We spent 2 nights last saturday and sunday. With a couple of our friends, we were going to San Francisco but did not want to pay over $300 plus parking downtown SF, so Pacifica was a good option.

We were looking for a hotel outside San Francisco that offered free parking and breakfast and after reading good reviews on TripaAvisor, chose this place. We were very happy we did. This is not your usual huge, impersonal, mega-hotel. It is small, quaint, charming and almost like a boutique hotel. The front desk staff were friendly and offered good advice...

Wanted a hotel out of the City and on the way to Santa Cruz - this is the place for that. It says "on the beach" - but not really - but at least walking distance, and some nice trails for walking or hiking nearby. Old fashioned good seafood restaurant next door - Nick's. The hotel was VERY clean, nice,...

I was sad that we only stayed here for 1 night. Amazingly clean and very comfortable room. Free parking and nice breakfast was a great start to the day! So close to San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. Less than a minute walk to the beach & ocean. Great Value.
