      It was a good value location we like and it was adjacent to nearby restaurants.

      Location of the hotel is really convenient. Just across from Pillar Point harbor where many great restaurants and activities can be found. I decided to upgrade to a deluxe room with king bed since I was staying for three nights. This room was very nice, bed was extremely comfortable and cozy. Would definitely stay again.

      Location, easy access to freeway. Personnel was very pleasant, not pushy!

      Breakfast and the breakfast location.

      The renovated rooms were very nice. It had all new furniture.

      There was a bit of exterior noise in the morning, but it was not the motel's fault.

      There is a fog horn you can hear all night long. If you want to sleep stay away from the bay. This as nothing to do with the HVI itself because they don't operate the horn. However they should disclose this fact to guest.

      The 24 hour fog horn is like hearing nails on a chalkboard!

      Convenient location

      The beds were really old and uncomfortable and the boxspring had nasty stains and bits of lining hanging down. I plan to report this to the Half Moon Bay Chamber of Commerce and think your company should not recommend it . I would never stay here again.

      The location is great.

      The mattress was old or at best, cheap. Just upgrading that would have made a big difference in our experience.

      Needed a place to crash for a day. The price was great, you can see the harbor from the room upstairs we had.

      The internet pictures made it look like we were on the beach side of the highway.

      Rooms are clean. You can see the Harbor but you are on the other side of the Highway from the ocean. Nice eating places within walking distance.

      Not really a place to eat the continental breakfast in the lobby.

      Stayed in the newly refurbished King-size room. Very nicely done, very nice bathroom. Foghorn is not a problem, it goes off regularly, but not loudly. Very close to harbor and restaurants.

      The Harbor View Inn was clean and comfortable, easy to find. The staff was friendly and actually let us into the room a half hour before check in time.

      On the website it was described as having a view of the ocean from all rooms. Unfortunately, this was very far from the truth. The only view was of the highway. This was the reason we chose this hotel and were very disappointed. We asked for an upstairs room so that we could maybe get a glance of the ocean but were told that all the rooms were booked. But the sign outside still said that there were vacancies far into the night. In the morning there were only two other cars in the parking lot.

      Besides the comfort of the inn, I enjoyed the quiet environment.

      I was told that I would have 2 queen size beds. They were much smaller than queen size; me feet hung off the end of the bed.

      It was close to the beach which made beach going with my kids very convenient.

      It was hard to get a good nights sleep! Being close to the harbor was beautiful but at night when you're trying to sleep it was noisy, also, the highway traffic kept me awake, and the walls are very thin so if you have guests in the room next to you then you're sure to be hearing them!

      Right next door to an excellent restaurant and a convenience store, convenient to beach and tidepools.

    • Older travelers

      Our stay was great! Very accommodating & very close to the waterfront and marina.
