    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

    Excellent Hotel

    from

    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.

    Cock coach

    from

    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!

    from

    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!

    from

    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!

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    Fantastic Lcoation

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Luxury plus!

    from

    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!

    ... No traffic and no problems. We went through all of the formalities and were given our group number and seated in a special section with the gold card suite people (the penthouse and deluxe verandahs), the 4 and 5 star mariners (which we are) and the wheelchair people. By noon they came over and called the gold card and 4 & 5 star passengers and led us onto the ship. We did not even have to go through the pesky photo line. Our rooms were ready ...

    ... you were in a faraway land. Communal cushions provide a place for weary backpackers to lounge all day, and the bed situation entailed these partitioned white pristine beds just laying along a seemingly endless hallway. Very modern and intriguing layout for a hostel and a great place to stumble home after a few drinks out in Bangkok. Not too loud of an area, but not too quiet either.

They take place at Haad Rin, the southern most point of Koh Phangan located in the gulf of Thailand. It may be possible to meet up with the full moon worshipers in time. Koh Samui and Koh ...
