The hotel was nice being close to the beach.

Posted Sep 19, 2016
Pros: The location was not far away
Cons: Free breakfast would be nice.
Location: Went to try the clam chowder at Sam's. Great.
The tide pools were great to stroll around. The location to the ocean and beach was great. Lots to see around the beach area and the town is close by.

No air conditioning, dirty rooms, old and dirty

Posted Sep 18, 2016
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Tear down, start over, install air conditioning.
Had to wait over an hour in the hot, muggy, lobby for a room at 3pm in the afternoon. Finally got into a hot, muggy, room after 4pm. The room didn't feel clean. The bed sheets didn't seem new. No restaurant in hotel. No mini-store available for supplies or drinks or snacks. Took and hour to get a boarding pass printed on hotel computer/printer. Wasn't functioning properly. Absolutely disgusting to stay there overall. Very disappointed. Nasty.

Overpriced

Posted Aug 16, 2016
This was the only hotel we had any issues with during our weeklong stay in california. It was so expensive for the cramped room, view of a parking lot and so much noise I had nightmares both nights there. Sadly it was the only hotel we booked more than 1 night for since I thought it would be the most relaxing. We used it as a jump off point to drive to Napa and San Francisco

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts about your stay at The Beach House. I am so sorry to read that the value of your guest room did not meet your expectations. Our Standard and Partial View rooms do have some road noise, whereas our ocean facing rooms do not. Perhaps in the future that would be a better fit for you. Thank you again!

Thank you for taking the time to share a bit about your stay. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the weather. Summer months tend to be foggier for us here on the coast. The sun likes to come out around October/November. Thank you

Nice, quiet, small hotel by the beach

Posted Jun 23, 2016
Pros: Right by the beach, easy access to the beach, free parking, nice size room, great bed, pull-out sofa.
Cons: Maybe add some vending machines at least.
Location: Right by the beach. To eat: Sam's Chowder restaurant is next to the hotel, easy walk. I think it's a good restaurant (by how many people I saw there).
The hotel was up to our expectations. Easy access from the street, free parking. If you get a room, make sure you ask for ocean view, the street side may be a bit noisy from the highway. But the ocean side is nice. I think every room has a balcony, nice to stay and enjoy the view. The rooms also have a decent size fridge, a small kitchenette and overall is a nice size room.
