It was a great one night stay in the middle of Pumpkinville. My grandkids from Iowa thought it was funny since they are surrounded by farms at home. The Lodge is nice and comfortable. Our room wasn't fancy but a perfect spot for a run down the road to the beach and close to downtown Half Moon Bay for great...

The Half Moon Bay Lodge does a good job of upgrading itself from the old school roadside motel it looks like it once may have been. Rooms are clean and spacious with wood burning fireplaces. One might find the same level of accommodation at a Choice Hotel, Holiday Inn Express or the like. The difference here is the personal level...

Stayed 1 night. No Uber back to Oakland Airport. Has a restaurant in the front parking lot, that you can have breakfast, lunch , and dinner at! The breakfast was delicious and the german chocolate slice could feed 3! The hotel staff was nice and accomodating Overall I would definitely go back!

It had all the amenities you could want fridge, air con, iron, spacious bathroom, twin queen beds, balcony... Most importantly the bed was very comfortable.. The decor is a little dated although very clean, well...

I really wanted to like this place. It's such a quaint town. Everything was outdated in this hotel. Countertops, flooring, walls. The TVs were old with bad reception. The fitness center was a joke. The pool looked like it was from the 1960s. The lobby, recently redecorated, was quite nice. The two girls that were the receptionist agents were terrible....

Clean and neat and motel-like but adequate for our trip. Large comfy rooms - had a really good nights sleep here. Breakfast was basic, but nice. Staff were friendly and helpful. Nice pool but didn't get the chance to dip in!

Half Moon Bay Lodge is like eye candy for the soul. The rooms are cozy and comfortable with coffee at your fingertips, and a dreamy bed. Abundant continental breakfast each morning but go early as it disappears quickly! Perfectly primed for the meanderer, the gardens are lovely, complete with a pool and jacuzzi.
