I did a LOT of "online investigating" before selecting the Pacific Terrace Hotel for our 25th wedding anniversary, and I can't say enough about it. We chose it primarily for its location (which - literally - could not be better) but would go back again and again for the service and amenities. This is not a "chain hotel" so it really feels like the staff is personally invested in the property. EVERYONE, from the Front Desk Staff, to our room attendant, to the serving staff by the pool and hottub, to the bellman was pleasant, professional and congenial. And the "resort fee" was a bargain! $18 per day for the pool, hottub, workout room, chairs (AND umbrellas!) for the beach, and even unlimited use of very well-maintained beach cruiser bicycles (we didn't even need to rent a car!) Seriously, THANK YOU Pacific Terrace Hotel! We WILL be back!

LOVED the complimentary cookies! GREAT room, close to everything, super friendly staff.

Location is perfect, directly on pacific beach pay more for a balcony ocean room its defintley worth it. Hotel provides beach towels, chairs, umbrellas. The staff here was SO friendly and and helpful, everytime you walkback into the hotel or out of they greet you and acknowledge you ☺️. The bar staff at the pool area was just as freindly & helpful! Great vacation spot!!

Great place, beautiful views, fire pits in the evening, comfortable beds! Very pleased and within walking distance to all.

nice location.good view. a little pricy though. parking is not free.

They offer many extras like free lemonade and ice tea during the day. The room was very plush and large. Location is ideal

It is overrated, nothing exceptional, it was not what I expected

excellent location. Free bike rentals. Free sand toys and chairs
