Charming boutique hotel in a very pretty spot, close to San Francisco, so we added 2 nights here to our city trip. The room is not an actual suite, though the living room and bedroom are divided by a step or two (I almost tripped on it). Spotless and well appointed, My spouse was unhappy with the bed. I enjoyed... More

There's nothing like an ocean breeze kissing your skin, while relaxing in the hot tub with family and other travelers. This boutique hotel with an old world charm and elegance, was a perfect place to land to explore Pillar Point and Half Moon Bay. The evening reception with free wine and snacks and the continental breakfast were well stocked with... More

QueenJB22, Thank you for your post on Tripadvisor. I apologize that Housekeeping cane so early. I know how I don't like to be rushed on my departure days, but I am glad to learn you enjoyed the room comforts so much. We really are a home away from home, and hope to be yours too.

Everything was perfect! I wish we could have stayed longer! We stayed on the first floor and had the most amazing view. Walking distance to several restaurants. Hotel staff was very helpful. We will definitely go back!

I had a girls getaway with my daughter at this place. We had a partial view room on the third floor and we were very happy with our choice. We could see empty lot with grasses and the restaurant next door but we could also see a very nice bay and that beautiful hills beyond that. Sunset from this room... More

First of all, I would never come to Half Moon Bay if it were not for a friend's wedding. It is so bland! It's cold, there are hardly any trees. It's the most boring landscape- even the ocean looks boring here. One thing about my travels I've noticed is that most travelers are big drinkers. I'm sure after a few... More

Our room was HUGE! Very sunny and had a great view of the bay. There was lots of room for those who needed desk space, a little kitchenette, and a huge bathroom. We even enjoyed the fireplace. All was clean and comfortable. However, there was road noise and part of our view included the RV park next door. The breakfast... More

Dear CMelloh, Thank you for your post on Tripadvisor. We are blessed to have some of the largest rooms on the coast. Our Partial View Junior Suites are a great option. They are located on the north or south sides of the hotel. They don't have a full ocean view, but the Pacific can be easily seen from the balconies.... More

I have been bringing my daughters every year since they were 2 yrs old ( they are now 11) the rooms and views of the harbor are absolutely beautiful! It's conveniently located to tide pools, downtown and one of our favorite little gems Catch Joanne's. The girls highlight is always the pool and hot tub that over look the beach!... More

We enjoyed a couple of days here, and it is a nice place. It had a small kitchen, a living room with a couch, and a balcony. It is nothing fancy, and could clearly use an update, but it is comfortable and in a great location. We walked on the trail, enjoyed the porch overlooking the ocean, and watched the... More

Excellent views and just a short walk to Sam's Seafood. Was able to block out the fog horn after the first night. We were not prepared for the lack of air conditioning but, with the cool weather we just left the windows open during the day and closed them in the evening.

Nice waterfront property BUT if you have standard suite be prepared to be on top of the parking lot and Route 1. I did not want this, seemed somewhat less than secure as right next to parking lot so I paid more to upgrade to ocean facing suite which was nice but not worth the price. Comfort Inn is just...

Dear Shetho, Thank you for sharing your comments on Tripadvisor. I'm sorry to learn that your experience at the Beach House wasn't up to your expectations. Half Moon Bay is an extremely safe community and even more so on property since we do have our own security. Comfort Inn is a great economy option in town, but as you can... More
