Great rooms with a view. Friendly and helpful receptionists. Marshmallow bed mmmmm. The Log fire was a bonus.
We had no car when we stayed there but could take the bus to Main Street and the beach for $2 return. Although we ended up walking the journey back via the charming white sandy beach. The restaurants around the hotel offered a variety of dishes, from Fresh fish to Moroccan tasties.
The only suggestion I would have would be for the breakfast and that would be to offer more cereals such as granola, fruit and yoghurt as there was too much sugary food such as muffins and pastries. I did like the fact that we could take breakfast back to our room.

I am a snob. Ritz, 4 Seasons, I fuss even with those high end chains. Jump step. This cute spot is great for 2 reasons: View, and proximity to Sam's (great seafood a block away). If you are a blue-haired moneyed lady, stay away. If you you have kids that misbehave, this place is family friendly loud. Yep, there's a foghorn. All night. Just close the doors. And after cocktails at Sam's -- this is not that big of nuisance. Happy staff, good pool, though micro exercise room. The perfect location on the beach makes this a place I come back to, instead of the Ritz. A bit dated -- but the view.. Wow! Get bayside room or go elsewhere.

Great little place to stay. Clean, comfy bed. Spacious suite with couch, fridge, coffee maker. Nice view of the surfers to the south. Cute little balcony. Friendly staff. Didn't have time for all the other things they offered though.

I was really impressed with the ocean view room. Love the fact we had a fireplace! We stayed on the 2nd floor. After seeing that they have a small 4 ft deep pool, small kitchette, sofa bed couch, and dogs can stay there, we're planning on coming back with the family next year.

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and made up my own personal hot rock massage station with a view of the beautiful beach. It went perfect and we both wished we could stay longer. Room was great, bed comfortable and in room fridge and electric stove was a bonus. Only thing I would have liked to see was maybe a better choice of food for the free breakfast. Lots of sugar carbs and fruit but no real proteins. Yogurt or some basic cereal would be nice but all and all I would defiantly come back. Thanks beach house!

Enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean along with catching some whale watching right off your balcony if you take the time and watch for them, we actually seen a Calf with it's mother on our last visit, along with taking in the beautiful sunsets and awesome accommodations. The staff is Great and very helpful, the rooms are clean and have fireplaces, DVD players with Radios, along with kitchenettes and small refrigerators. They have a wine reception every evening along with a pool and hot tub, also Sam's Chowder house is within walking distance for wonderful ocean-side dining and a night of great times to remember. We've been here 3 different times, and make sure you to go into the town of Half Moon bay and enjoy some great dining and take a cab if you really want to have a Great time without the worry of driving. I hope you get to enjoy this with someone special, because it will be a Great time and an experience to remember for a lifetime.

Room Tip: Rooms on the third level are the Best.
