A great place to spend a few days - right on the beach! Very comfortable spacious room, large bathroom, terrace overlooking the beach (other rooms may look over the pool and beach). And friendly, competent staff. Parking just across the street, some under cover. Excellent continental breakfast in Guest Lounge, also with view of pool and ocean. Highly recommended and...

My kids and I have been coming to this hotel since before it was renovated and they still had one bedroom, a kitchen and a fireplace. One summer they did a massive renovation and upgraded the property nicely and they continue to add little things here and there. Our latest trip was in October 2016. We used to go at...

The inn is right on the beach with convenient parking right across the street. The rooms were huge and comfortable. The included breakfasts were delicious and the views spectacular. Strongly recommend this place.

We needed a space to accommodate a group of about 35 family and friends after a memorial service. We found a gem of a place at the Beach Terrace Inn. Not only is the facility beautifully kept with a spectacular view, Constance, the manager, couldn't have been more hospitable. She was empathetic of our loss and helped us plan the...

I learned of Beach Terrace Inn in Carlsbad, California online. I had a couple of questions regarding room views and contacted the inn directly. A female answered the phone within the first rings. She was delightful and well spoken. She patiently and professionally answered my questions in a thorough manner. She thanked me for calling. The actual check-in process was...

Beach Terrace was surprisingly pleasant place to stay. My room was large and had everything I needed. The view overlooking the pool and the ocean was fantastic. I would stay here again without hesitation.

Room 28 had a marvelous full ocean view and was a spacious and comfortable room. We enjoyed beautiful walks on the beach, swimming in the pool and relaxing in the hot tub! We even utilized in room massage services and had a tandem "couples" massage on our first night! The morning continental breakfast was an added perk and the special...

This quaint hotel was amazing. I ran on the beach in front of my room. I was greeted by Chaz with a warm smile. The room was perfect, view amazing and I am considering a long term stay. Frig, great TV, beautiful shower. The best part was falling asleep with the sounds of WAVES!!

Our oceanfront room was ideally situated, large and airy. The staff is very attentive and keeps busy maintaining this somewhat aging complex. The beach did not disappoint! Although it was stormy the long weekend we spent there, the dramatic swells of the ocean were beautiful to behold. When the sun appeared, the ocean was silvery. We would highly recommend it!

Dear Patrick C., We appreciate your stay at the Beach Terrace Inn! Your vivid description of a winter storm at the beach actually has us longing for rainy days. Our Ocean Front rooms are the perfect place to watch the waves in any weather. Hopefully we can host you in the future with our usual sunshine!

The location right on the beach can't be beat! Lovely, spacious ocean-front room was definitely worth the splurge and afforded stunning ocean and sunset views. Friendly and accommodating staff. Nice continental breakfast (with a view!). Within a short walk to downtown. Particularly appreciated no add-on charges for parking or Wi-Fi, which seems to be the trend at other properties.

Dear jeart19, Thank you for staying at our little inn on a big, sandy beach! We want our guests to feel confident the rate advertised is the rate they will pay with no surprises. The Beach Terrace Inn has never charged for parking, wi-fi, breakfast or beach rentals—and we never will! We know those charges can add up fast; and,...

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
