An excellent motel with friendly staff. Rooms were clean, clean, clean! San Francisco Zoo a block away as is the Irish Cultural Center. This will be my go to place in San Francisco! No hesitation whatsoever to recommend.

Like a little slice of heaven with out the frills of a resort. Ocean Park is family owned, clean, organized, friendly staff will help you out in any situation, like drying your wet cloths after your done playing in the rain at the ocean. Close to Georges Deli that has great garlic marinated mushrooms, a great Java Cafe with coffee... More

It hurts to write this review but I feel I must. I based my decision to stay on all the other reviews and was sorely disappointed. The rooms were VERY small, smelled badly and linens smelled worse. It seemed like the owners spent a lot on the exterior but neglected to update the interior. Small changes like ripping out the... More

vicxsf, Owner at Ocean Park Motel, responded to this review

We are glad that Trip Advisor has provided a forum for you, and we apologize for your disappointment. Because this is a vintage motel, each room with one queen bed is 12'x12', so a two-bedroom unit with two queens would have two equally small rooms. If a room with a separate kitchen has not been reserved, or if guests would... More

We stayed for four nights. We had one queen sized bed and one twin for three people. The room was small, but liveable. The "kitchen" was a closet with two shelves, a small refrigerator that froze everything and a microwave. We could hear the Muni until late at night. Very far from the touristy part of SF.

We stayed for 2 nights. The establishment is pretty but that's about it. The room is dim and small and doesnt look that clean. i am sure they could do a lot better by cleaning it thoroughly. The bed is ok and shower is good but overall we dont find it value for money.

Having been to SF many times, I wanted to try something different. Ocean Park motel didn't disappoint. Rooms are small, charming, well kept and clean. We were 3 friends and we had the 2 bedroom apartment. My bed was in a separate room but the other bed had less privacy. It was in the open area when you just come... More

My wife and I stayed here for New Year's, and it was a very good choice. We really like the location (we could hear the ocean), although it may require a car to reach the most touristic part of the city. The rooms are clean, albeit a little small, and their configuration as small apartments is great for family travel.... More

We visit our daughter and her family frequently, and since they live in the Sunset Neighborhood on the western part of the city, this location is perfect for us. But it's not just the location. As our reviewers have indicated, this is a gem not to be skipped. Clean but small rooms, friendly management and staff, and you can't beat... More

This property is really a slice of old San Francisco. Being so close to the beach is a real bonus and the wonderful vintage atmosphere is so much fun. We found it easy to get to downtown and to our appointments in The Haight and the staff were super. A great find if you are touring the area.

I actually looked up Trip Advisor before we went on this trip. There were so many accolades for this hotel and I can say that they are honestly true! When we got there the staff gave us all the information on where to go, eat, explore and have just a great time. The room we got was the room with... More
