Cannot compare to "luxury" very high end hotels, but this is the most thoughtful place I have stayed in. We just had one night but everything was so thoughtful that we felt we had a real vacation. We enjoyed ocean, swimming pool, hot tub, beach walk. (TV was not high def. Aspect ratio was wrong at 16:9 but we were... More

Highly recommend this charming hotel and the beach and harbour. Be sure to enjoy the fresh fish and shellfish and views from Sam's next door...only a short walk from the hotel! We loved the terrace breakfast of fresh fruit and pastries.

We spent one night on their Relaxation Spa Package. It includes massage for two ($190 value based on their rack rate), as well as 2pm late checkout. I booked separate massages for my wife and I. The reservation system for the spa package couldn't have been easier. About 24 hours after I made my reservation online, the spa called me... More

When booking a Jr. Suite be careful because one of the suites has the ventilation system right by the balcony and it has a funky smell. We couldn't enjoy the balcony because whatever was coming out from that vent was affecting my asthma so requested to be moved, and they did. We moved to room 205, on the opposite side... More

Dear Luv2rlx, Thank you for posting your comments on Tripadvisor. I apologize the first room you had didn't quite fit the bill, but glad we were able to accommodate you. Our proximity to Sam's makes for an easy dining option. We hope to see you again (perhaps in an Ocean View Room) soon. Best regards, Matthew Daubenspeck Front Office Manager... More

We stayed for a wedding and were impressed by the location. One of the cooler things in the room was the stereo system where you could hook up your phone/iPod. Clean, friendly. Breakfast could be a little better but okay. No coffee machine in the room.

Dear Jennifer R, Thank you for taking the time to review us on Tripadvisor. I do agree that The Beach House has a great. We are seconds away from the Harbor and surfing, five minutes from downtown, and ten minutes away from golf. I apologize there wasn't a coffee maker in your room. All of our Junior Suites have a...

My two sisters were visiting from back east and we wanted to go to the beach overnight. The Beach House Hotel in Half Moon Bay was perfect. We had a room without a view so it was less expensive. But the hotel is right on the water so we were steps from the ocean. The room was very cozy with... More

Traveling to Beach House Inn for an off-site work retreat. The rooms were well appointed and clean..But, what stood out to me was the amazing customer service that my team enjoyed during our stay. The staff went ABOVE AND BEYOND to cater to our every need. The food was AMAZING...some of the best I've ever had at a hotel!!! Thank... More

We wanted to a quick weekend getaway, and i ended up booking a ocean view junior suite at the Beach House. The view from our is amazing...the hotel is located on the part of coast by the yacht club and other boats are docked, so there were not a lot of waves. Looking out into the pacific ocean, it looks... More

Dear isy_01, Thank you for sharing you're thoughts on Tripadvisor.The views from our rooms are truly some of the most spectacular you'll find on the coast. The breakfast offerings are, as you put it, bountiful. I'm sorry to learn the wine and cheese hour didn't hit the mark for you. We do try to promote Californian wines, and although Mondavi... More

My husband and I landed here accidentally after the hotel we booked in San Francisco lost our reservation. We had intended on spending two days being tourists in San Francisco. After checking into the hotel late, the person working the front desk asked if we had been able to find dinner, then recommended restaurants for us to try. Instead of... More
