Ocean Palms Beach Resort

2950 Ocean St., Carlsbad, California, 92008, USA

Fodor’s Expert Review

Just 40 steps from the sand, bring your kids (furry or not) to this delightful pet- and family-friendly hotel where the staff go out of their way to please guests. The property features 13 different room types–-multibedroom villas, suites, and studios–-that come equipped with full kitchens with stainless steel appliances, white wooden floors, distressed furniture, and hints of lime and turquoise. Families and friends of four should request No. 107, a precious two-bedroom unit with a wraparound porch, wainscoting ceiling, Dutch doors, and ocean views. Adirondack chairs frame a heated pool and Jacuzzi where you can listen to the crashing waves while you catch some rays. Guests have access to a fitness center, Weber grills, fire pits, a laundry room, surfboards, and putting green. The gazebo with misters cools off a hot summer day, and the simple breakfast and evening cookies make for happy bellies. Repeat guests receive 50% off for extended stays.
