Reviewed 21 March 2010

We love the beach, My wife and I have stayed here as many as 6 times a year and have had our 2 kids with us before and after marriage with their spouses. It is the ideal place on the beach for view,culture,nightlife,and beach walking. They are just finishing a remodel that is a nice update. You can`t beat the view and food from Kono`s to Joes Crab Shack. The Firehouse right next door is newer and very nice w/ excellent food. Whether family,romance,friend etc the place is perfect.

Found the staff friendly and helpful. Location is great if you want to be near it all and are not shy a walking. Once you park in their underground garage (charge imposed) you can walk to most anything you may need. Full Ocean view room w/balcony was clean and functional. The view is fantastic. The boardwalk below is very busy with all sorts of peeps during the day. Our stay was everything we expected and maybe a bit more.

Not happy with the noise and street people in front of the hotel. Management rude and not very helpful. While I appreciate the location on the boardwalk is charming, having the people camped in front of the hotel just did not justify the price. Look at other hotels down the way, I found several others without the problems, and management seemed much more friendly.

We came to San Diego for an athletic competion. I booked our room 3 weeks in advance with the hotel itself. Not at any time did the clerk that took the reservation point out, that on the weekend we were to stay, was a yearly festival on the boardwalk and a soundstage with live music direclty next to the hotel. We arrrived on Friday the halls had a funny smell the couch in the room was disgusting and you had to put a towel over it ,in order to sit. The room had a great view however you could not go outside on to the balcony on saturday due to the blarring music and noise from the boardwalk. After the music stopped the clean up and breakdown of the tents began. The doors and draperies were closed and the noise was still unbearable. After being in a competion all of saturday with a second day to follow we needed to sleep which was impossible. The people at the front desk were nice the Assistant Manager has an attitude.I will never stay in this hotel again or recommend it to anyone.

This hotel is located directly on the Promenade on Pacific Beach, which means you just need to step out of your room to be on the beach.
We had a room with partial ocean view - strongly recommended! We had the swimming pool below our room, and then the ocean at a (short) distance. The room was pretty large and comfy.
Breakfast and Internet access was included. The staff was also very helpful in assisting us with our trip planning. Overall, our stay at this hotel was a highly positive experience!

Was hesitant about this hotel after reading some of the reviews and my fears came to life as soon as we checked in. We had a room on the first floor with a kitchenette which smelled awful - evidently a souvenier from the last meal cooked there. The hotel is very outdated. I was told by the very nice desk clerk (who took me around the hotel attempting to find us another room) that they are in the process of updating???? Not to sure about that. Hotel is right on the strand. There is no A/C in the hallways and it appears that windows are usually kept open. We were supposed to stay two nights but left after one. Probably a great place for families on a budget with small children. Oh yeah, continental breakfast is juice boxes and poptarts basically. It is a good location though.

this hotel had great reviews on "trip advisor"....but for the $$$ truly it is one of the best values in san diego!!! we stayed at pacific terrace a few years ago, but ocean park inn is by far the better value. no "bells and whistles" but just a comfortable place to stay. all the restaurants, shops and bars are just blocks away. and you just can't beat the ocean view room we had. the staff was very friendly and accomodating to all of our needs. we were with family and they also agreed, we will all be back!
