Picture a view of a serene harbor, anchored sailboats dotting the water, a magnificent breakwater all seen from your balcony overhanging a miles long walkway boardering a miles long beach. The rooms are just what you need...comfortable size living room with fireplace, small kitchenette, desk for working, and TV's is both bedroom area and main room. In the mornings, a... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times and it never disappoints. Can't wait to return! The rooms are clean, the staff very friendly and the continental breakfast is always amazing. Loved using the pool and hot tub after a long day of travel.

3 of us (myself, wife and 12 yo daughter) came here for a quick getaway following a work trip to the Bay Area. Beach House staff were fantastic: knowledgeable, kind and helpful. We were upgraded to a large ocean view room on the second floor, which was ample for the three of us and four bags. Two v small niggles:... More

Lovely continental breakfast. Beautiful harbor view. Nicely appointed room with mini kitchen (small fridge, two-burner stove, tea kettle, plates and glasses). Small but adequate pool. View of the beach from the hot tub.

Writing this review as I am sitting on my balcony at the Beach House! Noisy!!! Road noise from highway, a band for a special event outside at Sam's Chowder House next door, fog horn every 8 seconds, and hoards of sea birds. All that for the price of a third floor penthouse suite. Ridiculous. Stayed at the Cypress Inn last... More

This hotel is attractive with a nice pool and hot tub area. The suites are very small, though. With the sofabed open, there is very little room to walk around. The bathrooms were good size, though. We had a ground floor room which was badly in need of air conditioning. Even in cool weather, the room gets very warm. Obviously... More

Lovely setting with great amenities. Perfect place for a romantic getaway or to spend time with friends and family. Close to amazing restaurants and outdoor activities. Rooms are in effect suites and are well laid out to provide maximum usage. Lovely fireplace in each room, complete with easy to use fuel.

We needed a nice spot to do an offsite not to far from SF and the Beach House is perfect for that. The guest rooms are very nice - most with ocean views and the beds very comfy. They don't have an on site restaurant but Sam's is next door and they have great catering for breakfast and lunch. And... More

Dear Amy B, Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor. We host many Bay Area companies that are looking for an intimate, non-corporate meeting space. All of our catering is done in-house; and if you liked the veggie chips, you would really like the chocolate covered popcorn! We look forward to hosting you and your family in the future. Best...

We chose the Beach House at Half Moon Bay for our "early" anniversary get-away. It certainly didn't disappoint. We had a second floor room overlooking the bay. Very nice in the evening with a glass of wine. Rooms are quiet and well kept. Essentially you want for nothing (the exception being a shortage of coffee fixings in the room). The... More

Our ocean view room was cute and clean but very small. The furniture is kinda tired and not very comfortable. Although the bed was very comfortable. I would find it very difficult to stay here with more than two people. My husband and I were tripping over each other just trying to get dressed in the so called bedroom. Which... More
