This is our second time in Pacifica after a long time (first stay was at the best western closer to the beach) and I convinced my hubby to try this hotel out. Checked in around 11pm and parking was 97% full. All the ones left were for the compact cars. No one was at the front desk at first until... More

The Holiday Inn Express was a perfect two-day get away. We have never been to the area and we were not sure what to expect. This hotel fit our needs perfectly. Upon checking in, the gentleman at the front desk greeted us by allowing an upgrade to a room with a wonderful ocean view. We originally planned on staying for... More

Overall a great place to stay. Great location. While not fronting the beach, it is only a few hundred steps away. We loved the simple and quick oceanfront hikes available just out the front door. On our hikes we saw a constant show of whales - really amazing. All four of our family were so glad we stayed here. Good... More

We chose this area as didn't want to be staying in the hart of San Francisco. We wanted a couple of days rest after a long flight. Lounging on the Beach maybe. Unfortunately doesn't have much of a beach but a close walk away up and over the hill is a lovely beach - We didn't use it as the... More

Pacifica is only 20 to 45 minutes from anything in the SF Bay area and the HIE is the best bet got family and couple vacations. VERY few hotels up here are on the ocean side of the Coast Highway so that's a big bonus. Besides true "oceanfront" rooms you are steps from a small (and usually very quiet) cove... More

Clean, comfortable, and updated rooms. We were checked in by Vijay who was extremely friendly and helpful. We were on the 2nd floor which featured a beautiful sitting area just outside our room. The room was spacious and very clean. The AC worked great. The shower worked great and the hotel offers toiletries from Bath and Body Works. This hotel... More

Great location next to the beach & wonderful hiking hill, overlooking the Pacific ocean, and only 18 minutes from the SFO airport. There was a delicious breakfast spread available each morning with more than enough hot & cold choices to match anyone's taste buds. The rooms & bathrooms were pretty standard, though the Pacific ocean view improves greatly if you're... More

Stayed 3 nights while visiting SF. The drive wasn't bad, free covered parking, bottled water at check in, great varying breakfast options and wifi. Our room didn't have a view but the hotel was clean with a coffee pot, fridge and microwave. Breakfast room had an amazing view of the ocean.

We chose the property based on previous reviews. We were rather disappointed with the ocean view from our 2nd floor room. We looked directly down onto the roof of the motel that was directly in front of the ocean. Beyond that the proper itself was fine. The free breakfast had many choices. The staff were friendly and a consisting. For... More
