“Diagnosis - Scabies”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I'm surprised at some of the clean remarks about this hotel because that is not what I found. Maybe it is dependent on the room or whom cleaned the room. Definitely do not stay here if it's a prolong stay or traveling with kids. We needed to obtain a government rate and this is the only place providing that rate, within Pacifica. We stayed there 4 nights. Each night was more horrible than the next. My boy picked up so much crap off the floor, eventually something he picked up made him throw up. He threw up on the comforter and I took it off, plus put it on the floor to be replaced. I found that they put it back on the bed. There was mold on the bathroom window and on the shower curtain. An inch of dust on the floor behind the bed. Fridge was not cleaned when we checked in. The worst part, me and my son got scabies. If anyone has ever had scabies, it sucks and it is very time consuming to get rid of. We have to treat the whole family and it's not fun trying to treat a 1 and 3 year old. We notified San Mateo County about this health concern. It's cheap for a reason and I definitely would not recommend it, especially if you have no tolerance for dirtiness.

Needed a place to stay by San Fran that was not outrageous in price. We headed out of town a ways and saw the exit to Pacifica, took it an came upon this motel. We took the chance even though it was not a name we recognized. Not new or fancy but our room was large with two queen beds and clean. Plenty of towels and had an elevator right close to our room. It worked every time and we used it a lot. Plenty of outlets on the walls for recharging all of our phones, laptops and mifis. Nothing hot for breakfast but plenty there to have a healthy breakfast. We only booked for one night at the beginning but decided to stay and play an extra day in San Francisco so booked the same room for the next night. We found the manager to be very accommodating and he was always there if we needed something, which we did not except for more coffee for the next morning. It is so nice and close to everything...I would definitely stay there again. If you are traveling far from a hustle and bustle city you probably could get this type of room for $65.00 at the senior rate but for being that close to San Francisco, it was a great place to use as our base.

Room Tip: Drive a few miles out and you can save a lot of money by staying in this motel. Easy access back to...

The San Francisco Bay Area was experiencing a heavy travelers week. City hotels were booked full and charging there "high" rates. Having lived in the bay area for my entire life, abeit the past 6 years, I drove to the coast city of Pacifica (8-miles south). My GPS showed "Americ'a Best Value Inn". I stopped, and found the price affordable. Manager on duty was helpful and even reduced the price after I showed all my cards (AARP, AAA, etc.) (ps... the parking lot was empty at 6-pm)
The room was non-smoking, large with king bed, table and side chair.
Roadway facing room .. was very quite and could not hear the traffic.
Continental Breakfast was adequate with OJ or Apple, cereal, pastry, coffee.
Check out was easy and smooth at 7:30am.
(Parking lot was FULL)

The room I stayed in had mold around the windows--a lot of it. The heater didn't work. The carpet was badly stained. The tub/shower had nothing to prevent slipping, or to hold on to if you lost your balance. The bathroom was generally discusting. The attendant seemed to pretent that he didn't understand English. The worst place I've ever stayed, and for $100.

Forget the big sign on the front of the building-it's never applicable! Had to telepone the place to even raise a live person! Ridiculous!

Reading some of the other reviews here you would think those who wrote them are used to staying at the Ritz. I have stayed here many times over the past year for work, and the experience has always been a very enjoyable one. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are kept clean, wifi works great, there is a simple but sufficient breakfast in the morning, and the place is homey. Sure the washer and drier are outside, and the highway side is noisy, but the place is also two blocks form a gorgeous beach! I have stayed in many hotels in my life, as I travel a lot for work and leisure, and for the price and area this one is great!
