  • We stayed in Montara, CA and the lighthouse was a short walk from the house we rented. It is a beautiful old structure and the views are even more beautiful. The grounds are now a hostel for travelers...  read more »
  • A very nice lighthouse located in Halfmoon Bay - there are many others, e.g. Pigeon Point, and you will meet friendly staff - and there's a good chance to see whales :-) 
  • Sits on a cliff overlooking the ocean. Beautiful views from the private room with shared shower, $85 per night. Gracious staff well appointed kitchens, supplies bedding 
  • Stunning location, inside a natural marine reserve in the Montara Lighthouse buildings. The hostel has all the amenities you need, from laundry room to living rooms, two kitchens, vegetables garden and very good wifi range. The rooms are big and nice. Best quality for this price!
  • Right on the Pacific. Great views. Can easily pass it though. Rooms were clean. Needs more bathrooms. Would definitely come back.
  • Stayed years ago, so can't give accurate info on rooms. But have visited many times for games days, touring the grounds, photographing the spectacular view. All staff are pleasant and informative. Plenty of short term parking if you are coming to tour the grounds, though it gets tight during the weekends. Lots of cyclist stop here for lunch at the picnic tables, and huge numbers of Chinese tourists trickle in nonstop during the summer, to photograph the coast and lighthouse (though they all travel by car since the grounds will not support the large tour buses).
  • The room are very nice and cheap. I enjoyed the open air atmosphere of the place. It's also really close to the ocean and has great views everyday
  • What a dream! Call in advance, book a bed, definitely stay here! Family rooms, single and coed dorm beds. Right on the point! Here's your view, no kidding! ! We just stopped in, got lucky on a morning what a find!
