This is the only hotel we stay at in San Diego. The rooms are wonderful and the employees are phenomenal. This time when we arrived they were going to put us on the second floor. The only way to the second and third floor are the stairs. My hubby had a bad knee and couldn't do the stairs, they changed... More

We stayed for two nights with a room on the third floor facing the ocean. It is a great location for $270 a night with a balcony and free parking. They had no elevator and no one to carry up the luggage. The room had no coffee, no Kleenex, no high definition TV and no wifi. They insisted they had... More

So my wife and I came to OB for a quick weekend getaway. We wanted a room right by the beach, which was a few steps away. We wanted restaurants and bars within walking distance so I wasn't driving intoxicated, which was also steps away. We were also hoping to hear the ocean waves but we were just a tad... More

We have recently installed all new custom made furniture for every room. We feel they are beautiful, functional and help maximize the space in the room. As for the mattresses, they are all newer mattresses with a wonderful 3" memory foam topper. We normally get rave reviews for the comfortability of our beds, however, if you choose to visit us...

We stayed at ocean beach so we could travel with our dogs. Unfortunately they only had a 1 bed 1 bath room left which was very very small. The bed was comfortable, the tv was ok and the room for the most part could use updating. Because of the size of the room I would not stay here again unless... More

Hi Chad! Thanks so much for writing your review. Indeed, our Courtside 1 Queen Bed rooms are on the smaller side although they are our most affordable rooms. As you mentioned, our Patio Rooms are also pet-friendly and much larger in the actual room and also have their own private patios. Also, just recently, we have put in brand new... More

What a pleasant surprise for the four of us visiting San Diego! Accommodations were very nice and across the street from the beach and pier! It was very seventies in decor but a little gem! Many restaurants and bars all within walking distance! Will be going back!!

This was one of our all time favorite places to stay. We stayed in the king suite, 2nd floor corner room many times over the years. We always brought our dog with us and there was never any problem. Well, the current owner said no way, no how can we stay in that suite with our dog this year. Mind... More

Dear Guest, We apologize for any confusion. Ever since we purchased the property in 2002 we have allowed pets on only our first floor. These rooms are better suited as pet-friendly rooms with their tiled flooring and private patios. We hate to lose anyone as a guest! I will sit down with our entire team and discuss whether opening the... More

I loved this hotel, and it was perfect for our needs. We had a king suite on the third floor, and it was lovely. Everything looked stylish and brand new. The beach views were fabulous...with three large sliding glass doors that offered floor to ceiling views. During the day/afternoon it was not noisy at all. There was a little noise... More

The location can't be beat! Right across from the street to the beach and pier! The courtyard was wonderful for that afternoon glass of wine or cocktail - with a view! The staff was extremely helpful and congenial...helped everyway they could. However, for the price, the room and bathroom were extremely small (though VERY clean!). If you are looking for... More

Thank you for the information. Unfortunately, the rooms are small, however, we have recently purchased all new furnishings in hopes that the scale of furnishings will help give a more airy feel. More

I'm baffled by the many four star reviews. I stayed over Memorial Day weekend, so I didn't get the "reasonable prices" other reviewers are referencing. This place is all LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION and nothing else. The manager was nice enough and granted me a late check out, but other than that-- this hotel is very dumpy, everything worn and moldy.... More
