For my birthday this past March, I searched for hotels in Half Moon Bay and came across the Beach House. The hotel is located in the northern part of Half Moon Bay, away from the downtown area and some of the main beaches in the area. I picked this hotel partly for it's location, right next to a wonderful beach... More

This was our first time visiting Half Moon Bay. I booked a Penthouse Junior Suite based on the reviews I read on tripadvisor. The Beach House has a relaxed casual atmosphere. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly staff in a cozy lobby with a fire burning in the fireplace. In the morning there is a nice continental breakfast... More

We arrived at The Beach house for the last night of our Californian trip and we were not disappointed! Our room (Penthouse Junior Suite) was wonderful and the view from our balcony spectacular. We opened a bottle of wine, sat on our balcony, enjoyed the sun and watched the world go by. It was the perfect end to a perfect... More

We stayed at the Beach House since the Ritz Carleton was sold out. We found the Beach House to be a lovely hotel with a wonderful location for a reasonable price. We stayed in a top floor suite for less than half the price of a non-view room at the Ritz! Our room overlooked the ocean and we feel asleep... More

On our way from San Francisco to Half moon bay, we found this hotel right on the beach. Spacious room, king-size bed, nice little desk for email checking and a real fireplace. Compared to many other hotels in san francisco, the night rate also covered a continental breakfast, which is quite nice. I would definitely want to come back!

We stayed one night Oct/2013 and paid well over three hundred dollars for a partial obstructed ocean view room. We actually had a view of Sam's Chowder House and the loud highway. It was impossible to keep the windows or sliding doors open due to the noise and the room was very hot and stuffy because there was no A/C.... More

My family and I stayed for two nights. Based on previous reviews we opted to spend more and get the third floor penthouse jr. suite, full ocean view. I was confused because our balcony wasn't directly over the bay. It was a corner room so it was bigger inside, but I had been imagining a room where I could see... More
