We stayed at Pacific Terrace during Spring break with our two children. The hotel has a relaxed beachy feeling and is much nicer than the outside would indicate. We loved the decor and the view from our balcony was lovely. My favorite thing was sitting each evening on the balcony with a glass of wine, listening to the ocean, feeling the breeze and seeing the outline of the palm trees and tiki torches against the sky. Our room was on the second floor just above the pool area. Even though there were a lot of families at the hotel, the pool was never crowded or noisy. The beach is beautiful here. We had just driven down from Santa Monica where the beaches were crowded and dirty. We really enjoyed walking on the promenade each morning and evening and the hotel supplied us with bikes too. The hotel breakfast was good and the kids loved the cookies each evening. The only downside to our visit was the house keeping service. Our room was skipped 3 out of the 4 days we were there- even after we let the front desk know- it still didn't get done. We would have to call down in the evening after being out all day to get fresh towels and coffee. One time while we were out to dinner someone put some clean towels on our vanity but left all the dirty towels on the floor and the dirty water glasses on the table. The front desk seemed unconcerned. In addition, one evening when my son got out of bed to use the bathroom a piece of the door frame fell off the wall and almost hit him in the head. Needless to say it startled all of us awake. We told the front desk the next morning and asked them to fix this and check to see if the rest of the door frame was secure- upon our return to the hotel that evening it was still laying on the floor and not fixed until the following day after repeated requests. The hotel is convenient to the beach and to Seaworld and I am glad we tried a stay at Pacific Beach. However, having traveled to San Diego several times, I feel there are other places I might consider for our next trip.
