The Pacific Terrace is an out of this world hotel with an ideal location in one of the best cities for vacationing ever!. It is small enough to be inviting and cozy, but comes with the service of a larger hotel. The accommodations are superb, magically making you feel like you’re retreating in the tropics; with plantation shutters you’ll want... More

I had to write a review and tell everyone to stay at the Pacific Terrace Hotel. The most amazing place I have ever stayed. The room was immaculate, large and provided more than I needed. The view was spectacular on the beach and at night from the heated jacuzzi the hotel light up like a romantic dream. I am very... More

Nice time. Over-delivered on expectations. Walked to Tower 23 for excellent dinner. Rooms rennovated and up-to-date. Staff went out of their way to please. Hot breakfast was reasonably priced and the food was very good. For those that want to "Stay Classy" in San Diego...

If you have a toddler, this is the place to go. We just stayed for nine nights and had a ball. 1. Its family-oriented -- quiet overall (you aren't competing with drunken boppys) and private enough that when your kiddo cries you don't feel like you are waking the whole place. 2. Close to everything (restaurants, pharmacy, grocery store all... More

We stayed 3 nights and the Pacific Terrace far exceeded our expectations. We upgraded to a junior suite so we could have 1 King bed, so I would suggest that to couples. The staff are exceptional in all areas, this is s "hidden gem" on Pacific Beach. We watched surfers from our private balcony. There are great shopping opportunities and... More

Well appointed rooms. Great service. Kids loved daily turn-out service with fancy chocolates (milk & dark) in a cute cloth bag. Daily operation/service gave the feel of upscale hotel with daily-printed note in the room with photos and name of front desk folks working that day/evening and tomorrow's weather forecast. Even the housekeeping person left a personal card. Very comfortable... More

I brought a group to the Pacific Terrace in December, 2007, knowing only what I learned from tripadvisor. Our stay could not have been better, from the excellent group sales manager, to the front desk staff, to the amazing accomodations and view. It was perfect in every way. I will, and have, recommended to everyone I know.

We wanted to stay at a nice place where we could sit and look at the ocean, and walk to as many seafood restaurants as possible, and the Pacific Terrace was perfect for that. There are dozens of restaurants and stores within easy walking distance; we didn't even rent a car. The property and the rooms were even nicer than... More

The room overlooked the coast...service was excellent. Every employee, from my original call to make reservations through checkout, was friendly, cheerful, and helpful. The room was clean and well decorated. Rarely have I seen a hotel staff work so diligently to make the stay pleasant. The rate was excellent for a hotel of this quality. I highly recommend the Pacific... More

My mom, living in the desert loved our California beaches but we never made it to Pacific Beach. Sadly, because of failing health resulting from degenerative spine problems, we had to cancel several attempts to go this past year. She passed away in mid August. In memory of our mom, my sister, her husband and I, thought it would be... More
