We did a 2 week road trip in California in Aug 2013. Pacifica Suites was far from our most expensive accommodation, but it was by far the best place we stayed. All in our party loved the freshly made to order breakfast that was included. The omlettes were delicious. We also took advantage of the free wine tasting 2 nights...

That was my only issue with this hotel - even our log cabin in Yosemite had a roomsafe - we had to use safety deposit boxes at the front desk (FOC) but they are only big enough for passports & money - nowhere secure to leave DSLR's iPads etc when out of the hotel. Other than that this is a...

We happily returned to Pacifica Suites because we had such a pleasant time there in September 2011. This time round the experience was just as good, if not better. This clean, well-maintained, quiet and comfortable motel provided exactly what we needed: a large space with two beds for three adults and three small dogs. For us, the place is perfectly...

The hotel was perfect for what we were looking for - an easy spot to spend the night between long days of driving. The suite had a nice loving room area separate from the bedroom, which was nice, and they had philosophy toiletries which I loved. Breakfast was included and the staff was very friendly. The food and options were...

This hotel was as many reviewers said-close to highway(and a little hard to spot that sign at night). But a great value-clean, mini friidge in room, with the "suite" style room, comfy bed and pillows and Delicious Breakfast to Order which kept us full for most of our days wine tasting! We were not around for the evening "wine reception"...

The location was my least favorite part of this hotel but it wasn't that bad. It was close to the beach and wine country but I prefer to stay in the downtown area. The rooms were comfy. It was clean. The grounds were pretty. It was close to a highway but you didn't even notice. I was surprised by how...

Absolutely loved our stay at Pacifica Suites for a weekend getaway from LA. We had a suite with living room separated by a wall. The beds were extremely comfy with very white sheets. The bathroom had Philosophy products (yay for not having cheap stuff that dries out the skin). The free breakfast was pretty awesome. You get a slip of...
