My wife and I loved our stay at Beach House. The view was incredible, staff was friendly, even letting us check in 3 hours early. The beach access was very convenient. We will stay here everytime we come to Half Moon Bay.

Before making our reservation here to celebrate our anniversary, I read most of the reviews, looked at the pictures and finally called the hotel to ask questions regarding their spa/massage service. I'm glad I did since knowing most of the ins and outs made our stay very pleasant. I knew the type of room we would get and about the... More

My family really enjoyed a relaxing three days at the Beach House at HMB. Second floor with a king bed and lower seating area with a pull out queen for my daughters. The room had a small balcony and even a fireplace. Lots of stuff to do within walking distance for a few days. While some have mentioned the foghorn... More

Last year to celebrate our anniversary we stayed in a first floor room and fireplace smoke kept backing up into our room. We ended driving home at midnight with our 50% off certificate for our next stay. Friday we spent a lovely night until I wanted to take a bath without my 4 kids hounding me. Well, the cold water...

Dear 668Jill, Thank you for your comments. I'm a former 668 myself; and for going from one coast to another, I can attest HMB is very reminiscent of the MTK. Very quiet, quaint & costal.
