My wife and I had never been to Half Moon Bay and this place was the perfect base of operations. Super close to beaches and downtown with restaurants and shopping. Staff was very accommodating when we got to town earlier than normal check in and the room was top notch.

Twice I have stayed in the partial ocean view rooms and my latest visit, I stayed in the Ocean view penthouse suite. Each of my visits has been wonderful. The ocean view room has definitely been my favorite but each of the rooms are very nice. The beds are super comfy and it's nice to have a separate sitting area away from the bed area. I'm not sure that the penthouse room is worth the price but if you feel like splurging...go for it! There is a little issue with the foghorn but quite frankly you get used to it and you don't really hear it after awhile. I've never been on the side of the hotel that faces the road, but that might be a little on the louder side. Also, the wine and cheese reception and continental breakfast are great for a little snack before dinner and a little something in the morning. Overall, I loved my stays and I will be back!

Room Tip: Full ocean view is the best. No need for the penthouse unless you don't want anyone above you.

Beautiful location close to the harbor and the beach. Very lovely stay. Lots of great restaurants in town with nice activities like bike riding, kayaks, walking. Highly recommend for a recharge kind of weekend.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room, though they will charge for it...

We are we're in room 306 which is a junior penthouse. The room was lovely and spacious with a separate lounge area with fireplace and a balcony. There was also a small kitchenette Which was useful. We ordered from the local Indian restaurant and they delivered to our door. The accommodation was very nice and clean and we had no complaints other than one - the foghorn! Our room was just above it and it beeps loudly every 10 seconds 24/7. It was really annoying while sitting on the balcony so we went inside and closed the doors. We could still hear it even with our TV on. During the night it was like trying to sleep with a dripping tap, we were just waiting for the 10 second beep. So my recommendation would be to request a room away from the foghorn....

Room Tip: Choose opposite end of building to room 306

It is great to hear you enjoyed the room so much and made use of all the amenities our guest rooms have to offer. We are so lucky to be close to so many great restaurants that deliver straight to our guests!

Although, I sincerely apologize you had such a hard time with the Pillar Point Harbor Foghorn. We hope to welcome you again in the future and are happy to accommodate specific room requests whenever possible. Thank you for your feedback. Safe travels!


Regards,
Erin

I have stayed at this hotel multiple times over the years, most recently early this week. Why do I keep coming back? Here are 23 reasons:
1 Situated on the quiet Pillar Point Harbor Beach with a foghorn in background and gorgeous sunsets.
2 A few steps to walking path and the beach.
3 Suites with refrig, small stove, microwave, sink, toaster, plates, silverware if you want to eat in.
4 Large King bed with REALLY comfortable mattress.
5 Large double sink well-lit bathroom with tub and shower.
6 Comfortable sitting area with fireplace (central heating but no air conditioning; fan and space heater in room) and TV (also a TV in front of bed). Wi-Fi.
7 4' pool and Jacuzzi.
8 Easy self parking.
9 Morning buffet brkfst - pastries, coffee, tea, hot choc, bagels, sliced fruit, other fruit, juice, trays to take to your room or you can eat at tables in reception area or outdoor patio to the south.
10 Morning USA Today and SF Chronicle papers
11 Very quiet with absolutely no Hwy 1 traffic noise if stay on ocean side - a must for the view!
12 Clean and well-maintained property
13 Exercise room and spa for messages
14 Bring binoculars to see dolphins, sea otters, whales, pelicans seagulls.
15 Very close to Half Moon Bay State Beach and miles of paths.
16 Watch surfers a few steps to south or at famous Mavericks a mile drive away.
17 Walk to multiple sea food restaurants (Sam's Chowder House is next door). 5 min drive to many other Italian, seafood and Mexican restaurants (no Michelin starred dining but good enough).
18 Great beach for kids - breakwater creates calm.
19 Fishing on breakwater or can go out on commercial boat.
20 Visit in late September or October for pumpkin patches and Pumpkin Festival.
21 Kayak and bike rentals within waling distance.
22 Only 30 min drive south of San Francisco and 5 min drive to town of Half Moon Bay.
23 Unlike big cities, Half Moon Bay always seems to stay the same and I always feel extremely relaxed here.

Room Tip: Rooms on ocean side are very quiet. Second and third story rooms have best views.
