Stayed at HMBL last weekend and was very pleased with cleanliness, amenities, grounds and service. My only complaint was we got the absolute worst location right behind the office on the first floor. Ask for a second floor room so you don't hear the people above you walk around as the floors squeak terribly. Maids carts started at 7 am... More

Just a straightforward hotel/motel. Spacey, clean and simple. Beds are great and the nights are quiet. There is plenty of parking space, breakfast has the normal choice, but everything was fresh and tasty.

This is a very nice dog friendly hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast is a little sparse if you are gluten free. The pool is small but clean. Close to the Ritz Carlton. Well placed and priced to explore the area.

We stayed here as part of an anniversary trip and it was perfect. Housekeeping staff and front desk were very helpful. It's a clean, well-manicured place located near a first-class golf course that I used twice. Halfway between Monterey and San Francisco, it offers lots of options for day trips, and the town is also nice.

This hotel is basic but very nice, clean and a good value. We stayed here for a wedding and were very pleased with our balcony and view on the golf course, big covered outdoor hot tub and swimming pool. While we only had some cereal, an orange and coffee, we glanced over the breakfast that is included and offers a... More

Our room was very nice, vaulted ceilings and a real fireplace with wood to burn.The balcony overlooked the swimming pool that the girls loved and had a nice hot tub area with another gas fireplace burning plus the breakfast buffet was quite adequate. Our bathroom was little dated with blue tile but was very clean and large.

We recently took grandkids and dogs down to Half Moon Bay and had a pleasant stay here at the lodge.

Its likely the $200+ room rate I paid was due to unusual demand. However, were it not for that economic fact it is hard to justify this much money for such a modest room and facility. The room, while clean, was not notable. The bath, while clean was notably dated and seemed to have been "updated" in a decidedly sloppy... More

We loved the location, right on a golf course. The room was spacious and comfortable. The grounds were well kept and very dog friendly. The staff were friendly and very nice. Breakfast was par.
