They say a picture paints a thousand words, but the one I saw on the website indicated a charm that was not borne out in reality. Right on Highway 1 with an ocean view which was why I picked it. The ocean view and sunset from the private deck of my penthouse suite on the top floor was obscured by... More

We picked Ocean View from a web-search of possible over-night stops on our road trip south from San Francisco to Monterey. The hotel's own website gives an impression of classy luxury which was not borne out by our experience. It is right beside Highway 1 - convenient for a stop-over but this very busy road (and a grove of trees)... More

The location is a definite plus as it is close to Half Moon Bay and several state parks (lots of good hiking). Though the room was big and roomy, the inn itself is very old and does need updating. They advertise "jacuzzi tubs" but there are notices at the inn and in each room that tell you not to use... More

Huge and comfy room; loved the little deck outside my room. Inn is in good location - easy to get around into the various beach towns. Historic building - if you want perfection, stay at the Ritz Carlton. The Inn is an excellent value, and I'll definitely stay there again!

Room was a great size - love the couch! Breakfast at the bakery next door was goodvalue for money. Not much going on in the town though - good little place if just passing through. Room was clean and well stocked. Wifi was quite weak.

Last weekend, I took my girlfriend (now fiance)to the Half Moon Bay area for her birthday. Little did she know I'd be proposing to her. I took her to Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, only but a few minutes away from Ocean View Inn. She said Yes! I had visited a week in advance to view this beautiful area. Despite some of... More

I stayed at the Ocean View Inn to attend the Half Moon Bay Marathon in September - I had read a lot of reviews on TripAdvisor that initially made me a little wary about this hotel, and was pretty much expecting to have a bed to crash in; anything else would have been pretty much a bonus. I probably would... More

My husband and I stayed here last night and thought the place was adorable and a great value. We're glad we ignored some of the negative reviews and tried it out. We were lucky to stay on a night where the ocean view penthouse was free and they gave us an upgrade. We LOVED the room with its vaulted ceilings,... More

My husband and I stayed here last night and were kindly upgraded to the penthouse ocean view room. It was adorable and a great value. I saw some of the negative reviews and am glad we went with our instincts and came anyway. It's important to note that this place has great history and their in the process of renovating... More

Overall in need of many repairs. Found used floss pick on the bedside table. Carpet was stained with grease. Arm chairs covered blankets to hide tears and stains. Windows that didn't close and curtain rods falling off the walls. Checked out a day early and no return call from the GM to refund the last night's stay. The clerk at... More

OceanViewInn, Manager at Ocean View Inn, responded to this review

Hello Cheryl, I find your review misleading and untrue, but never the less your perception. Typically if a guest is not happy with the room/accommodations they immediately come down and notify the front desk. You stayed one night without any comments and then decided to leave, which is not the norm. You stand corrected that you were refunded for a... More
