Josh and Jose are awesome innkeepers. They call you prior to arriving to make sure you are safe and everything is ok. . The place is an hawaiian oasis with palms and beautiful flowers in Carlsbad. Steps from the ocean . They provide chairs, umbrellas, towels and a free breakfast daily. And a wonderful outdoor ambiance with fire pits, pool and hot tub .. Location cant be beat. Restaurant, bars and ice cream so close but far enough not to be disturbed. . A family run resort which is why they take pride in everything they do. Wonderful Time. See you next year
This is our second time staying at Ocean Palms and we will be back for many many more. There are so many great things about this place I don’t know where to start. Ok first off, when you book a stay here, they call you the moment your room is available in case you want to check in. This is the ONLY place I’ve ever stayed in my life that does this. The facilities aren’t brand new but boy are they clean! From dawn til dusk Ocean Palms staff works tirelessly to make sure everything is up to snuff for their guests. The location is perfect, a 30 second walk from your room puts you right on the pristine Pacific Ocean as well as miles of clean public beach. Included in your room rates are access to surfboards, boogie boards, chairs, umbrellas, and all the towels you’ll need. When you’re done playing in the waves, check out any one of a dozen amazing restaurants or local shops within two or three blocks of the resort. Or if you can’t find what you like (I doubt it), just drive out of your free resort parking down the Coastal Highway til you do. And now we get to the best part…the staff. It is a pleasure to interact with all the staff, but especially Beau and Jose. Stop in for a free cup of Starbucks coffee in the lobby and chat with them about anything the area has to offer. We even got a crash course in surfing and boogie boarding from Beau. When they’re not there, just talk to Samantha, Ruger, Ashley or Barry and they will take care of you too! So if you’re looking for the best relaxing SoCal vacation, take our word for it…this is the best bang for your buck. You can grill with the family, chill by the campfire, soak in the hot tub, and there’s no extra resort fees for anything! It’s no wonder half the guests that come here are repeat customers 10+ years in a row. There’s just no place like it. See you all next year!…
The Ocean Palms Beach Resort is a beautiful quaint hotel in Carlsbad CA. The hotel staff is super friendly and Jose was very welcoming and accommodating to my needs and requests. I highly recommend this hotel to any travelers looking for a perfect spot in Carlsbad and the beach is SO CLOSE!!
Beautiful resort. Well maintained. Flowers everywhere. Grounds spotless. Hawaiian tiki themed. Night time tiki torches and fire pots in common areas. Rooms updated and decorated in beach decor. Access to beach across street. Short walk to town for restaurants and shops.
Search along the entire Carlsbad/Oceanside/Tamarack Coast and you won’t find a better resort experience. The complimentary ‘beach basics’ make packing and traveling from home SO much easier. The rooms are spacious, clean and modern. Easy for big families. It’s incredibly clean and well kept. The entire staff is so kind, especially Jose and Maddy. They were super helpful and were really knowledgeable. BEST PART is the location. You’re across the street from the beach and neighbors to the best food in Carlsbad. You’re missing out if you don’t go here!!
