What a cute little old fashioned motel. The owners were so nice and helpful with everything in the area. Mind you,if its a fancy place you're looking for this isn't it. Its a boutique hotel. It is located out of the main tourist area. There are street cars running by all the time but that just adds to the ambience.

The Ocean Park Motel is a lovely place to stay if you want to see a different side of San Francisco. It is a block from a vast beach (Ocean Beach) and feels like a whole different world compared with the downtown area, but it isn't hard to get to from the airport due to the fact that it's right...

Get away with my daughter over long weekend was just right. Close to hiking, transport to city! We had a kitchen! Little noisy with L right outside but that made it crazy easy to get around. Lovely time. Staff super nice and kind

This place has a great location, exceptional value, was clean, not as noisy as some report, the way America once was. These were not perfect mattress and pillow accommodations but at the same time they were flawless. We had two bedrooms with a kitchen and that too was very nicely appointed. I was one million percent satisfied, to exaggerate but...

Pros: close to ocean and walking trails, close to zoo, muni stop across street, very clean, Free onsite parking Cons: In "fog belt", older property, so fewer plugs, small bathroom, less soundproofing. Muni is noisy (ear plugs are provided if you need them; we didn't), ask for a room In the back away from the street

I was able to make a reservation with little notice and the owner stayed up till late in the evening for us to arrive and was very helpful and friendly, even upgrading our room. It was perfect as a romantic getaway, a little gem set by the sea and away from the hustle and bustle of the main city. It...

Very pretty little motel, and $150 for a room with a full kitchen isn't a bad deal in SF. However, the two most important things for us are a good mattress and decent water pressure. Mattress seemed both very firm, and lumpy--neither of us slept well all night. (We do a lot of hotel travel, and have rarely slept so...

We chose this motel near the SF Zoo and Great Highway for one night, because everything in or near downtown SF was at $400+ per night due to a conference in town. We also were interested in the historic and art deco architecture aspects of this 1930s hotel with 'streamline moderne' design. The people were great: very friendly and accommodating,...
