There is nothing fancy at this 1960's-vintage motel, but the Pacific Ocean views are STUNNING. And dinner and dancing at nearby Nick's is a huge draw. We have come to Nick's for crab sandwiches and top-notch seafood followed by dancing a few times over the years, but this time we decided to overnight, and it was great fun to hear the waves crashing and smell the sea air. We came in winter, which I'm guessing is way cheaper than summer, since in the warm months refugees from hot interior regions surely flock to Pacifica to cool down. But this just means it's not as crowded, and oddly often more sunny than summer! So try a winter excursion for a quick and less expensive get-away! IMPORTANT TIP: Unless you want salt water caked all over your car, park in the lanes further away from the sea! The morning we left, spray from a high tide crashing against the barrier rocks was splashing all over a fancy cloth-topped convertible that was foolishly parked by the rock barrier right by the sea. Oops. You definitely feel the climate change when visiting Pacifica. Watching huge waves crash so close makes me wonder just how long this gem of a hotel and restaurant will remain with us.

If you love being close to the ocean, spend some time at Pacifica’s Seabreeze Motel at Rockaway Beach. While the rooms aren’t lush, they contain everything you need, and they’re squeaky clean. You can see and hear the waves from your room and the surf and sand are also literally steps from your door. Grab lunch or dinner at Nick’s and decompress at this delightful spot less than a half hour from downtown San Francisco.

East coaster here on the West Coast for a relatives’ graduation..we decided to break away and take a trip to the coast line. Sea Breeze is perfectly located on the water. Beach is foot steps away. Room large enough for (2). Shower not spacious. It was excessively warm that day and there is no AC in the room. Staff was friendly, courteous and also provided us with a mini fan. By sun set so did the temperature. And I slept like a baby. Coffee and breakfast snacks in the main office.

This place was great. The views were worth way more than we paid for this motel. Very close to everything but far enough away to enjoy the peaceful ocean views. Could use some updating but it was a clean bed to sleep on for a fair price.

Two PROs: 1) Owners & staff are pleasant 2) Proximity to the ocean. The property is elevated, take a few steps to the rocky edge and look down onto the ocean. There are sandy beaches close by as well. The rooms are outdated and worn, but I didn’t mind because the room was functional. BUT the condition of the carpet is unforgivable; had to wear my slippers. I get it, the environment is humid and guests are rough on the carpet. But I STRONGLY urge them to consider getting a water-proof, non-slip laminate in a nice rustic beachy grey. That’s exactly what I have in my master bedroom and it would class up the room a bit. They can change out the vacuum for a Bissell crosswave. FYI, there’s a freakin’ PUBLIC parking lot between the ocean-view rooms and the ocean. I arrived on a Holiday weekend and it was NON-STOP noise and traffic just a few feet from my hotel door. Many visitors had NO respect for the hotel guests, speeding, blasting music, talking loud just a few feed from our door. Sometimes the vehicle itself would be unreasonably loud (think motorcycles and classic cars). Monday was Labor day, it was SO loud in the parking lot. Tuesday and Wednesday the restaurant/lounge was closed so it was finally quiet. Thursday the restaurant opened and traffic picked up but the noise wasn’t too bad yet. Friday a wedding party arrived, many of them smoked cigarettes and talked loud outside our rooms. I had to close my window because my new nextdoor neighbors were constantly smoking just a few feet from my window. I’m not trying to be a ‘Karen’ but I have respiratory issues so this was more than just a minor annoyance. So no fresh air or ocean sounds from my room after that point. If you like a party atmosphere then you’ll fit right it. But if you want a peaceful quiet trip to the ocean you will NOT get that here, unless you stay on a weekday. Oh, and that restaurant/lounge really needs to mix in some newer music. Oh my gosh, I went there three times and the music was always old, very old.

You can’t get much closer to the ocean than this! If you leave the windows open you can hear the waves. It is an old school motel. The rooms are small and the walls are thin. But it’s clean, and the beds are comfortable. There was a decent sized refrigerator but I would have liked a microwave as well. The wi-fi was perfect. Very pleasant and helpful management. The attached restaurant has live music on Friday and Saturday evenings so if that bothers you, ask for a room near the office. If you want to hear the waves get an ocean front room. I will definitely be back.

Was good for a night when we landed and downtown was too expensive due to a conference. Wouldn’t stay longer as a bit cramped. Basic room, friendly owners and Ocean on your doorstep. Could do with a refurb - a bit expensive (we paid c$150) for what it was, but that’s supply and demand for you and the free market !

The couple that run this place are very nice. The inside end table tv cabinet table should be replaced/updated looks like elvis era stuff but no big deal your right on top of rockaway beach you can see the ocean on all sides of the motel. Only bad is cars park in the way of the beach in the lot which blocks the view. Nice hot showers old circa elvis but managable. Everything is clean however the carpets days are spent so no barefoot or in socks. No air conditioning so if it is on a warm day it might got warm i open the window and draped the curtains around a fan i brought from home to keep it cool inside. They have coffee and pastry so that is nice. Theres really no stores around unless you drive so i ended up at the resturants and it got expensive. It was not busy off season so was very quiet. If i were saying in that area i would stay again there cheaper than the other hotel chain there and that hotel was not on the beach. They give you soaps little bottles of shampoo / conditioner tissues . I would say bring an extention cord to run your stuff with at least 3 plugins on it i had my phone fan and computer plugged in it had to unplug the light and clock tp plug that and my apnea macine in . Everything in the area is walking distance. The motels rates are compatable to the online sites so it could be best to go dirrect with them if you have to cancel those web sites are very unforgiving i found that out when 2 of my family ended up in ambulance and we tried to cancel. It does get chilly out and misty so bring a coat or wind breaker. The make the bed and replinish things daily emty garbage cans put new toiletries.

The Sea breeze motel is an older, very nostalgic property that sits right at Rockaway Beach. I would definitely rate it a 5+ on location and gorgeous ocean views, but probably only a 2 for amenities / room condition for the price, and a 0 on guest parking -the lot is also parking for viewing the ocean, and it’s hard as a guest to actually get a spot in the motel parking area. It rates a 5, though, for sheer quaintness of local :) In the room, a fridge is the only amenity. Clean linens. Very soft towels. Slightly dirty bathroom floor. Very basic 70's motel furniture and bed cover. -nothing beachy or quaint in decor. Could be so cute with simple touches like faux wood vinyl floors instead of old tired carpeting, maybe a beachy bed quilt. Or even vintage touches. Only one electric plug in the room, located away from the bed. There was a bar to lock the room window in the open position so you can hear the surf at night and still feel safe -that was nice :) There is an old ice machine on premise, so ice is available.

We enjoyed 2 nights at Sea Breeze. As soon as we parked, we saw a whale spout water and saw several more during our stay. Check in and out were efficient, professional and friendly. The room was slightly updated and exceptionally clean. We could hear the waves only when in bed because the parking lot is between the rooms and ocean. Many people drove to the parking lot to watch the sunset. It was lovely to sit on the rocks and then walk back to our room. There are two small beaches on either side of the property. Local fishermen lined the shore, so we had to be careful not to invade their space. We could hear other guests only when we had our window open. There were coffee and danishes in the lobby each morning. We used the in-room fridge and the close-by ice machine. The beds were not the best for a great nights sleep and that is our only complaint.
