2020 has been a year of change. In the new year, we can look back on the first year of the decade with new perspectives, changed daily routines, and appreciation for how we’ve adapted to new norms. At times, the year has felt hectic. Work has changed, home life has changed, socializing has changed, shopping has changed, and eating out has changed. Regardless of these changes and the busyness they have brought with them, one thing we can all agree on is that we’re ready to leave 2020 behind and get a fresh start in 2021. If you’re looking for a place to renew and recharge, Carlsbad has some of the best places in Southern California to book a stay, enjoy the coast, and soak up the beauty that surrounds the city.
Established in 1960, the Beach Terrace Inn is a key part of the city’s resort culture. Their on-the-water retreat has survived the test of time. The unique footprint of the beachfront escape is part of what makes the Carlsbad coastline a popular destination for tourists. The Beach Terrace Inn has the Southern California coastal vibes that draw visitors in and make them want to stay. In the ’60s, the hotel was originally built as a set of desirable waterfront apartments. These original apartments are what make the current rooms at the Inn comfortable and relaxing. The guest rooms are large and spaced out with multiple levels and accompanying views. In 1960, the property started with one apartment building. The expansive views and demand for a comfortable waterfront getaway quickly grew. In the 1970s another building was added, followed by a third in the 1980s. This growth and longevity is precisely what is so unique about the hotel. In addition to the spacious rooms, the Inn also has its very own private beach, just steps away from the 7 miles of coastline that Carlsbad calls home.
Another factor that sets the Beach Terrace Inn apart is the family that made it. The Inn is still family-owned and operated and the staff has years of experience under their belts. The same family who understood the magic of Southern California in the 60s are bringing the joy of SoCal to guests today. The art of slow and methodical relaxation is at their core, and the unpretentious ability to experience luxury without pretense are a few things that give this Carlsbad beachfront escape staying power. The Inn acknowledges that the natural beauty of Carlsbad’s coastline can stand on its own. By adding simple amenities like a pool, wifi, free parking, breakfast, and a beach valet – guests at the Inn can enjoy the coastline without distraction.
In an interview featured in Pegasus, Renier Milan, Vice President of TOBO Investments, the parent company that owns Beach Terrace Inn, said:
“We feel very strongly that the regular world ends where our sand begins. We practice a relaxed vibe, which is why I can’t emphasize enough how friendly and helpful our staff is. In fact, we hire based on personality traits and then train the skill.”
The guest rooms at the Beach Terrace Inn offer one of many views. From a Courtyard View to a Horizon View, to an Ocean Front Panoramic View and everything in between – there is something to catch your breath at every turn. Balconies are available in almost every configuration and the cool ocean breeze flows through rooms with ease. With stunning beaches and breathtaking views, the striking cliffs and crashing waves are just steps away from the hotel’s front door. As the only true beachfront hotel in the area, the Beach Terrace Inn has amazing views, shorefront decks, and an outdoor patio that puts you right where you want to be when you need to relax.
During a year where everything seems to be changing, the beauty of Southern California sustains. At the Beach Terrace Inn, everyday happiness is ingrained into the service, amenities, and chilled out vibes throughout the hotel. For the winter season, they are serving up beachfront memories with safety in mind. Their Winter Presence Special offers up to 20% off, and if you stay 3 nights, your third night is free.
And, while Beach Terrace Inn remains the only true beachfront hotel in Carlsbad, Best Western Plus Beach View Lodge occupies an incredible location just 70 paces from the beach as well. The Carlsbad, Best Western is owned by the same family as the Beach Terrace Inn. By operating two entirely different hotels, one an independent and the other part of a major brand, the team at Beach Terrace Inn and Carlsbad, Best Western are able to offer beachfront experiences to a wide range of travelers at a variety of different price points.
If you’re looking for a getaway that encapsulates all of the joy that Carlsbad has to offer, the Beach Terrace Inn is the spot to be. Book a room today for a getaway that is bright and breezy – despite how hectic this year has been.
