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!

Picked this because it looked nice and it was. Very friendly staff and an excellent complimentary breakfast. Number of families with small children who seemed very happy. Nice swimming pool with a lit fire at 9a.m. Could not use it as had to move on. Rooms are huge and well equipped. In addition there is a working fireplace which would...

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. Relax here all day or take in...

We stayed at this lodge while attending a wedding. The people at the reception were very warm, cordial and informative. The restaurant is located just off Highway 1 (Cabrillo Highway) and we overshot it at night as we drove down from San Francisco even with the GPS that indicated we had arrived when we could not see any signs readily...

My stay at this property went progressivley from bad to worse over the three nights I was there. When I arrived, I checked into a second floor room with a fireplace that smelled awful from repetitive use. Unless someone routinely opens the door, there is no air moving in these rooms due to a lack of air conditioning so the...

Excellent place to relax and rewind in Half Moon Bay! We had a clean spacious room overlooking the garden. The front desk manager was very courteous and helpful especially in making recommendations for places to eat and visit. A brisk walk along a side road takes you to the beach, albeit quite chilly in mid August. Pescadero marsh is a...

Not cheap for a place where you can't see the ocean, but I did find the room to be clean and comfortable. No AC but we didn't need it, (tip: get a room upstairs so you can open the slider for fresh air and not be concerned with security). The room we stayed in had a fireplace which you can...

We stayed in a handicapped accessible room on the first floor because that is what was available. Our first night we had a family with heavy footed children running above us until late at night/early in the morning. There is not a lot of sound insulation between floors! The bed was squishy soft; not supportive. The location is off the...

My husband travels to Half Moon Bay once or twice a year. Anytime I am able, I love to take along, to be with him, of course. However, the Half Moon Bay Lodge is an amazing place to just relax. The rooms are large and clean. (And I've been in many different ones) The grounds are beautiful. The pool area...
