My wife and I stayed here in 2008 while traveling with friends, and this time we were traveling with our daughter. We enjoyed the OPM so much the first time, with its convenient access to the MUNI (L train) system and close proximity to the beach, we decided to stay here again. Mark and his staff take pride in the... More

We stayed here for a week and chose Ocean Park because we had been here before and knew what to expect. I like the quaint decor and I appreciate the history of the place. But it's time for some upgrades. Heat is tough to regulate, room was very tiny. We wanted so save on our expenses so we did not... More

This is a quaint little place near the ocean and across the street from the zoo. Don't let the price scare you cuz others are waaaaayyyy more pricey. It's quiet, easy to get to, clean and close to Cliff House. Since you shouldn't be in your room a lot anyway, this will work out great. I recommend it!

If you need a motel in Southwestern San Francisco near the Zoo, the Ocean Park is excellent. Established in 1936 and the first motel in San Francisco, the Ocean Park was built in the Art Deco style to resemble the great ocean cruise liners are the 1930s. It is beautiful and the owners have made it a nice place to... More

Ended up at this hotel on a family trip to SF because everything was booked due to a conference. So glad. Called and spoke to nice man who recommended a room that had two bedrooms. Very affordable for SF with free parking, TV, coffee, fridge, Wi-Fi. They even have a little play set for the kids in the yard area.... More

This is a very interesting place that some people will love and some people will hate. It's a retro motel in a really funky part of San Francisco. It is 2 blocks from the Pacific and you feel like you are in another world. We only stayed for one night. I had wanted a room with one bed and when... More

Circa 1939 decor was unique and welcoming. Location to transportation was excellent. The room was a double queen and very clean. Kitchenette was small along with the shower/bathroom. The owners were very courteous and made sure your needs were met on all levels. Decor was original and suitable for the 1930s and 40s, however, if you are looking for a... More
