Coastside Inn at Half Moon Bay
A basic motel surrounded by sea breezes and coastal hills.
The relaxing San Mateo County coast is the biggest selling point of this modest motel near downtown Half Moon Bay. To the west, the Pacific crashes against the shore. To the east, fog-covered mountains separate the area from busy Silicon Valley. The sleepy town of Pescadero sits about ten miles south; Pillar Point Harbor, site of the Mavericks surf contest, is four miles north. Rooms themselves --- 52 in all --- are simple at best, and each comes standard with satellite cable, a hair dryer and iron and ironing board. The two-bedroom suite features a full kitchen. Guests also receive complimentary access to a deluxe breakfast bar and high-speed Internet. Pets are welcome.
