Just a one night stay but enjoyed the very comfortable bed, warm fireplace in the room and welcoming staff. The included breakfast in the lobby was a real treat. Go down and get yours in your bathrobe and bring it back to your room on a tray to eat in front of the fireplace.

This was the very first hotel we stayed in during our recent California holiday and it set the bar very high. In fact, it was the best ever. The room was huge with beautiful views and was decorated and furnished in a modern and comfortable style. There was a cooker and a kettle

We love Half Moon Bay and have stayed in several of the venues along the coast. For this trip, we tried The Beach House located on Cabrillo Highway next door to Sam’s Chowder. The reception was warm by Jill and Lily who made us feel instantly welcome. Our room #305 was on the

Dear StarLady99, Thank you for this wonderful review and for choosing the Beach House for your getaway! The Beach House is your home away from home with all its comforts! Our staff is here to welcome you and assist in enriching your stay, Jill & Lily are very warm and welcoming; they enjoy sharing all that the coast has to offer with our guests. The guest suites are well-appointed, beautiful new furnishing in the living room, most facing the ocean but a few non-ocean view rooms do face the front of the hotel. Just give us a call to book your next reservation as we would love for you to awake facing the ocean and see the sunset from your balcony. Thank you again for your kind words and recent visit. We look forward to seeing you again very soon. Warm regards,

After spending a few days in San Francisco area, we headed to Half Moon Bay for some peace and relaxation. We decided to stay here at the last minute. We called the hotel directly to book our room and it was cheaper than online hotel sites. The Beach House was a great choice.

Hello Krae21, Thank you for the 5-STAR review and making me smile....always a great idea to call the hotel directly! The 3rd floor Penthouse suites are beautiful and very comfortable, as are all our suites. Just a short easy walk to the beach or a long coastal trail stroll with lots to see. The location is the BEST on the coast. We hope to welcome you back again very soon, and thank you again for staying with us at the Beach House. Cheers,

Hello Traveler, The difference between the Ocean View and the Penthouse is the high ceiling, no one above you and maybe a few more windows in a few of the rooms. All Penthouses are on the 3rd floor. Ocean View Suites are on the 1st and 2nd floors only. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Hope to see you very soon on the beach! Lisa

The pool and jacuzzi are on the grand floor of hotel and just outside south entrance - no stairs. You can access the walking path and beach by walking south past hotel and the small RV park - a very short walking flat distance.

"For vaulted ceilings ask for 3rd floor. Ocean view will be quieter"
"All rooms the same except for views"
"Third floor is best, and be sure you have the ocean side, in case there are a few rooms otherwise."
"Third floor is best for ocean views."
"Satisfied with second floor."
