Just wanted to give two thumbs up to Pacifica, which seems to get too many thumbs down for not being SF or Half Moon Bay. We stayed Sunday, July 3 at the HI Express, rather than grab an airport hotel before our flight out on the 4th. "Foggy" Pacifica was brilliantly sunny, the beach was just right for us and the food at the little Mexican joint one block off the sand really hit the spot (home made tamales and fish tacos- wish I had some now!). Our commute to the airport was a breeze- and we flew out of Oakland. OK, that was due to light holiday traffic, but still.... Pacifica worked for us.
