Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


An ideal family vacation pairs fun activities for kids with some R&R for parents. The Grand Pacific Palisades Resort and Hotel provides just that and more. 

An interactive water park keeps the kids entertained while parents relax in the second adults-only pool. Airy guest rooms have free Wi-Fi and balconies or patios. Villa suites are stocked with all the comforts of home -- including full kitchens and sofa beds. Grab a bite at the on-site Karl Strauss Brewery Restaurant or take the free shuttle to Twenty/20 at the nearby Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa. 

Surrounded by natural beauty, the hotel overlooks the Pacific Ocean and the Carlsbad Flower Fields -- 50 acres of blooming flora and fauna that showcase Carlsbad's rich farming roots (open seasonally). Being in Southern California, guests can enjoy 72-and-sunny weather almost year-round.

The hotel has a private entrance to LEGOLAND® California Resort, home to more than 50 rides and attractions including the world's first LEGO® themed Water Park and SEA LIFE® Aquarium. 

The "once-sleepy" seaside town of Carlsbad "has long been popular with beach goers and sun seekers" (Fodor's). Travel + Leisure describes this beachside community as "quieter and quainter" than the neighboring cities with "miles of coastline ... for swimming and surfing." The Crossings at Carlsbad Golf Course and the Carlsbad Premium Outlets are one mile from the hotel. Downtown San Diego is about a 45-minute drive south of Carlsbad.

Enjoyed Most: They were able to give us early check in and 1 hour later check out. They offer a shuttle to local areas.
Other Comments: Woke up to drilling noises in the room next door at 8am. Talked to front desk about it, they apologized, said it was the cable company upgrading their cable to HD. Our room had standard cable, not HD. Multiple messages on our phone regarding offers on future hotel stays. Dirty grout in bathroom, wallpaper had stains on it. We had to ask them to waive the resort fee, and charged us twice for the city fee, and it took a while at the front desk to figure out.
