This is my favorite hotel here in Rockaway Beach, Pacifica, ca. The quaint shops are so beautiful and my favorite one the Christmas shop, you will find things you can't find any where else. I love this relaxed, dog friendly little town.

Best place for a weekend getaway. We got a room with an ocean view. The view was breathe taking. There are really nice shops and restaurants near by. The fitness center is very nice and also has an ocean view. What better way to start your day then to work out facing the ocean! There are also beautiful trails around... More

I booked this room about 3 months prior to our visit (2 queen beds for a family of four). When I got to the front desk they told us they overbooked and only 1 king bed room was left. I told them this was unacceptable and would not work. After about 15 minutes of the hotel lobby clerk on the... More

We booked via a third party agent and found out that they booked us a day later on than we actually arrived. The receptionist was really nice and understanding. We had an equally good room, only was more expensive that we originally booked for. The view was great, almost breath taking at times. It was great to chill out and... More

We had many people staying here for a family function. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The ocean views including the sounds of waves crashing was the key experience. Within walking distance to shops services and other restaurants not to mention the fun bowling alley. Just wish the staff had someplace else other than the parking lot to take... More

This was the perfect location for a relaxing 3-day Craft Retreat. Right on the water. Plenty of time to relax and unwind. The setting and view unbelievable. Had a few hiccups, but all in all, I'm ready to go back.

Quite hotel on the sea side, to rest after a long trip (coming from Paris). Restaurant very chic with a great view on the beach, Room ok, standard and basic. Price a bit high for the overall. But helpful people.

Lovely view from our hotel balcony. Isolated on a Pacific Ocean cove just minutes away from SFO. A really good restaurant on the property with other restaurants close by. Drift off to sleep to the sound of ocean waves rolling (sometimes crashing) on to shore.

Nice older hotel with a very good restaurant in the same building. Perfect location right on the beach. We had a partial view of the ocean, but still had the wonderful sound of the surf. Ocean-view rooms available. The room is very large and bed is comfortable. The only negative was the carpet is stained and in need of replacement.... More
