My husband and I stayed for 2 days for our 30th wedding anniversary. It was the best 2 days ever. The hotel staff was wonderful, and everyone there was so helpful, friendly and professional and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The room was beautiful. We had a full ocean view and could hear the ocean... More

An unbelievable view. Right on the beach. My wife and two sons and a friend stayed at The Pacific Terrace for the holidays. We had two rooms side by side. It was wonderful. Clean. Walking distance to restaurants, stores and Starbucks. The desk and staff were perfect. The parking garage was easy to get in and out of. An easy... More

The Pacific Terrace Hotel is a lovely property on the boardwalk in Pacific Beach, a short walk down a series of steps to the beach. The hotel is wrapped around a small pool, offering full or partial ocean views. The rooms are clean, spacious, have very comfortable beds, thick towels, a refrigerator and some have a delightful balcony from which... More

Quite simply we love this hotel. This is our second visit and it didn't disappoint. We love the location. It is within walking distance of restaurants and night life. It is on a nice area of the beach to enjoy sun and sand. The path between the hotel and the ocean is a wonderful place to walk, bike, and skateboard.... More

I spent 5 days at pacific terrace and loved the location. It's located right on the pacific beach Boardwalk. I love that the hotel has afternoon cookies and refreshments. The rooms were clean and greatly enjoyed our ocean front view room. Would definitely stay here again and recommend for a young couple. Also, I would find street parking instead of... More

We stayed here for the second week of our honeymoon. Upon arrival my wife had arranged (unknown to me) for a bottle of nice red wine to be delivered to our room. When we entered our room, I was blown away by the nice bottle of wine and sweet card that awaited me. The staff did exactly what she asked... More

It was our 25th Anniversary trip. We are from Atlanta and started out in Las Vegas for a few days. The drive from Vegas to San Diego should have taken about 5 hours but took 11. I did not realize that my husband paid extra to have PTH to light candles and have a bottle of champagne waiting when we... More

Having spent 3 weeks travelling around California, this was our last stop before going home. Next time around, we'll be spending more time here. Clearly, its major strength is its location. You are literally, on top of the beach. I'd certainly recommend getting an Ocean view room, you can't help but just want to sit on the balcony and watch... More

This was our last stop on our California road trip in September, and how glad were we that we had saved the best till last!! Arrived at the hotel about 1 pm expecting to wait for room, but it was ready and check in was easy and swift. We had booked partial ocean view and enquired about upgrading to full... More
