Beach Terrace Inn

2775 Ocean St., Carlsbad, California, 92008, USA

Fodor’s Expert Review

One of only four SoCal hotels directly on the sand, this former 1960s Best Western was remodeled in 2011 as a boutique inn with plantation shutters, luxurious linens, and open floor plans. Neutral tones, granite counters, and slate-tile bathrooms give the rooms a modern feel, while complimentary amenities—including Wi-Fi, parking, breakfast, and beach equipment—set this property apart from the pack. Every room has an oceanfront terrace, except for rooms 30–35, which are slightly more affordable. The swimming pool and breakfast lounge are bonus spots for relaxation. For more space and privacy, request one of the six corner units. Repeat guests and those celebrating a special occasion are treated to an “Ocean Love Basket” with wine and other romantic goodies.
