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. :)

This hotel was a great relief from our last vacation stay (see: Rodeway Inn, Monterey!). It was in a quiet part of town, although the freeway was nearby. The room was clean and confortable. I checked for bed bugs per some of the other reviews, and gladly found none. The desk manager was friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay... More

I slept in the hotel only one night before the flight. In this single night, I have got bitten by the bed bugs (Bettwanzen in German). Will never ever stay there again. Was not cheap at all! Took it because it is 25 min till San Francisco international airport. Breakfast is of American style, too sweet.

Thanks for taking time to comment. We have professional exterminators who visits our property each month and we pride ourselves in a clean, hygienic environment. Perhaps the insect bites came from a visit to one of the nearby parks. We are also pleased to offer an array cereals for those who don’t like sweet breakfasts. We hope you will try... More

We chose this as our first stop on a Cali Road trip. We wanted somewhere a short drive from the airport with a beach for a walk and a decent nights sleep and not pricey Pacifica is an interesting small town and we enjoyed our walk after our long travel. There are only a couple of restaurants and I think... More

Stayed one night over 4th of July weekend. Over priced and dumpy. Room outdated, carpet dirty. Did not honor the online rate. Rooms rent by the week so it looked kinda like a flop house. Won't stay there again.

My family of 4 stayed from July till Nov 2012 while in transition to a new home. Carlos and his wife made our stay comfortable. They always have a smile. They kept the hotel clean,safe and affordable. Very attentive to our needs and requests. Thank you for having us.

I had a very good stay. The service was very good, the room was very clean, quiet, and the staff's attention to detail was excellent. The location is within walking distance to the beach and the neighborhood has several nice restaurants. I will stay here again and recommend this location to others.

Price is a tad high, but I really liked the room. You could have fit a third double bed in the room! Parking lot is a bit small. The breakfast was even smaller. But since the room had a stove in it you can make up for they do not provide. We watched the sunset over the ocean from our... More
