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 am extremely disappointed in the room given to me and my husband this weekend. I booked a room at the Oceana Hotel (advertised as a four star). Instead, I arrived and was informed our room was in a little building outside in the parking lot. We then wheeled all of our luggage out across the parking lot to more... 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.

We found the hotel late on a Sunday night and got a fantastic discounted room for the night. Very friendly, helpful staff and a huge room overlooking the bay. HMB brewing company is also 50 yards away which had great food and drink.

Stayed in the Pillar Point rooms. It was a cold and foggy weekend but the fireplace and window facing the harbor made it ok. Clean accommodations, quiet, good service. We will be back, hopefully during a warmer season!

My husband and I love Princeton Seafood Company in Half Moon Bay and first spied Oceano Hotel over a year ago while eating dinner at the restaurant which is a close walk from Oceano. I have been looking for an opportunity to stay at Oceano, so was thrilled when Travelzoo had a sale voucher for Sun-Thurs travel through the end... More

Very clean and quiet location, right marina side in Half Moon Bay. Centrally located convenient to restaurants and shops. Liked the accessibility of the underground parking. No expensive valet parking necessary. Only drawback for me was no water cups or water bottles supplied in the (expansive) fitness center. Pretty minor gripe. I would stay here again
