My wife and I probably stayed in the room next to where "Tina TravelstheWorld" stayed, and our experience was very similar to hers. The room was not ritzy (go south on the highway a few miles if you want to stay at the Ritz), but it was very quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed being in downtown Half Moon Bay for...

I thought I had booked a quaint B&B in Half Moon Bay. Instead I got a motel room with dirty frayed carpet. Nothing quaint about it. On the website the photos represent the rooms within the main historical house. But a lot of the rooms on in the adjacent "motel". I feel this should be distinguished on the website and...

I was a bit hesitant booking at the Zaballa House after reading the TA reviews, but I got a great unpublished rate by calling the property itself and decided to stay there anyway. What a pleasant surprise. Our room was on second floor above an art gallery and not in the main building, which was absolutely fine. Some of the...

I reserved a suite and upon arrival it was up a very long flight of outside stairs. The room was tile floor and high ceilings - very cold AND no heat at all. The shower was located inside the Jacuzzi and I was unable to get into it. The ventilation vent for the fish restaurant below went up thru the...

Deadbolt was broken upon arrival, fireplace did not work, wifi would not connect, key would not open door. There was no phone to call to the desk, so for every problem I had to walk to the office. They repaired the door, and got the wifi going, and gave me a new key, but the fireplace went out again almost...

We stayed here for one night at the end of our road trip. The room in the annex building was fine and the bed was comfortable. Receptionist was not particularly friendly and didn't bother to inform us of the happy hour with wine and cheese. The large breakfast promised in our Expedia booking however was nothing like large and I...

We didn't want to stay in SF so headed straight out from the airport toward the coast - it only took about 20 mins. We arrived late at night and that was no issue as they had told us how to access after hours. Our Room was huge - 2 queen beds -and then a large bathroom with a roll...

We found this place by chance without reading any reviews in advance and I have to say I don't understand/agree with the comments here. The receptionist welcomed us with wine and snacks, showed us the room before we payed for it and was ready to answer al our questions. The style and atmosphere of this place is very charming, with...
