We planned this trip last minute. I had heard this used to be the old vacation villiage which I had stayed at as a kid. It was the same spot but not the same place! We had an amazing room right over the crashing waves, we saw dolphins every day from our room and the beach and the weather was... More

The Pacific Edge hotel excelled in the area of customer service. I was there for a bachelorette party, and the front desk surprised us with some sweet treats and sparkling wine upon check-in. Service was speedy each time we asked for anything. The room we stayed in was dated but clean. The hot tub was a large size and clean.... More

If you like being near downtown and right on the beach at an economical price, this is the place for you! The rooms are nothing fancy, but have everything you need for a few nights to a long vacation. And the staff is fantastic. I have stayed in the queen deluxe, regular queen and 2 bedroom apartments. All were great... More

The hotel is right along PCH and is a perfect location which makes up for the okay rooms. The lounges on the beach are also an added plus. The structure of the hotel is a bit confusing and there is a big price range, so it's hard to tell what sort of room you will get before you arrive.

Such a great place. Excellent staff, fair pricing and a view to die for. I took my gf for Valentine's day. We stayed in a room overlooking the water. It was an amazing stay. I hope to be back there soon. :0 Eric

We stay at Pacific at Edge every year for the last 10 years. We always stay ocean front but this year we were fortunate to be upgraded to the villa. It was a gorgeous free standing house with 2 bedrooms and 2 spa bathrooms and 3 fireplaces . Gorgeous Gorgeous. We may never be able to stay in a normal... More

First, I will qualify my review with the fact that I stayed here for a business meeting. While it was more than adequate for that purpose, this hotel is really geared towards families and those who want a weekend on the beach in southern California. I had a great oceanfront room that had definitely been recently renovated. The room appointments,... More

Yes, attention to detail is very important. Those little issues should have been attended to before you checked in, and I apologize for falling short in that regard, as well some of our guests' pets' behavior. That's not acceptable, and we'll look into it immediately. Still, it sounds like you really enjoyed our views, and we hope to welcome you... More

Went here for my anniversary and had an oceanfront room. The room was very nice and the view was great. The staff was exeallent and the hotel even gave us complementary cake, flowers, and sparkling water.

I've stayed at Pacific Edge before & that's why I'll never stay anywhere else. If you're looking for the best location with clean, beach-themed rooms - look no further. But the best part about Pacific Edge is the staff. You can't train people to be genuine, and when you interact with any employee at Pacific Edge, you'll experience this as... More
