This was my second stay at Pacific Terrace and it did not disappoint. This stay was possible because I won their recent photo contest and won a 2 night free stay. The last time we came we stayed a full week. Both trips were fun, relaxing, and memorable! The location of Pacific Terrace is just perfect. The beach views from our balcony are amazing. There are so many great restaurants and shops within walking distance. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. This is my favorite hotel in San Diego!

Hotel's Favourite
I recently spent 4 days at the Pacific Terrace while visiting my daughter in San Diego. While the hotel looked nice on the website, it was even more beautiful in person. The location on the beach could not be beat. I arrived at night and when i woke up in the morning and looked out the sliding doors to the patio, my view was of the Pacific and many, many surfers. The rooms were spacious, clean, and had a nice refrigerator. The pool and hot tub were beautiful and surrounded by very comfortable lounge chairs. One day while lounging by the pool i was lucky enough to see a whale spout 3 times while passing by just beyond the surfers. What stood out even more than the perfect location and beautiful hotel were the staff. From the moment we checked in, to Halley serving drinks at the pool, to the woman who set me up with the beach cruiser bike, to the helpful staff who accepted and stored the cupcakes i had delivered for my daughters birthday, I could not asked for a friendlier or more helpful staff. It really gave the hotel a cozy, homey feeling. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the San Diego area and look forward to returning this summer. Thanks for everything Pacific Terrace.

Hotel and staff are excellent. We arrived early but the hotel was able to get us into an upgraded room. The view from the room is amazing. The location is perfect as well with restaurants and shops all within walking distance. Took two young kids and they had a blast.

Friendly staff and location, the amenities are perfect! We had a partial view of the ocean but it really was a great view, especially of the sunset and surfers! Pretty close to the airport, 10 minutes or so, would stay here again!
