Whiskey before Breakfast room was delightful and the private entrance is around the left side of the house. It was a full suite with wonderful accents, great linen and a responsive caretaker when I didn't know how to lock the auto keypad (press the center button on exiting). Nothing could be improved on the room! The breakfast was off site and my husband wasn't keen on walking over there in the harsh weather. The voucher was not quite sufficient so we paid extra and the 2nd morning waffle was horrible (don't order one). At least during these Covid times there was some indoor seating. I would recommend this place to couples visiting anywhere in the area.

The property was very conveniently located. The room was very nice and comfortable. The check in process was effortless. The price was on par with other hotels in the area, but the inn was nicer than the comparable properties. Would definitely stay here again.

Super clean, nicely decorated craftsman’s style cottage. Easy check in and check out

Unique experience in century old home which was well appointed with period furniture, spacious and comfortable. Enjoyed outdoor hot tub on cool evenings during stay in early March. Also, unique experience with breakfast served at boutique restaurant located in residential neighborhood (only 100 yards away).

The staff at Fiddler's Inn provided lots of advance information. Since the inn is unattended after hours, they gave us the passcode to the door lock, told us what we needed to do, and provided discount meal coupons in the room. After a fine local dinner, I relaxed in the hot tub, a great relief after driving hundreds of miles. Breakfast was at a nearby cafe, which was excellent. I would recommend Fiddler's Inn to anyone traveling through Carlsbad.

I found this bed and breakfast while looking for hotels near the Carlsbad area. I wasn't a big fan of spending a lot of money, but sometimes you have to treat yo self. Julie and Tonk were so quick with a response once I booked the room. We got in a little late, but that didn't present any issues as Julie left the paperwork in the room. The Blue House Bakery & Café was delicious and open at 6 am. The bed was so big and comfortable. Even though it was cold out, the hot tub was a relaxing addition to a fun day at the caves. Unfortunately, I forgot my bathing suite after we checked out, but Julie assured me she would mail it out first thing Monday. I can't wait to come back. I'm glad we stayed at the Fiddler's Inn Bed and Breakfast. I was worth it!

Thank you for your feedback. We will let the owners of the café know about the waffles. We normally have them and they are delicious so I do apologize! I am glad you enjoyed everything about your stay with us!
