TravelPod Member ReviewsPacific Terrace Hotel San Diego
If you are looking for the best hotel to stay at during your visit to San Diego, Pacific Terrace Hotel is it! The staff is friendly and amazing. The rooms and all facilities are very clean. The amenities are numerous. The breakfast buffet is reasonable and very tasty. The view of the ocean and Crystal Pier can't be beat, plus you have parking under the hotel so you don't have to worry about trying to find a place to park. This hotel is right on the boardwalk. Listening to the ocean breezes at night are a great way to fall asleep. If you don't stay here, you will be missing a golden opportunity!

Historical Traveler Reviews Pacific Terrace Hotel San Diego
I loved this place. I loved the rooms, the staff and all the little extras. There were robes in our rooms and a great mini bar. Rooms were clean, and the breakfasts and wine hours were very good. What a great deal you get for such a minimal price. We will absolutely stay there again. You will not be disappointed.
It was the most horrible hotel that i have ever stayed in. Iv'e stayed at nicer motel 6's. Their were cock roaches all over our room, when we asked if we could get a new room they said that it would be fine and not to worry about it. For your own saftey i would advise you not to stay here.
Wow, what a suprise!
What a place. Clean, Clean, Clean. The hotel has great rooms and rates. Complimentary wine tasting hour daily and a wonderful continental breakfast. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!
A Wonderful Place!
Pacific Terrace is a classy hotel without being snobby. We always found a friendly face at the front desk and they were very accommodating. We stayed for two nights and wished we had booked it for the rest of our stay in San Diego.
I want to go back now!
Can hardly wait to return! Everyone here was friendly, sincere and customer service oriented! Our room was spacious, quiet and had a great view! Mini Bar AND a refrigerator! Loved the pool with the glass wind breaks---great view and not too cool! My daughter was always sneaking off to the lobby to raid the cookie plate! Can hardly wait to return to the area and think this is the only hotel in the area I would consider. Most around didn't even have a pool! Of the 5 hotels we stayed in at Spring Break this was the BEST!!!
The best hotel ive ever stayed at!
the Pacific Terrace hotel was one of the nicest hotels that ive ever stayed at. we had a Ocean View Delux Suite, which was a picture perfect view. just falling asleep to the sound of the waves was an awesome experience. another plus, was that the service was great. all the employees were incredibly nice and caring. if your looking for a great vacation choose this hotel!!
Sounds of the Ocean
Superb views from the terrace of our room.Lying in bed listening to the rhythmic sounds of the Ocean.Friendly helpful staff. A lovely spot for vacation, well worth the round trip of 10000 miles!
Location, Location, Location. Pacific Terrace is nestled in a wonderful neighborhood...easy walking or bikeride to interesting shops, fabulous food and watching the surfers/sunset. Great place to relax after taking in the sights/touring SD. Family-friendly, large rooms and diverse breakfast.
More like your own appartment than hotel
Very good. But more like an appartment than a hotel. Not a full service hotel, few hotel facilities, But excellent sized, clean, well maintained rooms (we had junior suite). There is not even a bar. The flip side is that it is much cheaper of course to go to the local store, get a six pack (or more) for the fridge, and serve yourself. There is a very limited poolside service during the day - soft drinks, ice creams, chips, but no meals. Reasonable buffet breakfast - nothing hot (apart from using the toaster), but a good spread. Very informal. People coming down to get their breakfast still in their dressing gowns. They are quite happy for you to fill up your plates and take it back to your room and provide Styrofoam cups and plates for this. Location is nice to be right on beach (though there is 20ft cliff with steps), but general area is a bit downmarket compared to hotel (and price!). However, there are surprisingly very few beach front hotels in SD.
Pacific Terrace is right on the ocean, with a board walk that extends a long distance north and south. The pool is luxurious and just the right size and temperature. The rooms are enormous suites with all the amenities. I picked this accommodation from a small picture in a AAA travel guide. It was more than we ever expected, and certainly worth a little extra money!

Started the day with a healthy poached egg and rye toast breakfast at Denny's - ended it with a tequila and beer-fest in the old town area of San Diego! Such is our pathetic willpower but hey, we're only here once (as far as we know!). Really, really (did I mention really?) impressed by this city - the old town is fantastic and a must see for anyone visiting. Mexican restaurants in abundance and a great vibe (I'm starting to sound ...
... many planes on the ship including the top gun plane and a FA 18 bomber jet. We went up into the bridge and sat in many planes. We then went on a cruise of the San Diego harbour. Highlights here included seeing the navy SEALS doing some exercises; some actual seals, lots of navy bases and ships while enjoying the beautiful view. That night we found yet more Mexican food at a different restaurant, again incredible food before going to the baseball. Unlike ...
... about $250 so it was a right bargain. Hopefully I didn;t get Sophie in trouble as I persuaded her to buy a handbag which she liked in Nine West. It was really pretty and I said to her, if you don;t buy it now you will only regret it. When you go back another time it won't be there and you will kick yourself for not buying it. Sorry Pat!!!!

After dinner only a few of us went out to go to a couple of bars.First bar was just across the road and it had so many different beers on draws. (at least 20) Awesome!! I didnt had a beer, i had a cocktail with Whisky, Vodka,.. Cant remember really what else was in there. I know it was very strong but tasted good and was served in a great cup. Chris had the same drink as me and liked ...
