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

We were looking for relaxing and romantic getaway to celebrate a 20th anniversary. We love the coast and wanted to wake up to the ocean and sound of the waves... Pros: Rooms are nice and large, with comfy beds and luxurious linens, robes. Oceanview rooms provide very nice views. Breakfast included. The little kitchenette is helpful for eating in the... More

I loved this place. It's not pretentious, doesn't offer world-class pampering, and has a limited amount of amenities. What it does have, though, is a wonderfully relaxing and welcoming environment that would be very difficult to beat. The rooms are comfortably worn in and have everything you need for a "get away from it all" weekend. I can't imagine a... More

The Beach House is in Granada, about a 5 minute drive from the main town in Half Moon Bay. Although it's right on Hwy 1, our room faced the ocean and didn't get any traffic noise. Lots of positives about the inn and a couple of negatives. We were in HMB primarily to play golf and didn't want to spring... More

Dear HoffersHawaii, Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor. We are very pleased that you had a pleasant stay with us. The fog horn is either loved or a source of annoyance although many guests can sort out the sound. We also provide earplugs just in case.

We stayed 1 night in the Beach House Hotel in July; the reception staff were friendly, the room had all the facilities as described and unlike other travellers we were not disturbed by the nearby foghorn. However the decor is dated and worn, the entrance hall mats stained and dirty, the bed linen in our room was marked and not... More

Always one of my favorite hotels to stay at when in Half Moon Bay. Prefer the Penthouse suite, 3rd floor, in the middle for the view and privacy. Nice to go in the off-season for the reduced rates, though. Love the comfy bed, the floor plan, use of Duraflame logs in the fireplace, the view(of course) and the complimentary breakfast:high...

Dear Kathleen F, Thank you for your comments as well as being a committed patron of the Beach House Hotel. The "off-season" is still a fabulous time to visit Half Moon Bay. In fact, we have the best sunsets in November and December. We look forward to your next visit. Best regards, Matthew Daubenspeck Front Office Manager Beach House Hotel... More

The room had lots of nice touches--a lock box, refrigerator, dishes, fluffy towels, super nice comforter and bedding, etc. I loved that they provided a bathtub and a separate shower. Even though we did not have an oceanside view, we had a nice view of the side of the bay and the sky. The breakfast was nice, but I would... More
