I thought this place, and the surrounding neighborhood, was a complete dump. The bright blue cottages on the Web site were certainly not bright in real life. We drove right by them, not recognizing them. The roof of each cottage was falling apart, the paint was chipping, the common grounds were in disrepair, and the hot tub was dirty. Our cottage was garishly and sloppily painted, though clean. The washer-dryer unit was a rusted out set, sitting outside under some stairs. Maid service came every other day, and did not even include bed-making. The neighborhood was filled with transients and Ocean Beach itself was too. The only store nearby was a liquor store (with a few groceries), and walking at night did not feel safe. All in all, NOTHING like the Web site presented. If you're going to San Diego and you don't have a lot to spend, you're better off staying at a Best Western. At least you get free breakfast and your bed gets made!
