Nice hotel close to the beach

Posted Jul 1, 2017
The hotel room was very nice and very spacious. Loved the extra vanity for getting ready. Since we were there for a wedding in the area. Staff was very friendly.

Close to the beach and highway.

Posted Jun 25, 2017
Pros: Access to the bay.
Cons: Add air-conditioning.
Location: Long walks on the beach.
Overall nice hotel. However, it is on Highway 1 and since there is not air conditioning, you will likely sleep with the patio door at least partly open so you can enjoy the sounds of zooming cars & trucks.

Nice location that is right on the edge of the harbor and close to several restaurants.

Very nice hotel overlooking the ocean

Posted May 17, 2017
Very nice hotel, overlooking the ocean. Your view is of an enclosed harbor and jetty, with the wild open ocean slightly to the left of the hotel. There's a walking/running pathway between most hotel rooms and the beach, but it's way below your room so you don't have people waking right in front of you. The front entrance of the hotel sits right on highway 1, so you may want to double check if your room is situated on the highway 1 side of either end of the hotel because I believe those rooms are noisy. But again, many more of their rooms face the ocean. On the left side of the hotel is a pool and jacuzzi area which is very nice, along with outdoor seating. The side fence beyond the pool does look out on a trailer park, but it's the kind where very large high end mobile vehicles hook up. It's small and we've only seen very nice older people living there. It seems to be a relaxed community and you'll only see those vehicles in the parking lot at the end of the pool, and from several rooms that look over those vehicles. But the expansive ocean is the overall view you'll enjoy. But because of this, we tend to want rooms that only face the ocean harbor for less noise and peace. The rooms are well appointed, most with fireplaces, views, separated bath and shower, 2 bathroom sinks, fridge, microwave and kitchen plates and utensils. There's a few resteraunts within walking distance with views so it's very convenient. We love this Halfmoon Bay hotel we think it's the best in the area!

Loved our one night stay!

Posted Apr 22, 2017
Pros: Loved it, beautiful room with an ocean view.
Cons: I strongly suggest that the hotel provide coffee mugs instead of cups and two cups of coffee per guest, instead of one.
Location: Best location ever for taking long walks at the Beach and dining at Sam's next door.
We drive by this hotel every weekend and always wanted to stay, however, we thought for sure that there would be a two-night stay requirement, especially a weekend. That turned out to be a misconception! We were thrilled to be able to book a room for one night.

Nice view of Half Moon Bay harbor

Posted Apr 19, 2017 on Orbitz
Pros: Friendly staff, very nice accomodations.
Cons: Tried to check in at 2pm on a Sunday afternoon, staff, not real friendly, said room was being cleaned and they would call me when ready. I confirmed
Location: Toured Half Moon Bay distillery was great, had dinner at Barbara's, excellent, and walked on beaches in area.
Very nice and great view of harbor. This was our 30th anniversary and this hotel and staff made this more special.
