TravelPod Member ReviewsBEST WESTERN PLUS Lighthouse Hotel Pacifica
We were exhausted and checked in around 7:30. Got room 133. It was dark damp and smelled horribly of mold. They refused to move us till the next day. Tougher it out. View overlooked parking lot to beach.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Lighthouse Hotel Pacifica
We stayed there one night in July. The hotel is being renovated. The room was very large and clean, with all new furniture, carpet, bathroom. It smelled musty/old but we opened the balcony door and the cool ocean air helped. Our room looked out on the ocean, parking lot, and large park area.
The staff members were very friendly and helpful.
And the restaurant on site, Ristorante Portofino, was excellent... delicious Italian food, and beautiful view of ocean.
We chose this hotel for its "ocean view" rooms but ended up with a room overlooking the hotel restaurant's roof as the foreground of the ocean view. The initially assigned room had a door to an adjacent room but the door wouldn't lock, so we changed room & got a worst view. Hotel staff was not friendly. There was no continental breakfast (the hotel staff didn't notify us about it). We needed more towels but had to go to the reception area to get them as the receptionist was the only staff on site. Staying at Pacifica saved parking costs charged by most downtown SF hotels but we still ended up paying parking somewhere in SF & had to drive 20-30 minutes into town. I would not stay here again nor would I recommend this hotel.
Can't beat the view
My husband and I stayed here one night using a 50% Entertainment discount. The king room was clean and nice enough--plenty of space, large bathroom, microfridge under the television--but what was really great was that the hotel is located right beside a public beach. We had a view of the ocean from our balcony and could watch the small number of beachgoers (and their dogs) walk around the beach. There are also several restaurants and shops within walking distance of the hotel. It was definitely the perfect place to lay our heads for one night and was SO much cheaper than anything in San Francisco.
Great view--good deal
I took my daughter to San Francisco for a little R & R after her Pharmacy midterms. We spent 2 nights at the Lighthouse hotel and loved it. Nothing special about the room, but it was clean and roomy. The view was fabulous. There are some great bike and walking trails right across the street. This is a great location and good price. Very relaxing. Will definitely to back...
Great hotel for a great price
We went to SFSU last thursday, 2/19 for a campus tour and didnt want to stay in the city...we knew Pacifica was close to SFSU so I decided to try this hotel...it was really a nice place...stayed on the lowest floor across from the ocean for $99...didnt like the parking lot too much but that was the only bad thing...when I got in the room I called down to housekeeping for extra pillows and towels and I kid you not...they were there within 5 min...front desk was great...we did eat at the restaurant and I wasnt impressed...prices were high...food wasnt great and there was one waiter who continually kept coming over looking at my daughter...he actually looked down over the balcony area at her lol...but the hotel was great...would definitely stay there again
Great place if you like lots of noise!!!
We have traveled all over and stayed in many hotels but I don't think we have ever stayed in one quite so noisy. Every foot step above us could be heard. We could hear the people around us opening and closing their balcony doors. We could listen to our neighbor's conversation, people in the hallway, and the car noise was terrible as it echoed through the garage and buildings. At midnight we had to call the front desk because of all the partying that was going on out on the balconies. It sounded like the people were in our room and our door was shut! If you like noise, this is sure the place for you
Great for overnight -- local flavor
The Best Western Lighthouse Hotel was wonderful!!! It was a little more expensive than I thought but the uniqueness was worth it. Its very close to San Francisco but far enough away to relax. The view of the Pacific was outstanding and the sound of the ocean--romantic and lulling. My date and I stayed in the Jr. corner suite for about $170 and the room was extremely nice, clean and comfortable. The balcony is very small but the view from the sliding glass windows couldn't be beat. ..... the ocean and the mountains. We didn't get to see much of the qaint town with antique shops because we had to get to SF. But do go over to Nicks-- it's right across the street from the hotel. The food was great , the live band was okay as far as we could tell.. The music would be acceptable to mid age or older adults.. and there was dancing on the dance floor! Room service breakfast was good too! There a little beach (dark sand) and waterfront trails and a hiking trail up the mountain. It was chilly at night and early morning. 9/21/2003
Good SF budget option
This hotel was a bit odd in its design, but nice and convenient if you're visiting San Francisco. Rooms are pretty standard, but do have a refrigerator. Pacifica is two suburbs south of SF and right on the ocean. This hotel is in a small beach side mall. We stayed there in early June and it was foggy and chilly every day. Fortunately, we weren't spending any time there aside from sleeping. It only takes about 20-30 minutes to get from this hotel to the Wharf area. Rates here are relatively low, and parking is free, which is not the norm in the SF area. If you don't want the hassle and congestion of staying in downtown San Francisco, this hotel is a very good option. Continental breakfast is served in an on site restaurant with great views of the ocean.
We were told when making the reservation that we would be staying an oceanview room with a balcony. The room had a view on the hotel's rooftop mechanical equipment. On a good day, if you stepped out on the 2 foot wide deep balcony and were able to overlook the the equip. you might get a glimpe of some water. Enjoy!!
The hotel rooms are perfect!!! the views are outstanding! (except if you get a room over the parking area :( ) The staff works their hardest to accomadate EVERYTHING! the contanental breakfast is wonderful ! so Great that my husband and I celebrate our anaversaries here every year ( going on year 3 now). The view is the best!! and the little shops along the street add alot too!!! I would recomend this hotel to anybody who wants to take a nice relaxing vacation or just get away.
