We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your honeymoon with us! Our guests do love the firepit tables, they are always a popular spot on the pool deck. Our optional parking fee is $25, and our garage is gated and secure. Thanks for staying at the Pac Terrace, we hope to see you again soon! More

We only stayed here for one night.. upgraded to the Presidential Suite for an extra $20 which was right in the middle of the hotel! Loved the view from our balcony. We had a poolside view and a beach view! Loved that we had complimentary beach chairs/umbrella and 2 hour bike rentals. The room itself was spacious. We had a... More

I stayed here many years ago for business. At the time, it was an average hotel, with a great location and view. I particularly remembered watching the surfers from the pool deck. What a great experience for this East Coaster (where we don't have much surf). When I had a chance to return, I insisted on staying here, despite the... More

I stayed here many times during the past couple of years and paid the price no matter what it was. Yesterday I received a letter from them disclosing that the credit card I used to stay with them in March had been stolen along with 60,000 additional customer credit card numbers. While they offered a 20% discount in return for... More

We stayed at Pacific Terrace hotel as a birthday present and the stay was excellent. It's located right at the edge of the boardwalk, as close to the Pacific Ocean as a hotel can get. I'd booked the stay after seeing pictures of the resort and reading reviews. The rooms and suites are beautifully decorated with sturdy, ornate and top... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while road tripping on our honeymoon. The hotel location is great - right on the seafront in the Pacific Beach area of San Diego, and the hotel itself clean and comfortable. It also had a lot of facilities (pool, fitness, surfboards etc) but as we were just passing through rather than staying for a... More

We booked a family suite on the ground floor at Pacific Beach. A little pricy so but we were booking late in the summer and it was the only one available. If you have time to book early, I would recommend facing the ocean and on their 2nd floor. The first floor is great though if you have kids and... More
