From the moment we got there the staff was friendly and attentive. They went out of there way to make our stay special. In one word 'attentive'. We were there to get away, relax and celebrate our 7th anniversary. After the first day the staff knew we wanted solitude and left a basket at our door with enough towels,soap etc..... More

Spent 3 days at this fabulous Inn in Carlsbad, Ca. The staff was warm and friendly. They provide for free, beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, and boogie boards. The staff even takes all of these to the sand and sets it all up for you. Amazing views of the pool and ocean from my room. Provided free breakfast in the Guest... More

This was our first experience staying at the Beach Terrace Inn. We loved it. We got a beach front room with a balcony and enjoyed being able to sit on the balcony, watching and listening to the waves coming and going, and people of all ages playing in the surf. Spent some time by the beach. The room was large... More

My husband and 1 year old daughter and I stayed here, it was perfect for us. This is not a resort style hotel if that's what you're looking for, but it's a perfect location, quiet, right on the beach, and updated hotel. The rooms are spacious, the offer a continental breakfast (mostly fruit and pastries) so we still needed more... More

We had a great stay. Loved the location, the view, the beach. The staff across the board were friendly and helpful. The room was big, clean and very comfortable. Initially, the pillows smelled a bit - but they switched them out for us. I thought the $40 charge for a rollaway was steep. Our room rate was already quite high.... More

Our room was nice & spacious with a gorgeous bathroom. We didn't have a full ocean view, but the description of our partial ocean view was exactly accurate. We had a couple of rollaways and one was pretty awful, which was graciously switched out for us and the charge for it removed for the night we used it. We loved... More

We've stayed at this hotel before and is one of our first choices when staying in Carlsbad. It is the perfect location if you have kids because it is beach front and you have access to towels, chairs, umbrellas, showers and most important bathrooms while at the beach.

View and location are great. Staff, except for Matthew, are rude/uninterested. They advertise free wifi but forget to mention that wifi doesn't work at all- front office admits that only room 15 has wifi. They advertise free beach chairs but they run out by 11 daily. Bathroom has no air conditioning so is a humid hot hell. Not at all... More

For the past two years, my partner and I have come to stay at this wonderful, wonderful place. Every single visit for us has been nothing short of perfection, and we have never left feeling dissatisfied. From the very start, the staff here has always been so helpful, and extremely friendly. I myself work in the hotel business, so I... More

A cozy boutique hotel with a family feel to the staff. Rooms are all remodeled and kept in fantastic condition. This property is right on the beach with fantastic views. Ocean view rooms are highly recommended and we enjoyed sleeping with the balcony door open all night to hear the surf. Also enjoyed the ocean view from our private balcony,... More
