I read a lot of the reviews on this hotel, and honestly I became a little worried. However, we were really pleased with our stay and we didn't notice a sign (see other reviews). Anyway, most of the reviews are accurate but let me rundown the pro's and cons. PROs 1) Location, location, location - enjoy beautiful sunsets from your... More

You couldn't ask for a better location. And did I mention the view. Especially every morning watching the sunrise over the ocean from the balcony. Amazing! They also had an amazing beautiful lit courtyard that overlooked the beach as well. There were small restaurants and vintage shops all within walking distance. We were definitely not at the hotel much since... More

I read the many reviews of this hotel, did my homework and it was what I expected. Our room was clean, great maid service every day. You're not gonna get a Marriott 5 star hotel but then again they don't advertise as such. Smack dab on the beach in the heart of the Ocean Beach neighborhood of San Diego, everything... More

Great location, but not exactly what we expected for $200 a night. We had our dogs with us so we had to stay in a first floor courtyard room. It was the smallest room I ever stayed in and I have traveled around the country. You had to turn to the side to get around the bed to go to... More

I recently stayed at Ocean Beach Hotel 7/11-7/14. This was my first trip ever to the Ocean Beach area and I was excited about staying here. I did read reviews on various sites, so I knew going in that the hotel was older. I honestly had no problems with this as I felt the room size and bathrooms were fine.... More

I discovered Ocean Beach, California in 2009. This beach town is a real jewel in San Diego, CA. It is very different then the other beach towns in that it is very ecleptic where people are very non judgemental of who you are & where you come from. It is a community of awesome people, delicious restaurants & great small... More

Across the street from the beach, easy walk to dog beach where you canine friend can romp like crazy, in the middle of ocean beach party zone, a bazillion places to eat and drink within walking distance and even more in a 5 minute drive. And oh yeah, there's a hotel there too. That has rooms and beds and bathrooms... More

We stayed at the Ocean Beach Hotel in a last minute booking. Very friendly and accommodating to us. The room was a little oddly shaped; I got the impression that it was sort of designed to have a separate seating area and they decided a second bed would be more profitable. It made for a pretty small room, functionally. We... More

Don't be surprise when you get inside of the hotel. I read reviews before I book this hotel and I was aware of "small" room size .... Well, it was smaller than what I expected !! The actual size is about 1 bed room ( kid's size ). The Queen size bed takes 50% of the room and they set... More
