I was having some difficulty deciding where to stay in San Diego for our family trip. I wanted to make sure that we were right on the beach and begin our search by looking at condominiums/houses to rent. However since we were only going to be there for three nights, it was difficult to find a location to rent. Thus,... More

My husband and I had never been to SD. We had stayed a few nights in Rancho Bernardo, La Jolla, Del Mar- before coming to Pacific Beach to stay at Pacific Terrance for two nights. After spending time at the other beaches, PB seemed dirty and out dated. However, Pacific Terrance was very accommodating providing us with a full ocean... More

We stayed for our Anniversary on July 11th-12th and it was the best Hotel experience we have ever had in San Diego!!!! When we arrived we were put in a room right over the pool area but knew that area was going to be too noisy. The front desk staff promptly & graciously honored our request to move. The service...

Wow! From the time we got here to the time we left the staff and hotel made this such a great experience. We were here in summer of 2013 and they upgraded me and my family to a Presidential suite after we had walked into our room with water flooding from bathroom into hall and we called front desk and...

Stayed here on June 19 & 20 and it was such a great stay. Room was nice enough for a non chain hotel and was very roomy, great pool/ocean view from our room. Room service is a little slow took over an hour to get food one night but that's not a big deal. The pool area is very nice... More

This Hotel was such an amazing choice for our family!!!! You can view and see the ocean from the pool. The location was amazing as well! The house keeping staff exceptional!!!! We really enjoyed being in our room but also our little patio was so comfortable as well. The one thing I will say, is the pool water does fade... More

Our stay at Pacific Terrace was nothing less than perfect. The room was extremely clean. It is one of the few hotels in which I've stayed that I didn't feel the need to reclean! Every night, the staff would create little animals with the towels. My kids loved this as well as the turn down service, unlimited beach toys, cookies,... More

This is our second stay at Pacific Terrace. Decision to stay first time based on all the fantastic reviews. It didn't disappoint! The second stay was every bit as fabulous at the first. Pacific Terrace will continue to be our PB/San Diego base location. Cannot say enough about the service provided here. Marty Walters is the BEST ambassador the hotel... More
