Slept very well at Beach House in Half Moon Bay, Ca. Very comfortable bed. We liked our room facing the hwy instead of beach & it was quiet. We didn't hear the foghorn at all but it blows every 12 seconds. Great location, next door is Sam's Chowder House! We ate there & enjoyed the atmosphere. Fun place! From the...

Dear joni e, Thank you so much for your comments on Tripadvisor. There is a lot to discover around the hotel. The next time you find yourself in the Harbor, look into buying some fresh seafood (we are coming up on crab season!) straight off of a fisherman's boat. It really doesn't get any better than that. We hope to...

I tend to read all the negative reviews about a place and see if I think I can tolerate it. I discovered all the negatives were right, but overstated. Yes, they have a fog horn that goes off every 10 seconds. Yes, some of the staff are less friendly than others. No, there is no AC. No, there aren't enough...

Dear Cheapmeister, Thank you so much for your kind post about the Beach House on Tripadvisor and I'm so glad to learn you enjoyed your stay. All of our rooms are the same size, and yes the price is dependent on the view, but when guests factor in that there is not a Resort Fee, that parking and WiFi are...

I am pretty much copying and pasting an email I wrote to the manager back in April, who decided never to contact me even after promising to, to discuss our stay. I told him I wanted to give him a fair chance to explain what happened before I wrote my review but apparently he didn't care so here it is!...

The hotel is clean, nice rooms, very helpful staff and have nice amenities including a good continental breakfast. It is perfectly located within 1/2 block of a fantastic seafood restaurant SAMs Chowder House, go for a nice beach walk, or wander up to the Pier. I Would highly recommend it!

This is really an up market american style motel property rather than a hotel.The pictures on the website are quite flattering and show the property from the beach side , which does not reflect that it is beside the main Cabrillo highway.We had a penthouse suite, which did the job, but was pretty pedestrian compared to proper hotel suites.There is...

My wife and I stayed for one night last Saturday and our stay was very nice. The weather was perfect so that helped a lot, but the hotel accommodations were quite nice as well.

This was our 30th anniversary trip to California. We mentioned this at the time of booking. Normally, hotels provide a little something in the room to acknowledge the occasion.

This was the selected site for a glorious 60th anniversary celebration for my in-laws, and in every way proved an excellent choice.

My husband and I live less than 2 hours away. Most people would question why we even stayed in a hotel when we could get away with just doing a day trip.
