This hotel is very pretty in the lobby area but our rooms were smelling a little funky, found a small bug on our bed (which we were changed out of immediately) The funky smell was in all the 5 rooms that we had purchased for the weekend I would definitely suggest that the cleanliness isn’t sacrificed

Most towels had stains, bathroom wasn’t cleaned properly, smell in the room, bed sheets with a small stain, and a little dusty ANDDDD…they have free shuttle service from the airport to the hotel Super convenient! Overall decent stay but I might not be back to stay again for the second time Great staff!

The hotel’s proximity to the bay gave us great access to some beautiful walking trails The complimentary shuttle to the airport was one of the biggest perks, as we were then able to access the BART station at the airport to make our way down to the piers Front desk staff were very kind, and the dog treats and potty bags were a nice touch

The new, COVID-era of periodic room cleaning was well explained when we arrived, and we were very satisfied with the quality of the cleaning servicesThe room itself was okay, though below par for what one would expect of a Hilton The room decor could use a remodel as it looks a couple decades out of touch The bathroom was spacious, though the tile and bathroom vanity made it have the vibe of an industrial kitchen The windows were too dirty to really enjoy the phenomenal room, though there was a note that an exterior window cleaning was scheduled for the following week Finally, breakfast was VERY overpriced for what you get at the buffetWith that being said, we booked this hotel specifically for the airport shuttle and affordable price The sheer beauty of the surrounding area was an unexpected plus The outdated-ness of the room was more of an aesthetic letdown than anything else, otherwise our experience was very satisfactory

Henry Vargas

Had no idea that breakfast was not included after they had literally pushed it on me with no mention of price I asked if we can take it to go and she said yes Figured no big deal right?! Not once was I given a menu or told there was a charge for the Continental breakfast that was awful

Eggs were not cooked fully and the bacon was dried and too salty To our surprise a check was delivered for $56 I let the hostess know and she said you Can more than likely get it taken off or at the very least a discount Nope not the case Front desk lady pretty much said too bad so sad Not to mention the pillows and amenities of the hotel needs renovation, badly Overall not a great stay Disappointed to say the leastI’m

It’s too bad I can only give this place five stars They deserve at least 10 The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful

The location is outstanding Our room was directly across the street from the ocean with an outstanding view World class breakfast delivered to your room Although you can’t access the beach from directly across the street you can walk to it about a quarter of a mile away I will definitely be back!

Bonnie M.

WOW!!!! We stayed one night on our way home from San Diego to see more of the California coast We stayed in Pillar Point – BEAUTIFUL! Sliding door opens right to the ocean with an outdoor sitting area to watch the sunset The bed was ultra comfortable

If we had stayed here at the start of our trip, we likely would have just stayed here for our whole vacation The bath robes are a great extra amenity for stepping out of the air tub!

Dirk Mafey

The suites are SWEET Room names like Mavericks suite on the second floor is a stone’s throw from the water A short walk to Miramar beach bar/restaurant

patio on the beach Cypress Inn serves a nice breakfast in the lobby by the fireplace looking out on water Eggs Benedict one day and a nice scramble platter the next day the room was $400 but had ahot tub in the room which was a good size suite 4 people would be comfortable The ocean is literally at the foot of your bed

Great hotel, especially for Airline Commuting personnel Has a decent restaurant, however, only open for breakfast and dinner, not lunch There is a nice Diner next door, with primarily Asian food, or sandwiches for inexpensive dining in or takeaway

Hotel Staff are always accommodating If you have any issues during your stay, the staff respond immediately No 30 minute wait at this place to get something addressed! They are on it, right away! Convenient 30 minute shuttle 24 hrs to/from airport No laundromat, unfortunately Many hotels offer free or inexpensive washer/dryer accommodations, and I would love it if this hotel also offered, however, it is not offered

Erika Solomon

I hosted a family reunion here The space was great for all our events and space where we just hung out was comfortable and great The hotel staff were wonderful and friendly, bartender made good drinks

Rizsa in events was phenomenal! She was very responsive and helpful in planning throughout the year She worked with and accommodated all my needs related to my room block at a great room rate, staying within our determined budget, food selections by dietary needs, and meeting room set-up If she wasn’t available, other event staff were assets and assisted if needed I highly recommend this hotel for an event It is close to the airport and there it is across the street from the Bay that has a beautiful view and a place to walk along leisurely or for exercise

Denise Keefe

The airport shuttle was on time and comfortable The check in desk attendant was very positive and accommodating The hotel is comfortable and a great location in proximity to easy access to the airport and running paths

The room was clean and quiet The complimentary coffee in the lobby with large cups were greatly appreciated as was the delicious cookie on arrival I am making my next reservation here at the Doubletree, so I will be back this weekend

We stayed here on the first night of our honeymoon after arriving in California and I can honestly say we had the best hospitality experience of our lives When you walked into Sheila’s home you were walking into the life of what my husband and I believe to be one of the most interesting people in San Francisco, and quite possibly the entire world You’re immediately awe struck with the way the house is impeccably curated with pieces that tell of Sheila’s storied life

Sheila herself takes all of her guests on a personal tour when they arrive showing the accommodations/amenities and sharing stories including those of her modeling career and passion for fashion As if the experience could get any better, Sheila makes sure to provide her guests with a buffet style breakfast each morning, in fact she prepares the breakfast (including a fantastic quiche) herself! She even offered to transport us to the airport for a small fee when we needed to pick up our rental car We were saddened to stay in a different accommodation in SF on the tail end of our trip and all we could think about is how we wish we were at Noe’s Nest again I don’t know if there’s anywhere in the world that compares to Sheila’s space and we already look forward to the day we return to SF to stay here again

Morgan Butler

We stayed in the suite room for 5 nights on a recent visit from Hawaii and had an amazing time Thank you Sheila for the private tours and party invites You were a truly gracious host

Everyone at the B&B was so friendly and helpful Normally we want to avoid everyone at B&Bs but here we hoped to run into the proprietress and staff The B&B was beautiful and quirky 420 friendly is a plus The frittata is the bomb Highly recommended

Patricia R

We absolutely LOVED Noe’s Nest It is truly one of a kind in a city that’s already one of a kind We stayed for two days in the Garden Cabana room with access to the stunning garden and it was perfect

Definitely our go-to place in San Francisco from now on And the host, Sheila, is a wonderfully kind and interesting woman Highly recommended!

Hotel itself is very clean This review is specifically for their front desk staff who are extremely unwelcoming When I walked up to the front desk, NONE of the three staff members working even bothered to say “welcome/hello/hi”, nope, not even a smile

This was a recurring issue throughout my stay They are not even helpful, when I asked a few questions about the area and food recommendations, the front desk people could not be bothered to answer, and instead were very dismissive Given the cost per night, and the newness of the hotel, it would be nice to have workers at the front desk who make a guest feel welcome Given that its the only hotel in of its quality in the area, guests are kind of locked into receiving the bad treatment Do better Marriott, the world is too hard, can you please employ folks who make business travelers feel more welcome?

Jonas M

Room was clean for the most part, except for some funky stain on floor near toilet and on the curtains I can guess what goes on in this hotel being so near a couple pharmaceutical companies, and the lobby bar being pretty busy However I was there with my son for drop off at SFSU and that was really convenient

Food was great in the restaurant, the wait staff was really nice, as well as the front desk crew The not so good is the water pressure in the rooms is barely strong enough to wash the soap I know we’re in a drought, but jeezus, after a long day of travel it would be nice to take a 3-5 min shower with some pressure

Yvette

Our bed had fresh pee on it And when I called downstairs the incompetent lady in the front desk basically said I had peed on it lol she asked me if I wanted fresh sheets (no I wanted to sleep on the old dirty ones ) then she said she would talk to her coworker and let me know

let me know what? If I can get fresh sheets? The big solution they had for me was just turn the mattress over So either they never changed the sheets from the previous guest or they saw it and just added fresh sheets over the pee and expected me not to notice Either way it was disgusting

Rebecca Donofrio

I stayed at the Landis Shores 12 years ago and hoped when I went back to the now Oceanfront Hotel that it would be similar One look at the unkempt outside and the overly cluttered lobby should have been enough of a clue to me that it was not anything like Landis Shores Of course the amazing view and sound of the ocean is the same but nothing else is

The room showed signs of being neglected and outdated The curtains were stained and dirty, the upholster chairs were filthy, the curtain rod was rusted completely, there was food in the refrigerator left from a guest that I don’t know how long ago they had been there The Bed was comfortable and the sound of the ocean helped me to relax and sleep very well The other plus to this hotel of course is a day except dogs which is the other reason that I stayed there at the last minute when I wanted to extend a two night stay that I had had another inn in Princeton The Inn At Mavericks it’s always my first choice but they didn’t have a room for that third night that I wanted So I called the ocean front hotel left a message on her voicemail and got a text back stating that they did have a room that met my requirements But I know now that the room did not meet my requirements except that he did have an ocean view and excepted dogs I was disappointed

Jacklyn Brewer

It has the best view of the ocean But it is not clean, the beds are old and caved in, the towels were stained The balcony door was very hard to open and close it was rusted and old

Everything in the room is dated and old We had a do not disturb sign on our door and housekeeping still tried to come in, the only reason I can think of is to go through our stuff when they thought we were not in the room They also did it to our neighbor who also had a do not disturb sign on their door You can clearly hear the people in the rooms around you We were supposed to stay 2 nights but decided to only stay 1Here are the pros:They allow dogsThere is a dog park a short walk awayThe view is spectacularThe food from the restaurant is decentHere are the cons:DirtyDatedLoudOver pricedQuestionable staffNo one wears masks

This is one of the most beautiful settings I have ever experienced in my life The pictures were very appealing, but when you arrive and see it in real life, you will realize how breathtaking this place is The staff was wonderful, the kitchen was fully equipped and amenities such as WIFI and other goodies were great

There was plenty of parking, and the location is only about 15 minutes from Half Moon Bay restaurants, bars, shops and Half Moon Bay State Beach and trails The rooms were small but very clean, the beds were comfortable and the showers were always hotThe views The views are what make this place a small piece of Heaven I watched the most beautiful sunset over the ocean right off the cliffs listening to the waves crashing upon the rocks below At night, we lit the bonfire and drank beers and told jokes and stories while listening to the sounds of the ocean In the morning, I enjoyed watching the whales, dolphins, birds and sea lions while drinking coffee and be at total peace and serenityI cannot say enough how beautiful this setting is I will definitely be back regularly at least once a year to enjoy the peace and calm this hostel provides Highly recommended

Alon Knaan

Stayed here a while ago, and really enjoyed it The whole environment of the hostel is quiet, calm, and peaceful The views were great

Really appreciated the attention to making everything eco-friendly, such as the good bike accommodations, communal refrigerator, and refillable bottles of soap in shower Staying so close to other people did not take away from the experience, but instead gave more opportunities for interaction and conversation Great place!

Nicole at Front Desk was very courteous and welcoming I checked in after midnight, and our airport shuttle unloaded about six room room accommodations She was alone and handled the situation efficiently and gave individual attention

Her demeanor invited our appreciation and humor at the situationI’m happy the breakfast buffet is back The staff serviced the full cafe, bar and extra-seating area gracefully and effectively

Daniel Wicker

Outstanding hospitality displayed by all staff The property is very clean, restaurant has excellent tasting food The decor of the interior of the hotel is very comforting

Lots of space for all business and event meeting needsExcellent location with 24/7 shuttle service and a Bed that is perfect for a good nights sleepThe manager has done an exceptional job by the way things are ran at this property and the way the hotel looks 5/5 rating from me and I look forward to returning again!

Sarah McCanna

Our room’s linens and carpets had stains all over The remote for the TV wouldn’t work The bathtub drain was clogged so we had to shower in shin deep water and the grout was moldy

No exhaust fan in bathroom and room wouldn’t cool down even with the AC set to 66 so it was hot and muggy The alarm clock in the room went off at midnight on our first night The beds were uncomfortable and the fridge was full of freezer frost and barely kept our drinks cold This room needs some serious attention and maintenance for it to be a comfortable or pleasant place to stay The pool and hot tub were our saving gracebut then the hot tub was shut down after our first day there We were given a parking ticket that we had to get sorted out because it was their mistake Also know that AFTER you book your room, you’ll get an email letting you know that parking is an extra $30 PER DAY The housekeepers were all so sweet and had great manners The front desk staff seemed as though it was an inconvenience that they had to be at work It’s rather unfortunate because this hotel has so much potential If all you’re interested in is a nice fitness area, a pretty pool and a convenient location then book a stay! If you’re looking for a clean and comfortable room, look elsewhere

Tara Newton-Bailey

Right before giving us our keys the hotel clerk forced me to sign a document that read the hotel hours and quiet hours, and that if we were found to be a disturbance, or selling or using drugs then we would be asked to leave without refund I believe they’re picking and choosing who they’re having sign this form, which is indicative to discrimination The hotel is not only outdated on the outside, but the inside is old, dark, dingy, and outdated

There is a mini refrigerator, yet no microwave inside nor outside the room The 2 bed Queen Suite is very, very spacious, and the rooms were clean The restaurant provides an amazing view of the ocean You need to make reservations to get good viewing seats The food and drinks were good, aside from the fish & chips smelling horrible and the bartender using his bare hands to smash mint leaves for my whiskey sour—that was a little gross considering that we’re in a pandemic The pool was acceptable and lukewarm The Jacuzzi wouldn’t turn on—we saw other guest in it the previous night, and it was working There’s absolutely no view that is worth viewing from the patios If you’re looking for a very nice getaway this is NOT the place, however, I’d highly recommend the restaurant!

Heather Thomas

My husband & I was put on the 2nd floor room 245 Upstairs was nonstop bouncing & feet moving the entire night leading into the next morning I called front desk 3:30am for it to stop

It did for about 10 minutes Sounded like an active daycare or gym No sleep at all & the pillows were half sinking type of pillows with a spring bed that’s very bouncy & uncomfortable! I had booked 2 nights however I called front desk early next morning & requested my Sunday reservation to be canceled Front desk made me call bookingcom to cancel They charged me $22200 total for one miserable night! Crown Plaza/ San Francisco airport took us in right away very early 11am check in and we have slept like babies on real pillows & comfortable king size bed for $17200 Our day plans were ruined for due to no sleep but thanks to Crown Plaza we will have a pleasant quiet night A nightmare experience please don’t book here if you want to sleep or if noise keeps you awake The walls are thin as paper! It’s not worth $100 bucks!

Vee Kot

Placed in an oceanfront king bed room #119, just like what we paid for Upon walking in, the smell was overpowering – cigarettes and vinegar Attempted to air out without any progress

Window also on the lowest floor, facing the public walkway with lack of actual privacy if we keep the door open to hear the ocean sounds Everything inside was dingyCalled to front desk to change rooms Was told upon first call that all was booked out, then were able to get #451 two Queens even though my husband and I needed a King So we slept together on a Queen Room smelled better however we were facing all the fans and looking straight out at the utilities of the hotelNote: there are some Remodeled rooms and some aren’tOverall, we made do with what we had and attempted to pep each other up However it was a dingy, older smelling hotel, and completely not the ocean type of experience we wanted Thanks for having us, we just won’t ever be returning to any Wyndhams Just book the Fairmont next door

My family and I stay here every other month so it’s become sort of a home away from home Really happy to see the cooked to order breakfast is back Omelets and pancakes plus potatoes and sausage along with the normal American continental options

Would love to see some alternative meats offered (turkey or plant based sausage)If you can get a room with a view, it really is lovely I love the trail along the bay There are bikes for rental as wellThe pool wasn’t very clean on our last visit so that could use some regular attentionJulie at the front desk is a gem Airport shuttle is convenient

Charlene Caybut

This property doesn’t want customers who can only stay one night I was traveling for business, I am a Hilton Honors member and was staying one night only as I had training nearby The hotel refused to book me for one night on a Thursday night! They gave me the run around telling me that they were fully booked

Then they finally admitted that they don’t make one night reservations Apparently that’s a hotel “policy” now Well, that’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen from an Embassy Suites I’ll be taking my business to the Marriott down the street since they still value one night customers! By the way they have also changed their happy hour to 5-6:30 with only 2 drinks per customer We used to hold after training business meetings here and enjoyed the happy hour As responsible adults I think we all should be able to choose how many drinks we decide to have Very bad service from this Hilton property and I will never stay here again I know they don’t care that they’ve lost my business, but just a warning to others that if you need a one night stay you can forget it

Saia Halaliku

The suite we had was great The hotel was easy to get in, and out It was also within a short distance to all the attractions that we wanted to get in this trip

The room was very clean, and a pretty good size The continental breakfast was very good The swimming pool, and the sauna seemed to be very busy, and the common areas were kept Although this property does not have a kitchen, or a full restaurant

Location was amazing! The view of the ocean right outside your door and the sound of the waves crashing as you sleep was so peaceful! The rooms are dated and beds were harder then preferred, but what really was disappointing is the parking and restaurant foot traffic If you arrive in the evening it’s impossible to find parking at the hotel even if you’re a guest and the foot traffic by your room is extremely loud and often the conversations are inappropriate It was a decent place to stay for a quick trip, but likely won’t stay again

This hotel was great! From the comfy beds to the good breakfast and the kind staff!We came in to enjoy San Francisco as tourist The front desk was super helpful in suggesting things to check out and even offering the best ways to avoid costly parking downtownThe hotel itself was clean, had coffee and tea available all day and the rooms were great

They supplied extra pillows when asked The cups in the room were real glass not throw away paper ones- which was nice The breakfast was omelets, sausage, make your own waffles, yogurt and fruit The drinks included juice, tea, milk, coffee and filtered waterI would for sure recommended this hotel if your looking for a safe place away from the main downtown part of San Francisco or flying in

Vicky was so helpful at our check-in So friendly and engaging She told us about a couple places to eat dinner and everything about parking our car while we’re gone She even set up a ride to the airport the next morning Thanks for all you did for us We will stay here again Room was comfortable and slept well

Tobias Herrmann

Would give 45 if I could for the current very reasonable price Rooms very clean

Staff very nice A basic hotel/motel to stay for a day or two close to the airport Nothing to complain about basic amenities Location is about 30 min away from the city via car/uber, more than an hour taking public transport Couple of restaurants close by I know they might be bound by COVID regulations but there were a couple of things that did not really work and that we did not expect to encounter in spring 2022 Restaurant and airport shuttle not operating The most minimalistic breakfast and vending machines not working

Susan Trujillo

Nice suite, clean and comfortable Appreciated that the complimentary breakfast included hot food optionsSome have mentioned the noise from the train, In building 2, I never heard a peep but a family member in building 3 did hear and found it annoying

Bed was comfy and the location was convenient and staff were pleasant and courteous

Everything about our stay was outstanding The room was quiet and its design and layout were very comfortable and inviting The kitchenette was well-appointed (maybe add salt and pepper shakers?) and the continental breakfast was fresh, tasty and convenient

The heated pool was clean and the hotel’s proximity to the beach, hiking, town and restaurants was a pleasure We found the mattress a bit too soft, but variability in personal tastes makes perfection unattainable

I myself have stayed at this hotel many, many years ago in the early 2000s and had fond memories so I decided to take my wife for a weekend getaway and we stayed on a Thursday night in February, 2022The hotel itself is not bad The check-in was welcoming and we even were able to buy a bottle of champagne and water at checkin, so we could enjoy both on the patio and watch the sunset

We stayed in a large room on the third floor and enjoyed the view I would rate the view a solid 8 out of 10We went to bed around 9pm and within a few minutes, we both starred at each other and said “I can’t sleep” Needless to say, the fog horn runs 24×7 and goes off every few seconds What we didn’t notice in the evening became torture during the night We played spa music on our phone to try to mask the recurring horn sounds We closed our patio door and window which was tough at 82 degree temps in the room but nope, we could still hear itWe didn’t get much sleep unfortunately We let the hotel know at checkout but it’s not their faultWe won’t be back due to the fog horn

The Beach House was just the right place for me to rest and rejuvenate The property is well appointed and yet not stuffy Everything from the decor to the bedding suggested comfortable rest

Each morning I woke, rolled up the blinds, and took a blanket out to the patio to watch the sun rise – and again at sunset The experience brought a whole new meaning to “Be Still” The rooms are well insulated so there is no noise from other rooms Walking trails everywhere provided me with being outdoors and walking off any residue stress Morning breakfast was a bonus that I appreciated – good selections and good coffee! All of the staff were gracious and never intrusive I will be back, I promise!

We booked this so we could be close to the airport for an early flight and what a pleasant surprise! Hard wood floors, very clean and modern bathroom, has fireplace and really comfy bed and pillows! Free continental breakfast the next day! I had my trepidations at first but really professionally run! Women at the front desk was friendly and very welcoming!

david johnston

I specifically called the hotel before booking to ask about parking and twice the receptionist told me that up to 10 days was included Of course she neglected to tell me it had to be booked a certain way So I ended up spending 100 more

My whole point staying there was to make it easier to catch an early flight and cover parking I never leave bad reviews unless it was really bad, but I did my part by calling and got something different in person I am not someone who thinks the customer is always right but the service here deserves a poor review There wasn’t even an attempt to compromise Just can’t recommend this type of behavior Also room was nice but it was loud , rooms don’t have much insulation Just a bummer to have conversations like thatAdd insult to injury the manager leaves some lame response like give us another try! Sorry buddy that’s not a credible sorry, just trying to make yourself look ok

Nice lobby and staff, indoor pool and fitness area Nice view from the room The view was of a river like part of the bay, there was a garden outside with a gate only accessible in and out with a hotel key

The lobby was huge and had plenty of charging ports, a table for business, chairs, etc The indoor pool was nice and warm and has a handicap lift Thats the pros The cons are very hard beds, no microwave in the rooms, everything costs money including the breakfast and not a flat fee, by individual product The air conditioner thermostat is on the wall, but it runs a very old window metal one like you see in old hotels so of course it makes loud noises turning on and off The beds were so hard i slept on the floor instead Bathroom was spacious but the toilet was only about 6 inches off the floor with no rails or anything to help you up and it was in a nook, so no stretching out legs or having disabilities with that toilet So 50/50

Jason Smith

The rooms are good size and plenty of room and furnitureThere is a pool and jacuzzi, an exercise room and a couple gas grill if you want to cook something on the grillThe website says free grab n go continental breakfast, but they actually have a hot breakfast, eggs, potatoes, hot oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, muffins, juices, hot chocolate and coffee

Did some fishing right outside the building and also a great spot for a leisurely walk along the waterVery good value for the money

Rajai Dias

I don’t know why this hotel is highly rated! It’s an old residence inn that needs a lot of updating! Our room needed a lot of TLC! We got a double queen suite for the night Beds were ok for comfort All the handles for the doors in our rooms were falling off

The chair legs to the dining room table were all wobbly We had to leave a chair outside our room so they can take it away since it was one seat away from being broken We found old, funky, and filthy slippers under our bed— gross!The place seemed very short staffed and it was hard to get towels or anything else you needed I honestly feel like I should overpaid for this place Only pro: cable TV
