We love the setting of this hotel, and we have stayed here several times while visiting Stanford University. On this occasion we stayed in room 114, which shows sign of decline and disrepair. The TV in the living room did not work, and the staff was unable to correct the problem. Furnishings show wear and tear. The mattress needs to...

My girl and I were completely thrilled with our first floor room at the Beach House. Everything, from the hotel staff to the separate bath and shower and amazing linens was just perfect. This is now our new hotel in Half Moon Bay.

The rooms facing the sea have great views and the walking trail below is handy. We had beautiful weather so sitting on the balcony and on the large patio was a plus. And the beds were the best. Even the sofa sleeper was really comfy. I will definitely be back. California dreamin' at its best!

We have a lovely 3rd floor room over looking the water. We can open the patio doors and let the sounds of the waves and the sea air fill the room. There are 2 chairs to sit in on the patio to wit and watch the sun rise or set. Quite lovely. There is a fire place and these gunnysacks...

Love the easy beach access, nice views (if your room is on the correct side), very large, comfortable rooms, and in particular excellent beds. They were having computer problems when we arrived so check-in had some hiccups, but it worked out okay. Staff generally friendly. If you're a very light sleeper, beware the constant pinging of the lighthouse, which was...

Great hotel. Great views. Walking distance to the beach. We had a great time. The staff was friendly and helpful. I was a little disappointed there nothing in the fridge. Not even water. With the cost of the room ($400+) and no type of room service available, their should be at least complimentary water and juice in the fridge. There...

The hotel is on the south edge of the marina, right on highway 1 and next to a nice walkway. Parking was free. The room was facing the marina, has a sitting area with a real fireplace, a very small kitchen area and a large bathroom with 2 sinks, bathtub and separate shower. A sliding glass door takes you to...

We were staying here while attending a wedding. The staff was great and the property was in good shape and the rooms were great, with incredible views of the ocean. However, there were several areas where it was obvious that the ownership had failed to maintain the property to a higher standard. Most notable was energy efficiency. Several lights in...
