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

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. :)

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

Valued guest, we’re very sorry that our hotel did not meet your needs. We have recently refreshed many rooms and have checked every room to make sure carpets are fresh and clean. We won’t stand for anything other than perfectly clean, fresh rooms. We offer several breakfast choices to our guests, but I am again sorry you couldn’t find anything... More
