This hotel is elegant. The rooms are spacious. Nice exercise room. I really like the location. It is next to the marina but the ocean is right there as well. It was away from the main drag and Hwy 1. There were a selection of restaurants within walking distance and a few interesting shops to check out. It is close... More

I thought I booked a room at the popular Oceano, but was assigned a room at their recently purchased property, the former Inn at Pillar Point. The window of the room was literally 5 feet from the traffic on busy Capistrano street. The traffic ends at midnight and starts again at 5 am. The room had a slow draining sink,... More

I stayed at the hotel they have next door and it was great. I had to stay there for a few hours due to an emergency and no doubt, next time I will stay for a getaway weekend. Cory at the reception was great

Good service. Enjoyed the suite and patio. One downside was the window above the slider has no covering and caused an early morning wakeup. Ordered room service twice and the food was great, restaurant quality. Also had the couples massage. Awesome! Close to shopping and great views of the harbor and sunsets. Would definitely recommend.

We booked through Travelocity and will be sending them a complaint. The desk clerk seemed embarrassed when he told us. We were put in an adjacent old property in from of the main building. It is right on the street. Doesn't have central heating or air. So it has a stand alone unit in the corner of the room. It... More

Four of us stayed two nights in their Grand Oceano Villa. It was clean, spacious with two large bathrooms and the beds were comfortable. Our villa was on the second floor of a separate building that connects via an indoor walkway with the rest on the hotel. The first floor is a retail mall. The view from the room overlooks... More

Cute place, right across from the harbor, but...wifi did not work, TV did not work, handle fell off the sink faucet, the clock by the bed kept beeping, even after we unplugged it, all through the long noisy night, and to make things worse the blanket on the bed was so rough, waffle weave but so stiff I felt like...

We enjoyed the spacious room with sitting area and fireplace. The small hotel restaurant was very nice and had good food. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The location was convenient for walking or driving to nearby marina and town.

The good: The room was spacious, included a nice balcony, a fireplace and a large bathroom. It was comfortable, clean and enjoyable to relax in for the weekend. The okay: the service, the overall cleanliness/attention to detail, and the overall location. Decent area, but not a whole lot to do directly near the property. The bad: the noise level due... More
