    Cape Rey Carlsbad Beach, A Hilton Resort & Spa
    Carlsbad, CA
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1722 reviewsTripAdvisor (1722)
    Free WiFi

    Overlooking the Pacific from its seat about 5 miles south of Carlsbad, the Cape Rey Carlsbad Beach 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, though several recent guests thought the rooms should be updated. Guests who leave the kids at home can take advantage of the spa and a number of nearby world-class golf courses. Because of its Hilton connection, this resort takes part in the Hilton Honors loyalty program.

    Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa
    Carlsbad, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1418 reviewsTripAdvisor (1418)
    Free WiFi

    With private access to LEGOLAND, the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa (located about 35 miles north of San Diego) is geared toward family travelers. Recent guests praise the family-oriented packages and the accommodating staff who make traveling in numbers hassle free (the hotel is even pet-friendly). Previous visitors said that they felt like they never had (or wanted) to leave the premises, except to head to nearby theme parks. The on-site restaurant, TWENTY/20, earns praise for its tasty Californian cuisine and the Ocean Pearl pool/spa combo keeps both kids and adults satisfied. However, some do warn that room prices at this Sheraton resort can be quite high. Book as far in advance as possible and take advantage of the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program to earn points and perks.
