“Great location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

Great room with a view overlooking the waves crashing into the beach. Close to restaurants, walked everywhere. Would definitely recommend and stay again. The fact that the weather was also perfect made for a great 3 day holiday.

It's been a few months since I returned to Ocean Park Inn and WOW - What a transformation. The upgrades can be noticed through out the hotel - from the exclusive lobby to awesome bath rooms ! The front desk staff was very professional and courteous especially Mat, Ola, Andres and Pat and some of the new faces. Would definitely recommend the hotel for it's beach front location, in room amenities and comfort and above all proximity to all the fun things to do in and around San Diego

Room Tip: Select Ocean Front Rooms as they offer panoramic views of Pacific Beach

Really nice place. Right on Pacific Beach, great for beach walks or just watching the waves. The desk staff goes out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Wifi and breakfast are included, though the wifi is weaker in some of the rooms than I would like, and I hope the hotel can fix this. Breakfast was fine, and available from 6:30 to 10:00. Parking is $10 a day, which is quite a bit less than other hotels nearby, and there are a LOT of restaurants of every kind within very easy walking distance. The rooms are very clean, with refrigerators and microwave ovens as well as comfortable beds, good climate control, and balconies or porches.

There's also a small guest laundry room, which is nice if you're staying a long time, or get caught in the rain and need to dry your jacket.

The bar right across from the hotel door is noisy on weekends, but the noise isn't audible in the rooms, at least not in the rooms that face the ocean. There are guys with guitars and amplifiers outside the nearby lifeguard station, so you could hear them in the ocean view rooms, but it seemed like they were only allowed to be there weekend afternoons, and only played for a few hours at the most.

Room Tip: Ocean view or partial view are definitely worth it, not only for the view, but they're quieter.

Right on the beautiful Pacific beach. Enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing outside our window and taking breakfast out on our balcony to enjoy while watching the ocean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a great stay!!

This is the 3rd or 4th time I have stayed at Ocean Park Inn. I love it more each time. The Inn is the perfect location between San Diego and La Jolla. I love the location right on the beach and the great boardwalk. I can walk for miles on the beach or boardwalk or sit on my balcony and watch all the people or the surfers. There 8-10 great restaurants within walking distance. I feel very safe walking around there. I always get a room with a balcony on the beachfront. I haven't been there for 4-5 years and the rooms have been updated-the bathrooms are beautiful and the showers are very nice. The staff there are always very friendly and helpful and the secured parking is very convienent. Even the fish aquariums in the lobby are fabulous. Thanks for the great & relaxing stay. I love it there.

Room Tip: I love the rooms right on the oceanfront, you can hear the waves and sit out on the balcony and watc...

Nice job updating the rooms. Super helpful staff. Love waking up in the morning and hearing the surf! I prefer to explore the area when I'm in town, and Pacific Beach is a great place to get out and walk.

With this location and view, not much more is needed! Renovations are underway. The updated bathroom was fine (needs towel racks). The breakfast is a plus. Internet is very weak especially on the upper floors. The staff go out of their way to meet every request - Patrick is a pro at customer service. We love the restaurants and nearby bus access. A great place for a mini-winter vacation!
