Not cheap for a place where you can't see the ocean, but I did find the room to be clean and comfortable. No AC but we didn't need it, (tip: get a room upstairs so you can open the slider for fresh air and not be concerned with security). The room we stayed in had a fireplace which you can... More

We stayed in a handicapped accessible room on the first floor because that is what was available. Our first night we had a family with heavy footed children running above us until late at night/early in the morning. There is not a lot of sound insulation between floors! The bed was squishy soft; not supportive. The location is off the... More

I'm usually suspect of very negative reviews - some people just aren't going to be happy no matter what. But if i can help you avoid staying at this property, I will have done you a favor. This is an older property which is fine, but at a rate exceeding $300 US, this place is a dump! All entries are... More

My boyfriend and I decided to spend the night here during our summer vacation. We got a great dinner/hotel package, which made it a better deal for us. The grounds are very nice, and the room was clean and comfortable. We loved sitting out on the deck overlooking the golf course. It was just so tranquil and beautiful! The breakfast... More

My husband travels to Half Moon Bay once or twice a year. Anytime I am able, I love to take along, to be with him, of course. However, the Half Moon Bay Lodge is an amazing place to just relax. The rooms are large and clean. (And I've been in many different ones) The grounds are beautiful. The pool area... More

My husband and I recently spent two nights at Half Moon Bay Lodge and enjoyed our stay. The grounds are impecabbly maintained, they have a very nice pool and hot tub and the breakfast is a step above the usual cereal and pastries that you so often get. Breakfast also included waffles, muffins, yogurt, fruit and oatmeal. The location was... More

It's less money than the Ritz, and it is a nice hotel. $300/night is steep for what they offer. But there's not much choice in this small coastal beach town, so I guess they charge as much as demand/supply dictate. The fire place in the room was neat.

This was our first night stop after flying into San Francisco and prior to starting our trip down the Pacific coast highway. Absolutely perfect with large clean rooms free parking, swimming pool and breakfast. We were only there for one night but could have stayed longer. Very friendly.

If you are in Half Moon Bay there is likely a good reason. Golf and a wedding? Ocean vistas? Enormous pumpkins? Trailer Parks? If you are going high end there is the Ritz (which is pretty amazing and priced so) and lower end doesn't really get very low on price. This is why the moderately priced Half Moon Bay Lodge... More
