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...

The room was clean and spacious. The view was spectacular. We only stayed one night and instantly regretted it. Wish we had spent our whole vacation right here. Carlsbad is a great little town. People were very friendly. Food was great.

Spent a few nights and it was great! Check in was fast, easy and courteous. The front staff were helpful in recommending restaurants, etc. The rooms are huge with perfect ocean views. Big bathrooms. Clean. Medium comfort beds, and pillows. I would like to point out that we did not hear any neighbours! So nice and quiet rooms. They offer...

Had a three-day staycation here. Could not be happier with the selection of hotel. Per the title of this review, we were overjoyed seeing our room overlook the beach with nothing in between. Located right on the beach and off of the beaten trail in the Carlsbad village, it was as quiet as could be. The room was huge, with...

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

“Love the large king size suites right on the sand. I would recommend the second or third floor, for privacy.”

“If you can afford it, it's wonderful to be on the beach with the view and the sound of the waves. There are no elevators to these rooms but they have staff to help carry your luggage. The higher levels have the fewest steps.”
