My boyfriend and I planned a last minute getaway here. I really enjoyed the view of the harbor and ocean. The fireplace in the room was wonderful and the Aveda products were phenomenal. It was very clean and the location was perfect! The shower could use a little update but other than that it was terrific. I could have stayed...

We stayed in Pillar Point for 1 night during our honeymoon, and we absolutely loved it. Although it was a bit of a distance outside San Francisco itself but the surroundings were absolutely beautiful. We booked our room via booking.com and actually thought we were staying in the main Oceano Hotel building (although on looking back at our confirmation e-mails...

Checking in at the Oceano Hotel front desk, I felt distinctly second-class not staying in the main hotel. The clerk was smiling and friendly, yet perfunctory, not forthcoming with directions or information. I was there for two nights, midweek, off-season, and the hotel was nearly empty. The desk clerks had nothing to do, yet they acted as though they did...

This was the FIRST hotel that I've checked into that included a space heater and ear plugs as standard equipment. Very disappointing when we realized that we needed BOTH!. Noise from the street and partiers assured us of little sleep.

Pillar point Harbor is a blink-and-you'd-miss-it kinda place, with fresh sea food and lots of atmosphere. It's perfect for the kind of weekend where you'd only leave the B&B in search of sustenance. The rooms are lovely with big window seats overlooking the harbor and gas fireplaces. At night the fog rolls in and all you hear is the fog...

Staying at Pillar Point is a treat. We love sitting in the window seat with the fireplace going looking out at the goings-on in the marina. From the hotel, you can walk down the trail to Half Moon Bay. A great brewery is right across the parking lot from the hotel, and the huge Mavericks waves are close by. At...

I stayed next door at the Pillar Point B&B which Oceano owns (next store). The room was OK, fireplace was nice, bathroom needed updating. Anyways, I had a fever and bronchitis so wanted to order some food and stay in. The room had a room service menu, so I decided to order form there. I placed my order with the...

Unless you're a sound sleeper I wouldn't recommend this place, road noise too load with cars constantly driving down all night, 3 bars within a block with people shouting, talking till 3am, can't do anything about the fog horn sounding every 10 seconds, with windows closed we couldn't drown out noise with TV turned up, stay somewhere else if you...

We booked the entire 11 rooms at Pillar Point in June for a wedding the weekend of October 23rd. We booked the rooms before the website went down, the voice mail box filled up and our angst grew. Fortunately my daughter (the bride) was able to drive over to the inn and determined that the Oceano Hotel & Resort next...

This wonderful bed and breakfast, our favorite since it's rennovation, has apparently ceased operation. We miss the gracious hospitality of the inkeepers, Melodye and Mary as well as the inn itself.
