Half Moon Bay Lodge

There are many hotels on the California coast, but the beautiful recently renovated Mission-style Half Moon Bay Lodge, which operates under the reliable Best Western hotel group, offers a surprising value.

At this Half Moon Bay resort, each room, which overlooks the heralded Arnold Palmer-designed Half Moon Bay Golf Links from your desk or terrace, is luxuriously appointed and family friendly, and comes loaded with modern conveniences such as coffee makers with complimentary coffee, pay-per-view movies, and complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access. Many rooms even have fireplaces. Add easy access to the pool, sauna, and fitness center and free continental breakfast each morning and fresh cookies and fruit during afternoons, and you’ve got one of the best hotels on the west coast as your home away from homes.
