Great location in Pacifica (off highway 101, south of San Francisco, close to SFO) yet Rockaway Beach location is a hidden hideaway on the beach. This HIE is expanding so check on construction completion date but no doubt the best choice for couples or families looking for some R&R. Everything you need (restaurants, shopping, two beaches) within a block of the hotel! This particular HIE is special for the small but so appreciated detailing of the room (see photos). Keep in mind our booking is a Junior Suite/Ocean View and highly recommended.

The hotel is right by the beach and my room had a wonderful view. The location is awesome and the staff was great. Breakfast was not so great. Scrambled eggs were very oily and the sausage links weren't very tasty but they had cereal. Fruit and yogurt which was fine. Big plus they had a car show just behind the hotel kn Wednesday.

This Holiday Inn hotel was very clean and well stocked with toiletries and so forth. The room was spacious and bright. There is construction at this writing, although we weren't bothered by it on a Saturday. The breakfast was very good, and we had no trouble parking. Before I made the reservation, I had a little trouble determining how the area would be. As noted above, the hotel was fine. But just a few side notes in case you are planning a stay in the little area of Pacifica. Just my opinions, of course. I found the little town to be a bit run down and uninteresting. I was happy that I had a car and was only staying one night. We went to Nick's restaurant for dinner, as it was in front of the hotel. It was pricey and not worth it. There are two other little diners nearby. Paid 5.00 for a tiny scoop of ice cream and a tablespoon of hot fudge. Not much in the way of shops, nowhere to get groceries or sundries except the gas station. The beach was picturesque, but didn't seem like a beach for swimming. Alot of locals fishing and kayaking. We did enjoy the view of the dolphins, a whale, a seal, and pelicans from the side of the beach that had a concrete walkway. Very fun to sit and relax. Again...if you just want to chill and not swim, this is for you. If you are looking for something more, another location would be better for you. I don't think kids or teenagers would like this at all. Again...just my opinion, I had a sixteen year old with me, and she agreed. Hotel was great, though.

Booked this place really as a matter of convenience to conclude a brief west coast trip and wanted to be within a short drive of SF International while still enjoying some last-minute California coastal scenery. My only regret for our short overnight stay was having to exit for SFO after such a limited stay. WHAT WAS GOOD: I can’t overstate the beauty of the location right on Rockaway Beach and surrounded by spectacular coastal cliffs. Just steps from the door, the scenery is breathtaking….The property is located in a mixed-use development among other hotels, restaurants, shops and commercial businesses. There are a few good restaurants in the immediate walkable area….Our room was clean, comfortable, modern and with ample floor space. It contained all the amenities you would want – a fridge, microwave, coffee station, etc. Also a good-sized and high quality TV….Breakfast is served in a nice area near the reception area. Food choices and quality were very good. WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER: I didn’t spring for the ocean view so our view overlooking construction and the highway was disappointing for such a scenic location….Parking in the garage was tight. It was tricky to maneuver even our small SUV in and out of the lot. THINGS TO KNOW: Our drive to the airport for a morning weekday flight was under a half an hour. Great that this place is so convenient to the city and the airport while still feeling like a distant getaway spot. BOTTOM LINE: Good basic lodging choice in a convenient and exceptionally scenic location.
