We stayed here for one night and had a great spacious family suite which was lovely! The location of hotel is also fantastic, right next to the harbour. However, as everyone mentions the fog horn that sounds continuously is something to be aware of, it isn't that loud but can be very annoying. Also we had breakfast in the hotel,... More

We stayed for two nights with young children and loved having extra space. The room was beautiful and overlooked the harbor. The horn that sounded non stop was a bit annoying, but the hotel did supply ear plugs in the nightstand.

This is a really nice hotel. The rooms are as nice as they look with a fireplace and deep bathtub. They supply you with bath products from Aveda and even a cork screw for wine. Beds are firm but comfortable. There is a fog horn that sounds every 15 seconds. I knew that going in and it did not bother... More

We just spent the weekend there in one if their King Suites. Before we arrived we were assured that we would have a lovely view overlooking the harbor and bay. When we arrived we were shown to a lively suite that looked directly at the back of another building and the parking lot. When my husband called to complain he... More

I love staying in boutique hotels. I love the decor and I love the personal touches and attention from the staff. Such was not the case at Oceano. Aside from during check in, not one person on the staff greeted my husband or I when we entered or left the hotel. Even when there were 4 of them chit-chatting in... More

Wow--staff were all amazing. Rates are reasonable. Restaurants nearby are really good. Just an amazing experience overall. Jen and the owner were both available and took great care of every last detail. We're going back for our Honeymoon. If you haven't stayed at Oceano you're missing out! If you're considering wedding destinations, you should at least speak with them.

The staff was great and they let us check in at 2pm. I recommend the deluxe ocean view rooms, especially on the third floor. We also liked the couples massage at the spa and easy accessibility to walk to different restaurants. The only thing we had a little issue with was the slow wifi.

Enjoyed two nights at this amazing property. The staff is wonderful and makes for a enjoyable stay. They were always there to assist your every need. Most impressed with Jackson, the evening front desk clerk. We arrived at 9:45pm and were hungry. The restaurant was closing in 15 minutes. He ordered food for us from the front desk and it... More

We have been to HMB several times. Our daughter worked in Pacifica, so we would often pick up our grand daughter and have lunch there. For Father's Day this year, I purchased a Travel Zoo voucher to stay in a suite, that included chocolate covered strawberries and sparkling wine. We were not disappointed. The berries were delicious and the wine... More

Just got back from a quick stay at the Oceano for our anniversary and it exceeded our expectations. Checking-in was by far the easiest process I've ever experienced at any hotel and parking was easy in the underground garage. All staff were friendly and welcoming. We booked a deluxe king suite and it was massive and very comfortable with a... More
