Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stegre Cleanest hotel I've stayed in
Besides having the prime location in the Bay are for an ocean view hotel, this place was clean and quiet beyond expectations. I travel extensively and always try to stay in Holiday Inn Express Hotels. They are all pretty good, this one was exceptional. So clean that were not even water marks on any of the chrome bathroom fittings. I liked the cozy size of the hotel and the proximity to the beach. The room was good sized and comfortable. I liked the covered parking, that was an unexpected bonus. The ONLY downside was the lack of a meeting room. i would have loved to bring a sales team there for a meeting. Still I could house them there, and get a nearby meeting room. All in all it was great !

We lived in Pacifica for 25 years before moving to Idaho. We visit regularly because of our family and friends that live in the Bay Area. We have stayed at nearly all of the Hotels in Pacifica. After finding the Holiday Inn Express we will not stay anywhere else in Pacifica. It is hands down the neatest and cleanest hotel in town -- one of the very few places I've stayed that has not aggravated my allergies.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EastCoastPhoto awesome time
The hotel and staff at the HIE Pacificia are wonderful. I had a two week stay at the hotel and it exceeded all my needs for business and personal work. As a photographer it was a perfect location just 15 mins. to San Francisco Airport with easy access to downtown San Francisco, about a 25 min drive and easy access to PCH 1 to head south for great photographic opportunities. The sunset from the hotel beach right in front was amazing as well. The staff provided me great assistance to receive several cases from a fedex shipment and holding it for me till I returned later that day. They also provided me great assistance when I needed to have a business meeting with a customer.
The staff always a smile and helpful at anytime. The rooms very nice, clean and bright. If I have the opportunity to travel to the area again I will not hesitate to make it my first choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ForHimx8 Great Location and Great Staff
Fantastic location among the rocky terrain with access to beaches, hiking trails surfing, etc. Great room overlooking the Pacific Ocean and beach areas. The staff was very friendly and professional. The hot breakfast choices were very good. The only negatives were that the building itself is small, thus the rooms and breakfast areas are small and no pool. The vents in the bathroom could not pull out the moisture in the air from the shower so we forced the door to stay open with a shoe to keep the bathroom ventilated. Outside of that, everything was great and I would easily recommend staying at this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RoadWarrior63 Perfect and relaxing
I have stayed at many hotels for my Sales travel and this small little property out shined them all. Being on business trip I need to relax and this hotel offered me this opportunity. Very close to San Francisco and easy commute. Service and Cleanliness is excellent. I wanted to thank the manager personally but I did not meet him or her. I am sure he or she was at the hotel and blended in with rest of the hotel staff. For the few days I was there I was able to explore the area's hiking trails after work and enjoy some great food within walking distance of the hotel. Next time I plan on bringing my family and fork up few extra dollars for an ocean view room

This hotel has an incredible staff that makes you relax and feel at home from the second you walk in the door. The fresh warm cookies and inviting lobby help with the hospitality. It does not have a gym or a pool so the kids and I were disappointed at first, but the location was perfect for taking beautiful, scenic walks right close to the hotel. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was great.

Finally a hotel/motel that leaves me with nothing to complain about. Room was wonderful with a beatiful view of the ocean and beach. I paid extra for this but it was worth it and more.
Staff was extremely polite and helpful. Maid service was thourough and pleasant. Great stay. Five stars.

What a treasure of an experience...from welcome to departure, the staff's approach was gracious and attentive. Located on the coast, the inn offers walks by the ocean, outside dining in morning sunshine, and great comfort! Definitely on the 'visit again' list

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gweniewhinnie A beautiful place to say!
Lovely view of the ocean, staff was wonderful, room is lovely too, and the breakfast except for the eggs was very good. There are extensive hiking trails going North and South with incredible views. It feels safe and comfortable and clean with lovely comtemporary decor. It's not a real fireplace so don't get fooled by that. But the key to this place is location, location, location. Loved it!

San Francisco can be a real drag for lodging. This hotel has beautiful ocean views, well amended rooms and an atmosphere that is just far enough from the big city to make a relaxing and comfortable stay. I have been here many times and plan to return. I highly recommend it.

As a Priority Club member I received a free room upgrade from the basic king bed, no view to a view room with fireplace and jacuzzi. These hosts are wonder and so friendly and caring to all customers. I will be back many times to come. So convenient to BART which drops us off right in the center of the San Francisco theater district. Wonderful experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Linda37 Welcoming staff, very well maintained, and good location.
We like the Holiday Inn Express in Pacifica, Californa because it is near our daughter's home. We stay there at least once a year for a week or more. The hotel is nicely decorated and clean. The rooms are very comfortable. The morning breakfast is good and offers a variety of choices to enjoy. The staff at this Hi Ex are exceptionally friendly. We would recommend it to anyone who is visiting that area.

My daughter was in Seton Medical Center for spine surgery during my stay. It was so nice to come from the hospital at night and have a nice place to stay.
The staff was so nice and helped with any of my needs..
We were there during a bad storm. The staff kept us informed on road conditions.
The breakfast was wonderful!
Have stayed before and will continue to stay here when I am in the Daly City/Pacifica area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carolina01 Our Thanksgiving Trip Renewed.......
My husband&I have been blessed to travel the world staying at many top rated hotels,but none of those hotels can hold a candle to the Pacifica Holiday Inn Express! Not one........We found the Pacifica due to bailing out of where we were; and what we practically stumbled upon,the Pacifica,was a blessing for sure.
The service,the cleanliness,the peacefulness and the quality all rolled into one present such a totally wonderful experience. We recommend this lovely hotel for all those seeking the ideal get-away which has the best of what hotels should offer. And,what's more,we are going to make the across country flight in order to stay at the Pacifica next year! There is not one thing which we can take issue with regarding the Pacifica Holiday Inn Express. Oh,and Nick's,which is within walking distance,is a wonderful restaurant. Delicious food.
The price is most reasonable for room rates.
All in all,we were totally delighted with this extraordinary hotel.

The view of the Surfers riding the waves of the Pacific while laying in bed watching the large screen television was what we experienced after a long cross country flight. The reception we received from the friendly staff along with the free upgrade was the beginning of a great experience in Pacifica. Unlike other hotels, the breakfast foods were freshly made, hot and tasty. Only a few minutes from SF, this spot gives you both the beauty of the ocean and the fun of a great city. WE will be back!

I use to stay at Holiday Inn off Van Ness Ave. in San Francisco, but this HI @ Pacifica is a WAY BETTER BARGAIN! I will book here again when I am in the Bay area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wilson911 Beachfront alternative to downtown
With it's location less than ten minutes to SFO and twenty minutes to downtown, this location makes the perfect alternative to the hotel airports before or at the end of a trip. I have stayed here many times for vacation and to catch a flight. It is situated perfectly on Rockaway Beach with a neat little shopping area adjacent. Hotel facility is definitely non-traditional for typical Holiday Inn Properties. But the odd set-up gives it a sort of charm. All rooms are in excellent shape and feel clean and modern. The ocean front rooms are cool, but remember they overlook the parking lot too. So it is much cheaper than the downtown or SFO hotels and is in an awesome location. What is not to love?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mikey1949 Peace and comfort on the beach
My wife and I have been visiting Rockaway beach in Pacifica for a decade and a half and only recently started to stay at the Holiday Inn Express. This Hotel provides the best combination of comfort and value we have encountered in the area. The secluded and peaceful nature of the beach, variety and quality of nearby restaurants and shops, and proximity to the city make this locale a "hidden gem". We will stay here on all future trips to the San Francisco Bay area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barb1978 Fantastic Facility
We stayed several places on our trip to San Francisco, one in Livermore (Hol. Inn Exp). and two other brands. This far surpassed ANYTHING else, and the quality and value of the other hotels.
I loved it. The fireplace was such a nice touch, and having the beach right there....can't explain how thrilled I was. Being from Cleveland, Ohio that's not a view we see often. Honestly, this was the first trip that my husband and I took alone without our kids in 33 years. It was due to the recent death of both of my parents in August, that we just needed to get away. What a get-away it was.
So relaxing and refreshing. The front desk staff on our first two nights was so great. She was pleasant, helpful, and beyond welcoming. The breakfast... so great. Love to be able to have a nice hot breakfast before starting our day and not having to go out to get it. 100% satisfied. Would be nice if that motel wasn't blocking your view, but for me... didn't matter. THANK Y OU

The staff was excellent in recommedning the ocean walk directly from the hotel and very close restaurants with the Pacific Ocean views. The hotel is very comfortable and clean and their breakfast selection items were very good. It was a great place to stay the night before returning to the airport which is just a 20 minute dirve away. We especially enjoyed watching the sunset over the ocean from the hotel deck.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DiannB Very nice room and beautiful panoramic view but poor customer service
As a Priority Club Platinum member I chose this location for the ocean view. It is not possible to secure a standard room and pay an upgrade for a premium room so I paid full price. The room was very nice and the view was exceptional but not sure if it was worth the cost as it was equivalent to a 5 star hotel property cost. The front desk clerk was incredibly rude as I advised that I had requested and was given a late checkout and she proceeded to tell me that this could not be done in advance and I would need to call in the morning to confirm. I politely advised that it had been done and as a platinum member I was a frequest guest of Holiday Inn.
We went back and forth and then I got annoyed because I was spending alot to stay in this property that did not offer a whole lot and the customer service was not near the exceptional service I receive at other HI properties. I spoke to the Manager and he approved of the late checkout of 2 pm but he did not go out of his way to fix the situation. I would not recommend this location due to the poor customer service.

I stayed at this hotel from Sep. 17 to Sep.21 / 2012 -- Overall it is a great place. Right next to the ocean.
The only "minor" detail was that the room I stayed in (#105) had a weird "underarm" smell. Not pleasant.
I traveled for business and my co-worker stayed in a different room. He also experienced the same room smell.
Parking lot is a little small too.
Other than that, it is a great place.

My wife and I just spent the last 10 days traveling the west coast, and this hotel was the best stay. Proximity to San Francisco is a plus, unless you like the big city effect. The breakfast was awesome, hot , many choices. The beach location could not get any better. Only regret, only stayed one night.
