We just returned from staying a few nights at this location. The rooms are small but clean. You really don't need much when you're so close to the beach. The hotel has beautiful vies of the ocean and is walking distance to all the Ocean Beach shops and restaurants. Being able to walk everywhere and have a couple drinks and... More

Wonderful! We spent 2 nights in beach view room. Exceptionally clean. Room on the smallish side. Would have loved a coffee maker. Wednesday evening there was a wonderful Farmer's Market up the street. Hated to leave!

My daughter and I stayed at the Ocean Beach Hotel. The rooms were small but clean and cozy. The courtyard was a wonderful place to read and have my morning coffee. It is directly across the street from the ocean so we did not have to go far to enjoy the beach. The staff was hard working and very accommodating.... More

I see a lot of people on here complaining about the cleanliness of this hotel. These are the type of people you just can't please. Yes, this hotel could use a little renovation because it is old. BUT, It is in no way dirty, just old and worn. I don't know about you, but I don't take trips to stay... More

Our family of four and the 40lb dog stayed over spring break. The hotel was very charming and we all loved the courtyard. It was so relaxing with the fountain and the waves crashing and the fresh air. It is very conveniently located just across the street from the beach which was what we were looking for. I didn't want... More

Stayed here for 3 days with a small dog. #1 reason was proximity to dog beach (and because 2nd choice, Ocean Villa Inn, was sold out.) Had a double room, with patio. This was nice to have with the dog. It was a walled patio, but that was ok, as that side of hotel looked onto street, with many passersbys.... More

It is a nice place, clean rooms, comfortable beds and pleasant, helpful staff with a beautiful patio with fountain and multiple tables. It is located just across street from the beach and pier with shopping and restaurants within walking distance as well. There's a great vibe in the ocean beach area, a place Id like to visit again.

My husband and I stayed here again last month. Like the previous times, everything was great! Rooms are clean, comfy and cozy. Very friendly and helpful staff. The location is ideal. The balcony views are beautiful. I'd love to stay in the King Suite one day, but it's either been booked when we've gone, or out of our price range... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. I wanted to find somewhere to stay with my teen girls ON the beach. BUT, the rooms are small, the walls are paper thin, there was NO phone in my room to call the front desk for help with my over-flowing toilet, and the extremely LOUD guests that partied all night...
