“cool place, you should visit if in Half Moon Bay area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Nice and confortable hotel, whole decoration and ambiance is really perfect, our room was just I requested, from pillows to towels, they did amazing job, I travel with my family so I was really happy; I recommend it for all families and couples!, even solo travelers.
The only thing the place may improve is some nice face or small smile when check in /check out,
so serious the guys in there

Room Tip: Ask for a bay view, anyplace is really good

What a birthday surprise to find out I was headed to the Oceano at Half Moon Bay! I walked into our suite and had a beautiful floral arrangement waiting for me from my husband. They did an amazing job with his over-the-phone instructions!
We had a harbor view and enjoyed every minute of it including the quaint harbor images and sounds of the fog horn. If you do not like the sound, they supply ear plugs!
Everything is super clean and comfortable. The staff is exceptional and room service delivered promptly with a smile!
Dinner was at Mezza Luna - wonderful and lunch was at Half Moon Bay Brewing Company where the bloody mary's were divine!

The best Hotel I've ever been to. Comfortable beds, beautiful room, lovely view. Also enjoyed the gym open from morning till 11 p.m. Spa also available. We truly enjoyed our stay and we recommend this hotel to newly weds and couples. Ideal for families too.

If you are a light sleeper the fog horn might keep you up, it is also close to local business' so early in the morning there is unloading delivery trucks and garbage truck noise. We stayed in the Pier Point which is separate from the main hotel. It was nice and private with a fireplace and harbor view. The room was quite cold until we found the small portable heater in the closet. Free wi fi signal was not strong enough to use at our room. I got the room for $150 so not a bad deal overall.

We stayed here when we were traveling down the California coast before heading to Carmel. It was a great spot and beautiful hotel. The room was extremely clean, very up to date, and had every ammenity we needed plus some, although I do not remember a pool here. It was just a quick walk to Half Moon Beach and there are restaurants/cafes right next door. My favorite hotel by far on this particular trip.

Room Tip: Ask for room with view of the marina. Well worth it!

This was our second time staying at Oceano, the first being about a year and a half ago. Since it was our second time, we requested that we stay in the same room we had the first time. The staff were able to accommodate us and we LOVE LOVE LOVE this room! I believe this is the best room in the place. It overlooks the harbor, is super quiet, and very spacious. The room has a king bed in it (with a television in an armoire at the foot of the bed) and a half wall separates this area from the living room area. The living room area has a couch, fireplace, television, refrigerator and microwave in it. The bathroom is quite large and it has a big shower with a separate soaking tub.
The hotel is centrally located with shops and restaurants nearby. Although why would you want to leave this room? The room and the hotel was exceptionally clean and well decorated. Whenever we are in Half Moon Bay, Oceano is going to be where we stay!

Class! Yes, this is a very classy place to stay near the ocean. I think that having class is a second nature of the staff. Warm and friendly are the first nature of them. Not much of restaurants and shops, but you can find good local restaurants. Great place for reconnecting with your people. Fun.

Room Tip: With a room on the marina you will hear the horn of the ships all night long.
