“Great B&B near the Ocean and Golden Gate Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

The B&B is wonderfully located close to Golden Gate Park, the Ocean, Cliff House, and just blocks from public transportation. We did have a rental car and did not have any issues with parking. We used buses for a few days to get into and around the city - it was pretty easy! Joanne is a gracious host and provides a great variety for breakfast. We had a suite which had 2 adjoining rooms and a private bath for a very reasonable rate. The rooms had an Ocean View. It was a wonderful stay and a very homey place to come back to after a long day exploring the city! Thank you Joanne!

My wife and I stayed in late October our hostess and accommodations were wonderful. We particularly loved our room with the view of the ocean.
Public transportation is very accessible, but if you have a car the parking can be a challenge.

This is perfect place for a romantic getaway. I took my wife there for her surprise b-day gift. The host was wonderful and the Ocean View Room is awesome with great views of the ocean. Looking forward staying here again in the future.

Room Tip: Either room is good but if you want the View of the Ocean, take the Ocean View Room which also has a...

The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood, an easy walk from the bus line. We parked our car on the street for free (more about that later) and took the bus everywhere, which was easy and convenient.
The decor is victorian, and is a beautiful collection of historical pieces, including some portraits of Joanne's ancestors. We took advantage of Joanne's selection of guide books and historical books about the area, and one evening we enjoyed one of her SF-related movies on the VCR that was available in our room.
Each morning, Joanne left out a wide array of breakfast foods, including homemade granola and some delicious pastries. In most B&Bs, the host cooks breakfast, but this was a fine way to do it, and allowed us total flexibility in what we ate and when we had breakfast.
Our only problem was that apparently we received a parking ticket while parked on the street, due to street cleaning. We did not see any ticket, but were informed by the SF authorities a few months later, and by that time they had added late fees. The rental car company also added its own fee, so the parking actually ended up costing us $150. It would have been very helpful if the B&B had provided information and warnings about the street cleaning, so we could have moved our car to the other side of the street.

If you are in San Francisco, consider to stay in this Bed and Breakfast. Close to the Ocean in a nice neighbourhood. Joanne is a very nice host. The Rooms are very clean. We travelled with another couple. Together we occupied the both rooms of this Bed and Breakfast. But we get more. We get a complete appartment with a kitchen, a sitting room and a room, in which ( an excellent) breakfast was served. Parking is free ( many places available in front of the Bed and Brakfast). It is by car a short drive to the Golden Gate Bridge as well as to other sight seeing points in San Francisco.

We stayed at Ocean B&B Sept 2011. I would describe Ocean Beach B&B as traditional Bed and Breakfast accommodation and there are two rooms available. During our visit we stayed in both rooms, the first room has a bed, TV and wardrobe and a bathroom across the hall, the other more expensive room has a larger living space with an en-suite, living room and bedroom (including sea view). Both rooms are great but if you can stay in the sea view room it is especially nice.

Located in the area of Richmond, on the west coast of San Francisco, a short walk away from the excellent Ocean Beach and Cliff House. We found the accommodation extremely comfortable, clean and it was in a nice and quiet residential location. Joanne was most welcoming and friendly, we found the breakfasts, which consisted of cereal, eggs, pastries, cheeses, fruit, yogurts as generous and tasty. The homemade cookies were also delicious! Ocean B&B is around 30-40 mins away from Union Square on the 38 bus along Geary Street, this journey was fine for us. The buses are regular well into the evening and affordable (get the Passport if you are staying for a few days).

Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend.
