If you are looking for a 5-star hotel, this is not for you. This quaint hotel is located right across the street from Ocean Beach and Ocean Beach Pier. There are tons of restaurants and loads of shopping within walking distance. The rooms are kept extremely clean and the staff is friendly. I can't say anything bad about this hotel.... More

Chose this hotel for the convenience of the ocean. Excellent location. They also welcome dogs. Very comfortable beds, but the room was so small and the bathroom had no counter or outlet for the hair dryer. The neighborhood was a bit eclectic. My dog discovered someone sleeping under a tarp on the beach!

Location says everything! Across the street from the beach, and only a few minutes walk to the fishing pier. Also, right on the main street of Ocean Beach with plenty of restaurants, bars and shopping. The room was fairly small but clean with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was very small, no tub but it did have a nice walk... 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

We are sorry you were unhappy with the amenities we provide. We do our best to keep costs reasonable while providing a fun, relaxed beach experience for our guests. We recently had our tankless water heater replaced which should alleviate any hot/cold issues. We are also investing money in improving our wifi signal. We hope that you will give us... 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...
