This was our third trip to the Pacific Terrace within 3 years since we always want beach view and it really is the nicest hotel right on Mission Beach. I would never stay anywhere else. We have never had a problem with the staff - they have always went out of their way to answer questions and accommodate any requests... More

Loved the hotel, staff and area. Only downer for us was the number of homeless, though we consider that more of a city responsibility. While they did not give us issues I'd not want my wife or young daughters being out alone in the evening/late evenings. We still look forward to returning regardless!

Loved this hotel. Great service, excellent quality furnishings, walking distance to everything, great restaurants, boardwalk and beach are right out the door. Walked to The Backyard, a new restaurant with fresh food and excellent drinks. Bartender concocted his own drinks from scratch.

We booked our room several months ago and got the full ocean view room at a great rate. The room was large and recently renovated - the view was spectacular. Our room also had a refrig and microwave. The hotel staff were very friendly. It was a short drive to La Jolla which had many, wonderful restaurants.

I've just returned from San Diego for Spring Break with my kids and mom. We stayed at the Pacific Terrace Hotel for the whole duration of our stay; I'm so happy that I read the reviews on trip advisor about this hotel. The hotel is in a prime spot, centrally located near many of the restaurants and shops, it’s on... More

The beach view is breathtaking. The hospitality staff could use some lessons from West Inn and Suites in Carlsbad. Simply stated, the desk staff seemed a little snooty and put out with questions. The Caribbean room has free tea, lemonade and water during the daytime but try to get a coffee in the same space in the am on your... More

loved staying here for 5 nights. We had a room with kitchenette (302) Only suggestion I have is that the Kitchenette could use some more items: a bread knife, a cutting board, some beer/juice glasses, pepper and salt, some bigger bowls and paper towels. Will hopefully come back here

We loved the Pacific Terrace. Wow! Everything was fantastic. The staff was very attentive and fun. Beach was incredible. Sunsets were incredible. Location was pretty cool, too. Just far enough away from the rowdy crowd, but close enough to tons of fun! Excellent!
