We recently stayed here for one night and left with mixed feelings. We made a reservation for an oceanfront room . But they called me on the day of check in and told me there is a problem with reservation and they changed our room to partial ocean view. They waived the resort fee and the parking fee in return....

My wife and I stayed at Pacific Terrace in mid-December (my first, her second visit to hotel). We had an ocean view room, above the pool/hot tub and could look out our sliding door and see/hear waves coming in. The room is very spacious, has a small fridge, ample sitting space. Only complaint is the bathroom is much smaller than...

Just spent two nights here in a "Full Ocean View Junior Suite." More on that later. First the positives. The location is great. Pacific Beach is a fun area and the hotel's location at the north end of the beach is perfect. The staff are also outstanding. Super friendly and helpful. The negatives go to overall value and some dubious...

Stayed here for 3 nights last week, just an overall excellent hotel, great location and views, nice touches like welcome drinks, fresh baked cookies daily, etc. Beautiful room and very luxurious beds, very quiet with great sound proofing. Stunning ocean views, nice pool, and really appreciated Dan, the concierge, kindly making dinner reservations for us prior to arrival. Not cheap...

Pavific Terrace is amazing. You are do flies to the ocean and the large deck facing the ocean is a great way to spend time listening to the waves. The staff is a perfect combination of friendly and professional. We are planning another trip for 2018.

We will definitely come back to San Diego and definitely to this hotel! It is by far the nicest on the beach and offers the most. I had booked a stay at a well reviewed hotel further south and I am so glad I switched to this one. I am picky about cleanliness and beds/linens and this hotel did not...

Pacific Terrace had a very courteous staff, very clean hotel with spacious rooms and a wonderful view of the ocean. The grounds were well-kept and it is right on the beach. My daughter walked to the San Diego Surf School and came back from the cold ocean into the heated pool. Highly recommend.

So happy we chose to stay at the Pacific Terrace Hotel. The location can't be beat. We enjoyed a 5 day family vacation with our 14 yr old and 20 yr old. The hotel is clean, well appointed and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed long walks along the beach and beautiful sunsets. Walking distance to great...
