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

It is right on Ocean Beach, there are tons of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The rooms are small and muggy. The tv was kind of cheap, it had a stand up shower, and a pedestal sink. We did lose power for a while, we left to go eat so I'm not sure how long it took to come... More

Only thing nice was the staff(Shaylin was awesome). We got stuck in the back corner (nw) in a room that was only about 10x10 . Portable ac blowing on us but didn't cool the room. Ac exhaust not even sealed where it goes through the wall. Smelled like mold. Two clean? Pillows and two non-covered ( meaning everyone else's head... More

Typically, we are pretty easy to please. Yes, we read the reviews before booking at the Ocean Beach Hotel, but there are some things you should expect ANY hotel (or even Motel) to provide. Proximity to the ocean is nice and we love being able to walk to nearby food and fun. Where I drew the line was no electricity.... More

If you're a 4 to 5 star type of person, you need to look elsewhere. Yes it is across the beach where the locals and homeless hang out and look through your glass patio door because your curtain don't close all the way and you have to use a hair clip to attach it to the rod. The a/c unit... More

Unbelievable Vacation. Hotel is located across the street from the beach. You are in the middle of everything. Restaurants, Shopping, and Banking all within walking distance. Atrium is an excellent place to sit with snack and a glass of wine. The view is amazing! Watch the sun set on the ocean! The rooms are clean, comfortable, and affordable. We have... More

The best place to let your hair down and relax. Rooms are clean and service is always good. Steps from the beach. Pets are welcome and doggy beach is a short walk north on the beach. There are many things to do and see.
