We were two adults and two kids. We LOVED the heated pool. It was heated! And the layout quite lovely with ocean views from pool and hot tub and big patio. The room had an ocean view, very comfortable for the four of us. Fluffy down comforters and two TVs. My bed was a wee bit soft for my taste... More

Stayed here with friends from out of town and had a great time. Rooms clean and comfortable as always. Reasonably priced for off season and actually prices a tad bit better than other high end competitors. Morning continental breakfast very nice. Service fantastic! Certainly will return!

My kids and I headed to Half Moon Bay for a couple days this winter and, after reading all the great reviews on Trip Advisor, decided to stay at The Beach House. I waited until the last minute to book because we weren’t staying Fri/Sat nights in high season and the online booking said there were plenty of rooms available,... More

My Fiance and I were here celebrating our 2 Year Anniversary and Valentine's Day. Definitely worth the stay. Loved the scenery. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Very relaxing and just a walk away from the beach. Great Location. Will definitely return in the future.

After seven days in Sonoma it was great to drive down to HMB and land at a Beach House junior suite. Nice room - first floor so it felt like we were on the beach. Comfortable, nicely equipped and good continental breakfast. Very good location. The fog horn (every 10 seconds) didn't bother us after a few minutes (but it... More

Dear SanM412, Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on Tripadvisor. You definitely picked two great locations to visit on your West Coast trip. I do apologize about the miscommunication regarding the wine reception. We do offer a complimentary Wine & Cheese hour on Friday and Saturdays from 5:30 - 6:30pm. We hope to welcome you again...

Great place, can't wait to go back. We spent 2 nights in the junior suite. The room was clean & comfortable. The hotel staff was great. We enjoyed eating breakfast on our patio each morning. The fog horn wasn't an issue at all - it added character (& I sleep with earplugs!!!). We don't usually rest & relax much on... More

This was an ideal location to enjoy Half Moon Bay and the Coastside. The property is located close to the ocean above a walking trail. It's less than 5 minutes to the beach! The hotel has welcoming touches of lobby fireplace, fountains, lemon water, and spa treatments. Loved staying in an ocean view room with patio to enjoy the view.... More

Dear InternationalGal, Thank you for your kind post about the Beach House on Tripadvisor. We are very fortunate to have the location we do. There is not a hotel in Half Moon Bay that is as close to the water as we are; and the easily accessible Coastal Trail, located just steps away, is a phenomenal alternative to get around... More

After being diagnosed with breast cancer and having surgery, my husband and I decided to spend some time at the ocean to rejuvenate our mind, body and spirit.

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

Dear ShortyKelley, Thank you for your post on Tripadvisor. The fog horn is classic to the craggy coast of Northern California and I agree, it doesn't take long for the wind and waves to drown our the fog horn buzz. The views from the Ocean View rooms will surely help to take attentions away from the horn as well. We... More
