“Beach Side on a budget”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

If you're in the San Francisco area looking for a room just feet from the sand, and the sticker shock has you grasping your chest, The Sea Breeze Motel is for you. Tucked between the Best Western and Holiday Inn at Rockaway Beach. This little gem is a diamond in the rough. The rooms have recently been upgraded. the parking lot is shared with an off the hook restaraunt (Nick's), the beach is feet from your door and if the tide is up, cars are sprayed from the waves breaking on the rocks below the parking lot. paved walking / bikeing paths, beach, fine dining, dancing all at your door step for $100 less than the surrounding rack rate? you can't go wrong but at this price don't expect 5 star accomodations. Just expect a clean basic room and great customer service. We do and we have not been disappointed yet.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 - 12 give you an ocean view (across a parking lot)

my friend and i chose a week day to yisit the seabreeze motel. the location was perfect. you are right on the beach and you can hear the ocean all the time. there are alot of rocks to sit on in front of the motel to sit on a watch and feel the surf. the rooms are small but clean, the shower was very small. thats the only thing i can say as negative about the motel room. it was quiet the time we were there, so i cant say if it is noisey at other times. the owner is very nice and helpful about telling you about things you want to know. the motel is reasonabley priced. the beaches are very nice. we plan to make this spot our yearly spot!! make sure you visit this spot!!!!

Straight outa the '60s, dude! It's like it was built and then never changed- fairly small rooms, thin walls, but it's all about location. A beautiful ocean takes up your whole view and the sound of surf on the rocks lulled us to sleep as promised. We love to walk, and the surrounding area is full of bluffs and views and animals and well-maintained trails. We had a great time!

You hear the ocean all night long at this motel. Very old, flash from the past type place but decent and super clean. They have updated the furniture a little bit and the fixtures in the bathrooms. However, they are tiny and tile is original but clean! The shower is tiny and since I am short, I have to dodge the spray since I don't wish to wash my hair every time but other than that, we open the window and cool breezes come in, ocean noise all night...delightful! The staff is VERY nice and helped us at every turn and request without hesitation or attitude. Always a smile from the owner. Maids were also nice. GREAT deal folks ...not fancy but you will love the fact that you walk about 50 steps to the viewing of the ocean. We went out every night and stood for long times dodging the waves (sometimes they are high at night) and laughing about it. During the day I made friends with tame rock squirrels and seagulls and feed them my leftover bread. I had lots of fun. They are characters! One pigeon sat on my hand in order to get his first!
Oh, decent beds, nice linens to boot. Very safe feeling place altogether.

My Bestie and I are always looking for a great place to eat, walk and chat near a beach. WOW what a super "Meet in the Middle" spot. I am from Petaluma and she is from Aptos, Ca and we stayed the night at this very clean and very friendly motel, enjoyed wave and wildlife enjoyment and many trails for adventure. We stayed overnight ate at Nick's, yummy fish tacos. The staff at the motel were so thoughtful, after we checked out, we were out and about walking and just happened to check back with them regarding purchasing some great fresh seafood, when they mentioned I had left some items in the room which they saved for me....YAY!! Good Karma, Good Waves, Good Peeps, Good Times!!!

The rooms seemed updated somewhat from the pictures on TA. they were very comfortable and clean. The other guests were fairly quiet so no problems. I was so tired after a wonderful family dinner and listening to the Dirty Cats Jazz band we sailed off to sleep easily. We were assisted in parking our longish truck we we got there and offered coffee to relax etc.

Room Tip: The doubles were what we selected for our family. The room were only $109.00. This made it affordabl...

We were here June 14, 2012 as our last night in California. The room is right on the coast. The "sea breeze" is magnificent and stirs up huge, loud waves--perfect to fall asleep with the window open. We paid $128 for the night so we were pleased with our bill. The room was nothing luxurious (see photos) but clean and well maintained. We were minutes (with no traffic though) from the airport and another few on to San Francisco. Located right on Highway 1 so easy to get to. Nick's is an old fashioned restaurant/bar right next door (actually a part of the same building). We ate there for dinner. Pricey but good. Nearby is some shops and a wine bar (A Grape in the Fog--very cute). The gentleman in the office was friendly and polite. Gave us a wake-up call right on time. Parking is 20 feet in front of the rooms (roll up your windows and sunroof--- everything gets wet from the crashing waves below). Overall we were pleased and would return.

Room Tip: Rooms at the end by the office tend to get the most wet from the waves.
