Travellers' Choice
A true beachfront hotel. Our family-owned, independent boutique has been a part of Carlsbad Village since the 1960s. Yet still to this day we remain the only beachfront hotel in Carlsbad. Our rooms average 600 square feet and feature balconies with panoramic ocean views while our privileged location offers direct access to the our own private beach. Our beach valets will even setup umbrellas, beach chairs, towels, and beach toys to make your experience extra special. 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. Legoland and fabulous shopping are five minutes away while the famous sights of San Diego are a quick 30 minute drive south.

Hotel's Favourite
I have stayed at Beach Terrace Inn quite a few times. This time {even during the Pandemic!} was just as fantastic and magical as the others. The staff are helpful as well as mindful to all safety measures in place. I have been grateful and forturnate to stay in the beach front rooms and have enjoyed the absolute beauty and majesty of waking up to the beautiful ocean and falling asleep to the lulling crash of waves. I LOVE being able to park my car and walk all over town without ever needing to get in the car the whole time! Restaurants with outdoor dining are fantastic as well! I cannot wait to come back!

Will not stay anywhere else in Carlsbad.We had 35 family members stay and all of us had the best time. Pool area was always clean. They brought out all our beach chairs umbrellas and towels all 5 days , was set up on the beach every day at 7am. Totally amazing time.

Beach Terrace Inn is the best and friendliest place to stay in Carlsbad! We found it by accident several years ago when we brought our entire clan for a family vacation and now my Queen and I return at least once a year. Do not miss this Carlsbad gem!

I loved Beach Terrace Inn before, but even through the Pandemic, you have managed to adapt and make the experience of staying in your hotel even better. I have to confess, I didn't think that was possible. This is by far my favorite place to stay on the beach!
