“Great hotel in Pacifica”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We had a very nice room both visits to Pacifica and were very happy with the overall room experience. Everything was clean and working and we had a big room. Nice to have the space and not be cramped. We will definitely stay here again.

Comfortabe room and convenient location. There are few choices in Pacifica and this hotel is one of the best available. We have used this hotel on many occasions and have been satisfied with each stay.

This hotel met all my expectations yet again. The hotel is well situated on Rockaway Beach with a wonderful ocean view and yet is close to the highway so local attractions are easily reached. It also has an excellent restaurant with the same beautiful ocean views. I would definitely stay here again.

Pound for pound, this is an amazing hotel, if you get the right room. I wanted to visit the bay area and didn't want to stay in hustle and bustle of the city.

The area: Pacifica is a sleepy beach town where you don't have to worry about crazy crowds. There are unique restaurants that you must try, regardless of your palate. The hotel is located is a small cluster of shops off the main highway. Rockaway Beach is peaceful and beautiful. The hotel's location is far enough from the busy city but close enough to get there within minutes.

The hotel is right on the beach. Although its exterior is not as crisp as the Holiday Inn up the street, the location makes up for it. This is a no frills place but with its amazing location, it doesn't need it. The room was clean and the beds were fine. The only drawback was the smoke smell that greeted us entering the room. Opening the sliding door took care of that, however I don't like being greeted by a smoke smell. I stayed in an oceanfront room on the third floor and the views were amazing. Waking up to the sound of waves crashing is a nice experience.

The staff was courteous and helpful and parking was sufficient. Check in was a breeze and although the hotel layout is a bit odd, I was able to find my room with ease. Overall, this is a great hotel if you're planning on visiting the Bay Area and are looking for nice experience. I can't wait to return.

What a pleasant experience... On a whim, after a drive up the California coast, I booked this hotel at 10 pm, didn't arrive til nearly midnight, and was treated like a favored guest. The night clerk was smiling, helpful, and gave me a free upgrade to an ocean view room without being asked! Her explanation? "You've had a long day..." Service like that is rare these days.

My room was nicely decorated and the bathroom was large. Very nice linens throughout. Of course, what stands out is that this hotel is a few yards from the Pacific, in a trendy little area called Rockaway Beach, and the scenery is truly breathtaking. On one side is a path up through rocks to an overlook, and on the other a a walking/running trail up the side of a grassy headland. I noticed that the locals come at lunchtime to walk, or just sit on the oceanfront benches and unwind. There are several restaurants and a coffee shop within a block. I recommend Breakers, right behind the hotel.

I hope to return to this place again and again!

Love the Lighthouse Hotel, Best Western. Ocean view is more than worth the it, romantic view, the sun setting in the west, the waves crashing on the beach and you feel totally alone. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable and the view, there are times we never leave the room! Our favorite spot.

Great view of ocean from room, staff were friendly and efficient. Good location for checking out San Francisco and surrounding area. Location of hotel on the beach/ocean make it an excellent location to explore the area, plus the town of Pacifica has shopping and restaurant's so you don't have to go to far if you don't want to.
