This quaint hotel was amazing. I ran on the beach in front of my room. I was greeted by Chaz with a warm smile. The room was perfect, view amazing and I am considering a long term stay. Frig, great TV, beautiful shower. The best part was falling asleep with the sounds of WAVES!!

Our oceanfront room was ideally situated, large and airy. The staff is very attentive and keeps busy maintaining this somewhat aging complex. The beach did not disappoint! Although it was stormy the long weekend we spent there, the dramatic swells of the ocean were beautiful to behold. When the sun appeared, the ocean was silvery. We would highly recommend it!

Dear Patrick C., We appreciate your stay at the Beach Terrace Inn! Your vivid description of a winter storm at the beach actually has us longing for rainy days. Our Ocean Front rooms are the perfect place to watch the waves in any weather. Hopefully we can host you in the future with our usual sunshine!

The location right on the beach can't be beat! Lovely, spacious ocean-front room was definitely worth the splurge and afforded stunning ocean and sunset views. Friendly and accommodating staff. Nice continental breakfast (with a view!). Within a short walk to downtown. Particularly appreciated no add-on charges for parking or Wi-Fi, which seems to be the trend at other properties.

Dear jeart19, Thank you for staying at our little inn on a big, sandy beach! We want our guests to feel confident the rate advertised is the rate they will pay with no surprises. The Beach Terrace Inn has never charged for parking, wi-fi, breakfast or beach rentals—and we never will! We know those charges can add up fast; and,...

This was our second stay at the Beach Terrace Inn. The rooms are very large, comfortable and most rooms have excellent views of the ocean. We left our balcony doors open at night so we could listen to the surf. The hotel property is right on the beach and there is easy access to the beach by the hotel pool....

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
