We stayed in a 3rd floor suite overlooking the harbour and bay. One day we saw a humpback whale feeding - that was great. Unfortunately, the harbour seemed dirty and had 'no bathing due to bacteria' signs up. This was very disappointing, however our son enjoyed himself in the pool. The room was very comfortable but we felt that as... More

We found the location worked well if you are looking for something a bit more relaxed than being in central San Fransisco but only wanting a 30/40 mins drive into the central city. We found the drive easy to do and it was nice getting out of the city after a busy day. We stayed in the weekdays and we... More

My family stayed for a night, after flying into SFO. We wanted to hit the beach and visit Alcatraz before our trip to Tahoe. Only ~30 minutes south of SFO. Beautiful hotel rooms right on the beach. Our room had a fridge, small stove, and microwave. It was nicely appointed, with a balcony. The hotel offers free wine & cheese... More

We only stayed one night, but had a great time. Our room was large, with a separate living space, fireplace & had a mini kitchen (a nice surprise) with cooktop, microwave, fridge & full plates, glasses, utensils. The bathroom was overly large & nice as well. We had a small patio which was great to relax in the morning. The... More

We went for one night and it was beautiful.. We had a 3rd floor oceanfront room. There were 4 whales in the bay for several days and we could see them from our balcony, soo much fun! The room was very clean, and we didn't hear anyone next to us. We did hear kids running up and down the hallway... More

We chose this hotel (making reservations for a partial bay view suite only a couple days in advance) due to its half hour proximity to SFO and not wanting to spend our final vacation night at the airport. Half Moon Bay is a lovely area and this hotel is situated on a beautiful part of the bay. We were greeted... More

This is the perfect beach getaway for anyone in the Bay Area or traveling the coast. Very friendly staff and comfortable clean rooms done in modern beach. Walk the beach and jetty or dine at Sam's Chowder house just steps away. I suggest room 210. It is the perfect location.

We were quite happy with our suite. It was immaculate and surprisingly quiet. The path to the beach is just past the hotel's outdoor jacuzzi, so not far from our room. Sam's Chowder House is right next door. We were able to whale watch from our patio, but did walk down to the beach to take photos of the whales... More

The Beach House Inn has unsurpassable views of Half Moon Bay from the ocean-side King suites. We enjoyed watching the Gray whales in the bay each morning. It was very comfortable and the amenities were wonderful, including a wood-burning fireplace that was stocked for the cool nights. The only drawback was that the balcony was quite small and there were... More
