We spent two days at the Cottage Inn and enjoyed the experience immensely. We opted for a ocean view on the second floor which I would highly recommend. It has a gas fireplace and a wonderful view of the ocean. We opened a window slightly at night so we could listen to the surf. Very nice and we will return...

We stayed here for 3 nights last week in an upstairs, ocean view room. It was awesome! The room was big - the fireplace was awesome and the view was spectacular. The 4pm cookie hour was a nice touch that our kids enjoyed and the breakfast was just right for a good start to the day. The staff was exceptional...

Stayed over a holiday weekend. Took a second floor room facing the sea, which is well worth it if you're staying there for the location. Would highly recommend the second floor, away from the (human) sounds of the patio underneath. Whether it was a quiet clientele or good room insulation, it was quiet. All amenities worked right. Hot water and...

This quaint cottage hotel TOTALLY exceeded our expectations!! Absolutely loved it from the minute we drove in, and our second floor, ocean view room was incredible. Clean, cozy, three big windows to open and hear the sea. We kept them open all night-the hotel sits close to the edge of a rocky bluff so you can see the waves right...

This is now one of our favorite Pacifica properties. The room (359) was spacious and well appointed. The staff was friendly, professional and helpful. As mentioned in other reviews there is a great overlook of the coastline with access to the beach. This will be our stop over in the future when traveling north to Cambria. This is one of...

If you are looking for a break from big hotel type inns - this is the place. Feels a little back in time to the 60's in some ways - small cottage looking buildings. We booked at last minute on Valentines day. Traveling back to LAX from Fresno. The staff was helpful and attentive. I definitely recommend paying the price...
