Carlsbad Premium Outlets Review

Located near the beach, Carlsbad Premium Outlets is an attractive outdoor center featuring Tuscan-inspired architecture, water fountains, and large potted plants that give it a tropical feel.

Having visited the outlet mall on two occasions, once in 2014 and 2015, both experiences were similar.

  • Convenience and Parking

Carlsbad Premium Outlets is conveniently located right off of Interstate 5 off Palomar Airport Road. Getting in and out of the center was very easy.

Both trips to the center were during the week and parking was not an issue, however, on busy weekends I can see where it could be a problem. With that in mind, weekend shoppers may want to plan to get to the center in the early morning or early evening hours, or check to see if valet parking is available.

  • Mix of Outlet Stores and Prices

Carlsbad is not a huge outlet mall, but there is a fantastic mix of outlet stores that offer shoppers a variety of price points. Shoppers can find expensive luxury brands like Dooney & Bourke, Elie Tahari, Theory, and Tumi and the more affordable national outlet stores like Nike Factory Store, Gap, and Under Armour.

Prices were typical of outlet mall pricing, with the savings averaging around 30 percent off retail, plus additional savings with coupons and in-store promotions. During my first visit, Coach was running an additional 50 percent off your entire purchase which was a real savings for Coach lovers.

The employees in the stores were attentive and the inventory in the stores was neater and more organized than what I have found at many of the outlet centers.

  • Getting Around

The center was well maintained. There were no overflowing garbage cans or litter around the seating areas. The bathrooms were clean, but finding one was not so easy. Be sure to print the outlet map and plan accordingly.

There is a decent selection of places to eat, although most of the restaurants are short order.

  • Bottom-Line

Carlsbad Premium Outlets is a five-star outlet and whenever I am in San Diego and I want to go shopping, this is one of the centers I'll plan on visiting.
