Monday Madness: Win a Beach Vacation and LEGOLAND Tickets in Carlsbad, CA

Win a Hilton Garden Inn LEGOLAND getaway

Some hotels stand out from all the rest because they possess the true quality of hospitality. Hilton Garden Inn, Carlsbad Beach is not your average HGI. In fact, it has been rated one of the top 3 in the country! Parents will appreciate the 2013 TripAdvisor Award of Excellence and the affordable price but kids will be thrilled at how close they are to LEGOLAND and the beach. This HGI is home to tons of new upgrades and is in store for a lobby and restaurant renovation later in the year.

Hilton Garden Inn, Carlsbad Beach


When we visited HGI, we were most impressed by the friendliness of all of the staff. They were ready with a smile to help us with anything we needed (and sometimes just wanted!) The kid’s faces lit up with the frozen Otter Pops they brought by the pool and I was just so happy to have our room cleaned by someone other than myself. The beds were luxurious and so cozy after a busy day at the beach and swimming at the pool. We watched a family movie under the stars together with popcorn and blankets brought by staff. Hilton Garden Inn knows just how to make families happy with beautiful & affordable rooms, complimentary WiFi, a heated pool, and fun family-friendly activities (like Pasta Nights, Beach parties, and summer movies on the lawn). Enjoy a delicious breakfast (lunch and dinner too!) with made-to-order omelets at their signature restaurant, Carlsbad Beach Bistro.

The Hilton Garden Inn is located in the perfect spot to have an unobstructed view of the California sun dipping into the Pacific. Beach access is directly across the street from HGI and that beautiful coastline stretches for five miles, which makes for a great day at the beach. Guests can walk north into Carlsbad Village for good food and shopping. The Disneyland Resort is approximately 1 ½ hours to the north while SeaWorld and the San Diego Zoo are about 45 minutes to the south making HGI Carlsbad Beach an affordable base camp.

Carlsbad Activities


The city of Carlsbad, just north of San Diego, is like a treasure chest of fun activities for families. LEGOLAND is the big draw with LEGO-themed rides and roller coasters. Kids will love the LEGO-building play areas and Miniland’s tiny LEGO replicas of famous scenes. Right next door, with access through the park, is the LEGOLAND Water Park where kids and parents can swim, splash, and ride tubes. Walk through the SEA LIFE Aquarium to see amazing creatures of the deep and LEGO figures that interact with them. Take a complimentary shuttle ride from Hilton Garden Inn to LEGOLAND and get picked up at the end of a great day.

Carlsbad State Beach is just to the west where the white sand meets the surf and kids play happily for hours. Guests can rent beach chairs & umbrellas from HGI to enjoy across the street at the beach. Visit the Carlsbad Flower Fields in the spring to see gorgeous colors bursting in bloom with kid-friendly activity stations and a sweet pea maze set throughout. Take budding musicians to the Museum of Making Music and test out all kinds of instruments. There is so much to do in Carlsbad, it takes a whole beach vacation to enjoy them all!
