“Great Location”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

This little beachfront hotel has an awesome location! Just wanted to get away for the night, and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to see it was right across from the beach and so inexpensive. The front desk staff was so nice and tried give us a free upgrade, but all the balcony rooms were booked. Instead we got a room on the 3rd floor with an awesome view of the ocean. The hotel is clean and a great little place to get away for the night, we will be back!

My boyfriend and I, along with another couple stayed recently and absolutely loved the OB Hotel! Great location, about 2 steps from the beach and just a few more steps to tons of great restaurants, shops and bars. Staff is nice, rooms are clean, quaint and the price was right - what more can you ask for? We also enjoyed relaxing out in the courtyard area, which is really beautiful and looks out onto the beach! It was a great experience and we all look forward to coming back very soon!

OB Hotel made my trip a wonderful experience it has a beautiful court yard and when you side in the court yard you could see the ocean and it was fantastic and you could walk to shop places to eat. Just wish I could of stay longer the rooms were simple and very clean. I went with my daughter and we enjoy it every much. We also met the owner who was very friendly. I can't wait to go back! We had a courtside room downstairs so when you walk out of the room you would see the ocean. I think it is a really great place to stay. Can't wait to go back!!!!!! Can" say enough about the place good price a nice small hotel staff friendly ...........

Room Tip: I like the courtside rooms downstairs because you just walk out of your room and you are in the cour...

I want to state that this is our first trip to Cali and we did not know what to expect but we got much more than we would have thought from this boutique hotel. It is chic, peaceful, and right near the action yet not a sound was heard in the evening. Located right next to the pier and convenient to all restaurants and the beach we had an amazing time! My wife and I and friends and relatives went and stayed for one week and we couldn't have asked for a more relaxing stay.
The staff was what you would expect from a Westin 4 star in NYC (yes we have stayed there extensively) and the rooms were very modern with air conditioning and great views (ocean side balconies). We would definitely stay again and want to say thank you to the entire staff from the manager on down and we loved the Woody parked out front!

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view for larger rooms with balconies. The non balcony courtside rooms are not as b...

Everything about the OB Hotel is fantastic. The rooms are well-appointed and comfortable. The balcony we had was great and had an awesome view of the ocean, the beach, the end of Newport...the whole scene. The staff was courteous and prompt. We were even able to check in a few hours early. Parking, while a bit tight, is right on site - a welcome feature in OB. What a great spot in a great town! Go and enjoy this wonderful hotel and all the area has to offer...

Room Tip: Definitely get a balcony room on the south side - it'll put you right in the heart of things.

This hotel is by the best value for many reason in Ocean Beach. They have friendly & helpful staff that goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The location is AMAZING! They allow dogs and they rooms are very tidy. I look forward to this hotel every summer.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with the French doors facing the ocean - They are breath-taking!

My mother & I have chosen Ocean Beach Hotel for the last 4 years because of their location, room sizes, friendly helpful staff & safety. They have free parking that makes life MUCH easier & free Wifi that is also an added bonus. The price for all the benefits you get is amazing!
