The Inn at the Mavericks is lovely. It was exceptionally quiet (except for the appropriate fog horn), immaculately clean and a gorgeous view. The cleaning ladies were very accommodating and helpful. When we arrived at the Inn early to see what time we could check in, our room was made ready for us while we sat on the patio and... More

There was a problem with the TV in the Mavericks room. This problem was with the cable box itself, not the actual TV. The picture was set to "ZOOM" whenever it was on an HD channel. I know because my parents have Dish Network and I've resolved a similar issue with their TV. I didn't get a response from the... More

First things first: 3-star rating notwithstanding, I enjoyed my short stay. While there are several 4-star elements about the Inn at Mavericks (see below), I didn't give it an overall 4-star rating because I am quite picky and some things about it are, honestly, not 4-star ready. The non-4-star elements include the very thin entryway door with the cheap lock,... More

If you are a light sleeper or do not like the 24/7 sound of a loud foghorn while you are trying to sleep, I strongly suggest staying somewhere else. There is a very brief mention of the foghorn buried in the website, but not prominent enough for us to catch it or we wouldn't have stayed here. The WiFi was... More

This is a small Inn right on the water of Half Moon Bay. It's just down a back road, but away from the traffic and hub-bub of the more commercial accommodations nearer to HW 1. We discovered it from a friend four years ago, and it's now the regular annual getaway on my significant other's birthday. (Same room next year... More

The rooms are wonderful, the views from the rooms spectacular, the amenities all you might need. What more could you want in an oceanside spot. Really a perfect get away or vacation spot for exploring the Bay Area coast.

In the 48 hours we were there, we never saw or spoke to any hotel staff. A key was left for us outside the office door and we left the key in the room when we left. The room and bathroom were spacious and the view from the balcony toward the Bay was nice but the constant fog horn was... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Inn at Mavericks - to enjoy the beach and introduce our young dog to the sand and ocean. Our accommodations and location couldn't have been more perfect.

We stayed at this Inn for an anniversary weekend for my parents 52nd. Our whole family was there, including 3 kids and we took up 3 rooms. When I called to book the rooms I spoke with a wonderful Inn Keeper named Melissa. I had booked early so we had the pick of any of the rooms and Melissa was... More
