I booked the Ocean beach Hotel not knowing what to expect. First of all my plane from San Francisco came in early and I got to the Ocean Beach Hotel two hours before I was supposed to be allowed take the room. I did the credit card stuff and then said, I'm a couple of hours early for my room...

I visited my son and stayed here. If you are looking for a great place to people watch and see the ocean this is the place. It is a older hotel but very well maintained, located across the street from the beach and some great restaurants within walking distance.

I came here on a pleasure trip and was attracted by the "balcony overlooking Pacific Ocean" plus top location but was badly let down. BAD Ocean view was actually view of parking lot. (See pic) The location was not very nice and there is no way that I would venture out after dark with angry groups of youths damaging cars...

Thank you for your feedback Bertybign - we are so sorry that you did not have a top-notch beach vacation which is what we strive to provide all of our guests. I'm happy to hear that at least your experience with our front desk staff was an enjoyable one. As of today, we are over half-way done renovating every bathroom...

Inexpensive hotel right next to the beach. Bare bones as far as room amenities and no pool/hot tub/fitness center. We did not give a darn about any of these things. We wanted to stay next to the beach and experience a more local vibe. This filled that need. If you wants fancy and frill, don't stay here. Beds were super...

If you are looking for a 5-star hotel, this is not for you. This quaint hotel is located right across the street from Ocean Beach and Ocean Beach Pier. There are tons of restaurants and loads of shopping within walking distance. The rooms are kept extremely clean and the staff is friendly. I can't say anything bad about this hotel....

Chose this hotel for the convenience of the ocean. Excellent location. They also welcome dogs. Very comfortable beds, but the room was so small and the bathroom had no counter or outlet for the hair dryer. The neighborhood was a bit eclectic. My dog discovered someone sleeping under a tarp on the beach!

Location says everything! Across the street from the beach, and only a few minutes walk to the fishing pier. Also, right on the main street of Ocean Beach with plenty of restaurants, bars and shopping. The room was fairly small but clean with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was very small, no tub but it did have a nice walk...
