I first booked this property because they take dogs and the price was great. We will go back for the ambience, the history, the terrific owners, and the hot tub. This gem is a treasure. We go to SF for the Park and this is very easy access to it. It is a step back in time with the comforts... More

We stayed here for the first time in January 2012. I found the place by accident because I was looking for hotels in San Francisco on an online site and someone happened to mention this place in their review of another. What a find! This place is 'old school' a family owned place that only accepts reservations over the phone.... More

We had a great weekend at the Ocean Park Motel in San Francisco. The location for this place can't be beat. Let me repeat: CAN'T BE BEAT. This hotel is one short block from the San Francisco Zoo, and the beach. The muni picks up right on the corner. Perfect location. The management at this motel actually cares about you.... More

We stayed at the Ocean Park Motel in early November 2011. We are a family with younger kids vacationing in SF for a week. The Ocean Park Motel was a great option for us. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: --Clean, safe, and ample parking. --Our room had a fully functioning kitchen (not sure if they all do), but... More

We stayed for two nights in a suite with three double beds and a tiny bathroom, with a fridge and microwave. We wanted to stay longer but the motel was full! I think the cost was $165 per night including tax. The architecture is really cute, decorated in purples and blues outside, and the staff very friendly - even before... More

Good if you want to experience the art deco of yesterday. Very convenient to the beach. They do allow dogs. They have a hot tub but we were not interested in a public hot tub in San Francisco. There is no a/c and the heat is tricky to operate. They open the windows after they clean, so if you come... More

It was a great stay. The motel had a wonderful period charm, it was quiet, clean and felt very safe. The room wasn't posh and the bathroom was small by modern standards but it was clean and comfortable. It was close to the beach, which was great for an evening walk. The management was very relaxed and friendly. Parking was... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. First, it's seriously cute. Second, it's close to important stuff. Like the L -- which got me across town, no problem. Also it's close to the zoo and the beach. I was thrilled to be able to get up and go for a walk first thing in the morning. Third, the rooms are... More

We stayed here for three nights in September. It's one of the oldest motels in town, so yes, you can tell by looking at the interior of the building. But everything was clean and we felt very safe. Staff was very nice, supportive and accommodating. There were enough parking spaces for free and the L train right at our door... More

We stayed at the Ocean Park Motel for the second time in a year (the other trip was for my birthday and this trip was for my husband's birthday) and oddly enough we had the same room each time. It's a relaxing stay close to the San Francisco water and the zoo (which we visited each time we were there).... More
