Nicely located by the beach with great ocean views

Posted Apr 15, 2015
Pros: Location, location, location.
Cons: See comments above.
Location: Many good shops and restaurants close by.
Overall, this is a great place to stay if you're into the beach and ocean activities. Great hiking areas are close by. Also, a prime location for surfing in front of your room. Some improvements I would recommend are: better airflow and ventilation, less or no use of bleach - I can smell chlorine bleach from bed sheets and pillow cases which made my eyes burn at times. Video online rents are expensive.

Pros: Ground floor Patio facing the water. Fridge, stove top microwave can make for convenient meal.
Cons: Ground floor noise - if near elevator, if close to center - noisy clanging when carts of plates and silverware and breakfast are set up before 7.
Location: Half Moon Bay Kayak Co. (kayak and SUP). Always go to 3-Zero Cafe at the airport for breakfast. Just a few minutes north.
Usually stay at The Oceano. Oceano has a more plush feeling inside and in rooms, view facing the water and boats in the marina. right next to Half Moon Bay Brewery. So chose to try a different place. The Beach House Hotel has a nicer view and right next Sam's Chowder House. Can watch surfers from patio or deck. Each hotel offers a little different something.

A fantastic spot right on the ocean's edge.

Posted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: Pretty much everything!
Cons: A full interior remodel in the few years would be well timed.
Location: Surfing, hiking, bicycling, walks on the beach, many good restaurants nearby!
We had an ocean view room, and truly the view couldn't be better! The staff is excellent, the beds are comfortable, and welcome amenities abound! The spa and pool were wonderful. The room had everything we needed, but it seems that it's been a while since the room's had a remodel. A little chipped paint, and a wobbely fridge are no real inconvenience, and our two day stay was absolutely wonderful! I also think the room rates are very worth the pleasure of staying here, I will be back again!

A Spring Break in Half Moon Bay

Posted Mar 11, 2015
Pros: Nice room, living space, kitchen, comfortable bed, porch with full ocean view. Quiet and private. Staff was hospitable. Good continental breakfast.
Location: On the beach a few miles from downtown (shopping) in Half Moon Bay. Beach access. Ocean view. Walk to harbor, or drive to varied places to eat.
My husband and I took a few days break in March in Half Moon Bay. It was sunny and warm and the beaches were crowded with bathers and surfers when we arrived at the upscale Beach House on Sunday afternoon. But the weather turned more seasonal so we never got to sun by the heated pool and hot tub. A fellow guest insisted they were great even when it was 50 and cloudy. We were more interested in an evening fire in our cozy room. We enjoyed walking on the beaches, and sitting on our little porch with a full ocean view. We also enjoyed the continental breakfast of fruit and rolls, in the lobby ( but we could have taken the tray back to our room). The comfortable bed was separate from the kitchen & living space. The small scale "resort" was attractive, clean and comfortable. The staff offered recommendations for meals. We ate the catch of the day with locals at Joanne, enjoyed a happy hour at the Half Moon Bay Brewery, had great seafood at Sams, and a good lunch at Chez Che after shopping in the boutiques of Half Moon Bay. We also drove down the scenic coast from Mantara Lighthouse to Pigeon Point. We sighted more than 50 pelicans, some seals and possibly a whale. We may go back to see whales migrate in January, the fields of flowers in the late spring, or pumpkins in the fall.

Half Moon Bay Charmer

Relaxing a few nights with my husband, had to see the water! This place was perfect, the room had a large bathroom, a separate seating area, refrigerator, stove top, kitchen supplies - the works! Quick access to the beach, wonderful walking path along the waters edge.

Great water views, spacious rooms

Posted Feb 18, 2015 on Hotels.com
This is a newer hotel with enormous suites for rooms, which include kitchenettes and fireplaces. Although we thought it was a bit pricey, the location is great. We had a water view from our deck and living room area (although US Highway 1 is on the other side, making it a bit noisy if you open your windows). We were very disappointed in the Continental breakfast (cold tea water, tedious bread selection, very little fruit, no cereal). For the price, this should really be upgraded.

Fantastic room with an awesome view of the ocean.

Posted Feb 4, 2015
Pros: Location and professional courteous staff.
Cons: We were not sure what the noise was that sounded every 15 seconds or so. Would have been better if not so frequent.
Location: Walking distance to the Chowder House. They served a wonderful dinner.
Excellent stay for our Anniversary. Splendid sunrise and sunsets.

Ultimate Relaxing Holiday

Posted Jan 28, 2015
We arrived early but were still given an excellent room. The room had everything we needed and more. The view was beautiful. We loved the private patio and sunken sitting room. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The hot tub was clean and large. A wonderful restaurant, Sam's Chowder House, was right next door. We loved the crab stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon. We did not want to leave. One of the most relaxing trips ever.
