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

I would describe the Ocean Beach area and this hotel as grungy and hipster. I read the reviews before I booked with this hotel and knew that it wasn't a five-star hotel. But there are certain things you expect from a hotel...such as A/C and electricity...especially during the hottest months of the year. The rooms are small and muggy. The... More

A few step from Ocean beach ! We really enjoyed the patio. Good place for partygoer. Clean and cute. Lack of facilities (coffee maker, poor wifi, poor AC) considering the price. The street can be pretty noisy at night. Go elsewhere if you don't plan to spend some time on the beach while in San Diego. If you do and... More
