We chose this hotel as part of the Pacifica chain, where we have always had good rooms. HMB Lodge was no exception. Our room was huge, with a king-size bed and a balcony overlooking the golf course. Located south of HMB on Route 1, the hotel is quiet and the rooms are clean. The only negative is that the included...

The hotel is very close to the Ritz Carlton, where we were attending a wedding. We stayed for 2 nights. Pretty exterior, we were on the ground floor with no view. Probably block wedding parties are given the lower end rooms as they are given at a reduced rate. The room was very clean which was great but the sound...

We enjoyed the pool, hottub and outdoor fireplace. The rooms were comfortable and breakfast was good. We especially liked the location because it was close to Pescadero and the beaches. I did not think that the cost was equivalent to the overall quality of the hotel. It was a bit costly.

The HMB Lodge recently accomodated our entire family for our wedding weekend! We had an 11th hour change in venue and location and this property accomodated us in less than five weeks during thier busiest season. Not only did they assemble an ADA compatible room for my Mom, they also provided my brother a private conference room (no charge!) for...

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Ritz. The welcoming pumpkin display, the friendly staff, the clean quiet room overlooking a garden, the varied breakfast menu --- all made for a perfect stay. It is obvious that great care is taken to make guests happy here.

Our stay here was perfect for exploring the coast along Half Moon Bay. The rooms are decorated to a very high standard and the cleanliness is second to none. Breakfast is included and has ample choice to get your day off to a good start. Would recommend without hesitation.

We recently shared a two-queen bed room with our 2 dogs. It was a nice size and had a patio which went out onto a grassy area with plenty of room to walk our two dogs. A golf course was beyond the fence, so very nice view from our room. The hotel is in a nice area. It was hot...

We selected this Lodge because we were babysitting our 8 week old grandson while our children attended a wedding. We wanted a CLEAN lodge in a good location with a bit of charm.
