We spent one week in this fantastic hotel where the concept of good service is a must. The rooms are large, with sophisticated design, and very nice beds. If you can pay extra for a view on the sea, you will be amazed. Location is perfect, wifi free. Breakfast is the only weak point, but at least it is cheap... More

The only thing bad I have to say about this hotel, is the fact that we were able to spend only one night there. The location is excellent, the staff is fantastic and the amenities are plentiful. From beach toys for the kids to fresh cookies in the evening, there is something for everyone. I highly recommend this place.

We stayed there 4 nights in a family suite, very well equipped. We were on the ground floor and it was not loudly. We had a private terrace from where you can see the see. Beds were very good and also the service. Our son slept in a convertible sofa but the sofa was very good because it had an... More

Having arrived late at night and had hassle with car hire we were immediately put at ease by the fantastic staff here. The hotel is in a great location and the rooms are generously sized. Even the partial ocean view rooms are lovely. The breakfast buffet is good value at $14 per person. The pool side looks out over fantastic... More

This is a very nice hotel, with great views of the ocean (depending on the room you pay for). The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were large and clean, and the suite was perfect for a long weekend. We drove from Arizona, so we had a cooler that expanded on the small fridge in the... More

By far the best hotel on the beach. Upscale property. 4 stars ****. Ample parking. Great location. Nicely appointed. Boardwalk runs right in front of hotel making for a pleasant walk to restaurants and souvenir shops.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel has the perfect location to enjoy the San Diego boardwalk. The view is second to none and we loved the fact we could step right onto the beach. Our rooms where very spacious with good bathrooms. Everywhere could do with a bit of redecoration,,particularly wooden floors with rugs to replace the carpets,... More

Julie G, Director of Sales at Pacific Terrace Hotel, responded to this review

We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Pacific Terrace. Thank you for mentioning the little improvements you'd like to see, we love updating the hotel, but hate to inflict noise, dust, and 'maintenance' efforts on our guests, so we try and do those things after the busy summer. Although around here, it seems like it's always... More
