Certificate of Excellence
As Carlsbad's ONLY hotel on the sand, the luxurious and delightfully private Beach Terrace Inn sits along the sandy coastline of Carlsbad State Beach. Both wired and relaxed, the hotel allows you to surf the net or the waves, walk to 70+ restaurants and entertainment venues within the charming 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 famous sights of San Diego are a quick 30 minute drive south.

As a past guest I knew that I would receive excellent service and comfortable accommodation right on the beach. No traffic noise. Just the sound of waves crashing on the sand and unbelievable nightly sunsets. A great place to unwind and relax.
