I first came here 30 years ago with my five-year-old twins. Now, my grown daughters, my granddaughter, and I come back every year for the best five days of my year. The service is wonderful, and every staff memeber is unfailingly friendly. All one's needs are met with a smile. I can't recommend this lovely place highly enough.

We live locally, yet we often choose to stay at the Beach Terrace Inn because of the amenities their hotel offers. It's a great hotel, it has a great location (right on the beach), they have very courteous and accommodating staff and we really enjoy our time there.

We celebrated our anniversary and Easter at this charming boutique hotel. It was our first stay, but certainly not our last. We were greeted with a warm welcome. The rooms as described are large and airy and the beautiful view and sound of the ocean are captivating! It was the perfect getaway!

My family recently stayed at The Beach Terrace Inn and it was a wonderful surprise. It is located just a block off of highway 101- right on the beach. There is ample free parking. Also it is situated in Carlsbad village- so there are shops and restaurants walking distance from the inn. We enjoyed the hotel and location so much...

My children and I enjoyed the magnificent beach views from the pool. Our room didn't have a full view of the beach but it really didn't matter as the beach is one second away.

Great location. We loved staying so close to the ocean. You just walk a few feet and you are in the water. Sleeping with the sound of the waves nearby is luxurious. Room was spacious and pool/hot tub area were really nice. Availability of chairs, umbrella, and even sand toys and boogie boards at the hotel made it really fun....

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

“We love that the breakfast room is always available for our card games, etc. Only wish that the breakfast service would be "open" a little longer (11:30 am) so the relaxed visitors could not have to rush to get a bit of breakfast. All considered..Beach Terrace Inn is always our favorite place to visit 3x a year. Keep up the good work!”
