We booked a couple nights last spring while our house was being re-roofed. I had a terrible cold and we had no plan or reservations, just needed a quiet place with vacancy. We had been curious about HMB Inn but had never checked it out. They did have a room available so we booked for the next two nights. I... More

Very much enjoyed our stay at the Half Moon Bay Inn. I had read reviews that it could be noisy but our room was quiet all night (we faced the side street, Mill St.). We stayed in one of the Kitchen Suites. The kitchen was all yellow and so charming. Yellow is my fav color so I may be biased.... More

We stayed in the Downtown Suite (because everything else was booked) and this was definitely a suite, including kitchen. We loved the room, the beds were so comfortable,.. it was very warm so we slept with the windows opened and were not bothered at all by outside noise. The kitchen had everything you needed, and a nice Krups coffee maker.... More

We were here for 2 nights Friday-Sunday. Family Colossal King. I'm surprised this one got a 4/5. I generally trust TripAdvisor traveler's comments, but this one was definitely a miss. Let me start with some of the positives: Pros: 1. centrally located to restaurant and shops. 2. Friendly staff upon checking in and gave us recommendation for things to do... More

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your stay at the Half Moon Bay Inn. When you made your original booking online, you had an interior room that would have been away from any city noises. You said it was for two people. You called and changed the room to the Family Colossal King. It has a king bed and a... More

We stayed in the Uptown Suite which was set up with a sleeping area, bathroom , and small kitchen. The room itself is amazing. Very comfortable bedding, stylish without being to too modern, and exceptionally clean. The bedding was excellent and they provided extra pillows and blankets right in the room. The room also came with two luxurious robes. The... More

This inn is within walking distance to everything on Main Street (shops, restaurants, etc) and for that reason it can be very noisy. It is situated above a restaurant, which creates noise from early a.m. till late p.m. The rooms are very nicely appointed, with above average amenities like locally made (paraben & SLS free) soaps, shampoos and lotions. If... More

I would give this place 3.5 starts if that was possible. It was hard to decide between 3 and 4 stars. We were in one of the colossal king rooms. The bed was big and fluffy and soooo comfortable. I slept really well. The hotel is on the main street in Half Moon Bay with lots of cute shops and... More

We had the twin room which had adequate space. The beds were amazing, what fantastic bedding. The toiletries and amenities in the room and in the hallway is a clear indication that the owners are thoughtful. From fresh fruits to tea and coffee, water, wifi... it's all readily available. The location is right in the middle of town, a 20... More
