Located at the far north end of Pacific Beach's oceanfront boardwalk, our central San Diego hotel provides easy access to exceptional surfing, sailing, fishing and cycling.

We had a great time with our two kids at this hotel over midwinter break. The big thing that I can say is… Location, location, location! It is right on the beach. Free bike rentals made it so much fun. Free beach toys and beach chairs were awesome. Breakfast was OK… Not amazing.

Such a wonderful place to stay. My go to beach front place in San Diego. The rooms are elegant and comfortable. A glass of wine by the pool, a stroll on the beach. There are not many places in San Diego right on the beach like this.

Warm, comfortable and inviting!
Nice touch!
Our terrace was right by the road, very busy with cars and pedestrians who couldn't resist looking into our room whenever the blinds were open.

The Ocean View Room at the Pacific Terrace Hotel
We have kids bikes and also kids bikes with training wheels. We also have a few bike helmets for kids. Bike use is included in our resort fee and we have a wonderful boardwalk in front of the hotel in which to ride!

The one we stayed in did have a partial ocean view that we could easily see from the deck. While we were there, a van was parked on the street that a man was living in but he was very quiet. I hope this information got to you in time.

"Partial Ocean View room was plenty of a view and less expensive."
"ocean view rooms are more expensive but worth it"
"At these prices, you can do better than Pacific Beach. Consider La Jolla instead."
"Definitely get the ocean view!"
"Book a full ocean view room--it is well worth the extra cost."
