My entire family stayed here for our out of town wedding. The staff was more than helpful. The rooms are larger than you would expect and are perfectly decorated. My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night. The hotel sent us champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, an unexpected and welcome surprise. I spent the day before the wedding... More

Very friendly staff...great restaurant, good food at reasonable prices. Convenient location. Bed very comfortable and room very clean. Only complaint...please close off the window to the bathroom. Not at all appreciated.

We stayed here for two nights( the mother's day weekend), the good rating on trip adviser helped me in booking.... our suite was ocean( or harbor) view; you need to know that rooms here are not directly facing the ocean since there is a street and land in between but you could have good look at the harbor from 2nd...

was a little reluctant when I was picking hotel for our romantic getaway as I never heard about Oceano before. Between few recommended options I picked Oceano for the location and reasonable price (Ritz was out of the budget). From the minute we stepped into the lobby, we were pleasantly surprised: beautiful boutique hotel with fresh new feel to it.... More

Spent the weekend with my sweetie for his birthday. I love this place! The staff is so welcoming. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. Loved the fireplace on our stormy night. We had a wonderful birthday dinner at Mezzaluna around the corner. All rooms face the harbor, great view.

I was heading to a conference at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay in March and couldn't get a room in the block reserved there. The Ritz recommended the Oceano as a second choice, which is about a 10 minute drive away, and they had a shuttle service back and forth. I had no expectations on what this hotel would... More

The Oceano Hotel is great for a weekend (or even longer) getaway. The location is perfect; it's well within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. The rooms are very spacious, with vaulted ceilings, a private deck over looking the harbor and a sitting area with a 42 inch flat screen TV. It also has a little in room dining... More

HD TVs with extremely low quality analog feed. Pathetic. Poor service. Average rooms. I had a better experience in a Comfort Inn. I booked 2 days but decided to leave after the first day. This hotel lacks style, service and credibility. Never again.

This review is for a one-night stay on a Thursday night. The Good: Spacious rooms - they call them suites but the sitting area is only separated from the sleeping area by a pony wall. There's even a little wet bar area with a dinette set. A little walk-out balcony overlooked the street and harbor. Go on a weekday as... More

I found Oceano in half moon bay to be a hidden gem. Its not stuffy or pretentious although it is clean and elegant enough to be. I was surprised by how much was available and supplied from wine glasses and a bottle opener to a porch complete with a table and chairs. It felt more like an elegant summer resort... More
