I recently retired and decided to reward myself with a trip to the beach. I booked the oceanside king room, and let me tell you....it's as close to perfect as you can get! This property has CUSTOMER SERVICE figured out! The front desk was helpful, kind and genuinely interested in my celebration. The room was beautiful and large. The bathroom...

Just spent a long weekend at the Beach Terrace Inn. The room was clean and spacious. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful! The location couldn't be better and Carlsbad is such a nice and relaxing place. We'll be back!

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...

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...

We needed a space to accommodate a group of about 35 family and friends after a memorial service. We found a gem of a place at the Beach Terrace Inn. Not only is the facility beautifully kept with a spectacular view, Constance, the manager, couldn't have been more hospitable. She was empathetic of our loss and helped us plan the...

I learned of Beach Terrace Inn in Carlsbad, California online. I had a couple of questions regarding room views and contacted the inn directly. A female answered the phone within the first rings. She was delightful and well spoken. She patiently and professionally answered my questions in a thorough manner. She thanked me for calling. The actual check-in process was...

Beach Terrace was surprisingly pleasant place to stay. My room was large and had everything I needed. The view overlooking the pool and the ocean was fantastic. I would stay here again without hesitation.

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
