Unfortunately the negatives about Oceanview Motel are all within the control of the employees. Doors and woodwork are dirty and the reception ares, complete with thick glass and a bank kind of sliding drawer, all set the stage for a seedy Motel. The ice machine looks positively disgusting. The bathroom was clean and so were the sheets. The beds were... More

Price was decent (for SF), there was parking (first come, first serve), the linens were clean, great location. There was street noise from the Muni, it is not a 4 star hotel and could use some upgrades/replacements. Not a warm, fuzzy greeting or feel to the place, but frankly, I'm only at a hotel to sleep and it worked just... More

On the plus, location, location, location. On the beach, at the end of the N line. Great access to everything we needed. On the minus, security and up keep. Hollow core wood doors I would only use for a closet, with broken security bolts, are the only thing between you and the world. The bathroom has quite a bit of... More

Like an earlier reviewer, I think I'm finally done with the Oceanview. We've stayed there a dozen times over the last 6 years, but I'm not going back. We booked a week in a queen suite while my husband was in San Francisco for surgery. When we checked in they sent us to a tiny, dark, dirty back room with... More

Made the mistake of staying at the Oceanview once, I will never stay there again! People were up yelling and screaming and ranting and raving all night long! We went out for dinner came back to find all the parking stalls in the motel were taken! As it turns out all the parking stalls were taking by partygoers on the... More

My father was in the hospital and it was the nearest place to stay....it was terrible!! There were 4 of us and we all woke up covered in bed big bites!! I would not recommend it. It was very dirty, our heater didn't work so we were freezing...not a great experience.

The Ocean View Motel at 4340 Judah in San Francisco is an older motel with free parking and good prices. It does need some sprucing up, but there are NO BED BUGS, get over it, There is also a friendly staff to assist you...This motel is right at the beach in Outer Sunset. The N Judah Streetcar takes you right... More

We stayed 2 nights here, I wish we hadn't. Before you even get to the room you are presented with a poor reception area, awful stair case to the rooms. The bedroom had a light missing, bare wires, mouldy bathroom ceiling, lampshade soaked in coffee. Although the tram outside is incredibly handy its also incredibly noisy and runs all night.... More

We recently spent 2 nights at this San Francisco location. It was the first time we stayed in the Sunset area which turned out to be a good choice. The property is situated a few minutes walk from the beach and around 10 minutes walk from the Golden Gate Park. It is also on the bus route providing easy and... More
