Stayed one night. Wouldn't want to spend more. Very dated. Needs updated. Beds are hard, noisy, and uncomfortable. Staff nice. Gave us an upgrade to oceanview free. Perfect location...close to ocean and San Francisco. Now... Off to see the SF Giants beat the Padres!!

We had a room with the view of the sunset over the Pacific Ocean and slept with the window open to hear the waves. There is a one-story hotel between this hotel and the beach. The hotels in this area are on the old side. We waited for housekeeping to finish cleaning our room, so it should have been clean.... More

We spent one night at the Pacifica Motor Inn for our 40th Anniversary last weekend. It is an older Motel but very nice. The staff was very courteous and the room clean. The bed was comfortable. We had called ahead and requested a top floor room with an ocean view and it was very nice to be able to open... More

The hotel was perfect for our needs. The room was a good size with great views. The in-room microwave and refrigerator was handy. There was a Safeway just a mile down the highway where we bought some goods for our 4 day stay. There were also excellent restaurants within walking distance. There are hiking trails around the hotel which we... More

This is a good place to lay your head at night & a place you can bring your pooch. Not a place you like so much that you want to relax in the room. Not all rooms are equal. The ones above the office are older & smaller than the ones across the parking lot. The hotel still has bed... More

First, we did a late night check in and were slightly weirded out by the fact we had to call to get someone to check us in (the phone rang forever and we were slightly worried we wouldn't even get to check in!) However, the heat in the room worked awesome, the ocean view was stunning, and the room was... More

We used this hotel as a place to spent the night before we returned a rental car. The room was outdated even though the outside of the building looks up to date and modern. During the winter season there weren't any restaurants open for dinner so the best we could do was going to the grocery store and buying foods... More

First, if you stay here, spend the extra $10 for an ocean view room and make it on the 3rd floor. From my 3rd floor room I had a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. As it is usually chilly in Pacifica, I kept the heater on & the windows open so that I could go to sleep & wake... More

There needs to be some serious renavatting of this motel. When we walked in, I was back in the 70's! The employees that we delt with were all polite. The view from our third floor room was beautiful. We over looked the ocean and a cove with surfers! A glass of wine and a great view was very pleasant.

This hotel needs some serious, serious upgrading! It was a huge disappointment to have selected and paid for an ocean front room, only to have the direct view from the second floor significantly obscured by Nick's nightclub and restaurant across the street; technically we had a view because you could see the ocean if you stood at the window and...
