We had one night to spend in SoCal before attending a weekend wedding, so we wanted a special place to celebrate our anniversary. Having flown all the way from South Florida, we arrive at this hotel, excited to begin our journey in a "top" rated property. The "Junior Suite" room was booked well in advance (through Hotels.com, which of course...

Dear Guest, I wish you would have stayed with us to have the true Pacific Terrace experience, I know our staff would have made your anniversary very special. Although the view is the same as what you reserved, the Family Suite is a 2 room suite, it’s larger and it’s physically closer to the ocean than the Partial View room...

We stayed here for 2 nights in October and wish we could have stayed here for another few. Lovely pool/jacuzzi overlooking the ocean on Pacific Beach. The rooms were nice and big with a very nice en-suite. Front desk staff and cleaning staff couldn't have been friendlier and we will stay here from now on when visiting San Diego.

We stayed at the Pacific Terrace Hotel the first weekend in October (2012). We had stellar weather and the hotel was really wonderful. The location is perfect - right on the boardwalk, only about a 30 second walk to the beach. The pool and hotel grounds are well maintained. There are plenty of places to walk to while you are...

We stayed two nights in a partial ocean view room. The room itself was very nice, spacious and well appointed.

Our internet disruption around the property and guest kiosk was resolved by the telephone company and I apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused. We appreciate your...

Entirely impressive hotel. Stayed for four nights with a family of five. Staff are excellent - with attention to small detail. Rooms are very clean and well equipped. We stayed in a Junior Ocean View - which included two queens and a single, which was on the smaller side for a family of five, bit larger rooms are available. location...

Excellent staff, excellent view, excellent everything! After breaking up our trip between multiple hotels, I was happily relieved we saved the best for last.

Hello in Las Vegas! We are so happy you included us in your recent trip to San Diego. We do get some incredible sunsets throughout the year and I am glad you and your family were able to catch some. With so few suites and Jr. Suites we don’t have enough availability to offer them to the many travel agents...

I used to live in pacific beach so I'm pretty aware of all the hotels in the area. I love the pacific terrace and stay there every time we come into town. First off, get the ocean view room. It's worth listening to the ocean all night and the view is unbeatable. The pool has a view of the ocean...
