The Beach House at Half Moon is an absolute gem. We stayed for one night. The staff was wonderful and room was clean. Bed was comfortable and sheets smelled good. The bathroom was clean and fresh. The bathroom was older. The beach view from the room was relaxing and quaint. Easy walk to the beach and local restaurant. Slept with... More

We had non-stop problems with the key card entry of our room. Maid staff had to let us in 3 out of the 4 times we left the room. They were very helpful. The desk staff on the other hand was very rude about it and would not listen to out problem. They assumed it was because the door was... More

Cute beach hotel, smaller than most chains. Couldn't find many hotels on this side of San Fran near the outer beach. Very clean and quaint. Breakfast offering were only fruits & pastries, no gluten free options. Nice pool and hot tub area. Close walk to beach. Only drawback was an alarm noise from a boat out in the marina the... More

Dear Laurie M, Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor. We are truly fortunate to have the location we do. No other area hotel offers the views and proximity to the ocean. We look forward to seeing you on your next Northern California trip. Best regards, Matthew Daubenspeck Front Office Manager Beach House Hotel ~ Half Moon Bay More

Stayed four nights, quiet, comfortable, good rooms although starting to look slightly shabby. Staff friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast in the lobby. Really good location on the beach. Good place to relax and use the surrounding area. Weather can sometimes misty but cool enough to be active.

This is my second time visiting this hotel in the last couple years. We booked the penthouse room and ended up on the third floor. The views are breathtaking!!! This is one of the best hotels on the coast. Checkout time is not until noon. That is nice because you can have plenty of time in the morning to have... More

This is one of the nicest beach hotels I have ever stayed in or even heard of. Stayed for three nights as a base for a long Northern California weekend and couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. The location is very beautiful - the beach is literally right out the back door but it is a quiet... More

Dear RockingRobin78704, Thank you for your kind post on Tripadvisor and it was a pleasure hosting you. We do try as much as possible to be environmentally conscience. This sentiment can be seen in our cups, cleaning products, even the biodegradable keys we use. We strive to minimize our impact on the local area. I do hope you will be... More

Have stayed here on business twice and both times, wished I was there with hubby! Very well done hotel with large rooms and great views. Very romantic and perfectly located for walks, bike riding and kayaking. Walking distance to great seafood restaurants.

We only stayed here one night, given the expense, but it was lovely. Our room looked out on the ocean/bay. There is a little deck to sit outside and enjoy the view and the sounds. The room is very comfortable, though my kids took the big bed and I took the couch bed, which was a couch bed, so only... More

Dear Jennifer H, Thank you for your post on Tripadvisor. The Beach House is a great jumping off point for activities of all ages. The Coastal Trail is ideal for biking or running; Sea Horse Ranch is perfect for horseback rides; and of course the Pacific Ocean is great for surfing, or viewing surfers catching a wave.

I was here for a business meeting. It's a lovely little boutique hotel. Don't expect a restaurant or bar-you need to get to the nearby restaurants which close early. Lovely, quiet rooms with sea views and pleasant attentive staff.

I had driven by the Beach House several times and thought it would be a great getaway for my husbands birthday in June.
