“Great hotel with a wonderful view of the ocean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2011

This was our first time staying at this hotel and if was a wonderful experience. Very nice room with a great view of the ocean and a very friendly staff that was very informative about the area and directions into San Francisco. Nice breakfast bar with good coffee. Would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

Hotel is ok, clean and the people are friendly. Was a little disappointed because we paid for an ocean view room and we basically over looked the motel in front of the holiday inn. We paid $260 for a king room which was over priced.

This was one of the best HIE that I have ever visited. The room was very clean, the breakfast area was as well. All the staff were very commited and passionate. THis location seems perfectly managed. It is just some miles away from SFO, but you don't have any airport noise, the hotel is next to the pacific, the small town of Pacifica is nothing fancy, but all you need. You have a beach in front of the hotel, just a few yards away. Just an awesome stay.

Excellent Location....150 Feet from the Ocean...It does have a beach...
Staff very friendly and helpful...Clean and Quiet Rooms..
Some Suites have Ocean views.
Only a 25 min drive to Pier 39 and Alcatraz in San Francisco.
Try the Scenic drive down Great Western Highway ( 1) Great Ocean Views
San Fran Zoo is along the Coast Highway..
Then take Geary street into San Fran
Pricier than Most HI Express but ,well worth it without the San Fran Noise....

Had spent a night at Holiday Inn Express Monteray which was fine for an overnight stop. We then drove to Pacifica Holiday Inn Express to visit San Francisco and was really pleased with the pleasant welcome and lovely spacious, clean rooms at this hotel. However...

At our last hotel we had left our laptop charger and as we were checking out asked the receptionist if she could organise for the Holiday Inn Express Monteray to send it on to the hotel we were heading to in LA. We were met with a blank look and told there was a minimum 'shipping' charge of $55! We explained that it isn't heavy and of course we would be happy to pay the postage cost but the receptionist said whatever it would still cost $55. What a shame. Her attitude wasn't helpful in the least and put a dampener on what was otherwise a pleasant stop over.

We pulled off the PCH for the evening and once we found the hotel ( Nick Gust Way is more of an alley than a street) we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is spotless, rooms are big, complimentary breakfast is great, and the location is awesome. Our room had a nice view of the beach and a restful soundtrack of the waves crashing along the rocks. I would surely recommend this hotel to travelers going to and from San Francisco.
