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... More

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.

Very quiet at night, which is appreciated. Easy access to parking. Plenty of warm bedding. Scent of cedar trees wafts into rooms in a lovely, pleasant way. Majority of acceptable restaurants are car ride north.

The grounds and entry ways are very well kept and the front of the hotel was beautifully decorated for Fall. Modern clean lobby-staffed by very nice people. The room itself seemed mostly recently redone and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. Nice decks upstairs overlook the golf course. The complimentary continental breakfast was very generous with lots of varied... More

From the pictures it looks great and coupled with the rave reviews I was excited about our stay. Unfortunately, the rooms need a face-lift. The lobby looks redone and fancy so we were not disjointed when checking in, but the room reminded us of a decent motel. The bed was good, but the table had stains on it. The bathroom... More

Enjoyed my 4 night stay at the Lodge. Sure it's not quite as impressive as the Ritz Carlton (of which I've stayed) round the corner but it's a fraction of the cost and does the same job!

My wife and I stayed here mid week for a late anniversary celebration. The grounds are very nice, the rooms need updating. Our room had a strange smell, which we later found was due to the fireplace. A little overpriced for what it offers.
