“Ask for room 302....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We stayed in an ocean front room on the 3rd floor, and it was great. The views were superb of the beach and the sunsets postcard perfect. The room was very clean, and quite large with a microwave and fridge, king bed and a small couch. We had a balcony with small table and chairs that directly overlooked the show that was the boardwalk.
The pool and hot tub looked nice, tho we didn't use them.
The boardwalk was a nice walk, and the sunset from the nearby pier was magnificent.
The hotel is very close to many restaurants and bars.

Room Tip: Ask for room 302 ... Top floor with unobstructed views.

We were fortunate to get a third floor room at the front overlooking the Pacific.
Absolutely superb view of the sunsets etc. from the rooms balcony.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
Great location for both walks and restaurants.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel are obviously best for the view and to see the ocean.

We stayed for 3 nights in a 3rd floor ocean front view. Not sure what to expect but this place far exceeded our expectations. The view was fantastic and the sound of the waves was SO relaxing. The room was comfortable and very clean but not posh. Microwave and fridge in rooms a plus. Centrally located to bars, restaurants, shops....all within walking distance. We began planning a return trip on our drive home, we'll definitely be back!

We stayed here for 3 nights and couldn't have been happier. Location was excellent....access to the beach was literally steps away! Nice, comfortable rooms/beds, with a friendly and very responsive staff. Definitely a place I would stay again!

The hotel is really just average but the location can't be beat. There are tons of restaurants in the area. You can walk or ride a bike to anything you can need. There are many options to rent bikes or surf boards (and lessons). The hotel is very secure and has great views of the ocean. We vacation in SD at least once a year and usually stay at the OPI. We will be sure to return.

We stayed here for 4 nights last September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a partial view room but the view of the beach was excellent.

The rooms are slightly dated but this doesn't make much difference in h enjoyment factor.

There are a number of bars and restaurants close by and especially enjoyed the quiz at Nick's less than a block away.

On a side note, the bars do not accept anything other than passports for I.D. our driving licences were ok elsewhere but not here.

If we returned to PB then we would definitely stay here again.

My sister and I spent 5 nights in an ocean front 3rd floor room. All of the reviews here are accurate...perfect location with friendly and helpful staff. We went to San Diego to be near the ocean, and this hotel is PERFECT if that's your goal. We didn't rent a car. We took a cab from the airport...the 20 minute ride cost $38. The bus stop is less than a block away if you want to take in the many San Diego attractions. Ride all day for $7! We loved the Ocean Park Inn and hope to return one day. For now we will live vicariously through their newsletters and Facebook posts!

Room Tip: Ocean front is worth the extra money! We were in room 302.
