My husband and I stayed for 1 night. We arrived at about 5pm. The room was on the first floor, small patio area overlooked the harbor and the ocean. We went to Barbara's Shack and got food to go, ate out on our patio and watched the boats come in. The room was amazingly clean and very well done. The...

We needed to stay close to SanF but didn't want to be trapped in the chaos of the city. The Oceano is new, but built to look like a traditional harbour building and is very well done. It is attached to a mini shopping area which is convenient and there are restaurants close by. View of the harbour is good,...

If you are seeking a self contained beach front resort with pool, golf, etc, like the Ritz, this place is not for you. It is however, a lovely, relaxing not-to-large hotel facing a picturesque fishing harbor, with nice water views from almost every room. Rooms are very large (our suite 311 felt more like a small studio apt.with separate sitting...

Wedding site coordinators organized a seamless party covering every detail for set up, menu, rooms, party, and delicious buffet dinner. Gorgeous ocean location. There are several excellent places to eat in the neighborhood so you don't need to use your car.

We attended a wedding at The Oceano, which was a lovely setting outside. The reception food was very good. Our room was gorgeous although we were only there one night and didn't get much time to enjoy it - we will have to return.

I needed a little getaway and some pampering close to home. The Oceano is in a great location in Pillar Point harbor. Lots of places to eat, beautiful scenery and lovely hikes nearby. The room was large and spacious with a great view. When I checked in, I was given a complimentary upgrade. I loved the oversized bed, the elegant...
