We heard that this was the place to stay in Half Moon Bay, and they were right! We loved the location and the room was very nice. It was a great size for the four of us. We look forward to going back.

The hotel has a beautiful setting Our room was on the 1st floor, so peaceful and very comfortable. I especially liked the little kitchen (with 2 hot plates) which allowed us the freedom to eat in (although no cooking utensils are supplied)

I stayed at the Beach House on March 26, 2014. I paid $321 dollars and was upgraded to their Oceanview Suite at no extra charge. If this was $150 room it would have been fine. My guest described the hotel as "tired looking". Not exactly what I wanted for her to experience. Its a nice location and we stayed there... More

Dear Sarah G, Thank you for your post on Tripadvisor, but I am disappointed to learn that the room wasn’t up to your expectations. All of our rooms have recently been updated, and as of March 23rd we replaced all sofa beds with new models that have pillow top mattresses. We do have some of the largest rooms on the... More

This hotel is situated in a wonderful location, overlooking the beach and harbour, and with direct access to the walking/biking path that goes along the coast. Easy to walk to a number of fun restaurants. Breakfast is great - lots of fruit, some pastries (could do with a bit more protein, perhaps some yogurt or meats). So, it should be... More

Dear Adrian Z, Thank you for your comments. I regret to learn that the fog horn had a negative impact on your otherwise pleasant stay. The intensity of the fog horn varies on winds, air density and weather. Being close to the harbor and all of the amenities there, as well as the functionality of the harbor itself, the fog... More

Beautiful location, very peacefull! We were looking at the location as a possible stay for our upcoming wedding in Half Moon Bay. Sat on the porch for morning cup of coffee. The breakfast could have been better with more healthy options besides fruit but overall enjoyed our stay.
