Where to stay in Carlsbad

Accommodations in Carlsbad run the gamut from quaint bed and breakfasts to five-star luxury resorts. You can stay in the heart of the action by booking a room downtown, where you'll be near the beach and have access to the city's most popular bars and restaurants. If you've come to town to explore the area's renowned golf and tennis opportunities, look for resorts with excellent facilities in La Costa, a suburban residential neighborhood. If you seek a more rustic experience, take advantage of the city's mild weather and natural surroundings by camping on Carlsbad State Beach.
