This was probably the best hotel at which I have ever stayed. We had high expectations (given the $300+/night pricetag) and they were exceeded. People were lovely, location suberb. The only negative would be the rather mundane (though affordable)
breakfast buffet. No matter, much better options were always within walking distance.
Booked hotel as it was priced right, appeared to be near the ocean, and was near zoo and Del Mar raceway which were on the list for a short trip. This turned out to be an outstanding property and I would have loved to stay longer. Joe at the front
desk was super as well as every staff member we encountered~and an amazing thing happened~we arrived to be told the hotel a
ccidently overbooked~so rather than the room I reserved~we were given room 306 which was a gorgeous luxury suite with 2 verandahs open to the ocean ,a dining room, sunken tub bathroom, and a giant heavenly bed! Wow! What a treat and great service! Joe directed us to dinner on the ocean just down the way at Jdan~impecable service and food. What a joy to find lovely place!
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Pacific Terrace for 4 nights in June of 2013. We enjoyed the hotel and the location on Pacific Beach. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and our room was comfortable with a great ocean view. The best
feature of the Pacific Terrace is the location! We did not need a car, as we could walk to bars, restaurants, shopping, etc. We enjoyed swimming in the hotel pool, laying out at the beach, and walking down the boardwalk. Pacific Beach has a lot to offer! However, it should be noted that the hotel does not have a restaurant on-site; therefore, you need to eat out for meals. They do offer room-service (until 10pm) from nearby eateries; however, the selection is slightly limited. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a relaxing beach getaway, especially if you are comfortable eating out and exploring the surrounding area!
The rooms were great, the view was amazing for the price and the location was perfect!!
If you love Pacific Beach, CA... you want to stay here. Great restaurants in walking distance and the beach is right outside :)!
We booked the hotel for a our babymoon. We wanted something near the beach with a pool. The pool area looks out toward the ocean, it was perfect. You can easily get to the boardwalk from the pool area as well. The staff was unbelievably friendly,
they wanted to make sure we had all of our needs met. They have a breakfast buffet onsite ($14). We could have found breakfast for cheaper, but the convenience and selection worked for us. This was a great hotel for couples and families, highly recommend.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
A town car is the same price as a cab to/from the hotel. In fact, the town car was a few dollars cheaper.
