Second time staying at OPI and most definitely not the last.
We booked about 3 months in advance and a week after booking we received a call from the hotel. They wanted to inform us that there was going to be some major construction going on during the time we would be there (bathrooms) and that they were going to discount our stay because of the inconvenience. We ended up saving over $500 for the week and there was no inconvenience. The most we saw or heard of the construction were some boards in the hall floors and a few bangs of a hammer. We were thrilled with our entire stay. Very helpful, cheerful and informative front desk, excellent housekeeping staff, awesome salt water aquariums in the front lobby and spectacular sunsets from our beautiful 3rd floor ocean front/boardwalk room. I can't wait to go back!!
Thanks OPI!!!

Room Tip: Ask for second or third floor ocean view, on the boardwalk..not behind the pool.

Thank you for the awesome review! We're glad our renovations did not at all hinder your stay - hopefully the next time you visit the construction will be over and you can fully enjoy the newly renovated bathrooms and other room updates! We can't wait to see you again!

I booked this with a promo code on Travelocity. If you want to experience the Beach and San Diego, this is the place. This was our last night in a 6 night vacation of Southern California.

We got there early and the room wasn’t ready but they gave us a key for the garage and stated we could use any facilities at the hotel which was nice. The girl at the front desk was very friendly both times I saw her there. I was impressed with her great personality. For whatever reasons the guys working the desk came across a bit less friendly then her.

The room was incredible and it’s all about the view. I will say for an older hotel it’s well-kept up too. It blends both the old school feel with the amenities of today. Bed was comfortable, had a fridge and microwave, a safe, and a small chair that pulled out into a small bed. This sofa chair/bed was perfect for our 3 year old. The room has towels that you can take to the beach with you as well. There is a nice small balcony with chairs to enjoy the view. We didn’t use the pool but did have breakfast which was good (pastries, yogurt, waffles, juice, etc). The Wi-Fi worked great as well.

Overall, the hotel can be noisy so keep that in mind. There seem to be lots of party bars right next door and you overlook the beach area so keep that in mind. It wasn’t too bad for us. There was a little noise with people coming back to their rooms in the middle of the night, but that’s it.


We had a great stay and only wished we had stayed longer. I am already trying to plan a trip back and hopefully longer at this hotel this time.I would highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Go fo rthe ocean view King..you wont be dissapointed!!! Its worth every dollar

Right on the beach. Lots of people watching! We had a ground floor room with cushy furniture outside to hang out and listen to the music and watch the people go by. The hotel staff were all very nice, Pat especially. He hooked us up with a place to eat dinner that was great. The hotel is a little dated, but I think we heard it was going to have a major renovation. My only complaint was noise. Our room was just past the lobby and elevator and when the bars get out, oh boy! The noise level, stomping about, people being loud and practically right next to our door. I would suggest a higher floor and away from the elevator. I did complain, and the staff was very apologetic, but what can you do? Perhaps a sign by the elevator asking people to be quiet? At 2am, probably not gonna happen. The location could not be better! We were minutes away from everything we were doing in SD. The parking garage is tight! Wouldn't want to park anything but a rental in there, but was super convenient. Continental breakfast was average. I thought is was super cool they had lifts for disabled folk to get in the pool and hot tub. Could have been a little cleaner. The bathroom had some traces of previous guests and the furniture outside was pelted with bird poop. Towels available at the front desk solved that. All in all we liked it. Again, the staff were all very nice, and you cannot beat the location!

Room Tip: Highest floor, and away from the elevator! If you get a room in the back you will hear much more str...

We have been going to San Diego for several years to escape the Phoenix heat, and stay at the Ocean Park Inn. One year we stayed at another hotel - big mistake! The Ocean Park Inn, is and always will be our destination. The staff is amazing, the location is perfect, we highly recommend the Ocean Park Inn!

Room Tip: Best sunset view - Oceanside top floor!

Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the Ocean Park Inn.... It seemed to have everything we were looking for during our stay.... Loved how close it was to good eating establishments and shopping in general..... The EXCEPTION we had was that their WiFi is not secure at all.... We did have a hacking incident that may cost us about $600.00 dollars do to stolen info from my computer... That might be something you should look at.... OTHERWISE we love the hotel and the location....

Room Tip: We especially enjoyed the balcony with an excellent view of the boardwalk and beach.....
