We had a beautiful room off the pool with a view of the ocean. The rooms were gorgeous and we were upgraded to a suite. The room was spacious and the beds were incredibly comfortable! We were able to walk to dinner two nights in a row. Also, the breakfast in the morning is VERY good and very convenient!

We stayed for 5 nights and were very happy. The welcome is warm and friendly and this experience with all staff continued throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble.

Hello in England! Thanks for staying with us while in San Diego. You have certainly pointed out our greatest asset, our staff. They really enjoy interacting with their guests. Good news- we will be making changes to the breakfast menu in the next few months and the flies are on the move with the recent weather changes. We hope you...

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.
