This magnificent, award-winning boutique inn was built in 1932 and recently renovated to preserve its Spanish Revival Architecture. Our gorgeous and luxurious rooms have an old world charm, designed with your comfort in mind. Centrally located in the heart of downtown Half Moon Bay, you’re just a stroll away from some of the best restaurants and shops. This fantastical and luscious location is like a little bit of Europe in downtown Half Moon Bay.

We stayed in the Renaissance King Room. The bed was comfortable; the room was lovingly decorated and charming. The accoutrements in the shower were their very own products (shampoo, conditioner and body wash) and were wonderful! They also offered their own body lotion to use....More
