I had such an amazing time at this hotel. I actually shed a tear when we had to leave and jumped for joy when we got in the room (King, north corner, ocean view). The room was beautiful, the balcony overlooking the ocean was incredible. The wine, cheese and fruit basket was perfect! The breakfast was nice in the ocean... More

The Beach Terrace is one of the best beachfront hotels I have experienced. It is right on the beach, sand and water right off your balcony. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed. The staff is helpful and accommodating. You honestly can't ask for more from this type of hotel. I travel to Carlsbad just to stay at the Beach Terrace.

We stayed in the King room with our two boys and it was huge. Although it has a sofa, there is no sofa bed. We used pillows and put our kids on the floor to avoid rollaway charges. There was tons of room and we could still access the balcony. The bathroom was huge as well. We spent a lot... More

The room was ok....a little musty and a back up smell in the shower. Wi Fi didn't work . Asked about it and was directed to an outside trouble line....ummmmm!!! Front desk person was rude and condescending . Unsure that I would want to recommend it.

We had stayed quite a few years ago. Since that time, the hotel has been completely redone. We had a beautiful beachfront room. The hotel is in a wonderful location, and the staff was very nice. Will definitely return.

We have family in Carlsbad and have visited frequently over the past several years. We have stayed at the Beach Terrace Inn several times, and will definitely be back. The beachfront rooms are beyond compare for this area and we will be back!

This is my home town and I just wanted to relax at a nice place right on the beach. Would have been great but they said we would have a room ready before check in which was really great however check in time came and went before we were let into our room. Sort of a bummer to pay all... More

We had a corner room on the beach, which was AMAZING! We absolutely will be back! We had an incredible time! We did not want to leave. A lot of places in an easy walking distance to anywhere to eat, and they have a good continental breakfast for free too!
