This place is legit because its literally right on the beach. There are a lot of hotels near the beach, but VERY few right on the beach in California. This is one of them. You can walk right out of your room onto the sand.

This is the ideal spot for anyone out of town coming for the beach vibe. This hotel is literally right on the sand, and depending which room you stay in you may be able to walk out your door and be pretty much on the beach. If the water is too cold, which it rarely is in SoCal, you can take a dip in the pool which gives you great views of the ocean and beach. The rooms are very cozy and open and the shower has an awesome rain shower head.

I absolutely loved this boutique hotel right on the water in Carlsbad - it's apparently the only hotel in the area allowed to be on the sand, so your front door literally opens up to the beach. It's a perfect blend of old beach house feel blended with modern comfort - the bathrooms are huge and the showers luxurious with rain faucets, but then the adirondack chairs on the decks and the adorable lobby with a fireplace and floor to ceiling windows made me feel like I was at my childhood summer beach home. The breakfast room is cozy with neutral color accents and bright views of the ocean, while the outside deck gives you a fresh breath of that salty sea air. Of course, if the salt ocean isn't your thing, their pool (surrounded by glass-paned walls that allow a view of the beach right outside) is a perfect substitute. I could lounge here all day.

Fantastic rooms, and the VIEW!! Literally right on the beach, with the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep. For such a great hotel, I would have liked to see better customer service... There was a pretty snarky front desk associate during the evening. But honestly, I'd absolutely stay there again just for the rooms and view! Fun neighborhood, too.

I found this place on Trip Advisor and it was fantastic! It is ON THE BEACH---sand underneath you, sort of thing. Staff was great, rooms were huge and the views unforgettable.
