"Great hotel, great location next to the beach!"
We enjoyed a few days of R & R. It was too cool to get in the water, but still enjoyed being at the beach, walking and watching the kids who don't mind the cold water. Surfers were also fun to watch. Hotel was comfortable and clean, and the hot breakfast was a great start each morning.

"Nice hotel CLOSE to the beach"
We greatly enjoyed staying at this location. The hotel staff was outstanding. We especially appreciated Rachel, who worked at the front desk & the staff that took care of the morning breakfast. The facitilities were clean & the breakfast was excellent. We would definitely stay here again when we stay in the area.

"Not just your typical Holiday Inn"
When my husband and I wanted to celebrate our anniversary close to home, we decided to stay on the coast for a night. This was the highest rated of the hotels available, and I can see why. Much nicer than your average holiday inn. We paid extra for the ocean view, and were glad we did. The other rooms must have looked at a parking lot. Speaking of parking, there is free covered parking for the hotel, which is nice. Great hot breakfast in the morning, with healthy options as well as pancakes and cinnamon rolls and the like. Perfect spot to walk down to Rockaway beach for a picnic. The only thing that would have made our experience any better would have been if they upgraded us to a panoramic view room or did something nice for our anniversary. But then again, this isn't a 5star hotel that is used to wooing platinum guests. We'd come back again.

"The view"
Great if you are going to be out all day and if you have a rental car. Better Pacific ocean views than any other hotel in San Francisco itself, and not expensive at all. This is a Holiday Inn Express, therefore do not expect anything more than a very clean room and a nice but not fancy breakfast. You will not have a concierge to carry your luggage, though the staff in 2014 was always nice and helpful.

"Right next to the beach and ocean!"
Great view to wake up to! Room was very nice. We were right next to a storage room, so when we slept in later than 9am, it was loud. Not sure what all the banging was about. Otherwise, a great place to stay right outside San Fransisco.

"Great hotel, great view"
I took my fiancé here for his birthday Sunday, December 29, 2013 and I had reserved a jr suite with an ocean view, and it was definitely a full window ocean view, absolutely beautiful. The room was comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. We checked in late and unfortunately I do not remember the night clerk's name but she was very nice, pleasant and helpful, couldn't get a better employee. Great stay.

Best Holiday Inn that I've ever stayed at....easily. I travel a fair amount for business and I found this particular hotel very pleasant. The hotel staff was extremely pleasant, helpful and considerate (thanks Vijay). The rooms were nice sized and you are right on the ocean in a beautiful area. Also, quite close to San Francisco. Th amenities including a better than average free breakfast and access to coffee, fruit, bottled water, oatmeal, yogurt, etc. though out the day made the experience even more pleasurable.

"Nice stay - just one issue"
Was impressed overall with the property and the rooms. Didn't have too much interaction with front desk staff. But BIG issue was checkout the next day - we had houskeeping standing right in front of our door about 10:40. 2 housekeepers and the cart waiting right in front of the door -- we couldn't even get around the cart with our luggage when we tried to get out of the room. Could not believe it, we travel often and have been right on the cusp of checkout time many times and this never happened before. We thought it was very rude. We mentioned to the front desk and they apologized, but we still felt put out about the whole situation. Other than that, we had no issues.

Just after we checked in, opened the door our room, I instantly smelled cigarette smoke. I immediately went to the staff and told them that I was very sensitive to smoke smells and could stay in that room. They promptly apologized and upgraded us into an ocean view room. After check out we asked if we could spend sometime on their outdoor patio that overlooked the ocean. We were there for two hours they brought refreshments and really made us feel welcomed. And This Was After Check Out!! Awesome stay. We defiantly will return.

"Long Drive from SFO, A/C Very Noisy, Rude Staff"
The only positive we experience was: Room is clean and bed is comfortable. Now the ugly part of this review: The location of this hotel is extreme remote from the San Francisco Airport. The drive to this hotel at night could be very dark and the hotel is very hard to find. Parking lot is tight, every car had to shift gears/drive in and out of the parking space several times to get out the parking lot. Hotel staff smoked at the entrance that leads to parking lot. We, people who are allergic to cigarette smoke, had to inhale his smoke while unloading our luggage before checking in. Towel had a huge stain on it, A/C was so loud that it woke me up several times at night. They served breakfast between 6:30 and 9:30, we got there at 9:25 and there's nothing left. Also the front desk kept calling us when it was few minutes past 11 a.m. (their checkout time) After we took a walk in the neighborhood, we noticed there were a family of five who just checked out. It was close to 1 p.m. Apparently they had the privilege to have a late checkout whereas we were harassed by the front desk when we were three minutes late checking out! There's no view in the surrounding area unless you really like seeing the fog and some industrial equipment sitting next to the water. We were very disappointed with this hotel, especially when they charged us the price of a four-star hotel

"Clean and comfortable, but not worth the price"
The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious, but the room we had (229) had a view of nothing but concrete wall. Breakfast was OK, but for $300/night, I'd expect a little more than the standard fare with egg pucks with processed cheese and sausage patties in a tray, and a small view of the ocean (alongside a rest area). Free self-parking was under a covered area adjacent to the front desk, which was convenient.
