I recently returned from a short stay in San Diego on Mission Bay. My accommodations were at the Pacific Terrace. I stayed in a 2nd floor partial ocean view room. I had asked for an upgrade to full view but there were none. No worries! I had an excellent view from my private patio on the North side. I could...

We had a beautiful room off the pool with a view of the ocean. The rooms were gorgeous and we were upgraded to a suite. The room was spacious and the beds were incredibly comfortable! We were able to walk to dinner two nights in a row. Also, the breakfast in the morning is VERY good and very convenient!

From the very first greeting from Enrico late at our check-in to Cameron the valet giving us great little sightseeing tips, our stay here was wonderful!! The accommodations were clean, and roomy.

We stayed for 5 nights and were very happy. The welcome is warm and friendly and this experience with all staff continued throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. Our full ocean view room was on the third (top) floor and I would highly recommend requesting this level if you can. The view is amazing and there is space...

Hello in England! Thanks for staying with us while in San Diego. You have certainly pointed out our greatest asset, our staff. They really enjoy interacting with their guests.

We had one night to spend in SoCal before attending a weekend wedding, so we wanted a special place to celebrate our anniversary. Having flown all the way from South Florida, we arrive at this hotel, excited to begin our journey in a "top" rated property.

Dear Guest, I wish you would have stayed with us to have the true Pacific Terrace experience, I know our staff would have made your anniversary very special. Although the view is the same as what you reserved, the Family Suite is a 2 room suite, it’s larger and it’s physically closer to the ocean than the Partial View room...
