Stayed here three nights. Overall, not a bad place to stay, but not as good as expected. Decent room, adequate continental breakfast, friendly staff. But really lumpy pillows, inadequate lighting in the room, and spotty maid service. Also, room thermostat not working. All in all, an average place that could score higher if they put in a bit more effort.

We stayed at the Ocean Park Inn on pacific beach with our two teenage girls. The hotel is steps away from the beach, bars, and restaurants. Our girls loved the beach vibe and the fact they could walk a short distance to shop. The hotel had a good breakfast and the staff was friendly. The pool, hot tub, and general... More

We took a short trip to San Diego in May 2014 after we've heard great reviews about the city and it's weather. We spent 2 nights in Carlsbad and 2 nights in SD. We came across a good deal on Groupon for the Ocean Park Inn and booked an ocean view room. We could not have asked for a better... More

This was our third time staying here. The staff is always so accommodating and welcoming when we arrive and throughout our stay. Location couldn't be better. We love this place. Literally, steps from the sand. We will be back again and again!

Stayed at the OPI during Spring Break March '15. This hotel is right on Pacific Beach and is in the heart of all the action. LOts of close by restaurants and drinking available within walking distance. The rooms could use some updating and the hallways definitely need some sprucing up. Our room had a nicely updated bathroom with large walk... More

No working elevator was quite a pain. It was obvious that it had been inoperable for several months. I would have switched to ground level, but did not want to loose the view. Ideally the elevator should be operational due to the American Disabilities Act, but management could have inquired if this was acceptable upon making the reservation. The inn... More

We only got to stay here for one night. I had requested an early check in but unfortunately a room wasn't ready for us. So we went to the zoo and after a long day at the zoo it was nice coming back here and relaxing and going for a walk on the boardwalk and a stroll on the beach.... More

I have stayed here several times over the years through changes of management as well as changes in the area. You can save some dough by staying at other hotels a few blocks from the beach but with the right room this place is great. Insist on a ocean facing room. It remains a very good value and is on...

Upon arrival we were greeted with a warm friendly hello. The room was clean and the "partial" view was spectacular. Each evening we witnessed nature at it's finest with a gorgeous sunset. Each morning we woke to the sound of the ocean and surfers trying to tackle the waves. The Ocean Park Inn is a beautiful boutique hotel with underground... More

My wife and I spent two nights here. March 6-8th. We had room 313. The view was amazing, we really enjoyed the sunsets both nights. The hotel is very clean and smells good. Plenty to do in walking distance. We will definitely return to this hotel.
