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.

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.

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.

Phenomenal staff, great location, nice rooms

The staff is incredibly helpful and nice. The location is great, next to many restaurants and right across the street from the ocean. The rooms themselves are very nice, though it's unfortunate that the villas are the only rooms without an ocean view although they're the most expensive. Overall, we loved the hotel and had a great time.

Oceana

I was looking for a special hotel on the coast for our last night in CA. This hotel is actually located in a harbor. The view is of docks and fishing boats and in our first floor room of the busy road in front of the hotel. The room was fine but not resort quality. It was clean and large and comfortable. The staff was wonderfully attentive and kind. The hotel is surrounded by lots of great restaurants. The hotel was fine but not worth the price and did not meet the way it describes itself. It's basically a Best Western or Holiday Inn near the coast.

Great location, view and room!

We had never been to Half Moon Bay and are so glad that we picked a location overlooking the bay. We walked to restaurants and beaches and loved our stay at this hotel. Great decor and theme for the beach.

A good time in HMB

This hotel is conveniently located near several restaurants and docks/piers. While a few miles from downtown, a quick drive (when there's not heavy traffic) will get you there no problem. The hotel is very clean and new, and staff was friendly and helpful. Little disappointed that the spa doesn't really cater to walk-ins, and if there aren't any appointments for the day, there is no one staffing the spa. For an establishment that has "spa" in its title, I would expect a little more flexibility. Finally, the hotel is located right on the beach (with a lovely view of the harbor), but every seven seconds, the fog horn makes a noise. You get used to it, and they do provide ear plugs/ambient noise machine, but it did get a little annoying (and walls are very thin between rooms). Overall, very much enjoyed the trip and the accommodations, but thought the hotel missed a couple of marks.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

There's a great little trail (and a few parking spaces) right past Pillar Point. The easy hike provides some breathtaking views of the beach and water near the famed Mavericks surf spot.
