5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2006

Husband and I reserved for three nights from the internet. We had a wonderful view of the ocean from second floor. There were several amenities that we didn't expect. Bountiful free breakfasts, bath robes furnished, wonderful bedding, free wine hour each afternoon, turn down service, free cookies and super friendly staff. Glass doors over the tub did leak onto bath... More

Our family just returned from a 3-night stay. There were three of us (myself, my husband, and our 13-year-old daughter). We booked a premium oceanview room for $195/night. We had an awesome view from the second floor balcony of the pool, ocean, sunsets, and surfers. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the deluxe continental breakfast...

My only complaint was the lack of bar and restaurant with this hotel, the breakfast room was just ok however the location was fantastic,... More

The first room we were in was a Jr. Suite which we were told was good for a family of 4. NO WAY! So, we immediately upgraded to a Family Suite. It was on the 1st floor, a little loud on Friday & Saturday nights but ok. There was a leak somewhere in the bathroom near the shower that got... More

Our family of four, including boys ages 10 and 12, just returned from a one week stay at the Pacific Terrace. We stayed at this hotel solely based on the other Trip Advisor favorable reviews and were not disappointed! We booked a "standard room" through our travel agent and were more than pleased with the partial ocean view we had... More

We stayed in San Diego for the first time at the Pacific Terrace Hotel and loved it. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The bath and beds were the best, and the location and layout could not be beat. The fresh cool January air in the open hallways was a far cry from the suffy closed in hallways of... More

First, it is the best hotel on Pacific Beach and the water front location can't be beat. We have stayed here many times over the years and it's always consistant. We noticed during this stay that the rooms are looking a little shabby...torn wallpaper, holes in the walls (poor patch job) and carpet coming up int the corners. Hopefully, it... More

Stayed at the Pacific Terrace Hotel 12/21 - 12/24/2005. Had a deluxe Ocean View room on the 3rd floor. We loved it. The breakfast was perfect. The close proximity to the beach was wonderful. Lots of surf activity while we were there. The construction was not a big deal. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent location. We parked... More

Our deluxe Ocean view was just that. Deluxe. The view was worth every dollar I spent for that room. The room was spacious and the tiled bathroom with glass doors was a nice touch. They served a great breakfast outside by the pool which had a selection that seemed to go on forever. After breakfast we took a walk on... More
