Stayed at the Ocean Beach Cottages for 3 nights in early March. They are located in a great location and RIGHT on the Beach. I had a small one bedroom room, but it was larger than I anticipated after reading the reviews, and there was a small refridgerator and microwave in the room. My room was clean and the staff...

The two staff members were very nice...however, once I saw the cottages I had to ask for a refund. My advice is to keep looking for a hotel. I was only in the cottage for about 30 seconds but this was 30 seconds too long.

We stayed at Ocean Beach Cottages during September 2008, the cottages are located in a quiet area of Ocean Beach and are about a 4 minute walk to the beach. The cottages themselves are a little bit dated but are clean and have everything you need. It felt like your home away from home. We had a fantastic time, they...

My stay in this place was one of the most disgusting, horrible experiences of my life. My husband and I love Ocean Beach. We understand that it is a funky, hippie community. So we were super excited when we found the cottages right near the beach! We planned a long, much needed weekend getaway and were truly disappointed with our...

When we checked in everything seemed fine. We went to our room and it was the usual motel style: old drapes and polyester comforter. Now lets talk about the bathroom: no hairdryer provided so bring your own, there isnt a real shower liner so all that there is was a shower curtain, the tub bottom looked like it was dirty...

Me and my family stayed at the beach cottages and it was wonderful my kids loved it.... they felt right at home ... The atmosphere was very welcoming and cozy,. It is a block and a half away from the beach ... I suggest that if you are an uptight person or just not the relaxed then this is not...

OK, let's get real for a minute. The bad reviews on this site have missed two crucial points. 1. You have selected this property to SAVE money. When you save cash on the rent, you pay in other areas. 2. This is a beach community. Most of these areas in California are full of twenty something surfers that are looking...

I wasn't sure what to think after reading all the varied reviews. Once we got there, everything was really great. The cottages are in a great location, about 3 blocks in from Ocean Beach and they're so much better than a "sterile" hotel room. They're not the fanciest, the cottages are little houses in a surfing neighborhood. But they're so...

The rooms are clean, nothing fancy, but the view is worth every dollar.. The hotel sets on the beach with nothing but ocean and beach from the deck. The rooms are not the most updated, but you have access to use of grills, picnic tables and beach at your front door. Ask for second floor room to get a good...

I stayed at the Ocean Beach Cottages, unit #7, on the nights of January 8 and 9, 2004. I was booked to stay a 3rd night, but cut my stay short and checked into another hotel. I was very disappointed with my stay. I travel extensively both nationally and internationally and have fairly modest standards for accommodations, but I found...
