We decided on a whim this Sunday to stay over at Half Moon Bay after a long hike. I called the Half Moon Bay Inn in the morning, and was quoted a rate of $185+tax for a king room. A little pricey, but within our range. I confirmed the reservation with a credit card and went on our hike. After...

I'm sorry for the confusion you experienced. Our staff certainly did not mean to offend you. As you know it was a busy holiday weekend. Our rates were posted properly on our website. We made an honest mistake in quoting you our normal Sunday rates versus holiday Sunday rates. We voided the transaction, and charged you our week day rate,...

Rethink your stay here! Myself and three girlfriends stayed for two nights and between the restaurant below the Inn and HMB Inn we spent over $1500!!!!! We had one peaceful lovely evening to be followed by arrogant, blatant and completely unprofessional night provided by the restaurant below the Inn called "It's Italia" They had a party in the back patio...

I'm so sorry your stay at the Half Moon Bay Inn was so negative. I was hoping that you would give us another opportunity to stay with us, using the gift certificate I sent you, on a more typical night in Half Moon Bay and not the weekend of the Christmas holiday party season. We take pride in providing excellent...

Nice little Inn right in town. The rooms are nicely furnished and clean. We stayed in the cottage suite. The bed was very comfortable making it hard to get up and get going in the morning. I would definitely stay here again next time I'm in town.

The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. They showed me and my small dog to our room. The room was very beautiful and comfortable. The room overlooked the main street, right above an Italian resturant. The noise was minimual and tolerated. I had a great time and an excellent stay. I would definitely stay here again.

As mentioned in other reviews, this place is beautifully decorated, very vintage. Desk clerk was great, room was beautiful and clean (rugs need washed/cleaned ladies!!) Bed was comfy, nice linens, towels, bathroom was super clean. We rented the smaller room (over the restaurant vent fan and the outdoor patio of the restaurant) on a Tues night. Big mistake. Apparently, HMB...

Only just down the coast from Pacifica but its a different planet. Pacifica is rough atound the edges and lacks any real quality eateries. HMB seems to have food style in buckets and the HMB " it's Italia" is the top of the pile. Above this joint is the HMB Inn, so be prepared to party with the crowd or...

We're still on our first night, so it's early to give a review... We took the Piccolo room (tiny) but for a night or 2 it's fine. This is an old hotel and it only has a few rooms. No elevator, but only 2 floors. Perfect location, and very comfy. Very into making you feel like you can walk down...

A sweet place to stay in downtown Half Moon Bay- a small coastal town-20 miles south of San Francisco. The rooms are all restored from a former dive hotel - great touches, such as nice robes out to little deck equipped with adirondack chairs and an ice bucket. Great beds and linens. Complimentary glass of wine in the evening. Hotel...

The first thing I noticed was the way it smelled -- great! Spur of the moment trip; lucky that we'd stayed here years ago and it is still in business. Arrived after 10 PM without reservations and was graciously welcomed. Offered the choice of three rooms it became clear that quiet was more important to us than size of room...

This is a lovely and very stylish hotel. It's charming, warm and cozy. I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was gracious and welcoming. The only complaint I would have is that my room was quiet small. With my luggage in the room, it was very tight to walk around. There were larger rooms that I peaked into while they...
