Verified Reviews of Carlsbad by The Sea Resort

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Wonderful staff. Great locale. Excellent value."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We were extremely impressed with the property. The rooms were clean and very inviting. We ate breakfast on the balcony overlooking the grounds. The staff was helpful and accommodating. While we had stayed in several hotels in the Carlsbad area in the past, this was the best value.

"It was great for what I needed"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
It was a big bummer that the hot tub wasn't in working order. It was a cloudy day so I couldn't take advantage of the pool. Overall the room was clean but there was a glich in the shower and it needed a washer. It was room 121. It was also awesome that I was able to check in early being a huge help that it was before 10 in the morning.
