I remember the early years of motor hotels (AKA motels), and the Ocean Park Motel is a beautifully-maintained slice of history that is bound to bring nostalgic sighs from old folks like me. My husband and I spent four nights in an upstairs suite with 2 queen beds that was roomy enough to be an apartment. The small, incredibly cute kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, gas range, and microwave. Cooking utensils, dinnerware, drinking glasses, and flatware are provided (they even thought to include an oven mitt). There's a large dining room with a table that is also handy for setting up computer equipment. Lots of electrical outlets for charging things, and good free wi-fi. The outdoor hot tub was great. There's a Muni trolley that runs along the front of the motel until midnight, but the train noise didn't disturb my sleep, and the Muni was very handy for getting around town inexpensively. Someone has obviously put a lot of love into this place, bless their hearts. Next time I come to San Francisco, the Ocean Park Motel will be on my list.
