If you want a very basic but enjoyable hotel, this is the place. Very clean, staff was friendly and very cozy. Nice to get back to basics and have a wonderful night and not go broke. Well worth the money to stay here and very relaxing.

Stay away from this place!!!  We paid $350 for two nights and the rooms were extremely  dirty.  We found public hairs in the sheets,  hairs on the towels,  and my son had brand new clean socks on and within five minutes they were black from walking inside the room.  They do not dust at all and blankets are very itchy....

We stayed here for 2 nights as a last minute hotel and the rooms were nice and clean, the staff was also nice. The room was just a bit muggy when you walk in. Continental breakfast was good enough for us since were not a big breakfast kind of people. Toast and pastries, coffee, OJ, apple juice and cereal and... More

Stayed here for two nights. Rooms were neat and clean. It is close to the city and beaches. The management (Carlos) was very helpful. For the money it is a nice place and I will be staying here again.

My family and I stayed in two rooms. They were actually pretty decent- clean and comfortable. However the service was TERRIBLE. We had several kids with us and came back from the beach sandy and wet. So we gave the kids showers before we headed back out and used all the towels. So we asked for more towels in one... More

Dear Guest, Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad you were pleased with the quality of your rooms. We strive for clean and comfortable rooms in all cases. I'm sorry that there was a misunderstanding regarding towels. As I understand it, there were simply no more towels available at the front desk at the moment your brother asked. More would have...

I wanted to see San Francisco but the hotels in the city were booked. Pacifica was close and available. The hotel looked like it had been recently remodeled it was very clean. It is very close to the freeway which was convenient and there wasn't much traffic at night so it wasn't noisy. It was an excellent room for the... More

I called to book a room without checking the reviews. Big mistake. When I called I was quoted 129 for a double bed room and I resvered it. Not only was this inaccurate, but the gentleman made no effort to explain why the rate had gone up 30$, and was incredibly nasty and short. I ended up leaving and paying... More

We recommend booking online and printing out the reservation details as a great way to avoid confusion. I hope this issue was adequately resolved for you by the manager on duty.

I am sure people have been here and enjoyed their stay. I booked for two nights in September 2014 but wanted to know what public transport there was available to get in to SF as the hotel is a few miles outside of city.

I've stayed here twice. Rooms are clean, beds comfortable, bathroom clean. The halls and public spaces (such as they are) are very basic. Obviously no money was spent to make the motel look or feel appealing. The people who run the place live in an apartment behind the plastic (bullet proof?) window that protects the desk. You have to ring... More

I had a fine couple of nights staying at this hotel. The price was great, the room was fine and clean, everything worked in the room, bed was clean, easy check in, safe area, peaceful night... fridge/freezer, microwave, desk... there was wifi but it was a little slow. It was all good though. :)
