“A good night's rest”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Requested and received an ocean view room and what a view it turned out to be! Just gorgeous. Left back door open that night and fell asleep listening to the waves. Would definitely stay here again. Only minor complaint was a problem with the lights turning on and off in bathroom area.

This is another hotel the website does justice to the actual accomodations; the BW Lighthouse is not bad, but is dated and could use some updating. The food at their adjoining restraurant, The Moonraker, was delicious & the views awesome, but expect to pay for it. We meet several of our "neighbors" and they all raved about this place and said that they have been coming for years. Our room was nice, comfortable bed, pretty view, high quality linens & towels, wonderful sound of the oceam, but here was the problem. My Husband & i were on a romantic couples vacation and we were surrounded by families and they were all LOUD! All night long we could hear the people above us stomping around their room or at least it sounded like stomping to us; perhaps they were just walking loudly. Both rooms to the right and left of us had families with several small children in them and we could hear their conversations clearly through the walls -- word for word -- and babies crying; this is how i was woken up every morning for our 3 night stay.. if we ever stay at this BW location again, we will request a top floor room.

Room Tip: Pick a top floor room to avoid excessive "neighbor" noise.

Our first experience was not so good. We booked for Ocean View, but got the parking lot view. The house keeping never show up to clean the room. Also, the rate is much higher than other surrounding hotels. Overall, the location is great, restaurant food was Okay.

This is a place I will keep coming back to. Located just off the break water, this hotel has a spectacular view, that only gets better when it is clear. The roaring of the surf really makes it worth the trip for me. Pay more for the ocean front rooms if you can. I love the smell of the sea and you are close enough that you will likely have to wash the car afterwards!

We chose to stay here instead of in downtown SF in order to be directly on the beach, and as well as because of the amazing price we were able to secure through booking directly with the hotel.

The room was adequately spacious, and check-in was swift and cordial. Laundry isn't available on the weekend, which was inconvenient. We had breakfast twice at the diner next door, amazing selection of breakfast food with great service. Moonraker also serves up a more gourmet type of breakfast, also a great option. Parking is free and we always found a space for our large SUV.

The receptionist who was assisting us with check-out was kind enough to provide us with a printout of Google Map directions to SF, as well as a map of California. Both were indispensable during our drive.

I would stay here again, and recommend this hotel to others looking for a hotel within close proximity to the Bay Area. Definitely worth the view and the sound of waves crashing right outside our window.

Room Tip: Definitely go for a suite. Booking directly through Best Western will give you a better range of op...

I loved staying here! I could hear the waves crashing from my room! I'm sure the best rooms are the ones that have balconies facing the ocean.I liked the room I stayed in.It was clean,and nice.I was very comfortable in it. I also like the fact they had a heated pool to swim in.hot tub was nice too! I would def come back to this place!

Fantastic location around 20 minutes south of downtown San Francisco. Right on the ocean. You can't get any closer. Well kept rooms. I have stayed here around 6 times and it is consistently very good.
