Dac + Patricia at the Front Desk went above & beyond to accommodate our special requests. Jerry in Service was equally professional and courteous in meeting our needs. The Aveda amenities, Frette linens and other thoughtful extras (tea kettles, tableware, appliances...) made the accommodations home-like and inviting. Overall, the wonderfully attentive and accommodating staff and well-maintained facilities and beautiful grounds... More

Paid for a partial ocean view...my view was an RV Park, a TV satellite, kitchen exhaust fan, and some other big unit blocking the view to the left and the center. I could see water way to the left if I stood up on the balcony. Ocean not visible from the balcony or the sitting area if you were seated... More

We stayed here by chance as we travelled up Hwy 1, and called in to see if they had any available rooms. I'm really glad we did as this was a fantastic stay. The rooms were huge, with a large bed, kitchenette and sofa area, and even though we didn't have a seaview we only had to walk around the... More

We always enjoy staying at Beach House at Half Moon Bay. The rooms are well kept, well stocked with kitchen utensils and have great wi-fi connection.

My husband and I only live about 30 minutes away from this place, but it always feels like you're in another world. Peaceful and right by the water - a perfect place to get away for a night or two to recharge over the weekend. The fog horn is now an old friend!

Dear selving37, Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor. The Beach House is within a 45 minute drive of more than a million and a half people; yet when you come to Half Moon Bay, you feel separated from the rest of the world.

I saw something beautiful, new, funny, like a bird with a coveted crumb, a flock of red winged blackbirds, the feet of a duck furiously paddling about, the same orange cat IHave seen here every year for four years, dogs meeting and greeting on the path below my balcony. Every ten seconds, I enjoyed something comfy and pleasant in my... More

We had a lovely stay at the Beach House. It is located right on the harbor in El Granada/Half Moon Bay. We had a gorgeous view of the ocean. The hotel has a nice pool and spa. One thing you should know is that there is a fog horn (yes, it is very foggy on the coast) and it goes... More

Love the Beach House. We have stayed here several times. We love the layout of the rooms, easy access to the bay and views!

Our recent stay at the Beach House in Half Moon Bay was extremely pleasant and the view was spectacular. The room was clean and had all the amenities you could ever want. This is one of our favorite hotels to stay in and made for a great anniversary stay. We will be back.
