I arrived it was looking good but after I left for the day I returned to see my room wasn't clean I call but no one answered and I had to go all the way to front desk to tell them. In the morning at breakfast the waiter was bushing to eat and it wasn't even full. I really hope... More

It is on the beach, though you must cross a six-lane dual carriageway (divided highway for US readers) to get to it. Fortunately there are traffic lights... We had a quiet, comfortable night. The room was well equipped and nicely decorated. The bar and restaurant are perfectly adequate. Only the fact that the door keys stopped working before breakfast (perhaps... More

Literally like 5 minutes away from Legoland. Wish the beach access was more convenient though but a little walking is always a bonus when you are on vacation. If I go back to Legoland I will be staying there again!

Nice hotel that is separated from the pacific beach through a highway with heavy traffic. The rooms are a little aged but in a good shape. The personel is very friendly - overnight parking is charged with 12$ per night.

Worst Hilton experience since I used my points to send family to see a dying family member. As an Honora member I feel we should have been treated better. And to enter an already occupied room was embarrassing.

Very quiet room and place, no street noise, nor night traffic. Bed was very comfortable. Near by there was a train track, Amtrak, Coasters, and I did not hear them go by. The coffee they supplied in the room was not enough, and not many choices to pick from, and only two creamers. I would stay there in the future,... More

I expected more from a Hilton, especially this location in Carlsbad. The rooms were clean but ocean view rooms not worth the upgrade. There are no balconies to enjoy the view and if you open the slider, all you get is traffic noise.

I have attended MANY conferences during my professional career and I have never been to ANY conference where the hotel did not provide a coffee/tea break. When we asked for coffee we were treated rudely. We purchased meals for around 100 people and one would think that for the price my company paid for the rooms, conference room rental, and... More

Nice pool. Fun movie night outside on the grass. Nice cook to order kitchen. It was hard to find a place open late to have ice cream so we ordered cheesecake and ice cream and relaxed with a movie in our room instead. Friendly staff. Would stay here again.

This hotel was excellent. It isn't a brand new hotel, but it is extremely clean and well kept. The linens were always fresh and crisp. The hotel is quiet and you can't beat the location. It was really easy to get on and off the interstate from the hotel or just cruise up and down the beach. It is probably... More
