Overall this is a moderate 2-3 star hotel, a little rough around the edges, but in a great location. The Beach Terrace Inn is truly right on the beach. Many of the hotels in this area have the words sea or beach in their names but are not actually on the beach. It is also within walking distance to Carlsbad Village. We were able to easily walk to most of the restaraunts in Carlsbad from the hotel. My husband and I were traveling with our 4 year old son and enjoyed being able to walk out of our room and onto the beach. The Pacific is still pretty cold in June so we appreciated the heated pool on a deck with an ocean view. I would also point out that the Inn sits on a public beach, but it was not overly crowded during our stay. Legoland is about 5-10 minutes away unless you hit traffic. My complaints would be the hotel is under construction (which resulted some noise and an inconvenient route to our room), the dead fish smell in the elevator, and the broken wireless internet connection, also due to the construction. Most of our stay was during the week, which I would recommend because the weekends bring crowds and loud teenagers. The walls are thin and we were grateful to be leaving Saturday morning.
