sunset or two. Our room was very clean - and the guest room attendants were, well, attentive! A special thanks to Joan who ran the front desk during swing shift. She was helpful at every turn (even taking time to assist us before her shift began one day). The location along Carlsbad Blvd. seemed perfect for foot travel. Parking is a bit tight, but free parking is free parking. I was quite satisfied with the value I received. I cannot imagine how the experience could have been improved upon. It was an excellent four-day escape from the desert. I would certainly stay there again.

The location is brilliant, just yards from the beach and a short walk to Carlsbad Village.

"Don't be fooled by the website pictures"

01/11/2016

Be careful to really look at the pictures touted on the hotel website. I thought for the price I paid I was getting something updated, plush and on (near) the beach. It advertised "ocean views" and found that it did if you hang over the balcony of your room. The breakfast was good and the rooms....just ordinary rooms. However the housekeeping staff leaves plenty of useful amenities every day in your bathroom.

Dear Carol I, Thank you for taking a moment and sharing your recent experience with us. Your accolades regarding our housekeeping staff is greatly appreciated. I apologize that the view from your room did not meet your expectations. I am also concerned to learn that you feel our rooms are out dated. We recently completed the renovation of all rooms including carpet, paint, furniture, linens and bathrooms. Regarding our beach location, we are located directly across the street from the beach and in walking distance to many restaurants and boutiques. Please know that I have reviewed the description of our room as a south facing balcony with partial ocean views. We would never want to purposely mislead anyone when planning a stay with us.

My daughter recently moved to the area and I just lucked out picking out this particular hotel. All the staff at here are very professional, courteous, and helpful. Rooms were very clean and beds were very comfortable. I stayed 11 days, and each day offered a wide variety complimentary breakfast. I loved the location, and the view of the beach. I have already told three family members about this Best Western to stay here when coming to Carlsbad.

Well maintained older motel across the street from ocean and a really nice long boardwalk. Close to Carlsbad Village Drive, restaurants and shops. Comfortable clean rooms. Larger than most - the King Partial ocean view was 300+ sq feet. View was of Pine Street with ocean blocked by a tree so really the choice is between having a balcony or a fireplace. Best view is from the breakfast room & outdoor O.V. deck. Enjoyed the complimentary morning coffee & breakfast. Friendly staff. Covered parking is open air, narrow spots and unsecured.

We reserved an ocean view room from Hotels.com. Our view was that of a construction zone and if you stuck your neck out on your balcony and turned right, you could see the ocean. That's not what we paid for. We paid for an ocean view room. We were very disappointed especially when the clerk suggested that it was Hotels.com's problem and not theirs. The hotel itself is clean and the bed was super comfortable.

Pros: This hotel is in a great location! The beach is just across the street. The village full of shops & restaurants is within a short walking distance so you don't need to drive your car & lose your parking space at the hotel. Parking is free! Nice staff. Cons: Although the hotel has been renovated a year or so ago, some of the work was kind of shoddy. There was a big hole in the wall under our bathroom sink. The sofa bed was extremely squeaky & appeared dirty. The suite felt dark & dirty & not comfy at all. We stayed in a family suite with a partial ocean view but i feel like the extremely high cost we paid for 2 nights was not worth it. Very disappointed!

If you're looking for an affordable beach location, this is it. The rooms don't overlook the ocean directly but it can be viewed from some of the balconies. Realistically, you want to walk on the beach or view it from the oceanside walk anyway. The hotel is directly across from the beach and the 2nd floor patio area allows you to sit and watch the ocean, sunsets and/or passers-by very comfortably. Clean, comfortable and friendly staff.

They allow you to check out beach gear (umbrella, chairs, kids toys). Only thing, I wished there was a convenience store with basics. We ran out of water the last day and had to go around the corner to 7-Eleven, not a biggie. Not a lot to complain about, for sure!!!!

We are so happy we decided to stay at this Hotel. We were visiting Legoland but wanted to wake up at the beach. Perfect location and the friendliest staff. We were arriving late and had called before to let them know. They said they had staff available 24 hours. We arrived without trouble were quickly given our room and told where to park. The parking as great with door access directly from parking to inside courtyard area, so we didn't have to walk all the way around to the front of the building. We had a king room that worked well for our family. The room was so nice, clean, comfortable and spacious. We had a room facing the road and a view of the ocean. The bed was so comfortable. We enjoyed some Tazo tea in our room as our son had caught a cold and wanted something warm to drink. I even went to the front desk to ask for more tea. They let me go to the breakfast room to get more tea and cups. Breakfast is excellent. Good coffee and great choices. I liked the fresh strawberries and blueberries. My boys enjoyed the breakfast sandwiches. The view from the breakfast room is amazing. We didn't stay long as we wanted to get down to the beach. Just across the street.

This hotel is literally right across the street from the Ocean. Military friendly with reduced rates and the grounds and rooms are immaculate. The breakfast gets 5 stars for variety, freshness, and location overlooking the Ocean. We stayed 5 nights and did not want to leave. Pack your bags, leave your troubles behind and come relax in paradise with this Best Western!

I would like to see Hard boiled eggs at breakfast and Kleenex in the rooms. My nose tends to run when I'm at the beach and I had to us toliet paper to blow my nose. I liked the coziness of the smaller facility.

This Best Western hotel is right across the street from a great public beach in Carlsbad. It also has a really nice deck with chairs and tables where you can sit and eat breakfast while looking out at the ocean and beach. Service was great and you can check out beach chairs, umbrellas, kids beach toys, towels, body boards, etc for free. Beach lovers dream. They do have a laundry room where you need $2 in quarters for the washer and $1.50 for the dryer, but don't open the door on the dryer unless you think the clothes are dry. The room was pretty good with sufficient room and a decent bathroom. Free parking with tight spaces. The room was clean and housekeeping was very good. My family will stay at this location each time we visit San Diego County.

This place is truly a hidden gem in the SD Area - our 2nd time staying here and would absolutely go again. The king room is spacious & the beds are extremely comfortable- our room had a fireplace, fridge, microwave & small safe too. The view from the deck is wondrerful & new tables make it very easy to enjoy AM to sundown. They have beach chairs,umbrellas & boogie boards availble for check out this year- Very nice touch! Breakfast is clean & good coffee available all day- small observation>could use more protein (scrambled eggs?) but over all- LOVED our entire stay!!

My husband, two-year-old son, and I stayed for three nights. Every employee we crossed paths with was very friendly, and Prudence at the front desk was helpful, cheerful, and very friendly. The hotel is in the perfect location for accessing the beach or walking into Carlsbad Village for coffee, food, or shopping. In fact, there are great food and ice cream locations within an extremely short walk, and the beach access is literally across the road. The terrace is perfect for hanging out, viewing the ocean, and people watching. The continental breakfast is more than adequate--pastries, fresh fruit, muffins, yogurt, cereal, pancakes, hot sandwiches, juice, coffee, hot chocolate. The rooms were very clean--we even moved an armchair to set up our pack n play, and the ground beneath it was clean. I was impressed. And there were always staff members out in the hallways cleaning. The beds were comfortable, and it was pretty quiet. I slept better here than I have at a lot of other places! We would stay here again.

Awesome location if going to the beach as it is directly across the street. We have been to nearly every major beach in southern California and the Carlsbad beaches are honestly among the nicest. Very clean, great waves and sand, and not too crowded. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We were even able to use the hotel's boogie boards at no cost which was super cool. Breakfast is pretty good, but don't expect too much. Other Best Westerns we have stayed at have had a little more selection, but there was still enough to get your fill. They also were able to accommodate gluten allergies which was very much appreciated. The hotel is also a little older than a lot of other Best Westerns we have stayed at, but still has that Best Western look and feel of cleanliness and class. The hotel is also great walking distance to Carlsbad Village. We have 2 little girls and the walk was probably less than 15 minutes. Would definitely stay again.

"WEEKEND IN CARLSBAD WITH BEACH VIEW ROOM"

27/07/2016

We checked in on Saturday at approx. 6 pm. The front of the hotel was nice. Of course, it is the front. The front had a nice view of the Ocean and beach. Right across the street. My room was on the front side of the building, looking south. The view, which I was told was a beach view, was not exactly true. Open the curtains and you saw the building next door. I had to go out on the balcony and look right (west) to see the water. Not really a beach front view. But, that was the selling point for me. So, for $300 per night on the two rooms, we have Free Bernie guests in our room. Both room had free loaders, ants, and I told the front desk clerk the next morning. Hopefully she got the exterminator in there before the next people came in. Overall, it was a nice stay. I do not think they should say you get a view of the beach unless you can see the beach from your room without going outside. But, that is my opinion. It is way better than the Best Western we stayed at Friday at Disneyland.

Angela W, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Dear Mark W, Thank you for taking a moment and sharing your recent experience with us. I do apologize that the view from your room did not meet your expectations. All our balcony rooms have south facing balconies with partial views to the west. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed our common deck. The full view of the ocean is beautiful from there. Please be assured that we made sure that there were no ants in the rooms for the arriving guests. I am happy that you had an overall enjoyable stay with us and we hope to see you again in the near future. Again, thank you for your much appreciated feedback. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at 760-729-1151.

26/07/2016

Prudence was welcoming and very pleasant during the check in service and making sure we were warmly welcomed. She is an excellent representative for quality customer service. The one struggle that I had with thee hotel is that I had an broken ankle and was on crutches. While there is ADA parking and a manner to get to the elevator you cannot get to the breakfast room or the patio lounge area unless you negotiate stairs. So it is not wheelchair accessible or very crutch friendly. I was quite surprised being a Best Western. The bathroom was exceptionally small so I had to take a sink shower that was a good level for cleaning up. The room was clean the breakfast after I hoped down 7 steps was continental but adequate. When we parked in the handicap parking it was so close to other cars there was no way to get a wheelchair between the cars to get to the elevator. Very close quarters. I was surprised while the room was clean and small the porch partial view of the ocean was not great. It was not a patio that I would want to sit, read or have a glass of wine to enjoy the ocean view. Yes its a partial view but not spectacular. The location is good near all that you need for the Carlsbad experience.

Angela W, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Dear jyh531, Thank you for taking a moment and sharing you recent experience with us. The accolades regarding Prudence are greatly appreciated. She is an exceptional representative of our team.

As a team we do try to our best ability to place guests in rooms that will best accommodate their needs. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed our location and its close proximity to all Carlsbad has to offer. Thank you again for your much appreciated feedback.

Great hotel and the staff was probably the best part! The provided great customer service which is rare. Loved that it's right across from the beach and can walk to restaurants and shopping in downtown Carlsbad. Had a suite which was very nice and roomy along with the pool, hot tub and great breakfasts provided. Things to consider though is the limited garage parking as you may need to park in the surrounding residential area. Had no problem but prefer the better security with a garage. Also had significant issues with the cable TV service and was very frustrating resetting the adapter over and over to get reception. The staff did attempt to resolve and provided a minimal daily credit but would check to ensure the wiring issues have been corrected when you're paying that much for a room.

We stayed at this Best Western Plus over the 4th of July for two nights. Angela, the General Manager greeted us warmly and gave us some recommendations for places to dine in town. Every one of the staff members we met were very professional, helpful and friendly. Our room was on the third floor and we had a balcony with a direct view across the street to a construction project and a side view to the ocean. Since it was a holiday weekend there was no construction noise or interference. Our room was large, clean and well maintained. The large sun deck was perfect for sitting and watching the ocean, the passers-by, people flying kites and enjoying a drink or snack. The guest lounge where the continental breakfast was served was large and comfortable and the breakfast was plentiful and included a daily newspaper as well. Later in the afternoon you could also get fruit and coffee/tea from the lounge. There are covered parking spots for hotel guests. The location is perfect for beach walks and to local restaurants and shops. The only reason this property doesn't get a 5 is that the property could use a little updating including the hall carpets, bathroom, etc.

The location of this hotel makes it ideal if you want to spend time on the beach and walk the village.

Would be nice if the pool and spa were open later on weekends. I was not able to get into the spa. I chose this hotel over another similar priced one so that I could and was disappointed that it was always at capacity + kids

should have a back up plan, when elevator brakes. Elderly couple placed on 3rd floor, had to go down 3 flights of stairs to get to the car, and 2 flights to go eat breakfast Also breakfast was poor choices, for those following a high protein diet..

Dear Kathryn S, Hello and thank you for taking a moment to share your vacation experience with us. At times there are anomalies that happen that are out of our control. I do apologize that the elevator went down and the inconvenience that it caused you. I am very concerned to learn that you feel we did not take the appropriate action since we did have a back up plan in place. We called all our in house and incoming guests to inform them about the situation. We offered to room move guests with mobility issues to more accommodating rooms to the best of our ability with a sold out situation. We also had extra staff on hand to help with luggage and to bring breakfast to rooms. That being said, it is clear that our staff failed to “wow” you with our customer service in this situation.

It's a nice hotel, great location, with a good view from hotel deck. I recommend to get a room with balcony so you can have view to the beach. Breakfast is ok to get you going, just cereal and some pastries.

Angela W, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Dear Nelson C, Thank you for staying with us! I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed our location and view. We would love to invite you back again any time.

"Good option for Carlsbad"

21/06/2016

Any place on the beach is going to be expensive. This property was not fancy but certainly "just fine," considering the other options. The breakfast was of a higher quality than most free hotel continental breakfasts I've had. One negative: when we arrived at 10 p.m., there was no parking available! The front desk clerk moved her car for us to be able to park on the street. Whaaat? That seems kind of crazy to me that a late arriving guest would not have parking reserved on the property.

Angela W, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Dear Lisa S, Thank you for staying with us! I am happy to hear that you enjoyed our free breakfast. I do apologize for the parking situation. Summer is a busy time for us and the hotel including open parking fills up to capacity; our staff is always willing to give up a spot for our guests at anytime. Thank you again for taking a moment to share your experience with us and we hope to see you again in the near future.

"Awesome for Families!!!"

17/06/2016

The hotel is right across the street from Carlsbad State Beach making it easy for families to pack up their sandy toys for the afternoon and cross the street to the beach! We were also able to walk to dinner each night and walk to get coffee in the morning! Our kids loved playing in the pool! There were several families with children there too. We also enjoyed a picnic lunch on the deck area over looking the ocean...beautiful! The hotel offers a great breakfast (included with stay) that included pancakes, bagels, Danishes, breakfast sandwiches, fruit, yogurt, and flavored coffee creamer! The hotel also offers guests off street parking (free of charge), which is great by the beach! We will definitely be back again for another long weekend stay!!

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel across the road from the beach in Carlsbad California. The rooms are clean, the beds are great and their buffet breakfast is very nice. The breakfast room is facing the beach so it is a nice way to start the day. There is a nice pool, jacuzzi, and a deck with lounges facing the beach. You can enjoy the sun without the sand! The hotel is in walking distance the all the restaurants and night life in this lovely beach community. Give it a try.

I was so pleased with my stay here. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The hotel staff were so friendly. They bent over backwards to accommodate me and make sure I was happy with my stay. The best part is the location. It's literally steps from the beach and a short walk to the heart of Carlsbad Village. I will definitely stay here again.

Dear smilingswimmers, Knowing you had an enjoyable stay is truly rewarding for all of the staff here.

My feet were completely black from walking on the floors in the hotel room barefoot. I checked the others in the family and they were the same. It was disgusting. They need to shampoo their carpets. We put towels on the floor to walk on after the first day.

"No view of the beach"

07/06/2016

Reserved a room with a view of the beach. You could see the beach if you walked out into the balcony which really had a view of a driveway/alley and cranked your head so you could just barely see the beach. Very misleading in the description of the room. Room was musty, very small & outdated. Bathroom was tiny & the sink was outside of the bathroom in the hallway as if it was an after thought.

Angela W, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach View Lodge, responded to this review
Dear KCLabarbera, Hello and thank you for taking a moment to share your vacation experience with us. I would like to apologize that our room did not meet your expectations. I am concerned to learn that you feel our rooms are outdated. We recently completed the renovation of all of our guest rooms, including the replacement of everything from carpet and furniture to paint, linens and the bathrooms. I have also reviewed the description of our balcony rooms as a south facing Balcony with Partial Ocean Views so future guests are not mislead. I hope that you offer us another opportunity to “wow” you with our ongoing improvements. If there is anything that I may do to assist you, please do not hesitate to reach me at 760-729-1151.

Everyone was so friendly. The breakfasts were very tasty. They are right across the road from the beach. Our bed was very comfortable, and the room was clean. Parking was included and so easy! The only down side would be that one day, we returned to our room, and at 4 p.m. it still had not been cleaned. This delayed our dinner plans a bit. We used the hot tub several times--very nice. Another family said the pool was nicely heated as well.

Nice room, good side view of the ocean. Breakfast was good. Had a cool pancake maker. Better than making your own waffles and making a mess or burning them. Very clean eating area. Beds were comfy. The shower room is a bit snug since the sink is not connected in the same area. Not bad, I would stay there again. Maybe next time I am visiting my sister in O'side.

Hotel was right across from the beach. Really nice to wake up to the ocean view and walk down to the beach for some sand play time. Room was nice, clean. Balcony was pretty cool even if it wasn't at the front of the hotel. Side view is not bad. Parking was a big scary. Bit tight to fit in a truck. Good breakfast, loved the pancake maker. Kinda of missed the eggs and bacon or sausage options but they had that in the sandwich so I guess it was kinda the same thing.

Ideal location...beautiful view across the way to the ocean. Close to downtown and restaurants. Clean room, great beds. Excellent breakfast and friendly staff. I loved the fact that you could sit in comfortable chairs and watch the water. One complaint which we shared with the desk people. There is a step up into the room. There is no marking for this or warning anywhere. Most places are just walk into the room. When your arms are full, as mine were, you can trip...which I did and face planted onto the floor. My knee is still sore from the impact. Please be careful. Otherwise I would have given this the highest rating.

The location could not be better--directly across the street from State Park Beach and a short walk to shops and restaurants in the village. Deck on 2nd floor of hotel gives perfect view of ocean and beautiful sunsets. Balcony rooms do not have much view of ocean, but not really necessary since you're so close. All staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Rooms and all common areas of the property were immaculate. The hotel is older but VERY well maintained.

Perfect location across the street from the beautiful beach. Tons of restaurants and neat shops just a block or two away. Very nice people working here. Not a high end place but great for a relaxing stay. Not a resort, but a comfortable hotel. Nice continental breakfast and beautiful room to sit and eat and watch the ocean. Nice pool and hot tub. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. Fish restaurant across the street has great fish tacos. Three stories but there is an elevator. Carlsbad is a nice town and happy that we stayed there instead of Oceanside. People are super friendly. I sat and watched the surfers from the deck of the hotel. Don't pay more when you don't need too unless you are expecting resort amenities.

Dear ChristinaTwinCities, Thank you for taking a moment and sharing your recent experience with us! All your complements regarding our staff, hotel and location are greatly appreciated.

I stayed here for 2 weeks while on business. The staff couldn't do enough to help and Prudence, the manager, was an absolute star and even arranged for someone to do my laundry for me while I was at work. Views out over the beach. a nice stroll into the village with restaurants and shops. Would highly recommend this hotel both for business and pleasure. Nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful balcony to sit on for watching the sun sets over the sea. Breakfast plentiful and all you can need. As a woman travelling alone I felt so comfortable and safe firstly in the hotel but also in the area, I was walking out at night and didn't feel unsafe at all.Would love to return for pleasure one day. If you want to chill out and relax then this is the place.

I thought this location was a very peaceful quiet place to stay. I was in town for a conference at a large resort and decided to stay off property so I could be near the beach. Best decision I made.

Hard to beat this location! It is directly across the street from the beach. Even if you don't have a room with a balcony to take a peek from a side view of the beach simply walk a few feet to their deck or breakfast room, and wha-la! You can see the waves and enjoy a magnificent sunset! You really can't put a price on that. Every hotel staff person I dealt with from the front desk to the housekeeping person who brought me toothpaste had a smile on their face and were extremely helpful. The only downside for me was there were only hot pancakes you could make and no other hot dish was available. There is however, The Daily News Cafe just one block up the street serves great breakfast and lunch food. This Best Western Plus was quite a surprise for me. It's almost a hidden gem, but located right across from the beautiful Carlsbad Beach and a very short walk to the town area! It's worth the price! Their pool is small, but heated. The jacuzzi is VERY small, but they have one.

Stayed two nights with a friend, in town to visit the Village Faire. Great location, easy walking distance to beach (across street), Carlsbad Village and lots of restaurants. Nice little breakfast buffet with a great view of the ocean. Well maintained property and very clean, and LOVE the free covered parking! Only thing weird is the strange bathroom space, which desperately needs updating and better light (it WAS clean, however.) Beds were good. The staff was exceptionally friendly, from the front desk to the housekeepers.

Carlsbad is one of our all-time favorite getaway spots, but we all know beach hotels are pricier than the rest. As a result, we've always chosen to stay further away from the beach to save some money. I have always noticed this facility because of its close proximity to the beach and our favorite fish restaurant and people-watching spot. We're so glad we decided to pay a bit more and stay here! The staff sincerely took an interest and cared for us more than most. You would've thought Prudence was welcoming us into her home. She went out of her way in little ways that meant a lot. She found the coffee creamers we love, got some beach chairs and towels for us to use and was warm and welcoming on several occasions. It's not often you leave a hotel, feeling like you've made a friend you can call in the future! The room was clean and airy and the breakfast was nice, with healthy choices and the breakfast room had the most incredible elevated and panoramic view of the Pacific! The pool and hot tub were fine and like I said, the location COULD NOT BE BETTER! This is definitely the place to stay on our subsequent visits!

We would come back in a heart beat. We booked a suite with kitchen and a separate bedroom and, though expensive, was worth having the extra living space. Walking to the beach, shops and to good restaurants was easy

Our accommodations were very nice. The beds were so comfortable with a choice of pillows. The staff could not have been more helpful and fun. We had family who lived close by and are are in wheel chairs so it wasn't very accessible for them but we made it work. They just came to visit not stay. Otherwise, our staff was perfect. Thank you for a very nice time.

We stayed in a 2-room suite for a night during a trip to Legoland. The hotel is very close to the shore and the room had a nice view from the living room, though it lacked a balcony which is something that most other rooms have. We didn't take advantage of the pool or hot tub, but the folks that were using it seemed to be enjoying it. The continental breakfast satisfied everyone. The staff were friendly and courteous. I want to give a special thumbs up for Joan. We left a stuffed animal prize behind when we left the hotel, and by the time we noticed it was gone, the room had been occupied by the next set of guests. Joan at the front desk looked around to see if it had been brought in, but didn't find it either. Several days later, I received a phone call from a strange, exotic 760 area code. It was Joan calling to tell me that they had found the toy. She had remembered talking to me about it and took charge of contacting me to arrange to have it shipped. We really appreciate her efforts.

Let me some it up and say that this hotel is very conveniently located right across the beach and walking distance to gift shops/restaurants. The staff was super nice and friendly which was a big plus. Irene who serves breakfast every morning always had a big smile and was very welcoming. I will be staying in this hotel on my next visit to Carlsbad.

Our family traveled to Carlsbad to attend a wedding and wanted a convenient location. This Best Western is across the street from the ocean and large public waterfront park with sidewalks and a paved path on the beach. Downtown is only a few blocks away and easily walkable. The hotel includes a hot breakfast. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. Unfortunately the weather was rainy during our stay so we didn't use the small pool or hot tub, located in the center of the property. We felt this property was a good value for the price.

This was probably the 5th time I have stayed at this motel. It has been great every time. It's probably somewhat older, but has been re-modeled and updated extremely well. The rooms are large and in good condition. Parking is very convenient. The best feature is the location, overlooking the Pacific, right across the street from a public beach. The only negative--some nearby construction was loud and started kind of early in the morning. Other than that, no problems at all.

We stayed here because it is across the street from the beach in Carlsbad, California. You can park your car and walk across the street to the beach, to wonderful restaurants, many quaint shops and the Coaster commuter train between Oceanside and San Diego. (We've taken the Coaster to get to the San Diego Zoo and go whale watching. No need to fight traffic or find a parking place! Affordable too!)

My husband and I like to pop over to the ocean for a few days when we are in Phoenix. Carlsbad/Oceanside is an area we enjoy. Came across this hotel in January for the first time and loved it! The breakfast room and adjoining rooftop patio were our favourite part. Gorgeous view of ocean. Although an older hotel it has been well kept and was very clean with nice linens. We could walk to everything and the beach boardwalk started right across the road from us. There is a small courtyard with a pool and hottub. We only made use of the hottub and it was actually hot. We would come back.

I was so happy to get the last room available at this hotel the day after Valentine's Day. We stayed in a king room right at the front of the hotel next to the deck overlooking the road and the beach. The room was very clean with a comfortable bed. We had breakfast there which had some good choices: pancakes, bread, pastries, toast, yogurt, fruit, coffee and fruit juice. They have a swimming pool and a jacuzzi. Very close to downtown and is very walkable.

I arrived at dusk, in a storm. By the time I found parking, and walked in the outdoors to my room in the rain, I was freezing, and damp. I could NOT find the light switch inside the room. The room was very cold, especially the bathroom. Because of faulty bathroom light switch not working, I did not realize until the next morning in the daylight, that the window in the bathroom was wide open, thus allowing the draft. Construction noise outside window, don't expect to sleep in.

As a couple wanting a few days away from the desert, we headed to the coast. The weather was perfect for a beach vacation. No reservation on a long weekend, we were very happy to get a room here. The staff were the happiest people I have met. Across from the beach and easy walking to the village. They have comfortable beds, quiet area and very clean. The breakfast which is included had fresh fruit, pancakes, pastries, yogurt, cereal and the view was fantastic.It was so nice you can take it outside and sit watching the ocean. The outlet mall is expanding and near the Flower fields. Also Legoland for kids. We highly recommend and will definitely stay here again.

Nice view of the water from outside but not the rooms. Rooms were very comfortable. Pool was nice and warm in February clean. Hot tub was dirty and foamy though so we decided it wasn't clean enough to use. Breakfast was just pastries, toast, pancakes you make yourself and a jimmy dean sandwich. It's better to eat else where. Easy access to the beach although you have to cross the road. Lots of restaurants near by. We were also happy it was a very friendly town that didn't mind tourist.

We stayed here for two nights, Mon.-Tues. and had a great time. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Grounds are very well maintained and staff around hotel were very friendly. The location is amazing, walk up and down the beach or walk a couple blocks and to all sorts of choices for food and a beer or two. Room itself was very clean and nicely remodeled. Bathroom shower/ toilet area is a little small but the sink area is good size. The only real issue was the wife said the closet was very musty smelling to the point we did not use it but for the price (~$90), you can't beat the location. As others have mentioned the top deck is awesome for sunsets. Be aware there is construction both to the South and North of the hotel and they start work at about 7:00-5:00. Oh we did see something really cool, a small whale spent most of the day hanging out in the surf, it was a pretty awesome sight. Yes, we will return for another staycation, plenty more places to eat and drink and get in some really good walking.

This is a great place for a good beach experience. Although you have to cross the road, the beach which is long and wide even at high tide in the winter is wonderful. There is a long sea wall walk and charming Carlsbad is closely. The rooms are spacious, the pool and spa clean and well situated but best of all is the second floor patio facing the ocean. The lounge where breakfast is served has the same aspect. The sunsets are memorable.

The view from the deck and their breakfast area is unobstructed. I did not partake in the complimentary breakfast but my other half said is was very good.

The beds and linens first class and comfortable. Breakfast was adequate with fresh fruit, breakfast sandwiches and bakery items. Coffee and tea available during the day. The interior courtyard ,heated pool and garden very nice. I walked on the beach in the morning and took photos of beautiful sunsets from the hotel deck. We really appreciated the parking garage.

Finishing up 3 night stay here. Started out with a 1 night reservation, extended to 3. The room was large, very clean and you can't beat covered free parking. The property is older, but very nicely updated and warm feeling in style. It's directly across from beach. Loved the constant use of the beach by locals and tourists. Great family atmosphere there. Took long morning walks.. Wonderful outdoor patio area to hang out and watch the sunset. The community room was inviting and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was served fresh and the attendant was cheerful and welcoming. The desk staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. The rooms do not face the beach, but a few steps to the outdoor patio or community room or to the crosswalk to the beach solves that. Great stay. Highly recommend.

The location is good for beach access and walking to restaurants. This was the 2nd Best Western location we stayed at on our holiday. Again, we were very disappointed with the incredibly small bathroom. There is a roof top area where you can sit outside which is a good feature. Rooms with view are only partial ocean view. I thought I may have left something in the room, so stopped in a few days later to inquire. I was promised I would hear back whether they found it or not. I never did hear anything. The price was average, but we ended up finding a room at a very nice place down the road which was 100x nicer and was actually less expensive.

We stayed one night back in May of 2015 on our last stop of our 10 year wedding anniversary. This place is now our go-to with our sons. It is literally across the street from the beach with no obstructions in your view. This is perfectly located if your a cyclist. You can hop right on the bike route and head down the coast. The breakfast is so handy to just get something in you right quick or to grab that nice cup of hot tea. I'd have to say the best part about this place (besides the unbelievably gracious staff) is the overlook balcony sitting area. You can enjoy the sunset from this vantage point and its truly spectacular. It isn't the cheapest but I'd say its definitely reasonable for all the perks.

Convenient location to walking the beach and downtown. I really enjoyed my stay. Our room had a fireplace, which was nice during the January stay. There is a deck that is perfectly position to watch the sunset over the Pacific.

We had a wonderful time staying at this hotel. Although every room does not have a beach view, there is an amazing lounge and deck on the second floor that has amazing beach views. We had some friends over and that is where we hung out, in front of the fire place and in the comfy sitting area. The location is perfect for night life, as it is located near Carlsbad Village. We walked to the bars and walked back to the hotel in a very short time, keeping it safe for the tipsy! Also, in the morning, we enjoyed a warm, tasty, breakfast. We are planning to stay here again soon.

Stayed there with my family on a visit to carlsbad. Awesome location, awesome breakfast. Although didnt have a clear view of the ocean, room was very clean, staff very helpful. And you can walk to all the good restaurants. You can just cross the road and spend time on beach or read a book in the Guest lobby overseeing the surf. Good one. I liked it.

My husband and I wanted to get away for a couple of days and chose to stay at the Best Western in Carlsbad. It was right on the beach and walking distance to the main part of town. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were lucky to be there on a Wed. afternoon so the farmer's market was in town. There are many restaurants to try and a great community theater that was wonderful. In the morning we walked along the beach and just enjoyed the view. The rooms are not glamorous, but they are clean and comfortable. You just can't beat the location. We had a great time

We walked the beach every morning after a fabulous 'included' breakfast with amazing views. The room was huge, clean and cozy. The beds and showers are always super. We didn't chose the balcony, but we did not need it, We were in room #30 steps from a wonderful deck that We drank beer on and watched the sunset.... so Great!.... From 'Check in to Check out.... everything was perfect... looking forward to staying again and again!

The location of the hotel along with the fantastic staff made this trip a joy. From the moment that we arrived late on Friday night to the midday check out on Tuesday the staff could not have done any more to make us feel welcomed. The room was of good size for two sisters traveling together and the guest lounge was a great way to start and end ones day. Prudence will put a smile on your face with just a simple "Hello!" I am home now sharing the GREAT experience that we had at this hotel (despite the difficult nature that brought us there) and can not wait to return in the summer.

Took a long weekend off from the Minnesota weather in SOCAL since that was the warmest and sunniest forecast in the contiguous US. We did not book any rooms in advance since we wanted to keep our options open. After one night in another Carlsbad hotel (love the town and the beach), we stopped in on Saturday afternoon and visited with Prudence the manager. She gave us a good rate for two nights and was very accommodating. Pluses: Chairs and towels for the beach, carport, breakfast included, a deck to lounge on, fireplace in the very comfortable room, cleanliness and location. We' definitely go back to this location.

"Comfortable lodging on the Pacific Ocean"

05/12/2015

An excellent location, right across from the Carlsbad Beach. Friendly staff and comfortable ambience. Our ocean-view room (#34) with two beds was clean as a whistle with cozy bedding, an easy chair, desk, microwave and fridge. A nice, wide balcony had ample room for two chairs and a view of the ocean. The public spaces are wonderful. A large deck with chaise lounges and tables to look out at the sunset on the ocean, next to a warm "lodge" type great room with a fireplace and comfy chairs, where breakfast is served. Friendly staff and reasonable price for the location. Ask for an ocean-view room on the south side of the building. The northside rooms only look over the courtyard and pool (these are cheaper if you're on a budget, and you can just go out to the deck for views, or right to the beach).

This hotel is right in the village of Carlsbad, across the street from a park at the beach, and withing walking distance of many cute shops and nice restaurants. (The train is also close by, but the various whistles are something I enjoy.) The hotel pool is in the shade, so no need for sunscreen! We loved the fresh sea air flowing in through our 3rd story balcony window. The Simmons Beautyrest bed in our room was very new and extremely comfortable, as were the pillows. Our room got plenty of light from the sun during the day, and at night the lighting, though bright enough to see by, was soft and flattering. In the shower/toilet room, there was an adjustable shower-head, and no fan needed because of the overhead window. Every staff person we met was in the right line of business. I felt like they really cared about the guests and enjoyed making us happy.

We had a five star experience at this hotel. From the moment we stepped into the hotel lobby to check in. Best Western has the most amazing employee named Prudence. The most exceptional service was given by her. I wish every establishment had employees like her. We were treated with warmth and professionalism. The location was perfect. My fiance and I has the best time. We were very sad to leave.

from the beautiful view of the ocean (which is about 50 steps away) to the luxurious bed pillows, this lodge is all about comfort. Add to that a very reasonable rate and you have a great bargain. The continental breakfast and all day coffee service is a big plus. Being able to cross one street and be at the beach and pay hillside prices is another. Stay here...you won't regret it

I enjoyed everything. The fireplace in the well-appointed room was icing on the cake. The room was wonderful, the bedding divine. Coffee was excellent. Bath amenities were nice. Breakfast was substantial and delicious. The newspaper was a nice touch while enjoying the magnificent view of the ocean. Pancake maker is a great idea and delicious pancakes. I liked the covered parking and the location could not have been better. A quick walk to the main shopping area and restaurants. My kudos go out to Prudence who handled my front desk requests with kindness and care. I was able to completely leave behind my worries and cares. This was a real vacation.

13/11/2015

Great location in the really beautiful and peaceful town of Carlsbad. From the hotel you could walk to Central Carlsbad for numerous restaurants, and shops of all types. We ate at Las Olas and had terrific Mexican food taking advantage of great lunch specials for $7.50. The Carlsbad Outlets are also a short 10 minute drive away. There is also a great sidewalk running along the ocean side of the street that goes at least 2 miles to the south which was so enjoyable to walk along in the night and in the morning. The nicest thing though was the hotel itself. The rooms on the south side have balconies which are nice to sit out and enjoy fresh air, view of ocean, however is only a partial view. At the front of the hotel on the second floor they have a lovely deck which has a marvelous, unobstructed view of the ocean which is right across the street. Breakfast was most certainly a notch above the typical continental fare and the woman watching over it was very friendly and did a great job keeping things stocked. The manager Prudence was wonderful and was so helpful in accommodating my reservation changes twice! We will definitely return when we want to get away to a place of peace, quiet, with the ocean only steps away!

This is a nice central location we used before our cruise that started in Long Beach. The hotel has nice large rooms. It is clean, quiet and across the street from the beach. On our stay it was too cold to use the hot tub or pool but they looked attractive. They have a nice patio overlooking the ocean. It is nice to have a reasonable breakfast on site. It was an easy day trip to San Diego and there are a number of attractions up and down the coast for longer stays. We always compare with Airbnb and this price was better when you take into account that there is breakfast and no cleaning charge.

"deck with a view"

12/11/2015

Stayed only 2 nights. Room was spacious with a gas fireplace. Looked like it was recently renovated. Had a nice little chair with ottoman and reading lamp that I greatly appreciated since hubby wanted to retire early and I wanted to read. The common deck at the front of the motel on the second floor was also a great place to relax and read, chat with other travelers, have a glass of wine while watching beautiful sunsets. The continental breakfast was adequate and enough to hold us through to lunch. Just across the street from the beach, it was easy to get up in the morning and walk for miles either on the beach itself or on two paved walkways. Very close to many restaurants and cute shops.

This is an older- but well maintained, hotel located just across the street from the public beach. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The view of the ocean,from the second floor deck, was pretty.

We met here for a brief family reunion. It was as expected and clean and with nice common areas to visit. The staff, especially the breakfast helpers, were very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed walking to meals in the area. Breakfast was very basic- pre-made pastries, drip coffee, packaged yogurt (pancake machine not working). Only negative comments- chlorine level in hot tub was too high, and multiple mess ups with our bills.

This was my second stay at Best Western Plus Beach View in Carlsbad. I chose this location previously due to it's location. I was pleasantly surprised by the property itself. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Of course with hotels in a popular tourist area there are bound to be loud and obnoxious guests, but the staff is quick to address the problems once you inform them. The location could not be better. There are many restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance. The beds are extremely comfortable and the staff is very accommodating. I will be staying at the Beach View Lodge every time I am in the North County area.

Reasonable price with free parking, free wifi and free breakfast. Front desk staff was great. Not too busy so they let me check out late and use the lounge even after I checked out. Location is awesome. Beach is right across the street. There's an outdoor seating area where you can eat breakfast that looks out to the ocean. Only a few blocks to walk to the Carlsbad village area. My only complaint is the A/C didn't really keep the room cool enough especially the bathroom. But even with that, I'd definitely recommend this hotel and I'd stay here again!
