“Great value -- spectacular view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We wanted a room close to the ocean, and this hotel fit the bill perfectly. We had one of the King Oceanfront Rooms, and it just couldn't have been nicer. Great room, spectacular bathroom, and unbelievable view. The pool, the breakfast, the front desk, all first rate. We got the special rate for buy two nights, get the third night free, and it was a geeat value!

The Beach Terrace Inn was a fantastic find right on the water. Set back from noise, except the sound of waves, it offers clean, lovely, large rooms, the beach at your fingertips and great service. We stayed accidentally and have returned twice. Our room was upgraded due to the time of year and not being full, and when we had a credit card dispute it was taken care of immediately. I highly recommend this haven whether on business or for relaxation.

Room Tip: Room 29 is stellar.

This was our 3rd visit and I cannot wait to go back again. If you are looking for a comfortable peaceful place to on the beach near San Diego, this is the place! The rooms are clean, large the bed is soo comfortable and the views are amazing. The staff is courteous and the complimentary breakfast is superb. We will definitely be back as soon as possible.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean front - the views are amazing.

Whether you're planning a trip to Legoland or a romantic getaway at the seashore, the Beach Terrace Inn is unquestionably the place to stay. Prices are decent, Staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is ideal. The Beach Terrace Inn is one of the exceptionally few hotels in Southern Caliornia that are actually on the sand. The hotel completed major renovations in 2009 so rooms and facilities are clean and well appointed. Other amenities include free WiFi, free parking and complimentary continental breakfast--served in beautifully decorated guest lounge with a stunning view.
Tips:
Other than the complimentary breakfast, food is not available on the premises. There are some restaurants within walking distance, but I recommend stocking up at the Albertsons supermarket on Carlsbad Village Drive (next to the 5 Freeway).
And, reserve your room well in advance: Arguably one of the top places to stay in Carlsbad, this Hotel tends to fill up quickly.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the lower rooms on the Sand. Preferably further away from the pool area which can...

The rooms are quite spacious and well decorated. Breakfast is served from 7 to 11 am and everything was great. When we told the desk we needed different pillows, they had them in our room before we got back from walking on the beach. The new pillows were perfect. The walk-in shower was great and I would stay again, anytime.

Room Tip: They do not have a restaurant on site but there are so many nice ones to choose from within walking...

I stayed for 3 nights & had no complaints. I love the location & both the room and bathroom were huge. There is a continental breakfast served every morning between 7-11 am. The ocean view is spectacular!

Recently stayed at Beach Terrace Inn for five nights and very happy with our choice. Location was great. The ocean was steps away from the property. We could walk to shopping, and dinning in Carlsbad Village. Room was great size and clean with ocean and pool views. One of the biggest bathrooms I've seen in many travels. Watching the sunset from our balcony was fantastic and hearing the waves at night made for very restfull sleeping. Breakfast was great. Your choice to eat inside or outside. Staff was very friendly and made some recomendations for dinning. Only had one complaint the whole stay. There were people smoking by the pool one day and smoke was drifting into our room. As a non-smoking property I went to front desk to inform staff of this situation. Gentleman behind the desk tells me "I'm all over it". After a half hour, nothing got done. For the price of rooms you think that problem would have been taken care of right away. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for room 56.
