Nice ocean cute kitten in lobby. Only wish the Wi-Fi worked, bed wasn't lumpy and felt like springs, sink wasn't clogged in bathroom, only wish kids in other room slept at night and The Ocean View included a View Of Ocean. Highly recommended.

We had a king on the beachfront that was updated tastefully and very large. The only negative was the internet connection didn't work the majority of the time which other people on trip advisor have mentioned also. If you are on the 2nd or 3rd floor you can keep your sliding glass door open at night. The pool area was... More

Our family had a great stay at this Beach Resort Hotel. The view from the room of the Pacific Ocean was breath-taking. The Hotel staff were fantastic and provided excellent information for places to eat and visit. Thank you to all the staff at the Beach Terrace Inn

This places is AMAZING! I was impressed by the friendly employees from the moment we arrived until we left. The rooms are quite large, the beds are extremely comfortable, the breakfasts are delicious, and being able to leave the sliding door open to listen to the ocean waves as I drifted to sleep was spectacular. This was not just a... More

We have stayed here once before, it was great then, so we decided to book for our anniversary trip. The front desk is extremely helpful and booked us in the top floor ocean front corner suite facing north. Because it is our 25th wedding anniversary we received an excellent bottle of wine. This hotel is special because it is on... More

This hotel was amazing, the best money that I have ever spent on a vacation. The beach was amazing, to go to sleep to the sound of waves was priceless. The ocean view from the pool was also great! The room was gorgeous, in style, huge and the bathroom was so up to date! The hotel even offered beach chairs... More

This place is an absolute gem! The rooms are HUGE! If you have a view of the ocean its amazing and the people who work here are super nice. This is a family owned hotel, only hotel on the beach in Carlsbad which is priceless with kids. The pool area has beautiful lounge chairs all around to relax and enjoy... More

Carlsbad's best kept secret. One of the few hotels that you can still walk out of your room and be in sand, or in the pool. Plenty of reserved parking and never have to park in the street. The morning Continental Breakfast is the best and very generous especially when traveling with small children.

Gem of a hotel with an unobstructed view of the ocean, beach, and pool. Exquisite service. This hotel was exclusive and private. The sunset melted into the ocean. You couldn't ask for a better holiday. Two days felt like a week! Highly recommended especially for adults.

Location: This hotel sits directly on the beach. You are almost in the water!! We left our door open every night to listen to the waves of the Pacific Ocean. The street is very, very quiet and peaceful. This is a real West Coast beach town. 30 minutes from downtown San Diego. The town is very walkable and the traffic... More
