“Would recommend and surely stay there again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

We stayed there three nights and We Only have positive things to say about the Hotel. It is nice located, value for Money and clean and with mid sized rooms. We were upgraded to partial sea view at arrival by a really frindly guy called Patrick. In General the staff were really friendly and helpfull. As We stayed there during thanksgiving the staff had made a list of open restaurants in the nabourhood. The friendly staff made ud feel Welcome, thanks for that.
The pool is heated and open until 10. Breakfast is freshly made waffles, bread, cereal and fruits. The coffee is a bit thin however. Parking is possible at a fee.

Had a weekend getaway at a fantastic hotel. I checked in late and was very tired from the drive, originally only booking a King Suite. But the staff there bumped me up to an ocean front room for free, just to make sure my girlfriend and I would get a quiet room and some rest. Really appreciate the service and room! Would definitely recommend!

Perfect location if you plan on walking everywhere. Hotel is next to everything, stores, restaurants, bars, clubs, nightlife, and it's right on the beach. Just your basic clean room. Friendly staff. If you plan on going out and being outside a majority of your stay, this place is perfect. Decent waves if u want to surf 2.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in October, 2012 as part of a group of 19. The whole group enjoyed the hotel - it was very clean and in an awesome location. We were happy that we could walk to so many restaurants and wake up next to the beach each morning. The complementary breakfast was great and very convenient when you have a large group.

The front desk manager, Mat, was wonderful to deal with during the booking process. During our stay, Mat and the rest of the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. They provided assistance with getting cabs, directions, and restaurant reservations.

Our room was always cleaned well and we were never inconvenienced by having had to wait for our room to be cleaned.

The hotel is great value for your money.

We stayed at the Ocean Park Inn as a weekend getaway for our one year anniversary. We had an oceanfront room on the second floor and couldn't have been happier with the location. We sat out on our balcony with a cup of coffee in the morning and glass of wine at night, just listening to the waves crashing on the shore. There's lots to do with bars, restaurants, and shops all within walking distance. Every morning we went for a walk over to Woody's Breakfast and Burgers and had a great breakfast right on the boardwalk

The hotel was very nice. We had a great view of the beach, and sitting out for sunset on the balcony was amazing. The rooms are kept clean and nice, the staff is friendly and quick to answer questions about the area, and the option to take boogie boards to the ocean supplied by the hotel, followed up with a quick outdoor shower and a hot tub is so nice. If you area headed to this area of california, I would highly recomend it.

Room Tip: Book a little early and get a 3rd floor room with a full ocean view. It's so nice to just sit ou...

I have stayed here several times now and will continue coming back. If you are looking for a Pacific Beach experience, this location is perfect. This trip was for business, so I had to drive downtown and back every day. It took less than 30 minutes to get to the heart of downtown at rush hour. Very quick trip to the airport as well.
This is not a quiet, idyllic beach area. Instead you will find a bustling beachfront. Constant activity, walking, biking, skateboards and more. Rent a cruiser bike and take off. Miles of easy riding. Cross the street and ride on the bay, a completely different scene.
Tha parking garage is well worth the $10 day fee. Hassle free indoor parking. The front desk staff is always willing to help. Even the accountants stepped up when I was checking out to lend a hand. Many are from the area and have good local knowledge.
Try to get an Ocean Front room and take advangtage of the small patio overlooking the boardwalk. Endless people watching and best view of the sunset.
I hope to get back there soon.

Room Tip: Beach Front
