The Hotel was recommended to me by a close friend. It is all it says it is. A family owned, friendly, clean, modern paradise. We stayed in the room below the lobby. It was on a corner and we could overlook the pool and ocean from the open window, out the door or sitting in the small seating area outside... More

From the outside, it seemed like another hotel on the beach but once you walk in the door to check.....what a refreshing place! The front desk (Prudence and Sean) were very down to earth and friendly and already I knew I was going to have a great time. We went to our room on the first floor via the elevators.... More

This place was perfectly described by the many comments of reviewers. RIGHT on the beach with breathtaking views and an excellent, accommodating staff. Breakfast had plenty of food & drink options and the coffee was well above average. The beachfront rooms are huge and well maintained; also hard to beat the sound of pounding surf for a couple of days... More

My wife and I stayed here for the first week of March, and it was delightful, particularly if you enjoy watching and listening to the ocean. We left the balcony door open each night, even though the temperature got cool, because we loved listening to the waves. Sunsets were beautiful and watching the tides roll in and out was something...

My husband and I stayed at Beach Terrace Inn with our 10 month old baby for 4 nights at the end of February. Everything from check in to check out went great. I had phoned ahead to ask for a pack n play and a microwave and both were in our room upon arrival. There was also a note in... More

We picked this hotel because it was on the beach and in Carlsbad. It has it all! The Ocean at your feet, a great pool, beautiful rooms, a fantastic breakfast, unbelievable views, and great staff. We were able to walk to great restaurants near the hotel and enjoy the small town charm of Carlsbad. We upgraded to an ocean view... More

We stayed at the Beach Terraces in February. The location is wonderful, I couldn't ask for a more restful place. They provide a wonderful breakfast also overlooking the beach.. I loved looking out over the ocean all day long until the gorgeous sunset. We were able to walk everywhere and enjoy the town, the shops, and the beach. I have... More

This hotel used to be a Best Western years ago, and it is much improved now as the Beach Terrace Inn. We enjoyed a romantic get away and paid the upcharge for an end unit full view of the ocean. The crash of the waves was audible 24/7 and we loved it. The bed however was too soft and both... More

Right on the beach. Within easy walking distance to restaurants. Accommodating staff. Great room with plenty of pillow choices. Coffee outside your room isn't available until 7 AM so if you rise early and drink coffee, request extra packets. Housekeeping didn't arrive until 4:30 PM. We were back in our room getting rest before dinner. You can request an earlier... More

We stayed in an ocean view room and it was amazing. The room was large and very nice, with an equally large bathroom. The deck included two chairs plus a loveseat to sit and watch the waves. Left the door partially open the entire time we were there to listen to the waves crashing. Just walk down the stairs and... More
