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.

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...

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!

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 staff is great, the hotel is great. If you are looking for a place to stay that feels like you are in a small beach town, don't look any further. In addition, the best breakfast around!!! Look no further then the BW Beach View Lodge!!!
