My wife and I wanted a nice romantic getaway to celebrate our anniversary. This place fit the bill perfectly. We stayed from Thursday to Sunday. We had an Ocean Front room on the 2nd floor. The view was incredible. We were able to sleep with the sliding glass door open and listen to the waves crash on the beach just... More

As all the reviews state, Carlsbad has a lot of cool stuff to do within walking distance. Not to be redundant with all the great reviews, I will only highlight the things that pop in my mind right now. The Staff and Service is excellent. We had an ocean front king, awesome view.

Dear Righty O, Thank you for choosing to stay at the Beach Terrace Inn. We are so pleased you had a great time at the hotel. As you stated, the Ocean Front King rooms are a value considering the privacy and unobstructed ocean views; they are our most popular room and are reserved early in peak seasons. Being located directly... More

The BTI has the very best location in the wonderful Carlsbad Village. Read the other 4 and 5 star reviews and believe every word. My wife and I stayed 5 nights in an ocean front king and couldn't have been happier. There are many very good and laid back restaurants just 2-4 short (walking distance) blocks away. This hotel really... More

We have stayed here many times, always excellent! It is the best hotel on the San Diego coast. The oceanfront rooms have gorgeous views and are literally right on the sand! So relaxing hearing the waves, sitting out on the spacious balconies. Walking distance to so many excellent restaurants, shops, etc. We just stayed 4 days, never got in our... More

We stayed here on a Sunday night to be able to attend a Monday wedding. The room we reserved was to be full ocean view. When we went to the room it was a pool level cabana room. That was not what we wanted so the staff quickly moved us to a room located on the level above the pool... More
