Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

This lodge has been recent riddled and is clean and fresh and lovely. Decor has a coastal California feel. Landscaping is nicely tended. Outdoor fireside lounge area next to a Pretty pool area. More variety in the morning breakfast than usual. Would stay here again, although a little farther from center of town.

I had a comfortable stay here during my first visit to Half Moon Bay; the staff was friendly, the grounds are well-maintained, and this was a welcome change from my usual habit of staying in chain hotels. You'll notice that it isn't a brand new property, but it oozes charm and most leisure travelers will delight in the decor and...

I chose this hotel because of the good ratings I read on Tripadvisor. I must be in the Twilight Zone because my experience was extremely negative and I feel as though a bait and switch was done and I was not at the right hotel. Let me start by saying that I wanted a pet friendly hotel where I could...

Like many small, quaint hotels in the Bay Area, this one is probably a good value, it's just unspectacular. It's right next to apartments or condos, and is bordered by a public(?) golf course. Granted my review might reflect my bitterness about the rest of my group getting to stay at the Ritz, but my first room reeked of fireplace...

Friendly staff couldn't do enough for us, lovely pool and spa, fitness room, great breakfast (including the all important waffle irons, of which there were two), large clean comfortable room. With a balcony overlooking the golf course, it was far enough away from the Highway to be quiet the whole time. Excellent overall.

Stayed one night with a family of 4. Room was very nice and clean. Hotel is right off main highway and parking is free. Free wifi is included. Close to the Ritz Carlton, coast trail and beach. The golf course is adjacent to the hotel. Free breakfast was offered and included hard boiled eggs, waffles, toast, bagels, fruit, cereal, yogurt,...

I haven't stayed here for over 30 years. It's not as upmarket now as it was then, probably because there's now a Ritz Carlton just around the corner. Having said that the rooms are large and very good. The check in was a pleasure and the staff very good. Breakfast was above average for an inclusive deal. The hotel is...

The lodge was very nice. We didn't know where breakfast was or given any info but we figured it out. We were on the bottom floor looking at the pool and hot tub area. It was a nice quiet area. The room was clean and nice. The pool was warm and the hot tub was HOT! The only negative I...

My husband, young son and I just stayed two nights on a chilly, wet weekend for our wedding anniversary. The living room of our king suite (#209) was spacious, and we had a long balcony facing the golf course. We had a microwave, fridge, coffeemaker and sink. We enjoyed the real fire in the fireplace. We slept well on the...

We had an excellent stay at this hotel. The room were quiet, the beds very comfortable and the courtyards, pool area, outdoor fireplace area etc were a nice bonus and well kept. Only about 1 from Half Moon Bay Golf Course (a must play) and a fraction of the cost of the Ritz. You won't be disappointed.
