The Pacific Terrace Hotel is a beautiful hotel in a great location. Only stayed two nights but the say was very enjoyable. The only thing I wish with the hotel was my room was an even better view of the ocean. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The view of the ocean was good, but because we were a...

We stayed here in January for a couple of nights before ending our Californian holiday & heading back to London. It's a perfect location & the rooms are spacious & comfortable with fantastic views. Fabulous for sunsets from your balcony & watching the early morning surfers get started. We've stayed here before & that time I remember watching the pelicans...

Great place if you are staying in San Diego.. we weren't planning on staying here. It was a last minute decision that I do not regret! Couldn't of worked out better for us. Our original hotel somehow double booked and we found out we didn't have a reservation that was actually confirmed! Pacific Terrace was a great location and perfect...

Stayed here just one night in January, split the middle up on a 8 night Palm Springs stay to see the beach and get away from the desert, we're glad we did!! We booked an Oceanfront room, called ahead and got a discount because it was a Wednesday night stay, the sales person was very nice and helpful. Give it...

What a find! Directly on the beach, and a small and friendly hotel with a pool, hot tub, parking and great balconies. Apprehensive about booking to stay here - we were more than pleased at this hotel's level of service, comfort and location. This part of San Diego is for beach and surf lovers...it is breezy, fresh and perfect for...

We stayed here sight unseen after bailing on a very disappointing hotel, and were a bit nervous. We shouldn't have been. Everything was wonderful. We were given a very fair rate to help defray the cost of switching hotels mid-trip, our room was spectacular (with a wonderful ocean view), and the service couldn't have been better. Jut blocks from great...

From the moment you check in to the moment you check out, the service and accommodations are first class. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable; the bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've slept in. We stayed in the junior suite with a king bed and the room was spacious...

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...

Great spot overlooking Pacific Beach. Easy access to lots of restaurants, via a walk on the beach or along the paved strand immediately adjacent to the hotel. Very nice and accommodating staff. Quiet and warmly furnished rooms. Parking expensive but plenty of spots can be found on the streets near the hotel. Nice pool area. Downtown San Diego and the...
