Not a chain hotel. Beautiful room, right on the beach (NOT across the street) with ocean front balcony. My wife rested in my arms while we watched the sun set on the pacific ocean. Beautiful room, wonderful step in shower. The mattress is very, very firm with a pillow top on it: not too comfortable for us. One more thing:... More

Really, right on the beach and we took an Ocean Front room, which was exactly that. ON the beach! Fantastic view first thing in the morning when you open the curtains. Only the lovely sandy beach and the Pacific Ocean. Great to wake up and go to sleep with the sound of the waves. Truly as the hotel says -... More

Great little oceanfront hotel property in Carlsbad. Walking distance to shopping, entertainment and restaurants. Customer service is the best I have encountered, anywhere. The rooms are very clear and updated. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a vacation or short gateway.

We have been to the Beach Terrace Inn several times, but this stay was especially enjoyable. There seemed to be several staff members readily available to help out. There was one in particular, Richard. He was absolutely awesome! He helped us bring all of our bags and heavy ice chests to our room. Not to mention he had a great... More

The rooms are beautiful. The beach was so close we were there everyday. We used their towels,umbrellas,chairs,boogie boards and ate their breakfast at no extra charge. The staff is very accommodating with all our requests. You will not be disappointed with The Beach Terrace Inn. It was just AWESOME!!!

We stayed as a family for two nights after a wedding in the area. The views were amazing and we were thrilled to pay extra to stay right on the beach front room. That is until my husbands wallet and watch were stolen out of his pants that were hanging on our balcony. This was more than problematic considering we... More

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Beach Terrace Inn. We hope you had a great time at the beach and appreciate your comments. We sincerely regret the problems you had traveling back to the east coast because of the lost wallet. It is our hope the trip home was not too inconvenienced minus the necessary documents. While our... More

This was our 2nd trip to Beach Terrace Inn and it was lovely as usual. The room was spacious, comfortable and so many attention to details. We will continue to travel to this hotel yearly from now on!

If you can navigate stairs and aren't bothered by some noise, you should find the Beach Terrace Inn close to perfect, although it’s not without flaws. The first floor of the lower building is essentially right on the beach. While the balcony is raised a few feet off the sand, the sand comes right up to the balcony – on... More

We booked many months in advance to get the beach front condos #14,15 &16 as well as #60 overlooking the pool & ocean. They were spectacular. Right on the sand and next to the heated pool. Large enough to accommodate another bed or two if needed. Each came with a small refrigerator and large TV.The staff were great and very... More

My first time at Beach Terrace Inn, which I'd discovered on line. I sooo wanted to stay at a place right on the sand and found it in this charming place. I lucked out with a room right on the beach, sleeping all 5 nights with the sliding doors open to hear the ocean. Lots of lovely touches in this... More
