So I actually heard the waves crashing through the night. Pacifica is a beautiful, quaint beach town. I adore this spot. It reminds my of the town where "Murder, she wrote" was filmed. It's actually only 50 miles or so away. (: anyway, I seem to have gotten off the subject. If you are looking for a posh beach resort,... More

This was our stop between Disneyland & San Francisco...we stayed just outside SF to save some money & we were a bit disappointed. We had a suite room (2 double/1 sleeper sofa), not a room w/ a view...which we knew it did not have a view. Our room was very dated, and could have used a really good cleaning! The... More

Room not very clean. No maintaince to service issue we had with room.Dated looking and bed old. Non caring management. Told room would have oceanview and did not. Cobwebs on walls and caked on dust. Worst $100 room ever well overpriced. Outside is better looking than inside.

Not a new motel by any means, but we had a view of the water from our room. Because it was Pumpkin Festival weekend in Half Moon Bay, lodging was almost impossible to find. The price here was fair, we could walk to the beach if we had wanted to, and it was a central location for us. It was... More

You can tell this whole area has gone downhill. This hotel is dated, the rooms need a total remodel. I would not recommend this at all. The mattress was lumpy and caved in. They could do a little work and it would be ok.

We made some last minute reservations for this hotel with some family friends over a holiday weekend. We arrived late, but we were quickly checked in and into our rooms. The first problem we encountered was there was not enough parking for the hotel's guests and street parking was very limited.The room size was very good and it accommodated our... More

The hotel is situated in quite a nice location, one street back from a small bay with cliff walks in either direction, and a short drive to local shops & restaurants. If you don't want to venture far to eat, the nearby Sea Breeze Motel has a restaurant. The staff were very frindly and welcoming but the hotel itself is... More

Based on appearances, the rooms haven't been updated since the 70's and bring a hair dryer since the contraption they provide comes from that era as well. But if you are looking for a cheap, clean room in a good location near the beach, this is the place for you.
