Get Slow At Our Luxurious Carlsbad Hotel

Carlsbad, CA – The Beach Terrace Inn is unique among San Diego County hotels. Family-owned and independent, our boutique is Carlsbad’s only beachfront hotel. Nestled beachside within charming Carlsbad Village, our destination features over 70 restaurants and shops within walking distance. And with NO resort fees, perks such as breakfast, parking, WiFi, beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and toys are FREE.

We are passionately driven to be Slow, the kind of Slow that eases the mind and refreshes the body.  We believe the world stops where our sand begins.  At our luxurious sandy playground, you may experience quiet oceanside pleasures:  the beauty of a step by step descent to the sand or a solitary run on a deserted beach.  We support splashing in the surf as a means of family renewal. We vote for adventures in Carlsbad Village or a fantasy visit to Legoland.



We believe size matters, so we’ve chosen to be a small hotel with big rooms rather than a big hotel with small rooms.  We’ve remained owned by the same family since the 1960’s.  We are an independent, personal and quirky Carlsbad hotel.  We’ve grown organically, as needed, not as part of a master-planned community.  We believe in personality and choose to be remarkable rather than flashy.  We put our faith in love for what we do, not in hype or endless brand advertising.
