Booked last minute to go for Mavericks. Location was perfect for us, just across the highway from the harbor. We checked in quickly and easily, reception was very friendly. We had a room facing the harbor, downstairs. It had been recently remodeled and was clean. Bathroom had Kholer faucets and a multi-head/waterfall shower, with was lovely! Fresh picked flowers on...

Moderately priced hotel with upgraded rooms (new bath and living space with new furniture). Generally quiet, although being close to Highway 1, there can be some occasional noise Walking distance to all the attractions of Pillar Point Harbor -- restaurants, shops, beaches, marina and parks. Serves a small continental breakfast. Plenty of parking on the property or on the street.

I called in to ask about the pet policy and was told my rate would be $79.99 plus tax, however, when I arrived I was suprised with a $30 pet fee and told the only room that was pet friendly was on the ground floor. When I pressed the matter the receptionist suggested it was my fault for not specifically...

My room was in desperate need of a renovation, stayed in a room with 2 double beds, wi-fi didn't work. Hotel is in good location just across the street from Harbor, and I can't say enough about how wonderful the staff was! From my early check in request that was granted and every encounter I had with staff was great...

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 The furnishings are a bit outdated but the bed and pillows were super comfortable!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...
