Stayed one night with a family of 4. Room was very nice and clean. Hotel is right off main highway and parking is free. Free wifi is included. Close to the Ritz Carlton, coast trail and beach. The golf course is adjacent to the hotel. Free breakfast was offered and included hard boiled eggs, waffles, toast, bagels, fruit, cereal, yogurt,... More

I haven't stayed here for over 30 years. It's not as upmarket now as it was then, probably because there's now a Ritz Carlton just around the corner. Having said that the rooms are large and very good. The check in was a pleasure and the staff very good. Breakfast was above average for an inclusive deal. The hotel is... More

The lodge was very nice. We didn't know where breakfast was or given any info but we figured it out. We were on the bottom floor looking at the pool and hot tub area. It was a nice quiet area. The room was clean and nice. The pool was warm and the hot tub was HOT! The only negative I... More

My husband, young son and I just stayed two nights on a chilly, wet weekend for our wedding anniversary. The living room of our king suite (#209) was spacious, and we had a long balcony facing the golf course. We had a microwave, fridge, coffeemaker and sink. We enjoyed the real fire in the fireplace. We slept well on the... More

We had an excellent stay at this hotel. The room were quiet, the beds very comfortable and the courtyards, pool area, outdoor fireplace area etc were a nice bonus and well kept. Only about 1 from Half Moon Bay Golf Course (a must play) and a fraction of the cost of the Ritz. You won't be disappointed.

My Wife and I live in Ireland, and have been coming to Half Moon Bay since 1979,always house sitting,so this was a great change for us to stay in a hotel. We found the Half Moon Bay Lodge to turn out to be the very best of choices. Great views, very comfortable room, peaceful,and a very comfortable King Size bed.... More

we got a room at this hotel via opaque website (hotwire) for very reasonable rate and were very positively surprised: you can hear sound of the sea rushing, great beds, rooms are spacious, bathrooms "rustic" but functional. Spa and pool are great. Excellent breakfast. Relaxing and inspiring - can't wait to go back!

Love the grounds of Half Moon Bay Lodge - a hacienda feel. The Spa and pool are great. Breakfast is more than sufficient. The beds are quite comfortable. It was a perfectly relaxing and wonderful stay. Can't wait to return.

I would definitely feel okay about recommending this hotel. The room we had was spacious and we enjoyed the fireplace. The continental breakfast was nice as well, more than just the typical pastries and dry cereal. There were lots of lovely touches in the way of flowers and greenery. We were able to walk to the ocean from the property.... More
