About Oceano Hotel and Spa, Half Moon Bay

Bayside hotel with a health club, by Pillar Point Harbor

North Half Moon Bay

Oceano Hotel and Spa is a 32-minute drive south of San Francisco in Half Moon Bay near El Granada, and steps from Pillar Point Harbor. The Shoppes at Harbor Village are 2 minutes' stroll up the street, and you can drive to the cliffs of Pillar Point Bluff in 5 minutes.

Whale watching, surfing

Surfers will want to head to Maverick's Beach, and nearby Rancho Corral de Tierra has almost 4,000 acres of undeveloped land, great for hiking. The Montara Lighthouse provides a sweeping view of the ocean, and Half Moon Bay Harbor is the launching point for whale watching trips.

Oceano Coastal Spa

Oceano Bar & Grill provides a harborside setting to enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner, featuring fresh coastal cuisine. The 1,400-square-foot Oceano Health Club is the spot for a workout before you spoil yourself with a massage and beauty treatments at The Oceano Coastal Spa. The property also offers an on-site coffee shop for those on the go.

Water views and free WiFi

Oceano Hotel offers several room options, many with fireplaces and views of the harbor, Montara Mountain, or the Pacific Ocean from private balconies. You can enjoy free WiFi in the sitting area and 42-inch flat-screen TVs, and pillowtop mattresses will recharge your batteries.

Oceano Hotel and Spa, Half Moon Bay
Great for an overnight near Mavericks
We stayed in a villa unit, which looks like an ordinary hotel room from the outside. When you's HUGE with a sofa bed, kitchenette, and loft with King size bed. I wouldn't recommend this unit for anyone with issues related to going up and down stairs as the bedroom is up the stairs. The hotel was very clean, check-in was fast and friendly and there was plenty of free parking in the parking garage under the building.

Weekend get away
Comfortable well appointed place to stay for a weekend getaway. Like the location near to the beach, harbor, and restaurants. Had a 1st floor room which was accessible so I will return to this hotel again with my mom who is in a wheelchair. Wish thatmicrowaves were standard as we had leftovers from eating out but couldn’t heat up our food. Hotel wraps coffee mugs in your room in plastic so felt that was wasteful/ not eco friendly. We brought our own travel mugs and got coffee from the business center or just went out and got coffee. On site dining was expensive but a nice option if it’s ever rainy or cold and you want to stay in.

Perfect weekend getaway
Lovely hotel and great location. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Perfect for a quick weekend getaway. Wish I had more time as I would have loved to try the spa out.
