I couldn't have been happier with my stay at this gorgeous gem in Sunset. Location is excellent -- 2 blocks from the beach!!! The staff are kind and gentle and always ALWAYS accommodating. They were so sweet to my kids and to my husband and I. I was going through a health issue and this time spent at the hotel was our little slice of paradise. I am so happy to have found it, and will stay there again whenever I visit SF. I'm hesitant to write this because I want to guard this little magical secret for myself! Thank you to Mark and the rest of the staff (the ladies who cleaned my room were also SO wonderful) for such a magical stay.

The property’s 24 retro-style rooms have cedar paneling behind the beds and bedspreads with pale pink and white stripes. Larger rooms have kitchenettes with stoves and refrigerators; some of the kitchen fixtures are rusted, but rooms are generally clean. All have flat-screen TVs and coffeemakers. Rooms facing the street come with earplugs to lessen the noise of the outside trams, cars, and busses. The pastel-colored bathrooms have original tiles and curtained stall showers. Enjoyed my stay here , loved how clean and tidy it was and how it accommodated for the family definitely will be back.

This place is a little secret. It is the first motel built in San Francisco. Chester, who will welcome you at the desk, is a font of information. The rooms are not large, but they are quite comfortable, and reflect the art deco character of the motel. We were in room 6, a first level room, with no rooms above. It had a full kitchenette, a nice shower, no bathtub. It’s in a great location, because it is close to the L Taraval tram which takes you right downtown, and the 18 bus which also conveniently delivers you well up into the city. The Java Beach Café, for a tasty breakfast and lunch, is just a few steps away.

It was nice to get a different perspective of San Francisco by staying in the Outer Sunset area. The San Francisco Zoo and Ocean Beach are within walking distance and close to several great restaurants. The hotel property takes you back to an era gone by with common courtyards and an outside hot tube. Some of the rooms have kitchenettes, the room I stayed in was small but very clean and comfy with an aura of history. Love the art Deco vibe and the neon sign outside the office, very retro and very cool! Great customer service at an affordable price and easy access to downtown SF as public transportation runs next to the hotel, what a way to experience San Francisco from a locals perspective! What an amazing experience and I want to thank the entire Ocean Park Motel Team for sharing your LOVE and hospitality and making a difference in my life I am very grateful and thankful!

What a treat to stay at Ocean Park Motel in the Outer Sunset. Art deco decor has been lovingly updated and yet preserved. We enjoyed our kitchen unit in addition to being able to walk to numerous casual dining spots. Cross 2 streets to walk on the beach or stroll along the walking path. A wonderful San Francisco experience!
