We stayed here one night. It's an older, basic motel. We had a small room with a Queen bed. The mattress was ok - rather thin. The room was clean. The location is great, as we were visiting family in Pacifica. The Bay Area is expensive, so we thought this a good place with the right price and we would stay here again.
Coffee is available in the office in the morning with powdered creamer. Would prefer real milk.

Room Tip: We opted to pay $10.00 for an ocean view (an upstairs, ocean facing room that looks out over another...

We had no idea that San Francisco would be so busy during our visit and found ourselves scrambling to find something affordable and nearby. A visit to TripAdvisor helped us locate the Pacifica Motor Inn in Pacifica CA. The hotel is older and somewhat sparse but the room was clean, bed comfortable and the staff friendly - all we needed to make us feel lucky to have found the place. The area is beautiful and close enough to the Bay Transit that we could drive a short distance to take the 20-25 minute train ride into San Fran. We were happy that we found the Pacifica Motor Inn.

Stayed Sun/Mon night. The motel is older but reasonable well kept and our room was clean. The WiFi was complementary. There was also coffee and in the lobby along with some packaged danish (would be hard pressed to call it a continental breakfast). Our toilet was rather old and did not flush well.

The location is nice...steps from a beautiful beach. There is also a restaurant next door (Nick's) that had good food but sketchy service. There are a couple other dining options within walking distance that we did not try but would have if we had stayed longer. The room did have a microwave and a refrigerator which we made use of.

I am satisfied with the hotel for the price I paid. I got a special deal from Hotels.com that amounted to $225 for two nights. I would not pay any more than that however. Everything about this placed screamed "economize." Two tiny pillows on a king size bed, the cheapest soaps and shampoo packets, etc. The office staff was nice and happily gave me two more tiny pillows upon request. As I said, for the price it was fine but the Holiday Inn and a Best Western are right next door and their rates were about $70 more than what I paid per night. I would rather cough up the extra money if this place charged any more than what I paid.

Booked a room on the way into town based on a quick search of Internet reviews. Either the reviewers were blind, or not from this planet. This place is Nasty. Yes, Capitol "N".
Filthy dirty, horrible room, horrible bed, but at least it was really noisy! Not the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, but a very close second.
On the positive side, it will make it very easy to get a REALLY early start on your day, as you can't wait to get out of there!

This is an old property very near the beach in a fog-prone town. It was clean. The office staff was friendly. It is on the street, but that did not pose too much of a problem. Affordable. Small.

Room Tip: Ask for a room off the street.

Not our usual spot, but the most comfortable beds around, good ocean view, quiet, would stay again.

Visited Pacifica in 2011 but stayed in the city, and decided that we wanted to come back and stay at this place which was right next to the beach! We weren't disappointed at all! The room was very affordable and close to anything.
