Beach Terrace Inn Informative - Beach Front Room
CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA -- Last weekend we stayed at the Beach Terrace Inn in Carlsbad, CA. Our room was floor level overlooking the beach. We were 100 feet from the water. The view was spectacular and hearing the waves all day and night was very relaxing. But, we had to climb up and down 3 flights of stairs. The elevators were on the other side of the hotel and we didn't have access to them on our side. The pool was in the center of the hotel so the hotel is cut in half, divided by the pool.
The room itself was huge. There were 5 adults and 4 kids in one room, but we all fit comfortably. The bathroom was huge as well. The hotel provides shampoo and conditioner and shower gel in handy dipensers attached to the shower wall. That was a nice touch.
The staff was friendly, but I felt that the housekeeping could use some training. The first day, the housekeeping made the beds and gave us new towels. She didn't vacuum or clear away the breakfast dishes. The second day, we were in the room and all she did was hand me fresh towels. I asked her to take the old towels and to take out the trash, but she just turned and walked away from me.
The hotel provided a Continental breakfast. It was your typical breakfast of fruit, pastries, and juices and coffee. Only 3 kinds of cereal was offered and they only had whole milk or non-fat. At $300 a night, we were expecting something more, like eggs and bacon.
I would stay at Beach Terrace Inn again, but mostly for the view. Overall, I did enjoy my stay.
