Started our girls week in Palm Springs and 100+ degrees..ended it at Ocean beach and upper 70's! Living on the east coast and swimming in the Atlantic (Massachusetts) we wanted to make sure we experienced the Pacific. Perfect beach weather, hotel is literally across the street. Very eclectic area, lots of shops, restaurants/bars, lots of interesting characters...lol We had an...

Thank you for the review! We are so happy that you were able to enjoy the desert and be steps from the ocean in the same week. Southern California has so much to see and experience.

Location says everything! Across the street from the beach, and only a few minutes walk to the fishing pier. Also, right on the main street of Ocean Beach with plenty of restaurants, bars and shopping. The room was fairly small but clean with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was very small, no tub but it did have a nice walk...

This is the only hotel we stay at in San Diego. The rooms are wonderful and the employees are phenomenal. This time when we arrived they were going to put us on the second floor. The only way to the second and third floor are the stairs. My hubby had a bad knee and couldn't do the stairs, they changed...

We stayed for two nights with a room on the third floor facing the ocean. It is a great location for $270 a night with a balcony and free parking. They had no elevator and no one to carry up the luggage. The room had no coffee, no Kleenex, no high definition TV and no wifi. They insisted they had...

We are sorry you were unhappy with the amenities we provide. We do our best to keep costs reasonable while providing a fun, relaxed beach experience for our guests. We recently had our tankless water heater replaced which should alleviate any hot/cold issues. We are also investing money in improving our wifi signal. We hope that you will give us...

So my wife and I came to OB for a quick weekend getaway. We wanted a room right by the beach, which was a few steps away. We wanted restaurants and bars within walking distance so I wasn't driving intoxicated, which was also steps away. We were also hoping to hear the ocean waves but we were just a tad...

We have recently installed all new custom made furniture for every room. We feel they are beautiful, functional and help maximize the space in the room. As for the mattresses, they are all newer mattresses with a wonderful 3" memory foam topper. We normally get rave reviews for the comfortability of our beds, however, if you choose to visit us...

We stayed at ocean beach so we could travel with our dogs. Unfortunately they only had a 1 bed 1 bath room left which was very very small. The bed was comfortable, the tv was ok and the room for the most part could use updating. Because of the size of the room I would not stay here again unless...

Hi Chad! Thanks so much for writing your review. Indeed, our Courtside 1 Queen Bed rooms are on the smaller side although they are our most affordable rooms. As you mentioned, our Patio Rooms are also pet-friendly and much larger in the actual room and also have their own private patios. Also, just recently, we have put in brand new...

Dear Guest, We apologize for any confusion. Ever since we purchased the property in 2002 we have allowed pets on only our first floor. These rooms are better suited as pet-friendly rooms with their tiled flooring and private patios. We hate to lose anyone as a guest! I will sit down with our entire team and discuss whether opening the...
