I had made it to Andrea's safely so the next thing I needed to do was get organised and plan what I intended to do over here. Step one was getting a Social Security Number, than a bank account and an American number. This all took a couple of weeks. The next step was to revamp my resume and apply for jobs. This was a long repetitive process and I found myself looking up Summer Camp jobs so I could spend more time travelling and the fact that camps hire a lot of foreigners. ...
... of getting them, then see the “expensive option” – they’ll print the photo onto a wall of Lego bricks. Now that is unique. Although we have to get two, well, we’re on holiday! And now we have two unique ride photos that are also Lego!
We find ourselves near a Lego 4-D movie cinema, with a show starting in about 20 minutes, so we take a rest while waiting and catch “The Adventures of Clutch ...
... a cup of coffe was in front of us that they wanted to keep filling, we both ordered a bacon omelette, and the waitress asked which sides we wanted with in an reeled of off a list, and was shocked when we said we didn't want any and insisted they were included... So to placate her we said potatoes, then she asked what toast we wanted... And from our reaction finally realised we just wanted the omelette. I think she thought we were weird. ...

A quick stop by PetCo Park and it was time to find a place to sleep. With no nearby camping options we booked a hotel online and headed north a bit.
With dinner from a vending machine (it's vacation!), we settle in to stream the comedy show Arrested Development.

After Pizza Port we went to a new bar that was opened and doing beers and cocktails, Bar 21. we enjoyed dessert and the boys enjoyed some craft beers, before heading on a mini pub crawl/tour of the Carlsbad night life! really pleasant and chilled evening. and Carlsbad was totally lush and thanks to Greg and Laura for helping us with this night out! x

Historical Traveler Reviews Beach Terrace Inn Carlsbad
Favorite place in Carlsbad
We love the Beach Terrace Inn in Carlsbad. Yes there use to be a cat and her name was Gertrude. Only one cat and she was a pleasure to be around. She grew old and passed away in February. We got to see her the day before she died and said our goodbyes.
We love the ocean front rooms and the rooms are arranged different than most. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. The pool and jacuzzi were being renovated when we were there in Feb. and we were very disappointed. We have gone there three years in a row and the prices keep going up so as much as we love it we probably can't afford to stay there again. You can walk to almost everything from there. We give it two thumbs up.
We stayed here Aug. 23-28, 2004 in an ocean view room and would love to return again (but, they told me when checking out that they are nearly booked for 2005). We had a ocean view room and the view was great! This hotel is older and everything is not perfect (breakfast has limited choices, rooms are not 100% clean), but it is wonderful for families. It is situated right on the beach next to multi-million dollar homes (and appears to be the only hotel on this long strectch of beach that is -others are across the street). The staff (including the security guards) were friendly and very helpful. The beach is great for long walks (I thought I could make it to the visible Oceanside pier, but it was just too far), body surfing, etc. This hotel is for the young and active (lots of stairs), fun pool, games to check out from lobby. I did not see a single cat during my visit. Good restaurants within walking distance. A real CA beach vacation. Take a beach umbrella or better yet a canopy and enjoy the beach all day long!!
Stayed here in the fall of 2003. This hotel has the location to be first class.
The Beach Terrace Inn is OK based on its location. It is not nearly as good as other reviewers say. Maybe we went with higher expectations based on other reviewers.
My boyfriend and I were desperately in need of an impromptu New Years getaway. We traveled down the coast 1/101 from Newport Beach on New Years Eve. We decided to stay in Laguna Beach for dinner and the night, however, we were terribly unhappy with the room accommodations we found. We still had a couple days left so we decided to keep driving until we found the perfect spot on the beach. There we were driving on New Years day, in and out of the beach communities Dana Point, Capistrano Beach, and San Clemente; when we came across this Inn. We checked availability, however, decided to keep traveling to see what Encinitas, Solano Beach, and Del Mar had to offer. We stopped for some oysters and a glass of champagne at the Brigantine in Del Mar to talk it over. Hands down we were heading back to the Beach Terrace Inn. The room (ocean front) was wonderful (we left the door open all night to listen to the waves). As a matter of fact, we even made up a bed on the sofa so that we could watch the spectacular waves at night with the fireplace flickering. It was perfect the staff was wonderful and extremely helpful we will certainly go again SOON!!Thank you Beach Terrace Inn we really appreciated you.
Be carefull with on line resorvations!
The discription @ B.W. web page said "beach front" rooms. I paid the
xtra $ for "beach front", but they stuck me in the back behind a
building( the real beach front rooms). The front desks solution was a
less expensive room @ the same higher rate.
The room was very nice. Also, one of the best strechess of beach I've ever seen.
The pool area is well over due for renavations.
Next time,I will take my chances with the cheaper rate.
Hi I am 15 going on 16 years of age and my family and I have been going
We loved this place!
We stayed in a large room overlooking the pool, and of course the beach and ocean. The view and location of this hotel is terrific. We had our own balcony and enjoyed it at all hours of the day. The sound of the waves crashing was a constant. We enjoyed the beach and the fact that it was so handy. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the price was reasonable for beachfront lodging. We walked to shops and restaurants and would love to stay there again!
We go every summer. The rooms are nice but not the fannciest. They work great for going down to the beach, back to the room, back to the beach, up to the pool, back to the room, back to the beach. Thats what everybody does. Its quite at night and the walks along the beach are great. Never had a problem with anybody making trouble and we had small kids when we first started going. Its very laid back with mostly familys there. We hardly use the car unless we need food to cook. You can walk to 4-6 places to eat within 10 mins easy. Can you tell i love the place.
This hotel has it all. Comfortable rooms with ocean surf only yards away. We love to listen to the roar of the ocean from our open window. The pool terrace rooms have balconies that overlook the pool and the ocean right below the pool deck. The "lower beach building" rooms are right on the beach seawall with balconies. The "upper beach building" rooms overlook the ocean (probably with partial views - I have not stayed in this type yet). The village area of Carlsbad is within walking distance with plenty of restaurants and shopping - a lot of antique stores. There is a private staircase with access directly to the beach. (Only a few stairs).
