Great hotel with a friendly accommodating staff. Harold, Dylan and Melanie were a joy to speak with about the hotel, places to eat and the hotel itself. The room was a surprise and joy from the extra bathroom amenities to the working fireplace in the room. The harbor view was great to look at from the patio and even more...

We so enjoyed our stay! We did a lot of walking and discovered several restaraunts we wanted to try within walking distance. We stayed in the Inn building and liked the quietness. The main lobby was very cheery.

I'm a bay area local and needed a single night to take my son over to visit with some friends. I didn't do much homework but was very pleased with this hotel. Little pricey, but the underground parking was very convenient and you can walk to many places. I wish we could have stayed longer. Yes you can hear the...

My company booked a two day conference at the hotel and am glad they chose it. Meeting facilities were spacious and catering done very well. Guest rooms were nice too, with a mini suite layout including a gas fireplace and bottle of wine in the room. Staff really went out of its way to make us welcome and the location...

My wife and I recently stayed at the Oceano for a weekend away from the Kids. The Oceano is a very nice hotel in a great location. We could sit on out balcony and watch the boats come and go from the harbor. The beach was a short walk away as well as a handful of great dining options. The...

So we decided to spend the day at the coast today and booked this hotel in advance rather than making the long trip home after a day of fun in the sun. This hotel is located right next to the Princeton Pier and offers a spectacular view of the bay. The lobby is well decorated with staff eagerly waiting to...

The staff was very nice and very helpful. Our room was very nice and had a fireplace. We had a nice ocean view. We venue for a wedding was wonderful and the food was good. They had a lovely grassy area for the ceremony and after party.

We stayed at The Oceana on Fri, Sat and Sun (April 28-May 1) and absolutely LOVED it! We were denied our pre-booked room at another hotel (read review for The Beach House hotel) and were fortunate enough to end up here with no prior reservations. Extremely accommodating and a fantastic find. We stayed in room 237 which was awesome and...

We stayed 1 night at the Oceano in a deluxe "king size" bedroom, with balcony, with the most amazing view overlooking the harbor. Check in was very efficient. The room itself was very pleasant, clean and the decor modern, in relaxing beige tones. The room had a fireplace, but we did not need to use it on this visit. It...

The hotel was very nice and posh inside. I had purchased a Groupon and was happy that it was a great location. It was on the first floor and so the view wasn't as nice as the upper floors would have been, but still a pretty quiet street and can walk to the restaurants close by. The only thing that...
