“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Fantastic experience from the moment we arrived to the point we left. We stayed for four nights and we were ocean front on the third floor so probably could not get any better as a room. The room was great a fantastic size with everything you need. The balcony was also a good size with a couple of chairs a table and small 'sofa'. The breakfast was lovely in a room overlooking the ocean. I understand the building was refurbished three years ago and it does have a very cool relaxed feel to it. But also there is no feeling of being ripped off - the parking is free, the breakfast is substantial, free bottles of water in the room etc - only small things but having come from a hotel in Indian Wells where the oppsoite was the case to me it makes a massive difference. I can never remember the cost of the room but always remember cost of the add ons....! Couple of tips definitely get either a pool or ocean view room - you will save money on meals out because you will want to sit on the balcony! The other tip was for the hotel - to get baby high chairs for the breakfast room.

Room Tip: Ocean or pool view rooms.

This hotel is amazing! We stayed in a ocean front double king room and the rooms are huge! The view is amazing. You really can't get any closer to the beach. Our room was on the 1st floor, but since the street and front desk is technically on the 3rd floor, you will have many steps to climb to get to your car or up to the breakfast room. The pool area was so nice overlooking the ocean with the cushioned double person patio chairs. It's so relaxing. Most rooms have patios with comfy cushioned chairs as well. The beds are so comfortable. They even have a pillow bar where you can choose what type of pillow you want. Every employee that we encountered from the front desk to the employees serving breakfast go out of their way to make sure you are taken care of. It's within walking distance (a block or two) from many restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream places so you never have to drive to get food while you are here. This place is worth every penny. You will not be dissappointed.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 3rd floor if you do not want to climb stairs. We did not see any elevators on the...

This hotel is an oasis for the weary traveler (or vacationer!), comfortable beds, all of the amenities, fantastic friendly service, short walk to shopping and restaurants, and ON THE BEACH! Leave your windows open at night to hear the surf for a natural sleep machine
I have been coming here for over a decade, it just keeps getting better.

From the moment of check in to every moment of our stay, this place has scored top honors with both my kids and husband; I of course felt the same. The place is totally remodeled and located on the perfect spot for beach goers, both with of without kids. If you're hungry there's also restaurants nearby (walking distance). Definitely looking to return real soon!

We spent three nights in a double king room. The room was large by normal standards. Our balcony was right on the sand, about twenty yards from the water at high tide. Our room was very nice. The bathroom was very spacious and clean as well. The sounds of the ocean were great. We ate the continental breakfast offered by the hotel. It was good, and the view of the ocean was terrific. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I wish we had more time to stay. The Beach Terrrace Inn was a bit pricey, but it was peak season. There aren't many hotels in San Diego county that are right on the sand, so I suppose the price is going to reflect that.

My wife and I discovered this inn three years ago and have been back several times. We live in Utah and when we talk about getting away the first place to come up is Carlsbad, CA and the Beach Terrace Inn.

The staff is friendly and always helpful. The continental breakfast is always well done with a good selection of food. The breakfast area overlooks the beach and the view of the ocean is WOW!! The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, and easily one of the most relaxing hotels I have stayed at. Downtown Carlsbad is within walking distance so the car can be parked for the weekend and you can enjoy the area as you walk to some pretty amazing resturants. Ask at the front desk for a list of them.

We have come here on a family vacation and as a couple twice. Beach Terrace in has converted me from a camping in the mountains kind of guy to let's go to the beach. We definately will be back many times.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not directly under the dining area. With the tile floors above you it can be very noi...

She was so friendly, polite, very prompt and highly professional. She waited on our tables and removed the dirty dishes as soon as we were done. She apologized for the stale bagels that were served and changed them with fresh ones immediately. The hotel was amazing, the view, the ambience, the staff, and cleanliness was off the charts. Highly recommed this hotel and will come back again. The bathrooms are gigantic, like another master bedroom by itself. You can play golf in them. Very clean and highly modernized!!

Room Tip: Take the one with the partial ocean view rooms, if you are on a tight budget like we were, you can g...
