I've stayed here many times throughout the years and have never been disappointed. Ocean facing rooms are super cool, excellent food within walking distance. Plenty of bars to get a cold drink, I highly recommend staying at this location.

I only stayed one night at Ocean Beach Hotel, but our room was front side, 2nd floor, with windows that opened. It was nice to be able to open the windows and listen to the ocean and all the sounds and to watch the people. Great room with everything you needed. I would stay there again. The courtyard was peaceful.

While visiting our son, who lives in Ocean Beach, we decided to stay at the Ocean Beach Hotel. We didn't know what to expect and were pleasantly surprised to find the hotel located directly across from the beach and a short walk to the long pier (pun intended). Our room was clean and appointed with the necessities, and, although a...

You can literally here everything in the rooms next door and above you. By everything, I mean even people speaking at normal, regular volume. This doesn't make for a very comfortable stay. In the summer when this place is completely full, I can't imagine anyone staying here getting even a minute of sleep.

We are sorry you did not have a positive experience at our hotel. When we purchased the property we actually had insulation blown into all the walls and ceilings which are approximately 5 inches wide. We will continue to look for solutions to any detectable noise transference. Thank you for your review.

I love this place! It is no frills but very clean and a great value San Diego. It is nearly on top of the beach. There are fabulous little bars and restaurants all around the hotel. I will stay again.

Whenever we get the chance to get away by ourselves, we ALWAYS pick Ocean Beach Hotel. It soothes our souls. The Hotel and the grounds are just so beautiful and relaxing. The Staff is always welcoming and helpful. They treat us like family, instead of strangers just staying for a few days. We love the courtyard and the little tables...

A very simple hotel yes, but very welcoming and inviting staff who clearly take pride in the upkeep of this hotel and comfort of their guests. My room was so clean and smelled great and the location is unbeatable. A definite recommended stay!

My wife and I stayed at Ocean Beach Hotel, along with two other couples, our best friends. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the accommodations were warm and welcoming. I thought we would spend all our time touring San Diego, but we never left the beach. Between the people watching, shopping, and great food and drinks, we found all our...
