My husband and I stayed here for one night on our way up the California coast. The room was large and very well equipped. Everything was up-to-date and it had all the amenities. It was clean and well kept. I would definitely stay here again.

After reading recent reviews here we thought this was simply a no-frills option for a tourist to stay economically along the SF coast, easy walk or drive to the oceanfront. Seriously? People have been reviewing this place waaay too generously, especially for what you have to pay. If you aren't prepared in advance for what you are getting into here,... More

It was alright...out dated water wouldn't drain real well in shower or sink. Hotel needs work. A lot of noise on our floor. I'm not sure I would stay again. It seemed clean I guess that is all that matters

Stayed for five nights in December 2015. This is a very comfortable and welcoming Motel. Just two minutes onto PCH and twenty five minutes from Golden Gate Bridge. Pacifica has a lovely Broadwalk along the Pacific Ocean. Supermarkets and Various Eateries are within five minutes of this fine Motel.

This hotel is really nice on the north side of Pacifica. It is two blocks from a wonderful beach walk and great food. Eat at Pacifica Thai Cuisine. You won't be disappointed. Our room was really large and the bed was firm and comfortable. The shower and tub had great hot water.

My husband stayed for a quick 2 night getaway. The room was large, clean, comfortable and had an ocean view. It also had a fridge and microwave, which is always great for getting to bring back leftovers and snacks. The hotel is close to the beach and pier. It was affordable especially since we spend a lot of time out... More

This is a very clean establishment. The clerk at the front desk was very helpful and nice. The room was perfect and so close to everything! As a woman who travels alone, I felt very safe here and it was a pleasant stay. Will be coming back again in the future!

We stayed here for two nights since staying closer to San Francisco was beyond our budget. The room was a decent size, and actually looked clean compared to other hotels we stayed at on our trip. The complimentary breakfast was a joke though, even for budget hotel standards. It pretty much was only cereal and toast. The parking lot is... More
