I found this hotel by looking at Google maps for which hotels were actually on the beach (not across a road from it) . The rooms are huge. There is plenty of shampoo and conditioner. The continental breakfast is classy, hits the spot, and you can eat it while watching dolphins jump in the ocean. You can get your choice... More

My wife and I had a wonderful experience at the Beach Terrace Inn. All of our interactions with the staff were excellent. They were very friendly and accomodating. The rooms are huge and the bathrooms and showers are giant as well. The location directly on the beach is unmatched and you are only a short walk from the fun downtown... More

This was a return trip for us and we can't imagine staying anywhere else. The ocean view rooms are amazing. The rooms are absolutely huge and comfortable. We could enjoy sitting on the balcony or with the large picture window enjoy the view from inside. Very friendly and accommodating staff, they surprised us with a gift basket ordered by our... More

My husband, daughter and I stayed here for my 60th birthday. What a treat!! I can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was. The room was spacious & clean, view was spectacular, bed was comfy and, most of all, the staff provided the best customer service I've ever experienced at a hotel! It was the perfect place to kick...

I've been reading TA reviews for years but never felt the need to write one until my visit to the Beach Terrace Inn last week. The room was large (two queen beds), with a spacious bathroom, a balcony (we were able to see whales and dolphins from the patio), and a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean. We stayed 5... More

Stayed at Beach Terrace Inn last year for Village street fair and returned since we had such a comfortable and enjoyable time. Continental breakfast is served which made for a relaxing morning -- no need to rush out to find a diner and wait to be served. We upgraded to an ocean front room this year which provided a wonderful... More

We found this hotel on Trip Advisor and found it to be an excellent choice. We went to celebrate by husband's birthday. The room, hotel and staff were outstanding. They offer many different specials to help reduce the price of the rooms. They have a mid-week by 2 get 1 free and also a save 20% if you pre-pay for... More

Our family had a special event for which The Beach Terrace Inn​ accommodated us. The ocean front room was perfect for us with the most comfortable bedding EVER! Carlsbad, CA offered so many awesome places to see and things to do, but honestly, we all agreed that spending the entire time at the Inn would've been our best choice. From... More

This is our second time at the Beach Terrace Inn. We were there a couple of years ago for a babymoon and enjoyed it so much that we have been looking for another reason to go. Both times we stayed in a king ocean front room. The room is huge with a desk, mini bar, and two oversized, comfy chairs.... More

My husband and I spent three nights here to celebrate his birthday. We opted for a beachfront corner room (#18), and it was well worth the money. Our balcony was spacious and directly over the sand -- we spent hours there and saw whales and dolphins. We used the pool and hot tub, and both were quite nice. The breakfast... More
