We booked this hotel last minute as it was close to San Francisco and a good price. We were pleasantly surprised. Wow what a view its in such a great location with a fantastic view over the ocean and right next to a small beach which attracts a lot of surfers.
The hotel has a modern feel and the rooms are big and clean. The staff were very helpful. A good small point was that you could help yourself to free juice and coffee all day and night and the breakfast was fine. I enjoyed my stay and would book again.

We are dedicated Holiday Inn Express customers and we frequently benefit from reward nights. We spent one of them here and couldn't have been happier with our experience. This HI is close enough to San Fran. But far enough out to be out of the melee. It is on the coast and the views are breath taking. The customer service was outstanding even for a HI. Warm cookies were ready and waiting on our arrival and the room was perfect.

My top five points on a good hotel:
1. Cleanliness and amenities (i.e. hot shower, strong spray); weak spray for thick hair
2. Noise level - fairly quiet, even though room faces highway
3. Breakfast area to view the ocean - smokers overtake which spoiled my ability to breathe the fresh ocean air and enjoy the deck or anywhere within the breakfast area; unfortunately I have a keen sense of smell... should have been a firefighter!
4. Internet service - constant interruptions (this should really be #1)
5. Friendliness of staff - rude night clerk when inquiring on service - needed to plan my stay and I ended up being up all night due to poor internet connection and clerk refusing to acknowledge there was any issue.s $1 for laundry soap .... when will somebody put in better machines with liquid soap dispensers - more economical and you can actually clean your load!
6. laundry facilities - $2 per load plu

Temporary issue: Elevator was not working - took 5+ min to go one floor - luckily I didn't need to carry anything too heavy so I took the stairs which were convenient; but, inconvenient for initial bring.


Positive points:
- lobby area has some sick looking fish; lionfish and blowfish and stunning ocean view... if there are no smokers to destroy the peace
- rooms are centered around an atrium for lounging, which is a nice touch
-free parking in lighted lot


Trader Joe's is about 10 min away in either direction, so if the breakfast is not a draw (bagels are a good alternative - but TJ's is better!)

Room Tip: I actually didn't see a pool - not sure. Overall, the smoking and elevator and internet issue...

At first I was disappointed as I didn't realise we'd be so far out of San Francisco but found the hotel very clean, peaceful, really friendly staff, especially Lisa. Good complimentary breakfast and the auto pancake maker will be the death of me! Great views lots of wildlife and once you get the hang of the buses and BART travelling back and forth to SF is no problem or if you get the bus and visit Half Moon Bay or shopping at Hillside Mall. Nicks restaurant serves fantastic food - our steak had to be taken home as so huge and kept us going all the next day!

Room Tip: Twin rooms do not have sea views so go for a king!

Dear Soopoo66,
We want to thank you for staying at our hotel and glad to hear that Lisa was helpful in providing you the information in making your travel plans go smoothly. We are conveniently located to San Francisco however being that we are in two different cities and counties negotiating the public transport can be challenging. We are glad that you were able to get familiar within your brief stay and hope that you return soon. PS: I miss running cross-country along the rolling hills of East Sussex.
Sincerely,
James

We spent 2 nights last saturday and sunday. With a couple of our friends, we were going to San Francisco but did not want to pay over $300 plus parking downtown SF, so Pacifica was a good option. We requested 2 rooms on the same floor and our rooms were not too far each other.The receptionist that day was Vijay. What a nice and devoted person. Holiday inn should be very proub to count him in their personel. Check in was quick and easy. A couple of minutes after check in, Vijay called to see if everything is ok!!!! Wow, we don't get that kind of service in a 5 stars hotel. The room was perfect. King bed , view on the parking , toilet clean, amenities etc. we also had a fridge, microwave, paper cups/plates and coffee. We walked around and decided to have pizza on their dining room. Vijay ordered us pizza. He also gave us instructions, direction to drive to the next bart station to go to SF. Sunday morning we drove to the Colma station, less than 10 min from the hotel, parking is free on week end unless is $2.50. Bart is $7.50 return to SF.
Breakfast is very good, lots of varieties, cereal, cinnamon buns, pancakes,eggs, sausage, bacon, etc and is included. Very good experience

A little suggestion, please avoid room which have communicating Door.We were woke up at 5:45 am sunday morning. We tought we were listening a porn/sex movie. No, it was our neighbors!!!!, we could hear everything, can tell you that ""Dave ""was in a good shape

Stopped here for a night on our way to wine tasting. Loved being out of the City, right on the water, great to have free parking after paying $40 to park In San Francisco :D. Clean, well appointed room with great view. Good complementary breakfast in the morning. Had wine and small bites at Olive in the Fog down the street, great find!

Room Tip: Both rooms we were in had great views, windows do open slightly so the sound of the ocean can lull y...
