The Beach House is exactly what you want if you are looking to spend a day or two detached from the world. Although situated off of a busy road, once you pull in, the back rooms of the hotel face the bay and the only thing you hear are the seagulls and fog horn. We opted for the beachfront suite... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

My husband and I spent two lovely days/nights at the Beach House as we traveled through California and Arizona. The room was beautiful--we were upgraded to an ocean-front suite upon arrival, and the view was exceptional. We actually chose to spend more time in our room than anticipated so that we could enjoy the location. The fireplace was a surprise... More

Spent one night there in September and got two 80 degree days which is rare in Half Moon Bay. The hotel is a little pricey but very high quality for the HMB area and lots of amenities that make the place really special. Split level room with an amazing view and a short walk to the beach and dining. The... More

Stayed there for 2 nights. A nice cozy hotel with a beachfront. The room is well laid out with all the amenities. While the balcony is nice, it doesn't accord privacy. The fog horn is the one that is not expected, it goes on through the night and if you plan to leave your windows open to enjoy the breeze... More

My 3 night stay here was amazing! The rooms are beautiful and the balconies are perfect for the sunset. The grounds are beautiful and walking distance to restaurants. The staff was friendly and welcoming, and I loved the sound of the foghorn in the wind! Thanks for an amazing start to our trip down the PCH.

The Beach House has a great waterfront location and some good amenities, but they're a bit short of where they should be for a hotel that charges such high rates. A couple examples: the Internet service was intermittent....reminded me of wifi service 10 years ago....you had to be in certain areas for it to work. Also, there is no air... More

It's a high end place but worth it to me. Took my in-laws (in their 80's) for an ocean view vacation getaway, was perfect. The small town was nice to walk through. There is a fog horn, we didn't find it a problem, it does go off 24/7. Sam's Chowder House next door was so good, 5 stars, but the... More

We stayed here for a weekend mini vacation and enjoyed it immensely. The 3rd floor suite on the south end had great views of the ocean and surfers. The fireplace was easy to use and enjoy thanks to the bundles of firewood in jute bags. Breakfast was delicious fresh fruit, bagels and pastries. Lunch and dinner were a short walk... More

Rooms face the bay. We loved the patio where we ate lunch. Nice walking trail that you reach through stairs at the end of the parking lot. Small, clean room with silverware, plates, coffee-maker, and fixings. Stove top and microwave. Fire place with wood, if you need it. Breakfast included was on the ordinary side of mediocre with hard fruit--... More
