We stayed here over night pre departure out of SFO after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. 30 minute drive to SFO and I would still highly recommend the extra drive for this relaxing gem of a hotel. We stayed in a penthouse 3 rd floor suite. We enjoyed the fireplace and left our doors open at night. The fog horn... More

Don't get me wrong...this hotel is very nice, right on the ocean and we wanted a room facing the ocean so we could hear the fog horns all night long off the balcony. We even got a corner room which is especially nice. We reserved what they called a Penthouse Suite on the top floor. Somehow I got the idea... More

We read the reviews on Trip Advisor and went for the Jr Suite. Glad we did. Spacious end/corner room, top floor so there was a great view. Patio with a couple of very new chairs. There was a fireplace(that we didn't use). microwave, refrigerator. assorted utensils and even a teapot. There were two TV's. One across from the sofa/seating area... More

Dear lesliedon1983, Thank you for your post on Tripadvisor. Our rooms are very comfortably appointed with all the comforts of your home and the views of a vacation home. The fog horn is ever present on the coast and yes, with the windows and sliding door closed, the horn is barely noticeable. We look forward to your next visit. Best... More

We attended a wedding in Half Moon Bay on June 13 and stayed at the Beach House. We found the room to be very comfortable and clean and enjoyed the layout of our junior suite. We also found the staff very professional and accommodating. From our balcony we could see the ocean and enjoyed the breeze though our screen door.... More

I had to go HMB for a work event but the hotel made work a pleasure! I was able to leave my 3rd floor suite's sliding glass down open at night to hear the waves on the beach right outside my bedroom. I went for early morning walks along the beach to the pier. The staff was extremely friendly and... More

Beautiful location and nice and comfortable rooms. The staff was also friendly. Previously stayed at the nearby resort and Beach House was great with even more to offer. Heated pool was a big plus! Will definitely return soon!

Two of my sisters and I were driving up PCH and this was an overnight stop for us. Beautiful view of the bay! We had a suite on the ground floor.. Room size was good for the three of us, but a little outdated, in my opinion. But you can't beat that view!! The appliances looked useable, but we didn't... More

We have stayed at the Beach House 3 times over the years. The staff has been amazingly nice and helpful, the rooms clean, views beautiful and the 2 massages have been fantastic. I love that we can walk to the beach and the harbor and to many fine restaurants. Can't wait to return!
