Our room was very clean and well appointed. It almost appeared as if no one had ever stayed there prior to our visit. It had a nice bay window facing the bay. Very clean. Great shower. Several restaurants and working fishing pier within walking distance. We would definitely stay at Harbor View again.

First and foremost, the people were wonderful! The place is peaceful and relaxed even with the busy coffee shop next door. I loved the spacious bathroom with its full length mirror(if you need it) and sliding door shower; fluffy towels, comfy beads and lots of room. Internet is even free, Yay! You'll find the beach really close (I found soo...

I only spent one night here so my review is not based on any long term opportunity to sample the facilities! I was late arriving and the receptionist was great and very helpful. The room was reasonably sized and very clean. That's the good bits. Unfortunately my room's shower had seen better days - water pressure poor, temperature scalding and...

On the last night of our 18 day camping trip from LA to Canada and back we were looking for an opportunity to pamper ourselves. This was not possible at the Harborview Inn. We expected more comfort and cleanliness for the price (the cost was $50.00 more than the Doubletree we stayed at in Portland.) The beds were old and...

We stayed here on the last night of our 3 week trip around California and Vegas, it was a really nice hotel. The bed was really nice and had a great shower. It was situated in a beautiful quiet area, perfect for winding down. It was also around half hour drive to San Francisco Airport. I would recommend this hotel,...

Loved this hotel. Room was large and nicely furnished quite differently from most hotels. Mattress & pillows were very comfortable. Bathroom was great with a large standalone shower. Position was good with a view of the sea. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was basic but included apple juice, orange juice and low fat yoghurt which was more than...

Had a great stay, hotel is clean and staff is very friendly. Location is great, with a limited view of the Marina. Highlights are that it is just minutes from downtown Half Moon Bay and took just over half an hour to get to the Presidio in San Francisco. It is also roughly an hour to Santa Cruz. Great nearby...

Location right across from the Harbor where you can walk to the village for great food and catch the fishing boat or or take a short drive into Half Moon Bay for all the activities available there. Great value.

View of the harbor, clean room, older T.V.. Spotless room with mini-fridge and microwave at reasonable cost. Lovely staff - nice light breakfast in the morning. Perfect stop for the budget traveler. Good wi-fi and desk for laptop.

The room was decorated about how I would expect but the bed was horribly uncomfortable. I felt like I was sleeping on bare springs. I did not sleep well for the two nights that we were there. I have a bad back amongst other medical issues and the bed was torturous to me. My hubby also felt uncomfortable. The room...
