Nice hotel with nice people. Easy walking distance to great eats and views. Only a couple of minor complaints. Room directory stated that the lounge/restaurant was open daily at 8:00 am but most days it did not open until 4:00 pm. The maid neglected to leave cream and sugar for coffee for two days. Otherwise a great trip.

We stayed here last Wednesday night using a Groupon. Location is right across from the marina and across from Barbara's fish trap restaurant. You can walk from the hotel along the coast or drive a few minutes to walk on the beach. The beach is worth all the Bay Area traffic I drove through. Don't be surprise if the beach... More

Beautiful Weather, Beautiful Room , Beautiful View. We had a room on the third floor. Tthis room may be larger than some other rooms as there was enough room for a King size bed, a nice sitting area with a table and fireplace, plus a balcony. The bathroom has both a tub and a shower. The view of the harbor... More

beautiful location and classy but casual Hotel. The folks there did everything they could to make my stay enjoyable. When I told him I thought my room should have a balcony they were nice enough to move me to a suite that had a wonderful balcony overlooking the Marina. I couldn't have been happier. There is one thing and it... More

My niece and I were looking to spend some quality time together and found the Oceano Hotel. It's located in Princeton a little north of Half Moon Bay, famous to surfers for Mavericks. We had a lovely suite that looked over the bay. There was a welcoming bar/restaurant in the hotel. We parked the car and hardly needed it. Great... More

This hotel is located in a sleepy little harbor area at the northern tip of half moon bay, about a 5 to 10 minute drive from town. The rooms are nice and comfortably furnished with a little sitting area and kitchenette. However, I would be far more selective with future bookings. Our room was on the ground floor on the... More

The location of the hotel is right at the sports/fisher harbour. In walk distance there are a few restaurants. The area is quiet and has the North Californian charm. This is also reflected in the very spacious (>50sqm) room which include a fireplace with sofa and big screen TV. A second TV is at the bed. Spacious is also the... More

The staff was very pleasant. I only spoke with them during check in and check out but whoever does the hiring here definitely knows the meaning of customer service. I like to feel welcomed and I definitely felt that! The room was nice and was complete with fireplace, balcony and yes, even ear plugs. Our view was of the harbor.... More

We booked a room at the Oceano Hotel & Spa for two nights. We are so glad we stayed here. The hotel and room are tastefully decorated and very clean. Our room was on the second floor with a harbor view and had a nice little balcony to sit and watch the boats go in and out. For those who... More
