Many hotels say they’re kid-friendly, but the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort means it. The oceanfront property is so jam-packed with stuff for the younger set, the kids might forget LEGOLAND is nearby.
The updated Victorian property is filled with architectural details like a fieldstone foundation, wood beams and gabled roofs. There’s a heated outdoor pool with a deck and between the pool and the ocean views is an expansive lawn that’s just right for monkeying around.
Rooms and suites are decorated with sunset hues of soft orange and lemon yellow set against dark wood Queen Anne-inspired furnishings. Upgrade to a third floor room with expanded bathrooms and robes. You probably won’t want to spend much time in the room with all the activity options.
Spend a sunny day at the beach, and chase the waves on the hotel-provided boogie boards, or dig the world’s biggest sand fort. When you tire of the surf, sign the kids up for any of the day’s activities which could include pizza bingo, karaoke or the craft of the day. If mellower activities are called for, the hotel has board games and ping-pong tables in the activity center.
Prevent low blood sugar meltdowns with meals at the hotel's casual Mexican restaurant, a breakfast and lunch café or the yogurt shop for a quick pick-me-up.
If the main attraction on your trip is a visit to the best block party in town, LEGOLAND is only a 12-minute drive from the hotel.
