I stayed at the Oceano on a Saturday night in a Double Bed suite as part of a Groupon deal. I wish I could have stayed longer. The hotel is beautiful and every staff person I met went out of their way to make my stay a special one. The room was beautifully decorated so it almost felt like I...

So this is my second stay and while I put it as a couples stay, it was my girlfriend's work related hotel. Just a great romantic place to stay so she had me join both times. Since I work in San Mateo, no problem. This hotel is priced according to the quality of the property and location, so it is...

This hotel is a mixed blessing. What I loved: the reading nook under the bay window (perfect for the stormy day I spent inside), the gas fireplace, almost-instant hot water, really good in-room coffee, fridge works well, comfortable bed. Needs work: 1) when the (loud) heater broke down maintenance responded within 5 minutes. When they couldn't figure out how to...

This hotel is very nice, I live in El Granada and put my Mom into this hotel during Thanksgiving. It is very quiet, has a nice little mall right behind it where you can grab some pizza slices and also shop at the Half Moon Bay classic "Twice as Nice" which is a super fun place to get huge bargains....

Do not stay here! Due to the wedding discount, I was forced to call and make a reservation. The person taking the reservation got the date of my stay wrong, and my last name was incorrect also. When I showed up, I was told there was no reservation for me, and the lady at the front desk insinuated I messed...

Unfortunately we were overcharged for our one night stay here - we were quoted 199 but were charged 229 + taxes making a total of 254; We have been in touch, but they claim no knowledge. Shame - the rooms were great, the guy on reception was very helpful, actually putting us in one room, but then offering us a...

Not sure I can pin point it, but it is like all the pieces were there yet it was a blah experience. The room was nice, yet the bed was uncomfortable, maybe the quality of the sheets? I could not get the a/c fan to stay on. A light in the bathroom was out yet it was not replaced. I...

Our room was very nice and comfortable. The fireplace and kitchenette was great. The walls are unusually thin though, we heard everything going on outside our room. The view of the marina from our room was amazing.

The Oceana is very well located with a superb view of the bay. The new build hotel has been well designed and the interior decorations are smart and distinctive - where did all the mother-of-pearl buttons come from? WiFi is free and quick enough. Our reception was very welcoming and accommodating, our room was changed for one with an even...

We stayed a night here while making our way down the California coast. We were impressed by the design of the hotel, particularly the parking lot underneath it with elevators that take you straight to your floor. Our room was a King Suite on the bay side complete with balcony. The layout was quite innovative - very different from the...
