We had the pleasure of spending 3 days at the Beach Terrace Inn last week. What a find! Our friends had stayed there many years ago and thought we might like staying directly on the beach. We could not have been more pleasantly surprised. We had a large room in the Pool Terrace building which has an elevator. We’d love... More

Looking to take a breather from the hustle and bustle? This is the place. It's small, very nice and the ocean provides a relaxing backdrop. A little pricey but worth the splurge. There's no room service but nice restaurants nearby that deliver.

We've been coming to Carlsbad for vacations for over 20 years, both with our kids and also for quick getaways for just the two of us. This hotel is the best! Great location for walking to shopping and restaurants. Huge, clean, beautiful rooms right on the beach. They provide everything you need for the beach...umbrellas, towels, chairs, toys, boogie boards,... More

My wife and I found this hotel quite by accident. Maybe it would be better to say, we found it as we were merely driving through Carlsbad on our 50th wedding anniversary trip, and driving on the side-streets. We greatly enjoyed the hotel, the staff, and especially the assistant manager. Ryan made us feel quite at home. In fact, he... More

So check in time is 4pm. Check out time is 11 am. Any later checkout then 1 am (you have to sign for this) will cost you (as I recall) $79 dollars. Their day is 19 hours and I paid over $500 (tax etc) per night. So if want to enjoy their gorgeous beach or pool between the prime hours... More

We stayed 3 nights in an oceanfront room. In my opinion the hotel is bit overpriced compared to other beachfront locations I've stayed around the country, but we wanted to stay right on the beach and be able to hear the waves and it was one of the few places i found that gave us that option. The beach is... More

Excellent staff and breath taking view. Ryan and Thomas have got to be the best hosts of any hotel we've stayed in. The breakfast room is fantastic with everything you would want other than cooked food, and an ocean view inside and out on the patio. This was our third stay and we'll be back for sure.

Wonderful experience in our beach front room. Helpful, pleasant staff. Liked the free breakfast and parking and closeness so we could walk to many restaurants and shops. Great location for walking or jogging. We will definitely visit again.

Awesome place but too expensive in my opinion. $540.00 per night for the room and I couldn't get a roll away bed at no charge. $40.00 dollars per night for a roll away is just too much. I know beach front hotels are pricy but give us a little break on the little things.

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
