U.S. News Review

Overlooking the Pacific from its seat about 5 miles south of Carlsbad, the Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort provides a great home base for beach-going families. Recent travelers say that the Hilton's pool area was large enough to keep the kids occupied for hours, and the free shuttle service to Legoland saves visitors the hassle of finding (and paying for) theme park parking. After a long day at the park, refuel at Chandler's Restaurant, which offers coastal cuisine that suits taste buds of all ages. As for accommodations, visitors will find guest rooms here are spacious and come equipped with flat-screen TVs, cozy beds and complimentary wireless Internet access. Guests who leave the kids at home can take advantage of the Ocean Crest Spa and a number of nearby world-class golf courses. Because of its Hilton connection, this resort takes part in the HHonors loyalty program.
