Love this place and am a returning guest!!!! Love the location, the spa, room service was good, the walkable access to nearby resturants and so many other activities. . My retirement party was here this past weekend, (my choice), and it was perfect. We all are planning to return for a repeat get together.We all had the best time. One... More

Visited the Oceano Hotel and Spa on a whim for relaxation. We had a great time, staying one night. Lovely hotel, great food in the Grill. Our room was comfortable with an adequate view of the harbor. It was very quiet and we splurged on massages. All in all a very lovely getaway. Would definitely visit again.

This is a beautiful hotel. Everyone is so nice. We had a great room with fireplace, and a balcony that overlooked the harbor. The bathroom is large. The lobby is beautiful. Parking is underground. Walking distance to several restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay!

Great location, a bit pricey but it's expected in Half Moon Bay. My family was a wedding guest here, the room they gave us really worked for us because it's about five steps to the ballroom where the reception was held so it was very convenient. But it might be annoying to other guests since it can get loud and... More

We had a business meeting here, so I can't comment on the price (that was covered by someone else), but wow! what large suites. I had a king bed, sitting area with fireplace, small dining table with sink, mini-fridge, etc., and a small balcony overlooking the harbor. Best of all was the bathroom. Huge! Double points for the separate shower... More

Apparently if you're getting married this is the place to go. If you're looking for a hotel that has loud parties with drunk people running up and down the halls, you're going to love this place! And if you're lucky, they'll put you in a room directly across the hall (10 to 15 feet away) from where the wedding reception... More

I stayed in the Inn which is a separate building to the main hotel. It was a lot cheaper than the main hotel ($100 less per night) but I don't feel like I'm in the cheap seats! Vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace large room with bathroom fittings and furniture in 'shabby chic' style. But best of all with a large bay... More

I have stayed here a few times. Once on a girls trip with my mom and sister and once with several couples. The rooms have balconies facing the ocean, fireplaces and refrigerators. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. I will be going back again for sure! The brewery is right across the parking lot and the Italian restaurant within walking... More

My husband and I booked a stay last minute for a get away. Room was very spacious and clean. Bed was very comfortable. Beautiful location. Would highly recommend a stay for couples. Lots of places to eat nearby. Room service was prompt and yummy. Staff was very helpful and friendly as well.

The folks at Oceano are working hard to do a lot of things right. Located in El Granada, a few miles north of the town of Half Moon Bay, the Oceano boasts large rooms with views of the Pillar Point Harbor, with lots of seaside charm and great service. The room and hallway appeared to be fairly freshly painted in... More
