Half Moon Bay Hotel Guest Comments

“Amazing Hotel”

Great experience at the Harbor View. The room, services, amenities, and the location is the best. It's Worth to have breakfast at the Hotel because the food is tasty and very well Served! All the products in the bath are from l'Occitane.

“Great location”

“We stayed here for one night on our west coast tour and really enjoyed our stay - parking and check in was easy, staff were friendly and the room was lovely, clean and comfortable. Location was great, right at the bottom of the main road and opposite the wharf - would recommend this hotel.”

Great spot to unwind from the City

Jackie at the front desk made us very welcome the moment we stepped into reception. She have us sound advice on several local restaurants ( the Brewery at Half Moon Bay ) was excellent. Room a little dated but clean and spacious , would return if in the area again

“Happy at Harbor View”

First visit to Santa Barbara - this was the perfect place to stay - lovely, accommodating, GREAT location, beyond friendly staff, excellent food, etc. If and when we return to Santa Barbara I would definitely stay there again, and that's saying a lot. Receptionist recommended of her own accord 2 restaurants.... both were fantastic - excellent food in... continue reading

Lovely place to stay out of the city :)

The location of this older motel was perfect for our stay in Half Moon Bay. It is reminiscent of a motel from the 70s but the rooms have been remodeled. Expect basic rooms with small dorm size refrigerators, outdoor hallways, local people and excellent service. This is just the right kind of place to stay on a trip up the coast of California andonly 30 miles or so from San Francisco! Our trip only allowed us to spend one night but had we known about it we would have made an effort to stay longer...Read More

“Worth splashing out for a sea view!”

We had a lovely spacious room with a balcony overlooking the beach, pier and harbour. Great to sit here with a G&T and watch the world go by! It was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the pool area, where good music was playing, though I could imagine this would be a little intrusive for some guests. I thought the restaurant was quite basic for this standard of hotel, but there are good restaurants nearby. Only minus was charge for guests to park - not enormous at $10 per day

“Amazing Stay in Santa Barbara”

First of all the service that others have mentioned about this hotel is truly excellent. I would stay here again just because the service was superior; every one we interacted with was professional and aiming to please.

The hotel location was great for any and all Santa Barbra activities. It sits directly across the street from the water and the views are incredible. Even if you don't have a water front room it doesn't have to stop you from enjoying the view. There is seating outside the lobby area on a patio with comfy chairs and tables. Plus the pool area is...

“Great Location and full service hotel”

The hotel is located on the road along the beach with a view of the harbor. The ocean view room had a balcony. We loved the view and location, tho' there are street noises and street lights to contend with. We would still do it again. It is on the corner where the wharf and dolphin fountain is. Across the street is the bike path. They offer room service as well as...

“Great views & location”

Lovely rooms, spacious & comfortable with good facilities. The large balcony with loungers and the perfect view of the beach was the best thing. As well as the perfect location. But of course it's overpriced being in Santa Barbara

“Hospitality Plus”

What a great stay. Check in was quick and friendly. When they learned we were there for my wife's birthday, they had a card and a bottle of champagne waiting for her in the room. Our room (242) had a panoramic view of Stern's Wharf, the beach and the harbor. The room was large with a desk, couch and coffee table and a very comfortable chair. The mini refrig was handy although much of it was taken up by the mini bar and snack items. The nice thing is that...

“A great hotel”

This was our 4th stay at the harbor view inn, and I loved it more than ever!! We were given an ocean view room to my surprise and the room was fantastic. I can't wait to go back.
I just the love the pool and pool bar the drinks were great.

“Nice location.”

This hotel is in a prime location. It was quite pricey but I guess for a harbor view that's what you have to pay! It was nice enough on the inside but for $375.00 a night I thought it would have been a little more upscale. Staff was very nice.

“We stay there on a regular basis, I read some other reviews that were negative and cannot understand why. The room is clean, the staff is vrey friendly, the Maids are great.
The Girl at the front desk turned us on to a great coffee place just on the corner, we love that place. We have stayed in some of the older rooms and had no issues, we have also stayed in the NEW remodeled rooms which are even better.
Give it a try, they have a new Manager that just took over in the past two weeks.“

“Don't judge a book by its cover”

We had a great room looking out over the pool and the ocean. The beds were super comfy; the bathroom large and luxurious; the food better than many room service menus.
I would absolutely stay again and definitely recommend it to others.

“Arrived early and the front desk was so helpful and kind. Montana girl was great to us. She even advised us where to go and the views to see. Great stay for 2 days, so close to the beach without hurting your pocketbook. Rooms are big and view was reat on the second floor. Go there.

Room Tip: Second floor with a view“

“Great Hotel with a Perfect Location”

The location could not be better and the hotel was wonderful. It is a 5 minute walk to the train station, and a 5 minute walk to the pier.

The rooms are spacious and the staff was wonderful. There are a variety of rooms to choose from (Garden View, Partial Ocean View, Full Ocean View), but any would make for an enjoyable stay... continue reading

This is not our typical hotel, we tans to be drawn to the more modern hotel, but we had to try this.

“ July 4th vacation”

My husband & I stayed here for the first time after searching 4 star hotels in the area and after reading so many negative reviews on other hotels in the area (including ones of smelly bathrooms) this one sounded wonderful. We were so incredibly happy with our choice! The staff was absolutely fantastic and more than friendly, and our room was absolutely beautiful--including a complimentary wine bottle to grace our stay. We loved the mediterranean feel of the hotel and room, which ... continue reading
