Top tips for finding the perfect Carlsbad hotel

If you’re hoping to spend most of your Carlsbad vacation near the ocean, choose a hotel next to South Carlsbad State Beach, which is known for being a great spot for picnics, swimming, fishing, and surfing. The Holiday Inn Express & Suites is only a 10-minute walk away, with an outdoor pool and a fitness center.
If you enjoy flowers and gardening, book a hotel near The Flower Fields, which is a large garden where visitors can see many vibrant plants and purchase flowers to take home. The Grand Pacific Palisades Resort & Hotel is one option close by, offering a swimming pool, fitness center and restaurant onsite.
Because it’s easy to explore Carlsbad by car, try to book a hotel that offers free parking. Your options include Homewood Suites by Hilton Carlsbad-North San Diego County and the Extended Stay America-San Diego-Carlsbad Village by the Sea, with a swimming pool for guests.
Hoping to do some scenic hiking while in Carlsbad? Book a hotel near the Batiquitos Lagoon, such as the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort within 10 minutes’ drive from the lagoon. The Batiquitos Lagoon is a protected wetland that has a visitor’s center and a variety of walking and hiking trails.
For travelers who would like to see the historical side of Carlsbad, consider booking a hotel near the Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park, a historical house on a scenic property.
