We have stayed here over 5 times; love this hotel, great location within walking distance to the Carlsbad village shops and restaurants. Good free breakfast every morning. The hotel offers beach towels and chairs.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to get away with our 5 year old son. Incredibly friendly staff. Location and views were perfect. The room was great. This is not a resort with a ton of people, it's the perfect place for a quaint little beach trip with your family. Walking distance to everything. We never used the... More

The location itself is superb - right by the sea with direct access to the beach (no need to cross the road or whatsoever). The room was really just OK, but I guess who cares about the room when you have the nice panorama sea view at the balcony (if you pay up for the seaview rooms)...

We stayed in an ocean front king room - it was amazing to look out the window and just see the ocean, with the sound of the waves crashing. The room was updated and very clean, and the free breakfast, internet, and parking contributed to the great value of this hotel. We would definitely return!

Went to Beach Terrace with my husband and two older teenagers. From the moment I stepped into registration, it was a great experience. The young men at the front desk were welcoming, explaining all the amenities, answered all my questions. The room was very clean and we had a great location over the beach (room 14). Our only regret was... More

We just spent another awesome weekend at our favorite inn on the beach. From Guest check in, hospitality and the very polite and helpful pool and beach staff (Michael and Richard), our stay was made very pleasant. My husband and I are returning guests and have stayed multiple times, both alone, with my son and his family and even a... More

We decided to stay at Beach Terrace Inn for a weekend. Rates are reasonable and the views are breathtaking. Upon arrival, we noticed a foul odor in the room. We suspected maybe some fruit was left behind and began fermenting. Upon entering the restroom, we noticed the toilet was not clean. Someone got sick and food particles were behind the... More
