For the $350 price tag, I expected this hotel to be beyond compare, especially considering the otherwise low prices in Half Moon Bay, and I was very disappointed. The hotel was absolutely packed with people milling about, and even the golf course was full of tourists chatting with us as we sat on our patio to take in the view. I've stayed at many fabulous hotels and don't mind paying for it, but this is not one of them.
Further, the restaurant was an atrocity. Overpriced and so underwhelming we nearly considered going into town to supplement our meal. We brought a tiramisu cake for a friend's birthday since the hotel could not provide us with one, and they charged us $30 just to open the box. It wasn't a wedding, it was just dinner. The entire meal was over $700 and we were still starving!
Next time, i'd make the drive to San Francisco if I wanted top-notch!
