Get yourself a beachfront room! Trust me! When you walk into that room and see how close you are to the ocean, you'll be delighted you kicked in the extra $. Everything about the room is exquisite, including the shower! You will mostly appreciate the view and being able to practically touch the ocean! This has become my hotel of... More

This was our second stay. That should say something. Beautiful facility and very friendly staff. We had a problem with the lock on the sliding door. A very courteous person was right there and replaced the lock. Location is on the beach. There is no road between you and the surf and sunset. Walking distance to the Village

Beautiful resort hotel. Charming and beautiful sea views. Cant say enough. Room was excellent and so was the breakfast, staff and pool area. And I still miss the ocean view. Stayed in the Cabana suite. Will return next year for sure!

It was nice to hear you had such a great time in the Cabana level room. Being directly at the pool and beach level is very popular at the hotel. We hope to see you in the near future when time allows. In the meantime, "dream" about the views and beach. We will be here to help make your time... More

We live inland SD and wanted a couple of days getaway on the beach. The rooms were spacious, the beds were fantastic and the bathroom was super comfy and big. Great views and sunsets from our balcony. They have a nice breakfast with a view of the ocean, and Dorothy works hard to be sure everyone has everything you need.... More

We just returned from a very pleasant 2 night visit to this charming little hotel. It is right on the beach and a few minutes walk from Carlsbad Village. The young lady at reception was very helpful and as it was my birthday, she sent a bottle of wine to our room. A nice touch. The room was very large... More

Staff is especially great here. We have stayed several times over the Thanksgiving holidays. Be sure to ask for a beach front room. We have made the mistake of not clarifying this--and "ocean view" rooms may have a wee sliver of a view over brown rooftops ringed by pigeon-proof spikes. One other caution, don't get stuck in any of the... More

This is our second time staying here (first time was 2 years ago). This time we stayed in an ocean front room on the bottom level -- highly recommend it!!

Our ocean front rooom was great. Large living area and bathroom. The view was spectacular. The balcony included a love seat and two chairs which made the sunset viewing perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Everything about this place is great except the Wi-Fi. And when you are on the ocean, who really needs Wi-Fi? Very convenient to all the shops and restaurants Carlsbad has to offer. If there is anything else you need, someone will be ready to provide it at all times. We love this place. I would have liked the NFL network... More

Thank you for choosing to create a 'midweek special getaway' at the Beach Terrace Inn. We hope you had a great time! Your room tip to select Ocean Front is absolutely correct. A room with balcony directly over the sand and Pacific panorama remains the most popular. Many of our valued return guests choose 'Ocean Front' as an only option.... More

We booked a courtyard room, and we were disappointed to discover that it came with a view of the roof of a building a few feet away and that in order to see the small courtyard we had to walk to the edge of the balcony and look down. Fortunately we were able to negotiate moving to a pleasing room... More
