The Pacific Terrace Hotel is nothing short of outstanding! My husband and I stayed here for four days in late September, and were absolutely blown away by the incredible accommodations and service. When we arrived at the hotel after an exhausting day travelling by car from Los Angeles, we were greeted warmly by Kimberly, who promptly informed us that the garden view room we booked had been upgraded to a premier ocean view junior suite. What a delightful surprise! The suite was amazing, with beautiful new furnishings, a 42" plasma TV, marble bathroom, a huge and comfortable king size bed, and the most spectacular view of the pool, beach, and ocean.
The hotel served a wonderful complimentary continental breakfast each morning and wine between 4 and 5 each evening. Cookies were also available at the front desk and let me tell you, they were yummy!
The pool and jacuzzi area was small but perfect for the size of the hotel. We even managed to sneak in an evening swim all to ourselves, just after 9 (the pool closes at 10).
The beach was clean and fairly quiet, though that could be attributed to the time of year (being off-season).
The hotel also offered a turn-down service at night, with high quality chocolates left on the pillows.
The entire staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We have stayed at a number of hotels over the years, but the service at Pacific Terrace Hotel was incomparable - it was simply the best!
From the amazing accommodations to the choice amenities to the excellent staff, this hotel is in a class by itself. All the rave reviews are true! Book a stay here and I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
We will definitely stay here on our next visit to San Diego!
