Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Pacifica

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Pacifica itself is a bit shabby. I think HIP is probably the best game in town. Looks like they are working on an expansion, so in 1-2 years it will be the best. Carpets could use a cleaning. Toilet seats could be replaced. Staff is great. Breakfast is great. Parking is as about as good as it could be. Amenities came in handy, e.g. fridge, microwave etc. Quiet at night.

We booked this hotel for a weekend getaway near San Francisco. It's in a nice location and the hotel is clean and nice but was under renovation so it's a bit noisy and the ambiance is disrupted with dirt and heavy construction equipment. I booked the hotel and paid for it through Orbitz. When I got there, I left a credit card for incidentals as is customary when checking in. The room was left clean and a week later, I found out I was charged again for the room. I called the hotel and they confirmed there were no "incidental" charges but told me I had to speak with corporate. I was transferred to corporate and they told me they couldn't reverse the charges and I had to speak with the local hotel. Back and forth I went wasting my time. I ended up disputing the charges with my credit card company. BEWARE, they will charge you twice!!!

Sunsets and whale watching right off the patio. The staff was beyond friendly and pleasant, they made us fill at home. Rooms were clean and breakfast selection was plenty. Great place to relax after exploring San Fran without having to stay in the city. Highly suggest staying here instead of the city.

We stayed 5 nights in an ocean view suite. I highly recommend this hotel. The view, staff, breakfast and cookies were awesome! The staff was really helpful with directions and close enough to use BART transportation into the city everyday. We saw whales and surfers and the sound of the waves from our room was awesome. The little village was next to our hotel with shops and food. Close to the airport.

We were sitting on the back patio and saw whales very near to the shore. The room was nice and was equipped with a refrigerator and a microwave oven. The staff was awesome very kind and very helpful. There's a free weekend shuttle. Great hiking up and down the shore. A local bus will take you to the BART station. The visitor center is a few steps from the hotel. I would stay here again.

Awesome and romantic trip! Hotel was very clean and staff was super friendly. GORGEOUS views and nice walking trail by the ocean. We will most definitely be returning here for our next San Fran trip!

Staff was excellent and friendly. Location convenient and the rooms were very clean!

Location, location, location! Nice views, great staff, free parking and decent interior. Price-quality: very good!

We choose to stay in Pacifica while visiting San Fran area and was a good choice. Allowed us to avoid paying the high rates of downtown hotels and avoid the SFO airport area. The Holiday Inn express is located at a very scenic oceanfront location next to Rockaway beach. Much nicer than the bay side. Room was clean and breakfast was decent. Would stay here again.

We only stayed one night but the room was very nice and the staff was very pleasant. The breakfast provided was varied and perfect for our family. Hotel is right next to the ocean and the view was lovely.

Our stay in Mid-May was very enjoyable. We had a second floor ocean view room, whiere we saw some spectacular sunsets! The staff was very friendly and helpful. They had a full breakfast bar which was a plus and it saved us some cash. I would stay here again!

The staff was super friendly and very accommodating. I would defiantly stay there again,. nice complementary breakfast and very quiet and clean. Sweet location right on the beach.

We were very happy and satisfied with this hotel. The breakfast was great,the rooms and bulding were very clean.Having the newspaper at the door in the morning was an added pleasure. The staff were all very nice and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to others.

After a long search on the I decided to stay at Holiday in express Pacifica. I had never been to California, so read lots of reviews before I decided to choose the hotel and location. This hotel is an excellent choice if you are on vacation at San Francisco. It's about 10 to 15 miles from the city and airport. I didn't want to leave in the city so decided to stay at this place. It's a convenient location if you want to stay on the beach and away from the city. We drove to city to visit places like pier 39, took a ferry ride - parking is cheap $10 per day in San Francisco for whole day. The hotel is located right on the route 1 - you can drive on route 1 south to half moon bay, Santa Cruz, Monterrey bay and even LA. We didn't go to Yosemite park but it's about 4 to 5 hour drive - east of the hotel. At night - you can hear the sea waves, in the morning you can walk along the bay after a nice continental breakfast. Hotel staff was very friendly and efficient - they pay attention to every small need. We stayed there 6 nights in their ocean view - jacuzzi suite. It was worth every penny.

The staff was helpful and friendly, the room was comfortable and clean, and the location is beautiful and convenient. Good value. I will stay there again.

Having breakfast next to the ocean was great. The trails next to the ocean and the beach was also great.

Enjoyed having breakfast and walking next to the ocean any time of the day.

Having breakfast next to the ocean was great. Also the walking trails and beach area was great.

Beautiful location on the water! Close to dining and gas!

Stay an extra day and enjoy the ocean. Wish I could have! Room was great, all clean, staff helpful. Liked the small garage..easy entry to hotel. Easy to find. Would stay again
