If the purpose with your stay is to visit Rome you should be aware that the hotel location is far from optimal. Without rental car you have to go by buss or train, and whatever you choose it takes 1 hour+ to reach Rome.
The hotel it self is of pretty good standard, Nothing special but a typical 3-4 star hotel. Nice restaurant, pool within the hotel premises and a nice and loooong sand beach no more than 100 meters from the hotel reception.
Ideally for a family summer holiday if the weather is nice so you can enjoy the beach. Except for the beach there is not so much nearby to brag about however.
Terracina as such is more or less divided in two city parts - old town and tourist hotel town.
The old town is like a traditional coastline town mixed of tradition and tourist attractions. Worth a visit!
The other part, where the hotel is situated, is however somewhat of a disappointment. Hotels and beach and that's it. The neighborhood at the backside of the hotel is shady and nothing that I can recommend.
The Terracina train station is situated in the old town and it takes approx 40 minutes reaching it if preferred walking. The train departures two times per day and you better be awake early since you need to catch the same train as the persons traveling to work in the morning. The train trip it self takes about 55 minutes.
All in all I could consider giving a 4 star rating depending of the travel purpose. But being a bit objective taking the location into consideration I would say a 3+ is more accurate.
Free Wifi and room size is a plus. The professionalism of the staff is mixed, some service minded and some not. The cleaning of the room was OK. Some missed spots but overall decant.
Family and summer time - recommended
Back packer, or off season - not recommended
