The unit we were in was clean. Parking is on a first come first served basis but it wasn't hard to find parking behind the building. The proximity to the beach was the best part of our stay. We open the windows at nigh just to hear the waves. It was so relaxing. The front desk people were very nice and helpful. We also enjoyed the patio area with the fire pits that were lit every night. We will definitely be back.

I enjoyed my stay at Ocean Palms, the room was very clean and offered alot. The beach is right across the street and everything is within walking distance. During my stay the smoke detector battery went out and the office repaired it within 5 minutes of me calling. I will definitely stay here again.

I was extremely happy I was able to do a early check in and loved how friendly the staff was. The room was beautiful.

Location, Across from Beach Access. Perfect size with full kitchen. Quiet.

Spilled coffee on bedding. Notified housekeeping immediately. They stated they would not change the bed and instead gave us sheets to do it ourselves. I offered to rinse it in the room. We were instructed to leave the soiled sheets; however, two days later after we were home we were telephoned and advised we would be charged for bedding. When I attempted to discuss it, resort staff hung up on me. The pool and hot tub have droppings from the trees in them. Our room was never cleaned and we had to collect towels and exchange with housekeeping daily. Normally I’d let these things go but after the treatment we received at the end others should be warned.

I liked the areas available to sit outside. The grounds are beautifully maintained.

This is a great location, and a lot of fun to stay at. had a great time,

The property RETALIATED against their guest after completing the checkin survey from the 3rd party hotel billing company. The hotel must have gotten a copy of the review and called me stating, “you need to check out by 11pm or security will take ur stuff out of the room and you’ll have to pick it up at the office. I was literally kicked out of the hotel after completing the survey. So sad they felt the need to be bullies and kick me out at 9:50pm to find another hotel. This hotel should be removed from Orbitz platform.

Popular hotel with families. It was very close to accesses to the beach and in the heart of Carlsbad Village. Since just off the main drag, the rooms were quiet in the evenings and throughout the night. Hotel lobby offers refreshments throughout the day.

Very customer friendly staff with beach towels and chairs to offer. Rooms were excellent!

Great spot within walking distance of the beach, Pizza Port and the coaster. Rooms were affordable and had accommodations including a full kitchen. We will stay here again for sure.

Had a couple of problems in the beginning but Todd the night clerk took excellent care of us and fixed everything perfectly.

The staff was super friendly and kind. We got a free upgrade to a king suite to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. We loved the room and the grounds (so much attention to detail!). We asked to see a couple of the villas and other rooms available for the possibility of hosting events later and they were all different and amazing. We loved the location - right across the beach and walking distance from downtown Carlsbad. We will definitely be back and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

The setting was very pretty. There is a choice of pools. The restaraunt on site was good, loved the ambiance.

Hotel location was key....just steps from the beach. Staff was great and the room was clean. Planning on taking a return trip and staying at this hotel again in the coming eeks.

Right next to the beach and super nice!!! We will most certainly be back.

Overall, we were satisfied with our stay. We stayed in the Maui Suite. The hotel grounds were beautiful - a tropical oasis. Our suite was one of the more updated suites but a few things seemed to need attention. The furniture in the master bedroom was kinda beat up. It seemed relatively clean but some items (front of stove and fridge) seemed to need a good wipe down. Our kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The pool (30 people max) and hot tub (6 people) are kinda small but worked for us as not a lot if people were using it when we visited in March. Fire pits (3 of them) were lit every night. - a nice place to gather at the end of the day for a cocktail and conversation and also you can hear the ocean waves crashing on shore. They were working on updating a few of the older rooms - a good thing as I know a few reviewers complained about some rooms needing an update. Might want either a top unit or one without a second floor as we noticed the noise from walking and chairs being moved above us got a little loud a few days into our stay. Hotel is within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. Ocean access is across small road and down some stairs - very close! We would stay again!
