Lonely Planet review

Most of Carlsbad's top lodgings are inland, but this swanky new spot (opened 2012) is an easy walk to the ocean across Hwy 101. Pools, spa, business and fitness centers will keep you busy on land. Chandler's restaurant serves three squares, including creative dinners like falafel crabcakes and diver scallops with artichokes and smoked almonds. Parking costs $19.

It's about 4 miles south of Carlsbad Village and west of Legoland, separated from the ocean by the campground .

Our independent authors have visited Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort & Spa and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Carlsbad.
