Day 121 - Heading to San Francisco

A travel blog entry by jayandbob

This is a top pick!

... fisherman's wharf area with the restaurants and we all went in and had dinner. We all had nice meals, it was mostly seafood but not everyone had seafood. After dinner we looked in some shops in the area then headed back to the bus to head back to our hotels. We decided on an early night so we could have as much time tomorrow as we can hiring bikes and riding the bridge. The guys got off a few stops earlier and we stayed on until market street then walked to our hostel. Walking ...

San Francisco be sure to wear flowers in your hair

... trick by getting this extra gear into our bags and then check out.

From here we jump on a hop on hop off bus tour around two different routes. The first takes us around town and then drops us off at Fisherman's Wharf where we have lunch and wait for the other bus. The hunt was on for Seafood Chowder for lunch and we settled on this place where we could sit outside and watch the people walk past. With lunch taken care of it was a walk around ...

Half Moon Bay (No Pics, Few Words, Lot's of Flies)

A travel blog entry by winterhawk

... the little buggers. We have a fly swatter and put it to good use.

The only bright spot was Patti's sister Ruth Ann coming to visit us. She lives in the bay area and we have been trying to get her to come down to the boat and stay a couple of days with us. She finally relented. Her husband drove her over the hill down to the marina. She is going to spend the night and go with us down to Monterey Bay.

Next stop Santa Cruz.

Beginning the journey back to LA

Today we had to say goodbye to our absolutely fantastically amazing hosts, the Maniex family! I hope to one day show a stranger the wonderful kindest they showed Lauren and I and our memories of San Francisco will always be very happy ones thanks to them! Although we could have stayed much longer, it was time to get back on the road and head back down to LA! First we drove down the worlds windiest street, took a ...

Alcatraz and San Fran

... for ourselves too!

We hit the road later than planned because Richard couldn’t find it his toothbrush (he had left it on the yacht). It was a knackering drive that evening. We took the 5 half way down to LA and at 11.30pm decided it was time to hit the pillow. The motel had no rooms though. Another 20 mins to the next rest area and more disappointment came when the next two motels had no rooms. Thankfully the third motel we tried had one. Phew.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Beach House at Half Moon Bay

    Mediocre and overpriced


    The hotel had a nice location and the room was very nice... but for the price, I expected something special, and this was not it.

    Overrated Beach House


    My boyfriend and I celebrated our 4-year anniversary at the Beach House in November 2004. It was our first time at this property, and because of the good reviews we read, we decided to give it a try. The first room given to us smelled very smoky, so we moved to another room, which had a broken drape lever, and a broken lamp switch. Although the bathroom was clean, the towels smelled like clorox. The worst part was, the window facing our bed woke us up as early as 6:00 next morning with the rays of the sun against our faces.



    Were able to grab a last minute reservation on a non-busy weekend, and even got a free upgrade to a partial ocean view! What a marvelous, friendly, knowledgeable staff. Ideally located, immaculately clean... everything we wanted in a room! VERY comfortable beds, too! Be aware... if you travel in on weekends in October, the drive is a CRAWL because of all the families visiting the local pumpkin patches! Even so, it was worth it to stay at the wonderful Beach House.

    Loved it


    The suites are wonderful, the staff is very helpful and serviceminded, loved The Beach House.

    Beautiful Beach House


    We stayed here for five nights (8/04) and found the room spacious, spotless and beautifully decorated.

    The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

    We loved the gorgeous flowers on the grounds.

    Our only suggestion is that the continental breakfast is all pastries and fruit. Some cereal, yogurt and cheeses would be good additions.

    Creature comforts


    We honeymooned in HMB and return as often as we can; the Beach House was a new place for us.

    Though the BH is right on the Hwy, once inside, we felt far from traffic. The desk staff checked us in efficiently and pleasantly, though it turned out that our room was occupied. Our key card was to the "Condominium for Sale" and we checked in in the middle of an open house. Ouch.

    We were well taken care of:

    Though we had reserved a partial ocean view, we were upgraded to a full view for our trouble-- quickly and pleasantly.

    The personnel also offered helpful (solicited) advice for meal choices and other logistics.

    Beach House is a relaxing and comforting space. There are more luxurious places, but you will pay for them and we're not sure they're worth it.

    Nice, but lacking amenities to earn it's pricetag


    It's no doubt clean, modern and in a great location by the beach, but the Beach House lacks some of the classy amenities desired in upscale hotels.

    Highly recommend


    We stayed at the Beach House on June 16 & 17, 2004 while I attended a conference at the nearby Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay. The Ritz was booked up, so we stayed at the Beach House. This hotel is beautiful and very clean. Our room had a separate living room with small kitchette. The bathroom was large and clean with both a shower and tub. Each room has a deck where you can sit and look out on the ocean. They serve a continental breakfast every morning (included) with fruit, pastries, bagels, coffee, juices, etc. We paid $255 per night for the loft suite (still cheaper than the Ritz). I recommend this hotel. If pressed, the only complaint that I have is the fog horn - about a mile away.

    Love the Beach House


    The Beach House is a perfect getaway--only half an hour's drive from frantic Silicon Valley (or San Francisco), but a world apart. The limitless ocean and harbor views, fabulously comfortable beds, quiet music on your in-room stereo/CD player are so tranquil...ideal stress-busters! Great restaurants nearby, too. We go often, and find that even a stay of one evening is nearly as refreshing as a complete vacation.

    Romantic, tranquill getaway!


    If your looking for warmth, quiet & comfort-you'll find it here. We enjoyed the best ocean views, tiered bedroom w/ down bedding and a romantic fireplace. Sitting out on the bacony overlooking the beach & ocean was spectacular! Well worth the price to go again!
