My husband and I enjoyed a lovely midweek night away. We thought this hotel was a good value and simple gem. Pros: Friendly staff to great us and offered us a nice glass of wine to sip as she showed us the room. Clean, cute room. Free internet with no complicated code to log into. Comfortable bed.

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. We strive to provide a pleasant experience for our guests and appreciate your feedback. We hope your future travels bring you back to the Half Moon Bay Inn.

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 &...

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...

What a neat place in the heart of Main Street! I would love to go here again. A little boutique hotel, all the rooms are different, we got to peek in several of them and found them all delightful. Tea and coffee is available all day/night at a charming spot on the second floor where magazines and newspapers are also...

There are so many words I could use to describe the Half Moon Bay Inn! Everything from charming, elegant, classy, well thought out, warm...

We booked a couple nights last spring while our house was being re-roofed. I had a terrible cold and we had no plan or reservations, just needed a quiet place with vacancy. We had been curious about HMB Inn but had never checked it out. They did have a room available so we booked for the next two nights. I...

Very much enjoyed our stay at the Half Moon Bay Inn. I had read reviews that it could be noisy but our room was quiet all night (we faced the side street, Mill St.). We stayed in one of the Kitchen Suites. The kitchen was all yellow and so charming. Yellow is my fav color so I may be biased....

We stayed in the Downtown Suite (because everything else was booked) and this was definitely a suite, including kitchen. We loved the room, the beds were so comfortable,.. it was very warm so we slept with the windows opened and were not bothered at all by outside noise. The kitchen had everything you needed, and a nice Krups coffee maker....

We were here for 2 nights Friday-Sunday. Family Colossal King. I'm surprised this one got a 4/5. I generally trust TripAdvisor traveler's comments, but this one was definitely a miss.

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your stay at the Half Moon Bay Inn. When you made your original booking online, you had an interior room that would have been away from any city noises. You said it was for two people. You called and changed the room to the Family Colossal King. It has a king bed and a...
