I was greeted by a lovely staff member that made me feel welcomed as soon as I walked through the lobby door. It was such a lovely lobby too! Very welcoming. I stayed in one of the Ocean View rooms for a week, and it was fantastic! It was nice and clean and very roomy. Not to mention the ocean...

Great little inn.Second time I've been there. Only thing missing is a hot breakfast such as eggs, bacon, waffles. Spend the extra money for a room with a full front beach view--well worth the extra money.

I decided to take my family on a weekend getaway, and this was the perfect place. We had an amazing time, and we can't wait to visit Beach Terrace Inn again! I must say, we were definitely in paradise.

Very comfortable King size ocean front room. Lulled to sleep by the rolling Pacific breakers. Only downside was that we had to ask at least 5 times to have our room made up and it was 5 oo pm before it was done.

We went to celebrate my mother's 95th birthday. Her favorite place is the beach, so we booked into a handicap accessible room. It was HUGE and very comfortable, and I'm picky about beds. We set her up on the balcony and she could see her grandkids and great grandchild in the pool and on the beach from the balcony. Great...

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...

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
