Do not stay here! Due to the wedding discount, I was forced to call and make a reservation. The person taking the reservation got the date of my stay wrong, and my last name was incorrect also. When I showed up, I was told there was no reservation for me, and the lady at the front desk insinuated I messed... More

Unfortunately we were overcharged for our one night stay here - we were quoted 199 but were charged 229 + taxes making a total of 254; We have been in touch, but they claim no knowledge. Shame - the rooms were great, the guy on reception was very helpful, actually putting us in one room, but then offering us a... More

Not sure I can pin point it, but it is like all the pieces were there yet it was a blah experience. The room was nice, yet the bed was uncomfortable, maybe the quality of the sheets? I could not get the a/c fan to stay on. A light in the bathroom was out yet it was not replaced. I... More

Our room was very nice and comfortable. The fireplace and kitchenette was great. The walls are unusually thin though, we heard everything going on outside our room. The view of the marina from our room was amazing.

The Oceana is very well located with a superb view of the bay. The new build hotel has been well designed and the interior decorations are smart and distinctive - where did all the mother-of-pearl buttons come from? WiFi is free and quick enough. Our reception was very welcoming and accommodating, our room was changed for one with an even... More

We stayed a night here while making our way down the California coast. We were impressed by the design of the hotel, particularly the parking lot underneath it with elevators that take you straight to your floor. Our room was a King Suite on the bay side complete with balcony. The layout was quite innovative - very different from the... More

Upon arriving in San Francisco we planned on staying outside of the city because of the prices. The Oceano was more than we expected. The staff was welcoming and accommodating. We chose to stay there another night because of the accommodations. They upgraded our room to a higher floor and a bay side room. We got to sit on the... More

I stayed at Oceano Hotel & Spa for a corporate off-site meeting. Nice accommodations with nearby restaurants/brewery. Bed was a little too firm. Hotel recommended professional sandcastle sculptors as a teambuilding activity, which was a huge success. Overall, nice hotel at reasonable cost in Half Moon Bay.

We enjoyed our stay. We had a king suite that was very spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. We had a nice view of the bay off of our patio. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the local attractions. The hotel is only 1.5 miles from Mavericks Park which is well worth seeing. The bar and dining were an... More

I recently stayed at the Oceano for a meeting (Sunday-Wed) and found the rooms and the service to be superb. They were responsive, polite, and the room was very large and pretty. I had one of what I believe to be one of the few rooms with no view of the water; my room looked over the brewery parking lot.... More
