Parking lot lights shown through the window all night. Even through the (darkening shades). Terrible sleep. Use to have a garden but not now. No charm. On main street. Downtown. Wasted stay. Bad memory.

My wife and I checked in @ around 4pm, on a pre-paid reservation. No one there to greet us, but we find our keys behind the counter and locate our room. . Positives: Right on Main St. in Half Moon Bay, in the area filled with small shops.. The morning breakfast was attractive and in the early stages of being... More

Parts of the property are a bed and breakfast as advertised. Adjacent to it, "sold" as a B&B is what amounts to a motel. Not what we were going for. Would have been nice to have "clearer" descriptions on-line. We booked and paid in advance. After we got there, we discovered, because of light bookings, people who just showed up... More

Zaballa House is allegedly the oldest house in Half Moon Bay. We found the rooms very clean spacious, most if not all are accessed via stairs. The staff were always very friendly and helpful. The breakfast every morning superb, I have never seen so much fresh fruit outside of a supermarket. Plenty of restaurants in walking distance, and a great... More

Arrived late at night. Easy to find. Free parking. Friendly night check-in. Room was in further newer wing, but, it was huge! Spacious, clean bathroom. Widescreen. Delicious, fresh breakfast shared with other guests.

Much better for an overnight stay after a long trans Atlantic flight than a featureless Airport Hotel in our view. But wouldn't have wanted to stay longer than the one night that we did... The location is central in a funky little town, and the original building has character and quirkiness. However, many of the rooms would appear to be... More

Great little B&B, loads of character, spacious well equiped rooms with tv, settee, tea/coffee making facilities. Friendly helpful staff, we had run out of milk one night and they couldn't be more helpful in providing us with some more for the morning tea. Bedding changed midway through our 5 night stay which was a pleasant surprise. One of the best... More

The bed sagged in the middle, there was no hot water in the morning, the staff started loud banging and yelling at 6:00 AM, guests had parties next door at 12:00 PM, the source of heat was a fireplace, thin curtains mounted backwards, no mirror above sink, a dribble of water so forget about the "jacuzzi" tub and no mount...
