Overview

Outdoor deck terrace Beach Terrace InnShowers in the beach at Beach Terrace Inn

The Beach Terrace Inn in Carlsbad is ideal for travelers who stay beachfront to enjoy a slower pace of life. The 48-guestroom inn offers easy access to surfing along with an outdoor pool and hot tub. Another bonus: The inn is less than 5 miles from Legoland California.

The rooms at this boutique hotel are huge with a laid-back, quirky SoCal feel. Actually, the inn started as an apartment building in the 1960s and now encompasses three buildings. The inn overlooks its own private beach, with plenty of other beaches nearby. Carlsbad State Park’s beach is steps away at just a one-minute walk. Then there are Tamarack Beach (five-minute walk), Buccaneer Beach (30-minute walk) and Carlsbad Lagoon (37-minute walk). In between beachfront fun and activities in San Diego, many inn guests enjoy The Shoppes at Carlsbad Mall, a little less than 3 miles from the hotel.

Inn amenities include the continental breakfasts, Wi-Fi, parking and the 24-hour business center. They’re great, of course they are, but it’s the location and vibe of Beach Terrace Inn that really shine. They make for a hugely relaxing vacation. You can stay on the beach to sunbathe and surf as long as you want.

Various dining and entertainment options are within easy walking distance in Carlsbad Village (the inn is in the village, too). Grab coffee, sample pizza, nibble on a French dish or try a new seafood delicacy—the choice is yours. Meanwhile, San Diego sights are a bit down the road. For example, Balboa Park with its numerous museums is about 34 miles away. That’s easily doable for excursions, but avoid peak traffic times if you can.

In any case, Carlsbad and the Beach Terrace Inn offer a laid-back, cozy feel perfect for ocean lovers. You don’t get the quickest access to San Diego’s attractions, but you do get plenty of time to slow down and relax with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean.

One more thing, especially if you’re planning a wedding: Intimate ceremonies are a specialty at the inn. The private beach helps ensure that ceremonies proceed smoothly, and the 50-person reception venue dishes up full ocean views
