Fortunately we’d spent some time in Ocean Beach before our weekend stay. We knew we were possibly sacrificing quiet nights of sleep for the OB vibe. It’s not your typical San Diego neighborhood. It’s a mix of not only surfers & tourists but also free-spirits and some who are maybe a little down on their luck (but are making the most of it at the beach!). We spent a little extra on the room and reserved the 2 queens with a patio & ocean view. Will do that again as I understand the other rooms are tight. Patio was perfect for people-watching (image below). No coffee in the room but I know of at least 1 coffee shop within about a block. There is a refrigerator. Room was clean. TV and wi-fi worked when we needed. Yes, there was a bit of night noise but not excessive. The beach is truly right across the street and there are several bars & restaurants to walk to. Have fun!

This hotel has beautiful views of the ocean and the beach is right across the street. Our room is small but clean. Since we are here during COVID19 we don't have any type of services but if we need anything all we have to do is ask. Plenty of room for storage, has a refrigerator but no coffee maker.

This beach has turned into a cluster of transients, and clouded of weed. The surrounding restaurants do not cater to kids, but pander to the young who are there to drink only. We could not escape the loud and drunks at night when ready to relax, surrounded by screaming drunks until 4am, without noise restriction past a certain time. Dogs were wandering inside the courtyard peeing and pooping all over the fake grass. Filthy. The fridge in the room didn't work. Never will be back to Ocean Beach.

Pros: ok...so not everything is bad about this hotel. I mean, the views from the ocean view rooms with balcony are amazing. They have a terrace area on each of the 3 floors which makes a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee or dinner and watch the ocean and surfers. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. They offer free parking and a refrigerator in the room. Cons: During our 3 day stay, there was a man found stabbed underneath the Ocean Beach Pier, 2 ambulances called for fights/victims of the fights, and a car literally racing around the parking lot at 5:00am trying to chase and kill the other homeless people who they apparently had a problem with while those in the parking lot that normally live there we’re trying to hit the car with garbage cans and/or other objects to either antagonize or deter them..hard to tell. Police were literally out there at least 3-4 times per day (maybe more since we wouldn’t have seen them while out for the day). In room phone did not work. When I tried to dial 911 for the car trying to chase and kill people in the parking lot across the street, I found out there was no dial tone and it didn’t work. I was able to call from my cell phone though:) I called the front desk later to let them know. They never did fix it so maybe it’s something they were already aware of? Partying INSIDE the hotel is HUGE!!! So, if you’re planning to sleep, hope you have a VERY high tolerance to loud noises, yelling and dogs barking. No coffee maker and honestly, early in the morning, I didn’t feel comfortable going out by myself to go find coffee. During the daytime it’s a bit better since there are more people around and the people who live on the beach kind of calm down a bit. It’s sad really. (Also, no microwave) There are probably quite a few people living there on the beach that could use some mental health services. No elevator for luggage. Third floor was fine for me because we only had a carry on and backpack, but if you are older or have a family, that could be a problem. For the price they charge per room per night, I expected a much better experience overall.

Hotel was cozy, clean, steps away from beach, you can sit on the porch between rooms and watch surfers as long as you want, or just enjoy watching the ocean waves and people walking, rooms are little small, but worth every penny if you got an ocean view room, will try to get a room here evry time I visit the area
