My family of five stayed here in August 2014. We loved it! It was a nice, quiet and clean place for my husband, myself, and my three teenagers. The staff was kind and friendly and helped us route our map to San Francisco. I ordered a rollaway bed for one of my kids and it was there when we arrived.... More

Note first, that this is not on the beach. It's less than a 5 min drive, but I thought it was closer. It's also not very close to town. Upon first inspection, the room was large, but looked empty. The decor was a bit dated. The fireplace would be nice on a romantic trip, but it didn't seem like much... More

Beautiful views. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. We enjoyed a wonderful massage on site. Easy walk to local restaurants. Good place to stay while visiting San Francisco and Napa. Would love to do this vacation again, and would be happy to stay here.

I have to admit, I think we had the best room in the hotel! It was perfect and beautiful. We had asked for an upstairs unit since other Trip Advisor reviews suggested that. None were available, we didn't hear any noise though. It was a ground floor, corner room with a beautiful bay window that gave us a lovely view... More

We stayed here for a week in Aug. 2014 while visiting San Francisco. The room was quite large and very clean. The beds were very confortable. The breakfast was very good. I guess it would be considered a continental breakfast but it had everything we needed, cereals, hard-boiled eggs, juices, bagels, toast, muffins, meats, cheeses, waffle bar, etc. They did... More

I wouldn't mind staying at Half Moon Bay Lodge again. It was a very nice surprise to find a 3star accommodation exceed our expectations. The room was very clean and room service was prompt. Breakfast was good, although more variety would definitely make it a lot better. Overall, thumbs up!

Traveled with senior, a child, and one adult. Check in was quick and easy. Check out was quick and easy too. The grounds are well-kept, the parking was simple, beds were comfortable. I like the touch of bathrobes for all guests, including the children (much nicer for after-pool instead of strategically wrapping towels and dragging them all over the place).... More
