In 2007, a visit to the West Coast proved glorious. Pacific Terrace hotel, found on trip advisor, was all it was reviewed to be. The rooms are cozy and clean, although getting slightly in need for a rework, the staff is warm and helpful (especially when I requested needing the down pillows and comforters removed from my room--- sniffle sneeze achoo) Additionally, the pool area is welcoming along with a hot tub that calls your name. It is surrounded by clear 'fencing' so you can enjoy the ocean day or evening as you soothe yourself in water. At night, fire torches are light to create a soft ambiance. The breakfast is OK, not great, not terrible. GABRIELLE treated my 2.5 year old son like royalty when he was craving cookies! Like a king I tell you! She was the kindest staff member I would say!
A very good rating comes because we made a special request on the rate due to this 2012 trip for a price adjustment as we were there due to the death of my brother-in-law. Five years prior this is where we all stayed, my brother-in-law, sister-in-law, husband, and I. We loved the stay then and when we had to unexpectedly and so sadly had to return for his funeral, we decided to stay at PTH for a couple days and have my sister-in-law come over with to reminisce. The manager at the time lacked all possible compassion, firstly, and secondly, did not really support a price reduction. That I felt was immature and lacked some basic human connection.
I wouldn't stay here again, only because I'm older- this hotel caters very much to a younger crowd I would say. Pacific Beach itself is full of college students. Being a mother opened my eyes to things I wouldn't seek again from this AREA not necessarily this Hotel.
