We thought this place was a bit odd: The building was fine, as it looks in the photos, but it didn't quite have the atmosphere it seemed to promise. It was as though it was built to look old, but in fact it was regular, sterile and a bit plasticky, so not as lovely as we had expected. We had... More

This is a beautiful place to stay. Unfortunately, we had not planned ahead (our own faults) and came in for one night when there was one available room. We were told we would be able to stay only that one night because they were booked up the following nights, and that we would be put in a nice room in... More

A unique place to stay if you need to get away. Wish I could of stayed longer. Great team of hospitality professions took great care of us. A delightful, refreshing escape that I plan on going back to. Almost wish I could move in it was that comfortable.

Had the pleasure of spending the weekend with my Lady at this impressive property. Every aspect of this hotel is clean, bright and delightful. The Staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about where to eat and what to see. It felt more like spending the weekend with friends than staying at a hotel! The room was beautiful and well appointed... More

This hotel is a wedding destination. We went there to attend a wedding and 6 other weddings were held in the time we were there. Unfortunately, the some of the rooms are right across from the banquet hall and the DJ's just blast the music until midnight. The hotel provides ear plugs for the unlucky quests who have booked rooms... More

We had breakfast at this hotel. VERY nice staff and good service. All entrees were excellent great omelette, pancakes and French toast. Food was fresh and delicious. The hotel facilities look very nice and would definitely consider staying here in future.

This is a great hotel right across the street from the Harbor. The room we stayed in was a suite with a sitting area that had a wet bar, refrigerator and microwave. The bed was amazing and so cumfortable I didn't want to get up in the morning. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and greeted us... More

I took a date here for a romantic getaway and we booked the deluxe king suite which was located on the second floor with great panoramic ocean views from the private balcony. The room was beautifully decorated and had a fire place, deep soaking tub with a separate standing shower, two flat screen HD tv's and a bunch of nice... More

This is our 2nd time at this beautiful hotel. We can't say enough about it. The location is great, right next to the waterfront with many great restaurants within a short walk. Beaches and downtown Half Moon Bay (which is very quaint and eclectic) are just down the street. We are VERY impressed with the attentiveness and courteousness of the... More

Oh my goodness! Absolutely stunning hotel and it made for a lovely stay. I will book here in the future and thoroughly enjoyed the Oceano Hotel, location, and especially the staff. Everyone was friendly, courteous and helpful. Room was spotless, bed very comfortable, A/C and heater worked, room design was beautiful.
