Came here based upon a recommendation and so happy we did. Polite and helpful staff, wonderful accommodations, and the best views ever for our family. Fun for both the young kids and the teenagers. Will be returning!

We have always found our stay at Beach Terrace Inn to be a relaxing, reinvigorating experience. We love lounging on the beach at our leisure, playing in the waves, and all that being just steps away from our room. When we're not on the beach, we love sitting in our room with the patio door open, just watching and listening... More

Just a little cold.They set up their own chairs and towels on the beach for you, just ask. The continental breakfast could be better. They have mostly carbs pastries, muffins etc.and fruit, yogurt, cereals. Coffee, juices.some protein foods would have... More

Beachfront room was wonderful. Nothing beats hearing the waves crash on the beach while you're going to sleep. Room was clean and large. We loved watching the sunset from our balcony everyday. The kids loved the pool which was easily accessible and overlooked the ocean. Loved it!

We stayed for the weekend for my Husband's 50th birthday, I had planned this as a surprise for him for months. They left chocolates on the bed that said "Happy 50th Birthday" on them with a shell, I had upgraded our room to their best room & I am so glad I did! My husband said it was the best... 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
