The friendliest staff!Posted Oct 26, 2014
Pros: The location is perfect, right on Pacific Beach. It's clean and comfortable with beautiful rooms and views of the ocean and sunsets.
Cons: Would have liked a microwave in the room.
Location: Right on the beach within walking distance to great food and shops.
Stayed for about a week on a spur of the moment vacation and couldn't have asked for a better place. The staff is amazing and so friendly. Never did it feel fake or scripted but they truly seemed to love their jobs and it showed. The valet/bell person gave us a great tip to visit the USS Midway and Seaport Village and he was right on. I could go on and on.....

What an awesome place!Posted Sep 30, 2014
Pros: Everything. The pool was cool but not as bad as the ocean. Get location only felt we were on display at times with the people going by. Awesome views
Cons: Ha! Lower prices??
Location: Didn't get to do much other than relax and have nice walks
Checkin was great, room was great other than the beds have large wooden frames you need to get accustomed to. Beds the beds were very nice. We had no view but in reality we did!! It was nice to see all the people going by to and from the beach. We could see the ocean and I'm sure there are rooms with way better views but why sit in your room or balcony when you can get out in it! Would go back in a minute.

Unexpected pleasurePosted Sep 23, 2014
Pros: Responsiveness of the staff to our quirks. How everyone acts like a concierge when it comes to recommending local amenities. FRIENDLINESS
Cons: nothing to add
Location: beach, Sea World, beach, Zoo, beach, local eateries, beach, shopping, beach, and BEACH
The hotel itself is beautiful, but the staff (everyone we met), makes it even more beautiful.

One of San Diego's FinestPosted Sep 12, 2014
Cons: Pacific Terrace is an upscale hotel that costs a little more than average. I think they should give you free Wi-Fi, rather than charge you for it.
Location: Literally, on the beach. Boardwalk biking, walking, jogging, eating and shopping nearby and just about anything within a short drive.
Pacific Terrace is perfect. Location, staff, amenities, location, cleanliness, view, location, did I mention location. Pacific Terrace can take care of any visitors from newlyweds to families. It really is one of the best.

Perfect beach locationPosted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: Location, location, location
Ideal location for a relaxing beach weekend. Perfect for family outings. The staff was welcoming and helpful. Rooms nice but could use a little decor updating...not because they were frayed but because they were out-of-date - high platforms for the beds for example. Breakfast buffet was good - and with the 1/2 off coupon for the first day, good value. The happy hour drinks at poolside also a nice touch. In walking distance to lots of restaurant options.
