Ocean Beach Hotel
Ranked #158 of 278 Hotels in San Diego
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We were considering a week long stay in San Diego, but we're hesitant to do it because we were traveling with our dog and this was part of a three week trip rot CA.
After seeing the website and reviews we decided to test their "price guarantee". I am pleased to say they do stand by their word of matching rates of comparable hotels. Because of this we were able to stay at the hotel for 8 nights.
I was concerned about noise levels and brought ear plugs to use, but we did not need them, the set up for the room with two double beds is great and there is a half wall that separates the room with beds at opposing walls.
Our son slept on the bed closest to the patio and street,we slept on the bed closest to the courtyard. We truly enjoyed our stay at this property.
The patio is nice for a pet, and the views of the pier and ocean are great even on ground floor level.
At check in we asked if the street noise was bad, could we switch rooms, they said absolutely!
We had a couple of issues with the sink leaking and the toilet not flushing well, but again they offered to gives us a different room, we did not want to move all of our stuff, so they just gave us the key to the room next door until the maintenance person was able to remedy the situation.
Location can not be beat. the dog breach is a short walk down the beach/street.
The had a fridge and a microwave so we were able to bring leftovers and eat them on evenings we did not feel like eating out.
The proximity to the main street at ocean beach was great and it was centrally located to a lot of tourist attractions.
We would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If not traveling with pets ask for a third floor room with ocean view

great little place in the heart of Ocean Beach - stayed in their condo next door - 2 beds, full kitchen and dining room, private balcony overlooking the beach and 1 block to eat at Hoodad's - it's amazing. Walked thru the main hotel - people were all nice, everything was clean but didn't see a room - so I can't speak to that.

Staff was nice, coffee in the lobby bright and early then headed to the beach to watch the sun come up and the surfers - amazing !

I stayed here for a recent business trip in San Diego. Great location in the heart of OB and steps to the beach. Close to numerous restaurants and shops. Staff was friendly, and the room was recently renovated and nice, with a refrigerator and microwave. The view from my window was awesome, and a great place to experience the unique OB vibe.

My husband and I stay here anytime we can get away. this is truly our home away from home. The hotel is always clean, the staff is super, and very accomadating.. Location is perfect for dining, walking on the beach, hiking the cliffs, or just a walk on the pier to view all the sea life.Once we get there we park and never drive for evertything you need is within walking distance. If there be sure to check out south beach bar and grill, the fish tacos are the BOMB!!!! The atmosphere is so chill, friendly people that are just hard to find anymore. As for me and mine we will return again and again as long as we are able.

We have been staying here at least twice a year for five years. The owners recently completed a makeover on the patio and exterior of the building. Most of the bathrooms have been remodeled. More is to come! The view is awesome and the access to the beach, shops, restaurants, and the doggie beach are within steps.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view.

We have stayed here twice now and we will come back again & again. You cannot beat the location- steps from the beach and close to restaurants and shops. The rooms are not overly plush however they are clean with a refridgerator which is helpful. We travelled with our boys & the two queen beds in the room gave us plenty of room to make it our flop house for our stay. Get a room with an ocean view so you can sit on the deck and watch the world go by. The courtyard is a lovely place to eat your breakfast or rinse the sand off your feet in the outdoor shower. If you are in to the OB vibe this place is the best spot to make your casa for your visit.

I have stayed at the Ocean Beach Hotel a few times. I will agree with LOCATION! The property is right out of Melrose Place."BEAUTIFUL" Everytime I have stayed the staff is awesome. The night I stayed I wanted coffee no the beach. I brought my own coffee but my room did not have a pot. The night girl went out of her way and brewed my coffee. OLD FASHION PERSONAL SERVICE! Hard to find any more. Your money is worth the stay.

Room Tip: Ocean veiw rooms are very nice
