saw the reviews on tripadvisor and decided to trust the reviews, traveled from Boston to San Diego and were we ever happy to have made this decision. One of, if not the best hotel we have ever stayed at. Stayed for 11 days when we were only supposed to stay for 4. Hotel, views, and staff were that good. Especially... More

We live locally and decided to have a "stay-cation" birthday celebration. The Pacific Terrace Hotel is outstanding. We stayed in an oceanfront king suite which was beautifully appointed. The views and location are spectacular. Staff provided great customer service. If you like bike riding, this is the perfect place as the bike paths are fantastic.

Very impressed with this hotel. Staff and rooms were top notch. Location on the strand is fantastic. You can walk to all the bars and restaurants. Beds in room are plush and room is furnished with high end furniture. I got an upgrade to a partial view room which still had an incredible view from the patio. Sat outside and... More

Great location, view and price! Had a full ocean view room with a balcony. Bed was comfortable, room was very clean. We checked in late so we opted to go to Sprouts and grab some food to bring back so we could enjoy the hot tub. Sat on the balcony for dinner and breakfast, note to self, the Sea Gulls... More

We were a little apprehensive in booking this hotel, having never been to San Diego before and so we relied heavily on Tripadvisor reviews in selecting this property. Having traveled to many 5 star resorts over the past 30 years, we are accustomed to high quality hotels and since this was a family vacation, we didn't want to end up... More

My family and I stayed at the Pacific Terrace in March 2014 for 3 nights. I want to start by saying that the hotel is beautiful and completely maintained, our room was cleaned well every day and the staff is absolutely wonderful. Check in and check out were a breeze, and the staff really seemed to enjoy their jobs. There... More

If you are looking for a business retreat, meeting offsite, the Pacific Terrace Hotel is perfect. Julie and the entire meetings team did an amazing job helping us plan the event. The meeting room is cozy and don't be swayed that it is in the lower floor of the hotel, the setting turned out to be perfect to get our... More

I used to live in Pacific Beach (PB) for 7 yrs until last year, and have always idolized this place everytime I would go running on the boardwalk. The location is perfect...on the boardwalk, oceanview, and walking distance to all sorts of bars/shops/restaurants! Very classy and upscale so you also pay for the luxury as opposed to some other 'beach... More

When we arrived the gentleman at the desk said we could up grade to a suite that has 2 balconies, they only have 2 with 2 balconies at the hotel, I believe it was room 301, and it was GREAT!
