The room was spacious and nice. Staff was always friendly and helpful. Location is great, right on the boardwalk and beach. There were several homeless people that hang around that area however, but other than that, it's a nice area. Must try Kono's for breakfast. Just like a 5 minute walk down the boardwalk. We did not pay the $28... More

Our family stayed at Pacific Terrace in March 2015. It is a smallish hotel....less than 100 rooms just steps away from the Boardwalk and Pacific Beach. The staff was super friendly...always saying hello. The pool was great. We had two rooms.. my husband and I had a Suite on the second floor, with a king size bed and kitchen with... More

This resort looked good online, but was even better than described. This is a very well run hotel, the entire staff was cheerful and well trained. Beautiful property and junior suite, very good breakfast, great location. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend this property.

Loved the location and awesome customer service. Great outdoor heated pool! Will definitely stay here again! Location included lots of shopping near by, including great restaurants and a CVS. The room also has a refrigerator which is awesome and the pool bar serves cookies each day after 4pm.

We loved our stay. The views were stunning and the property and people were wonderful, clean and ready for visitors. The greatest resource is not the sunset views, or beach access, or lovely pool deck. The greatest resource is the beach walkway right out side the front of the hotel so you can bike or walk up and down the... More

We just loved this hotel. We loved listening to the sound of the waves as they tumbled onto the beach. The only thing between you and the ocean is a bicycle path. No road! They do not have a restaurant but they do have a hot breakfast that you can purchase and eat out on the patio if you choose... More

We travel to San Diego approximately every two years for meetings. Until now, we have always stayed near the convention centre, and didn't really think much of San Diego. We saw it as a mainly shopping destination with a marina and a crowded beach. This time our daughters wanted to try surfing, so we decided to stay at the Pacific... More

The main reason my wife, daughter, and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at Pacific Terrace Hotel was the exceptional staff. Ashley and Natalie at the front desk were always ready to answer questions and recommend fun excursions. The bellhops, Dan and Dylan, ensured our car was ready to go at a moments’ notice. They also provided us with... More

Located in Pacific Beach. Stayed 7 nights as part of a Vegas, San Diego package that we built. On the beach. Great sunsets, beautiful pool and Jacuzzi. Very clean, neat and comfortable. Hot breakfast available at cost on location every morning. All staff were helpful and friendly. Our room was excellent and we enjoyed entertaining friends from Del Mar. Great... More

Thank you to all the wonderful staff of the Pacific Terrace for an incredible stay. From check in with Diego (such a friendly guy), to the 1st notch valet services offered by Andres, I can't say enough about our possitive experience at this coastal gem. Try their happy hour for cocktails by the boardwalk, or get your food on at... More
