We love staying here whatever the weather. Staying during a big storm is amazing! Take your rain gear, go for a long walk along the walkway. Get good and tired, stop along the way back at one of the charming restaurants you can easily walk to, get yourself a warm beverage (I recommend the Nutty Irishman at Joanne's bar which...

Dear Laura S, Thank you for your wonderful review, it was a pleasure to read! I couldn't agree with you more that there is something extra fun and cozy about staying with us during a big storm. Ketch Joanne's is always a charming spot, but as you mentioned, that big warm stove really is special when the weather is chilly...

I was in town for both business and to visit family. As I usually stay privately, this was the first time in a long time that I needed to stay in a hotel in town. The first time, I was at the Ritz but that was also on someone else'd dime so not an option this time. Nevertheless, I won't...

This place feels almost like staying in a condo rather than a hotel. I liked that. I liked the view for sure. On the beach, wonderful sunset. Nothing to report that wasn't good. The continental breakfast wasn't that great, but good enough. All else was very nice!

Dear Doodledum1, Thank you for sharing about your stay with us! Our hotel is unique and, you're right, a bit like a condo! In fact we loosely refer to our property as a "condo-tel". It's a pleasure to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Beach House. This time of year has particularly breath taking sunsets! Thank you again...

We stayed at the Beach House a couple years ago and it was so fabulous that I have been dreaming about staying again ever since! My recent stay did not disappoint. Can't beat the location, accommodations and super friendly staff! Even though I live in the Bay Area (20 miles away) it feels like a complete escape from the rat...

4 of us shared a "suite" at the Beach House. First things first, having 2 steps down to where the sofa bed lives don't make it a suite! However, if one walked out through the windows and onto the balcony, heaven awaited. The most glorious view of the bay, lit by stunning winter sun made other drawbacks seem petty. You...

Dear Bruce P, Thank you for taking the time to write about your time in Half Moon Bay. You are correct that our rooms are not in fact suites, they are junior suites which accounts for the lack of a wall and door completely closing off the living room from the bedroom. That being said I am thrilled to hear...

Our Jr. Suite was on the ground floor with a patio. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and harbor. Bathroom was spacious; sleeping area with king bed was slightly elevated with two steps down to the living area. The kitchenette allowed us to enjoy a late breakfast without leaving our room. We had a nice, relaxing, comfortable 2-night...

After a proposal in Half Moon Bay, we stayed at the Beach House and it was amazing. Just a short walk to Sam's Chowder house, the beach and harbor, couldn't ask for a better time. Look forward to going back!

Beautiful place... loved having the walking path right there in front. We walked to dinner at Sam's Chowder House. Nice cheeses at the Wine & Cheese happy hour, and delicious pastries and bagels for breakfast. Hope to come back again soon!
