First realize that this is a kind of "grungy" part of the San Diego coastline...certainly not upscale La Jolla. If you want to be right on the ocean, have great service, and a nice clean room, at a reasonable price, this is the spot. Great access to La Jolla and downtown San Diego. I was in San Diego on business...

Dear TonyV; Thank you for taking the time to review your stay here at the Pacific Terrace Hotel. We are very glad that you enjoyed our oceanfront location, great service and accommodations. While we are located in the "beachy" area of San Diego, very much like most boardwalks on the coast, we are sorry to hear it was not to...

As always the stay was perfect. The staff are why we keep coming back. From Kyla who always books the perfect stay to Gered and Ryan who were awesome with getting our surfboard out each day. You have a perfect location and great rooms BUT the staff are why we keep returning.

This hotel is beautiful and rooms are large (we stayed in a Jr. Suite) clean and nice. Upscale without being pretentious. Location on the beach is great. It is a bit north of the louder more crowded Pacific Beach area. Rooms are large, beds very comfortable, and views could not be any better. Staff was AMAZING! All were friendly and...

Great staff and rooms are nice. Bit dated but amenities make up for it. Walking distance to many restaurants. Breakfast was great and free drinks a plus. Would come back here again. A little off the beaten path but nice to get away from big city.

We knew from the minute we stepped into the lobby that we had chosen the right hotel. The genuine friendliness of the staff was very much recognized and appreciated (high praise coming from a Midwesterner). The room and view were amazing. Service was priceless.
