Great harbor locationPosted Sep 1, 2014
Stayed here for two nights in August. Rooms are spacious, well equipped and comfortable. It is true what a lot of other reviews say about the fog horn but this would be the same for any hotels in the half moon bay area. There's no getting away from it really. We couldn't hear it when we had our balcony door closed though and the hotel do provide complimentary ear plugs anyway.

Boat horn noise for 24 hrs.Posted Aug 19, 2014
You can hear a boat horn noise for 24 hrs. Hotel view was not good in harbor side. The price is too much expensive based on the total condition of the hotel.

Love this PlacePosted Aug 7, 2014
Pros: It's location, staff, the room itself with a fireplace and patio deck, on-site restaurant, as well as other great restaurants nearby.
Location: Several great beaches, a lighthouse, the Distillery restaurant. The hotel is connected to a small mall with many small, quaint shops.
We return to the Oceano at least three times a year. It's located right near several wonderful beaches, including Montaro. The atmosphere is very relaxing here and the rooms are great! The staff is so friendly and room service was always quick and served with a smile.

Nice hotelPosted Jul 30, 2014
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Anything we needed was just a call away.We also had a couples massage at the Oceano spa and it was amazing. The only thing is I do wish they had a pool or hot tub available at the hotel. I would recommend this hotel if you plan a trip to half moon bay!!!!!

Party hartyPosted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: the decor and location were very nice.
Cons: The whole experience, it was an expensive exhausting stay
Location: Great food within walking distance but there are also other hotels near by also within walking distance. We will consider one of these .
Checked in on 7-4-14 nice hotel until the party started in the bar down the hall. It was like they were in our room, actually the party was in the hall outside our room until the wee hours. We has a spa afternoon which was nice but over priced! Then the wedding, we saw the bride so we knew there was an event happening. We returned from dinner to hear all the reception toasts and wedding reception events. The party was across the hall from out room and it seemed like our door was a sheet, we heard it all as the night went on the party got lively and moved from the party room to the hall and the bar. Then we heard the room being broken down, tables hitting the floor, vaccumm s hummed along with the noisy staff cleaning the room all night long. When we checked out I mentioned this and staff member was surprised. I explained that we should have been placed on a floor away from the celebration and she stated that that could have been done if there was space. A day too late and after paying top dollars this was NOT the special weekend we longed for. We should have stayed in Santa Cruz at the Fairfield which was nice and quiet had a pool and great friendly staff. Not a fun place based on cost. This is an event hotel and if you are not with the event FORGET it.

Great stay!Posted Jun 23, 2014
Room was amazing and clean! Great view! 1 problem, fog horn goes off non-stop even when there's no fog! Takes time to get use to but very annoying when trying to sleep!

Location: Easy day trips to San Francisco, Monterey, or Carmel and the ride along highway 1 is incredibly beautiful.
I anticipated an open view of the ocean, however there is a harbor across the street that somewhat obscures the ocean view. The room was great with a separate sitting area with a large screen tv, while the sleeping area was separate. I thought the room was well worth the price. The hotel was very clean and well kept, and the staff was more than willing to do what they could to make your stay very enjoyable. There are good dining options nearby and Oceano Hotel and Spa is definitely on my wife and my go back list.

TVs too smallPosted Jun 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
I lived in villa. Kitchen appliances are avail. Seems good for whole family. But there no bdrm. Just a bed in a open space on 2nd floor. Not my type. Worst is TV. You can not find this tiny tv anywhere else. Smaller than my monitor at office. And no digital channel.

Beautiful!!Posted Jun 18, 2014
Pros: Friendliness of staff, cleanliness, beautiful lobby and room, centrally located
Location: Harbor, restaurants, coffee shop, candy shop, brewery
The Oceana was just beautiful! The front desk staff were very nice and efficient. The décor in both the lobby and our room were just lovely. Our room was well equipped and the view of the harbor was great! We were centrally located and had some cool places to eat and drink within walking distance. No complaints at all. I would highly recommend this hotel.
