My daughter and I just spent three lovely days at this gorgeous hotel. It had been many years since we had been there and wanted to enjoy a stress-free beach getaway. It was as nice or nicer than I had remembered with a welcoming lobby, nice breakfast room, beautifully appointed rooms with wonderful beds (slept very well) and in a location that can't be beat. Everyone was very friendly and we didn't want to leave! We rode bikes, relaxed at the beach, dined at nearby restaurants and did a little shopping. An excellent stay - we will be back!

I booked this hotel based on trip advisor reviews and I was not disappointed. Honestly the rooms are not my style and the hotel is not modern or flash but what it lacks in "modern style" it makes up for with fantastic customer service and great location. We stayed in a ground floor partial ocean view room opening onto the pool area.. it was perfect for us as it was private with a huge patio area and the kids loved the easy access to the pool area. We could see the ocean through the pool area. The use of the bikes and sand toys was a bonus and the kids loved the complimentary cookies each day. We received a voucher book to be used during our stay and honestly it would have been nice for the inclusions to be given freely ie glass of wine on check in and photo memento when departing rather than having to rip out a voucher and take it to reception - because of this we didn't really utilise anything in the book. Every staff member we encountered was pleasant and helpful and the location made it easy to explore the area. Will definitely stay here again if we return to the area.

I Stayed last year in September (late review I know). We stayed there for our wedding and when we told the lady at the front desk, she upgraded us to the Master Suite for the first night and then the Presidential Suite the second night for free!!! They were so nice and even congratulated us when we got back from the courthouse! We had champagne waiting for us in our room, courtesy of the hotel staff along with their congratulations! How awesome is that?! Of course, the rooms were amazing and extremely clean! The view from both our rooms faced the ocean and was incredible! It was right on the boardwalk and was close to a lot of restaurants within walking distance. The staff was very friendly and I would absolutely stay there again!

This hotel is right on the beach. Steps away from staircase to beach. Request an ocean view on 3rd floor. Rooms are beautifully decorated in Tommy Bahama style beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys and bikes are all included. Bathrooms are a bit dated. Expected nicer compared to the style of the room. Valet parking for $25 a day. Service was outstanding. Rachel at front desk was wonderful and super friendly. Provide late checkout for a fee. I booked that at soon as we arrived. There was some confusion with that. Needed to double check. Then room key didn't work. Just double check everything. Happy hour poolside everyday from 4 to 5. Perfectly located. Definitely expensive but worth it.

Room Tip: Ocean view on 3rd floor. I wouldn't want one overlooking pool with ocean view. Get one on the en...

I have three kids under the age of 15, the beach access and the hotels amenities beats them all. Down in the lobby waiting for you are bicycles, or beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys & umbrellas. Our room was great, the pool was very clean and the hotel staff was very friendly. If you needed anything, the awesome concierge Angela took care of it. Going back in September.

Visited hotel on accident while walking from Amore's Pizzeria, walked in and thought it would be funny to see the price, we thought we couldn't afford it, we were going to stay at hotel circle that night... Eric greeted us and did a great professional job showing us two rooms and their amazing views without us committing to stay, explained their service, helped us choose where to eat and it was/is luxury without being too stuffy, we are Midwest folks. Short of it we canceled our other hotels and are staying 6 nights. I am thankful I walked in to see the price, if it cost more than it does it would be worth it, La Jolla in 12 minutes, SeaWorld in 4, Old Town in 7 and the views and easy parking and the views

We stayed at the Pacific Terrace Hotel for the fourth of July 2014. The staff was very friendly and the room had an ocean view that was magnificent. The food was great and never waited long for service. We accidently left a pair of boots behind and they were kind enough to mail them to us, free of charge. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely return to this hotel in the future.
