“Very Spacious Rooms - Bed ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We spent our 35th Wedding anniversary here! It was a delight to have so much room to spread out in. The colors and decor were very relaxing. I did not like the foghorn one bit. The management graciously provides ear plugs, however if you're a light sleeper you should bring heavy duty ones. The bed was okay, had valleys in it which I find is he case with lots of beds that are King Size. My only complaint was we choose the anniversary package which included wine and chocolates. The wine was not a California wine. It would be great with all the winery's around the area to have a local one provided. I'm a shop local, eat local person.

Room Tip: Choose a corner room.

We decided to go on a belated anniversary/birthday trip, and chose Half Moon Bay as our destination. When looking for a place to stay, I thought that The Inn at Mavericks sounded like the perfect spot...and we were not disappointed! The room was amazing. A big comfortable bed, fireplace, huge bathroom and tub, patio with a beautiful view...there is so much to love and appreciate about the inn. We will definitely be coming back!!

What a beautiful inn and the view is to die for! the patio for dogs is great tho my dogs preferred the empty field next door! Attention to detail , doggie treats, snacks in the room, really special! BUT, no smoking, not even at the firepit.

Allen the manager very engaged, very caring!

Beautiful rooms, great decor, but we found the beds too soft. some kind of foam bed it seemed, with high in the middle and low where we lay. Great linens and comforters but the beds just didn't work for us.

Room Tip: if you have a dog, go for the first floors, great patios!

Unfortunately we were on a whirlwind trip but really wanted to hit Half Moon Bay even if just for one night. The Inn at Mavericks did not disappoint. We stayed in the Mavericks corner suite with patio and it was cool to see the seals and birds. Love the binoculars in the room! The foghorn did not bother us at all-it was very comforting.
The room was spotless and there was nothing one could want for as there were drinks, wine, champagne, snacks, coffee, etc. Look forward to coming back when we can stay awhile when the surf is up!

Room Tip: if you want a particular room call ahead and speak with owner to assure it's availability!

We stayed one night in the Montara Room, a corner king. The room was large and quite lovely. It was clean, decorated beautifully and had a wonderful view of the bay. The bathroom was also large and lovely and the soaking tub was heavenly. The basket of snacks was a very nice touch. It was within easy walking distance of many restaurants. I ordered the Anniversary/Honeymoon package. The wine that came with it was wonderful. The bottle of champagne was actually two small, cheap twist off bottles of sparkling wine that was undrinkable and that was my only disappointment. Other than that, it was perfect!

We stayed one night in Mavericks 1 (corner unit with a patio). The room was huge with perfect bay views. The room was udpated, clean and has a wonderful bathtub! All the details are tended to, from a very comfortable bed to to-go coffee cups. The property is within walking distance to plenty of restaurants and was easy to find. As other travelers have said, if you are light sleeper, bring earplugs. We didn't have a problem with the fog horn, but I can see a light sleeper having trouble. Highly recommended Inn!

We stayed two nights in the Dunes room. It is an upstairs corner room with a good view of the harbor. The room is fairly large with a great bed! Quiet, too with the exception of the fog horn which we found curiously soothing. The bed was very comfortable. Owner very friendly.
