Been there several times before and as always its a very pleasant and comfortable stay. Room was under the "office" and I could hear every footstep of the office staff. Some lights were out and staff fixed right away. Usually would give it a 5 star rating but the noise above and shower lights took away the perfect rating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I randomly picked this hotel because of it's beach front location. I read reviews and looked at a few pix, then crossed my fingers. The hotel was fabulous. Awesome location within walking distance to dozens of restaurants and shops. It's right on the beach with a heated pool and spa. The room was huge, complete with a wet bar and refrigerator. The staff […] was great. I couldn't have asked for a better hotel for the price. I HIGHLY recommend it and will return! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel on the beach"
We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel has easy access to the beach and only 5 minutes away from Legoland.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and view"
The service and renovated room were outstanding. We paid a bit extra for the beach view and it was worth it. Room was oversized with lots of pillows. Balcony was great for morning coffee with the sounds of the ocean. Location in Carlsbad is very convenient to Legoland. Be aware that there are great showers, but this comes at the expense of the tub. […] Hot tub and heated pool were great for the kids. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Everything great except the bed"
Very spacious and clean with a perfect location. The bed looked fairly new, but was not flat. It had 2 deep groves on each side and a mound in the middle. Fine for a discount motel, but this place is too nice, so we notified the staff about it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I brought my 12 and 16 year old daughters for a Christmas get-a-way from cold Iowa winter and couldn't have been more pleased with every aspect of our stay . Hotel is located an easy approx 30 min from San Diego airport , and the beachfront location was breathtaking. The staff was courteous and went out of their way to not only meet but anticipate your […] needs, including a library of books to borrow . The rooms and entire facility was spit-spot clean, and beds very comfy. Any needs ie restaurants, grocery store , shopping and Starbucks are within walking distance in the clean town of Carlsbad . Note: recommend ease of negotiating stairs for anyone fortunate enough to visit this beautiful oasis. I will be back ! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautifully close to the beach, nice continental breakfast, even better was that staff was very accommodating when expedia got our reservation dates wrong.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is right on the beach. We absolutely loved the location and the room. The ONLY drawback was that you could hear people in the rooms next door and above you but nothing that ruined our stay. We are looking forward to going back again!!Genuine Expedia guest review
This was our first Thanksgiving away from family. We didn't know how much we would enjoy ourselves. The Beach Terrace was the perfect place to be. We had an oceanfront king room. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. We slept every night with the patio door open listening to the ocean. Every morning had the continental breakfast which was […] very fresh and had alot of options. The staff was very friendly and made sure all our needs were met. We stayed 3 nights and wish we could of stayed longer. We will go back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice family friendly hotel!"
I loved this hotel! It is right on the beach and we were traveling with a 3 year old and 6 months baby so perfecto! Even better they have beach chairs, umbrellas, toys and boards for loan so life got easy to get everyone on the beach. There are stairs and no elevators but we left the stroller in the reception all the time and it was no hassle. We did […] upgrade to a sea front room and it was definitely worth it. The room was roomy and clean. We can't wait to go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a return visit - that should say it all. We enjoyed the great location, direct access to the beach and being able to walk to the town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Completely disappointed. Did not get placed in the type of room we booked on Hotels.com. When we tried to address the issue with front desk staff they were not helpful at all, and simply said they were now completely full and the fault was the result of an incorrect booking by Hotels.com/Expedia. I don't really care who screwed up, but I certainly would […] have like for it to have been fixed, especially since this was supposed to have been a special anniversary vacation for my wife. Bottom line is that I paid a premium price for a substandard room that I had not requested, and no one at the hotel was willing to fix the error. It was a real joy spending 2 nights above the busy pool area and having a wedding and then a sweet 16 party right next to our room. I won't even go into all the late night cigarette smoke rising from the jacuzzi area below our room, or the fact that the sliding balcony door wouldn't even lock. Thanks for a very disappointing wedding anniversary!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Seven days of Heaven"
The proximity of our room to the beach made our stay most enjoyable. The staff was very friendly and pleasant to visit with, they took time to talk to us. The breakfast area was beautiful and there many delicious foods to choose from. The location to the main streets of Carlsbad made travel easy. Traveling to San Diego was a breeze once you got on […] I-5. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Incredible beachfront location"
Great location on the beach and within walking distance of great restaurants and shopping. Internet and parking are free, even better, no "resort" fee.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I had not been away for a long time. We loved the hotel and being able to see and hear the ocean from our room. It was lovely. The room was very spacious and clean. The bathroom was a pleasant surprise! It was almost as big as the room. The beach was clean and not crowded perfect for late night walks. It was a relaxing and enjoyable experience. […] I would recommend it to all my family and friends. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
They have a free Continental breakfast, and it's not the cheap kind. They provide "quality" items served in a lounge area overlooking the ocean. They also provided free; beach chairs, sun umbrellas, boogie boards, beach towels. Good bed and pillows.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice little hotel on the sand with great views."
A bit far out, but this was my intention. Loved the place and location. Can walk to the village for dinner, great restaurants. Would stay here again without hesitation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel on the beach"
Great location and room was fantastic. We had a really good view overlooking the ocean. Only com was the absence of a bar and restaurant. Staff was kind and ready to helpGenuine Expedia guest review
My stay was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great room directly over sand"
I went for a birthday weekend. It was absolutely perfect! The room was large enough for our family of 4. The bathroom was also large and well laid out. The best part was the balcony right over the sand and beautiful view. The pool area was also on the ocean, aswas the breakfast. Expensive but worth it! Highly recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Love the Beach!"
My friend and I had a very nice stay there. The view was great and the service was nice. Their breakfast was good and the staff was very nice. I just didn't care for the noisy air conditioner at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel and its location was awsome.The staff was great.We will definitely stay at The Beach Terrace Inn again.Right on the beach,loved it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My friend and I spent 4 nights at the Beach Terrace Inn. We were pleasantly surprised when the front desk honored an upgrade coupon I had printed from the Internet. We had a large room with a perfect full ocean view. The staff was especially friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be returning to the quaint city of Carlsbad.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel right on the beach."
We loved the facilities, but unfortunately the staff is terrible. They don't clean your room if you take the "don't disturb" sign off your door after 10:00 AM, although they to you housecleaning works till 5:00 PM. They front desk staff misinformed us about their policy on late check outs. One guy told us it was no problem, there's a fee for that. […] But the woman in the morning had a different a different opinion and told us (in a very hostile way) this was not possible. This really created a mess in our plans and we had to rush leaving the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Get-away with the Grandkids"
Loved the beach and pool. Would have preferred a ocean view but still had a great time. Will be back!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Based on Hotels.com reviews, we stayed at the Beach Terrace Inn and loved it! It's walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants in Carlsbad, it's right on the beach, has a pool (my main criteria traveling with 2 kids) and looks like it's recently undergone a big renovation. The hotel service was great. I'd highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic Hotel in Carlsbad."
This was our second year visiting. The hotel is amazing. It has its own access to the beach, which is only about 10 feet away. It also has a pool and spa. The rooms are excellent and the accommodations are nothing short of luxury. They have excellent mattresses, sheets and pillows. The hotel itself lends out beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas and […] beach toys on a daily basis so you don't need to pack those for your trip. They have someone on call all the time to get those items and even set them up for you on the beach if needed(we didn't, but saw them help a couple mom's with a gaggle of kids). It's kid friendly but also very romantic(after the kids go to bed or if you have none). The free breakfast every morning is also something we looked forward too. Great coffee, fresh danishes and muffins, toast, oatmeal, fresh fruit and yogurt are some of the things they supply every morning in a nice breakfast area overlooking the ocean. It's also walking distance to many of Carlsbad's fine eateries. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Two nice nights at the beach"
We enjoyed staying at the Beach Terrace Inn for two nights.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was one of the very best vacations we have had. It was a beautiful hotel right on the beach. Crashing waves 24/7. Great room, King bed ocean front room was like a small apartment. Luxury and quality. Fantastic staff. Can't wait until our next trip!!Genuine Expedia guest review
What a wonderful hotel. Excellent staff and just steps from the ocean. We could not have picked a better location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a very nice stay and our accommodations were very nice, clean and well maintained. Continental breakfast was very nice in the breakfast room and the staff was very gracious in assisting with whatever was needed. The front desk staff was helpful and informative.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel with pool over looking the beach"
The hotel was perfect for the location. Loved the pool over looking the beach. Very thing was clean. The only issues were 1) The bathroom door would not stay closed. 2) One of the dresser drawers would not stay closed. 3) I was disappointed in the lack of breakfast foods.. However, I would go back again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to the town"
Decided on a quick getaway for a week. The hotel was very convenient to the beach (only hotel will direct access to the beach) and everything in town was within walking distance. The only negative was San Diego sights were accessible only by driving 30 miles. But we loved the overall experience. We'll certainly do this again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Weekend Getaway"
What a wonderful weekend get away. The stress I carried into the hotel melted away instantly. The Hotel Staff are friendly, the room was spacious, the bed was comfy and the sound of the ocean lulled me to sleep each night. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the ocean was wonderful way to start each day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time! The rooms and bathrooms were spacious. My daughter and her friend loved tumbling in the bedroom. We did not have a great view in that our balcony overlooked a roof, but we did not spend a lot of time on the balcony. The beach access was very nice and so was the pool. We would definitely return to this property in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great beach resort!!"
Was a very enjoyable stay. Could not ask for more!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great romantic getaway"
We stayed in an Ocean Front King room - beautiful view, right on the beach with a great balcony. We were able to leave the door open at night and listen to the surf. Great continental breakfast with special treat on Sunday. Staff was wonderful. Walking distance to great restaurants and shopping. Only negative is that rooms could use a little more insulation […] - we could hear voices in room next door. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful beach getaway"
Our family stayed in an oceanfront room near the pool. Had an amazing view of ocean and right on the beach. Clean, updated room with a beautiful spa bathroom.

Continental breakfast was nice and convenient, however a hot item and a little […] protein would have been nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I am a pretty picky traveler, but really dont have anything to say that would even border on the negative. This hotel is awesome! Fell asleep to the sound of the ocean waves crashing just feet from our balcony and we walked to dinner and shops daily. Highly recommend this hotel! Wait, maybe too many people will start staying here...please stay away. […] ;-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
