We had the downstairs studio round the side. It was 1950s diner style, spacious and very well appointed. Real quality kitchen accessories and a lovely dining area made it ideal for families wishing to self-cater. Lovely toiletries, comfy beds in a lovely small town America environment. Highly recommended.

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.

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!

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.
