STAY AT THE BEACH

Posted Jan 25, 2015
Hotel has been undated. Spacious room with great ocean views and sound of the ocean. Great location within walking distance to everything in downtown Carlsbad! Wish I still lived there.

Perfect Stay at Beach Terrace Inn

Posted Jan 16, 2015
Pros: See above
Cons: Not one single thing needs to be done.
Location: The Beach Terrace Inn was right on the beach providing such a wonderful view and soothing sounds of waves breaking.
Every thing was perfect from the time of checking in to checking out. Staff wonderful - room absolutely spacious and beautiful and the ocean only a short distance from Inn providing the awesome sounds of the ocean. Complimentary breakfast was nicely done. So looking forward to returning soon. Can't think of any other place we would rather spend time away from home. This was our Christmas present to each other. Best present ever.

By far one of the best places I have ever stayed. The staff was amazing and very accommodating the view was the best anywhere. Pay extra for the ocean front it is worth it.

Absolutely Gorgeous Hotel on the Beach

Posted Dec 2, 2014
This has been our favorite hotel so far and we travel frequently. Our suite was absolutely beautiful with a stunning view of the pacific ocean. The room was super spacious and very clean . The continental breakfast was also very good. Everything was fresh...fruits, breads, pastries etc. The staff was great. We had a wonderful stay.

Great beach location and setting

Posted Nov 4, 2014
Pros: location at the beach
Cons: Horrible housekeeping service.
Location: lots of restaurants and shopping nearby plus the beach
very poor housekeeping. Housekeeping did not show at all for one of our days of stay. Housekeeping left a basket at the door at 6:00 p.m. with fresh towels. No other service. Housekeeping showed up at 3:30 p.m. on another day. The continental breakfast was good. The beach was really good. Our stay was four days in length. Paper thin adjoining room walls. Stairs up to the second floor were tricky and narrow, more like a ship or industrial stairway, not meant for packing up luggage. ( or carrying luggage down).

Find Peace at the Beach

Posted Nov 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
The Beach Terrace in is the jewel in the crown of southern California hotels. It was clean and on the beach. We had an inner court yard room but could still hear and see the ocean. It was peaceful, as is promised in its lovely banners, "find peace on the beach." The area has reasonable dining and a great two mile walkway along the ocean. There are outlets near by and lots of shops. The pool, which faced the beach was lovely. My husband and I can't wait to go back. The hotel and area was family friendly. Would highly recommend for those looking for quiet and relaxation.
