It looks better than lit is. A king bedded room with a fireplace was just under $250 a night w/ tax I expected more than a Duraflame log and a breakfast better than most $60-$80 motels I've used in the Midwest. The room was clean and spacious and the grounds were well-maintained and l lobby staff helpful. The room was... More

Stayed at the HMB Lodge recently while attending a four day conference. Was pleased with the large room and small private patio. Everything was clean, modern and well appointed. Noise was not an issue, except neighbors who are clueless and let the door slam closed. Front desk was nice. Room service is from a diner nearby..kind of interesting. Food was... More

I've been to this hotel twice and have been very pleased on both visits. The front desk staff is always super professional and nice and treat you well and smile. I was offered a complimentary late check-out because I had a foot massage scheduled next door at the Oasis Foot Spa. The hotel is quiet and good for adults who... More

Very happy with our stay at the lodge. The heat did not work in our original room so the staff upgraded us to a bigger room with fireplace (#240) which was quite nice. The bed was very comfortable and the noise level was moderate. Most rooms back out to half moon bay golf course. Much more affordable than the Ritz!

We decided to day-trip from Half Moon Bay into San Francisco due to the cost savings. This hotel was nicely situated and the staff were very accommodating, bringing us a microwave to use in our room and allowing us to check in early. Freshly-baked cookies came out at 4 PM and the complementary breakfast was above average, featuring Peets coffee... More

The room was very clean. The bed had plenty of pillows. The bathroom was cleaned daily. The hotel is kind of away from the Half Moon Bay city but there is a restaurant nearby. The Ritz Carlton is also close by and they have a superb and romantic, although pricey, restaurant.

This hotel benefits by being close to the nearby Ritz Carlton and golf courses. We found the staff 50/50 - the person who assisted us was friendly and personable. Good thing, because his colleague never looked up from her phone call to acknowledge us or the growing line of guests waiting to check in. We were on the ground floor... More

We chose this hotel as part of the Pacifica chain, where we have always had good rooms. HMB Lodge was no exception. Our room was huge, with a king-size bed and a balcony overlooking the golf course. Located south of HMB on Route 1, the hotel is quiet and the rooms are clean. The only negative is that the included... More

The hotel is very close to the Ritz Carlton, where we were attending a wedding. We stayed for 2 nights. Pretty exterior, we were on the ground floor with no view. Probably block wedding parties are given the lower end rooms as they are given at a reduced rate. The room was very clean which was great but the sound... More
