We booked this hotel for one night and were so impressed we extended our stay for another night. From the friendly and exceptionally accommodating staff to the outstanding amenities, every moment of our stay was perfect. There are freshly baked cookies in the afternoon, a breakfast that was way more than a normal continental breakfast, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas and towels, all complimentary for guests.
I travel a lot for business as well as pleasure and the Bay Shores exceeded all previous experiences. Parking is a premium here and yet if their lot is full, they make every attempt to find a spot for you. The breakfast is good and the other amenities are great. The hotel looks old but don't let that fool you. Inside has been totally refurbished and the rooms are nice. Thumbs up in my book!
We will return! Location is ideal. The room was immaculate and inviting. The shower water pressure was excellent, and the bed was comfortable. The staff made us feel welcome and at home. Access to the beach was so close, and what an amazing beach! We brought dinner in and dined on the rooftop terrace. The views are wonderful. We took our breakfast up there as well.
The only thing missing was more time.
We have been coming here for the past ten years if not more! We always feel like we are home! We grew up in the area but have lived in the Bay Area for the last 25 years. The rooms are immaculate. There is fresh fruit in your room and a welcome note on your bed. Fresh baked chocolate chip cookies are available every afternoon. Everything you need for the beach (towels, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards) are free. The staff has ALWAYS been super friendly! Any time of the year, this is our #1 "go-to" spot!
I was a little nervous about booking this hotel, despite all of the rave reviews. When I saw the pictures of the surfers on the wall I thought that it might be kitchy or some divey beach hut. Boy, was I wrong! From the second you walk in the door, the staff treats you like an old friend. We always felt welcome and at home when we walked through the door.
We have stayed several times at this Hotel, and I must say I have never met or come across a more attentive staff. They are at your beck and call to make sure your stay is flawless and hassel free. The rooms are extremely well kept with large flat screen tv's, dvd players etc. Walking distance to the beach (few hundred ft.)and so on, you cannot go wrong staying at The Bay Shores penninsula Hotel, but I must say again, it is the staff and General Manager Ralph that really make your stay worth while and unforgettable.
I cannot wait to go back to this cute little hotel. I loved that you could go up on the roof and have almost a 360 degree view of water or watch the sun set. Everything was clean and the staff was very friendly. I will definitely return.
My partner and I travelled from Glasgow and stayed at the hotel during the first two weeks in July. Having read the previous reviews on this site, I was prepared to be disappointed as I didn't think anywhere could live up to the great reviews I had read however, I have to say I would have to agree with all the great things that have been written about this place.The staff are so welcoming and helpful and the hotel itself is clean and very well equipped with everything you could need to make your stay hassle free, including the free use of beach equipment, towels etc.
We have stayed here several times and each time it feels more like home. This hotel is the definition of upscale comfortable. The rooms are tastefully appointed, the beds are just right, the showers have great water pressure, and the rooms are immaculate. Probably the cleanest hotel I’ve ever stayed in. I personally like that they deliver the LA Times to your door each morning. There’s nothing like having a fresh croissant, coffee and the paper to start your day.
This feels like a European Boutique hotel. The staff could not be friendlier or more accommodating. The rooms are small but clean and nice. We had regular rooms as well as the family suite and they were perfect. LOVED having the beach toys and amenities. Great breakfast, snacks and movies for use. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
