This is good spot if you are on the coast and need to find a place to stay for a reasonable price. It is not modern or fancy but beds were comfortable enough. It was not extremely quiet so do not plan on sleeping in. Clean rooms even if they were a bit dated. The bakery / cafe across the...

2 starts only because the front desk lady was sweet and the location was perfect for us. It's SMELLY, the toilet didn't flush and a hand towel had what we assumed make up stains. My bad, I read the reviews and still decided to book because it was the closest to the pier where we wanted to be but it's...

The location is close to all the good bars and restaurants. The furnishings are a bit outdated but the bed and pillows were super comfortable! It was clean and the staff was very nice. Loved our over night.

I would DEFINITELY NOT recommend this motel to anyone. There were many problems. Coffee maker in bathroom very unsanitary, brown stains on white towels, cigarette burn Mark on night stand even though "non-smoking" room, very hard to sleep due to very busy highway outside window that went all night. I would have accepted all of that and paid the $158...

This was my wife's choice of accommodation on our Pacific Coast Highway Road Trip, I was a little bit sceptical, but we arrived the staff made us feel welcome, and the room was a decent size, I feel they just need updating, as this can put off the picky traveller. Good views of the bay, but the main road can...

No Air conditioning ! What??! The accommodations are messy and there's a plug in heater. I would hope a remodeled room would have a better method of HVAC, and worst of all, the awful customer service made us leave half moon bay for the weekend and go south to Monterey - which turned out to be the best part of...

Sort of retro (could use some frills but lovely view of ocean, convenient parking and within walking distance of a few good restaurants. Very clean, friendly staff, comfortable beds. Rates reasonable for the area and the season.

Harbor View has no air conditioning.You are to open the windows and hear steady traffic and the harbor horn which sounds loudly, regularly all night.Not fun and not safe if you are on the first floor.

I don't get the reviews that this hotel is quiet. The road noise was so overbearing that it was impossible to sleep with the windows open, there was also a loud beeping noise coming from somewhere (12 seconds between beeps I counted them for hours). It is what is is, a last minute hotel because everything else was full. People...

My family and I just stayed at this hotel last week and while it is in need of some work and isn't the cleanest hotel in the area we were pleased with the location and the price. Unfortunately, we were treated horribly by the manager Marina. After all the years of staying down at the coast I have never seen...
