We recently returned from another great three days at the Oceano Hotel in Half Moon Bay, where our lodging experiences have always been outstanding. From the time we passed through the front doors into the spacious and beautifully decorated lobby, the friendly and efficient staff is right there to greet and serve you. We love this hotel for a number... More

This review is long over due. But, after our trip back to CA we visited the place of our wedding reception in 9/09 the Oceano Hotel and Spa. Nancy Nahern is the warmest, sweetest most attentive person. She made this bride feel at ease and that everything was going to turn out perfect, and it did because of her and... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Oceano. We have stayed at this lovely hotel in the past and always find the service and stay to be relaxing and wonderful. The rooms on the top floor with private deck and breathtaking view of the boats and harbour are the best. The front desk personnel are always there to greet... More

The hotel is located in a marina. A fog horn or audio beacon sounds every 8 seconds, every minute, every hour and penetrates every wall in the place. And because there's a big window above the patio door with no curtains and a patio light right next to it that you can't turn off your room stays lit up all... More

Hello Prowlerkat, Please don’t bring earplugs or an eye mask, we provide them on request. We’ve received a variety of comments from our guests including, “I was lulled to sleep by the sound of the foghorn which enhanced the coastal ambiance”. For our guests that are light sleepers, we do offer soft earplugs. With respect to the light, some of... More

We wanted to celebrate our anniversary so we decided on the "Couples Getaway" package. It included champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and breakfast the next morning. The room was very large and beautiful. The only down side was the bed was the most uncomfortable bed I had ever slept on. But I am used to a tempurpedic mattress so that may... More

Our professional association went to the Oceano Hotel and Spa for a weekend seminar on Friday and Saturday. They provided a reception on Friday evening with local restaurants and activities vendors and catered breakfast and lunch on Saturday. The buffets were exceptionally good, the staff friendly and accommodating. Every room is a suite wth a fireplace with an ocean view... More

For a hotel that charges the amount that Oceano charges, one might expect a flawless experience. My wife and I had a great time when we were there, but there were a number of small, but noticeable, problems there. 1. We had arrived after a light shower, and the deck was a little flooded; I was told that the housekeeping... More

While visiting Half Moon Bay recently, I stayed at the new Oceana Hotel. What a splendid experience. My room was beautiful, spacious and spotless. The bed was very comfortable and the bedding luxurious. The views from my balcony were lovely from the blue waters of the bay to the wooded surroundings. The hotel has a shopping mall with many shops... More
