The Beach House at Half Moon is an absolute gem. We stayed for one night. The staff was wonderful and room was clean. Bed was comfortable and sheets smelled good. The bathroom was clean and fresh. The bathroom was older. The beach view from the room was relaxing and quaint. Easy walk to the beach and local restaurant. Slept with window and slider open. Wonderful nights sleep. The only draw back was the fog horn but it was in the faint distance. I would stay again. Pool and hot tub clean. Wonderful place.

Room Tip: Pent house was perfect for family of 4.

Cbrenn1085,

Thank you for your post on Tripadvisor. As you had pointed out in your review, our housekeeping and grounds staff work incredibly hard to maintain our hotel. They truly are the secret to our success and thank you for acknowledging them. We hope to see you again on your next west coast trip.

Best regards,

We had non-stop problems with the key card entry of our room. Maid staff had to let us in 3 out of the 4 times we left the room. They were very helpful. The desk staff on the other hand was very rude about it and would not listen to out problem. They assumed it was because the door was "too heavy" and we needed to pull first... But that heavy door has nothing to do with the reader not reading our key card. They clearly could have cared less that we were inconvenienced.
The room was very over priced. Nothing special for paying over $350 a night.
The breakfast was fresh, however for the price of the room, I expected much more.

Dmaxctgirl,

Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor. I do sincerely apologize the room door was not working to our standards. I can fully understand just how frustrating that can be. I would like to report that we have addressed and remedied. I do hope to welcome you again one day.

Cute beach hotel, smaller than most chains. Couldn't find many hotels on this side of San Fran near the outer beach. Very clean and quaint. Breakfast offering were only fruits & pastries, no gluten free options. Nice pool and hot tub area. Close walk to beach. Only drawback was an alarm noise from a boat out in the marina the whole time we were there but that isn't a fault of the hotel. In walking distance to Sams chowder house.

Dear Laurie M,

Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor. We are truly fortunate to have the location we do. No other area hotel offers the views and proximity to the ocean. We look forward to seeing you on your next Northern California trip.

Stayed four nights, quiet, comfortable, good rooms although starting to look slightly shabby. Staff friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast in the lobby. Really good location on the beach. Good place to relax and use the surrounding area. Weather can sometimes misty but cool enough to be active.

Anne B,

Thank you for your post on Tripadvisor. The weather in Half Moon Bay is great year round for waling or biking on the Coastal Trail, kayaking or surfing in the bay, or hiking in the Red Woods. Whatever your pleasure, you'll be able to do it here.

Best regards,

This is my second time visiting this hotel in the last couple years. We booked the penthouse room and ended up on the third floor. The views are breathtaking!!! This is one of the best hotels on the coast. Checkout time is not until noon. That is nice because you can have plenty of time in the morning to have a cup of coffee while enjoying the relaxing views. I love that there is a paved trail close by to get to access beaches and restaurants easily by either biking or on foot. I can't wait to be back. Hopefully sooner than later!!

Melissa M,

Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor. It is very hard to to be able to relax by the coast. You almost have to work at it; but we offer a comfortable atmosphere where you can just be you. We wouldn't have it any other way. We look forward to your next stay.
