“Ocean Front Hotel in Pacific Beach”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Just returned from a visit to San Diego. I stayed 3 nights at the Ocean Pacific Inn. This hotel is right on the beach and is a great location in Pacific Beach. They have a heated pool and spa and there are always plenty of towels available. The hotel has an exit to the boardwalk and provides beach chairs and toys to use. You have to use your room key to get back into the hotel from this exit, so you feel very secure that nobody will "break into" the hotel while you are there.
Each room has a balcony with a table and chairs; a refridgerator and microwave, and a large desk and sitting area. Most of the bathrooms have been remodeled and they are beautiful.
They have a continental breakfast each morning and always have fruit and lemonade out during the day.
The staff is very friendly and accomadating. The underground parking is gated and there are many excellent restaurants and bars within walking distance. There is also a Starbucks and great grocery store right across the street.
They have great rates available right now as they undergo their upgrade. The workers are very considerate and it doesn't bother you at all that they are there. They do start early, but I am an early riser, so I didn't bother me at all.
They also give you 2 "personal towels" to use during your visit. They are very large plush towels that you can bring to the pool or even the beach.

Room Tip: During the construction specail, it is definitely affordable to get an ocean view room.

We've been back to this hotel many times, because it's perfectly located right on the beach, close to Konos (my favorite breakfast place) and within easy striking distance of downtown, Sea World and (of course) the beach.

The hotel was under construction this time. The only real impact it had on us was we got a much nicer room than we had booked. The staff is very friendly and they went to great lengths to make sure everything was OK, despite all the work men around. My kids also love that the pool and Jacuzzi are really close when they end up getting a little cold at the beach.

A definite place to stay if you want to visit San Diego

Room Tip: Try not to get a room next to the Firehouse night club as it can be very loud at night.

Ok so the positives; big room with space for the kids in a separate area, nice little pool, decent staff, clean and well managed. Great views, right on the ocean front, and reasonable value in period.

The negatives; I guess we just didn't know the area too well, but it seemed a bit Spring Break - young crowd, pretty noisy, OK bars and restaurants but obviously catering to a younger (20-30) clientele.

Room Tip: Go for the ocean view, away from the bar above the fire station.

For the price and the views you can not go wrong. My boyfriend and I stayed there November 8-10 2013. What a lovely place. Great restaurants in the area, great dinners in the area and a view from your room that, well you would not believe it. Just spectacular. The people are amazing in this area. Friendly staff. You can leave your sliding glass door open from the balcony and listen to the ocean all night. You smell the salty air and sweet dreams. The balcony area is great. They have 2 chairs and a table on all of the 2nd and 3rd floor rooms. I recommend the 3 floor because the views are amazing.

Room Tip: Third floor corner room. Spectacular views.

This is our second time staying at Ocean Park Inn. We got a great deal on an ocean front room with balcony during construction at the hotel. We love the view, walking distant to restaurants, and most of the clean beach.

The only thing I can ding them on is the noise level at the local clubs (Firehouse club, etc.) being heard in the room. Saturday night was pretty loud until 2:00 a.m., however, Sunday night was much quieter.

Added bonus - We made it to Qualcomm Stadium in 20 minutes!!

Thank you for your feedback, Donna! We are very centrally located in greater San Diego, so heading to a Chargers or Padres game is a breeze!

Our apologies for the restaurant next door. We have a fantastic relationship with the Firehouse and multiple safeguards in place to ensure the music does not get too loud on the weekends, so you can be sure we will conduct an investigation as to why it may have been louder than normal when you were here.

Thank you again, and we hope to see you for another Chargers game next year!

Had a great time staying at the OPI for a local wedding. Walking convenience to many of the shops and restaurants in Pacific Beach. Construction rate was a HUGE bonus as I'm sure regular rates are much higher.

Room Tip: Get a full ocean view that overlooks the boardwalk. Well worth waking up to the surf

My daughter and I live in separate States. I came to Ocean Park to have a fun weekend with her. The experience did not disappoint. An ocean view is great. You can walk to what ever you need. No car necessary.

Room Tip: Tell them that you don't want to hear the noises from the Bars.
