This hotel is directly on the sand. It has wonderful ocean views and various room types. The ocean front rooms are directly on the sand with great views and sounds of waves, they also have private balconies. If you opt for a courtyard view room there is plenty of access to ocean views (breakfast room, outdoor patio/deck area with chairs,... More

Beach Terrace Inn is in a good location, quiet with very helpful staff. The rooms are nice and it is located on the beach. We got the room on hotels tonight. Rooms have been redone and nicely decorated.

What a great little inn that is in the heart of Carlsbad and on the water. Rather than staying at a major chain hotel, we chose this smaller place because of the location and walking proximity to bars, restaurants, and the beach. It's in the middle of a neighborhood, which even makes it better for me. The staff was kind,... More

This was my first visit to southern California and I had a wonderful time. The Beach Terrace Inn is a beautiful hotel. Our room was very clean, beautifully decorated and had an amazing view of the ocean. We had a room with a balcony so we were able to leave the door open to listen to the waves. It was... More

My husband and I just returned from our stay at Beach Terrace Inn and loved it! Everything was nice and clean, walked every where we wanted to go. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the Dolphins and the amazing sun sets. Looking forward to bringing our Adult children and their wives back to Beach Terrace. Thank you again.

The Beach Terrace Inn is that rare hotel that has it all. Super staff, nice continental breakfast, comfy rooms, right price, right on the beach. You can walk to the Village for dining, shopping or whatever and of course, you are steps away from the sand. One day, we opted to not have room service. When we came back from... More

This was our 4th stay at the Beach Terrace Inn. Ever since "discovering" this gem on the beach it has been our favorite destination when visiting the southern California area. Tremendous room, terrific staff, wonderful breakfast on the deck overlooking the ocean, the sound of crashing waves, memorable sunsets, and love everything about The Beach Terrace Inn. We reserve the... More

When I went looking for "local" places where my husband and I could get away for a few days, my #1 priority was that our hotel be ON the beach. It's not easy to find such a place, but Beach Terrace Inn IS such a place. As some folks we met there said, "If you were to jump off your... More

Nice quiet hotel on the beach , pool overlooking beach with glass railing that keeps out the wind on cool days but does not obstruct view. Breakfast was very nice with muffins, pastries, bagels, fresh fruit and a good variety of yogurts and even cottage cheese. Rooms can,t be beat especially oceanfront rooms you can listen to the waves all... More
