Half Moon Bay, California
Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at the recently remodeled Dream Inn on 4/28. We had just come off staying in a couple of not-great hotels in Carmel, and the Dream Inn was exactly what we needed to cure us of our travel exhaustion. My wife loved the surf murals on the hallways, along with the themed carpets. The rooms were gorgeous and the...

This is a delightful place to stay if you plan to go to The Boardwalk, as it's in easy walking distance. No parking, no traffic. It is also extremely clean and comfortable, and you can't beat the view, or listening to the surf to put you to sleep.

All of the Dream Inn staff were excellent. The room was superb and clean. I will return and do it again later this year. I thought there was a problem with the heater so I called the front desk and they sent a very pleasant maintenance man. He was very kind when he showed me the thermostat...lol.

The staff was wonderful. The room was clean and the housekeeping staff was always prompt. The outside porches of the room had an abundance of bird droppings The pool and hot tub were always clean and the pool service was gracious. I do think that $25.00 for parking is steep since the price of the rooms is also quite high.

I have travelled extensively and I would rank our stay at the Dream Inn as one of the best experiences we have ever had. We travel as a school group and the hotel goes out of their way to make it a wonderful experience for all of us. Truly a highlight of the trip.

Beautiful views. Bike's were a treat. Room was nice. Having to valet park and pay for parking was the only downfall I had. Walking distance to the pier, beach, restaurants, and shops. Courteous staff. Kind of pricey but I would do it again

No $25 parking fee was a little disappointing and the hotel was on the pricey side. The service and facilities and location are top notch! I would stay here again not during peak season. The food at the restaurants was not good quality you are paying for the view.

A really beautiful place and the remodel was well done. Comfortable beds and the staff was amazing. The whole staff was attentive and made you feel like they were genuinely happy to help with anything you needed. Pool area was beautiful and the location was perfect.

We so enjoyed our 4 days at the Dream Inn. The staff is quite accommodating. The down sides do include the price for parking, $25.00 AND no continental breakfast although they do have coffee in the room and room service. Pay attention to the time of year you go and the rates. The hot tub in great and again the...

We try to get here once or twice a year to get away from the hustle of the valley, short distance and they can spoil you. Not the same as Cancun but a great get-away and great for taking long walks on the Board Walk or the beach. The option for taking stairs is great exercise.

“The view is better the higher the floor but all room face the ocean”

“Every room is good. Not a bad view anywhere and the old brick style makes them quiet!”
CorDill, 20 Apr 2017 | Read review
“The first floor offers easy access to the pool and is on a cliff-side, so you don't have to worry about anyone getting in from the deck.”
SeattleNMNative, 16 Apr 2017 | Read review
“The Tower rooms are really nice because the view is more widespread and quieter because they are further from the pool.”
TrixieRabb, 30 Mar 2017 | Read review
“All rooms have an ocean view. I prefer the high tower rooms, but I think anything above the second floor would be good.”
