We have been coming here for years. We love it here. The restaurant serves fantastic food and the bar has dollar oysters during happy hour. The hotel is right on the ocean and the waves will lull you to sleep at night.

I enjoy the Lighthouse Inn at Rockaway Beach each time I visit the Bay Area. Many people don't know that this hotel is so close to SFO (12 - 15 Minutes) and down town (30 Minutes) but sits right on the Pacific. I stay here when I do business and enjoy staying on the ocean much better than at the...

This hotel was a great value. It has wonderful views of the ocean and a great restaurant. Breakfast was spectacular. Despite being close to everything, the feel is secluded. I would definitely return.

Can't get a better view than overlooking the Northern California coastline than the view from the double rooms with sliding door to the crashing of the waves. Very friendly staff including a microwave to pop and enjoy popcorn while watching our movie in the room and listening to the ocean.

The California Institute of Integral Studies has their week-long intensives at this hotel for the MA and PhD programs in the Transformative Inquiry Department. This is the second time I've been and it's a wonderful experience. The staff is very accommodating with meals, making sure there are vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. This...

We decided to stay outside of San Francisco, and we couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The hotel itself is a little tired, and could do with updating, but as it's just somewhere to sleep, it's ok. We had hired a car and would drive to the end of the rail line, and went in to the city from there....

I love California and all of the choices we have around us, especially near the ocean. As other reviews already mention, the Best Western Lighthouse Hotel has the best views and an amazing location in a cozy cove.

This hotel and staff were great. Desk staff were friendly, attentive and recognized our rewards status. I had asked for an ocean front room and we were accommodated with a room with an amazing view. Wish we were staying longer than the 1 night so we could have enjoyed it more. Parking was plentiful, easy access to Highway 1. There...

First stay at this property and 4 stars simply for the view. To watch the waves and the surfers is worth the stay. The room wasn't bad. The beds really need replacing. The amenities weren't bad. Breakfast not included which was a bummer as their restaurant was very pricey and limited selection. Had almost everything you need in room. The...
