An older hotel, a moderately priced room in a high priced area. The hotel was fully booked, we had reservations. Close to beaches, restaurants the downtown area. The staff were very friendly and helpful recommending nearby restaurants and sites. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Everything worked. The WiFi was strong and reliable. They do have breakfast included... More

We made an online reservation, but once we arrived, it went downhill from there. The girl behind the counter was new and couldn't find our reservation. A call to Travel....y helped a little. She found our reservation after they called the hotel. They advertise "Pet Friendly", for a hefty fee ($35. per pet), the highest fee I've ever seen. We... More

There is conflicting website information: some sites state this is a Holiday Inn Express while others say it is Coastside Inn(it is a Coastside Inn), we arrived to find it all booked and it fact NOT a Holiday Inn so we had to go to the Holiday Inn Express in Belmont California, about a 12 mile scenic drive over the...

DO NOT BOOK HERE UNLESS YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO CANCEL DUE TO ILLNESS OR ANY OTHER REASON WITHIN 48 HOURS OF YOUR RESERVATION! I made a reservation and my husband came down ill. I called to cancel within the 48 hours and was told that I would be charged the full amount UNLESS I re-scheduled... More

We liked staying here. Chose it because it was a halfway point for us between San Simeon and Cupertino California. There is a state beach only a block away and tide pools. Good restaurants as well. Will stay here again on our next trip.

In planning our trip from San Francisco to Monterey we knew we wanted to stop in Half Moon Bay for the night. Since we booked ahead we were able to get a good deal on one night at the Coastside Inn. The beds were moderately comfortable and it had cable tv but the free wireless internet was pretty spotty. Though... More

We often visit friends who live near Half Moon Bay, and look for clean, quiet, not fancy, and not expensive lodging. This is a moderately priced hotel for the notoriously high-priced area. There's no ambiance to speak of - no ocean views, just Hwy 1 - but the rooms are okay. It's just a place to sleep, before you head... More

I thought our room at the hotel was pretty nice, it was spacious and clean. We were on the second floor and could hear some road noise, but that's to be expected at any of the hotels that are right off the highway. The hotel is really close to downtown Half Moon Bay and close to several beaches. Unfortunately there... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find my room to be a good size and tidy. I stayed 4 nights in a ground floor room and slept well and never heard any traffic on Hwy 1. The Inn allows dogs but they must do a good job of cleaning because there was no trace of a dog ever being in my... More

$170 for an extremely basic room, on a VERY busy and noisy highway is absurd. The place was sold out however, due to the location. NOT impressed, and won't stay there again. There was no ocean view, no amenities, no nothing...other than a clean room. Painfully average accommodations at a ridiculously inflated price.
