This property is right on the beach with a beautiful view. We saw the whales from our room window and listened to the surf from or room. Service was also great providing us with a quick response to our needs. Also enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Convenient to San Francisco sights .

We loved hearing the crashing of the waves outside our room. This made for nice naps and cool evenings, so we slept well while staying at the Best Western. However, the rooms were a bit tired and there were stains on the carpet. We were placed in an ocean side room (which we paid for), but it overlooked a parking... More

The room was beautiful and clean. We had an ocean view and had quite a show of whale activity straight off of our balcony. We enjoyed the property so much, we stayed and had dinner there rather than travel into San Francisco. The pool and hot tub are spotless and the staff is very friendly. Every staff member we encountered... More

The Best Western chain of hotels always makes our stay a happy one! This hotel was right on the water and was a bit windy but the view was gorgeous. The building itself is older but looks like it has been refurbished recently and was very comfortable. My family enjoyed the pool and we really loved watching the whales from... More

Surprising great stay! I don't usually stay at BW hotels - but this BW Plus was truly a diamond in the rough. Nice, clean, and the location was second to none! OUTSTANDING sunsets, whale watching and the sounds and that was from our room!

To paraphrase Mark Twain: "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in Foggy Pacifica." The hotel was really great. Fresh coffee either in your room or in the Lobby. The beds were quite comfortable, the maid service was extremely efficient & you could fall asleep or wake up to the sound of the surf. We had a room... More

We’ve stayed here before and knew what to expect: a delightful 2-night stay in an oceanfront room, where we could hear the sound of the surf, and enjoy magnificent vistas of the Pacific Ocean. From the balcony you can watch people surfing, fishing, and walking, plus boats and ships headed to the port of San Francisco. This year was different,... More

We booked this hotel with trip advisor. We wanted to stay here because we were told that this was a pet friendly hotel. We called to inquire exactly what the pet fees were. At that time we were told the dogs over 40 pounds were not allowed. We were also told that certain breeds are not allowed. This is not... More

Everyone was helping and pleasant. The rooms were little expensive but it was the weekend and the 4th of July. I would most likely stay there again. We were so close to the beach and the whales were swimming so close to the shore. The town was small but had a lot to offer for entertainment. The fireworks were awesome.... More
