This hotel has some good attributes but also some that need work. The good: Nice location near the beach, very clean, pretty courtyard, plenty of free parking, large refrigerator in the room, new flooring and shower/tiling. The bad: Terrible (very, very slow) wifi even though there were 3 networks, door would not lock when leaving (see more on this below),... More

We stayed for the Christmas Parade 2015! Right in the heart of it all is OB Hotel. Location is definitely 5 stars. View is the same. Management was nice but amenities and room accommodations plain. Bathroom was so tiny you can brush your teeth and flush the lieu at the same time! The courtyard and ambiance were the catch all... More

If you are someone who expects a Marriott stay for a budget price you don't want to stay here. But if you're someone who appreciates a hotel with clean rooms, nice facilities and helpful staff at a great price then this is your place. The patio is really a nice place to chill with a drink while you plan your... More

My wife and me stayed at the Ocean Beach Hotel the night of Sunday October 25, 2015. My wife had pre-paid for the room through an agency. When we arrived to check in, my wife discovered she left her driver's license at home. Because she had no identification, we were not allowed to check into the room. I then used... More

Lovely hotel with neat garden in the middle. Friendly and helpful staff (maybe except one lady that seemed to have lost her smile on way to work). No breakfast, but we bought our own food to have in the fridge in the room. Quiet rooms. The beach just infront of the hotel seemed a bit dirty, and a bunch of... More

No frills hotel, great location, walking distance to restaurants, bars. Located right across the street from the beach. Request a room facing the ocean, great ocean breeze come through the French doors. Hoodads restaurant is a couple blocks from hotel, it was featured on Diners, Drive ins and Dives. Don't let the look of the hotel sway you from a... More

The hotel room was small but clean and tidy, They allow smoking on all the balconies and in the center courtyard. We had a room on the second floor. The people next door and below were smoking marijuana and the odor came into our room. There is a large homeless population that stays across the street. They were doing drugs,... More

We had a great stay here!! The beach was walking distance. We enjoyed the small breakfast. We were close to restaurants as well. The room was clean and well maintained. I traveled with my two daughters, 6 and 8, and we all had a blast!

Hotel was very good. Small, cozy, and very nice personnel. I liked that the beach is dog friendly, and it has breathtaking sunsets! :) But, the beach area is full of homeless, smokers, and drunk people. My husband and I didn't feel secure walking around the beach and ended up going to another beach. It is a shame because the... More
