A few times a year, my husband and I escape to Half Moon Bay. We always stay at the Beach House but feel the rooms need renovating. The Oceano proved to be lovely and perfectly located for us. We parked the car and walked everywhere for three days. The walk to the Ritz was a bit of a challenge, but... More

We checked into the Oceano very late in the evening as our flight landed after 10 pm. We were warmly greeted by the front desk clerk who took extra good care of us in suggesting places nearby to get a late night bite (not many as it is a sleepy beach town). The next morning we met Ken Seidler, the... More

We were looking for a one night stay for a friend's party in Half Moon Bay and literally tripped over Oceano Hotel by way of a groupon special. Even without the special we were going here based on the description and proximity to the party. Note there are at least 4 hotels near the pillar point light house and two... More

My family of three adults stayed here for one night and we truly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is conveniently located in the main tourist area across the street from the Pillar Point harbor. The hotel is attached to a small indoor mall with some cute clothing shops and a few restaurants outside. The hotel entrance and lobby is very... More

My family and I head down to Half Moon Bay every now and then to grab some seafood and just enjoy the coast. On a recent trip my father-in-law put together a stay here, so I can't speak to pricing; however, I can say that the stay was super relaxing and fun. The location is near a couple of our... More

Just returned from a relaxing stay at this hotel. Loved the king suite with balcony. Cozy and romantic, lovely bathroom. Great eateries in strolling distance. The view is awesome and relaxing. Looking forward to our next visit.

We stayed one night on our way up to Humboldt to take my daughter to college. Everything seem great when we checked in. People were pleasant and room seemed to be good. We went to dinner and had come to get ready for bed. My daughter started to take the comforter and the decorated pillows off the bed when we... More

16 of us traveled from different parts of the country for my nephews wedding. Some had villas and others regular rooms. We were all so impressed with the hotel, rooms and accommodations. Had a great view of the ocean, love that they grow their own vegetables, the food was fabulous. Loved the entire area, so many cute places within walking... More

The Oceano is mixed bag of pros and cons. We were very impressed with the description of the hotel. We were looking for a three day getaway, and the Oceano seemed to fit the bill. For over $1000.00, we chose the three day vacation package, which included three nights, strawberries and a bottle in our room upon arrival, $25 breakfast... More

To start off with, we were only staying one night on a get-a-way Friday night from the Bay Area. We chose the Oceano for location, as for longer stays we like the Half Moon Bay Inn in downtown HBM. The Oceano is technically not in HMB, but rather about 5 miles north in El Granda (or some made up area... More
