This hotel was very clean and the staff was kind, however the location really pushes it over the edge. Incredible views from many rooms and while enjoying breakfast. Fun jogging trails following the coast going in both directions. Grilled crab sandwich at Nicks next door was as good as they advertise. Have fun!

This hotel has the best view, nicest staff, and clean rooms. They offer complimentary drinks and snacks all day. I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gmr11 Great Spot on the Ocean (Pacific)
What a nice surprise! The hotel in Pacifica was beyond my wildest expectations. I picked it because it looked like it was on the ocean.
And the upgrade of my room to the jacuzzi ocean-view room made my stay incredible. I woke up to a surprisingly unfoggy view of the Pacific and then walked a short very distance to the beach.
Then I was off to a fairly quick drive to Mountain View. So instead of staying in busy Mountain View, the Pacifica Holiday Inn Express is an awesome selection.
The staff was very helpful and friendly.
The breakfast was only fair.
But all in all I will come back whenever I am in the Bay area.

My first choice over staying in any of the overpriced and overrated SF hotels. This hotel is a much better alternative. I prefer to stay here than in SF when I am there on business. It's a short drive to SF and is in a beautiful location. There are some beautiful scenic walks that you can take right next to the ocean. You can't beat it.
The staff are very friendly and always make you welcome. The rooms are always clean and I always enjoy a great nights sleep here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Road/ Air Warrior Best Holiday Inn Express anywhere
As a 20+ year road and air warrior I've stayed in well over a thousand Holiday Inn properties. The Holiday Inn Express Pacifica is by far my favorite. The location is unbelievable sitting above the waves on the beach. The deck looking out at the bay is a wonderful place to unwind. A walk on the beach talking to fishermen, couples, surfers and retired locals is an escape from travel reality. The owner or manager, not sure which, is very nice and remembers you from a stay 6 months ago. Rooms, food and amenities are at or above Holiday Inn standards. If you're a platinum member and get upgraded to the balcony room, it will shock you how nice it is. It feels like a vacation even though you may be headed in town for business. Can't wait to go back. - Road/ Air Warrior, NC

Booked my room through the IH app. Great service upon my arrival, nice view of the ocean. The room was very large and very clean. For the price paid, this was one of the best Holiday rooms for the value I have stayed in and I travel the entire US so that says something.

This is our second visit to the Pacifica Holiday Inn. We were visiting family close-by. Employees were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay again when in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mrsbigrick Loved the view
from the moment we arrived Vijay made us feel as if we were the most important guests there. He greeted us each and every time we came and left during his shift. We arrived Christmas Day and he telephoned some local restaurants to see what our dinner choices would be. We were also told we had been upgraded to an ocean view room which couldn't have made me happier. Derek was also very helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was very nice and the service very good. Seemed as if they were constantly replenishing the items so that it looked as if nothing was ever taken :)
Our stay was very nice. I would totally recommend this motel to my friends and family if they were visiting the area. It was close to the airports and an easy drive into San Francisco

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Picky Visitor Return Often
This was my fifth time staying at this Holiday Inn Express over the Christmas days and it was outstanding. The facility is spotlessly clean, well maintained, and conveniently located. Staff is gracious and helpful.
I have stayed at Holiday Inn Express facilities all over the country and this one is always at the top of the list. It has been consistently excellent since my first stay there.
I had difficulty booking this time because using the internet kept indicating that no rooms were available on my selected dates. I actually had booked another facility based on this information, but had someone who lives in Pacifica actually go to the hotel and they were able to book my reservation with no problem. This does not reflect well on Holiday Inn's national reservation operation, but does not reflect badly on the facility itself.
When in the Pacifica area needing a hotel, I will always use this one and have already booked for December, 2014!

This was my fifth Christmas weekend staying at this Holiday Inn Express and from year to year the outstanding excellence has not wavered. I have stayed in Holiday Inns across the country and this one is by far the most outstanding. I already have my reservations for the same time in 2014!

The Pacifica HI staff were and always have been extremely courteous and concerned as to any needs of their guests. The housekeeping staff are always friendly, pleasant and accommodating. This is the only hotel that my allergies are not effected. The staff is EXTREMELY thorough in their housekeeping -- even dusting in those high areas that frequently go unnoticed

I think the value of this hotel is wonderful. I arrived at night, left in the dark the next morning and returned in the evening so did not see anything in daylight but could tell it would be fantastic. The staff was also very helpful and polite, I would stay again in a heart beat!!

The hotel when you walk in is so clean and updated. The room and view was gorgeous. The bed was a little hard and lumpy but the overall experience was great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ThatOneChick Great location and staff!!
Location itself is a beauty. Hearing the sounds of the waves, waking up to the misty view of the ocean and overall the convenience of being able to go down for a stroll or even having dinner down at Nicks.
Staff is very personable, prompt and polite. There was an error made through booking on my reservations and fortunately Vijay assisted me the best he could in making sure I had a room even though I was told it was booked. Thanks Vijay! Rachel on the other hand is just an amazing person, may even be the reason I continue to make reservations at this hotel. I mean, who wouldn't want to stay at a place that always makes you feel welcomed?! Rachel is very accommodating, not too many other establishments with courteous employees.
Thanks for making my stay comfortable and pleasant, look forward to next time!

Excellent customer service. Upon arrival everything went smoothly, with a warm welcome and a happy anniversary wish from Derek at the front desk. Derek at the front desk was very professional and handled our small issue immediately with care. I couldn't ask for more and am very pleased with this person, location and company. I will definitely see more of you in the future!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VeryPleased2013 Great Place to Stay
Our family just stayed in that magnificent hotel for a week. The staff was just out this world nice.
The location was great because it is literally in South SF, so less than 15-min drive to Downtown (e.g. Fisherman's Wharf) through highways/freeways that remain fluid all the time.The area is peaceful and beaches are right around the corner. Shopping/groceries is not far either (2 traffic lights).
The place was cleaned impeccable. I love the colors and the design. Free breakfast in the morning. Free snacks throughout the day... and those free chocolate chip cookies in the evening are just what you need before you hit the sack.
I really thank the staff for making our stay flawless.
I have other big name hotel memberships, but this Holiday Inn surpassed them. We will definitely go back.

Clean hotel and rooms, bright rooms (which is not common), nice to have tea/coffee in the afternoon (and cookies), poor signal of wifi (often switching off from mobile). It would be good to have bigger variaty of breakfast (but what is there is standard for Ho.Inn.Ex.).

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Pacifica. The hotel is in a nice location on the beach with great trails, shops & restaurants in it's immediate location. Other restaurants, shops, trails & golf courses are a short drive on the PCH. We had a most relaxing stay after being in San Francisco the previous four days. It was a great way to end our trip.

Yes, we enjoyed our 2 day stay at this hotel. It's an easy 20 minute drive from SFO, off peak hours. There are some lovely views here and a nice walking trail that compliments any extra time at the hotel, should you be so inclined. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was plentiful and hot. However, there are only a couple restaurants nearby, but, nicely, within walking distance. Loved "Grape in the Fog" as a trendy but friendly wine and light appetizer establishment. I would stay at this hotel again without hesitation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sea667 Buddy!!!
I usually stay at this hotel every few months to conduct business in San Francisco. Each time I have been received as a valued guest. Apart from the location and convenience to the airport and the city, the hotel offers excellent service and amenities. Breakfast for me is usually a cup of coffee and perhaps a pastry. No matter the time I go down for breakfast, the items are all well stocked, area is clean and the breakfast hosts is always smiling. Only caveat is that Rachael has started calling me her buddy. Perhaps she remembers me from my frequent visits. It was charming the first couple of times but it has started to get irritating. I have noticed that she calls several guests "my buddy". I prefer that I am either referred by my first name or Mr. Jones or if she does not remember my last name to call me "Sir". Just something to bring to management's attention. Otherwise rest of the hotel staff including their housekeepers and maintenance are always pleasant and polite.

For our short stay in the Bay Area, this was a great find. Wanted a quiet hotel away from the city with a quick ride into town for a meeting, and this fit our needs perfectly. The room was immaculate and quiet. Everything in the room worked perfectly -- wifi, TV, appliances. The front desk was friendly and very willing to help when we wanted to stay an extra day. Breakfast was tasty, and the view spectacular. Couldn't have been happier. We'd stay here for a vacation trip the next time!
