“DANGEROUS”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

I stayed in one of their suites and paid quite a lot considering what I got in return. The next morning we noticed that the smoke detector was not there, just the wires were hanging down from the ceiling. When we advised them that at the desk when we were leaving Taylor told us that they had been having issues with it and he knew that it wasnt working properly. But they still rented it out. We used the jacuzzi the night before, and after it drained it left a dark brown thick residue all over the tub.....when we advised them they said that maybe the lines hadn't been flushed after they had issues with their plumbing. We have no idea what we bathed in.....Front desk advised that general manager would contact me, no call ever came, even after I called several time to get a manager or owner or someone other than the front desk. General manager advised the front desk to tell me I had to wait until owners got back from vacation 1 to 2 weeks. Unexceptable!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Check out the room before giving any money. Its you safety and health that may be a risk!

As soon as i arrived i was helped very quickly. Taylor assisted me very well. He gave great direction to where everything was. He also gave me a great restaurant to go to. Taylor also helped out alot with extra towels that were needed. The overall stay was great. I will definitely stay again.

I'm giving this hotel an excellent rating as it provided us with everything we needed for an overnight stop. Room was clean (we didn't have a problem with any bugs as someone did in July), beds comfortable, room spacious, breakfast adequate. It was quiet as we didn't hear any highway traffic. Price is better than others in the area. The front desk was friendly and helpful. Housekeeping was nice enough to hold a lost article too. What more could you ask from a budget type hotel !

It is a fairly long walk to the beach but it didn't matter as it was very foggy and cool the weekend we were there.

Two words: BED BUGS. I stayed the nights of 27 & 28 July, 2012 in room #110. The room has BED BUGS. I was bit on my face, upper chest, arms, legs and feet. I emailed the manager about this and received no reply. I have reported the bed bugs to the Environmental Health Department of San Mateo County. If you bring bed bugs to your home, it is extremely difficult to deal with them and remove them, as they can live for up to a year, according to the health department. Considering all of this, there is no way I can give this facility any other rating. Front desk service was very good, but I did not realize the room was infested with bed bugs until the morning I departed at 0530.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

Thank you for posting your review, we appreciate your taking the time to give us your comments and we apologize for any convenience that you may have encountered while staying at our Inn. You will be happy to know that on September 5, at your request the San Mateo County Health System came to our hotel and inspected room 110, they found no signs of bed bugs during their inspection and have filed a report which is available through the San Mateo County Health System, the report is available through them or if you would like we can provide you with a copy. Also on September 5, The Best Pest Control Company did an inspection of the room and others around it and again they found no evidence of any bed bugs and we also have a report from the pest control company. If you would like a copy of the report from either the Health System or the pest control company please feel free to contact us and we would be happy to provide it for you.

We needed a room for one night in Half Moon Bay this past Sat. night and found this place to be a great value at under $100/night. The rooms are pretty spacious and the comfortable beds were the biggest plus of the room. We were only in the room to sleep and left early in the morning to explore Half Moon Bay. They do offer a continental breakfast if you want to eat there. The front desk clerk that checked us in was very friendly and accomodating. The rooms here are about $30/night cheapter than the Comfort Inn next door.

The property is in a good location, close to beaches, the harbor and downtown area of Half Moon Bay. A very nice choice for the budget traveler.

Room Tip: If you book a front room, just bring ear plugs for the highway traffic if it bothers you. :)

Great location in a beautiful place. Best value for money! Clean and very good service. We found this chain of hotels generally good to stay with around America.

We stayed here when it was still a Days Inn so as expected, it was functional and value for money. Half Moon Bay was cold when we were there but the room was warm The bed was comfortable and the room large but the furniture was a bit tired. The bathroom was clean and well supplied. Breakfast was good quality and made available in a small cramped room just off the lobby area. The lock to our room was dodgy and annoying to use . It isn't as close to the beach and other attractions as we thought. We drove into town for an excellent Thai meal one evening. In retrospect we would have only stayed here for one night as San Francisco, our next destination was in easy travelling distance.
