Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara, North San Diego

Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara, North San Diego Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This isn't a typical Four Season in that it is a condominium complex, not a luxury hotel. The complex is massive, with two "neighborhoods" called (Summits and Meadows), each with its own heated outdoor pool and small fitness center. Because this is more a residence than a hotel, the vibe here is a lot more laid-back than at other Four Seasons properties -- there's no fine dining restaurant (just poolside snack bars), and the expansive grounds give it an outdoorsy feel that many guests enjoy. But the actual rooms have the typical Four Seasons upscale classic American look, with a beige-and-blue color scheme and lots of hardwood accents. Guests can rent a Superior Room with a kitchenette or upgrade to one of the one- or two-bedroom villas and residences, with lots of living space and a full kitchen. Overall, the Four Seasons is a solid choice especially for families -- it's in a quiet area (right by a golf course) and gives guests the option of cooking meals in their kitchens/kitchenettes.
Park Hyatt Aviara Resort

Park Hyatt Aviara Resort Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The luxe Park Hyatt Aviara Resort features Spanish colonial architecture and a picturesque setting just north of the Batiquitos Lagoon wildlife sanctuary. This property was formerly a Four Seasons, and the switch from one luxury brand to another didn't impact the hotel's luxurious ambiance. The 329 guest rooms are clean and spacious with classic decor, modern amenities, and large balconies. There are several on-site restaurant options. Though an adults-only pool and spa are attractive for couples, the hotel is mostly popular with families who stay here while visiting nearby Legoland. Most guests aren't happy to be charged for required valet parking on top of a daily resort fee.
Omni La Costa Resort and Spa

Omni La Costa Resort and Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 400-acre, 611-room megaresort near Legoland is packed with family features, including large rooms, six pools with waterslides, and an impressive kids club. The spa, golf courses, tennis courts, and on-site shopping help ensure adults have fun as well, but there are extra fees for almost everything.
LEGOLAND California Hotel

LEGOLAND California Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Almost every inch of LEGOLAND California Hotel is a Lego experience, from the character visits at the free breakfast, to the daily Lego building contests, to the nightly entertainment in the lobby's castle. Access to the amusement park isn't included in the rate, but guests do get early morning access, allowing them to beat the crowds. Rooms have fun adventure, pirate, or kingdom themes, and all have separate kids' rooms with bunk beds. This property caters to parents with two- to 12-year-olds, so guests should be prepared for the noise and occasional messes that can accompany so many children. Grand Pacific Palisades Resort & Hotel next door lacks all the official Lego allure, but it's a suitable alternative for those looking to spend half as much on their lodging and still be within walking distance to the theme park.
Beach Terrace Inn

Beach Terrace Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The Beach Terrace Inn is a boutique-style hotel whose stated mission is to create a climate of relaxation for its guests, which the family-owned establishment calls getting "slow." It's only a few minutes off Interstate 5, providing easy access to popular attractions in the area, such as the inimitable Legoland. The rooms are large by any standard, and many have excellent ocean views. The hotel accommodates families, including young children, but is much more suited to couples seeking a relaxing holiday.
Hilton Grand Vacations Club at MarBrisa

Hilton Grand Vacations Club at MarBrisa Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The Hilton Grand Vacations Club at MarBrisa is an upper-middle-range timeshare property with 128 rooms and a private entrance to Legoland. A golf course, shopping center, and restaurants are within walking distance, but a car is best for those who plan to leave the property. Rooms are large with full kitchens and balconies, but there’s nothing spectacular about them, and some receive noise from Legoland. The property includes two pools, only one of which is heated, and two oddly shaped whirlpools that are open year round. Free Wi-Fi and parking are available throughout the resort, and there is an airport shuttle for a fee.
Ocean Palms Beach Resort

Ocean Palms Beach Resort Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 52 rooms at the Ocean Palms Beach Resort are homey and inviting, with tropical paintings and accents, vibrant bedding, and sea-washed furnishings. This mid-range hotel is a short walk to the beach and provides a lot of amenities including beach towels, boogie boards, surf boards, and lounge chairs for guests to borrow. Guests appreciate the friendly staff and beautiful, peaceful grounds -- including an outdoor pool and hot tub area, putting green, fire pits, and barbecue grills. There’s no restaurant on-site, but all rooms are equipped with dining areas and kitchens for in-room cooking. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach

Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 161-room Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach is a mid-range property across the street from the beach. It has an outdoor pool and hot tub, a small fitness center, and tiny business center. Guest rooms are comfortable and functional, and have Keurig coffeemakers, iPod docking stations, mini-fridges, and microwaves; some rooms have ocean views. There's free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, and the on-site Carlsbad Beach Bistro gets excellent reviews. On-site parking comes with a daily fee. The hotel offers a free shuttle service to anywhere within a five-mile radius, but a car is best for getting around.
Homewood Suites by Hilton Carlsbad-North San Diego County

Homewood Suites by Hilton Carlsbad-North San Diego County Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Homewood Suites by Hilton Carlsbad-North San Diego County is a mid-range, 145-all-suite hotel located across from the McClellan-Palomar Airport. All suites feature full kitchens, and separate sleeping and living quarters. Free services include a hot breakfast, Wi-Fi, dinner buffet (this can get quite crowded) and drinks during the week, and grocery shopping. There’s a small fitness center with a handful of equipment, a small outdoor pool and hot tub, and a business center with meeting rooms.
Carlsbad Seapointe Resort

Carlsbad Seapointe Resort Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Carlsbad Seapointe Resort's large, modern condos are convenient for families, with full kitchens and (in most) ocean views. It's across the street from the beach and has lots of kid-friendly activities, including a family pool with a water play area, a playground, fire pits for marshmallow roasting, and miniature golf. But it's a 10-minute drive to the restaurants and shops in downtown Carlsbad, and the beach could be nicer.
