Stayed with wife for honeymoon, last leg of our USA holiday. Amazing. Great, truly friendly service, thanks to Patrick who gave us some great local spots. The room was clean, slightly old but extremely charming and we woke up to the sound of ocean. If your staying there, make sure, get the ocean view, well worth the money. Very happy, thanks guys.

Room Tip: Choose ocean view, leave the blinds open and be awaken by the ocean :)

I stayed here in April 2012 with a group of friends. I had reserved a first floor, no view room to keep costs down (the area is pretty expensive, although this hotel had one of the best rates). When the desk clerk saw that all my friends were on the top floor overlooking the pool and beach, he upgraded me to a room right next to them at no charge! He was also very helpful with recommending restaurants nearby and even gave us a coupon for one of them. Very friendly, excellent service.

The rooms themselves are clean and comfortable, although the decor could definitely use an upgrade. The pool and hot tub were also very clean and not crowded at all. There is a secure parking garage available for $10/day. They also have a pretty good continental breakfast selection.

The location is perfect - right on the beach, and walking distance to tons of great restaurants, bars, and shopping. There is a Starbucks and a CVS right across the street. The area has a young, party atmosphere and good nightlife, but also seemed safe.

Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: The building is U-shaped so you can either get rooms in the center that overlook the pool with the o...

Thank you for such a great review! We're happy to hear you had such a good time with your friends. We are very centrally located in Pacific Beach - often guests park their car upon arrival and don't move it again until they check out! We are continuing the process of upgrading our rooms over the next few months, so be sure to come back and check out all the changes!

Stayed 3 nights at the OPI in April. Great location in Pacific Beach next to the boardwalk, with dining and bars within a block. Grocery store,drug store and shopping around the corner as well. Each room has a balcony with a table and a couple of chairs. Great ocean views along the front of the buidling. Decor a little dated but very clean facility and helpful staff. Room had a micro wave and good size fridge which were usefull. Free internet also provided. In the pool area there is a hot tub which is a nice feature on the cool California nights. Secured parking was only $10 a night which is a deal in San Diego. Would definately stay again.

Room Tip: Stay on second or third floor at front of hotel along the boardwalk. These rooms provide great view...

We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay! Many of our guests agree - on a brisk San Diego night, there is nothing more enjoyable than going for a dip in our heated pool and hot tub! You'll also be excited to hear that within the next few months, our guestrooms will be getting a makeover! The new window treatments, bedding, etc. in each room will better tie in our new painted walls and new carpets quite nicely. We look forward to seeing you again!

Stayed here on a last minute staycation. The location is perfect! Although the hotel is not fancy.....it is very clean. This can be a challenge anywhere near the beach, but the room was immaculate and didn't smell musty. Our patio opened up to the pool and hot tub...which was awesome! Definitely a great place to stay to be in the middle of it all!

Stayed with my kids for a week. Super friendly and helpful staff, comfortable room with a great view. Great place to people watch and to be active. Walking distance to everything you could need. Clean, pleasant pool and hot tub, and plenty of beach stuff to borrow. Secure parking for a very reasonable rate. Highly recommend to others, and hope to come back!

We wanted to spend a weekend hanging out in Pacific Beach and the Ocean Park Inn is right at the epicenter. It's located right along the boardwalk and most rooms have views of the pool, boardwalk and ocean. The rooms are nothing special. However, the rooms were clean, staff was very friendly and helpful, and secured underground parking was provided ($10). Nice outdoor pool/whirlpool also.

Great staff, great location. Right on the beach, very close to good food. A++++++++.

Room Tip: Try to stay on the top floors for a view of the ocean. Can't really see ocean from bottom floor.

Thanks for the fantastic grade! There is indeed very good food in Pacific Beach - everything from seafood to steak to Italian. Next time, make sure you swing by the front desk to look at menus and see if we have any discount cards!
