Stayed here last week in a family suite. Wow, the room is huge! This time was even better than our 1st visit. Customer service was wonderful! Laura at the front desk went over and above to accommodate our stay. Dan was also very knowledgeable about the Gaslamp area and recommended a terrific restaurant. Sunsets here are unbelievable. I love having... More

My second visit to this hotel. Staff is always very friendly and ensured we had a great stay. Room 313 is the St Croix suite. Large balcony room on the ocean with a view while laying in bed. Nice pool and free bikes are available. Thanks Ben for dinner and breakfast recommendations. Highly recommend this for a fun getaway!

I can not say enough positive comments about this hotel!! Starting with the STAFF, honestly they ALL could not have been more genuinely friendly and helpful...No matter what you asked for they went out of their way to make it happen...whether it was a request for a drip coffee maker instead of the Kuerig in the room, or asking for...

My husband and I came to the Pacific Terrace Hotel this week for our honeymoon. Initially we had a room without a view but thanks to Laura Rodriquez we got to stay in the Master suite our first night. This is the most beautiful room we've ever stayed in! We are so grateful and we wanted to thank Laura for... More

Our first impressions of this property were mostly positive. A helpful and friendly staff, nicely decorated lobby and a parking garage located under the hotel. We stayed in a Jr suite which was very large and decorated in a kitschy fun style, though the suite shows it's age and is overdue for a refresh. Our first day there we arrived... More

Staff from front desk to housekeeping were welcoming and friendly. Our room was spacious with an exceptional view of the ocean from our patio. Housekeeping was efficient and thorough. The area is a little remote, but the hotel is right off the beach and there are some good eating places within walking distance.

Had no idea where to stay, this place was great! Service was exceptional! Would recommend. Going to go back as soon as possible. Be sure to use the free coupons they give you at checkin. Free wine, breakfast discount, pool drinks, etc.

This was our second stay and our anniversary trip at the Pacific Terrace Hotel and the staff made sure it was unforgettable. They went above and beyond, especially Kyla who went above and beyond to make our stay perfect! The staff across the board is top notch! I have stayed at many top notch hotels and their service and commitment... More

We spent a couple of nights in the terrace hotel. It was just perfect. Thats all I can say. A special thank to the staff at the front desk for letting us change the room. The room in the back at the north end is really not acceptable. On one side you got the ice machine and at the other... More
