My idea of heaven is a charming place, no fuss, no frills. This hotel accomplished everything I needed for my weekend in OB.
First and foremost, they accept dogs. You do pay a slightly higher rate (and i do mean slightly) for the doggy rooms. The courtyard is perfect for sipping a coffee in the morning, you are steps from the beach (literally, steps. Cross the street and you are there!), the dog beach is about 3 blocks away. Newport Ave is such a great street to mosey down, shop, eat, drink (!).
Free wifi, free parking, free smiles and welcomes from owners and staff. You won't get 5 star luxury, but if you are like me, where simple kindness and charming surroundings are just what you're after, head to Ocean Beach hotel. It really is heaven in OB.More
