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.

You are so close to the beach (across the street) that you can literally roll out of bed and join the many surfers out at Ocean Beach hanging ten. The last time we were in San Diego we stayed at the Pacific Terrace Hotel in Pacific Beach. While that hotel was fabulous, our budget this year couldn't accommodate the room... More

This is the perfect spot for a beach vacation. We stayed in the balcony with ocean view room, which I highly recommend. The staff, Shailyn & Esther, were always helpful and friendly. The beach is literally steps away! There are so many places to eat and shop within walking distance, we never had to drive. The people there are friendly,... More

Nice boutique hotel if you want to stay on the beach and within walking distance of numerous restaurants. Rooms are small but clean. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Parking is underground and secured. A bit pricey.

Nice hotel if you are looking to stay directly on the beach. The beach is literally 10 feet away. Rooms are tiny, but clean. We had an ocean view suite, but I wouldn't pay the extra money for it next time. We were rarely in the hotel, and if you want an ocean view, just walk right outside the hotel.

Went on honeymoon and stayed in semi decent hotels for two weeks paying $150 a night or so and had a great time generally. Until that is we decided to spend a day at the beach. We looked up San Diego (a 1.5 hour drive form where we were) and found this hotel on the beach. Yes it was the... More

We came to San Diego to visit the beach as part of our two week honeymoon in California. We found this hotel through hand online booking agent and it wasn't cheap, in fact it was one of the most expensive hotels we stayed in, and compared to those other hotel, the Ocean Beach Hotel is a overpriced, poor quality establishment....
