While booking hotels you always suspect the pictures are nicer than the actual property. This boutique hotel is even more impressive in person! Friendly front desk service with a nice welcoming glass of wine. The proprietor of this little gem has paid attention to the details of a comfotable stay. I walked around taking pictures of the painted frescoes and... More

My Husband and I headed up Coastal California for our 26th wedding anniversary and we were looking for Boutique Hotels along the way. We were so happy to find HMB Inn. At Check in we were greeted very down to earth and super friendly by 2 Ladies that gave us a glass of wine and brought us to our room.... More

We stayed at Half Moon Bay Inn for 4 nights last summer and found it to be well-located and welcoming. The room we had was a small, inside room with no view but also not on the street, so quiet. The Inn is at an intersection of 2 small streets and over a bustling restaurant. There is also a popular... More

We only had a one night stay but what a cute little place this is! The bed was humongous and incredibly comfy. It really had an old inn feel but the rooms were modern and spacious. Lovely bathrooms too. Also check out the amazing Italian beneath! We would love to visit again, the whole experience felt very personal. Lovely hotel!

Pleasant check in, got showed to quite nice room with shared patio. Comfy bed but hot overnight. We didn't get offered any wine, shame. We did have a nice stay but we did mention the bathroom sink has a large starburst crack, looked like been there a while. Don't think they were very impressed that we said about it. It... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you weren't offered wine. We have it available for our guests anytime they would like it. Sorry for the misunderstanding. The sink has been replaced.

Thank you so much for your review. Ironically, because June was warmer than normal, I have already ordered ceiling fans for most of our rooms. They should be installed shortly.

My husband and I ended our week long adventure in California at the Half Moon Bay Inn. We wanted our last night to be near the airport, but away from the hustle and bustle. This location was perfect for that. The town is quaint and quiet & the Inn provided the "homey" feeling we were looking for. Unique decor &... More

I was pleasantly surprised. I thought it might be noisy being right downtown but did not hear a thing. Extremely clean. Very comfortable. Perfect location. Pet friendly. There was a wonderful Italian restaurant in the same building. Near bakery, beaches, horse back riding. Lots of fun.

This is definitely not a full service inn. I arrived after 7pm and there was no one there to greet me (office closes at 7pm), but the key was left for me, my cc was charged and I was left a parking pass. The next morning, I was woken up abruptly at 7am by trucks unloading directly outside my room... More
