If you are looking for a cheap, clean motel right on the ocean front then this place is iconic. New beds, TVs etc but the rest is from the 50s. Adjoins Nicks Restauant which is simply the best 50s restauant ive ever seen and the Crab sandwich is great!!! No pretence here but brill!!!

First time in forever we weren't going to have any of our (grown) children around for Thanksgiving, so my wife and I decided to head for Pacifica on a little road trip. We love the coast and being near the ocean, so I figured we'd give the Sea Breeze a try. Pros...not only were we right next to the ocean... More

While this is not a luxury motel and cries for some love and attention (which it is getting now - being painted) , it sits right on the water's edge and you have a view of the cove and can hear the waves splashing on the rocks. My bed was comfortable and there was a new wide screen TV to... More

My wife and I just spent two nights here and absolutely got what we paid for! We love the ocean and had been planning this trip for quite awhile hoping the other reviews we had read were truthful. Well, they were, and it was so nice to listen to the waves breaking outside our window and enjoying the smells of... More

The hotel is basic but the view more than makes up for it! We got here early evening and the lady that checked us in was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and an adequate size if only staying for one or two nights. The bathroom is small and in need of refurbishing but was still perfectly fine... More

I LOVED Pacifica, CA. I specifically chose this hotel because it reminded me of the trips with my family as a child, pulling up to the motor inn. This hotel is not fancy, it is not updated (except the TV's), however the rooms are clean, linens clean, (and I am a freak about that), there are no smells, except the... More

Room was good and clean for one night stay. Could hear ocean waves all night long. Definitely needs updating, but overall staff was friendly, and an okay stay for one night on the beach. Price was kind of high for the quality you received.

Yes the motel is basic, clean room, shower could do with a redo, rooms could do with a paint, small bed, hot room, no aircon. But you stay at this hotel to soak up the location, right on the ocean, not far from the city, 2 minutes from gorilla BBQ for great food. If you stay here don't expect luxury... More

I don't know what it was about this place-- the ocean or Nick's Restaurant-- but it was one of my favorites on a long road trip down Highway 1. It is somewhat funky, like most seaside lodging, but the sound of the ocean is so nice. You can walk a few steps from your room to the restaurant, where you... More

the sound of the crashing surf will lull you to sleep. the room is good, a bit outdated but clean. this place is all about location, not about the room, definitely not about breakfast. a coffee machine is in the office and always available, at 7am they put out a basket of danish. like i said it's about the waves....
