I spent 2 nights on a business trip and liked the relaxed and clean place. Good breakfast, very freindly service and large rooms. Try to catch a room with beach view. Great beachside. I recommend it also during business trips

If you're looking for a beach front experience, The Beach Terrace Inn is 'dolphinatly' the right spot! My mother and I wanted a little vacation from our busy, busy schedules and The Beach Terrace Inn exceeded every expectation. From the spectacular views to the friendly and attentive staff, our weekend getaway was beyond amazing. We stayed in an ocean view room (52) over looking the pool and the Carlsbad State Beach. Waking up and falling asleep to the crashing of the waves was pure tranquility.

The continental breakfast was perfect! The four hour time frame, 7am-11am, allowed my mother and I to sleep in and still be able grab breakfast. It may not be your breakfast feast full of eggs, bacons and sausages, but there is an assortment of delicious pastries, bagels, breads, cereal and fruit. The staff was also extremely prompt in refilling the coffees and baked goods whenever anything was low.

The views may have been exceptional and the room may have been devine, but the staff was incredible. Right from the moment you step inside the lobby, you're greeted with warm welcomes and great smiles. Kent was extremely helpful and accommodating in coordinating our stay. My mother needed a few extra blankets for the cold nights ahead, so we called the front desk for some assistance. Ryan, the Front Desk, was polite and exceedingly helpful and even offered if we would want an extra personal heater. Within 1 minute of the phone request, Andrew, the Pool Attendant, was at our door with 2 blankets and a portable heater. The staff goes above and beyond to make your visit a rememberable one.

If you're looking a small dose of paradise, you can find it at The Beach Terrace Inn.

We spent the last days of 2012 in this wonderful hotel directly on the beach! Management so helpful and nice,Thank you MIke for all your assistance!! the hotel is so beautiful, pool at beach a dream! it is a real jewel! We spent 2 weeks in different locations in California, very nice places and beaches but there is only one where we are definitely sure to go back as soon as possible. The city center of Carlsbad is just few blocks away, easy to walk there and so nice and welcoming. We went to Dana Point from there and down to San Diego, we went to the nice Shopping Mall and really everything is so nearby. This is how we Austrians imagine a hotel in California.. A dream came true!!

Room Tip: take a beach view!!

I stayed here from 12-30-2012 to 1-3-2013. This was my first visit to California and wanted to stay right on the beach...was not dissappointed. Great location! The rooms here are very spacious, very clean and the staff more than accommodating...I didn't have my room serviced each day and by the 2nd day they placed a large basket with extra towels and toiletries..That was a first from any hotel I've ever stayed in...I will definitely stay here again and would HIGHLY recommend choosing Beach Terrace Inn.

If you can, stay at this wonderful, peaceful, paradise on the coast. We had a queen ocean view on level 3 around pool area (room 60). The view, the sound of the ocean and the perfect setting made for the most relaxing and wonderful stay. The complimentary breakfast in the guest room was fantastic - sitting outside on the rocking chairs enjoying the sound of the ocean, the sun, watching the dolphins enjoy the force of the great ocean whilst sipping on nice coffee while enjoying breakfast was the best way to start the day. Beds were the best I had slept on and even our 8 year old son said when his head hit the pillow he just fell asleep. Bathroom facilities were good and roomy with a private loo inside the bathroom. The view was unbelievable and the heated pool was nice, the day beds around the pool deck also a wonderful touch. Check in and Check out was very smooth with friendly staff. We were lucky that on check in (we had traveled from Australia into LAX arriving at 7.05am and then got car and head straight down the coast arriving around 11.00) a room was available so we were able to get into our room straight away. A walk along the beach was so relaxing. A fantastic beach front hotel that if you can pay for a ocean view/front room it is well worth the extra. Our only regret - we didn't stay here longer . . . . . .perhaps we could retire here . . . . . . nice dream.

Room Tip: Ocean View and Ocean Front are the best bet. we had room 60 overlooked pool (not on pool level) and the ocean. You could hear the waves from the room - just divine
