Pacifica Hotel Testimonials

“My husband and I try to stay at this hotel when we stay in Pacifica, when the price is right! The rooms are spacious enough for us. We stayed in a gorgeous room our first time there with a patio that outlooks the beach but haven't been able to get it any other time. We enjoy the jetted tub after a day by the beach, and the location is centrally located with a lot of adventures within miles.

Gold mine
Stayed here in July when it is foggy every day but still an amazing place to stay. The hotel is as old as the coast and the rooms all face the beach and have this massive jet tub in every room so if you like a great view of the water and or surf and want to just cross the street to hit some waves this is the place and after the sun goes down the cars go away and the stars come out so kick it on the beach at night and wow, what a sight

Stayed July 2014, traveled as a couple

Very Satisfied

I was looking for a hotel to stay one night in San Francisco. They were $300+ per night plus tax. I found this hotel in the internet and very pleased because it is nice, affordable and in a nice area. The room was clean, indoor pool and for my surprise a jacuzzi in the room. It is about 30 minutes drive from the city but I saved money and very satisfied with the hotel.

Ocean view room was exactly that, gorgeous! The property and grounds are well maintained and beautiful. The receptionist's were warm and friendly. The room was clean, and inviting. The interior hallways are impeccably maintained, despite guests tracking in sand. I enjoyed the covered parking, and comfortable ambiance of this hotel. We ventured to Luigi's, which is featured in their hotel information pack, it's definitely a local experience, we enjoyed the food, and warm reception of "Lu", and his staff.

“When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the front desk woman, her name is Rose Head, she was very helpful when we were looking for a restaurant to eat, she gave us a list of restaurants she had at her front desk. We walked on the beautiful beach, it was so fun. I would defiantly recommend this hotel.“

It is so much better than the other comments

My review would normally be 4 stars for this hotel but I wanted to help boost the ratings because it is so much better than the other comments I've read.
Stopped here on a whim after my wife and 2 year-old boy decided to stay overnight after an SF trip. Staff was exuberant and friendly and worked hard to get us the accommodations we needed for my son.
Our "partial" ocean view had a GREAT view of the ocean!!! The deck area would have been great had we been just the 2 of us :) Maybe even dinner on the deck! The hot tub in the room was perfect...great size (I'm 6'2" and the whole family fit!!!). I was not informed of a "Not after 10pm" rule. I WAS asked to be considerate of other guests after 10pm...Continue Reading

Amazing location!

I booked a room here for my boyfriends birthday. We got a room with a jetted tub, which I highly recommend. Right outside our door, we had a beautiful ocean view and saw an amazing sunset over the Pacifica horizon. It was very peaceful and quiet, the accommodations were minimal, but clean...Read More

Excellent experience

We came to this hotel for our honeymoon and it was fantastic! Loved being right next to the ocean and many different places to eat for dinners for us so we didn't have to travel far. Great staff, very friendly and helped us figure out things to do, since our original plans kind of fell through. Do recommend since its a short distance to SF but yet in a quiet area.

Great Hotel

A group of six of us went to the hotel and reserved three rooms. One person in our party saw some bad reviews but we figured what the heck. All six of us absolutely loved the hotel and the staff. Both receptionists at the front desk were so helpful and nice. We enjoyed eating at the restaurant next door (Puerto 27) and liked that we could walk across the street to the beach. We also got to see whales from our room. Who could ask for more?

Excellent location

My husband and I stayed here while work was being done on our house in Pacifica. I was pleasantly surprised! I am a concierge in SF, and I will recommend this hotel to tourists for sure. It is not a B&B, nor does it claim to be, but in comparison to other hotels in Pacifica, the price, cleanliness, views, hot tub ( in each room), pool, friendly service, central location , and FREE PARKING are all great! The hotel sits right above hwy1 (virtually no noise with windows closed) with beautiful views. Easy, safe beach access and the Peruvian restaurant is very good. SF is a quick 20 drive away.

Great hotel, terrific location , spacious rooms

The Pacifica Beach Hotel was a phenomenal find for our accommodations while in California Jan 5 - 10 , 2016. The room was very spacious, very clean and yet very cozy. It featured an electric fireplace, a very large jacuzzi, king bed, microwave, refrigerator, table and chairs, large bathroom with a great shower. The price was very reasonable for what we got. It included a continental breakfast with good choices. Even though we didn't use the pool on the premises, it looked very nice. You could see the Pacific Ocean at Linda Mar beach from it. We could also see the...

“Gorgeous view from top of the hill overlooking the ocean!”

The hotel is on a hill overlooking the ocean with a beautiful view! The parking and the rooms are staggered so even though I was on the 2nd floor I had no stairs. Had a very nice spacious room with an in-room jucuzzi, microwave and frig. Bed was very comfortable. I heard no traffic noise. Easy to find, signs are very visible. Easy drive to San Francisco airport, weekday morning at 7am took me less than 30 minutes. Definitely recommend this hotel!

“Last November, my husband received a new heart, but was unable to return home because our house was under construction. We needed a clean place to stay for 2 weeks, so we chose Pacifica Beach Inn. The staff was most accommodating. The rooms were clean, spacious, and very comfortable. We had stayed here many times previously and whenever I had guests coming to town I always have them stay at the Pacifica Beach Inn. Everyone had good experiences here.

“ Great place to stay for a surf weekend”

I really enjoyed staying here for a weekend for a retreat in October 2017. Great views, lots of coffee in the morning and a nice selection of continental breakfast for meat eaters. I walked to Linda Mar every morning to surf and it was a nice and convenient walk. You could also walk to the Safeway and the "world's most famous Taco Bell". I recommend staying here for a nice Pacifica surf weekend! Easy access to Half Moon Bay, Stanford, SF, and more.

“It was a perfect little weekend getaway. Room had an ocean view and jacuzzi. They got a pool as well. The Peruvian restaurant at property was pretty good. The bed was comfy, room was spacious and clean. They had juice, coffee, breakfast sandwich in the lobby. Cannot ask or expect more for the price. Receptionists were polite and helpful. Went to Winters Tavern at night, they had some band playing. We had a blast there.

“We stayed here on our Honeymoon and what an amazing view!! The Jacuzzi tub in the middle of the room is an excellent touch for your romantic getaway! When we checked in they had rose petals laid out on our bed with two swans in the shape of a heart folded out of towels. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful with anything we needed. I would Highly Recommend Pacifica Beach Hotel!

“ Stopover in SFO”

I had a stopover in SFO and the prices of hotels near the airport are crazy expensive. So with an economy rental car, and only 20 min drive you arrive at this great hotel secluded from the plane noises and traffic. And in the morning you get greeted by the Pacific Ocean. How great is that!!

My room was very big and had a nice modern bathroom. They are currently fixing up the hotel which needs major facelift on the exterior due to erosion but the rooms are perfectly fine. If you have the time with your layover I’d recommend it.

The staff was very understanding and professional with my late arrival.

Came down for a vacation and had the time of our lives! Room was perfect including the jacuzzi tub! Hotel staff were extremely friendly! Especially Julian who works at the front desk. We asked for things to do and he listed off a few and we spent the whole day exploring his suggestions and had a blast! Beautiful views of the ocean and only a short walk across the highway to access the beach. We will definitely be visiting again!

"Beach getaway"

The location was the best for a family getaway since the beach is LITERALLY right across the street...easy for shopping, dining, etc. Yes, the bldgs are a little outdated and need some repainting, etc but overall, it's centrally located and comfortable. The breakfast at the Puerto 27 was delicious (buffet style) for $7. It would be nice though if the hotel itself had a complimentary breakfast for guests instead of having to dish out more money.
Had a great getaway at a centrally located hotel!
