Stayed in the Pillar Point rooms. It was a cold and foggy weekend but the fireplace and window facing the harbor made it ok. Clean accommodations, quiet, good service. We will be back, hopefully during a warmer season!

My husband and I love Princeton Seafood Company in Half Moon Bay and first spied Oceano Hotel over a year ago while eating dinner at the restaurant which is a close walk from Oceano. I have been looking for an opportunity to stay at Oceano, so was thrilled when Travelzoo had a sale voucher for Sun-Thurs travel through the end...

Very clean and quiet location, right marina side in Half Moon Bay. Centrally located convenient to restaurants and shops. Liked the accessibility of the underground parking. No expensive valet parking necessary. Only drawback for me was no water cups or water bottles supplied in the (expansive) fitness center. Pretty minor gripe. I would stay here again

I found this hotel on Groupon and really didnt know what to expect. Some of the reviews did not give the hotel a very good rating. I booked a "Princeton" suite, knowing it would be on the bottom level, but for the Groupon deal wasnt really concerned...it was a really good deal price! We were PLEASANTLY surprised when we arrived...

3 things you'll walk away thinking - LOUD, bad service and cigarette smoke everywhere. Our room was a deluxe king and while nice the rest of the hotel was a wreck with guests loudly running amuck past midnight. It was so loud we couldn't enjoy our anniversary evening and when we called down to the front desk they did not...

Weekend getaway celebrating our anniversary. The room was spacious with large bath, king bed, armoir, and living space with sofa, chair, and small breakfast table. Two flat screen tv's (living room and bedroom), fireplace (which we used one night), fridge, and patio seating for two. The harbor view is nothing spectacular, however the location is walking distance to a nice...

Love this Hotel, very friendly staff, room service, restaurant and bar on site. Close to the HMB Brewing company as well as the Mezza Luna Italian restaurant, Mavericks, etc. Just a place to relax and enjoy the area.

My husband and I stayed here for one night to celebrate our anniversary. When we checked in, the lady at the front desk told us that we staying in the next building.

We stayed here for one night and had a great spacious family suite which was lovely! The location of hotel is also fantastic, right next to the harbour. However, as everyone mentions the fog horn that sounds continuously is something to be aware of, it isn't that loud but can be very annoying. Also we had breakfast in the hotel,...

We stayed for two nights with young children and loved having extra space. The room was beautiful and overlooked the harbor. The horn that sounded non stop was a bit annoying, but the hotel did supply ear plugs in the nightstand.
