We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the Pacific Terrace Hotel. We upgraded to an ocean view room which was beautiful. The staff was friendly and they went above and beyond to help us with our car trouble. Definately recommend this hotel to anyone looking to have a romantic stay in San Diego or bringing the kids to play...

I've said it before, but I'll say it again. Sometimes location is everything ! The Pacific Terrace is a relatively small hotel where you can walk down the steps straight on to the beach and then start swimming in the Pacific. It really is quite something to go to sleep at night lulled by the gentle sound of the Pacific's...

The hotel is situated in Pacific Beach and is right on the beach. The staff are very friendly and efficient and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel has a great pool and hot tub with views across the ocean. The rooms are very comfortable and each afternoon cookies and coffee are provided free of charge.

Awesome hotel on the beach and boardwalk! We visited for 6 days in early December 2011. Very relaxing and awesome views from the room balcony. Close to many local restaurants with good food options. The boardwalk was amazing. The pier and Christmas tree was impressive during the holiday season. The room was very nice, updated and clean, and the staff...

I lived in San Diego for 11 years and moved up to Northern California a year ago. My boyfriend and I decided it was time to go back for a little mini vacation and to visit friends. I have to say that staying at Pacific Terrace MADE our trip. The place is in a perfect location in Pacific Beach and...

The views from the rooms of the Pacific sunsets are beyond compare. the rooms are always immaculate and spacious with extremely comfortable bedding. We love to sit on the balcony with a...

For years I have been wanting to take a vacation and stay in a hotel on the beach. Every time I came to tripadvisor I looked at San Diego hotels on the beach. Being on a minimal budget I only read descriptions and reviews and looked longingly at the photos of the Pacific Terrace Hotel. I finally booked rooms at...

We first found this hotel through Hotels Tonight, so we got a great rate plus a $25 credit through the app. We only picked this place because it was the best option available (out of 3) in the area we were looking (San Diego Beach Cities). This was the first week of November, 2012, so availability was high and demand...

Very nice rooms and good service. They do not have a restaurant but walking distance to everything so very good location. A nice getaway during the week if you can take advantage of the Buy 2 Get 1 Night free offer.

We originally booked a full ocean view room, but got upgraded to the presidential suite, it was amazing. The staff were all extremely friendly, great location, I couldn't ask for anything more. We plan to return as soon as possible.
