As Carlsbad's ONLY hotel on the sand, the luxurious and delightfully private Beach Terrace Inn sits along the sandy coastline of Carlsbad State Beach. Both wired and relaxed, the hotel allows you to surf the net or the waves, walk to 70+ restaurants and entertainment venues within the charming Carlsbad Village, or lose yourself in flip flops, sand and the sight of dolphins playing in the ocean. Legoland and fabulous shopping are five minutes away while the famous sights of San Diego are a quick 30 minute drive south.

5 stars. Just ask and they will take care of you. Great rooms with On the beach. Great breakfast, not like the chain places. Heated pool. Walk to 25 restaurants within 3 blocks, never use your car. Safe and secure area.

Hotel's Favorite
I have stayed at Beach Terrace Inn quite a few times. This time {even during the Pandemic!} was just as fantastic and magical as the others. The staff are helpful as well as mindful to all safety measures in place. I have been grateful and forturnate to stay in the beach front rooms and have enjoyed the absolute beauty and majesty of waking up to the beautiful ocean and falling asleep to the lulling crash of waves. I LOVE being able to park my car and walk all over town without ever needing to get in the car the whole time! Restaurants with outdoor dining are fantastic as well! I cannot wait to come back!

We stayed in the poolside room. It was terrific for the kids. Even in late November, the pool was maintained at a warm enough temp to swim in comfortably. The staff observed social-distancing and mask-wearing. All the pandemic protocols made us feel safe and secure while the staff went the extra mile to show hospitality. The easy beach access made this a special place to stay. Look forward to returning in the coming year.

Huge shoutout to every BTI staff member, the staff here are all amazing and hospitable! The rooms are spacious and clean, ideal location, you are on the beach and also have access to eateries within walking distance. I work in the healthcare industry and truly appreciate all the safety measures BTI has taken to mitigate risk and promote a safe and clean environment (contactless breakfast to your room, enforce mask and social distancing by staff modeling it themselves and also posting friendly reminder signs in the common areas, limiting # of people to check-in, hand sanitation in lobby). I personally love the fact they’re a small family-owned hotel, you guys, support BTI this fall and winter. You honestly won’t regret it. You can even work from there if you can’t take several days off (WiFi access). Definitely recommend this stay!
