Very lovely hotel overlooking the marina. The rooms were suites - however we had room 310 which had a very strange layout - king bed had about 5 inches of room on one side next to a half wall making it near impossible to get into the bed on that side -and the a furniture seemed out of place. Turns out our friends showed us their room, and it was wonderful..(.room 310 was much shorter and narrower)...the bed was very comfortable, and the service excellent. I would rate it 5 stars if they had told us about this room and gave us a choice of another room or a discount rate.....It obviously affected my enjoyment of the room by having to slide along the wall and fall into bed backwards!!!! This room would be fine for one person.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the marina have a bit of street noise, but the ocean view is wonderful and the fog horn is soothing! Avid room 310 ( and maybe 210 and 110) as the room is smaller, and king bed does not fit the room

The friendly staff certainly makes up for the hotel lacking some essentials. The restaurant off the lobby seemed like an afterthought, was kind of dark and cramped. By the time we checked in, around 7, the bar was crowded with what sounded like several loud locals. We aren't against anyone having a good time but it felt like we were crashing a private party. A nice feature of the hotel is the preferred parking spot for hybrid and electric cars. First time we have ever been offered!

Room Tip: Ask not to be over the garage entrance. The balcony is not that private.

We stayed here while attending a wedding on site. The accommodations were first class. The staff was very attentive. The property is located in a darling little city. Great restaurants nearby. Marina is located across the street and guests are free to walk the docks. The cost of the resort is quite steep though even with the wedding party discount.

Traveled to Half Moon Bay for a destination wedding at the Oceano Hotel and Spa. Was not sure what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised by the beautiful accommodations. The room was exceptional with a well appointed living room, bedroom, refrigerator, large bathroom, and balcony facing the bay. The common areas of the hotel were lovely, portraying a nautical theme throughout. Quite a lovely stay!

Room Tip: Stay in the main hotel in a room facing the bay.

My room was huge, very inviting, and surprisingly affordable. This is a lovely hotel and the location cannot be beat! Each room has a suite-like feel, and the facility is spacious and immaculate. We used this hotel for a business meeting and everyone on the team had only excellent things to say. Highly recommended!!
