“OB Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

The Ocean Beach Hotel is located in the quaint little town of Ocean beach. Situated directly across the street from the ocean, the beach is at your doorstep and the sunsets are breathtaking. The staff at the hotel are amazingly friendly and they go out of their way to make your stay with them enjoyable. The courtyard is beautiful and the perfect place to sit and enjoy a drink with friends...all the while enjoying the beauty of the ocean. We stayed in the condo for ten days during Christmas a couple years ago and had a fantastic time. I recently moved to San Diego but continue to stay at the OB Hotel on occasion just to enjoy the relaxation that always awaits me. I highly reommend the OB Hotel!

This was our second stay at this hotel. This time we had a ocean view room and had aproblem
with the plumbing. We called the desk and they had some one up to check it out very quick.
They could not fix the problem and moved us to a beter room. We were very happy with
the service and staff. We will be coming back and telling all our friends that this is the only
place to stay. Again many thanks to all. BW

The friendly, and helpful staff here makes you feel like you never left home. With the 30 second walk down to the beach and awesome surrounding night life, it makes for a great romantic get away. Can't wait to stay here again!

Room Tip: Pay the extra money for the beach view, your special lady will love it!

Location is the name of the game where this hotel is concerned, for it is close to awesome eateries, pubs, fine dining and of course, the ocean. Free morning coffee, free internet, and free parking add to the draw of this charming hotel. Some of the rooms are a little pricey, especially during summer season, and we have stayed in the rooms with french doors that open to the incredible view of the ocean. But we found that the ocean view with one queen suits our needs just fine, and it's about half the price of the king suites. We don't really stay in the room a lot, but it is nice to sit out on the balcony at night with our coffee or nightcaps and listen to the waves pounding the shore. What awesome background music to fall alseep to! We are planning our fouth visit soon and can't wait to see the friendly staff again. We know we can count on finding a clean, comfortable room in which to rest our heads at the end of the day.

Room Tip: All the rooms are clean and well supplied with linens and toiletries. Best views are from the king s...

We stayed there back in June, the front desk staff was so very helpful. There are so many different restaurants and pubs in the area! They knew exactly where to guide us after telling them what we were looking for. You are right in front of the beach and pier! Couldn't ask for a better location. parking is easy and accessable. We had so much fun, we stayed an extra day. It's hard to leave when you are treated so nice, hard to find the nowadays! Go there, you won;t be disappointed!

Room Tip: Advise the reservationist of your preference. They are so very accomadating!
