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.
We came to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary and get away from it all (kids, work etc.) Thankfully Grandma and Grandpa were able to watch the DD's.
We did a lot of research and it gets quite confusing to find a place for one night on a weekend. The reviews here seemed solid and we decided to take a risk on the foghorn.
From the second we walked in our room it smelled amazingly clean. The view of the ocean was amazing. Those that followed our recent bedbug motel story will be happy to know that I did a thorough check and there were no sign here
The bed was super comfortable and the bathroom was very luxurious. Love the soaking tub Nice to have the snack basket and keurig cofeemaker in the room plus the fridge and glasses/plates etc.
As far as the foghorn goes it was fairly loud with the slider open, but with it closed it was very faint. If you are sensitive, bring earplugs, but otherwise you should be fine.
We can't wait to return!
