The staff's attention to detail and your every need is impeccible! The views were amazing and the property was lively enough for families and also quiet enough for a romantic getaway. The oceanview room is a must!

This hotel is surprising find in San Diego, tucked away, with great outdoor bar and restaurant right on the beach. It's part of a big chain but it doesn't have a corporate feel. Nice beach views and good service.

Beautiful location right on PB, very helpful staff. Free bikes to ride along the boardwalk - our teenagers even loved it! Had a mishap booking on an outside site & the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had outstanding rooms each and every night. Will return!

We chose this hotel for our mother-daughter getaway solely for the resort feel with a lovely pool area and the beautiful beach. The location can't be beat, and I loved that with the resort fee ($14 a night), we could use beach chairs, beach toys and boogie boards to our heart's content. We intended to use bicycles for the boardwalk,... More

So, we stayed at the Pacific Terrace for 2 nights in October. I was so excited to be able to book 2 nights in an ocean view room on Pacific Beach. Overall the hotel is awesome and I do highly recommend it as long as you really get a full ocean view room if you book one. We ended up... More

From the front desk staff to the pool staff, the customer service was outstanding! I can't say enough about this establishment . The location, the room, the atmosphere was a perfect blend of enjoyment.

This hotel is right on Pacific Beach, far enough north to be quiet, but close enough to the action that you can walk or ride one of the provided bicycles to one of the many restaurants. Everyone is very friendly, especially Felicia, who made sure that we got the room with the best view, pointed us at some good restaurants... More
