My husband and I stayed Monday-Saturday with our two children. We absolutely loved the Pacific Terrace Hotel! It was fantastic to walk out of the hotel and right down steps to the beach or walk down the boardwalk to shop or eat. This is a nice hotel and not cheap. You definitely pay for the service and view, which we... More

Place is awesome. Staff is great and place is so clean. Beach wasn't as nice as a Mission Beach area but right out the back door. Pool over looks beach and was perfect. Great food close. Have bikes, chairs, beach stuff for free use. Decent little gym.

Pacific Terrace Hotel is a very nice hotel at Pacific Beach in San Diego. The pool is nice with lots of comfortable chaise loungers with large towels. Everyone that works here is very friendly. We would definitely stay here again

We stayed in a Jr Suite/Full Ocean View on 2nd floor and it was amazing! The photos from the hotel are spot-on for views, room decor and hotel amenities. Location is perfect for hanging out on the beach, the pool, or people watching on the strand. Walkable to restaurants, bars, grocery store etc. Staff is pleasant and helpful! So convenient... More

Well located at the little PB bike and hike trail, mini boulevard. This hotel has a very nice and loose atmosphere. Great big and clean rooms, super comfy bed and easy access to the beach and all what PB has to offer. Did I mention the pool and it's service. outstanding! Bikes, boogie boards are one of the amenities!

This place is great! My wife and I stayed here for our 25th anniversary. They treated us like a king and queen. Best hotel stay I have ever had. The staff was super friendly, the rooms were very clean, the beach is awesome.

Incredible friendly staff and beautiful hotel with great view of the beach. Loved having access to beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards. Rode hotel bikes along the boardwalk - great location. Will definitely stay here on our next trip to SD!

I recently wrote a negative review about a couple of missing jewelry pieces that took place at The Pacific Terrace Hotel in San Diego. Although the hotel itself is beautiful and we had great experiences with most of the hotel staff while there, we came across a huge issue upon arriving home. It all started when my boyfriend and I...

My friend and I stayed here 3 nights to celebrate our birthdays. I found the staff to be extremely friendly and accommodating.

Our family of 22 people from 1-1/2 years to 85 loved our stay at this hotel. The location, on Pacific Beach, has the Boardwalk in front, then the beach and ocean beyond. The waves roll in, so that the young swimmers can handle the surf well. . The hotel has three stories, a roomy, nice pool and a central pool... More
