Gorgeous hotel, wonderful location, great trip :)

Great location. Only note is that there's a consistent bell/boat honk, which makes it tricky to sleep at night. Hotel provided ear buds, but those don't help me sleep either.

Not a spa hotel at all. But great hotel.
Spa is not part of hotel, closes at 6pm, so not really spa hotel at all. Spa staff snooty and unfriendly on phone. Hotel has killer views, great rooms. Hotel staff great.

Very Good8.0
Cute, comfortable out-of-the-way lodging
The photos suggest that this is a rustic inn, but it is a thoroughly modern hotel that is (unfortunately) decorated with faux New England-style "weathered" furnishings. Once you get over the decor, it is a great place to stay. The rooms are huge, have a very nice fireplace, and high-quality bath supplies. There is the issue of the foghorn in the distance that some reviewers have mentioned, but it did not bother us. The hotel is out-of-the-way, even for out-of-the-way Half Moon Bay, and is tucked behind a small and sparsely-tenanted shopping center. There are some good restaurant choices within walking distance--we ate at the coffee shop right outside the doors of the shopping center, and had a delicious breakfast. Excellent for an overnighter, but probably too little to do in the neighborhood if you are staying for several days.
