Two of my sisters and I were driving up PCH and this was an overnight stop for us. Beautiful view of the bay! We had a suite on the ground floor.. Room size was good for the three of us, but a little outdated, in my opinion. But you can't beat that view!! The appliances looked useable, but we didn't... More

We have stayed at the Beach House 3 times over the years. The staff has been amazingly nice and helpful, the rooms clean, views beautiful and the 2 massages have been fantastic. I love that we can walk to the beach and the harbor and to many fine restaurants. Can't wait to return!

I know the title to this review may seem a bit over the top, but what a difference three-and-half years make. Our first stay at Beach Hotel was an impromptu event. It would be the last evening of our seven day road trip through Central, and Northern California where our first few days were spent in a friend's beautiful cabin... More

Lovely property. Stayed on the highest floor facing Half Moon Bay. The heat did not work in the room due to a mechanical problem. They did comp me with two bundles of wood and brought me a portable heater. The in room coffee was not replenished but they do have a continental breakfast. Only ice machine I could find was...

Dear Dianne S, Thank you for your post on Tripadvisor. Our partial view rooms are great with king beds and views of the coast. Sam's is a great spot for lunch or dinner; and now that the days are longer, it is a great spot to watch the sunset. We look forward to your next visit. Best regards, Matthew Daubenspeck... More

I was out visiting my son and daughter-in-law who live in San Francisco and after reading about Half Moon Bay in a James Patterson novel, I asked if we could go and explore for a day. A day turned into two days and an overnight and we stayed at this wonderful hotel. My room faced the ocean and Sam's restaurant... More

I journey to Northern California on a regular basis. This hotel was recommended by my daughter and son-in-law. The room looked out at Sam's and at the bay. It was spacious and quiet. It allowed me the opportunity to spend time with my granddaughters and explore the parks and playgrounds that Half Moon Bay has. Next time I will visit... More

The staff that welcomed us were exceptionally nice. The split level room allows you to lay in bed and look out to the water thru your balcony while you have your fireplace going-ROMANTIC and COZY. I must say that the bed's in this hotel exceed the heavenly beds at the W Hotel. We enjoyed the clean pool and hot tub... More

My finacee and I planned a staycation in Half Moon Bay. This hotel was by far the greatest choice. Our stay was fantastic, staff was extremely polite, hotel was clean and the pool and hot tub were a great bonus. I will definitely be staying at this hotel again and telling all of my friends and family. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Dear DwightJCuz, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on Tripadvisor. The Beach House is a great place to retreat to as a staycation destination. It's so close to so much, yet it feels like your a million miles from home once you settle in at the Beach House. We look forward to seeing you again soon.... More
