Pros: Great place to stay and get away from everything to relax. View of the harbor is the best. Listening to the sea lions and the waves.
Cons: Room Maintenance.
Everything was great until I tried the fireplace. It doesn't work. Called downstair , they moved us to another room. And the fireplace doesn't work. Called again, they sent up someone and he said, the fireplace doesn't work. Everything else was great.

Wonderful Place to stay!

Pros: Everything!
Spent one night in this hotel and wished I could have stayed longer! The room was very charming and very clean! There was a sitting area in the room with a fireplace. There was a refrigerator and a coffee pot! We were able to sit on the balcony and watch the sun set. The hosts were very friendly. The Bar/cafe off the lobby was perfect! We ordered breakfast in and it was delicious! I'd stay here again in a heartbeat! ***** a Big 5 stars from me!

Poor Staff

Poor staff. Unhelpful , incompetent. No valet, No bell hop, staff unfriendly. Attempted to get room service and took at least an hour and a half. Very noisy area. Not relaxing at all. Stay at beach house instead.

Middling Value, High Rent

Pros: The staff is friendly and competent. The Signature service at the spa was terrific!
Cons: Wireless coverage and reliability at the Inn. Pricing of the Inn experience.
To be clear, I stayed at the Inn, not at the hotel. I assume that there is a difference which and I overlooked this when I booked the room (my mistake). The rooms at the Inn reminded me of visiting a friend's apartment. Furnishing is okay, the rest of the experience is very meh... At a Comfort Inn rate, I would have been fine with this experience. At the higher end rate which I paid, not so much. Wireless service at the Inn is terrible and mostly unavailable, at least in the room where I stayed. Hotel staff did a fine job, nothing to complain about, they were very competent and friendly. The rooms at the Inn are just overpriced. The customer experience and pricing for the Inn is relying too heavily on harbor proximity. The balance is not achieved in my opinion (yes, I know what "they" say about opinions). The price for what I received resulted in a negative customer experience for me and makes me disinclined to revisit either the Inn or the presumably better hotel rooms.

Awful management.

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Management needs a lesson in customer service.
In my numerous years of working with events and groups, this is the worst customer service that I have ever received. I could not be more disappointed with the management at Half Moon Bay. I would discourage anyone from hosting any sort of meeting/event or even renting a room with these people.

Very Nice place!

We were pleasantly surprised by the Oceano! Its a beautiful Hotel. The rooms are gorgeous and comfortable. The beds are great! The only thing I did not like was that there was no pool or guest hot tub. There is a full Spa in the hotel for services. Breakfast was pricey, but yummy. Loved the decor. The service was good. Thanks for everything.
