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

Very friendly staff. Always looking for a way to be of assistance. Fantastic location. Right smack on the beach! If you leave you windows open at night the sound of crashing waves will lull you into a deep sleep. Walking distance to downtown where many shops and restaurants await you. Large spacious room and generously sized bathroom. Parking is free.... More

You just can't beat the location!! Everyone was so kind and helpful, it was refreshing! The complimentary breakfast each morning was beautiful, yummy, and well-managed. We ate overlooking the beach and watched dolphins swimming. The resort had a great and varied amount of beach accessories to check out for free! They even offered to set up our area for us.... More

We booked this hotel because we wanted to be right on the beach and photos and review looked great. We also appreciated that breakfast, parking and Wi-Fi were included (and we later found out there was actually much more included - like beach chairs, towels, etc). We booked partial view room, but when arrived to the property we decided that... More

Great views, gorgeous rooms kept immaculately clean. Best of all are the staff from front desk to breakfast hosts to housekeeping. You couldn't find a more friendly or welcoming place. If... More
