This is a lovely inn with boutique touches right on Half Moon Bay's main drag, Main Street. It has a homey feel, generally and the rooms are quite comfortable, especially the room where I stayed. You won't find a wide range of amenities but you'll find all the basics necessary for a pleasant stay, comfy bed, TV, ceiling fan, coffee/tea... More

Prior to booking, I take what's written about the hotel seriously and believe what they write on the specials is what we get. First of all, when we were checking in, their dog was sprawled on their couch, so nowhere to sit while we waited to check in and their dog was growling at us. Second, we got a room... More

This lovely place is really almost all you could ask for in a small boutique property - really thoughtful and unique decorative touches that were gorgeous without being over-the-top (particularly if you like the pottery-barn/shabby chic style) and very attentive but not intrusive service, and a super luxurious marshmallow bed. Also looked like it was really dog-friendly, with fancy dog... More

This charming inn is very convenient to the SFO aiport and a very beautilful drive away from San Francisco. The rooms are very comfortable and the inn is well run. I began staying there as an alternative to the high-priced Marriots in Frisco. I have been there many times and still love it. Also, there is a terrific Italian restaurant... More

First the good - it is very clean and the beds are comfortable. It is quaint and the rooms have a certain eclectic charm, particularly in the decor. The lady at the front desk was friendly and helpful... Clearly the hotel, being on Main St, is a close walk to various restaurants and shops and easy access to get onto... More

My husband and I stayed at this well-appointed in on our way from Mendocino to Carmel. We were only there for one night, so we weren't too concerned with a luxurious long stay, but a nice, clean quiet bed to rest our heads. The room was an excellent price at $140, which included a welcoming glass of wine, a beautifully... More

Half Moon Bay Inn was a treat for us. I had no idea how lovely it would be when I booked it. Bedroom was quaint with fine linens, wicker and shutters. Loved the white, mirrored dresser. Kitchenette with microwave, little frig and table was perfect. Bathroom worked for us but the shower is exceedingly small. There is a small restaurant... More

Was pleasantly surprised by this quaint and cozy inn! We stayed two nights, but I wish we could have stayed longer. The Inn has an excellent downtown location, close to restaurants and shops. Pasta Moon was a one minute walk and was delicious! The room was extremely clean and tastefully decorated. We stayed in the Piccola Stanza room and it... More

Lovely boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Half Moon Bay. My husband, our goldendoodle, Daisy May and I have the pleasure of staying here many times. The owner Jamie is very kind and has done a wonderful job decorating this place. The rooms are small and if you face the street you will hear cars driving by, but not... More

We found the Half Moon Bay Inn through Trip advisor as it was the highest rated in the category/location we were interested in. We were walk-ins for a two night stay the week after the region had suffered evident disruption from the Japanese Tsunami, so I think they were glad to see visitors back. In any event, we received a... More
