“It was Pumpkin Festival Weekend - we were happy to have a place to stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

Not a new motel by any means, but we had a view of the water from our room. Because it was Pumpkin Festival weekend in Half Moon Bay, lodging was almost impossible to find. The price here was fair, we could walk to the beach if we had wanted to, and it was a central location for us. It was quiet, which was nice. The parking did leave something to be desired, especially with folks who overestimate the size of their vehicles and take more than one space. We were there for two nights, were able to sleep, and would say it is okay if you're not looking for luxury on the beach.

You can tell this whole area has gone downhill. This hotel is dated, the rooms need a total remodel. I would not recommend this at all. The mattress was lumpy and caved in. They could do a little work and it would be ok.

We made some last minute reservations for this hotel with some family friends over a holiday weekend. We arrived late, but we were quickly checked in and into our rooms. The first problem we encountered was there was not enough parking for the hotel's guests and street parking was very limited.The room size was very good and it accommodated our large family, once we had the aerobed we brought pumped up. The decor was a bit dated, but the room seemed clean and in general good repair. The beds were like rock, however. Even my wife, who normally likes a firmer mattress, had a hard time sleeping. It was a long night of tossing and turning, but we made it through. The Internet access was spotty at best, even though the signal was fine in our room. I think next time we would pay a little more to try the Holiday Inn Express or Best Western across the street. On check-out, the manager hardly acknowledged me and never made eye contact. He didn't thank us for our stay or ask how it was. We probably won't stay here again.

The hotel is situated in quite a nice location, one street back from a small bay with cliff walks in either direction, and a short drive to local shops & restaurants. If you don't want to venture far to eat, the nearby Sea Breeze Motel has a restaurant.

The staff were very frindly and welcoming but the hotel itself is in need of a little redecorating both inside and out. I was somewhat put-off on arrival to find the stairs to the upper floors littered with cigarette ends and sweet wrappers - this was at 3pm so clearly hadn't been swept since the day before, but was done later that afternoon. Our room was somewhat drab and the matress should have been replaced a while ago. Also, the cleaning could have been a bit better - I don't particularly like to find previous guests' body hair in the bathroom - but the bedding was fine.

All in all, the hotel was perfectly adequate for our overnight stay but I'd probably choose somewhere else if staying longer.

Based on appearances, the rooms haven't been updated since the 70's and bring a hair dryer since the contraption they provide comes from that era as well. But if you are looking for a cheap, clean room in a good location near the beach, this is the place for you.

We have stayed at Pacifica Motor Inn many times for convenience sake while having medical care in So. San Francisco. About ten times. As far as price, it's lower than other lodging in the same small town. About a block walk to the beach. Close to restaurants and grocery store. There are a few rooms that you can stretch your head enough to see a small patch of beach, but that's it. Rooms are equipped with a small frig & microwave. The owners are nice & accommodating. The motel is old (maybe 1960's) and in desperate need of remodeling. There are cracks in some walls, mismatched paint, a musty smell, and mattresses & bedding that need replacing. The bathrooms need help too. However, if you're young or don't have problems with uncomfortable beds, it's a good & cheaper place to stay near the beach. There's single rooms to family-size rooms. I like having a "kitchenette" whenever I travel to save money on food/eating out.

My family stayed in one of their family rooms, two queen beds, could see the ocean from the room. The room was very large, had a frig, microwave, clean, and very friendly staff. It is just a block from the beach. It is just 15 miles from San Francisco, and I went back and forth to the city relatively easy. I would definitely stay again.
