This was one of the unexpected surprises of our US trip. Lovely location, incredible sunsets. The suite was spacious and lovely. Enjoyed the fire and relaxing in this beautiful spot. Would definitely comeback on our next trip.

It as expected

Posted Dec 28, 2016
The overall cleanliness of the hotel was great, with a slight exceptions of the bath mat for the tub (moldy). Our room was ready when we arrived. We had spent extra for the Penthouse Oceanview room. Upon check in we were notified we couldn't use the fireplace. Granted it's a county enforcement as a no burn day, however we weren't notified and this was a feature that helped make our decision to stay here. The room itself did face the water, but ocean view is a term I would use losely on this. You face the bay with a slight view of the ocean to the left. Within the bay there is no waves, just few boats and calm water. In my opinion ocean view would be better were you can see and hear the waves. Also, there is a light house at the end of the bay, which approximately every 30-40seconds sounds out a loud beep, like an old school phone sound. Again this is out of the control of the hotel, however I wish we would have known about it. Even with the windows shut you could hear it all day/night. My biggest complaint was the bed. Worst bed I have slept in especially for the price of the room. It was like having a 15yr old mattress that was completely broken in the middle. The hotel was booked solid so there wasn't an option to change rooms, especially being we didn't go to bed till midnight. We addressed this in the morning with the front desk, at which point we were told all their beds were recently replaced to new mattresses. All this said I would not recommend staying here.

Beautiful hotel

Posted Dec 14, 2016
We stayed the the partial ocean view suite and you could still see the ocean from the bed. It was gorgeous. The room was confortable and clean. You could walk straight down to the beach from the hotel. Front desk was super friendly.

Beautiful beach front resort

Posted Sep 24, 2016
First time there, always wanted to go to Half Moon Bay. The resort is right on the beach, and you can smell the clams and breath in the fresh crisp air. The temperature in the evening was perfect! The room is so comfortable you can even take a nap right on your private balcony. Continental breakfast included, with free parking! Next to a clam house that serves a delicious lobster bake umm.

The hotel was nice being close to the beach.

Posted Sep 19, 2016
Pros: The location was not far away
Cons: Free breakfast would be nice.
Location: Went to try the clam chowder at Sam's. Great.
The tide pools were great to stroll around. The location to the ocean and beach was great. Lots to see around the beach area and the town is close by.

No air conditioning, dirty rooms, old and dirty

Posted Sep 18, 2016
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Tear down, start over, install air conditioning.
Had to wait over an hour in the hot, muggy, lobby for a room at 3pm in the afternoon. Finally got into a hot, muggy, room after 4pm. The room didn't feel clean. The bed sheets didn't seem new. No restaurant in hotel. No mini-store available for supplies or drinks or snacks. Took and hour to get a boarding pass printed on hotel computer/printer. Wasn't functioning properly. Absolutely disgusting to stay there overall. Very disappointed. Nasty.
