“Nice stay on the beach in SF”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Spent one night at the Ocean Park Motel in December, when the sun is incredible in the outer sunset district. The room was clean and nice, though there was no bathtub, but probably slightly overpriced for what it was. Very friendly owners and adorable space.

Charming motel located in San Francisico suburb, near SF City Zoo. Apartments with 1 or 2 rooms, with no breakfast, but equipped with refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Ocean Park team gently prepared a short guide about surroundings and San Francisco (Cafes, restaurants and Attractions). Parking area avaliable and very easy access to public transport (less than 40 minutes to downtown).

What a cute little old fashioned motel. The owners were so nice and helpful with everything in the area. Mind you,if its a fancy place you're looking for this isn't it. Its a boutique hotel. It is located out of the main tourist area. There are street cars running by all the time but that just adds to the ambience.

Room Tip: This cute place is within walking distance to the beach.

The Ocean Park Motel is a lovely place to stay if you want to see a different side of San Francisco. It is a block from a vast beach (Ocean Beach) and feels like a whole different world compared with the downtown area, but it isn't hard to get to from the airport due to the fact that it's right on a streetcar line (you can easily transfer from BART, though the trip does take a little time). Several buses are also very handy - it's quite easy to reach other parts of the city from the motel. My room was small and not terribly bright, but very clean with everything in good working order. I can see how some guests have found the motel noisy (the street car and one bus run along 46th Ave., and it seems like noise could carry from other rooms), however, I found the motel to be incredibly quiet at night. I slept with the window open, and although I could hear the streetcars drifting by, I could also hear the surf. The front desk provides you with an excellent handout detailing the dining and grocery options in the area (as well as tips for nice walks, how to reach other neighbourhoods on transit, etc.). I found these recommendations to be accurate and reliable - very helpful indeed. The hot tub is very pleasant. You'll probably have it to yourself as it's in its own enclosure - a lovely place to view the night sky. The neighbourhood is mostly residential, and good for walking. The beach is spectacular - it's a wild, end-of-the-world kind of beach with big waves and pelicans cruising by. Don't miss the breakfast sandwiches and coffee at the Devil's Teeth bakery on Noriega St. Delicious.

Get away with my daughter over long weekend was just right. Close to hiking, transport to city! We had a kitchen! Little noisy with L right outside but that made it crazy easy to get around. Lovely time. Staff super nice and kind

This place has a great location, exceptional value, was clean, not as noisy as some report, the way America once was. These were not perfect mattress and pillow accommodations but at the same time they were flawless. We had two bedrooms with a kitchen and that too was very nicely appointed. I was one million percent satisfied, to exaggerate but you know what I mean.

Room Tip: be clear about what you want
