The Beach House Hotel Half Moon Bay

"Fun Beach Stay"
We really enjoyed this hotel. We vacationed with our family of four, (2 kids, 6 & 8 yrs old) and another couple we have been friends with forever(they stayed on 3rd level, Penthouse). We had an ocean front view on the 2nd floor which was fantastic! We stayed the Aug. 23rd weekend. A lot of the schools had already started so it was fairly kid quiet. The fog horn which sounds about every 5 seconds did not bother us at all. We even slept with our balcony door open at night and didnt hear it. Quiet hotel rooms overall. We did pick up some wine and cheese at 5:30 each night. The white wine I had was good. But, I think they could have offered some plates, instead of napkins for the cheese and a real knife instead of plastic. Breakfast was a good selection of homemade baked goods; muffins, coffee cake, danish, bagels/cream cheese, coffee, milk and juice. The selections varied according from day to day. Kids and our friends enjoyed the pool and hot tub spa. I like how they were separated from each other with a fence surrounding each. Views from patio/swim area were wonderful. The area was close to other areas. There is a walking path behind the hotel that will take you to other restaurants (Barbara's Fish Trap which we enjoyed) and Half Moon Brewery which I would NOT recommend due to service and food quality. Overall enjoyable stay and would recommend to anyone looking for a beach get-away.

Cypress Inn On Miramar Beach

"Cypress Inn, a beautiful getaway."
The Cypress Inn is located right on the Pacific where you could literally walk for miles in either direction. The staff is exceptional and very willing to share their knowledge of the surrounding area. The breakfast was always satisfying and the late afternoon wine and hors d ouvers were filling with a dessert surprise every evening. We would certainly return in the future.

Stayed here for the second time and mentioned in the reservation that it was my wife's birthday. She received special attention and gifts both from the hotel and Navio restaurant. Staff are very friendly and go out of their way to provide extra service.

This hotel was very different from what we used to staying in. It was very charming. Sharing a bath and shower wasn't as bad as think it would be. It is very centrally located and you can't beat the price. You park the car in the garage and never have to move it again. The staff was amazing!! I would definitely recommend it an stay there again.

    San Francisco Beach Hotel Guide

    You envision yourself in the heart of a bustling downtown, the vague scent of fresh chocolate lingering in the breeze. You pass a street cart in a yummy part of town: Is that dim sum you see being served to tourists and locals with contented smiles? Yet, as much as you wish for a vacation filled with excitement and the frenetic buzz that can only be found in a major city, you also long for a lung full of sea air and the chance to eat your dinner with a dreamy water view. When someone here tells you to “Go fly a kite,” you take it as a compliment and head straight for Ocean Beach on the west side of the city. You’re in San Francisco, where you’re bound to leave your heart and gain a few shopping bags worth of vintage clothing. Book a room at one of our San Francisco beach hotels, and you’ll have the best of California with scenic coastal views and a thriving metropolis all in one place.

    Where are the best beaches by San Francisco?

    With a nickname like City by the Bay, you can bet your bottom sand dollar that San Francisco has lots of beachfront worth exploring. Whether you want to surf or sunbathe, San Francisco hotels on the beach give you easy access to some of the best coastal landscape in NorCal.

    • East Beach: Also called China Beach, this Pacific Heights stretch of sand has shallow waters perfect for playing and summer lifeguards. It also boasts a splendid view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
    • Baker Beach: Come early in the morning and enjoy views of the Marin Headlands and watch sea lions wade off shore. By evening, low tide is the right time to search for starfish or build a sand castle. The north side of the beach is clothing optional.
    • Aquatic Park: This beach is in the heart of the city. Grab a bread bowl filled with soup and walk over to the sand, where you can dine with the salty breeze. The sand is soft and the water is calm.

    What are the best restaurants in San Francisco with a view of the water?

    When the lunch or dinner bell rings but you can’t tear yourself from the water—you don’t have to. Head to the Embarcadero or Fisherman’s Wharf and find a table near the window. At La Mar at Pier 1 ½, Peruvian fare will delight your taste buds. Meanwhile, The Franciscan Crab Restaurant at Pier 43 ½ has flashy neon décor and roasted crab with garlic sauce so good you may shed a tear.

    You don’t have to decide between the sweet benefits of a trip to Ghirardelli’s and a quiet walk on the beach at sunset. The best of city and sand unite in San Fran. Let the quirk of Haight-Ashbury call your heart to sing and the vibrancy of Chinatown leave you awe-inspired. Then stay at one of our top San Francisco beachfront hotels, like the Omni San Francisco Hotel or Hotel Diva and live in the lap of luxury for a while.
