I stayed here with my 2 kiddos and husband! The staff was very nice. The room was very nice and spacious!! We have stayed in Carlsbad at various beach hotels and this by far was the best! We will be staying here again when we come back this fall (just my husband and I)!!!! I recommend this place for any travelers looking for an amazing place to stay! Also, it is very close to shopping and dinning so you don't have to worry about driving anywhere!!

Room Tip: Beach front rooms are definitely the way to go!!

We stayed for 3 nights in an ocean front room. Wonderful! There was some noise at night from people next door and outside, but we turned on our fan and it helped drown the noise. Other than that, the place was exceptional.

Perfect location... LUXURY rooms... Top level staff ready to make your dreams come true... This place is SOoooo relaxing! From the second we walked in the door of our oceanfront king room it was all about the ocean. Huge ,clean sliding glass doors bring the sand,surf, and sky seamlessly into your room. We could see and hear the surf from our bed, which was divinely comfortable, with a menu of pillows to choose from. We spent hours relaxing on our PRIVATE OCEANFRONT BALCONY. You cannot beat this location!! I searched high and low to find a hotel on the beach in the area, this is IT! The rooms are huge, lovely, peaceful. The enormous bathroom is a total WOW!!! ,with rainfall shower head, and environmentally friendly dispensers for shampoo,etc... The beach outside the door goes on for miles! We strolled the beach every day, collecting treasures. Oceanside pier is clearly visible a few miles down the beach. The staff went out of their way to make everything perfect for us. After some confusion about our booking, Solveig got us settled in the room of our dreams. Richard arrived with a big smile and strong arms to help us get set up, and Dorothy was like a dear friend greeting us for a delicious breakfast every morning! She even opened up a little early for those pre-7;00 coffee cravings! I appreciate that parking, wi-fi, and breakfast are all included in the price- so there is no surprise on your bill at check-out. I HOPE that we can return to the Beach terrace Inn many times in the future. It is the ultimate beach front hotel!!!

Room Tip: We looked at several rooms, and they are all sumptuous luxury. The real difference is the view. Be c...

Normally we stay up the street at a larger Time Share/Hotel just off Carlsbad Blvd, but there was no availability on the weekend we wanted to shoot down from Vegas. I researched some surrounding hotels and came across the Beach Terrace Inn. The pictures looked great so I figured we would give it a shot.

The Reception and Registration area was very well done, with beach views greeting you as you check in. The staff is friendly and helpful, and give you a quick break down of the property.

The room was exceptionally nice with tile entry, updated bathroom and shutters (very nice touch). WIFI for the room was hard to figure out, but eventually got connection. .

The breakfast every morning was great! Plenty of options for every taste and had multiple attendants refreshing the coffee stations and buffet line.

Pool attendants were helpful, refilling towels and offered assistance with complimentary chairs and umbrellas he would set up for you upon request.

The location was great, within walking distance to some great restaurants and shops, along with being literally on the beach.

This was a great little weekend retreat and will now only return to this property on our future visits to our favorite beach town in california!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 52 and would recommend asking to not be booked in this rooms (only because it is d...

When they say location is everything they are talking about the beach terrace inn. Nestled along the northern San Diego coast it is the perfect destination. With the most amazing view and excellent staff, I cannot say enough about how terrific it was.

What a great find......pulling in late at night and got a room, looking towards the ocean. Beautiful rooms, and an incredible bathroom! Excellent location for beach activities and close to walk into town to explore. I loved the staff in particular the woman (can't remember her name) that pulls together the breakfast, she is a lovely person. I would recommend this hotel and stay again if in the area.

Room Tip: choose a beach front room if you can.....

We visited this hotel for Easter Weekend. Upon arrival, the staff was excellent! They were informative, helpful in advising us on places to eat there in Carlsbad.

The room: WOW, we stayed in the King Suite overlooking the ocean. AWESOME ROOM! The views are amazing! The bathroom and amenities were excellent as well! There is NO DOUBT we will be coming back this year and staying at this wonderful place! To top it all off, we saw a whale on Easter, while hanging out on the beach. You'd be crazy to stay anywhere else - THIS PLACE IS THE BEST!

Room Tip: If can, get the ocean view room. You wont regret it. Be sure to request a microwave if youre going t...
