Stayed in suite #10. Fireplace broken, deadbolt broken, no A/C, weird tub/shower situation. Old, faded dusty fake flowers decorate the room. Very outdated. Big room with high ceilings and big comfortable bed. But I wouldn't return.

My wife and I stayed here and it was one of the worst experiences we have had. Beds hard as a rock, fireplace didn't work, heard traffic on the street, walls paper thin and heard neighbors tv and dog all night. Front desk was not responsive to neighbors noise. Buffett in morning was not that great and staff not very... More

We left Napa for a quiet relaxing Thanksgiving! That is exactly what we got. Quick check in and very friendly. Breakfast was fresh. (the best blackberries I've had since I lived in Oregon) Suites are comfy, and had everything you'd need. PET FRIENDLY! We will be back!

We stayed for just one night but would've loved to have been able to stay longer. Our room was clean and comfortable. Staff were helpful, owner was very friendly and quirky! Attend the wine hour as you'll get to meet the other guests and hopefully make more friends as we did. Breakfast around a single table worked well and the... More

This B&B was just what we were looking for. Comfortable rooms, friendly staff and amazing breakfasts. Located within walking distance of novelty shops and restaurants. Short drive away from a marina and the US Hwy 1 which we followed south as far as Big Sur. Great location and would highly recommend this property.

We stayed here for 1 nite coming from Carmel to fly out of San Francisco. This is a bed and breakfast and met our expectations. Check in was quick and efficient. While our room overlooked the town's main street, there was no issue with noise or traffic. Breakfast was surprisingly extensive with both cold and warm options. Regardless of who... More

Zaballa House was easy to find. Clean and spacious room with a fireplace. Our room (22) did not have a great view but others may have. The location is perfect. It is very easy to walk to near-by restaurants and shops. The breakfast was very good. It included homemade quiches (several kinds), lots of fresh fruit, donut holes, muffins, cottage... More

The Zaballa House is located on North Main Street in the heart of old town Half Moon Bay. There are wonderful restaurants, bars, shops etc.. with character, that are all within walking distance of the hotel. The main part of the hotel is in the center of the property, which is a beautiful old house filled with vintage antiques. The... More

This is our go to for great rates, great, quiet location. We enjoy walking up and down the Main Street and not having to worry about parking! They offer quiche, lots of fruit and sometimes waffles for breakfast - very yummy! Rooms are basic, but clean.

We stayed in Room 10 and had plenty of hot water. We paid $160 plus tax and thoroughly enjoyed the comforts of the room. Service was perfunctory, breakfast phenomenal with loads of fresh fruit and a choice of quiche. Bed was squeaky, creaky. Good location to downtown shops. Woken up by garbage trucks or some such at 7am. Plenty of... More
