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!

These little cottages were wonderful. Having only seen the pictures posted on the web, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. When we pulled up I was thrilled!!!! They are quaint, lush little cottages, a quick walk to the beach. We went up with a group of friends for a low key- bargain priced weekend & that's what it was! We hung out on the patio, had a bonfire on the beach, sat in the jacuzzi, & didn't have to eat out once, after a trip to the very convenient market. Located in a hippie community- everything's in walking distance.... we will defintely be going back. The only negative thing was parking- at night its impossible to find a close spot without circling for 20minutes & even then good luck. Otherwise GREAT!!!
