10.0 Excellent
Pros: I really enjoyed my stay with my wife at Park Hyatt Aviara. Jenny Jang is at the reception was kind and very friendly, she was very accommodating and caring to our concerns. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Carlsbad, CA. I had a wonderful experience staying for one night at this hotel. Again, I really appreciate it!

10.0 Excellent
Cons: Cost of Golf for guests is too high.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The grounds of this Hyatt are absolutely beautiful and so are the rooms.
Cons: I thought $40 for valet parking was a bit steep but I didn't choose this hotel because I thought it was looking for bargain basement prices.
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved hanging out by the pool with my son, dining at the lobby lounge was easy, tasty and still very charming. Room was great , comfy bed!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was arguably one of the very best hotel experiences ever - after years of global travel on business and for leisure. The property is beautiful. Our suite was beautiful. Every member of staff was courteous, genuinely warm in their engagement with us and obviously well-trained. Service at every level was superb. It was expensive but worth it and it made our 13 nights memorable in a good way, standing out as the best of all hotels in our 5 week trip to California.
Cons: There was nothing to not like other than some of the expense for golf but then again it does not disguise its top of the market positioning
6.7 Good
Pros: If you value customer service- Staff will treat you like a king/queen. Three people to open the doors. Useless in my opinion. Beverage (water/coffee) offered anytime. They had live music some nights. Pianist and a guitar singer. Great fitness center and it’s open 24hours. Wish the swimming pool were open later/earlier. Wasn’t able to enjoy it. Fluffly blankets and great mattress. Pillows could be better.
Cons: I had requested a fridge be placed in our room a couple weeks before our weekend. The fridge wasn’t there when we checked in. However, they did put one in later that day when i mentioned it. Also, they mentioned they do a little extra for birthday celebrations. But didn’t see anything in the room. I didn’t bother ask. I was just annoyed at this point. I didn’t like their mandatory valet parking system. The wait would be unecessarily longer than it should be. And they favor the luxury cars first. A mandatory fee was added per night. For the price, i would expect free parking or self parking available at least. And shuttle service should be expanded to the beach at least, not just the outlet.

7.9 Good
Pros: Excellent location in Carlsbad...walk to the beach, shops, restaurants, etc. We stayed in the Deluxe Room, with a view of the small parking lot. It wasn't as nice as I had hoped based on pictures and reviews. In walking around the property, it seemed like the larger rooms/suites had all been updated and were positioned on better parts of the property. I'd come again, but stay in one of those. There are only a handful of parking spots dedicated to the hotel, but we were able to find one on the street fairly easily. The pool is small but nice. The fire pits are a nice touch. I'd stay again, but not for the price I paid, and not in a standard room.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great service by the staff. We had a small child above us that was training for a marathon. We spoke to the manager twice at the front office who told us they would call the party above us and handle this. After the second time of talking to the manager they actually called us (we were out for breakfast) and said that another 2 bedroom room had become available. I had to pay additional money to upgrade, but the kids loved it. Bigger bathroom, living room and kitchen. The highlight was the hot tub on the porch. Stayed 6 nights and the last 3 were the best!
Cons: The noise above if you are on the first floor. We understand families are vacationing and have small kids. However, I was strict with my girls and made sure they were never running or jumping if someone was below us. Now they understand why!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The front desk personnel was exceptional in being helpful about the resort! She was willing to make sure our "stay" at Ocean Palms Resort was really nice. The rooms are bright and cheery and very clean! The grounds are beautiful! We will return!

8.5 Excellent
Pros: Good location, the staff is friendly, and the rooms are spacious and clean. The free breakfast was very good.
Cons: Since there isn’t a full service restaurant, there aren’t any restaurants close by (if you are new to the area). It’s really just located around other hotels. There are no facilities for charging an electric vehicle. There is an outdoor outlet, but it’s located right next to a handicapped parking space. That’s a deal-breaker for us, so we won’t stay there again. There are hotels nearby that do have those stations so they really need to upgrade.

Cons: The room we reserved wasn't ready at 4pm when we arrived, but not until well after 5:30pm and then shortly before 7pm the power went out for 5 1/2 hours! The front half of the parking lot was blocked off for repair. Parking was limited in the back and we had to walk far to get to our room. Dinner is only provided Monday to Thursday, so if you stay over a weekend there's no food in evenings.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Location was amazing. Loved they provided beach towels and had lot of events. Great for kids.
Cons: We had a door which connected to another room and the sound really traveled to our room.
7.5 Good
Pros: Property
10.0 Excellent
Pros: OKAY
Cons: Fruit was excellent - pastries were tough not flakey - you need to serve breakfast daily with a larger selection for those who are hotel guests.
7.9 Good
Pros: Excellent location across the street from the beach and walking distance to many shops and restaurants. No smoking anywhere inside or outside. They provided beach towels and had a small fridge in the room. The body and hair products weren't overly smelly, which was awesome. The bed was comfortable. The grounds were nice with lots of attractive shrubs and flowers.
Cons: Pretty noisy. Our room faced the street which was noisy, but even when we sat outside in the back, people were quite noisy. The hall noise was loud also, as there was a gap under the door, and we could hear everything going on in the hall - full-blown conversations. It was kind of uncomfortable. We always travel with earplugs for sleeping and definitely needed them!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Close to the beach restaurants and shipping.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: room accommodations, suite offers space and in room cooking
Cons: nearby construction did not allow us to have patio door open while in unit, very noisey and disappointing! on going property construction into 2021, limits our next thoughts of another stay "no pool and not to mention construction noise".
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Cleanliness, quiet rooms, location and the housekeeping staff.
Cons: I understand that front desk employee's should be professional but friendly and kind smiles would help.

Cons: Tiny pool
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing location
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Location, (walk to everything) walk to beach, clean. Staff is wonderful. Daily activities (bingo, massage, ceramics, yoga, etc.)
Cons: The only thing is the construction. Jackhammers at 9am! We were warned; I just thought my family would be up by then, and they weren't. But it is necessary, and is being done well; this is a timeshare condo resort (mostly, except for the "hotel" rooms) and the construction is repair/upgrading the resort.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Proximity to the beach (a short walk past the timeshare apartments.
Cons: The name is very misleading for hotel guests maybe the right name for timeshare people. Paid top dollar for a room inches from the pavement (sidewalk) & a few feet from a main road. I've stayed in Carlsbad 3 times now at 3 different hotels & this one I can't recommend.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Location
Cons: Price too much. No microwave no continental breakfast, not real clean, front desk iffy, sliding door lock was some funky added on lock because the door lock was broken

8.0 Excellent
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.
7.5 Good
Pros: The breakfast was very average and in a strange room off the pool. There was an attendant who asked us every morning for our room number. The attendant also was in charge of making waffles. Otherwise they sat on a stool behind a bar. The food offerings for the price were very average.
Cons: There is an issue with the HVAC system in the entire hotel. The lobby had a very distinct musty smell and our room was the same way. When we got home, we had to wash all of our clothing that had been in the suitcases.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The parking is very easy. The underground garage has locked gate and plenty of spaces. Right across the street from the ocean. Sunsets are beautiful. Has everything you will need for a great trip.
Cons: It was all perfect.
7.9 Good
Cons: The air conditioner is pre set to only go to 70 degrees. Also when the ac runs it blows directly onto the beds, making it very cold and uncomfortable for the five minutes it is on. If there is was a way to direct the vent away from the head of the beds I couldn’t find it
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Really nice view and location. Also very clean.
Cons: For the price I paid I was really hoping better on the complementary breakfast

6.7 Good
Pros: I liked the breakfast and location of our room since it was close to an exit.
Cons: My kids and I got a few bug bites from the hotel room. I know there was some type of bugs in there cause we would wake up with them. The bathroom also had a weird/nasty sewage smell.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Clean, quiet, and relaxing
7.1 Good
Pros: It was a quiet nice location
Cons: The staff had no communication skills and made my check out process harder than it needed to be. Hear one thing from one person then something different from another really made it difficult
5.0 Okay
Pros: The front desk girl was nice. The room was clean.
Cons: Too far away from everything! The elevator didn’t work on the 3rd floor where my 6 years old grandson and I were staying. When I was told the elevator didn’t work on our floor I asked to move rooms to a different floor. I was told the hotel was full so I asked for a discount on my room since I paid over $300 a night. I was told the manager would give me a call..I NEVER heard from anyone. Therefore, I will not recommend this hotel to anyone and tell people to not stay there. The hotel was run down and not at all worth what I paid. Very disappointing!! Also, very unsafe to not have the elevator working!!!
10.0 Excellent

6.7 Good
Pros: Very helpful staff
Cons: Bathroom - shower, too low, hard to wash hair, no soap holder Tub - nothing to grab onto to get out of tub, VERY UNSAFE!!! !
7.5 Good
Pros: Beautiful property, very well kept. Amazing landscaping. Raj at the front desk was great.
Cons: Food very expensive for the quality it had. Food was ok yet very pricey. Nothing special. Waiter in the restaurant was not good, not attentive, we had to always look for him, he seemed annoyed by our questions. Forgot his name but I know he was Mexican as we asked him where he was from. We just wanted to look around at the Edge pool with our baby and got kicked out immediately, they did not even let us look around
4.6 Okay
Pros: I loved the views and the Lobby
Cons: The rooms, one of our rooms smelled like mold. The other one everything was falling apart.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Was very clean and spacious. The food was very good. Bed was comfortable.
Cons: Phones in room didn't work. The iron ruined my shirt and staff was indifferent. The service was poor especially for a $500/night room.
9.1 Excellent
Pros: The grounds were amazing and well kept
Cons: The rooms were good but a little dated.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The pool area and various hot tubs were great. My kids did not come with, but looked like they had a great setup for the kids. I did not get a chance to golf, but having the golf course on site is awesome.
Cons: The facility was a bit spread out, so getting to the various places, especially with luggage, was a bit complex at times. Would have been nice to have been located a bit closer to our conference. Also would have been nice if the resort had a shuttle or two that went to downtown Carlsbad or the Ocean, etc.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. The spa the view the room. It was a grear stay.
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location and several pools were a plus!
4.0 Okay
Pros: The pools, staff, and evening band were excellent.
Cons: The toilet was leaking. I called earlier about toilet issues and they sent somebody up to fix it. Later in the evening I noticed that it was leaking because my pants were wet.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Next time we pay that amount for a hotel room we would hope it not look and feel like a guest room in grandmothers home. Rooms are dated in furnishing, appearance, etc. they have used the old Spanish look as a crutch to not renovate and freshen up the facilities. Our stay at the Avirara was much more enjoyable And the accommodations and staff were exquisite. We will definitely stay there next time. The Omni was an “Omni” level disappointment.
Cons: Rooms needing update Spa staff was unwilling to allow for a day pass used on a Sunday even though my wife was going to get a massage and I was just going to use the Facilities. Bathroom shower grout Appeared visibly dirty. The bathroom had a musty smell about it as well.
6.5 Good
Pros: beautiful grounds, amazing amenities, gym is 1000x better than the photos show.
Cons: my impression is that it isn't worth it unless you are staying in the top-tier room. Ours was a standard room... long, far walk from all amenities and parking, basic room features that could use updating, weird bathroom/toilet/shower setup doesn't give any privacy, and TV was not operable 2 or the 3 nights we were there.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff was great, food was great, golf course was in wonderful shape, staff there was great too.
Cons: Our room, 802, smelled musty. We had to continuously sign back on to the free internet and sometimes it would take a half dozen attempts.
Lakehouse Hotel and Resort - Carlsbad - Building

8.7 Excellent (1,312 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Located in San Marcos, Lakehouse Hotel and Resort is on a lake, within a 15-minute drive of California State University San Marcos and California Center For The Arts. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, multilingual staff, and coffee/tea in a common area. Free self parking is available onsite.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The lake was pretty
Cons: Pool hours (9 am to 9 pm) were not convenient. There were no tables anywhere on the property to play cards or board games except for the pool area which was always locked in the early morning.
6.7 Good
Pros: It was quiet and peaceful.
Cons: There was no mini bar but they imposed $100 hold on the credit card after paying for the room. Strange practice. The lighting in my room wasn’t great. And some of the decor looks worn even after taking into account that they were trying to achieve that beach house aesthetic.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Cute quiet area in the middle of town. Amazing staff
5.4 Okay
Pros: The concept of the hotel was very cute. The lake was pretty
Cons: Check in was a disaster. The staff did not seem interested or engaging at all. The messed up my sisters registration by charging her card with my room. The girl needed assistance with voiding the transaction and re-running my sisters card on the correct room, which took approx. 30 minutes to do. My other sister was checked into a storage closet room for some unbelievable reason. When I checked in after my two sisters they could not reprint the reservation summary that you sign for incidentals, etc. so I did not sign anything. when I did get my room I had to ask for my room keys and if there was anything they needed to tell me about check in and check out, Wifi, etc.. The customer service just was not there in my opinion. Once in the room there was a musty smell that we could not get past. The carpet was dirty and had spots on it. The bed was comfortable and the shower was clean, which is a huge win. I was there with 5 others and wanted to play a board game outside by the pool in the morning at around 7am. Unfortunately, the pool area is closed and did not open until 9am. We walked the grounds to try to find a table outside that we could sit at and play a game while drinking our morning coffee but this was impossible to find. We got home from the beach and dinner and went to go to the pool area to swim as we saw several people swimming. We found a table and started to get in the pool but were told that we had to leave because the pool was closed at 9am. Again the pool was closed! Very disappointed in the hours of the pool especially because it is summer in California. The pool area was trashed by partiers from the day and there were chairs that were flipped over and tons of trash around. We sat in the pool area for about 15 minutes prior to being told that it was closed and did not see anyone from the hotel straightening up the area. This property has potential but has missed out on the little items that make a property wonderful.
7.5 Good
Pros: Location , views, activities
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful resort. Clean and available parking. Safe environment, I slept very well no early noise even though lake was outside my balcony.
Cons: Not enough washcloths there was one washcloth,very minor but annoying to a mother whose kid used the one washcloth in bathroom.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We were visiting family who live nearby so the location was excellent. The two pools were great! Staff were very nice and took care of any issues that arose. The beds are very comfortable and the bathroom showers are great
Cons: We had to move our room twice the first night we arrived due to a small bug issue. The housekeeping staff did not adequately clean our bathroom or replace some towels a few times but it was nothing serious. The pool can get very busy, especially on the weekend and towels can be scarce. That being said, I would definitely stay here again
7.9 Good
Pros: off the beaten path but close enough to drive, had a nice gym to workout, nice decor (thanks Carrie P!), felt like i was on vacation--relaxed setting. Personnel at checkout was pleasant. decor of hotel was great and modern. sheets on bed were comfy.
Cons: check-in time is late, check-out time is too early, nachos at the downstairs bar were the worst nachos i have ever had-they took it off my bill as I couldn't eat it--the cheese tasted awful, bartenders were very nice and beer selection was wonderful. there was a wet spot on carpet outside of our bathroom which was gruesome--wore our shoes to avoid stepping on the wet spot. It didn't smell so that was a good thing.
2.9 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Moldy carpet, mildew scent with staff not accommodating to your allergies of mildew/mold. I had to threaten the front desk clerk with my health concern to get another room. The worst part, I paid over $300/one night, while Groupon offered half price. Front desk said “we’re sorry “
7.5 Good
Pros: Nice pools, lake and restaurant
Cons: Dated building, rooms and bed. Only one elevator in different building
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great place for kids
Cons: Room service is poor
1.0 Poor
Pros: I liked the location ok. It was quiet and relaxing area
Cons: Our room was completely differnt than what we booked. Instead of a king bed, there were two full size beds. And instead of a lake view, we got a view of their parking lot. They refused to provide compensatio for there mistake. The Manager was very rude.

Pros: The employees were awesome, especially the gentleman that checked me in. He was awesome. Food was good and the kitchen area was smaller than other Hamptons but well stocked. Kitchen staff was very helpful. We used the pool and jacuzzi every night and the kids loved it. The hot tub was refreshing after a long day at Legoland. We would definitely stay again.
Cons: The view over the storage facility wasn't great. Parking was limited and one night I had to park at the hotel next door and walk a ways to get to the Hampton.

Pros: Great staff
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The staff were friendly and helpful with directions for shopping. Several options for breakfast.
Cons: The hotel is situated next to another hotel so, the parking is limited and we were not able to park in the same lot as our hotel for both nights of our stay. The hotel was fully booked so the breakfast area was very busy - limited seating.

Pros: Liked the pool and work out room.
Cons: Was hoping for a little more variety at breakfast.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Prompt service. I had an issue with the toilets and night perfume quickly. I needed a rollaway bed was delivered immediately.
Cons: It was nothing I didn't like. Touching was tight but you can't help that when you're trying to get guest in all in the same area adjacent to another hotel. If anything, I think the breakfast buffet wasn't plentiful. I generally stay at Hampton in other areas and I noticed the breakfast can either I have a large variety or Nothing at All. Still thankful for breakfast.

Pros: We enjoyed out stay at this property. Staff was friendly and efficient. Room was clean and comfortable which is very important to me. We ate at the restaurant and it was very good.
Cons: This is a very small detail, but represents comfort to me. While the property was remodeled recently and beautiful there were some details that bothered me. The doors to the rooms where scuffed and tacky looking. So it looks like they didn't replace the doors. The hook on the bathroom door was gone and the base was still there. Like I said small details, but important to me.

8.3 Excellent

9.6 Excellent
Pros: All staff was very friendly. My room was clean beds were comfortable. Great location, I would stay here again.
Cons: I did not like the how crowded it gets for breakfast and how the room keys get deactivated by getting close to an electronic like cell phone, tv or even car keys. I had got 2 keys, Mine got deactivated twice, first time I had to go to the reception to activate, went back to the room and it did not work. I went down again to front desk and the key was changed and the person at the front desk came with me to insure it worked, the second key was left in the room. Second time I went for breakfast when I came back to the room key did not work, good thing my mom was in the room or I would of had to go down to front desk again. Key process needs to be changed, everyone has electronics and it’s such an inconvenience to worry about something like that on vacation.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location and good breakfast
10.0 Excellent
Pros: You are literally right across the street from a great beach! We could walk down and swim and play for a few hours, go back and do other things, then head down again if we wanted! Amazing views! We saw dolphins (or porpoises?) while eating breakfast!
Cons: This is not a big deal . . . they only had pre-packaged breakfast foods, but that was because they were remodeling their kitchen and they posted a notice about it, so by the time someone else goes, the breakfast will probably be even better than it was!

7.1 Good
Pros: Have thought about this place before (rented at Tamarack across the street and love this beach.) Overall very good place to stay. Rented ocean view room at back of property (window at front looks out to ocean.) Space is large. Main room has kitchenette on one side with fridge/freezer, microwave, counter with sink, seating for two, barely enough plates and cups for two. Rest of main room has view to ocean, fireplace area, sofabed, dresser, and desk with chair. Bathroom was nice, no fan, just window vent. Other units front walls are on straight layout going from west at lobby/ocean end to east where our unit was. Bedroom was good, tv's worked well, bed was very firm. Dressers/nightstands were good, safe in closet. There is a pool and a spa, separate, in the courtyard, looked to be in good condition and several folks used each without complaints. Breakfast was plentiful and deck overlooks the (street below and) ocean. Good selection of fruit, breads, drinks, yogurt. Heatable breakfast sandwiches, waffles, etc. Automated pancake maker rolls off two at a time to your plate, kinda cool. Weekend attendant was very detailed and helpful. She was best part of staff, and the rest were good. There is a small elevator. Beach use of chairs (with cooler pockets), boogie boards, towels, and umbrella was helpful. Parking is somewhat clever and somewhat odd. Instead of ground floor units, (skinny) unassigned parking spots are laid out three to a section with two support posts or wall at the side of spot. We had a Nissan Altima rental, not huge, and it was interesting getting into several spaces (and in/out of car in some.) Not sure how I would have fit our SUV. At least there is parking, and ocean is across street, shops and restaurants are safely walkable.
Cons: No fans in bathrooms. Vent windows overlook walkway along the courtyard (smelly? embarrassing?) Location was quiet except at 3 am there was some mechanical whine that altered pitch back and forth for about 5 minutes and woke us up. This was at back of property, only happened one night. Sofabed needs upgrade, very creaky although teenager liked the novelty for two nights. See parking notes above, some good some eh. If you're looking for a late checkout, don't stay here.
7.1 Good
Pros: The location is great and the staff were friendly. The room was clean.
Cons: the bed was not comfortable and the air conditioner sounded like a jet engine. It was so loud I had to turn it off in order to sleep.
