“Great place for family esp. if have a pet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2010

We were very pleased with our stay at Days Inn in Half Moon Bay. Lodging is expensive there, so we were very pleased to find that we could stay there for $117 (with tax) plus an extra $10 for our dog. That included a very well appointed, clean room, a lovely continental breakfast in a sunny room off the lobby, and a short walk of 2 blocks to the beach.
We will go back! We live in the Bay Area but it's lovely to be in Half Moon Bay at night to enjoy the wonderful dining, lights over the water, etc.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2010

The room was very nice, large with refrig, microwave, satellite TV, coffeemaker & free fast wi-fi. Small couch & coffee table. Only minor probem was that my room key cards twice became de-magnetized or simply wouldn't open the door lock. However, the desk clerk promptly re-magnetized them both times and the second time came & cleaned the lock & I had no problem after that. Altho the room was nice, I think $100 for a single in March is a little pricy, but that's just me, as the price was among the best in the area per my Internet search.

Very good hotel. A bit noisy due the nearby highway but not bad. Huge, clean rooms with everything including hdtv. Good breakfast, too. A short walk to the beach.

Large room, very comfortable. Very close to beaches and coast. We ended our California trip here. Easy 1/2 hr drive to San Francisco International airport without staying in the city at higher rates. Rate here was $99/nite. Excellant beaches and state parks nearby with lots of beautiful coast.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2009

Stayed there for 4 days for a wedding. Rooms are very spacious and clean, every room has new flat screens, mini fridge, microwave. Continental breakfast inc. Not much of a view and its by the highway, I expected highway noise and was pleasantly surprised when I didn't hear any. The only problem we encountered was the shortage of towels, had to keep reminding the desk to drop some of at the room (easily corrected). If your looking to spend a few days out there its worth the money, its pretty inexpensive compared to other hotels in the area an its about 45min fron san francisco

We wanted a couple of days by the sea before starting our drive around California so booked this motel.
I have to say that Half Moon Bay is soooo disappointing. There is NOTHING to do there and as the weather wasn't great either we couldn't even just appreciate the coastline.
BUT back to the motel review...

We arrived after a really long 13hr flight from the UK and we were over-tired, needing a shower and hungry.
The lady at reception was lovely and couldn't be more helpful. She gave us a whole bunch of menus to order food delivery (and even offered to order it for us).
Our room was great! Ground floor and right by the reception. The room was very big with 2 lovely beds, a table and chairs, desk ad TV unit.
The motel was quiet (we didn't really see or hear anyone else in our 2 night stay.
The mexican restaurant next door does excellent burritos!
If you need o be in this area then i would definately recommend this motel.

Stayead here one night during the second week of February, 2008. The phone did not work in our first room but did in the second one. Entire motel lost power 3 times in the late evening, the first 2 times for about 10 minutes each, the third time it was out for about 45 minutes.
Overall it was a decent motel for its price.

The hotel apologigizes for any inconvenience
this power outage caused, however this was
NOT a property issue. Situations may occur
whether you are home or out and about. and in most cases such as this was beyond the control of our staff. (A City Transformer caught on fire and wiped out almost every part of Half Moon Bay (as well as the northern neighboring townships of Miramar, El Granada and Princeton by the sea . )
