My bed had a huge long hair on the bottom red blanket that is folded at the bottom, it also had some white satins on it and so did the other bed, we had two queen beds in our room. It was clear to see those blankets were not washed before us getting our room. This was very disturbing to my husband and myself. That is one of our biggest concerns and having the bedding dirty was horrible.
The air conditioning did not work very well and the second floor was HOT!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CACD7 View of the sunset on a budget
We always stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Pacifica when staying in Pacifica but, for this stay, we decided to upgrade to an ocean view room.
The room was very comfortable, with a king bed and full sofa bed. As we sat on the sofa, the view of the sunset was terrific!
The only two items that might be changed are the "fireplace" in the wall is really no more than an electric photo. It really doesn't add anything to the room, especially as the ocean view is so great! Also, the desk chair showed signs of wear, which didn't affect its functionality but just look a tad tired.
This Holiday Inn is smaller than most but I do wish that there was a small gym and jacuzzi on site.
Overall, we loved our stay! The staff was very accommodating in finding two rooms for us that were pretty close together. He even offered several warm chocolate chip cookies when we were booking the second room!
It was a lovely stay!

HIE at Rockaway Beach is within walking distance of three good restaurants--and a couple of excellent ones five minutes away by car. Beach access is right out the front door. And the deck off the lobby, overlooking the beach, is perfect for morning coffee or an evening nightcap. And it's small enough so you feel comfortable without feeling lost.
The hotel staff--they've remained more or less constant during my last three stays there--is simply excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by YAauthor Fantastic hotel by the beach!
And when I say "by the beach" I literally mean it's by the beach. The hotel borders a public beach that takes less than a minute to walk to. It's a gorgeous area, with a fantastic beach for dogs and families. There is also a walking path that goes up on the mountain. So you can have your beach time and your hill time! It's the perfect location.
We stayed in the full oceanfront room, and the view was gorgeous. All amenities worked well. I know it's California and beachside, but I thought the room was a touch overpriced. The breakfast is usually our favorite, but there were some stale bagels in the mix, and no gravy with the biscuits, which was a bit odd. Other than that, we really enjoyed our oceanfront stay and would definitely stay here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by christyc21 Very clean, safe, relaxing place to unwind!!
This hotel is my favorite place to stay in the SF area! You can hear the Pacific ocean as you relax in a clean, secure room. The staff is available 24 hours a day, even having makeup remover at 11 pm! Awesome place! This is my second stay here, and plan to go back for a third! Walk to beach, great dining spots nearby for dinner, tasty breakfast in lobby means not getting dressed until noon! Totally unwind here...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TG1956 Great place to stay just outside the city.
We were up to attend a wedding and visit friends. Great place to stay - on the beach and within a quick drive to great San Francisco restaurants and attractions. I recommend this Holiday Inn Express!

A good hotel, but a little pricey. Excellent staff. Breakfast was good, but you need to use a different kind of cheese in the omletes.
