Excellent price, service and location. Close to the city and right next to the beach. Some construction and upgrading taking place on second floor but did not bother us. Very quiet with gourmet coffee.

I'd heard great reviews of this place so we booked 2 nights. I get that they were under construction and the lobby was not in existence. That was fine. The first clue this would be a nightmare is the elevator was filthy and the supports were rusted. When we entered the room it smelled. I couldn't quite place the smell...

I grew up in this town. I have several places to stay when I visit. However, every so often I just need down time. I have always chosen this hotel. It's simple. It's clean. It's Pacifica. I have read some of the other reviews. Re: wi-fi I personally have never experienced a wi-fi problem. Re: Unresponsive front desk I have...

This hotel had limitations on hours serving coffee in the lobby (only for breakfast). That's insane and I've never seen that before in hundreds of hotels I've stayed at. And the front desk manager was extremely rude in her "I don't care" reaction when I asked for coffee in the afternoon. This hotel has several structural, functional and aesthetic problems....

If you're looking for inexpensive, no frills, this is it. We stayed in Room 308 for the "Ocean View". Yes it is an ocean (water only) view, over the top of Nick's across the street. So no beach, shore, rocks whatever is at the waterline, view. WiFi is spotty at best as others have stated. But........ I gave it a...

This is the second time I've been to this place for business. I only spend one night so I don't need a lot of frills or fancy décor. The rooms that I have had were clean and comfortable. The bed was good, especially for an older motel and the pillow was perfect, not too hard and not too soft. The...

Connection message always saying "Unable to open up page selected". I tried all say and night and I can't get thru. I couldn't even use or get onto my...

We are all too busy, and only had a couple of days for a vacation, so we spent the night at this motel. Nice family management, and we paid the added ten bucks to ensure an ocean view, a worthwhile investment. Not an elaborate room, but the basics worked fine, and the free wi-fi connection was solid. Plenty of restaurants...

First off this is a little about hotels,com also ,anyway..we stayed here for New Years Eve this year. It was a good experience. We paid 159.00 for that night which was fine as it was a holiday. We have stayed here 3 times besides that. Fast forward to July of this year...we booked here using our Hotels.com points hoping to...

The motel sits behind another motel and Restaurant. The view of the ocean is not that great and not worth the money we paid. The furnishings in the room and bed were fine but the room had a lot of Maintenance and housekeeping issues. Pay the extra money and stay at the Best Western or go up or down the...

“Selecting the beach view rooms is worth it. The building wasn't built with ramps, however a portion has been retrofitted.”
