We needed a quick overnight stop on our way north on Highway 1. The hotel had decent reviews and a good price so we gave it a try.
Half Moon Bay Lodge was recently converted from a Best Western and it's obvious they are working hard to establish it as a premier property, (we passed a section of rooms being renovated and updated with new fixtures.) Friendly check-in staff provided fresh fruit, cookies, and restaurant recommendations. Since our room had a mini fridge but no freezer section they also took our cooler's cold pack to refreeze.
The room was large with a comfortable bed, large flat screen TV, and a deck that overlooked the golf course at the nearby Ritz Carlton. The morning breakfast was more than continental with scrambled eggs, sausage, custom waffles, and all the other usual suspects, i.e., cereal, breads, yogurt, & beverages.
The hotel is located just south of downtown and easy to reach by car.
