"On the beach"
The hotel was nice, but I thought it was over priced. My ocean view room had a view that was partially obstructed by a large building in front of it.

"almost perfect"
couldn't be in a nicer location or closer to the sand - our only slight complaint was with the other guests, there definitely seemed to be a "party" vibe i.e. young people (early 20s) with beers walking around the property and very loud music in room next door at 12:45am (however, it did seem to get turned down soon after calling the front desk)

"Convenient Location"
We spent one night at this hotel, a last minute decision to get away. I had made the reservation online prior to seeing the hotel. I was disappointed by the room which was represented as an oceanfront room. Our location was behind the swimming pool area, so we had lots of distracting noise and lack of privacy. We were also surprised by the fact we couldn't get signals for any of our devices (cellphones and tablets) and I was never able to access the hotels wireless internet connection despite many efforts. Disappointing.

"Not bad"
The hotel was very nice and on a great beach. My only two complaints would be the wifi is very poor (others have mentioned as well), and the hotel staff was knocking on my door at 11:01am on check out day to rush us out. We had our 18 month old daughter with us and we needed a few extra minutes.

"Just a few days away from home"
Just a few days away from home to rest and listen to the ocean. Having a beautiful room right on the sand is exactly what the doctor ordered. The rooms are equipped beautifully and the shower is to die for. The staff is more than accommodating and the stay overall was wonderful. This is the place we choose anytime we need a quick getaway.

My daughter and I stayed at the hotel for vacation. We had a gorgeous view of the beach and could hear the waves from our room through the entire stay (talk about sleeping great)! The staff was perky and helpful. The hotel provided everything you could need for pool or beach fun. I only have two complaints. The first is the pillow top mattress. I have a memory foam bed and could definitely feel the springs at night. Not a big deal if you have a spring mattress at home but if you don't like me it's pretty uncomfortable. The second was the complimentary breakfast. The fruit was not fresh and everything else was fattening pastries. It would have been nice if the resort had some sort of restaurant where I could have at least ordered fresh food. Fortunately there were tons of places within walking distance including swamis where I could have fresh raw juice made to order! Overall my daughter and I loved our trip and will be coming back.

We stayed four nights and enjoyed it very much. Many local restaurants with easy walking distance. There are many levels of stairs at the hotel, so that might be difficult for an elderly or handicapped person. We have stayed here several times over the last ten years, and will continue to do so. The only down side was that we reserved a room with two double beds, which proved to be a little too small for a family of four.

Beach Terrace is Prime Location! On the Beach, Walking Distance to Restaurants, Friendly Staff, it was the Perfect Getaway Weekend. We live in the desert, so we had a good laugh when people told us 80 degrees was hot. We absolutely loved our walks on the beach, watching the surf and listening to the waves hit the beach. It was Heaven.

"nice hotel"
Nice hotel but with only complimentary breakfasts and no laundry machines/facilities available hard to deal with an extended stay. Recommend that at least once a week eggs etc. for breakfast and better to have laundry machines / dryers on site for the convenience of the customer. Will not stay here again due to these two reasons.

"Absolutely and perfect location on a great beach!"
We spent seven days and six nights with our 7 year old grandson at this hotel, using it as a home base for Legoland, Disneyland, the Music Museum and the Wild Animal Park. Our grandson had so much fun playing on the beach with other children his age, it was difficult to pry him away to see the sights!

"Great location, easy to come to/from beach, pool"
We go every year, sometimes twice a year. Great for families because it's a small hotel that's easy to get around. It's very easy for parents to be on the pool deck in the comfortable cabanas and lounge chairs while the kids play on the sand and in the ocean. One can easily go to the room without having to get dressed because the corridors are outdoor and there's no "fancy" common areas that you have to worry about getting dirty. Breakfast trays are great so you can bring food back to your room and eat on your balcony. But if you want the full hotel amenities like a bar, restaurant, spa, gym, etc, this is not the place for you. This place is all about enjoying the beach.

"Everything you can imagine!"
Since this wasn't a "big name" hotel I was nervous about our stay. Upon arrival check in was simple with no issues. We were given the exact room we requested, ocean view with terrace. Waking into room was breathtaking! Breeze blowing in with the waves crashing in the background. Straight view to the ocean! My husband and I were thoroughly impressed. Hotel was clean, breakfast was great and staff was amazing! Free usage of beach toys/chairs was the cherry on top! Can't wait to go back :) We even saw dolphins swimming early one morning! Extra $ for ocean view is worth every penny!

"Excellent hotel, updated, on the beach."
The hotel is newly updated, right on the beach, absolutely beautiful, awesome staff and you cant ask for a better location. Carlsbad is a quaint town with super food choices and shops. It is close enough to San Diego for day trips and hiking. For families, the pool was awesome, clean and heated. Very close to Legoland, the zoo and safari parks. We love to walk the beaches, clean and amazing views. The staff was so friendly and left me care packages when I didnt need maid service, very nice touch. The continental breakfast is one of the best I have every had and offered a super view of the ocean while enjoying breakfast. I would add a small protein like hard boiled eggs, but otherwise, this place was absolutely perfect.

"right on the beach"
Nearly every thing you expect from a modern moderately expensive hotel. The rooms are very nice and very up to date. The beach is just a fence gate away. The pool is heated with a staff member (not a life guard) close at hand. The cons: the hot tub is poorly designed with steps (which can not be seen when the spa is running) that can easily cause falls when entering the tub. The breakfast provided was a vegitarian meal with fruit, dry cereal, pastries and orange juice. We ate out most mornings.

Second time at the Beach Terrace. Booked an ocean front room and location was great. Large room with large bath. Unfortunately the bath had a smell that would not go away. The wi fi did not work the entire stay and the fire alarm went off at 7 am on Saturday morning and lasted what seemed like several minutes.

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.

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!

"beautiful ocean views"
The hotel sits on a beautiful beach with an extremely nice cleaning crew. Unfortunately, the same CANNOT be said for the office staff! If you stay here, make sure you keep all receipts and know exactly what you are being charged for, before they charge you.. There seems to be some dishonesty going on in the front office and if you try to contact the owner, you will find there is no way of doing so. Her business has no working phone number and the only way to contact her is to pay for the search! Owner appears to have a sketchy background according to my research. This is so unfortunate! It really is a beautiful place, and there is no reason whatsoever to be dishonest! This hotel could do so much more business by being honest. It would be the perfect gem if not for the way they do business!

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 !
