We stayed at the a Oceano Hotel & Spa for the weekend to celebrate my birthday (it was also a Christmas present). We had a large suite on the 3rd floor with a view of the marina and ocean. The room was beautiful with a nice seating area in front of a fireplace and wall-mounted TV and adjoining wet bar... More

setting: You have the feeling you step into a pottery barn decoration show room, when you step into the hotel room. Very nice setup comfortable bed. Very light. Welcoming bathroom and a gas fireplace round the feeling up. Only thing to remember you hear the harbour horn interval during the entire night. Earplugs would be helpful. service: nice and welcoming.... More

Great motel close to harbor area in Grenada. Right next to Half Moon Bay. Good restaurants are walking distance. If they are in season you can buy fresh crab right off the boats on the docks to take home. While we were there they were $6.99/lb Dungeness. Rooms were nice with bay views and fireplaces. Our room also had a... More

We had a Groupon deal and stayed here 3 nights. We had a great room that faced the harbor. The rooms are very spacious, with a separate sitting area and private balcony and fireplace that kept the room warm and toasty. The bathroom was great with both a very nice high shower and a big bathtub. The hotel's location is... More

What a great place to celebrate the New Year! Oceano is a great hotel in Half Moon Bay. My husband made reservations for their New Year's Eve package (for a 1-night stay in a King-bed room with an extra night added, a bottle of sparkling wine in the room, credit for a brunch-for-2 in the hotel dining room, and a...

I stayed at the Oceano on a Saturday night in a Double Bed suite as part of a Groupon deal. I wish I could have stayed longer. The hotel is beautiful and every staff person I met went out of their way to make my stay a special one. The room was beautifully decorated so it almost felt like I... More

So this is my second stay and while I put it as a couples stay, it was my girlfriend's work related hotel. Just a great romantic place to stay so she had me join both times. Since I work in San Mateo, no problem. This hotel is priced according to the quality of the property and location, so it is... More

This hotel is a mixed blessing. What I loved: the reading nook under the bay window (perfect for the stormy day I spent inside), the gas fireplace, almost-instant hot water, really good in-room coffee, fridge works well, comfortable bed. Needs work: 1) when the (loud) heater broke down maintenance responded within 5 minutes. When they couldn't figure out how to... More

This hotel is very nice, I live in El Granada and put my Mom into this hotel during Thanksgiving. It is very quiet, has a nice little mall right behind it where you can grab some pizza slices and also shop at the Half Moon Bay classic "Twice as Nice" which is a super fun place to get huge bargains....
