This is a very nice hotel within walking distance of some fine restaurants. Rooms are clean and the staff is pleasant and helpful. Only drawback is that there is no a/c and the hotel is on the main highway. I like a bit of air and so had to leave the window open. I needed earplugs, but i'd still come... More

This is a great little Inn located downtown Main St. Half Moon Bay, Ca. We were greeted and helped to our room by the Inns wonderful hostess. She even offered to help carry our very heavy bags. ( I wouldn't let her ). She returned later with a glass of wine for both of us along with some smoked salmon.... More

It was a warm day, unusual perhaps, but that made this stay uncomfortable. No AC, no vent in the bathroom (so humid after a shower you couldn't breathe), huge AC unit right outside the window that ran until midnight (no AC meant we had to have the lone window open); but the worst was the "music" from the kitchen crew...

I'm sorry you were uncomfortable staying at the Half Moon Bay inn. Normally, Half Moon Bay is cooler than the rare temperature you experienced. Our building was built in the 1930's and although completely renovated, with our guest's cofort in mind, we do not have AC because it is rarely needed. For those rare days, we do have fan's. Your...

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

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
