We stayed two nights and were really happy with the cheese, fruits and wine in the evening and especially impressed by the breakfasts. We stayed in the smallest room -- and it was a bit on the small side -- but still comfortable. The bed and shower are very nice -- TV is too low to see all the screen... More

I was in California for a business meeting and decided to come in a couple of days early for some rest and relaxation. The Nantucket Whale Inn in Half Moon Bay was just what the doctor ordered and was outstanding. The owners David & Jerry have created a stylish, very tasteful, well-appointed and welcoming environment. The guest rooms are so... More

My wife and I took our friend to Half Moon Bay for her birthday. The Nantucket Whale Inn was perfect. The newly remodeled Inn was beautifully decorated. Owners David and Jerry had years of experience in a previous B&B and their eye for detail was splendid. The shades of blues and grays blended perfectly. David was a great host, talking... More

I often travel solo due to my career and choose to stay at locally owned boutique hotels and Bed & Breakfasts. Two locals from Half Moon Bay suggested I stay at the Nantucket Whale Inn. My experience was fantastic from the moment I checked in until I realized I had to go back to work 3 days later:(. The Nantucket... More

We spent the 4th of July weekend at this charming B & B. The inn and our room were beautifully decorated, breakfasts excellent, and it is located conveniently on the quiet part of Main Street (an easy walk to the Main Street stores and restaurants). A perfect spot to watch the parade, walk to a beach, or venture up and... More

My fiance and I stayed here last week and while we were only able to stay one night it was a fantastic experience. We got into San Francisco late and David was beyond accommodating. We stayed in the smallest room which was not small by any means. The bed was very comfortable and the furnishings were a nice touch of... More

Wow, this place is so romantic. I enjoyed the whale theme and attention to detail. But the best was the gas fireplaces and the lovely gardens. Half-moon bay has a lot of restaurants and winetasting nearby. I can't wait to go back ! Oh I forgot to mention the bed. Very large, very comfortable, I loved the linens and bathrobes... More

My wife and I spent one night here and loved the experience. Not only was it our first stay here, but also our first B&B. The property just recently re-opened after major renovations by the new owner, and we had to have been one of the first visitors. The location was great as we wanted to explore main street in...
