If you want a great stay, on the beach (ok, across the street) with quiet rooms with some of the most comfortable beds we've slept on, this is your hotel! The staff was very friendly. Plenty of restaurants on the same block. You can walk on the OB Pier, the beach, surf, or just relax and enjoy. A short drive... More

Wow - thank you so much for the fantastic review! You pretty much summed up everything great about being in the heart of Ocean Beach on Newport Avenue. We love it when guests recognize some of our latest upgrades which includes the memory foam toppers on top of new extremely comfortable mattresses. We strive for 5-star service so thank you... More

Had a great time at OB Hotel. Staff was great, love the courtyard at night for some down time after fun in the sun all day. Close to sand, Hodad's and Pizza Port, what else could you want? Don't tell management, but the price was so low it felt like stealing too.

YES! Thanks Felipe! And don't worry I won't tell management about the prices being too low. I also won't tell them that they are insane for guaranteeing that we are the lowest priced beachfront hotel in San Diego and if you find cheaper beach front accommodations we will match it! Ahhh - Hodad's and Pizza Port. I'm not sure it's... More

Unbeatable location on the beachfront, close to the pier, dog beach, shopping and restaurants. The hotel atrium is great for relaxing with a drink and watching the beachfront action. The room was clean and in very good condition, even with being pet-friendly. Fun to watch the characters that make up the beach scene, never felt uncomfortable, though. Would definitely stay... More

Thanks for the awesome review ELP59! It means a great deal to us to receive glowing remarks from TripAdvisor Senior Contributors. Thanks for mentioning our centralized location - we love being in the heart of OB surrounded by restaurants and shops. Once guests park (for free I might add) in our parking lot, there is really no reason to use... More

The OB hotel, located directly on the coolest beach in San Diego was, for the money, unbeatable. It wasn't perfect, but most hotels aren't. If you're looking for a quiet place with spotless room service you might try another hotel in the vicinity. The walls are paper thin and you can hear your neighbors as if they were right next...

Thanks for the great review, Dave. Yes I agree with you that OB is the coolest. Very happy to hear that you enjoyed the courtyard which was recently remodeled so it's really nice to hear from guests that they were able to sit back and relax while watching the waves and people through the big windows.

This place was awesome & I would definitely book there again. It is so near dog friendly restaurants and the beach is just across the strett that you can see from their great courtyard. I have passed the hotel name on to several friends who also travel with dogs.

Thank you so much for your great review, Sharon! Thank you for mentioning how pet-friendly OB is - in fact, San Diego just got ranked as the most pet-friendly city in the country by Forbes Magazine among cities with over a million people. And Ocean Beach, with the original Dog Beach and plenty of pet-friendly restaurants, is a huge part... More

Had a memorable stay there in 2011, and looking forward to going back there this and many more years to come. Hopefully there will be accomodation available as it getting pretty booked up. Balcony view is great.

Thanks for the fantastic review all the way from London, MsG121! We would love to see you again soon - it's been almost 3 years so you are due for another Ocean Beach vacation. You are correct about booking early as the balcony rooms tend to fill up very quickly especially in the summer. The off-season is a great time... More

I was staying in San Diego for one night. I found the hotel online and booked the night in advance. It is in a great location right on Newport street close to bus stops, the pier, the beach, etc. I got around fine on foot. The hotel itself was decent. Don't expect a stay similar to the Marriott or Double... More
