This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel and I still love it! Just walk across a small road to access Ocean Beach! There is a wonderful atmosphere here. On Newport road there are a lot of shops and restarants to check out. The people here are down to earth and nice also. There are a few homeless... More

First off This is a very laid back area T-shirts, shorts and floppys is all you will need. This is not a five star resort, but it is a five star view. Rooms at the front can not be beat for view or sleeping to the sound of the waves with your doors open as we did. We stayed during... More

This is a mom and pop hotel steps from the beach and to local bars and restaurants. Rooms are small but immaculate; beds are amazing. I did not have a noise problem, but I am a heavy sleeper. The location far outweighs any negatives! Get a room on the third floor to wake up to beautiful views of the ocean!

After much searching for a hotel in San Diego, I decided on this one because the rate was better than most of the "resorts" and the proximity to the beach was too good to pass up. After reading TripAdvisor reviews, I contacted the hotel directly to find out what room would be best to select so I could have some... More

I normally don't stay places that aren't very well rated on Trip Advisor. However, I had heard that the OB Hotel has been upgraded and it was a decent place to stay now. The price wasn't bad for the area so I went for it. The location can't be beat. The beach is 30 feet away, and it's on the... More

The "hotel" is located right at the beach, it is more a badly-soundproofed motel-furnished room, but as the locations overrules everything ,it is worth a stay! easy going neighborhood with some nice surfer bars "roof-top" bars.

I have stayed at the Ocean Beach Hotel several times and each time it never fails to amaze me. We had front row seats to Octoberfest. I just went outside and could experience the great concerts. And of the course the beach is across the street and the staff is professional and very helpful. We are going back again in... More

First off, let me just state that I do not consider myself a picky or to be a high maintenance person. I live in the country so I can accept and appreciate many meager and average accommodations... but none the less, here is my review. I placed my reservation through Priceline and was delighted with the amazing location of this... More
