This is the first time I feel that ratings here and on other sites have completely steered me wrong. This place is in desperate need of some renovation. The room we had smelled horribly musty/moldy, there were no working outlets (chargers all fall out), the fan was broken, the

First off this place is on the south end of Half Moon Bay away from the active hub, which is good as you have a more tranquil setting. It's still only 5 minutes from the town center, so not like you are removed. It is also offset a bit from the main road and so again, more

We stayed here for a week while attending a workshop in the area. Although it is an older property, it is very well kept. The room was spacious, and the bed was super comfortable. There was a refrigerator in our room. Upon request, a microwave was brought up to our room.

Very clean older hotel but kept up well. Beds are comfortable. A little pricey but acceptable. Location is south of town so you are not caught up with traffic. Double queen room has lots of space. Bathrooms show their age.

We have stayed at the Half Moon Bay Lodge for about 20 years and find it comfortable, clean and convenient. HMB has a good selection of restaurants and outdoor attractions, especially the shoreline parks. The hotel is mid range and about 30 years old. It is pre-ADA, so not all of the rooms are accessible. You could spend a lot more for an upscale hotel, but the Half Moon Bay Lodge provides a good cost-benefit value. Note: If you stay on the second floor there isn't an elevator, so you may want to consider a first floor room.

Excellent customer service; I suspect if you ask they would provide.

As it is right on Highway 1, I don't think walking would be great. The beach is not far but I would drive or take a bike. Check out the distance on Google Maps. There are a number of lovely beaches around Half Moon Bay.

"If you are afraid of dogs, get an upstairs room. I opened my sliding door and another guest's dog walked into my room. OK with me."
"Some rooms in the back face the golf course."
"Ground floor."
"If you are sensitive to noise, be sure to book an upstairs room. Also, bring earplugs!"
"I recommend a lower level room facing the lawn if you have kids"
