“Check In and unwind”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

My wife and I just celebrated our 27th anniversary with a 3 night return stay this past weekend. We sincerely love this place. Reasonable rates includes a good breakfast, bikes, beach chairs and towels and a sincere appreciation to have you as their guests. It's quiet and the rooms are basic and clean but what more do you need besides a bathing suit, flip flops, and a change of clothes at sunset? The beds tend to be a bit too firm, but that's a minor complaint. It's a bit of Paradise to us

The ladies who checked us in were very accomodating and thoughtful. The room was small, but after all, one doesn't come to the beach to spend time in the room. The rooftop deck was also a peaceful place to sit and read as well as to enjoy a quiet breakfast. The location was perfect, right near the ferry dock, so that one can check in quickly and get right into the Ocean Beach experience. Beach chairs, bicycles, and towels made it easy to pack light and still be prepared for one's stay. I truly hope that I will have another opportunity to visit.

Room Tip: The south side will eliminate some of the commotion from travelers getting on and off the ferry as w...

We had a great weekend stay. The weather was magnificent which made for a great weekend. The room was clean, very small, no closet. Breakfast was included on a rooftop deck which was a lovely place to hang out not only for breakfast but also at night. I would definitely stay there again. Staff was so nice, welcoming, & helpful.

The owner of the hotel doesn't know what customer service means. She does not keep track of who asks for what because she doesn't use a computer so she gave me a room with two single beds instead of a queen and when I said I paid for a queen she said, "What do you want me to do about it?" Instead of finding another room. She doesn't allow friends in your room either and stands by the door to keep watch of everyone. It's like vacationing with your mother watching over. There were cobwebs in every corner of the room, stains on the carpets and sheets and no one cleans your room between nights. The included breakfast is pieces of toast and fruit and that's it. And if you shower with the bathroom door slightly open the smoke alarm will go off. Overall dump.

A clean, simple option with friendly service and a delicious breakfast. If you are looking for a Hamptons style accommodation, forget it. Does not exist. A pleasant and convenient place for beaches, restaurants, and fun!

I really liked it here, don't know why others gave bad review. Yes, the rooms are small but what do you expect? Every aspect was wonderful: friendly staff, clean rooms, free breakfast, beach chairs, towels and bicycles. Kid free! Close to everything. I would definitely stay there again!

The rooms are small but perfect if you are planning on spending your time at the beach and strolling this awesome area of the world. The beach is gorgeous and the staff here are very helpful. The restaurant Cj's is delicious and close by. The hotel is family oriented and a great cost for what you get. If I can back here I would stay again.
