Location was excellent, needs improvement,AC unit was noisy, bed was ok. The likelihood of us returning is very slim. Surroundings was ok, Starbucks was within walking distance. Enjoyed old town San Diego and atmosphere was great!

This place was great! It was right on the beach and had a cute little courtyard area to sit and relax in. A lot of restaurants were within walking distance so we just parked the car and walked everywhere while we were here. My only complaint would be that the rooms are a little small. It was perfect for the...

First trip to California. Was attending a work event with my daughter. We came in a day early and wanted to stay at the beach as her other event was downtown San Diego. The area and beach was nice. Different may be a better word. The Ocean Beach pier is on the list of things to do in San Diego....

Our stay at OB Hotel was perfect. Shallyn was super friendly at check-in and while they couldn't accommodate our request for third floor right away she offered to move us after the first night when 302 became available. OB Hotel is all about location and room 302 is the best of the best. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony all...

We didn't stay here but the lovely young lady on reception was very friendly and helpful in giving us local information and getting us a taxi. Location is great, right across from the beach and with a pretty courtyard.

I got it into my head that I wanted to spend a few days in San Diego, right on the ocean, and I found Ocean Beach Hotel. It ended up being a wonderful place in a unique, homey neighborhood. My room was oceanfront so had two sliding glass doors to look out directly on Ocean Beach and the Pacific, and...

I've stayed here many times throughout the years and have never been disappointed. Ocean facing rooms are super cool, excellent food within walking distance. Plenty of bars to get a cold drink, I highly recommend staying at this location.

I only stayed one night at Ocean Beach Hotel, but our room was front side, 2nd floor, with windows that opened. It was nice to be able to open the windows and listen to the ocean and all the sounds and to watch the people. Great room with everything you needed. I would stay there again. The courtyard was peaceful.

While visiting our son, who lives in Ocean Beach, we decided to stay at the Ocean Beach Hotel. We didn't know what to expect and were pleasantly surprised to find the hotel located directly across from the beach and a short walk to the long pier (pun intended). Our room was clean and appointed with the necessities, and, although a...
