Each of our six individually decorated rooms, named after a famous surfing spot in the area, has its own unique style.
South of Devil's Slide, the first major beach break is Montara Beach, which is less than a mile of open beach that faces directly into the Gulf of Alaska and takes a constant hammering from swell, wind, tide, fog and everything else the Pacific Ocean can throw. The good news is the south winds that accompany fog and/or rain in this region blow straight offshore at Montara, so on those summer days when San Francisco's beachbreaks are gray, blown-out and infinitely uninviting, Montara can be smooth and sweet, albeit a bit chilly. During the winter, Montara ranges from deadly to excellent, depending on the bottom contour and swell direction. Many times whales can be seen, perhaps enjoying nature's jacuzzi.
What makes the Montara Guestroom so special…
Located in the quaint village of Princeton-by-the-Sea just minutes north of historic Half Moon Bay, you will find beachcombing, hiking, tidepooling, shopping, kayaking and oceanfront dining all within easy walking distance.
The best quick weekend getaway hotel we could hope for. Absolutely beautiful room with a fantastic view.It even started off amazing. Allan called us the day we were scheduled to arrive and told us our room was ready by noon, when they usually don't allow check-in until 3PM. I've never ever had a hotel do that, and even though we didn't make it there till after three, I would have loved another 3 hours there. They keep a 'journal' in each room for the guests to write in, and the things the previous guests wrote were absolutely stunningly beautiful. I guess I should not have been surprised, but over half of their guests are from the local area. If you live here, I cannot recommend this highly enough. This was our first time, but we'll be back many, many times.
