Overall our stay was just OK and not worth the price we paid at all. The hotel needs upgrading and a lot of general maintenance done on the interior and exterior. The one thing that made this trip memorable was view and the sound of the ocean. I will say that our bedding was clean (NO BED BUGS :)) and...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 January 2017

This hotel and staff were great. Desk staff were friendly, attentive and recognized our rewards status. I had asked for an ocean front room and we were accommodated with a room with an amazing view. Wish we were staying longer than the 1 night so we could have enjoyed it more. Parking was plentiful, easy access to Highway 1. There...

We are traveling down to LA. And stopped to rest for the night, we decided we wanted to stay on the beach this place was convenient and our window was right out to the beach amazing view. Don't let the hallways fool you, the rooms are clean and comfy. Service is great, no free breakfast, but there is free coffee...

it is hard to find a better location on the coast.....anywhere. The surf is incredible and if you get an ocean front room, the waves are coming right at you. The sound, as you sleep, even with the windows closed will take your breath away. The rooms are very clean and well appointed. They have sliding glass doors but no...

Hotel has a beautiful view of the ocean. However, our room had heavy black mold on windows and bad odor from the mold. Staff transferred us to another room that also had mold, but much less than the first room.

We have been coming here for years. We love it here. The restaurant serves fantastic food and the bar has dollar oysters during happy hour. The hotel is right on the ocean and the waves will lull you to sleep at night.

I enjoy the Lighthouse Inn at Rockaway Beach each time I visit the Bay Area. Many people don't know that this hotel is so close to SFO (12 - 15 Minutes) and down town (30 Minutes) but sits right on the Pacific. I stay here when I do business and enjoy staying on the ocean much better than at the...

This hotel was a great value. It has wonderful views of the ocean and a great restaurant. Breakfast was spectacular. Despite being close to everything, the feel is secluded. I would definitely return.

Can't get a better view than overlooking the Northern California coastline than the view from the double rooms with sliding door to the crashing of the waves. Very friendly staff including a microwave to pop and enjoy popcorn while watching our movie in the room and listening to the ocean.
