“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

My husband and I stayed for one night at your hotel and one at another local hotel and wished we would have stayed the second night at your hotel, your hotel was fabulous, very clean, comfortable bed, and the view was fantastic. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Sincerely,
Jennifer Lonas

The oceanview room was beautiful. It had a stove, microwave, refrigerator (no freezer), toaster. Great walking trail between the hotel and ocean/bay. My only negative would be that it is not necessary a smoke free hotel. Smoking is allowed on the room's balcony, unless someone complains (stated to me when I called the front desk). We had too many people smoking around us that we stayed inside the room. Not what we wanted. I wish the hotel was "truly" smoke free.

A recent weekend getaway to Half Moon Bay was a fabulous experience thanks to a great stay at the Beach House. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the room was modern and clean, and the view was amazing. We were welcomed with wine and cheese, had an great weekend and completed our stay with a dip in the (very clean) hot tub and a good breakfast. It's not cheap, but the location and overall experience made it a fantastic value for great quality. We loved our stay and can't wait to come back - a great romantic getaway!

Living in the bay area, this makes for a really easy and relaxing getaway without having to drive very far.

The room had a great view of the ocean and harbor. When in the room, we didn't hear anything else. Everybody was incredibly friendly, and we had a very relaxing couples massage. I have no complaints at all.

After my recent (4th) stay here in 2 years, I recognize that this place really suits my needs. Besides all of the amenities at the hotel itself and the terrific staff, the location is just perfect. You can walk to a picturesque, working harbor and look at the boats, watch the children play on the beach, watch the surfers, eat the freshest possible seafood, walk for miles along the water, rent a bike.........all without ever getting into your car! I can say that the breakfast is much better now than it was at my first stay in 2011. If you want a hot morning meal, try the cafe at the airport just to the north a couple of miles, it's really good too.

Room Tip: If you pick the room without any ocean view you may find it disappointing- I'd advise you to spe...

Our view from the penthouse suite was breath taking! From the moment we arrived, we were given excellent customer service. Our room was perfect, from our robes to our pillows! We enjoyed the evening reception and the morning breakfast. Our stay was perfect! Thank you for such a warm welcome and a romantic getaway!

My husband and I stayed at the beach house for 2 nights to celebrate my birthday. The hotel was wonderful and we would certainly stay here again. The perks include:

- ocean front view from most rooms.
- fireplace with duraflame log provided each day along with easy to light matches. Great ambiance in the room.
- quick easy to access continental breakfast to start the day.
- friendly staff
- comfortable beds
- Large rooms with a kitchen area stocked with wine glasses, plates, cups silverware, 2 burner stove, toaster, etc. You could make small meals if you wanted I suppose. We took a bottle of wine back to the hotel and it was great to have the things we needed already provided.
- massage services on site. We had a couples massage.
- Location is fabulous. Sam's Chowder House is next door or you can walk about 10 minutes along the water to the harbor area where there are 5+ restaurants/bars. We visited Half Moon Bay Brewing Company just past the harbor and had a great lunch (claim chowder there is better than at Sam's Chowder House). Wonderful to be able to walk and not worry about driving.

We are already planning to head back to HMB later this year and we will be booking at Beach House again. Don't hesitate to stay here....you won't be sorry.

(PS - the rooms on the North end of the that are partial ocean view do look at towards Sam's Chowder House so I would imagine the view of the back of the restaurant isn't ideal. Just FYI.)
