For our purposes, the location was perfect. Steps from the beach. Fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the waves! Lots of good casual dining nearby. If you are looking for 'upscale', may want to be closer to downtown San Diego. Loaner beach bikes from the hotel were a nice perk. Although busy, the boardwalk is a fun...

Room accommodations were stunning, as was the location. Great place for families. Unsurpassed friendly customer service from all employees - lobby staff, bellmen, housekeeping and food and beverage servers. Impeccable!

We had a great time in San Diego at the Pacific Terrace Hotel located right on the ocean. Rooms were very clean-we got a junior suite for my family of 4. We had a king size bed then a pull out couch for the kids. There was a full kitchen with eating utensils, small fridge and microwave. The hotel provided...

This gorgeous hotel is right on a boardwalk with easy beach access. Unobstructed views of the Pacific. Good parking. In a fun, hip restaurant and bar area. I stayed in a standard double queen room, it was large and spacious. Pool area is great and connects to dining room. Breakfast was great and guests receive coupons. Felt safe enough to...

We have stayed just one night...but I love this place. Unparalleled view & service! Ocean view suite balcony can't be beat. Sleep to sound of ocean at your door. Wonderful breakfast bar. Even cookies of the day. Helpful staff. Highly recommend and we'll return!

We are a family of 5 and loved the room. (2 queens and a sofabad with table, kitchen area w/microwave.) Cookies daily at 4:00. Hot tub was great and walking to everything a breeze. We road the bikes and enjoyed our B1G1 drink specials by the pool. We watched the sunset from our balcony. Great Hotel.

We had a partial view family suite on the third floor and it was sensational. We were a family of four, mom/dad/8 and 10 year old boys. There was plenty of room to spread out and be comfortable.

I had seen this hotel before and I was very curious about it. My wife and I spent three days there last week. Our view of the ocean was extraordinary, the pool and its facilities was very nice. Our room was impeccable. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
