We had a great time, but a little more than I usually would spend for a four night outing.

I just got back from a one night stay. I have NEVER been so impressed by the service and staff at any hotel, ever. (Not even the Hotel Del Coronado in SD, which has NOTHING on this hotel except being famous and overpriced). Everyone was so extremely helpful without being insincere. They seem as if they enjoy their jobs:) (Must...

Having never been to San Diego before we wanted to experience the Pacific Beach atmosphere but having spent the first part of our travels in basic accommodation we also wanted some luxury. We chose the Pacific Terrace Hotel for both its luxury and its position and it didn't let us down. When we arrived the check-in was handled swiftly and...

We stayed for three nights, and our family had an excellent and comfortable stay in a full ocean view room (318, I think). Check in was efficient and extremely friendly; we seemed to be greeted with genuine warmth. We loved the room with its wonderful view (no sunset view from our room as it faced the pier - not an...

This hotel is lovely for a couple's getaway. We stayed in a room overlooking the beach on the second floor. The property was very clean and well maintained. The secure, underground parking was superb. The hotel staff were concientious and efficient. The heated pool was very nice. My only concern was the beach culture from Ocean Beach to Mission Beach...

We stayed at Pacific Terrace 2 years ago and it was a great memory so we went back this July and stayed 5 nights. We were so thankful that we even got the same exact room we had 2 years ago,,,a King Jr Suite. We are a family of 4 that includes twin 9 year olds. I felt that the...

We stayed for our second time at this very nice hotel in July. While we will come back again, I found the staff to be just a bit more rushed and a bit more over worked in all areas, leading to some confusion. The rooms were not quite as spotless as they had been, and a couple of items in...

I stayed here with my girlfriend during mid-June 2011. We stayed in an ocean view room and had a really great time. I saw on their website that you can come early and use the pool, so we did. The guy at the front desk was so nice and helpful that he actually found us a room and let us...

A clean hotel is the number one thing I look for, so I was happy here. Housekeeping did a great job. A few times, we left in the morning and stopped back at the room fairly early, like 12:30, and the room would already have been cleaned. I stayed in a partial ocean view room for 6 nights at $420...
