An Experience. The Weekend was Great! I stayed in two rooms. First Room 303 which was a two Queen Bed room and had an exceptional Bathroom Layout. Everything in the room was easy to use and hassle free. We decided to spend another night and the second room was an executive (King) Suite-Room 321! The Bathroom wasn't as impressive as...

My daughter and I recently visited San Diego and stayed at Pacific Terrace hotel. We had an ocean view room which was nicely decorated, clean, and most importantly, comfortable beds. Our view was full of energy with people on the boardwalk walking, biking, running, and rollerblading. There were several surfers that also provide great entertainment if that is something you...

We had a nice visit in late February and it was family friendly. Even on a rainy day, they had suggested activities and umbrellas at the ready. The amenities are great and worth the resort fee and price. Only complaint was thin walls, so we heard our neighbors and housekeeping slam the door every morning as well as their crying...

The experience from beginning to end was perfect. The hotel staff were all very professional and willing to assist. The view from the hotel room was amazing, perfect for sipping wine and watching the sun set. The room was clean and I slept like a baby in the bed. Will definitely rebook the next time I am in SD.
