Reviewed September 14, 2012

We have stayed at this hotel twice. I love the views of the ocean and the location on the boardwalk. Staff are great and welcoming each time as you are coming and going. There is a bar right next to the hotel and I was a little worried about the noise but you couldnt hear it at all at night. While you do need to pay for parking (only 10 dollars a night) it was totally worth it not having to fight for parking. Loved that we could just walk out to the beach to lay out and walk back to our room if we needed anything. Will be going back next year!

Room Tip: room that faces the ocean.

Thank you for being a loyal guest and taking the time to write a nice review! Although we do have that fee for the parking, you're absolutely right, it's worth it! Parking in the area, especially on nice sunny days, is nearly impossible. Plus, our rate is relatively low compared to other hotels in the area who charge up to $35/night for parking! Thanks again for the review, we look forward to seeing you next year.

The staff was helpful. Right on the beach. Decor is dated, but comfortable. I liked the cool eateries and breweries immediately outside of the hotel. Nightlife, beers, beach, and even a convenience store at your disposal. I'd stay again and recommend it to others.

We stayed here in August 2012 - clean rooms, right on the beach, comfortable bed. We were upgraded on arrival and had a great room facing the ocean. Location is excellent, walking distance to many restaurants, beach, shopping, and grocery store. Small fridge in the room was a bonus. Staff were very friendly. Beach was great right out front of the hotel, with life guard startion right there. Pool was great to have and protected from wind. Breakfast is one of the best hotel breakfasts we had on our 2 week trip and even has a waffle maker!
We definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
Some reviewers complain about the noise, but that is because there are a number of restaurants and pubs nearby - we were not bothered by their proximity.

We have stayed at the Ocean Park Inn several times. Our experiences have always been first rate. The crew at the front desk is always helpful and professional. The rooms are clean and well kept. There is no better beach location in San Diego, near the pier and many fine resturants.We will be back to Ocean Park Inn.

Room Tip: All of the rooms on the ocean front are awesome.

OK so the rooms and hotel decor are old, but the views at sunset and location are out of this world! my friend and i have two queens and we have had the best sleep here than any other hotel we have stayed in during our trip. The pool is a generous size and we are close to everything including an amazing healthy supermarket open till 1am and the best fish tacos ever. We have also done yoga locally and hired very cheap bikes at 10 dollars a day. we are two females and feel 100% safe here at night and around the hotel. I am flummoxed at some of the poor reviews and wonder why people didnt go stay at Tower23 if they want fancy. Also there seems to be a beach bum culture and the homeless people dotted around the place seem less than anywhere else i have been on our california road trip. Dont let naysayers put you off. This is a fantastically locted hotel, with great staff and EXTREMELY clean. I cant wait to come back.

Room Tip: two queens are great!

Julia what an amazing review! You've really nailed it - it's disappointing for everyone involved when people don't do their research before coming out to San Diego. Like I've said a number of times on TripAdvisor, we are neither the fanciest nor the most affordable property around - but - we are very competitively priced, we offer the most complimentary amenities around, we have excellent customer service, and we're an extremely clean property!

We're all very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time not only at our property, but also in the area. You'll be happy to know that we are spending a great deal of time and money this winter updating our rooms, so keep your eyes out for those changes the next time you stay with us. Thanks again for the wonderful review, take care!

Year number three in a row (4th stay overall) - family get together for the long Labor Day weekend at the beach. Excellent as usual. Very friendly and efficient staff; very clean; excellent location. No negatives - all positives. We’ll be back next year…

Room Tip: Get a balcony - its worth it. You look right at Ocean, beach and the strand.

My wife and I visit San Diego every few years and always stay at the Ocean Park Inn. It has always been a great place to stay. It's hard to find rooms right on the boardwalk/beach. The rooms and all common areas are clean and well kept. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The cleaning crew is always cheerful. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. I even had my sister and her family meet us there a couple years back. We all had a great time!
