This hotel was worth what we paid for and then some. It was clean and comfortable plus an indoor pool. We had plans in Carlsbad but didn’t want to pay more than double for a hotel that wasn’t near as nice. We recommend staying here and driving into Carlsbad or surrounding areas if able. It will be ...
Stay here if you’re visiting Artesia! The staff is AMAZING! Everyone was pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was incredible, and had everything! They even gave us a snack bag, for our day trips! Fresh baked cookies met us every evening. The room was clean, and comfortable. The beds were dreamy. Seriously, ...
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 ...
My wife and I were driving in from Taos NM and wanted to get in early so that we could visit Carlsbad Caverns and watch the "Bat Flight". We got in around 2:30pm and check in was for 3:00pm. The receptionist was very friendly and even though the room that was listed was not ready, she found one that ...
A relaxing beach atmosphere in the town of Carlsbad makes for the perfect getaway from the bustling cities of nearby Los Angeles and San Diego. This community has all the qualities of an old beach town, reminding visitors of seaside life in the 1950s. Beyond the picturesque beaches, Carlsbad also contains has LEGOLAND California and Carlsbad Village.
Children, as well as those who are young-at-heart, will enjoy a trip to LEGOLAND California. It is home to several very accurately constructed miniature communities, all built with LEGO bricks, and guests can also cause a splash in the water park or seek a thrill on the trio of rollercoasters.
This is Carlsbad's downtown area, which is home to several of the area's restaurants, shops and nightlife spots brimming with quaintness and sense of community. Carlsbad Village is conveniently situated near the beach and the train station that shares its name.
Surfers, swimmers, scuba divers, campers, runners and walkers are amongst those who enjoy the 44-acre Carlsbad State Beach, located south of Carlsbad Village. The city is home to seven miles of beaches in total, while other popular natural attractions here include Agua Hedionda, Batiquitos and Buena Vista Lagoons.
Entertaining visitors of all ages, musical instruments that date back to the 1890s are on display here, along with a variety of hands-on instruments that enthrall their first-time players.
This art fair is held twice a year, in May and November. Nearly 1,000 vendors offer a variety of antiques, arts, crafts, clothes and food.
The Carlsbad 5000 attracts about 10,000 runners every April, including world-class athletes who often set world records on-site. The course provides runners with some spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.
The Carlsbad Marathon is another race that includes many seaside views. A half marathon that shares much of the marathon course and a one-mile kids run at LEGOLAND also take place on race weekend, taking place in January.
Carlsbad is relaxingly separated from large cities such as San Diego while still being very accessible, whether over land or by air.
Lindbergh Field (LUV) lies 35 miles to the south of Carlsbad. It welcomes people from as far away as London and Tokyo. Travelers can catch bus 992 from here to Santa Fe Depot in downtown San Diego, a 10-minute trip.
The Coaster provides convenient rail transport from Santa Fe Depot into Carlsbad, which is home to two stops on the route between San Diego and Oceanside to the north: Carlsbad Poinsettia and Carlsbad Village. This scenic trip takes about 30 minutes, with much of its route hugging the ocean.
Those traveling by rail from outside Southern California may need to take Amtrak to the Oceanside Transit Center, and then transfer to a Coaster train for a brief five-minute trip into Carlsbad. However, Amtrak does operate a few trains every day that stop at both Carlsbad's stations.
On this long stretch of road adjacent to the sea lies the Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort & Spa. With instant access to the beach, the hotel is also just minutes from McClellan-Palomar Airport (CRQ) and Carlsbad Business Park.
Perfect for those on business, Carlsbad by the Sea offers a complimentary shuttle bus to several local companies, and 5,000-square-feet of meeting space. When business is over, guests can take advantage of the soothing Jacuzzi.
High temperatures reach the mid-70s in the summer and the mid-60s in the winter. Carlsbad also enjoys about 265 sunny days a year. The June Gloom seasonal weather phenomenon creates a foggy and drizzly climate many mornings in and around June.
Travelers with some flexibility in their dates should consider visiting in the winter, as prices for Carlsbad hotels are generally cheaper during this time.
I enjoyed it with my family good experience the kids enjoyed the pool
This hotel was worth what we paid for and then some. It was clean and comfortable plus an indoor pool. We had plans in Carlsbad but didn’t want to pay more than double for a hotel that wasn’t near as nice. We recommend staying here and driving into Carlsbad or surrounding areas if able. It will be worth your while.
For the price, you get a good quality room. It was very clean and nothing was outdated.
This is the nicest Comfort Inn that I ever stayed at. Very convenient to everything and like new. The bed was super comfortable.too. Highly recommended!!
