About Beach Terrace Inn, Carlsbad

California chill on a private stretch of beach

Life in the village

Nestled among beach bungalows, Beach Terrace Inn sits on a private-access beach, a 2-minute stroll from laid-back shops and surf shacks. From summer outdoor movies to fall Harvest Festivals and holiday events, quaint, buzzing Carlsbad Village makes visitors feel at home.

Soothing spa, family fun

For a change of pace from surfing, sunning, and long walks on the sand, you can stroll to the village, with its beach boutiques and cool cafés, or indulge in a soothing massage. The healing waters of Carlsbad Mineral Water Spa are a block away, while LEGOLAND® is a 10-minute drive.

Oceanfront pool, hot tub

From its oceanfront pool and hot tub to its "beach book exchange," this family-run hotel welcomes guests into the art of the "slow life." Free continental breakfast and beach umbrellas complete the effect, and beach fitness packs are available if you need some revving up.

Free WiFi, comfy beds

Guestrooms are smoke-free and spacious, and most overlook the ocean; a handful face the interior courtyard. After a day on the beach, you can stretch out on your pillowtop mattress, connect with friends via free WiFi, and watch your favorite shows on the 42-inch flat-screen TV.

Beach Terrace Inn, Carlsbad
Very Good8.0
Very nice stay--rooms were clean, great ocean views-- but a few issues with customer service: the late check out policy is ridiculous--$79 for up to 2hrs late (even 15min!) And 1/2 a night's rate for anytime between 1-3pm. The place was clearly not booked up the weekend we were there and doubtful that a bus load of people would be arriving on a Sunday. Don't stay here if youre even considering the need for a late check out. The guy working the front desk also seemed pretty clueless--gave us wrong wifi instructions, told us our room was one floor down (it was 2) and no help with dinner recommendations. We were staying there to race in the 1/2 Ironman and they didn't even know what the event was let alone that it was a major event happening just up the rode in Oceanside.

Expected much more for the price.
Stayed for 2 nights for our first time in Carlsbad. Man at reception desk was cordial but not warm or friendly. Also didn’t know how far Legoland was from hotel off the top of this head. We asked for pizza delivery recommendation and the resto he suggested doesn’t even deliver. Ocean view room was mostly rooftop view with some ocean. That was disappointing. Housekeeping left dirty and wet cleaning rag on bathroom counter. Bed sheets old, pilling. Mattress not comfortable. The carpet dirty so we wore our flip flops around the room. Breakfast was included, but few healthy (unprocessed) choices.
