My wife and I lived in Half-Moon Bay back in the 1990's and we were driving from Carmel to Yosemite so we decided to stay in HMB for a night. We chose The Inn at Mavericks because it looked kind of cool and it was right on the water. When we got there, we found an envelope with our name on it but no staff. We checked ourselves in, lamenting that we had stayed in a five star resort the night before and now we were in a one star. However, the room was nice, with a wood stove and a beautiful view. The next morning, the hot water ran out during my shower. The amenities are okay, but this is really a motel and not an inn. A nice plus was that it came with a complimentary membership to the fitness club across the street. We worked out there and it was nice.
