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

Good enough hotel near the waters edge. Clean bed and linens. Not the best amenities. Towels and washcloths thin. Shower nice and hot. One of the largest rooms we've stayed in. Plan on walking up either of the cliffs to the side. Plan on plenty of time to watch people fishing and surfing. Up close and personal with the ocean... More

First of all, ocean view rooms are a must! You can hear and see the waves and THAT is the draw! This hotel itself is old a run down, moldy bathtub, bathroom smelled of mold and mildew, but bed was comfy and linens were clean. The desk guy tried to jack the price up, but I called him on it..and... More

This is a good choice for a reasonably priced stay near the beach. Featuring a view of the beach for those willing to pay a little extra, you will enjoy the sound of the surf and a location very near the beach. The property seems to be undergoing an upgrade. The level of finish is adequate but nothing spectacular. I... More

This place is a great value. You can listen to the ocean all night with your window open. Ocean views from second and third floor rooms. Clean and safe. I stay here about once a month in the summer and they are always doing upgrade as they can so it keeps getting better and better.

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.
