We stayed 4 nights. Location very good -- easy to reach sites of great beauty: the ocean (15 min. walking or 5 min. driving), Coastside Trail, Pursima Creek Preserve, the town of Half Moon Bay. Surprisingly, only 40 mins.+/- from SFO. Small, quiet and relaxing, all rooms open in the rear to manicured gardens and golf course vistas. Our "basic" 1st floor room was unexpectedly large and well-appointed, including private patio, refrigerator and sink at entry that could serve as a wet bar. Our relatives' "basic" room on 2nd floor seemed even larger with cathedral ceilings and a balcony. Pool, hot tub beautifully maintained; also a small exercise room with sauna. "Continental Breakfast" included real scrambled eggs replenished frequently, waffles, sausage, juices, teas and coffee, plus an array of pastries and breads which delighted my husband. The lovely breakfast room overlooking the pool was quiet, charming, and had classical music playing - no TV blaring! Hotel doesn't have its own restaurant for lunch and dinner, but Joe's, right in front of the hotel, on Hwy.1, has good fresh, well-prepared food and will provide room service. Good beds. Any request was met with an immediate and helpful response. Virtually everything about Half Moon Bay Lodge was better than expected. The value is exceptional, if you reserve via hotel website. I've been traveling for business over 20 years and stayed in hundreds of hotels/motels - couldn't have been more pleased!
