This property looks nothing like your average Fairfield, I can't tell if it was purpose built or a remodel of an older property but it's very modern and has a near oceanfront location in Pacifica. The lobby is unusually large and has comfortable sitting, a working fireplace and even a gem of an espresso machine (that's turned off during breakfast hours presumably so it doesn't get overworked). Although I'm only gold status they were nice enough to upgrade me to a spacious studio suite with a small balcony that had a peekaboo view of the ocean. I loved the leather like love seat, the in room Keurig coffee and the large walk in shower with rain shower head. Having a balcony was nice but keep it mind it's very small. Breakfast was the best free hotel one Ive had in a long time. In addition to the standard waffles and scrambled eggs there were tasty herb roasted potatoes and cheddar cheese biscuits and gravy. And the coffee was actually really good! If weather permits there's a patio with stellar ocean views. I believe they charge for parking but there's plenty of street level for free. The beach and a walking path are only seconds away and San Francisco is a short drive (although I imagine traffic would be bad at some hours). So this makes for a good base for visiting more busy spots but having quiet time at night. Only drawback I can see is that there's only a handful of restaurants within walking distance and none looked appealing. Also the neighbouring buildings looked a little run down.

After a 6 hour drive from LA I just checked into this hotel an hour ago (midnight) with my family and we booked two king “suites” with ocean views and so far it’s been an absolutely terrible experience so I felt compelled to write this now. Firstly, the rooms do NOT look like the photos and they did a bait and switch on us that is grounds for disputing the charges for these rooms. What you see in the photos on the website is a SCREEN with a photo of the ocean which is absolutely not what you get. What you get is a PARKING LOT with the ocean in the distance. Secondly, they gave me an ADA room which I did not request and had very odd smells coming from it so we asked to switch. The front desk agent came and showed us another room and we were so exhausted we took it - a much smaller double room. I was asked to come downstairs to get our new keys, and as she was issuing them I realized “this new room is not a suite it’s a regular room” and so I had to proactively demand the lower rate - if I didn’t, she definitely wasn’t going to bother telling me! And it was at least $50 cheaper per night. Thirdly, it’s 2024 and absolutely unacceptable that the WiFi was not working. Between my family’s 6 devices not a single one of us could connect to the internet. This is crucial bc I have to work tomorrow and I need WiFi. So again I had to go downstairs (reminder it’s 12:30am now and I’m exhausted from the drive) and hear all the excuses of why in the Bay Area home of all tech companies this hotel’s WiFi isn’t working. Ridiculous. Spent 10 mins toggling clicking wasting time and finally it works, but only downstairs in the lobby, not in my room! This hotel is absolutely NOT worth the price and is just like any other Fairfield Inn off of the highway. Don’t be fooled like I was.

Response from Alex Tsatourian, General Manager at Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott San Francisco Pacifica
Responded Mar 2, 2024
Dear pk721, First and foremost, I would like to apologize for your experience. This is not the standard we strive to achieve. Thank you for the feedback, and please see the following responses: Thank you for bringing to our attention the view. We describe the view as a partial ocean view, as there is the Sea Breeze motel that is located between the ocean and the hotel. This is a single story motel. Our partial ocean views, are on the 2nd and 3rd floor which is high enough to see over the motel. As they are a motel, they must provide parking for their guests. This is the view you are describing, and I apologize that you felt this was not an ocean view. The screen you are describing is actually a Fairfield Inn brand standard, and is typically a screen depicting the Fairfield Farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. This pays homage to J. Willard Marriott Sr., who is the founder of Marriott. As we are located next to the ocean, we wanted to appreciate the location we are in. The beach is approx. a 5 minute walk from the hotel garage. I apologize when you checked in, this was the condition of the room. I will ensure our engineering team investigates this. We have a very limited amount Ocean View King Suites, and I apologize there was not an option to move you at the time. I am happy to hear our team was able to accommodate you with another room. I understand it was not the same room you booked. As you had mentioned, you are currently staying with us we do have an opportunity to have you in the room you reserved. In regard to the WiFi, we did experience a property wide outage on 3/1. This was resolved to my knowledge on the same day. I apologize that the WiFi, was not working for you. I am happy to assist, as you are currently staying with us. Lastly, please do reach out to myself so that I may assist you. I am happy to speak with you, and work on a resolution. Once again I apologize this was your experience, and this is not the experience we strive to achieve for our valued guests. I hope you do reach out, so that I may work with you on a resolution. I look forward to hearing back from you.

The Fairfield Suites in Pacifica appears to be the best hotel in the immediate area of Pacifica/Daly City. It is conveniently located with a strip mall within 30 min walk , and is also only a 5 minute walk to the beach. The rooms are spacious - we booked a room with 2 queen beds on the 2nd floor. Note that our room did not have a safe. There’s a coffee machine with pods for you to use but no kettle ( might be able to ask for one?) The front desk didn’t inform us that housekeeping only “refreshes” the rooms every 2 days (there was no nite in the room either) so we put our towels on the bathroom floor to be replaced after the first day. Getting back to our room that night, the beds were not made and towels were still on the floor so had to ask for a new set of towels. Amenities were the bare basics - small bar of soap and body wash, shampoo, conditioner were in dispensers at the shower area. No hand moisturizer or shower cap. They did provide moisturizer when we asked. Breakfast is included for all guests. I consider the breakfast basic - one day there was bacon, next day sausages, cheese omelette. They always had cereal, hard boiled eggs , and batter for you to make your own waffles. Parking is available for a fee or on the street for free. There was a laundry room but I didn’t need to use it so can’t comment on it. Overall a pleasant average hotel and would likely come back if we have to go to San Francisco again

Hi 534kd - thank you so much for being our guest. We are delighted that you had a great stay with us. We apologize about the miscommunication regarding the housekeeping service. We had signs up for our guests however we are in the process of revamping the service and information and apologize it was not communicated properly. We certainly understand about amenities and your concerns. Marriott and Select service brands have moved away after covid from just having items sitting in the rooms that become a touch point for guests and to simplify the designs. ALL amenities are usually available (shower caps, lotion, etc.) by request now and typically complimentary. California is also moving away from single bottle waste and most counties require hotels to have available but not out as they would need to be replaced after each guest regardless of use which creates more waste and plastic in the environment. Fairfield is one of Marriott's eco-friendly sustainable brands. We are always happy to assist guests and off anything we can with just an ask. We hope to welcome you back soon to the area to enjoy the ocean and great food soon. Thank you again for this great feedback and the comments.

This is a clean, well managed hotel near the ocean. Beautiful breakfast bar. Coffee all day. We moved out of a hotel in Palo Alto that had terrible problems. The manager was gracious and kind at getting us in with short notice. I am sitting now listening to the waves, wife relaxing, granddaughter on her iPad. We would 10/10 come again.

The modern hotel is located in the lovely and charming community of Rockaway Beach in Pacifica. We have made this our go-to hotel to be near San Francisco yet feel a world away. It’s close proximity to the beach, trails and the sound of pounding waves provides such a peaceful respite. The breakfast at this Fairfield was extremely generous in its wide selection of choices and the breakfast room provides a lovely view of the beach cove. The hotel is super clean as was our room and we noticed a battalion of housekeepers throughout our stay. I have to add that our shower was what I’d call a “religious experience!” Disappointedly, the Fairfield charges $10 for underground parking but they offer free street parking just outside the entrance. Annette was always such a delight at the reception desk with her infectious smile and friendly demeanor during our recent stay 10/26-29 (Manzano). Heather, the Manager, handled an issue we had with profound professionalism and courtesy it’s not a wonder the staff are attentive to providing great customer service to their guests under her leadership. Heather and Annette are just another reason for our return next time!

First off, it's great to have a Marriott property on the SF Peninsula coast that isn't the Ritz-Carlton (which is wonderful but an expensive indulgence)! The hotel is easy to get to, and being only 18 months old at the time of this review, is in wonderful shape with NO signs of wear and tear. The staff were very courteous and efficient, and the location is unparalleled. We paid the $10 for the covered parking, but it's probably not necessary unless it's summer and the sun is blazing. It was lovely to fall asleep to the sound of the waves, which are literally steps away. Would I stay here again? Yes. That being said, there were some glaring problems, many of which have been noted in previous reviews. Housekeeping tapping on the door at *9* am? To be fair, we didn't have our "Do Not Disturb" sign out, but even with an 11 am check-out time -- don't make the mistake of thinking you can stay until noon! -- 9 am is far too early to trying to turn the rooms. And the slamming doors? They need to have an expert come and adjust the pneumatic actuators, because heavy fire doors are slamming ALL DAY, and each time they do, it sounds like a bomb going off, and the structure shivers like it's made of saltines. As I indicated, this is a new property, and they are likely still working out the kinks, but the sooner the better. I wish them luck, so our next stay is even more pleasant!

Deceptive Hotel Practices - I booked a room for the wrong date. When my son arrived on the intended date, I was told by the front desk that the "No Show" room charge would be waived and that, at a slightly higher rate, they had an Executive King room available for the night I originally intended to book. Since I was told the previous night's "No Show" room charge would be waived, I went ahead and booked the Executive King room. I asked when the "No Show" room charge would drop from my credit card and was told it would take a few days. Later in the week I noticed that both room charges were applied to my charge card. I called the hotel and was told a completely different story by the Manager. She stated that they do not waive "No Show" charges. Keep in mind, I did not bring up waiving the "no show" room fee to begin with. This was mentioned to me by the Hotel's front desk, and it was deceptive. If I knew, in advance, that the "No Show" room charge would have to apply (in addition to booking another night for the Executive King room), I definitely would have taken my loss for the "No Show" fee and booked that 2nd night at another hotel in the immediate area. Afterall, this was on a Tuesday and there were rooms available elsewhere for a lot less. I'm still hoping this deceptive hotel practice will be addressed so that it does not happen to anyone else in a similar situation.

Hello Culture655685. We are sorry to hear that your experience was unsatisfactory. You spoke to a manager the week prior confirming reservation and details of your son's arrival. To ensure your son would have a seamless hotel arrival experience we did not cancel his reservation (as we didn't receive indication to cancel) and a no show charge was indicated. Staff spoke to you and mentioned the hotel policies of a no show charge is non refundable and that any questions or concerns need to be directed to a manger. The manager confirmed hotel policy. We are sorry this resulted in a nonrefundable no show charge as indicated by Marriott's room rate and policies at the time of booking. Our staff's goal is to give excellent service to all guests and we are sorry that your no show charge gave you an unpleasant experience with our hotel. Thank you for your feedback.

Oceanside, California51 contributions100 helpful votes
We stayed at this hotel over Labor Day weekend while visiting our son. We arrived at night, so were pleasantly surprised when we awoke, and saw the beautiful ocean view. The free breakfast was excellent and the staff restocked items as they ran low. Our room was big, clean, and oddly shaped. It really could have benefitted from a loveseat in the room. From the hotel, you can easily walk to multiple hiking trails and the beach. Also, in front of the hotel, across the street, you can catch the bus to the Bart Station for an easy ride to the city. Word of advice.....don't pay $10/night for super tight parking under the hotel. The spots directly in front of the hotel are free.

One night stay on trip down the coast. Very nicely decorated, clean, newer hotel. We were in a junior suite with very comfy beds and pillows. Room had nice view of ocean (and part of parking garage). Breakfast was good with ample hot items (pancakes, waffles, eggs, potatoes, sausage) and situated in a light bright open room facing the ocean with outdoor seating as well. I would definitely stay here again - it was a pleasure!
