Plastic can be fun

A travel blog entry by mandmcorp


This morning started with a room change. Not that there was anything wrong with last night's room, but Michael wanted to have a Pirate Room as he believed he would get a hat and a sword! The Pirate Room is great but no hat and sword. Very sad boy :-(

The buffet breakfast was fabulous and they had lots of stuff just for kids. In fact, everything in this hotel is designed for kids. In certain areas if you jump on the carpet, it ***** and a Lego ...

Legoland Day 1

... past the Lego gaming buildings (where there are Lego Xbox games - I knew about these through my research, and also knew I'd never be able to drag the kids away if I let them in there). I knew there was a special Lego model around here somewhere close...

...and we find it! All 5,000,000+ bricks of it! A life size Lego X-Wing! Awesome. They let us know that when they brought it in they had to reinforce the concrete slab, as it started ...

Loving Legoland

A travel blog entry by definaclan


Bricks, blocks and primary colours. Yep - this was our day in Legoland. California style.
Which apparently for us that means warm, humid & ...... foggy?

The boys just loved it - and gratefully, so did we.

Might have to just leave todays storyboard to the ...

Sea World

A travel blog entry by ramsayfamily


This morning we have braved public transport and headed for sea world leaving our home at the campground. We were lucky that with it being a Monday and raining, there were no queues and by the lunch time the sun finally came out. The girls loved all of the shows especially Shamu and Poppy even braved going on the water ...

... colds. We seem to be over the worst of the jet lag now, I'm pleased to say. Ian's cold has basically disappeared, and mine is so much better. We've also had no Internet connection. Previously, we had shared our neighbor's Internet service, but they moved last week, and with them went our Internet. Ian was able to figure something else out, but it meant ordering some sort of widget. Said widget ...

    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.

    Great Family Vacaton


    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!!

    Great view, so so experience


    Stayed here in the fall of 2003. This hotel has the location to be first class.

    Not As Expected


    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.

    Wonderful Weekend Getaway


    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.

    The stay at Terrace Inn @ Carlsbad


    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!

    The best


    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.

    Wonderful atmosphere!


    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).
