The Oceano Hotel and Spa Half Moon Bay is the ideal location for a Pacific Ocean retreat. The Oceano Hotel and Spa offers breathtaking coastal views, luxury accommodations and exquisite culinary dining options. The superb location, situated just west of California Highway 1, and only 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco, makes Oceano Hotel and Spa a premier destination. The charming seaport architecture of the hotel was respectfully designed to complement the natural surroundings without compromising exquisite interiors and exceptional comfort. All ninety-five suites include fireplaces, 42 in. flat screen TVs, wet bars and private balconies with panoramic views of the harbor, ocean and coastal mountain range. The unique harbor front location of Oceano Hotel and Spa is the gateway to dozens of activities and opportunities for adventure, nightlife and shopping. Sitting adjacent to the hotel is Harbor Village, an indoor boutique shopping lane which shares the luxurious spa of Oceano. After shopping and exploring local coast side culture and activities, guests can retreat to their private veranda to relax, unwind and watch a harbor sunset. Incorporated into the luxury of the surroundings of Oceano are discreet, eco-friendly practices, which help to make Oceano Hotel and Spa one of the most environmentally sound luxury hotels of California. Please note the front desk is open 24 hours. Housekeeping services are from 7am-5pm. Please note that the Pillar Point units are not part of the main property. They are located at an adjacent location. There is a Resort Fee of USD 2.00 per night collected at booking.

Romantic getaway

This was a great location for a 2 night getaway without kids. The suite had a nice big screen TV above the fireplace and outdoor patio with a great view of the harbor. Nice ambiance for a romantic getaway. The location is amazing - walking distance to several top notch eateries: Sam's Chowder house, Half Moon Bay Brewing Co., Mezza Luna, Barbara's Fishtrap, etc. We did not try the in house restaurant, but good to know it's there if needed. Bathroom tub is very small (hard to fit two) and the mattress was a little on the soft side but otherwise the room was great.

GREAT HOTEL!

I booked this hotel to get away from the city for a couple of days. If you book this hotel, the room is not in the hotel itself, but in the inn across the way. The room had a fireplace and was very cozy. The bed is really comfy and room service prepared it very well. It's near the water and had various stores and shops inside the hotel.

Wonderful bay getaway!

This is more like a B&B than a hotel. Right on the bay and wonderful seafood all around you, this is an ideal location for reconnecting and relaxing.

Amazing

This place was amazing so very freaking amazing. The air the area every thing was amazing and the room well lets just say that was beyond amazing. This was honestly one of my best hotel experiences. I have traveled the world most of my life and this place is magical. One of the things that I liked about about it was that it had class with out all the airs. The staff was amazing the only thing I regret about the stay was leaving. One thing to remember is that there is a fog horn that is blowing but honestly i did not hear it after the second day it quickly fades in to the background.

Great trip

Clean, safe and perfect location. Rooms were big and had a separate living space with fireplace. Bar was fun and right next to fun bars and great dining!

Attention to detail could be better

We booked this hotel less than a week before our stay and could only secure a rather pricey suite. Ours was nicely situated on the top floor with a view of the harbor. Unfortunately it (like pretty much all the rooms) also overlooked two restaurants and their parking lots. One was a brewpub, and we were treated to pub denizens carousing at top volume well past closing time (about 1am). Then, food delivery trucks began arriving before 6, honking horns and letting their Diesel engines idle. The room itself was nicely appointed with a fireplace, sitting room and balcony. However, the satellite reception was terrible for the flatscreen TV over the fireplace; the promised bathrobes were nowhere to be seen; and there were no hand towels or standard amenities like shampoo, lotion, etc. When we voiced our displeasure at checkout we were offered a breakfast voucher...an insufficient response which we declined. Some aspects of the experience were clearly beyond the hotel's control; but more attention to detail within might have better justified the price.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Mezzaluna restaurant is a two minute walk away and is very good.

Decent place, poor management

The location is good. The place is decent. The staff just needs better management and training on how to treat their patrons. However, for the price, I suppose you get what you pay for.

Mini Midweek Break

Convenient, clean,and well maintained facility. Staff made it clear that the travel agcy did not follow their direction when booking rooms and that we were lucky to get the last room even though it was mid week. No pool, hot tub, fitness room or beach, but close to restaurants and the places we wanted to see.
