We live in Colorado and wanted to take a quick weekend trip to the beach. My husband made all of the plans and I was blown away when we got to the hotel. Not only was the location fantastic (it's right on the beach) but the room had a very romantic ambiance. Clean, spacious, great lighting. We stayed right on... More

Looked long and hard when choosing where to stay in San Diego, the choice of Pacific Terrace was a great move. Payed a little more for a third floor corner ocean view. If your budget can stretch go ocean view, well worth it. Our room was very spacious and house keeping was maybe the best we have encountered on our... More

Professional, beautiful, comfortable, and enjoyable from arrival to departure. You are remembered and valued as a guest. Worth every penny. This is the place you will long to return to - and will, as often as you can. We would stay nowhere else in San Diego. Gorgeous property. Spacious and elegant room. Views to die for. The staff are some... More

We just spent three nights at Pacific Terrace and we could not have had a more wonderful experience. Our ocean view room was spacious, immaculate, the view and sound of the waves breathtaking. All amenities are provided. We had a third floor room, which I would recommend as we experienced very little noise from the pool which our room over... More

Nice location with great ocean views. Rooms are large, clean and well appointed. The best thing about this place is the service and staff. Everyone there from the management to the staff cleaning our room made you feel welcome. Third time visitor to Pacific Terrace, trust me, you can't go wrong here.

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
