Our family of 4 stayed here for two nights. The room was large enough and the bathroom was clean. For the price we paid for the hotel this place could use some TLC, the carpeting and the hallways have seen better days. There were only three places to eat right within walking distance but if you get into your car... More

I was looking for a place with easy airport access at the end of our trip to San Francisco and Yosemite and started looking at the small towns surrounding SF for better deals and came across this place. Our room was looking out over the ocean with amazing views of the cliffs and the water. Sure the place is old... More

Really This place is a crap whole. A big rip off. Old dirty and stinky i mean it! . Great location near the ocean but It has not been renovated in 100 years. Go somewhere else do not support this place. Way to much money for the poor quality of the hotel. If all best westerns are like this one... More

Despite asking ahead of time for the handicapped room, it was inadequate. No continental breakfast, poorly heated outdoor pool. Broken thermostat. The beds were very comfortable however. Best Western's good reputation is tarnished by this motel.

We loved the location- Rockaway Beach is beautiful & the local shop owners are very nice. The hotel, unfortunately, wasn't quite what had been advertised or described. The floor we were on smelled overwhelmingly of turpentine & mildew, our room was hot & not equipped with an air conditioning unit, & the bathroom was somewhat grimy making us unsure if... More

This hotel is right on the ocean with bluffs on both sides. Check in was quick and easy with polite staff. The hotel is a little older and could use some updates, but we really had no complaints. It was clean and the ocean view was spectacular.

Great ocean view if you willing to pay for it, and the rooms, pool, and common areas are clean. Staff nice. Had a plumbing issue in both rooms, screwed up my shower and afternoon romp plans with maintenance coming in and out. Maintenance Guy was very nice and apologetic. Both rooms have a persistent mildew like smell, had to constantly... More

We stayed her during our drive up Highway 1 while driving across the country. This hotel was right off the highway and right on the beach. We slept with the sliding door open all night and I watched the waves crash up on the rocks right under out door...literally a sidewalk was all that kept the hotel off the beach.... More

We stayed 2 nites and it was overall very pleasant. Easy trip to San Francisco for sightseeing without the high price of in town hotels. Cute coffee shop and good restaurants nearby. Our only complaint was they had recently shampooed the rugs and they were still damp when we checked in. Easy walk to the beach. Enjoyed watching the surfers.

The rooms are clean and the staff is very helpful. The area is beautiful. Lots of places to see in the surrounding area. The pool area and spa are kept very clean. We had prompt service for extra amenities. Wonderful walking trails all around the hotel.
