Overview

Located near multiple high-rated restaurants
Some recent guests complained of the fog horn from the nearby harbor
About 30 minutes south of San Francisco, the Oceano Hotel & Spa offers stunning views of Half Moon Bay from its perch just off Highway 1. The rooms impress most guests with fireplaces, private balconies, flat-screen TVs and pillow-top beds. (However, some guests recommend requesting accommodations away from the banquet hall, noting that the hotel can be noisy when there's an event going on.) The Oceano also houses a fitness center and day spa, offering a variety of massages and skin treatments. However, it's the friendly customer service that really impressed travelers, with recent visitors saying that staff went above and beyond to ensure a pleasant stay. Meanwhile, The Oceano Bar & Grill serves up quality seafood, but some travelers recommend saving a little money by searching for restaurants in neighboring Harbor Village instead.
