This was a super clean, very new looking hotel with extremely polite, professional staff. Just a short distance away was a switchback trail that takes one to the top of a bluff where stunning photos can be taken. North of the hotel are series of biking/ hiking trails. The wifi was fast and the shower was hot and powerful. The...

I have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express numerous times with my family of five. We love it here for these reasons: easy and free covered parking, healthy snacks and beverages available 24-hours a day (cookies, milk, coffee, tea, fruit), free deluxe continental breakfast, great guest service by staff, and location, location, location. My kids would often step right outside...

We found this cute little place while looking for a unique hotel fairly close to SFO (12 mi) but not in the heart of the city. Criteria was free parking, free breakfast and free internet. This popped up near the top of the list and when I looked at the location, right on the Pacific Ocean, I grabbed it. It...

Coming from So Cal it is hard to find affordable hotels on the BEACH side of PCH (Highway One) so here you go! For the price, you get a lot of value - free parking, free wi fi (IHG members), really nice rooms, pretty good breakfast (remember the coffee and donuts time of your life? with pancakes, eggs, breakfast meats....

We chose this town to stay because it was the first place south of the big city before our trip to Santa Cruz. We stuck our head in other nearby hotels that we found dated. This Holiday Inn Express was up to date, clean, standard HIE room with very comfortable beds, extremely pleasant staff, very very good well-maintained self-serve breakfast,...

Its location is fine but gives a run-down feeling. The carpet in our room had a large, dried stain. It was clear that the property had seen better days. It seemed to be in the need to some marine-quality update/renovation because marine air corrodes everything. We were given a good room which had a view of the coast. Travelers should...

We stayed here for three days. Quiet and peaceful. Far from the city so one needs a car to go around. The rooms are clean and breakfast is warm with healthy choices. Staff is cordial. The view from the hotel is breathtaking with the waves near the breakwaters. Love the place!

We splurged on a full ocean view room. It was clean and comfortable with a very nice bed with plenty of pillows. Great to sleep to the sound of the ocean waves. There was a microwave and small frig in our room. Friendly staff and adequate breakfast. They were kind about allowing a late checkout. We were too lazy to...

We were in Pacifica right on the first night on our trip down the HWY1. I have chosen it more for the closeness to the airport. But it proved to be an excellent choice. Just sitting in the morning to view the waves and the weather and the bay it's located in. We loved the stay there. Super friendly reception,...
