Our family of 10 (4 kids ages 3 to 7) had 3 rooms right on the beach over the busy Thanksgiving weekend. We so appreciated being able to swim in the heated pool and walk on the beach when the weather was cool and cloudy. The continental breakfast was more than I expected with fresh fruit, yogurt, and every kind...

Beach Terrace has a sweet place in my heart. Always love coming to enjoy the California weather with family and friends. This place has everything you need. Comfy bed, awesome view, perfect location, and a good cup of coffee in the morning. What else can you ask for.

While a little pricey, you couldn't ask for a better location. Restaurants within walking distance, waking to the ocean, spa, pool, what more could you need? Great for families, rooms are large and you have the pool which is slightly heated and beach to keep the kids occupied.

Such an exceptional hotel. We had an oceanfront room on the top floor. The room was large with comfortable furniture. The bed was super comfortable and the perfect natural sound machine of the ocean to lull us to sleep. We spent a lot of time on the balcony and enjoying the sunset. The city of Carlsbad is super cute with...

The prefect one day/night stay. We were both very impressed by the friendly staff, large clean room with an ocean view, walking distance to town, ready parking and super breakfast. We opened the balcony doors and let the ocean surf lull us to sleep. I won't mention the shower stall large enough for two. The topper is the easy walk...

Right on the beach, with a comfy little sofa on the patio, as well as a table and chairs. Beautiful, large, quiet room with 2 King beds. Great breakfast. Excellent, responsive staff!

On the sand. Beach and Ocean views. Also with a saltwater pool. Children welcome. Easy walking to restaurants and small shopping center. View rooms are higher priced but worth it. The hotel supplies chairs, towels and umbrellas for relaxation on the sand. Different pricing for week days and the season.

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
