The pool was being resurfaced during my stay there, if I would have known that while I was booking the room, I may have considered choosing a different hotel, however ... overall, the stay and room was wonderful, and the staff was great.

Ocean view with balcony, giant waffles (other healthy choices for breakfast), very clean grounds, large spacious rooms, courteous and helpful staff. Location is a plus for Carlsbad beach and many walkable restarants.
