Beautiful quaint hotel.

Posted Apr 24, 2015
The room and ambiance were superb. The vegetarian Eggs Benedict by Amanda...delicious! The only problem was the plumbing...had to run the water in the shower for 15 to 20 min. Just to talke a barely warm shower. This seems like a waste of a very precious commodity in the state of CA...water. Otherwise our stay was perfect!

Peaceful garden oasis

Posted Mar 31, 2015
Pros: Beautiful gardens, peaceful deck overlooking gardens, nice jacuzzi, clean and comfortable room. Excellent hotel staff... very friendly and helpful.
Cons: Room too warm (no A/C) and very bright in the morning. Annoying noise from frequent banging of gate to parking lot.
Location: Off a busy road so somewhat noisy... didn't try to walk from there, but convenient to drive to beach, restaurants, etc.
Nice garden hotel off a fairly busy street. Good central location for exploring the coast without being right by the Boardwalk. Probably better for singles or couples than for families. Good happy hour wine and munchies, and good buffet breakfast. Excellent, friendly staff made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Nice for a private restful getaway, although road noise was sometimes annoying.

A perfect romantic place

Posted Feb 10, 2015
It is one of the best romantic places I've ever been to! Everything is so nice and beautiful! I liked the garden so much! And the room was really warm though it was not so warm outside. We stayed in the on the first level, and I'm pretty sure that on the second level it would be even better. Also the hotel is located in a quite street, though it is not far from the center! Especially I liked the duck in the bathroom :)

Babbling Brook Inn is the best

Posted Jan 27, 2015 on Hotels.com
This place is great! The pictures on the website don't do this place justice. We absolutely loved the atmosphere of the Babbling Brook - it's got a unique, almost 'fairy-tale cottage' type of vibe, and it really is built around an actual stream - very cool! But the service here was exceptional. We encountered two front-desk employees during our stay, and both were great and went out of their way to provide outstanding service. We will definitely stay here again!

Loved our stay

Posted Jan 24, 2015 on Hotels.com
It was really a nice place. They let us check in early and the people that worked there were awesome especially Amanda. She offered directions around Half Moon Bay and gave suggestions for dinner. They offered a very nice continental breakfast and we were very happy with this choice.

Nice place to stay

Posted Jan 16, 2015 on Hotels.com
A nice place to stay. We stayed in the original building, which is older, but nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We asked and were given a tour of some of the other rooms and told a little bit about the history of the property. I'd stay here again.

What a Gem!

The Babbling Brook Inn offers a warm, personal service to guests. I was in town for business but I hope to return to the Inn for pleasure. Sam and staff were exceptionally gracious, accommodating and personable. Lovely place!
