We don't stay in hotels because we want to enjoy what the hotel has to offer. We stay in hotels so we can take advantage of everything nearby. It's nice when the hotel offers unique options like a rooftop deck to view the Pacific and the bay, where you can watch surfers, see the local marinas and enjoy a meal or beverage, just like you were on your own porch. It's also very nice when the hotel offers rooms that are stylishly diverse, clean and comfortable. I like a room where you can sleep with the windows open. That's what we found at the Bay Shores Peninsula Hotel. Friendly, helpful staff, too. Need directions, they will tell you how to get there and provide a free map. Want to talk, they are happy to oblige you in conversation.
We really enjoyed our stay and would love to go back again.
