Nice hotel unfortunately

Posted Apr 14, 2014
Pros: The view and accessibility.
Cons: Use upper rooms for guest & lobby level, at least, for banquet rooms as the street & sidewalk are only 20 paces to the sliding glass doors of the room
Building itself is very nice but is sits on a busy road w/people walking and talking - w/cars and motorcycles constantly going by until almost 12:00 AM. Also it is directly across from the marina which is a great view but the buoy bell rings all night. So, if your my husband who is ex-military and can sleep thru a fire alarm then the view is great! If your like me and struggle with needing white noise just know to take 3 white noise machines and then use the one they provide in the room :(

Nice hotel with comfortable beds.

Posted Apr 10, 2014
Pros: I like the fact that the hotel was close to the water and that it was a very short drive to Pacifica which has some spectacular views of the ocean.
Cons: Make the traveler feel more welcome.
This was my first stay at this hotel. The location is very good. The room was nice and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. I liked how I could get directly to the parking garage using the elevator on my floor. The bar in the hotel is ok but be prepared to feel a bit like an "outsider" around happy hour (especially if you are a solo traveler). The locals tend to hang out in there and they tend to be the first served. They sometimes give you the creeps. There is a shopping mall attached to the hotel but it was quite depressing to walk through the mall. Many stores and restaurants were vacant and there was almost nobody there. When I checked out of the hotel I was not thanked by anyone for staying there. It was as if they thought I should thanking them for the privilege of staying there.

Weekend Getaway

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Pros: Great views and a great location. Room decour was very nice.
Cons: Matress and beddinga bit dtaed for a room of this cost. Also, providing wine glasses in the room would be a nice addition.
Location: Marina across the street and plenty of entertainment within walking distance.
A great location and a very nice hotel with a gret staff. Lots to do in the nearby area and plenty of entertainment (food, drink, etc.) within walking distance.

Perfect Hotel for those seeking peace & relaxation

Posted Apr 7, 2014
I had to quickly find a hotel to stay at for a business trip. My office is in Redwood City, and since I am not partial to city traffic and noise I looked to Half Moon Bay. Kevin and the rest of the Oceano Hotel & Spa Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Even though I had never been there before, I felt as if I was a regular. Great vibes! My room was amazing and waking up looking at the bay every morning was just the inspiration I needed to get moving :) When I return I will definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay.

Posted Mar 26, 2014
Cons: I just wanted bacon, eggs, and toast. It was not a choice without ordering ala carte.
We were happy with one slight exception. The bathroom in the villa was on a different floor vs the bed.

Great staff and hotel

It is a great hotel, but you can update your pillows and beads - not very comfortable and outdated
