The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. They showed me and my small dog to our room. The room was very beautiful and comfortable. The room overlooked the main street, right above an Italian resturant. The noise was minimual and tolerated. I had a great time and an excellent stay. I would definitely stay here again.

As mentioned in other reviews, this place is beautifully decorated, very vintage. Desk clerk was great, room was beautiful and clean (rugs need washed/cleaned ladies!!) Bed was comfy, nice linens, towels, bathroom was super clean. We rented the smaller room (over the restaurant vent fan and the outdoor patio of the restaurant) on a Tues night. Big mistake. Apparently, HMB... More

Only just down the coast from Pacifica but its a different planet. Pacifica is rough atound the edges and lacks any real quality eateries. HMB seems to have food style in buckets and the HMB " it's Italia" is the top of the pile. Above this joint is the HMB Inn, so be prepared to party with the crowd or... More

We're still on our first night, so it's early to give a review... We took the Piccolo room (tiny) but for a night or 2 it's fine. This is an old hotel and it only has a few rooms. No elevator, but only 2 floors. Perfect location, and very comfy. Very into making you feel like you can walk down... More

A sweet place to stay in downtown Half Moon Bay- a small coastal town-20 miles south of San Francisco. The rooms are all restored from a former dive hotel - great touches, such as nice robes out to little deck equipped with adirondack chairs and an ice bucket. Great beds and linens. Complimentary glass of wine in the evening. Hotel... More

The first thing I noticed was the way it smelled -- great! Spur of the moment trip; lucky that we'd stayed here years ago and it is still in business. Arrived after 10 PM without reservations and was graciously welcomed. Offered the choice of three rooms it became clear that quiet was more important to us than size of room... More

This is a lovely and very stylish hotel. It's charming, warm and cozy. I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was gracious and welcoming. The only complaint I would have is that my room was quiet small. With my luggage in the room, it was very tight to walk around. There were larger rooms that I peaked into while they... More

Half Moon Bay Inn is a nicely decorated hotel with comfortable rooms. Upon arrival we noticed a constant noise (vent fan) from the restaurant below and when we asked about it, we were offered to stay in another room. We decided to change to the room next door which has a nice small outdoor deck. Although the hotel had a... More

This is the sort of place you always dreamed of opening, if you only had the money and style. Dazzling decor and use of the old building space. Feels Tuscan. Great hosts. Quirky building. Fantastic linens. This is not on the beach, nor does it have an ocean view, but Half Moon Bay has plenty of coastline to look at... More
