As we were headed south and extremely tired, but wanted something right on the beach. We had stopped at another hotel but they were full and the manager told us of another place, Beach Terrace in in Carlsbad California. I called ahead to find out about the rooms and they did have one available. The young lady was extremely friendly... More

The staff is wonderful: there when you need them, invisible when you don't. The rooms are gorgeous from the wide range of pillow-design choices to the foot wipes in the bathroom. Oceanfront or not, you can hear the sea in every room. Shopping and restaurants all in walking distance. It's the best.

Beachfront room and balcony with views that just didn't stop! Staff friendly with clean rooms and hotel. Free beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels so you can pack light. I mean, you can watch the waves through the glass shower! How can you complain? Best birthday present!

Not a chain hotel. Beautiful room, right on the beach (NOT across the street) with ocean front balcony. My wife rested in my arms while we watched the sun set on the pacific ocean. Beautiful room, wonderful step in shower. The mattress is very, very firm with a pillow top on it: not too comfortable for us. One more thing:... More

Best Inn on the Beach as far as I am concern. You are right on the beach, any closer and you would be in the ocean. Nothing like falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. Already booked a week in April, & September for next year. The staff is fantastic ,always smiling ,always there for any of your needs.... More

Really, right on the beach and we took an Ocean Front room, which was exactly that. ON the beach! Fantastic view first thing in the morning when you open the curtains. Only the lovely sandy beach and the Pacific Ocean. Great to wake up and go to sleep with the sound of the waves. Truly as the hotel says -... More

The rooms are huge, with amazing views of the beautiful beach. We saw dolphins in the mornings from our balcony. It was so relaxing to be on a quiet beach, listening to the waves from the comfortable bed. The location (on the sand) cannot be beat. The only thing it was missing was room service!

Great little oceanfront hotel property in Carlsbad. Walking distance to shopping, entertainment and restaurants. Customer service is the best I have encountered, anywhere. The rooms are very clear and updated. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a vacation or short gateway.

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!!!
