Spent just one night here but enjoyed it so much that we've already booked a return visit. Room had every comfort one could need and was conveniently located to services within walking distance. Did not find the location odd as some reviews have mentioned nor was the foghorn bothersome for either myself or my husband.

You will not be disappointed here! Close to dining, hiking, and fun! Staff is pleasant and the amenities are perfect! Total relaxation! The bathroom has a wonderful soaking tub and luxury all the way. We so enjoy the warm bathrobes! The fireplace is amazing and kept us warm and toasty day and night! You will love this harbor view facing... More

The Inn at Mavericks sport six rooms with incredible views. It's located in a quiet neighborhood right on the harbor, easy walking distance from the Half Moon Bay Brewery, Mezza Luna and several other good restaurants. Price is affordable relative to other Half Moon Bay hotels.

Although we certainly share other's reviews that the room was very nicely appointed, clean, and of course a great view, we were quite disappointed that upon arriving, our key was in a box with a note. No one to greet us (nor thank us as we left). We've stayed in other similar places in the area, and were always welcomed... More

Lovely inn at the north edge of town, on a marina. Very nice neighborhood, easy walk to food. Fairly expensive, but, waterfront. There is no air conditioning, which is ok if the breezes are up. The foghorn is constant, but, being from new england, found it felt like home. No breakfast is offered, I would probably try somewhere less expensive... More

We just finished a three-night stay in room #5, upstairs. As mentioned by others, the sounds of the sea creatures and foghorn are consistently present but we would expect that from a waterside inn. The earplugs helped my husband with sleep but I didn't need them. Inn at Mavericks isn't for the person who wants the big hotel experience but... More

Great view. Great room that is extremely well-appointed and spacious. Loved it. Amenities include microwave, mini-fridge, and plates etc for four. July 2014 We stayed on the 2nd floor - have looked at the other two rooms upstairs. Any would be great. The fog horn mentioned by many was not a big deal to us. It fades into the background....

We stayed in an upstairs room with king bed, deck with nice chairs, fireplace, fridge, microwave and nice amenities. Beautiful views of the bay and ocean. Listen to the fog horn in the distance. Watching the birds diving into the bay which was filled with anchovies and the fishing boats coming and going from the harbor. Walking distance to nice... More

Was delightfully surprised at how beautiful my room was! Felt completely spoiled here... Brought my pup; stayed in the Flat Rock Suite. Had a private grassy patio complete with lounging chairs and table to watch the sunset :) Housekeeping was so friendly and accommodating. Innkeeper, Melissa Rey, was a delightful as they come! ...even had a doggie basket waiting for... More

The room is lovely, the view is fantastic, the location is great for those who like to be near, but not in, the busy tourist area. The only negative is the fog horn which blasts every 10 seconds, 24 hours a day. The weather was cool during our stay, so we closed the harbor-side door and windows at night. With... More
