Our recent stay at the Pacific Terrace was fabulous. We stayed in a family suite (The Antigua). The view from our patio was not great but the view from the other first floor patios really isn't much better. Still, we loved having a living room. If you want a view go for the upper floors. We found the staff extremely... More

Spacious and clean rooms with huge balconies and unbeatable views. Only a few steps to surfing and swimming and only a few more to your choice of restaurants. Complimentary bikes were a nice touch for sight seeing down the boardwalk and access to other beaches. Breakfast in the hotel was reasonably priced and convenient and our teens devoured the fresh...

Our family had a delightful three-day stay at the Pacific Terrace last week (July 2012). The hotel is very well kept, and ideally located if beaches are your thing -minutes from La Jolla and downtown SD. Check-in was easy, and our room was exactly what we had reserved. Had a partial ocean view by the pool. Staff was super friendly,... More

We have tons of Marriott points and could stay in San Diego for free, but we choose to return and pay to stay at the Pacific Terrace! Park you car and walk to to the beach, restaurants, shops and more. Our very favorite place to stay in San Diego - the service is top notch! Wont go anywhere else! Jackson... More

When we were planning our trip back out west and on the coast, I wanted to go to the beach. Never before had we been to San Diego and someone had mentioned the beaches there. Well, we searched for beaches and this is what we find. We did not realize that the harbor is where it is all at. The... More

This hotel was exactly what we had expected when walking upon this place. Nice pool, great view, and very reasonable prices. The manager Enrico was very polite along with all the other staff at this hotel. We will definitely be coming back at his hotel.

Just returned from a great week in San Diego and the first three days of our trip were spent at the Pacific Terrace Hotel in Pacific Beach. The accommodations were wonderful - we had room 117 - a junior suite with a patio facing the pool area and the ocean. The room was very nicely decorated and I just loved... More

This was my first time for staying at a hotel on PB. I have been to San Diego many times, but always stayed at Marriott. Read alot of reviews before deciding on Pacific Terrace and can only tell you it was one of the best surprises I've had in a long time. All of the staff were friendly, always smiled,... More

The Pacific Terrace was the last stop of our vacation, and it was a standout. Note that our perspective is gleaned from stays at other highly-rated SoCal properties, such as the St. Regis and Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel. Here's a quick review: First Impressions and Rooms: When you pull up to the hotel, you'll probably get a sinking feeling that... More
