I thought I had researched this place pretty well, but somehow I missed any mention of the Fog Horn. One reviewer mentions that it goes off every 30 seconds - that is incorrect. It goes off every 10 seconds. Every 10 seconds, all day, everyday, forever. Even with the horn, this place is one of the most amazing places we've... More

Excellent and friendly service. Rooms are clean & in great condition. The rooms have a lovely view and are very quiet. Nice wine & cheese hour in the evening and good buffet continental breakfast in the morning. Heated swimming pool. Look forward to returning!

We stayed as a family of four in a junior suite over MLK weekend. What a location! Just steps to Sam's Chowder House, which we've decided is one of the best restaurants in the Bay area and that says a lot! On the other side, you're just steps to the beach where the surfers hang out. Our daughters loved watching... More

Dear RLMerz, Thank you for taking the time to review the Beach House. I haven't heard that song before but am very interested in it. We're glad your kids had such a great time on the coast.

Modern yet comfy decor. Very clean and new looking. The bed was particularly comfortable. Kitchenette well stocked with dishes, appliances, and yet tucked away so as to not be the center of attention. I will come again.

Great spot but be sure to ask for full water view lest you be stuck with overlooking the RV park next door or the parking lot. It's well worth it as the rooms on all three floors that have balconies overlooking the bay are lovely. Service and amenities all quite adequate and the rooms are in fact quite spacious which...

Dear Mjwinkusa, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about the Beach House on Tripadvisor. All of our guest rooms are in the Junior Suite style which are much larger than a standard size hotel room and all of our rooms also have either a patio or balcony for a little extra space.

Dac + Patricia at the Front Desk went above & beyond to accommodate our special requests. Jerry in Service was equally professional and courteous in meeting our needs. The Aveda amenities, Frette linens and other thoughtful extras (tea kettles, tableware, appliances...) made the accommodations home-like and inviting. Overall, the wonderfully attentive and accommodating staff and well-maintained facilities and beautiful grounds... More

Paid for a partial ocean view...my view was an RV Park, a TV satellite, kitchen exhaust fan, and some other big unit blocking the view to the left and the center. I could see water way to the left if I stood up on the balcony. Ocean not visible from the balcony or the sitting area if you were seated... More

We stayed here by chance as we travelled up Hwy 1, and called in to see if they had any available rooms. I'm really glad we did as this was a fantastic stay. The rooms were huge, with a large bed, kitchenette and sofa area, and even though we didn't have a seaview we only had to walk around the... More

My husband and I only live about 30 minutes away from this place, but it always feels like you're in another world. Peaceful and right by the water - a perfect place to get away for a night or two to recharge over the weekend. The fog horn is now an old friend!

Dear selving37, Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor. The Beach House is within a 45 minute drive of more than a million and a half people; yet when you come to Half Moon Bay, you feel separated from the rest of the world.
