“Lovely spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

We turned up without a reservation on a cool and foggy day and were immediately cheered up by the helpful reception and choice of rooms. We chose a full-sea view (through the fog!) on the ground floor which proved to be a good sized suite with terrace. The room was well equipped with a fridge and microwave and a very comfortable bed. But the best thing for me was the location: right on the coastal walk,next door to Sams Chowder House and in easy walking distance of other restaurants and bars. It was very quiet - the fog horn could only be heard with the windows open - and offered a simple complimentary breakfast which could be taken to your room if you wished. Only 45mins from SF International airport, so a good place to end a tour.

Room Tip: take a full sea view

Stayed here one night with the wife and two kids. We stayed on a Sunday night and they gave us a free upgrade. Room had a beautiful deck overlooking the marina/bay. We took our free breakfast outside and ate - awesome.

Loved the location, the staff, the view - even in the fog! Would definitely come back.

Great, simple to access hotel with free parking, a little beach and bike/walk path right behind the hotel, great continental breakfast and coffee, pool and hot tub, room amenties such as Aveda products and a fridge, micrwave, and stove top. We kayaked by walking down 5-10 minutes to Half Mopn Bay Kayak company. Everything was easy and well done. We will definitely be back. PS Spring for the top floor penthouse rooms.....

The one problem is that in the rooms on the north end traffic from Hwy. 1 is VERY noisy. There is no air conditioning, which shouldn't be a problem except that with the windows open the road noise is bad. Due to a malfunctioning heater (it wouldn't turn off and the room was stifling) the staff was very helpful in giving us another room, first floor and facing the water. We could leave the windows and door open with no road noise. The furnishings are very attractive and high quality.

Room Tip: Would stay there again but choose rooms away from Hwy. 1 as much as possible.

I was lucky enough to find The Beach House a couple years ago and have been staying here regularly ever since. It's literally "My Home Away from Home". The staff is wonderful, the views are magical and the atmosphere is so relaxing and welcoming. I LOVE THIS PLACE! Each and every visit I have enjoyed every aspect of my stay. The staff goes out of thier way to make sure you are comfortable and happy with your accomodations. There are small touches that really make this "home". I travel weekly for business and never am sad when my travels bring back "home". Thanks to the great staff at The Beach House! There is alot to do in this small coastal town and I feel like a local when I'm here.
