“Ocean Park Inn--fantastic place on Pacific Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Our family had a front row seat at the Ocean Park Inn Hotel on San Diego's Pacific Beach. The rooms and service are comfortable, clean and friendly and the location can't be beat. You're right in the middle of great beaches, boardwalk, restaurants, night-life. I'd stay there again, for sure! Steve from Sammamish, WA

I wanted to stay at a hotel near Crystal Pier where I used to spend my summers as a teenager and I found the perfect hotel at Ocean Park Inn. I spent 2 weeks there in room 220; partial view of the beach. I saved a lot of money by choosing the partial view and it was just fine with me. The room was very comfortable. I stocked the fridge with just enough so I could make my own sandwiches and saved money on food that way. The hotel gives you breakfast for free. I had a microwave too. The bathroom had plenty of counter space for all my stuff. There was a gate right out to the beach boardwalk that you can use your key with to come in or out and also beach chairs and those little body boards to use on the beach and beach towels too. The staff are very nice and friendly and helpful. My room was very quiet. The "partial view" of the beach was from the room's little balcony with a small table and 2 chairs, very pleasant. Nice pool and jacuzzi area. I loved it and would stay there again.

Stayed July 2013, traveled solo

I've stayed at quite a few hotels in my days and this was so far the best ocean front. Easy vehicle access. (Not stuck valet only) they have a pool as well. Free breakfast. Very friendly staff. Just a great experience.

My wife and I had a great time. Our ocean view was excellent and we had easy access to the boardwalk and the beach from the hotel. All the restaurants were within walking distance and close by. I read some people were complaining about noise from the area night clubs. We had no issues with them. Also read complaints about transients. Transients are everywhere if you look for them. Again we had no issues. They kept to themselves. I would recommend this hotel and we plan on staying there again.

Breath-taking views of the pier, pool, and ocean! Unbelievable! So relaxing, hotel staff was great and helpful at the front desk. They are so laid back here and relaxed! San Diego is so beautiful! This hotel was far better than what we thought, never had to leave. Bars, restaurants surround the hotel. Central location in Pacific Beach, everyone knows this hotel because of its location by everything. One block from Kono's Beach Cafe which is a must visit for breakfast! Eat out by the water and theyll bring your food to you! Line out the door the whole time they are open but worth it. Beach rentals one block away, bikes, chairs, umbrellas etc which we used on both beach days we had! Would not stay anywhere else in Pacific Beach, pool was amazing too! Drank here at the pool as they are very strict her with alcohol on the beach, saw several tickets being given by cops. They dont care if youre from out of town either. Easy though cause we just walked back and forth from beach to pool all day, no worries. Stay here! the extra money is worth it!

Room Tip: Room 311 period! If you have a group of 4+ going like we did. This is a junior suite, pull out bed...

We love the location, staff and views. Every year we escape the heat of Phoenix and spend 4 nights in an Ocean View balcony room at Ocean Park Inn. Once we arrive we park the car and walk to shops, dining and it's great having the beach at your front door. The continental breakfast included has enough variety to satisfy us until dinner. The location is great, you can walk to the Green Flash, the Firehouse and World Famous restaurants. Also to the pier and watch the fishing. The staff is friendly and efficient, they even remembered us from last year. The pool is nice. We saw dolphins in the ocean. The only downside may be a long corrider to your room, if there is a walking issue mention you would like to be close to the elevator upon check in. The hotel is non smoking which is great. Fresh fruit is available in the lobby 24/7. Our room had a Mini fridge , close enough to walk to Starbucks, Ralphs grocery and CVS pharmacy. If you forget anything the CVS has a great variety of beach items and beer. It's very nice and we love going there. Bike rentals nearby. We could get cheaper hotels off the beach but that's why we visit San Diego, for the ocean to just watch, listen and relax.

Room Tip: North Side quieter. South side faces a bar. If have walking issues make sure you're room is nea...
