booked for a business stay in HMB. Right on Hwy 1 so be prepared for some road noise. We had room 123 which is tucked behind a stairway so I think that helped with the nigh noise. Louder during the day as it is next to Housekeeping. Room was clean and well maintained. Shower head wasn't too restrictive which was... More

they put someone else's room charges plus the extra charge for they dogs on our card. They ran our credit card 5 times. We have called many time and the manager will not return our call. They want us to have our friends call they to get their mistake corrected. In the mean time it has been 2 weeks and... More

We stayed at this motel because it was the only room we could find. All the motels for miles around were sold out. We considered ourselves lucky to find this room. It is located right on Hwy 1, so it has lot of traffic noise. Rooms are of good size and fairly clean. A bit over priced, but location allows... More

We stayed here for one Saturday night with our 3 young kids. We chose the coastside because it was well reviewed, affordable and accepted pets with an extra fee. It also looked like it would be a cute roadside inn. In reality, it's more like a motel 6 with nicer tv's and toiletries. The room was tiny, the bedding uncomfortable,... More

This hotel was chosen because it accepts pets for a $25 fee. It was also much cheaper than staying in San Francisco. It was a bad choice. I wonder what type of Windows they have and there must be no insulation or soundproofing. We could not get to sleep until 2 AM because of the traffic noise. It felt like... More

We always stay here when in Half Moon Bay. We are only in the room to sleep as we are often with family so it's fine. If you are looking for a place to chill, beach view don't book this Motel. It is what it is: Close to main St., Close to the beach, on Highway 1- as Motels go... More

We enjoyed our stay, close to the state beach, it is a nice long walk but we like to walk. Other beaches within a few minutes drive. Pet friendly rooms and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

Would not go back, MOSTLY because of inexperienced, wholly unhelpful staff who could not give a damn about guest needs. The booking experience was interesting. I called the hotel directly because the hotel was on the "preferred" list for a wedding I was attending. What I got was a VERY YOUNG girl (sounded like a 15 year old girl) who... More

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
