Great Location and very friendly staff made our visit to San Diego fantastic. We loved the complimentary cookies and fruit waiting for us after our busy day on the town. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. We loved the pool and jacuzzi overlooking the ocean. Computers available on each floor as well as free wireless available in room. We...

This hotel was the perfect choice for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing! I am a neat freak and was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the hotel and the space for luggage in our room. There were 4 of us, and that can get a bit crazy if there is not enough space. If I could change one...

WOW!!!! What a wonderful place to stay! My husband and I were absolutely thrilled with our accomodations! The staff couldn't have been more helpful. We loved everything about it. Our only regret was having to leave! We could have stayed forever. The property is immaculate from top to bottom. Our room (Jr. Suite..full ocean view) was top of the line....

We stayed at the Pacific Terrace Jan. 15-21, 2011. Everyone of the staff was friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. I could name the ones that stood out, but they all did! The hotel was VERY clean. We saw someone cleaning somewhere anytime of the day. The room cleaning staff went beyond normal of...

What a fantastic place! Easily a new favorite for our family. The location is remarkable with access to the beach and the boardwalk and an amazing view. The palm trees and layout of the pool area add a ton to the atmosphere. The staff is friendly, responsive and personable - from the front desk to the maintenance guys diligently keeping...

We traveled as a family with a teen and a young child. Who would think that one hotel could provide a romanitic atmosphere for parents, a fun environment for a child, and chic and desireable location for a teen? But they have accomplished all of this in the Pacific Terrace. The ammenities in this hotel leave nothing to be desired....

We had a wonderful weekend at the hotel. Our room was very spacious with a beautiful view of the ocean. We sat on the balcony and watched the gorgeous sunset. We could see surfers and dolphins playing. Breakfast was limited and there is not a restaurant but many in the area.

We absolutely love the Pacific Terrace Hotel. The top reasons why: 1. Best sleep I've ever had in any hotel, ever. Beds/bedding are extremely comfortable, but leaving the balcony door open and falling asleep to the sound of waves is incredible. Sometimes when I'm having trouble sleeping at home I literally imagine I'm at the Pacific Terrace. Sounds cheesy, but...
