My wife and I stayed here in 2008 while traveling with friends, and this time we were traveling with our daughter. We enjoyed the OPM so much the first time, with its convenient access to the MUNI (L train) system and close proximity to the beach, we decided to stay here again. Mark and his staff take pride in the history of the motel and do a tremendous job keeping the grounds well-maintained. Given the fact the motel was the first one in the S.F. area in 1937 the room sizes reflect that era, so don't expect lots of space around the beds and large bathrooms like many 'suite' hotels offer. You get the basic amenities, but they're offered nicely -- one of the most comfortable mattresses I've ever slept on, I might add.
