Historical Traveler Reviews Old Thyme Inn Bed and Breakfast Half Moon Bay

Loved it!!!!!!

from

My daughter and I recently stayed here and I can't praise Kathy and Rick enough, they took special care to ensure that their guests are comfortable and provided special bath products, high quality bedding, a wonderful library of movies (which you may watch in your room) wine and cheese in the evenings and marvelous breakfasts perpared with care by Kathy, who took time to prepare special meals for me to meet a dietary requirement. The Inn is located right on Main Street and there are shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. We felt like we were very special and I can't wait to have an opportunity to return.

The Garden Room

from

Imagine traffic at a stand still at 7:00 on a Sunday night. You're exausted and frustrated along with everyone else standing outside their car. Who knows how many hours it will be before you get home! Everyone is upset. But suddenly out of the corner of your eye you notice some happy go lucky fellow strolling across the road. He then disappears into a beautiful old victorian home. You look at the sign above and it reads "Old Thyme Inn Bed and Breakfast". And you think to yourself "would'nt that be nice!". Yes it was because I was the fellow crossing the road! Traffic like that is unusual in the small town of Half Moon Bay but, with the current heat wave hitting California, everyone had the same idea of going to the coast for the weekend. My wife and I were in that traffic but decided to make lemonade out of lemons. So while everyone else was waiting in traffic, my wife and I were in "The Garden Room" sitting in a hot tub with a glass of Champagne while our new born son slept in his cradle. The air was filled with romantic music and the scent of bath salts. As our eyes grew heavy we seemed to float over to the bed which felt like a cloud of feathers. On this day it was as if we found a little bit of heaven in the calm and tranquil eye of the storm. Oh...I imagine we were being served breakfast around the same time those poor folks were getting home... Thanks Old Thyme Inn

Nice getaway

from

Nice cozy bread and breakfast, but thought it was overpriced for the two nights. I stayed at the mint room which was nice but overpriced for what they where charging should probably have been 100's less than what we payed. Breakfast is very good but that is all you get no dinner drinks, wine, tea etc.. or even a little snack at night. Other than the price the bed is comfortable except when you wake up in the morning and hear the next room up before you. I give this inn an average rating because I believe the inn needs a little updating.

Nice inn but overpriced at $210. a night

from

The Old Thyme in was a nice inn but not the luxury I expect when paying over $200. It was comfortable but there was quite a bit of street noise, the furniture in our room and the carpet looked shabby. There is also very little sound proofing between rooms. I would have been okay with all this at about $100 LESS A NIGHT.

Comfortable and professional

from

Our second visit was as good - or better - than the first. Comfy bed and furnishings. Not too fussy as some B&Bs tend to be. Nice location for walking 2 blocks down to a great restaurant - Cetrella.

Love in Half moon Bay

from

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Olde thyme inn in Half Moon Bay, California in April. The coastal town was enough to make us want to move ! We rode horses, played golf and found local wineries to die for. As if that was not enough the owners Kathy and Rick made our get away memorable. The breakfasts were beautiful and tasted even better, they met my vegetarian needs without effort and fed my husband the meals he loves so much. The french linens and feather bed made the trip complete. We can hardly wait to recapture the love we felt from everyon there.

We stayed here last Autumn on the last night of our trip to California and found it to be charming. The owners could not do enough to accomadate us. They were very friendly without being over the top and gave a genuine welcome. The breakfast was delightful. It really seemed that every detail was cared for and I would highly recommend this Inn for anybody who just wants to relax for a few days.

Cant wait to return

from

My husband and I enjoyed two nights in the Cammomile room at this inn and cant wait to return. The featherbeds were so comfortable, the room inviting and cozy, the breakfast excellent, and other guests diverse and friendly. We found the inn to be very quiet and relaxing. Half moon bay is a great location to explore the beaches, hiking trails, and shops. Dinner at Pasta moon is great!

Beautiful, But Noisy

from

My husband and I stayed here overnight to celebrate

our aniversary. We stayed in the Rosemary Room on the first floor. It was very pretty with a comfortable bed with lots of puffy pilows and a spa tub. The only problem was it was noisy! We heard street noise all night, including people shouting on the sidewalk out front. Also, our room shared a wall with the dining room and we were woken up early. The

breakfast was good and served beautifully, but sharing the table with the other guests was miserable! No one was friendly and the hostess did nothing to fill the akward silence. I have stayed at other B&Bs where this was not a problem. If you stay at the Old Thyme Inn, request an upstairs room.

Excellent Inn

from

This Inn and Half Moon Bay are a wonderful place to spend a quiet weekend. The whole house is charming and perfectly kept. The rooms and garden are beautiful. The linens and other amenities are definitely above average as is breakfast. Rick is very helpful at finding dining to suit your taste. You can't go wrong here. We hope to return again.

San Francisco Trolley Car...

... SF is hilly. Very hilly. The return walk was not without challenge as the youngsters complained of the aches and pains in their fragile young bodies as they noisily whined with each ascent. We took a brief break to look down Lombard street which appears to be a city planner's idea of a practical joke. Like a trail you might expect to climb up a mountain pass, this road zig zags down a steep hill. People queue to drive down it ...

San Francisco

San Francisco I was very excited about the trip to San Francisco! I had planned to work here for a summer during university but instead ended up working at a summer camp in Massachusetts instead so it was good to finally get here! On our first morning we went on a walking tour of the city. It was good to find out a little more about the city and to get on bearings on where everything was. An afternoon of just walking about the city with a ...

Today, I leave LA for San Francisco. Up at 6am and finish packing. Took the train to Union and picked up a bus called the LA Flyaway which takes you straight to LAX. Really easy. Got there with plenty of time to spare.

The flight was delayed for about 30 minutes. Enough time to try and find a toilet and ended up getting lost. I had turned the wrong way when I came out. I have lost count how ...

... been worn as a top and a cardigan and a scarf. The sarong has mostly been worn as a scarf but in many different ways (I like to play with it) and also a skirt on laundry days.

The wardrobe has been more than sufficient at the moment, but it has been fairly cold, and our clothes mostly can bare wearing for more than one day.

My $20 boots (which were to hold me over till I got my Western Boots from San Diego) died on the way to San Francisco. Because ...
