The view was amazing. Room was clean. Manager let us check in 3 hours early. Close to shopping and restaurants. Free parking made it worth it. Definitely going back to this hotel

Love the location just steps from the Ocean. Room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. This is our second time we have stayed at the Ocean Beach Hotel and it won't be our last time.

Beach right outside your front door

I had never been to this area before. And I have to tell you the truth. When I first got there, I thought, Oh! what have I gotten myself into! But after being there for a little bit I found the people there are incredibly friendly, eclectic and extremely welcoming. I had a blast! I absolutely would go there again! And I didn't even mention, you can watch surfing all day long. What a blast!

Affordable and quaint but could use some tlc

The only problem we had was the door. It was uneven with the frame so we had a lot of outside wind and noise coming in. It was also very rusty and jagged. Other than that the rest of the room was well kept and clean. The beds were also very comfy.

Not Worth the money

In short, I have been in hotels that were a fraction of the cost of this place and they were much more appealing than Ocean Beach Hotel. This place was horrible and ran down. Very big disappointment.

Close to beach

The room was ok, told the staff twice about the portable A/C not working right. Which they didn't do any thing about. The fountain in the court yard was dark green and should have been cleaned weekly.
