We just returned from our long awaited week visit to the Beach Terrace Inn and the town of Carlsbad. The location can't get any better than this, you are directly on the beach. We had a king deluxe room with direct water views on the second floor, the room was amazing, as well as the enormous bathroom, you could actually... More

As others have stated, the location, directly on the beach is unparalleled. Despite all the coastline in San Diego County very few locations offer direct, beach access without having to a cross a railroad track or 4 lane road. The rooms are very comfortable and very clean. The breakfast offerings are welcomed but no cook to order items. They do... More

We had a three night stay here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a wonderful experience. Greeted warmly at reception and offered assistance with our bags (we were ok). We stayed in Room 18 - fabulous views right along the coast and over the beach. We were especially delighted to receive a gift from the hotel and a lovely... More

I stayed at the Beach Terrace Inn just after hiking for 16 days on the John Muir Trail, and the luxurious accommodations and beach front location were just what I needed to recover. The room was well appointed, beds were very comfortable (and you can request special types of pillows to suit your needs). I also enjoyed the pool (very... More

Very nice hotel and location. The bad part is too many stairs and not enough elevators to get from one place to another. Stairs to the pool, stairs to the beach. We couldn't get to either spot b/c my husband can't do stairs.

It was a perfect place for a relaxing 25th anniversary getaway! The room was beautiful and I love having a wet bar and refrigerator to keep drinks and snacks handy. The location is ideal since it is not only right on the beach but easy walking distance to restaurants and shops.

The Beach Terrace Inn is a lovely spot, right on the beach. There is easy access to the sand from the hotel and beach chairs and umbrellas for your use. The room we had, with a balcony overlooking the sand and the ocean, was spacious, very well equipped and cleaned to a high standard. Enjoyed the early mornings looking at... More

Although the amenities, cleanliness and location of this Inn were very good, the corner room that my sister and I reserved 2 months ago in person was not available because the guests who occupied it stayed over for additional days beyond their reserved time. The clerk assigned us to another room which I thought was a pretty shabby way to... More

This is our favorite beach hotel. We have returned 3 years in a row. It has a great location right on Carlsbad Beach. We love how you can literally walk out of your room and onto the beach. The rooms are large, modern, and comfortable. We always like to reserve the Ocean Terrace View room with ceiling to floor windows... More
