We have been to the Beach Terrace Inn several times, but this stay was especially enjoyable. There seemed to be several staff members readily available to help out. There was one in particular, Richard. He was absolutely awesome! He helped us bring all of our bags and heavy ice chests to our room. Not to mention he had a great... More

The rooms are beautiful. The beach was so close we were there everyday. We used their towels,umbrellas,chairs,boogie boards and ate their breakfast at no extra charge. The staff is very accommodating with all our requests. You will not be disappointed with The Beach Terrace Inn. It was just AWESOME!!!

We stayed as a family for two nights after a wedding in the area. The views were amazing and we were thrilled to pay extra to stay right on the beach front room. That is until my husbands wallet and watch were stolen out of his pants that were hanging on our balcony. This was more than problematic considering we... More

This was our 2nd trip to Beach Terrace Inn and it was lovely as usual. The room was spacious, comfortable and so many attention to details. We will continue to travel to this hotel yearly from now on!

If you can navigate stairs and aren't bothered by some noise, you should find the Beach Terrace Inn close to perfect, although it’s not without flaws. The first floor of the lower building is essentially right on the beach. While the balcony is raised a few feet off the sand, the sand comes right up to the balcony – on... More

We booked many months in advance to get the beach front condos #14,15 &16 as well as #60 overlooking the pool & ocean. They were spectacular. Right on the sand and next to the heated pool. Large enough to accommodate another bed or two if needed. Each came with a small refrigerator and large TV.The staff were great and very... More

My first time at Beach Terrace Inn, which I'd discovered on line. I sooo wanted to stay at a place right on the sand and found it in this charming place. I lucked out with a room right on the beach, sleeping all 5 nights with the sliding doors open to hear the ocean. Lots of lovely touches in this... More

Quiet. Peaceful. Clean. From the room to the common areas to the pool we enjoyed all the details that were non-fussy but noticed. European feel with wonderful beds, very spacious rooms and bathrooms. Private beach. We even switched rooms and the staff insisted they move our things for us. We can't wait to stay here again.

Had a wonderful weekend in Carlsbad, starting with this fabulous hotel. Ocean view rooms are amazing and large, even came with two wine glasses, a corkscrew and robes. Did I say Right On The Beach! Long strolls on the shoreline, wine on the balcony, pool not crowded, it was Heaven. Staff worked wonders to make our weekend fantastic, Kudos to... More

Stayed here two nights, beautifully refurbished, over-sized rooms. Our room had a direct ocean view and very nice balcony. Hotel is within walking distance to the village and many nice restaurants. We had a terrific stay, however, gal at front desk made a very poor customer service decision. We asked on Saturday for a late check-out. Guy at front told... More
