This was a quite and clean room just a little dark in the colors they picked it was great hearing the ocean. The staff at the front desk was great, very friendly.the location is good right on the beach. Could use a paint job being on the coast kinda makes it a little dark.

The staff was great from registration to check-out. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The restaurant has great food and an incredible view. Watching the sun set over the ocean from the room's balcony and then listening to the waves breaking and rolling up onto the beach made for a great night's sleep. I already booked a return visit with... More

I don't recommend this hotel and think it's overrated. The location is great for the beach, but that's about it. I found trash under my bed. There was a bug crawling up the shower curtain. The sink was outside the bathroom and next to the bed. The room was not clean enough where I felt comfortable.

We booked a cove view room thinking about the sound of the ocean. We were lucky to have a big wave weekend, which we took advantage of by pulling the couch in front of the window, pouring some wine and watching surfers until the sunset. We decided to dine at Moonraker, which was great. Every seat in the main dining... More

Our room was nice and clean and had a very comfortable bed and the wifi was fast. The staff were pleasant and helpful. There are some cute shops and restaurants nearby and nice walking... More

We stayed here the night before a flight out of SFO (only a 15 minute drive away, with no traffic). The room charge was half of anyplace else comparable in the Bay Area. We had a wonderful ocean view room. The attached restaurant (Moonraker) is a definite plus. Nice location near a quaint shopping area.

The Best Western Lighthouse Hotel in Pacifica is our favorite hotel. The Junior Suites have the most beautiful view, we have yet to find anywhere that compares. The property is awesome, the rooms are great and the beds are comfy. The sound of the ocean is so loud, you are so close to the ocean, you feel like you are... More

Excellent accommodations, friendly staff, beautiful ocean view, situated on beautiful Rockaway Beach. We stay here every New Year's Eve as it is very convenient for us to attend our friend's annual NY's eve house party. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful. Moon Raker Restaurant is right next door and Dick's Restaurant is right across the street. Highly recommend this hotel... More

The hotel looks a bit worn down, which has also been complained about in some of the reviews. If you, however, see the bay from a distance you see that the waves rolling in create a constant spray of salty water. It would be almost impossible to keep everything in shape without constantly painting it. The bay offers spectacular vies... More
