You can go for a morning swim at the outdoor pool and visit the fitness center for a workout. A spa tub and a snack bar/deli are offered, and in-room conveniences include refrigerators and microwaves.
Pros: Excellent service--definitely well attended and pampered. Beds are comfortable and maid service spot on.
The location of the hotel makes it peaceful, good views, and quiet. But it requires driving around to the beach, any activities, and food is extremely limited in options/budget choices for miles.
Cons: There are two parts of the resort, a distance apart on a hill. While they are great about providing shuttles, it does really make a difference.
The Summit: where the kids club room is located, so it was important for us to be here. But the pool is smaller, and the spa/restaurant are a distance away.
The Meadows: feels a bit swankier, the main lobby of the hotel where to get beach equipment and movies. So staying here might be more central/convenient. NIcer pool and longer food service for pool.

Pros: Brand new rooms and facilities. Great breakfast.
Cons: Thin walls. I could hear casual conversation from other rooms. The service was poor. The front desk was often left unattended, and the maid service was minimal - I stayed for several days and they never vacuumed. This is the first Marriott property that didn't provide complimentary lotion.

Pros: The view was picturesque . Shannon the at the front desk carries this place, she should go into hotel management.
Cons: Seriously outdated rooms, tripped several times on the uneven flooring in room 26. The carpet felt like it had been laid over another carpet that had been folded over in different areas.
Bedding was not what I expected for the money that they charged for an exclusive room. Maid service needs basic bed making 101, how to tuck in the bottom sheet so patrons feet are not touching the mattress pad. Pool was cloudy, ran out of towels. All round we were not impressed with anything the Beach Terrace Inn had to offer.
Pros: I liked:
Friendly, helpful staff
Location on the beach
Large attractive room with king bed
Pool & beach facing room view
Large fancy bathroom
Wine glasses and corkscrew provided
Very close parking
Continental breakfast buffet and ample seating
Beach equipment loan
Cons: I didn't like:
Steep, narrow stairways
High price (well, it was right on the beach!)
Pros: Loved being right on the icean and watching sunsets and hearing surf right out of our room. Appreciated continental breakfast. Lovely accomodations. Might be a little difficult for handicapped person to get around, however.
Cons: The Internet service kept booting me off. My husband could not talk on his iphone (sprint) unless he went out in front of the hotel. I guess Carlsbad limits cell towers.
Pros: I have stayed at the Beach Terrace Inn several times and have always been happy with the staff and service. The rooms are large and well appointed. The location is great as it is on the beach with most rooms having full, unobstructed views of the beach and Pacific Ocean. It is also only a block away from very nice restaurants and shops. No street noise, just the sound of the surf.
With a stay at Beach Terrace Inn, you'll be centrally located in Carlsbad, convenient to Carlsbad State Beach and Carlsbad Premium Outlets. This beach hotel is within close proximity of Oceanside Pier and California Surf Museum.

Featured amenities include a 24-hour business center, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services. Planning an event in Carlsbad? This hotel has facilities measuring 1120 square feet (104 square meters), including a meeting room. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: Everything - it was very unassuming and we were more than surprised.
Cons: Wasn't anything we didn't like
Pros: The s'more kit upon check in, super friendly and helpful staff. Very nice room, comfortable and well maintained.
Cons: We were in town for a soccer tournament and the weather was in 60s so we would have liked to enjoy the pool and lake activities.
Pros: We loved the room, bed was really comfortable. Had a great nights sleep. The pool area is great. Cabanas, two pools, two jacuzzis, and two firepitts. Plenty of space.
Cons: Staff was nice but not very knowledgeable. No one ever went out of their way to help if there was a problem.
Pros: We LOVED our one-night stay at the Lakehouse! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left - everything was perfect. We booked it last minute as a fun little getaway during the holidays. We got a pretty good deal since we stayed the night before New Year's Eve (12/30). The hotel texted us to let us know our room was ready and we were able to check in around 1 PM.
We had a ground floor pool view room. Every room has a balcony with bright yellow adirondack chairs and it was really nice sitting outside our room, with a cup of coffee and my book. They had quiet reggae music playing at the pool and I really enjoyed it!
The room was IMMACULATE. Everything felt new and crisp and clean. I loved the color scheme and layout too. The room was really spacious and just overall lovely. It was just 2 of us for one night but I did notice that there were a TON of outlets throughout the room. Nice touch in this day and age when we all have so many electronics to charge :)
The pools were both heated and almost warm enough for me to swim in (On December 30, mind you). We loved the jacuzzis though! I wish we'd been there on a Friday when they serve Sangria at the pool! (oh well, we'll just have to go back).
In the evening they have fire pits around the pools that they light and it was really pretty and romantic.
The grounds were really peaceful and tranquil. And even though the hotel was probably at low to moderate capacity - it feels like the type of place that even when it's full, it doesn't feel crowded. I noticed that another couple was checked into the room next to us, and there were people above them, but I never heard anyone at all when we were in our room.
They serve free coffee in the morning at their little cafe and it was better than that your standard free hotel coffee.
We walked by the lake, but didn't participate in any of the many lake activities. I also went for a run in the neighborhood in the morning and it's a really cute little community.
We had a great time at the Lakehouse and kept saying we really wanted to bring friends back!
Pros: great value for the price. We had a great time !
Cons: Tons of bugs. Couldn't use the beautiful balcony.
Pros: I loved the room and the fact that it was right by the lake. It had a great view.
Cons: The only thing I didn't like was that hardly and water came out from the shower or the sink but besides that everything else was great!
Pros: The Lakehouse has a lot of potential and gets a lot of things right, but it lets the little details get in the way of really hitting the mark.
- Comfortable beds
- Full showers
- Beautiful pools
- Friendly staff
- Free Wi-Fi
- Free parking
- Mini fridge
- Activities for kids
- Outside light
- No safe in room
- No plugs at computer desk
- Wi-Fi drops and is unreliable
Most rooms are motel-style and open directly to the outside, which can be noisy and makes it much easier for bugs to end up in the room (especially with the rooms being so close to the lake). We had mosquitos and silverfish in our room two or three days in a row.
Pros: Loved the atmosphere. Calm by the lake. Family oriented! Felt like vacation! Music, bar, and s'mores by the pool! The lake and the boat rental our favorite part!
Cons: Drinks at the pool bar a little pricey.
Pros: Super helpful and friendly staff, nice facilities, pools were awesome for relaxing during the day.
Cons: The check-in time of four and check-out time of eleven is a little tight, but we requested a later check out (noon) and that made it closer to what we are used to at other hotels.They offered to let us use the pool after checking out so that was really nice of them.
Pros: Great staff,truly care about you...my husband was having surgery and they wanted to make sure he had everything he needed to be comtorable and have a room on the first floor and they also upgraded us to a room that was right on the lake free of charge:) amazing beds,showers,true spa like feel
Cons: The only thing that bothers me is that you can't check in until 4 and you have to check out by 11
Cons: The room was smaller than I expected. The layout of the room was also weird

Pros: The people were wonderful. Really not worth the money - I've stayed at much nicer hotels for less.
Cons: Just not my cup of tea. I was there for a conference and the conference was held at the hotel - so it was convenient - I will probably stay offsite next year for less money.
Cons: The bathroom was too small for the room
Pros: Loved the setting and the grounds. The room size was huge with a separate bath tub from the shower stall which was really nice. Love the out door patio and the staff was very friendly.
Cons: The room smelled very musty and was freezing, probably to hide the smell. I never could get the room warm enough for my wife and I but fortunately, it was a VERY WARM weekend and we left the french doors open the whole time to get that desired warmth into the room. We were an older room of theirs so I'm not sure if this is the reason for the musty smell but it was pretty strong for our stay there. Had I been there more than one night, I definitely would have requested another room.
Cons: They didn't have my reservation and asked me to send an email to confirm that I had a reservation
Pros: I liked that the resort has a welcoming feel and that most all of the rooms (besides the villas) were surrounded by the amenities.
Cons: 1. The prices in the Marketplace. $16 for a water noodle, when they sell them for $7 right down the street! That would be hard especially for people who are having to buy for more than one kid.
2. Our bed. It was not very comfortable
Cons: We were looking for a quiet getaway; this was not it. There were families with kids above and next to our room and we got pretty bad sleep. Slamming doors, loud TV's, running and on and on - quite late and then early in the morning. I asked for a quiet room and got nothing but noise.
Pros: Love this place... Property grounds are impeccable! Rooms are clean and updated. Always a great time!
Pros: The room and pool area was nice. Blue fire grill was fabulous!
Cons: Front desk staff was unhelpful on multiple occasions. The day spa is mediocre at best and is long overdue for renovations! Indoor facility grout is disgusting and the indoor hot tubs are falling apart!
Cons: The pool was way too overcrowded. I think they sell membership to to the pool to the community making it unusable to the hotel guests. There were so many people you could hardly move in it and the water was so cloudy I couldnt even see my feet. Will never go back to this hotel.
Pros: Everything. Love love love. Looking right now to go back. :)
Cons: More food options. That's all

Pros: My sister recommended this hotel and we were pleased. Room was great; the bathroom is probably one of the bigger one I've seen (you can get out from the shower without almost touching the toilet). Having a functional kitchen is a plus. Continental breakfast is offered which is nice, so I don't have to make an extra stop to feed the kids in the morning. Staff we dealt with are nice and courteous. Our destination is LEGOLAND which is very close by. It is also close by stores like Costco and Target.
Cons: Breakfast hour is from 7 - 9, which works for business travel but for family vacation, the hours are too early and I feel rushed to get out of bed and downstairs to grab a bite. This may just be me, but there is no dimmer light in the bedroom side - there are only two very bright one on the nightstand, and you cannot turn on the bathroom light (where the counter is) without the light shining to the beds and disturb whoever is sleeping there. Walls are definitely thin, the room above us was probably doing DDR the whole time we were there and the room next to our bedroom was listening to music all night long. =\
Cons: Families with screaming kids at breakfast. Did not matter if it was 6am or 8am. Should have adult only seating area at breakfast.
Pros: Location, value, friendly staff
Cons: Automatic lights that can't be turned off. Woke me and my kids up repeatedly. Called down to the front desk and they said they could send an engineer up, but my kids were already asleep in the living room. Other than this, great hotel.

Pros: The location across the street from the beach, near Carlsbad Village, and Legoland was great. Nice size rooms. The Rec room, in-room DVD players, and DVD library are great for families. Free parking, wifi, and breakfast.
Cons: Tub and shower tile a little dated. The beds and bedding were not as comfortable as other hotels.
Cons: The property overall is quite noisy from the inside guest traffic not outside street traffic. Whenever closeby guests move around, take showers or walk outside the rooms, we heard pretty much everything. It seems the property us quite old and does not have guest noise cancellation of any form.
Pros: Location. Large rooms. Nice amenities.
Cons: Cockroaches in bathrooms by pool area. Should provide easier access to beach towels.

Pros: Was down here for a visit to Legoland and booked the hotel for the lower cost and 3.5 star rating. To our surprise, the hotel was very new construction and a nice modern look to it and the rooms had great features. Will come back for the next trip to Legoland.
Pros: close to legoland. close to trader joes. early checkin and friendly staff. easy parking. nice clean pool. clean rooms. walls thin? somewhat but whatever it's a hotel and we weren't bothered at all.
Cons: rooms were a bit stuffy. mickey mouse hours for food/bar on weekends. i guess holiday express means catered for business travelers weekdays? no room service. all this was minor for a good overall hotel.
oh and one major con but not a dealbreaker. no ice machine on the first floor!

Pros: Clean room, we'll lit, quite location. The housekeepers/laundry staff were working hard, definitely making the place clean.
Cons: Parking is horrible for anything larger than a compact car. Not the easiest place to park a full size chevy suv.
The beds....well at least they were clean. Comfort was non existing. I've had better sleep after a pot of coffee, but what was even worse than the bed was the response I received from the staff at the front desk when I brought it up. It was almost as if a requirement to work the front desk was to have a "I'm better than you" attitude. Very dry and callous demeanor.
Pros: Great customer service from beginning to end. We booked several rooms along with a conference room and the staff were all helpful to us. Complimentary breakfast was good and had variety. Bed was comfortable and amenities were plenty. Several fast food places right next door. Would definitely stay again.
Cons: Jacuzzi was cloudy with a beautiful green fungus color.
Pros: Staff that checks us in and out were just dolls. Really sweet. Very receptive to my children. Rooms were extremely clean. Breakfast was great. Always replenished. Omelets cereal waffles fresh fruit potatoes toast muffins not from the supermarket. Cookies juices milk coffee hot chocolate chicjen sausage bagels lots of different spreads for the breads and waffles. Oatmeal cottage cheese. And it was a Monday! Weekdays at most hotels serve basic pastry utems cereal and toast. They save the restaurant style for weekends only. It was quiet on my 2nd floor. The small room they have filled with grocery items was convenient. They offer free newspapers a treasure box for kids to Rumsfeld through. A treat for the children. The eating area is very nice. Not a bunch of wooden tables. Nice cushioned seats. Exercise room was clean and well lit. Parking was easy to access.
Cons: Pool seems small pool area as well. 4pm check in. I usually go to hotels that are 1-3pm check in. Check out is noon. So, that's not giving me s full 24hr stay. A 20hr stay.

Pros: Lots of things to do, quiet, great overall value.
Cons: Some maintenance upkeep items could have been beyter.
Pros: This is a BEAUTIFUL RESORT, the location is EXCELLENT and the view is AMAZING but...
Cons: We were walking around in the room barefoot and after 15 min we noticed the bottom of our feet were BLACK. The carpet in our room was disgustingly dirty!!! Then there was not hot water for our entire stay. I understand hot water was a mechanical issue but dirty carpet in the rooms in a lack of cleanliness.
Pros: Proximity to Legoland. Child friendly atmosphere. Pool was great for kids.
Cons: Housekeeping arriving after 5 pm.
Pros: very nice pool with kids pool. nice amenities. great location.
Cons: hotel needs updating. very squeaky floors with old carpet.
Pros: Location to Legoland
Cons: The room wasn't cleaned until the last day of our stay. There was construction going on. And, our room was dirty from the previous tenants. Not sure if the lack of attention was because we used Kayak, or if the Hotel is just that bad. I was surprised.
Pros: I loved the location. Walking distance from legoland, short drive to a variety of restaurants, and the Carlsbad outlet mall. Great family pool with splash pad and a onsite park. Rooms had a microwave and mini-fridge.
Cons: It was kind of pricey.
Pros: Close to Legoland. Karl Strauss on site. Pool options. Friendly staff.
Cons: Still under construction in the "hotel" area. Lots of areas closed off with yellow tape, plastic covering on floors, one kids water park fountain toy was out of service.

Cons: Food was awful, I would have expected better especially considering the simplicity of my order and the cost. I ordered a cheeseburger which was burned and the worst quality. The pizza I ordered tasted like cardboard.
When I was checking out I waited about 5 minutes for the front desk agent to come back, she came up from the hallway with a cup of coffee in hand and didn't even apologize for the wait.
Pros: Cape Rey was a lovely place to stay and I wouldn't mind coming back for a longer stay. Only had the chance to spend a beautiful weekend there, can't imagine how amazing it'd be in the summer. Staff was very helpful, approachable and kind.
Pros: I like the location
Cons: I was promised a ocean view I got a parking l

Pros: Room was spacious and clean, shower was great, location was great.
Cons: I was woken up by housekeeping in the morning on the day I checked out- I would have liked to sleep in! And I don't like the hidden "resort fee".
Pros: Very kid-friendly and the proximity to Legoland was nice. The staff were generally pretty helpful. The gym had a good selection of equipment.
Cons: For the price, the room that we had was sub-par. The wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling and the shower was pretty run-down. Although some of the gym equipment had televisions built in, there was limited volume despite the supplying of headphones. Couldn't really hear anything while running on the treadmill.

Pros: Excellent staff, loved the bistro, beautiful room
Pros: Manager seemed friendly. Cleanliness was okay.
Cons: Rooms small, modestly furnished. Despite the balconies shown in pictures of this hotel, I was not able to get a balcony room.
Fitness center is modest, only one weight bench. TV in fitness center was broken.
No continental breakfast included! Instead you must buy breakfast at the hotel's very lousy restaurant. It took almost 30 minutes for the cook to prepare my simple eggs, the price was way too high for the area, and the food quality was low. Verdict: expensive AND shitty.
Cons: I prepaid online, then saw an additional $4.95 charge to my credit card directly from the hotel. I still don't know what that was for
Pros: Quiet, clean and comfortable. The highway is far enough to avoid traffic noise. Nice decor everywhere. Definitely a good business trip hotel.
Cons: After exiting the 5 fwy, my gps took me east several miles. I was somewhat surprised and disappointed with how far the hotel was from all beaches. Breakfast was 'meh'.
Pros: The rooms were large and very well kept, more than enough space for a family of 4. Ample parking and amenities like the free wifi, pool, jacuzzi and fitness center were nice to have. The staff were extremely friendly and courteous, and they were very helpful even in the face of my one negative experience with the property.
Cons: The one huge flaw was "The Bistro" restaurant breakfast service in the lobby. Our package included breakfast at a very reasonable price, but apparently most of the people in the hotel concurred, because when I went down for breakfast, there was a line of 20+ people waiting to order, and many many more waiting for their orders. All told, there were probably over 100 people either eating, waiting to eat or waiting to order. Apparently they were short staffed because of a couple people called in sick, and according to the staffer I talked to, the kitchen isn't equipped to handle so many orders. It took almost half an hour just to place my order for my family's breakfast. The staffers there were hustling about, very apologetic about the huge delays, but many people were extremely frustrated. It took over 1.5 hours to get our order, *not* including the .5 hour ordering. This is a huge failing of either the training or infrastructure. If the staff either can't handle the order, or aren't trained to handle it, Marriott needs to improve the infrastructure, improve their training, better staff the restaurant or change the menu so that the staff can manage what is being offered.
Pros: Location, lobby
Cons: Heating and A/C in room units cycled on and off louder than a locomotive.

Pros: I liked the staff, really friendly and I loved that one employee went out of her way to let us get pancakes after the 930 my child accidentally dropped her pancakes and the staff let us get more. I really appreciate that
Cons: I didnt like the bed or pillows it was too stif I didn't sleep comfortably.
Pros: Soft and Hard Pillows, Fridge, Microwave, Kuerig Coffee Maker, Swipeless Door Access Cards
Cons: Sink drained very slowly.
Pros: The breakfasts were good. My family and I enjoyed the pancakes, cinnamon rolls and omelets. Front counter staff were friendly and efficient. They made us feel welcome. The amenities available were up to par.
Cons: I normally like our stays at Holiday Inn Express Hotels, however the rooms at this location were dirty. The carpet in our room was not vacuumed and the linen appeared unkept. There was trash under the kitchenette sink and in the bathroom when we first checked in.
Pros: Continental breakfast was good.
Cons: A rollaway bed will coast you extra.
Pros: Location, breakfast, pool were all things I was looking forward to and happy with once we arrived.
Cons: The staff is friendly and helpful, but I think they're sometimes overwhelmed with the crowds. It's not their fault, they do a great job, but when there are 30-40 people waiting in line at breakfast, I imagine it can be a lot. The front desk folks seemed a little less friendly than I'm used to, but again, maybe it's just the crowds for Legoland that burns them out. It's a lot of people with kids.
Pros: Loved everything about the hotel in regards to comfort, friendly staff, location, amenities, breakfast.
Cons: All of the guest room doors SLAMMED. HARD. And since no one in this day and age cares about respecting other peoples' sleeping schedules, it was very loud all night. My 4 year old and I had a very hard time sleeping with all the slamming doors. Did I mention that the doors were slamming ALL NIGHT?!?!!

Cons: Dirty hallways, staff at desk complaining that they were short of help. Was promised a room by my daughter, but did no happen.
Pros: The staff was super friendly and kind.
Cons: It smells in the hallways like old dogs. The wifi doesn't work. The pool is cold. The gym equipment is all broken except one of the treadmills.
Pros: ~ good breakfast
~ Shuttle to Legoland

Pros: Really good complimentary breakfast - including made-to-order omelettes. Staff was all very friendly and helpful.
