Beach Terrace Inn was the perfect place to decompress. The room & pool facilities were great. The view & sound of the crashing waves was just what we needed. Their staff was super nice & helpful. We would definitely come back.

Me and mom stayed here 2 years ago for a few days and decided to come back for a whole week. This is the perfect location for some mother-daughter-time because it is just so quaint and peaceful and the only hotel along the coast that is directly on the beach without a noisy road inbetween the hotel and the beach....

We had the most relaxing time at this inn and felt the staff was incredibly welcoming and helpful! The grounds and room were spotless and well kept! The breakfast room has a beautiful ocean view and the highlight was when another guest pointed out dolphins close to the shore! Our extra large room with a couch had an unobstructed view...

We had a great mini getaway here. My husband and two kids (2 and 4 years old) stayed in room 12 and it's literally on the beach. We could step on the balcony and jump into the sand. The room was spacious, nicely decorated, and clean. We went from the beach to the pool. Thomas the attendant was very nice...

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
