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 The room was outdated even though the outside of the building looks up to date and modern.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...

We snagged the last available room here on a Saturday night but it was just what we needed-two beds, no smoking.The ocean view and window that opened to the sound of the surf were bonuses. The furnishings and bathroom tile were a bit aged but sound and clean. Even on a Saturday night our room was perfectly quiet. There are... More

We stayed there for one night. Our room was average in size, the bathroom and everything else quite clean. The staff are really compliant and friendly. We had difficulties with the Wifi and they fixed it instantly at 11 p.m. Good service, average place, overpriced.

Motel is clean, safe and owners were accommodating. 2 adults stayed for 4 nights. Motel is 3 levels, secure lock on doors, security cameras, 1 elevator, free open parking or easy street areas, and all over outdoor lighting. Room with ocean view is... More

We stayed here for 1 night in The later part of August. Easy to find, great price for being close to San Francisco and not paying 2 to 3 times the amount. Free parking. Ocean view room (king) was average sized. Accommodations are a little dated, but we were not in the room long so it was of no great... More

We didn't make reservations so called at the last minute and got a room with a king and pullout sofa. The pullout sofa was pretty worn and uncomfortable. Me and one of the kids sank to the middle and could feel the bar across the bed under our backs all night. The location is decent, but we really didn't take... More
