“A wonderful serene getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2011

We were delighted with our brief stay ( 2 nights) at the Beach House in Half Moon Bay.
The room was perfect for us and reminded us of a beach house. The hot tub was just the right temp. Continental Breakfast suited our needs.

What can I say? It was our first anniversary, and we were looking for a nice place near the water to get away and enjoy a romantic time together.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room had a nice patio with an amazing view of the bay and harbor. The Jacuzzi also has a wonderful view of the bay.

Having the kitchenette in the room allowed us to have a couple of small private meals in the room (and re-warm leftovers from the local restaurants). Speaking of the restaurants, there are several very good ones within walking distance.

The room was quiet. We could easily enjoy the sounds of the water and harbor with the windows open, or from the patio.

My wife enjoyed getting a massage in their spa to relax her and help her transition into the getaway when we got there, which was a nice touch.

We will definatly be returning.

I use TripAdvisor to try to get the honest idea of these places, but what I really missed on my research of this hotel was the impact of no air conditioning. We had a beautiful room on the Northwest side (Partial ocean view), but with the full-on setting sun our room was stifling when we arrived - OK, open the slider and window, and even block open the door to vent the place. No problem till bed time, when you realize that your room is no more than a couple hundred feet from Hwy. 1 - and then you have a choice to count the trucks and motorcycles OR cut off the ventilation. Lousy choice for this kind of money. Big tell was the earplug sets provided in the bathroom.
Well run, clean and nice place on a great beach, but GET OCEAN FRONT!

Room Tip: Consider Ocean Front only

The happy hour is fun, and I'd recommend planning to cook a meal or two. They have dishes but bring your own pans. Great room set-up and nice employees.

Room Tip: Splurge for the view!

We went down a day early to stay and were awoken at 5 am telling us to evacuate because of the tsunami warning. Which was natures fault my problem was they didnt even try to cut the rate considering we did not even stay 10 hours. When i called a few days later after someone at the front desk said he would see what he could do , i was told the bill will stand and i needed to get over it. Lets just say we lost out on a bit of money because of this and i would NOT stay there again now. Its called customer service, which means you want customers to come back lets treat them better and not be sooo rude!!!!!!!! Again my family and I will not be staying there again , and i will be telling my friends not to as well! Maybe next time they will not be so rude and dismissive

Beach-House_10, Front Office Manager at Beach House at Half Moon Bay, responded to this review, March 16, 2011
The 8.9 earthquake in Japan and resulting Tsunami warning for the West Coast required the evacuation of all guests and hotel staff. To ensure the safety of all persons, law enforcement advised that everyone west of Highway One to temporarily move to higher ground between the hours of 8am and 10am. Guests were called starting at 6am and advised of the impending surge of water that could impact the area. Most guests were unaware of the earthquake and thanked us for the information. By 7am,everyonel had complied with the mandatory evacuation in an orderly manner. After it was deemed safe to return to the hotel, guests resumed their stay, enjoying. Continental breakfast served well into the afternoon. Late check outs were granted to make amends for the inconvenience.
