It's like visiting family when I go back to the Beach Terrace. I don't even know how many times I've been there. And when I leave I can't wait to plan my next vacation there. This time it wasn't to visit anyone, it was just a "me" vacation. I know once I get to the Inn, that I can walk... More

Friends of ours stayed here a few months ago and highly recommended that we give it a try. So glad they did! We had a very large, beautiful, clean balcony room overlooking the pool and the ocean. Although it rained most of the day, we enjoyed our view. Within walking distance of excellent restaurant's, stores and interesting shops.

Beautiful small hotel RIGHT on the beach! The rooms are very large and spacious with comfortable beds, decent continental breakfast. Easy walk to Carlsbad Village shops and restaurants. Pretty pricey but very nice.

Being land locked living in Las Vegas the ocean is an awesome sight my wife and I love. We have been going to Carlsbad California for several years and since discovering the Beach Terrace Inn we have stayed no place else. The location is absolutely the best bar none. In my past reviews I have criticized their wireless internet service... More

Unlike most San Diego County hotels, the Beach Terrace Inn is right on the sand, in a quiet neighborhood, with beaches that are not overcrowded. The oceanfront rooms are beautiful and have a full view of the ocean. There are restaurants, bars and shopping within walking distance. We stayed at the Beach Terrace Inn for an anniversary. Before arriving, I... More

Beach Terrace Inn is the favorite getaway location for my wife and I. We have no desire to spend our time anywhere else in all of Southern California. We look forward to going back again, as we have done, for years.

Perfect location, great view. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Very comfortable to just relax and enjoy the view. Staff is very accommodating and want to make sure the visitor experience is excellent. Spectacular views, great pool and beautiful beach. Close to restaurants and coffee shops, walking around town is fun. Everything about this place is wonderful. We've come back... More

Best hotel! Spacious clean rooms, very friendly staff, and you can't beat the view! If you are looking for a wonderful summer vacation on the beach, or maybe a relaxing off season peaceful stay, this is the hotel to stay at.

I almost hate to give a review of this awesome little hotel on the beach. I'm afraid too many people will come here and I might not get in again. The rooms are huge and very nice. If you get an Oceanside room you can leave your balcony door open all night and sleep to the waves. We've been here... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The only hotel right on the sand along the azure waters of the Carlsbad coast. The luxurious, totally redesigned Beach Terrace Inn is delightfully private and terraced on the sand along Carlsbad State Beach, boasting miles of beautiful beach front. Both wired and relaxed, the hotel allows you to surf the net or the waves, walk to dozens of restaurants and nightlife in Carlsbad Village, or lose yourself in flip flops, sand and the sight of dolphins playing in the ocean. Here you are free from cares and free from extra fees with breakfast, parking, WiFi and most services included in the room charge. Legoland and fabulous shopping are five minutes away while The Wild Animal Park, San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld and all of San Diego are 30 minutes away. ... more   less
