Quick Stay-PerfectPosted Nov 5, 2015
I had business in the Bay Area so decided to enjoy the comfort and slower pace Half Moon Bay. EXCELLENT DECISION. I will return when I can stay longer. I did enjoy a great walk on the beach and a perfect view for breakfast!

Nice hotel close to Sam's chowder house, beach andPosted Oct 26, 2015
Pros: Right on the beach, close to the harbor and great restaurants.
Cons: Would love to go back & have a beach view room!
Location: Right next door to Sams chowder house, the beach, and the harbor which was awesome!
Comfortable room. Hotel staff were very nice. We liked that it had a kitchenette, but were disappointed that we had a view of highway 1 from our room instead of the beach for $300/night. I like to sleep with the balcony door cracked for fresh air, but heard the traffic instead :(

Room Could Be More ComfortablePosted Oct 2, 2015
Pros: Access to beach.
Cons: Furniture, shower size, and air conditioning.
Location: Location on the beach is best part. You can walk to restaurant next door. Other sites require a bicycle or auto.
The seating furniture was uncomfortable. The bed was okay, but had a soft mattress. Bathroom had a separate tub and shower. That means a small shower. In order to get cool weather into the room you have to leave window or door open with fan. That can be very uncomfortable for people in law enforcement. Next time, we will look at other options.

Wonderful beach front hotelPosted Sep 24, 2015
Pros: The room was very spacious. Easy access to the beach.
Cons: The hotel needs an update on design. Also the elevator was broken (had to drag luggage to the third floor) and the spa was also broken.
Location: Great restaurants within walking distance.
Great experience, great location right on the beach. The only down fall is that the fog horn for the boats in the harbor sounds every min. 24/7, it is a bit annoying. You do get use to it, but this is not the location for you if you are looking for peace and quite.

Better then the photosPosted Sep 23, 2015
Nice hotel, well maintained, great views over the bay. My ocean view room had a fireplace and also a kitchenette. Continental breakfast in lobby. Sam's restaurant next door for dinner! Good for long walks along the beach front.

We'll be backPosted Aug 27, 2015
Pros: View, room, location, bike path, spaciousness, fireplace, patio
Cons: It'd be nice to knock a few dollars off the price, but it's only slightly overpriced.
Location: Don't not eat at the Miramar restaurant. It's fantastic and very close to the hotel.
This is a great hotel. Very nice room, great view, nice bike/walk path right outside, nice sunken living room and suite feeling in the standard rooms, fireplace, etc. The main thing to know before coming here is that it is set up to be lived in for a while if you like. There is a stove, refrigerator, large microwave, dishes, silverware,etc. If I'd know that in advance I might have packed differently and planned on preparing a meal or two in the room. (On the other hand, there is at least one fantastic restaurant very close by that was worth going to for every meal, so I'm not complaining, just saying bringing your own food would work fine if you're so inclined.)

Super schönes Hotel in der Half Moon BayPosted Aug 25, 2015 on Hotels
Das Hotel ist wunderbar direkt am Wasser gelegen. Wir hatten ein sehr grosses Zimmer mit einem Kingsize und einem geräumigen Ausziehsofa. Die Einrichtung des gesamten Hotel ist sehr geschmackvoll. Toll ist der Pool und Whirlpool mit Blick aufs Meer.

Somewhat disappointingPosted Aug 12, 2015
Pros: The location
Cons: Cleaner carpets, upgraded bathrooms, in-house restaurant and bar, central air.
Location: Horse-back riding, light houses
When we first arrived it was late at night so we just had to settle in and go right to bed, but The room was stuffy and smelled of cat urine. I later learned there was no air conditioning in the hotel. Once we opened up the windows though, the air was fine. The following day I requested a Larger room, (pictures on the website are very deceiving). We had to wait one more day and then were finally moved to another room. This room was fine, as it was larger, located on a corner with two balconies. They called it the "Half-Moon-Bay suite". Another thing we learned very quickly is that there are no restaurants or bars within the hotel. Lickily, the neighboring property has a restaurant and bar. I checked out other hotels and this was the only one that sat right on the beach.
