This is really an up market american style motel property rather than a hotel.The pictures on the website are quite flattering and show the property from the beach side , which does not reflect that it is beside the main Cabrillo highway.We had a penthouse suite, which did the job, but was pretty pedestrian compared to proper hotel suites.There is...

Dear LADYRAWDON, Thank review of your stay, we appreciate all our guests feedback. We are conveniently located on Highway 1 in Half Moon Bay and we do offer spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and Pillar Point Harbor.

My wife and I stayed for one night last Saturday and our stay was very nice. The weather was perfect so that helped a lot, but the hotel accommodations were quite nice as well. Very pleasant staff, and the room was spacious and well appointed for the most part. The Continental Breakfast was very decent, with quality fresh fruit, good... More

Best little hotel in Half Moon Bay. I always enjoy our stays at the beach house. The beds are so comfortable I always sleep in an extra hour or so. Listening to the fog horn go off puts me right to sleep. Waking up to otters playing in the bay and the fresh breakfast down stairs. Walking and biking along... More

This was our 30th anniversary trip to California. We mentioned this at the time of booking. Normally, hotels provide a little something in the room to acknowledge the occasion. This was not the case at The Beach House. We did have a decent stay at this hotel. On the up side, the entire place is extremely clean. The bathrooms were... More

This was the selected site for a glorious 60th anniversary celebration for my in-laws, and in every way proved an excellent choice. The location right above the beach was ideal in offering activities for all ages. The terrace location and small meeting room where we held the dinner were quite adequate for our needs, and a wonderful backdrop for photos... More

My husband and I live less than 2 hours away. Most people would question why we even stayed in a hotel when we could get away with just doing a day trip. But, let me tell you, this was the best little getaway vacation we could've planned. The hotel staff were so warm and welcoming from the second we arrived.... More

I loved this place. It's not pretentious, doesn't offer world-class pampering, and has a limited amount of amenities. What it does have, though, is a wonderfully relaxing and welcoming environment that would be very difficult to beat. The rooms are comfortably worn in and have everything you need for a "get away from it all" weekend. I can't imagine a... More

The Beach House is in Granada, about a 5 minute drive from the main town in Half Moon Bay. Although it's right on Hwy 1, our room faced the ocean and didn't get any traffic noise. Lots of positives about the inn and a couple of negatives. We were in HMB primarily to play golf and didn't want to spring... More
