A previous review that criticized this hotel for its dated décor reminded me of a China tour I escorted back in the 1980s for a trade group that constantly complained about having to eat Chinese food. The whole point of this boutique inn is that it recalls a hostelry of a different era. If you're looking for a large, sleek,...

Room was rather small and musty. Decor dated and older furnishings! Restaurant below not recommended. Daily housekeeping not provided and heat turned off the 2nd night I stayed? Person available upon check-in was very pleasant and helped with luggage. No elevator, so be prepared to carry luggage up 2 flights of stairs. There are better options in HMB!

My husband and I (and our dog) stayed here overnight. The rooms are European-style and very cute. The hotel is in a good location with lots of coffee shops and restaurants in walking distance. The staff was helpful and friendly.

This little Inn is in a great location and the employees were so kind and inviting. I absolutely loved our room and it was a great little escape for our first trip together. Will stay here every time I visit Half Moon.

We had the downstairs studio round the side. It was 1950s diner style, spacious and very well appointed. Real quality kitchen accessories and a lovely dining area made it ideal for families wishing to self-cater. Lovely toiletries, comfy beds in a lovely small town America environment. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Half Moon Bay Inn for 4 nights last summer and found it to be well-located and welcoming. The room we had was a small, inside room with no view but also not on the street, so quiet. The Inn is at an intersection of 2 small streets and over a bustling restaurant. There is also a popular...

We only had a one night stay but what a cute little place this is! The bed was humongous and incredibly comfy. It really had an old inn feel but the rooms were modern and spacious. Lovely bathrooms too. Also check out the amazing Italian beneath! We would love to visit again, the whole experience felt very personal. Lovely hotel!
