Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Loved the shared balcony, continental breakfast and location.

This was one of the best locations for a hotel. An amazing view of the beach and to be able to check out beach chairs and booth boards for free was a great bonus.

motel was central locate so was able to find a lot of places to eat and sight see.

We have stayed at this hotel once before. It has an excellent location across from the beach. The rooms are sizeable and were remodeled within recent years. Love the electric fireplace. I also love that breakfast is served on a second floor room that overlooks the ocean - panoramic view. We would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed visiting family nearby. It is only about an hour to the San Diego airport,and 101 is right in front.

Very clean and well maintained hotel, breakfast is provided and was good, for people with families it is well recommended!

Nice beds. Manager said they were new. Fireplace was a nice amenity and we used it evening and morning.

Great location & terrific staff. Excellent breakfast

Had a good stay. Hotel was convenient to beach and dining/drinking options.

Not the 1st trip here. Great Location to everything. Walking distance to fun everyday. And the View...wow

Great Location, very clean room, friendly staff, couldnt ask for more. Great place to come and go from but not much to keep you at the property but thats the point when the beach is across the street

ONE OF THE BETTER BEACH LOCATIONS IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY. GOOD PROXIMITY TO LEGOLAND.

We enjoyed our overnight stay before heading to the local amusement park which was 8 minutes away. The hotel has a cool, simple vibe with comfortable amenities. You are right across from the beach, but only one room faces the ocean which is mostly obscured by a large tree. The fireplace in the room came in handy when the town experienced a light rain all day in the middle of Summer. However that didn't stop us from visiting the beach, a short walk to the small town, and swimming in the pool. I felt very safe in the town. The local convenience store had all you needed for anything you may have forgotten at home. The continental breakfast was sufficient with a fair amount of choices from oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, muffins, cereal, bread, bagels, hot chocolate, coffee. There is also a vending machine and soda machine on the property. We enjoyed our stay in this quaint, little town!

This hotel is a really good value stay....it is walking distance to the village and across the street from the beach. There is a large patio for ocean viewing that is shared by the guests...never too crowded. We normally stay beachfront [$200+ more per night] for a week, but this year decided to save $ and spend on a trip [prior] to Disneyland. This hotel is a great place to stay and check-out the Carlsbad beach scene. Park your car and walk to everything...and if you drive somewhere in the village, the parking is free...unlike the rest of the coast cities.

We actually enjoyed our stay and will probably stay again if the price is right. ALL hotels are overpriced for what they pay there staff. There were a lot of children staying up late at the pool and were a little loud, but if you know how children can understandably get especially on there vacation, then you should be ok. I'm not saying that it's ok, and the staff should try to tone it down a bit, but we are ALL on vacation here, even the kids. The room was clean and we had a partial view of the ocean which was only a couple minutes walk. The staff was nice and like most hotels, they probably don't get paid enough for the price being paid for the rooms. I mean, these corporations need to take care of there people that usually get the blame for these reviews...

If you want to be in the middle of it all then BW+ is the place. Friendly and caring staff from the front desk staff ( A,,,+ J...)The maintenance tech was great and housekeeping was kind and friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. Walking distance to V.C. fish market and other great restaurants from Mexican Food up the street to Italain. Beach is across the street . Hotel has an out dook deck to sun, watch and just get away. The guest viewing/breakfast room is indoors so it gives you a break from the sun and heat and very comfortable. Breakfast is ample and gets you going for the day. There are some hot breakfast sandwiches and typical cold fare yet a broad selection. The only thing I would do different is to contact front desk about the family above our first floor room. It was like living under a bowling alley with thumping and jumping overhead to late into the night. Hey, I didnt call thinking it would go away. It didnt and second night was the same. So that was is no me. However next time I will get a third floor room so no on is living over me doing all star wrestling and body slamming on the floor. I will be back. Great place!

We had a good time for an overnight stay. Close to restaurants and right across from the beach.

The hotel was fabulous...very close to the beach. We walked everywhere and didn't have to worry about parking! We will definitely return here. The high price was the only downfall...but I guess you get what you pay for....we loved it!

It was clean, people are helpful, location is excellent. I booked thru a third party and was to of had a king with fireplace. King but no fireplace! So I would book straight the next time.

Excellent location! Just a short walk to the beach! Great view!
