Overpriced for what it offers. Lovely hotel, and very nice rooms. However, the website was misleading, it appeared that their spa was open for massages etc, but it wasn't. This was the main reason I booked here. Also I booked the same day on Orbitz showed the rate as $320 with tax etc, when I arrived it was $370, that is a $50 increase for what? No spa, no breakfast or restaurant on site. So not worth price.

It is close to everything you could ever need to relax, explore, or satiate a craving for.

Quiet and relaxing property.

Because of Covid the Grill and Spa were closed but we loved the location of the hotel, the cleanliness and decor.

We loved our beautiful suite with a view of the water. The hotel staff was very accommodating, even though many of their services were cancelled due to COVID. I would definitely stay here again.

Didn’t hear any noises from neighbors....so good since I’m a light sleeper.

Nice property and very clean. I wish the view was of the ocean surf instead of docks. We had an issue with the tv the 1st night. The woman on duty came to our room to see if she could fix it but could not. She told us she would move us to a very nice room. The room was up one floor but it was smaller and had less of a view😞. We could see the docks but lost our view towards the left and our view to the right was right into the balcony of suites. The woman was nice and gave us a bottle of wine but the room she switched us to was very disappointing.

Positive: Pleasant staff. Nice property, rooms were pretty clean. Our room had two double beds and a large soaker tub. Nice quality towels and bedding. Not so great: AC made huge amount of noise, so couldn’t use. No extra blankets, only sheets and one very lightweight blanket...no comforter. Outside of our room was a very loud truck with a pump. Both days from 6:30 a.m. Until 8:30 p.m. leaving door open was too loud so didn’t really use balcony. Result: Probably would not stay there again.

This is a beautiful place! Very lovely room overlooking the ocean and harbor. Unfortunately, the Registration was underwhelming. Our check in was at 3:00 PM. I had called on our day of arrival, at 11:00 AM, to ask a question. They answered but put me on hold. She never came back to the phone, so I hung up. Fine...we all get busy at our jobs. So, I called again at 1:00 PM. Once again, she answered, put me on hold. I waited then hung up, again. Once we arrived, The place had no one around. We finally checked in. The next day, we saw the room service menu on our desk. We called to order breakfast. We were informed that room service was suspended. Then why have menus in the room? The staff fell short on this outstanding hotel!

I appreciate how gay friendly the facility was. very progressiv

I liked the staff, the location and the proximity to good restaurants. I did not like the fact that they did not have a pool nor hot tub facility. They did have a spa for body work but the rates for treatments were extremely expensive.

It was a great location. Staff was excellent, rooms great.

Nice and elegant with a rustic harbor feel walking distance to to shops and restaurants

Wonderful all around!! Great location, great facilities

We stayed at the Oceano Inn. Great room looking over the Harbor. Very clean and welcoming. Enjoyed the fireplace wonderful ambiance for the rainy and cold visit we had in H.M.B. The Oceano Inn is in walking distance to shopping and delicious restaurants.

The Oceano exceeded my expectations and was very roomy, clean with a balcony overlooking the boating docks and distant ocean. Many restaurants were within walking distance and I enjoyed the friendly small town charm. Housekeeping is discreet but extremely receptive when I needed additional towels. I loved having the parking garage directly underneath the hotel directly accessible by the elevators.

Very nice place with a great view of the harbor. We dropped a necklace down the drain and someone came right away to get it out for us.

Thank you for the feedback. Due to COVID safety, our comforters are extremely difficult to wash between guests so we opted for blankets only at this time. The noise was due to sewer cleaning in the harbor and not under the control of the hotel. We are sorry that your experience was less than comforting. We do understand but hope you'll give us another try.
