If you need a motel in Southwestern San Francisco near the Zoo, the Ocean Park is excellent. Established in 1936 and the first motel in San Francisco, the Ocean Park was built in the Art Deco style to resemble the great ocean cruise liners are the 1930s. It is beautiful and the owners have made it a nice place to stay with excellent service. My single room was okay for one, though it would have been a tight squeeze for two. (Accomodation in the 1930s was smaller than at present.) But the family units are quite large and our family will be returning in a month. Prices are comparable or a bit less than other motels in the area, but the Ocean Park also has atmosphere, a Jacuzzi and very nice gardens. A very good choice to those seeking accomodation in the area.
