Coastside Inn
Ranked #7 of 8 Hotels in Half Moon Bay
Reviewed January 25, 2014

We needed a hotel immediately. We just heard that the Mavericks Surf Comp was happening the next day, on Friday, and decided to spend night in Half Moon Bay so we could be at the compeition early. I found Coastside Inn for a very resonable, good price.We were so pleased with the choice. The room looked like it was just updated and had nice amenities. The whole space felt very clean. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was included in price. It wasn't just a bland and stale continental. We had a choice of boiled eggs, waffles, cereal, bagels/ toast, yogurt and fruit. The staff members were helpful and very nice. I highly recommend this Inn. We would stay again.

The room was very nice and complete with all of the amenities expected. Our check-in was efficent as was out check-out. Nothing outstanding about the morning breakfast but I always give extra points if there is a waffle maker - even if I didn't use it. You can walk to the beach but if you drive be prepared to pay for parking at the State beach. However, we went just before sunset, no time to walk, and they passed us in no charge.

My girlfriend and I came back to Half Moon Bay for a quick weekend trip and again we stayed at the Coastside Inn. It was our second time staying there and once again, we enjoyed the stay. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was exceptionally nice and helpful in all aspects of our stay - from phone booking to check-in, to even getting a extra pillow :)

The only downside is I still think it is a little pricey. But compared to the other Hotels/Motels in the area, it is a good deal.

We will stay there again on our next trip to Half Moon Bay :)

The staff was friendly and the rates much more reasonable than other hotels in the area. The room was everything you could expect from a hotel. Nothing too fancy. The free breakfast was great. After a long night of drinking, the staff really came through for me with fresh coffee and a bagel. I would stay here again for sure! There is also a lot of stuff with in walking distance from this place. driving in HMB on a busy weekend can be tedious.

Along our road trip up the California coast, my mom and I chose Half Moon Bay as one of our stopping destinations. The Coastside Inn had everything we needed for a one night stay. The staff gracefully welcomed us upon check-in, our room was incredibly clean and the bed was one of the comfiest of our other hotel visits. The location was near the shops and dining on Main Street as well as being located along Highway 1 which made it quite convenient for us! I would highly suggest the Coastside Inn for anyone looking to visit Half Moon Bay!

We wanted to visit the area for fallish activities(great pumpkin festival in Oct). We booked in the $ 100 range - the staff was very helpful.

Overall I enjoyed it - frankly I would stay here over San Mateo, and just drive down 92. Its a great - laid back beach town area. The breakfast was good - mix of usual toast and waffles.

I would recommend - its a good place to stay.

Room Tip: I prefer upstairs.

Very reasonably priced basic hotel. We were pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms. The staff were very courteous and helpful. The location is convenient to everything, town, beaches, and highway. While on a main road, we did not notice the noise. We would stay there again. Oh yes, breakfast is early; we are late risers so almost missed it. That said, the staff were nice and let us get some food, and we had a very nice breakfast at one of the tables outside.
