This is our third visit to HMB. We have previously stayed at a junky B&B. It was a wonderful improvement. The beds are comfy, the decor is updated, the balcony and heated pool were great ways to end the day. The breakfast was pretty substantial and all the foods were fresh, not packaged. We joked that our only complaint was...

After a nice stay in Pismo Beach, felt this place was overrated and a bit over priced. It has the benefit of being next to a nice golf course. If that's your thing, then perfect location. Otherwise, save your money and go someplace else.

Our room on the second floor was great - larger than most hotel rooms in this price range, with a very private balcony overlooking part of the golf course. The room was spotless and the bed was so comfortable, I actually tried to find out the brand of the mattress! The breakfast was good and you can eat outside on...

While this place is not on the water it is very close. The rooms large and are comfortable, with wood fireplaces. They serve a continental breakfast which is very nice. There is a nice size heated swimming pool & hot tub, and a small gym. All the things you need for your weekend get away.

You seldomly had hotel rooms as silent as in the Half Moon Bay Lodge. We really slept well. The room has what you need. Staff is very helpful. The breakfast is much better than in typical motels but some more choice could be offered, particularly a whole-grain bread and something like a fruit salad would be reasonable additions. The outside...

Quiet and clean hotel with good breakfast. We also enjoyed the private patio area with big sliding doors, which I believe is in all rooms. Staff were also friendly. Ample parking as well. Would stay again.

I look forward to returning here. The rooms have balconies and overlook a golf course. Feel the sea breeze. Close to downtown HMB. The pool and hot tub are very attractive and pleasant to use. The staff very accommodating. The included breakfast was way above average. Overall feel was very European which I like, from the tile to the use...

In town for our family on Thanksgiving. The room was comfortable and clean. Since the motel was located a little ways from the main highway, it was quiet. The room has a real fireplace, and was supplied with a small bag of firelog material. The television had both analog and digital channels, but a mediocre selection of each. The analog...

This hotel is overpriced. I know Half Moon Bay has limited number of hotels in the area that's why the hotels charge so much but at least they should update the rooms and decor.
