4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

The view from our ocean view room was perfect for both people watching and had a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean. There are plenty of places to eat that are within walking distance, and my new favorite coffee spot Newbreak Cafe. A major bonus was on site parking. The rooms are small but very comfortable, though the walls can... More

Great Location, excellent if you have a four legged child. Rooms are simple and clean. Nice little patio and grass area as well. Form your room to the Dog Beach / Ocean is about a 5 minute walk. Manager and staff very nice. Easy to walk to restaurants and shops. Only thing is the hotel should replace their air conditioners.... More

We had a corner room with an amazing view of the beach. Couldn't stay in a better location. Walking distance to everything. Can't wait to be back next month! Room was perfect. I definitely have no complaints. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful! Thank you for a great stay :) Ocean Beach is definitely my kind of place.

Tiny room with no ocean view. You could barely turn around to get into the bed. I didn't see a room service menu. Close proximity to the beach and easy access to eateries within walking distance. Lots of younger people in flipflops. Pretty casual and laid back. Don't expect much. It's just TOO laid back IMO! But there'e a nice... More

The view was beautiful and we enjoyed being close to the ocean but we one problem the noise was to loud, we had problem sleeping because it was to loud, we asked to lower the voice but it remain the same.

Hi Lucy from Arizona - thank you so much for the review. Really happy to hear that you enjoyed the ocean view from the rooms and the centralized location in Ocean Beach. We love being in the heart of OB with the beach being steps away and tons of shops and restaurants being within walking distance. There is one drawback... More

This is an amazing property. You will not find a hotel in OB that offers such an intimate connection to the town/beach as this place does. Not only are you five steps from the beach, but the staff are locals that are more than willing to give you their recommendations and treat you like you're one of them. If you... More

Wow - thank you so much for the amazing review, dmak2015! We are so happy that you got to experience an authentic beach vacation here in Ocean Beach. OB is a special place - a true beach town with a vibe all it's own - stuck somewhere between the 60's and 70's and loving every second of it. Whether we,... More

Yes - 5 stars! What can we say, Drugtaco, other than you're awesome! We are addicted to tacos in Ocean Beach too. Grilled Mahi fish tacos to be exact. South Beach Bar and Grill across the street gives us our fix 3 or 4 times a week - I know, it's bad. Thank you for such a great 5-star review!... More

Only a few steps away from the beach, this is our go-to spot. From the check-in staff to the housekeeping, we couldn't be happier! Located directly across from the boardwalk and just a short walk to the pier, restaurants, and shopping makes this such a convenient hotel. The only thing I would suggest are a few umbrellas over some of... More

Hi Anna! Thanks so much for the awesome review! We are so happy that we are your "go-to spot". The best compliment we can get is when someone chooses to stay here again and again over the years. And as a small boutique hotel, it's really neat to get to know some of our repeat guests that make this their... More

Ocean Beach. The 60s never died. The surfer vibe is strong here. Sand, tattoo parlours, cafés, beach bars. Lobster tacos on the wharf and head shops on the main drag. Ocean Beach is Ocean Beach, man. And if you want to enjoy the Ocean Beach vibe, there is no better place to stay than the Ocean Beach Hotel. Built around... More

Hi LeeJay - thanks for the review! Although we always strive for 5-star reviews here at the OB Hotel, I still love your write-up because it has a sense of style just like OB. As you say, "Ocean Beach is Ocean Beach" - a one-of-a-kind town. One of the greatest things about OB is the bohemian "vibe" that you mention.... More

We have been staying at the OB Hotel for years and have watched them make steady improvements. We love the location and the proximity to the beach and great restaurants. We park our car once we get there and walk wherever we want to go. The hotel environment is quaint and relaxed and we always leave feeling better than when... More
