Located right in the old part of town, which has quaint shops and interesting restaurants ,book stores and is perfect for nice stroll. We were on a walking vacation from San Francisco to Half Moon Bay. This was the perfect ending to perfect trip. We didn't have a car and needed to rely on public transportation back to the city....

Booked two rounds of golf at HMB old course and ocean course as part of a play and stay package. Golf was top notch but the stay at HMB Inn was disappointing. Rooms directly above the restaurant make for poor and VERY noisy night(s) rest. The late night noise from the restaurant to the loud clanging of pots and pans... More

I'm so sorry that we did not meet your expectations. We are located in the heart of our small downtown area and have no control over the sounds that disturbed you. We do have other rooms that are located away from the street noise. We do our best to insure a pleasant stay for our guests. I hope that you... More

So Romantic! I loved this inn. My Husband and I stayed here on an anniversary trip and LOVED it. Everything was clean and comfortable. We ate at the little italian restaurant right there and it was beautiful- and yummy. The little town is quaint- we were there in October 2011 during their pumpkin festival and the beach is only a...

We were looking for a clean, safe, reasonably priced and dog friendly place to stay in half moon bay. The HMB Inn fit the bill. This is located right on Main St close to restaurants and some shopping. We stayed in the Piccola Stanza room #6 which is their smallest room but was comfy. Here are some thing worth mentioning....

I stayed here in one of their cottage suites while on business travel - but will definitely come back with my husband for a long weekend. The inn is right in downtown Half Moon Bay - convenient walking distance to all of the great shops and restaurants (i.e., no parking or driving!). I was told the suites were recently renovated...

The staff was exceptionally helpful over the phone when making my reservation. I'd never been to this part of California coast before. I live in Houston. Anyway, the owner greeted me and my little Maltese upon arrival, with a friendly welcome chat. The room was lovely - especially the private enclosed upstairs patio to lounge on with a glass of...

We just returned from a trip to California where we visited Carmel, Monteray Bay, Napa, and San Francisco. We stayed at various hotels along the way, ranging from a cute boutique hotel at Union Square and the Marriott in Napa Valley. All were excellent but we were totally blown away by the Half Moon Bay Inn in beautiful Half Moon... More

We have stayed at the HMB Inn about 6-8 times over the past couple of years, and have always loved it. The rooms are comfortable, the decor is charming and the extras -- in-room coffee services, locally-made toiletries, cozy robes -- make our stay less like a hotel and more like a visit to a welcoming home. We've stayed in... More

What's nice about this place is that it's dog friendly. What's not so nice is the inn keeper's poodle is extremely UN-friendly. Quite a bit of snarling and barking when me and my canine checked in. Took a while to get the poodle and one other dog squared safely away in a little cubby, tho the snarling that persisted was... More

We stayed here one night in February, time permitting we would have liked to stay longer. Very nice and comfortable room and very friendly staff. Were given a complimentary room upgrade. The bed was super comfortable and everything was just so nice. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Half Moon Bay Inn.
