I tend to read all the negative reviews about a place and see if I think I can tolerate it. I discovered all the negatives were right, but overstated. Yes, they have a fog horn that goes off every 10 seconds. Yes, some of the staff are less friendly than others. No, there is no AC. No, there aren't enough... More

I am pretty much copying and pasting an email I wrote to the manager back in April, who decided never to contact me even after promising to, to discuss our stay. I told him I wanted to give him a fair chance to explain what happened before I wrote my review but apparently he didn't care so here it is!... More

The hotel is clean, nice rooms, very helpful staff and have nice amenities including a good continental breakfast. It is perfectly located within 1/2 block of a fantastic seafood restaurant SAMs Chowder House, go for a nice beach walk, or wander up to the Pier. I Would highly recommend it!

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...

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

Dear Sandra A, Thank you for sharing your comments. Sometimes the trips closest to home are the most memorable. You don't need to spend a whole day driving and you return to home or work completely rested.
