Our stay at the Beach House Inn at HMB was great, the location was centralized to everything we wanted to do. The area was quiet and we had a great view of Pillar Point Harbor, our room was clean and very comfortable and what a pleasure to come back each evening and be able to start a fire to take... More

The location of the hotel was great and the room facing the bay was comfortable. The staff was friendly and all was good. The location is perfect in that it's right next to Sam's Chowder House and the walking/running trails. My central complaint is that the Fog Horn goes all day/night despite the lack of fog so there is a... More

I've stayed here a few times and have always left satisfied. Of all the places to stay in Half Moon Bay, this is definitely the best stay in terms of value and location. You're in walking distance to several great restaurants and as close as you can get to the beach! It can be a little noisy by the highway,... More

I recently went to a 40 year High School Reunion in Half Moon Bay and stayed at this Hotel. It was a wonderfully authentic experience. Having been a former resident of the area, I thought the Hotel would just be some generic place, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a Hotel with true HMB beach character. My room over... More

Nice hotel. We stayed in one of the 3rd floor 'junior penthouse' rooms. The pictures on the hotel website, and of course the name 'penthouse', caused us to expect a larger suite. The room we occupied was a little bit larger than a standard room in a mid-level hotel. It does feature a 'raised' sleeping area (you walk down 3... More

We are glad to hear the guest enjoyed the amenities in our rooms. All of our rooms come with these lovely amenities... Our rooms are very nicely appointed junior suites at 400 square feet. The term "junior suite" indicates that the room is all one space and does not have a full seperation. Especially in our rooms which face the... More

This hotel is so charming! The rooms is huge, with a king bed and a very large sofa sleeper plus two chairs. The entertainment center could be updated. It was a great place to bring the kids with a wonderful morning continental breakfast.

My family spent a few nights at the Beach House in July 2012. I was very satisfied with the experience. The staff were very nice and helpful. Free parking and continental breakfast. The room was very spacious, clean and cozy. Some have complained about the fog horn but we slept with the sliding door open and were not bothered by... More

We had a very nice third floor loft ocean view room. It was beautifully decorated and we enjoyed the balcony and fireplace. It is a very relaxing location. Two of us slept through the fog horn but the other had a restless sleep because of it. Every 10 seconds seems extreme but as they've mentioned, they're only following the rules.... More

My wife and I happened upon this place back in 2004 on a brief California trip before we had kids. We loved everything about our short stay and warmly reminisced about it afterward, looking forward to taking our children there. We finally got that chance and recently stayed there two nights in early April. It wasn't quite what we remembered... More

We've stayed here years ago when they first opened. It was our favorite weekend get away. Even though we only lived 1 1/2 hours away, we would come here to unwind and get a great night sleep in their amazing beds. We moved away for a few years but now that we're back, we're picking up the tradition again and... More
