After a 2-year closure for major renovations, the Ocean View Inn is back in business and the Half Moon Bay Chamber of Commerce team recently had a chance to visit the re-imagined hotel property.

Upon entering the Inn, we were welcomed with an extensive modernized look, starting with the Inn’s lobby area that is filled with light and a sense of relaxation. This area serves as a gathering space for visitors to socialize or enjoy early evening wine and hors d'oeuvres near the electric fireplace. It is also where the new breakfast bar area is located.

After climbing the Inn’s staircase, we toured 9 beautifully appointed rooms. Each room is themed to the coastal area in which it is located and features contemporary artwork and décor, adding to the relaxed ambiance of each room. All rooms are very spacious and feature hardwood floors, contemporary lighting fixtures, sofa seating areas, and comfortable bedding. Some rooms feature beautiful stain-glass windows while others offer ocean views.

All room decks have been refurbished, offering visitors the chance to enjoy the fresh ocean air from outside their rooms. The Ocean View Inn also features a restaurant next door, which helps the Inn with meals, should visitors want to enjoy a meal in their room. Sidewalks in front of the property have been repaired and new landscaping has been planted.
