Very tired facility . Room design was odd and we had ants in both the bathroom and bedroom.Some electric outlets did not work so It certainly was not worth what we paid for the room

We had an incredible trip to the Ritz Carlton half moon bay for the happiness festival hosted by the Atlantic. The property is stunning. Chloe at the front desk was so kind welcoming and made me feel like I was at home away from home! What a treat for someone at the front desk to notice my severely injured knee and send me off with some bath salts in the most beautiful bag with the loveliest note. I’ll never forget you Chloe! While we had a nice time at the festival and worked very hard, the best was driving my husband around in a golf cart on this incredible course! Wow! I’ve seen some beautiful golf courses in my life, and this might just be #1. What fun to play and hang out, and enjoy the beautiful coastline and views and breeze with my gorgeous husband who had the time of his life here. We will be back next year!

Close to half moon bay golf.

The property has just enough to do for our young family of 4! It was in the 50s/60s during our stay and the heated pool was lovely and fun! They had lots of outdoor games that we all enjoyed. The breakfast didn't include everything the website says, but it was fine. The staff kept it stocked and clean! We would stay here again.

Beautiful grounds, loved the pool, jacuzzi & sliding door to the patio. Rooms are huge & spaced out, not door next to door like in most. Also loved the bathtub, which you don't find in most hotel rooms. Only note is light bulbs in lamps need to be higher wattage for reading in bed. all in all, a fantastic mini vacation & weather was perfect! I'll be back!

walls are thin so lots of noises from neighbors

My girlfriend and I celebrated her birthday there and it was magical—quiet, beautiful and just what we needed post-pandemic :). Also check out Joe’s Restaurant right in front—great food and huge portions at very reasonable prices. ❤️

Our second visit in the last two months. Great place to sleep and relax before going to the beaches, and or your round of golf. Restaurant across the parking lot called joes but other places as well in town. There is a pool, hot tub and gym. Plenty of space to lounge and hang out on property. It’s not the Ritz (which is just down the street) but it’s just right for our trips out to the coast.

I got to stay a night as it was my first time checking out half moon bay. The hotel was clean and liked the balcony area. Overall the room was good. But every time you used the water faucet or open the water to shower, the water was yellow-brownish. I had to wait to make sure the water would run for some time so that it would go away but water still looked yellowish even after the fact which didn’t make a shower pleasant. Make sure to check water when you arrive in case you run into the same issue. Other than that the stay was good.

The beds were extremely uncomfortable.

Easy place to get in and out of. Right off the 1 so it’s easy to get on the road to get to the beaches and into town.

This hotel was ok for our stay. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nothing special. Very basic and outdated but it was clean and spacious. We had a fireplace which was very nice because it was cold at night. Parking was plentiful as well.

Comfortable bed and linens— great quality. Clean, but dated furnishings. Very noisy, early and late: loud mowing and weed-eating of nearby golf course before 7 a.m., noisy hallways. I had a higher expectation at this price point. Staff was accommodating and service-oriented

Good hotel located near beaches, golf and driving distance to town. Hotel serves its purpose for visiting Half Moon Bay. The only complaint is the noise from the squeaky floor of the room above ours. Seems you can hear every step the people above take when they walk. Seemed to last for a long time while we were trying to sleep.

This is a great place to stay in half Moon Bay, away from the main strip area which is nice because you avoid all the traffic. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay here again!

Jennifer- Thank you for the review but this came to the Half Moon Bay Lodge. We wanted to let you know that it came to the wrong property. Hopefully you can share this with the Ritz Carlton. - Sara, Guest Services
