Great hotel, near SFO, on the beautiful San Mateo County coast and restaurants within walking distance. Ocean view is amazing! Looking forward to going back soon. The restaurant across the street, Nick's, is fun and the food is great! Had a live band playing my favorite tunes. Fun!

This was a pleasant surprise of a hotel. Our room was very nice with a stunning view of the ocean waves crashing. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The Moonraker had a very pleasant breakfast as well. It was an easy drive into the city as well. I can't wait to visit again.

The ocean view from our room was breathtaking. Admittedly, we paid a little extra for this room, but not as much as other beachfront hotels charge for similar rooms. We stayed in the same hotel (and ROOM) the previous year, and it appeared to us that it had been upgraded - new carpet, new drapes, new furniture, but the price... More

Wow. I really enjoyed my stay here. The Pacific is at your doorstep. My room was not listed as having an ocean view but did. The beach, the proximity to all the attractions in San Francisco, and the seafood restaurants within walking distance all contribute to my returning soon.

Do not expect much for a "full" ocean view room - we faced a public parking lot! This was after requesting an upgrade from a partial ocean view. There was a large street cleaner that woke us up very early in the morning. The beach allows public access - with dogs and owners that do not bother to clean up... More

very nice location right on ocean. Views from room was obstructed by wooden railings in front of windows. Cant see anything if you are sitting down. Other than that very nice place. There are benches outside to sit and watch the ocean. grocery and pharmacy is minutes away.

My family stayed here for a few days so we could visit San Francisco. It was clean and comfortable. I chose it because it was on the beach, however, it was much too chilly to utilize that benefit. No big deal The area it's in is a little sketchy but lots of tourists made us feel fairly safe. The outside... More

Pacifica is a lovely and welcoming place, conveniently located at only a 15' drive of San Francisco's main attractions. A car is mandatory though, as there are no public transportations. The hotel staff was very friendly and polite. There is a huge convenient parking lot. The rooms are spacious and very quiet. The beds are extremely comfortable and the bathroom... More

Room was dark, dingy, and stuffy. No air and it was warm at night. Was told to open the balcony doors but we were next to an industrial area and it was noisy. Was given a fan but there was only one outlet in the room...needed for phones. Rooms cleaned poorly during the day. Definitely not what we expected!
