“This place is a dive”
Reviewed 7 August 2009

It is without doubt the worst motel I have stayed in anywhere in the world and I have stayed in some poor ones. Reception stinks of stale curry and I love curry. The description of the facilities are totally false. The so called kitchenette consists of a microwave and a sink which doubles as a bathroom basin. Not so much as a mug provided. Police attended place twice in twelve hours.
Manager abusive and rude, abused and threatened me verbally re noise from a nearby room and made no attempt to apologise when he found out he was incorrect.
Do not understand why anyone would stay twice. It is not even cheap.

This place was not nice. Most of the people staying there were living there. Drug traffic, and prostitution.Our room was dirty with patches on the walls covering holes. Our lock on our door looked like it had been busted several times. Everyone just looked shady. We were only there one night for a concert, while at the concert we asked locals about our motel and they told us that we were staying in one of the worst places in the area. Never again, It was a very busy motel. No on room 206!

Better then Average motel in the area. Nice and clean exterior and parking.I stayed in 2 bed rooms for couple nights with my wife and 2 kids.The housekeeping staff was quite good ,changed bed sheets ,blankets and all stuff daily. The aircondition unit was new along with micro and Refrigerator.Conveniently located near 101 and downtown market. The Management staff was quite good and courteous.Eventhough there was no coffee in the morning ,we didn't mind it.,we were looking for a nice restaurant for a full breakfast.
would like to recommand this facility to the travellers,families,couples and visitors.
really worth the VALUE.

We booked this via ebookers a few months ago and it said it was a new motel and as I could not find any reviews on tripadvisor I thought it must be true. It was actually far from true - it was old, run down and truly the worst hotel experience we have ever had - all 5 minutes of it as that is as long as we stayed! I am now writing this from the safety and luxury of a comfort inn further down the road!!

Ocean View Motel is just disgusting - we took ourselves up to the room and it was so stinky we immediately opened all the windows and kept the door open. Then I inspected the bed and the sheets were dirty with hairs on it. The room was so dusty there was stuff hanging from the ceiling and there is absolutely nothing in the world that would get me to put my head on the pillows they provided. We had paid in advance and could not get any money back so just cut our losses and drove up the road towards LA a bit further where there are heaps of Comfort Inns, Days Inn etc for about $80 a night that are SO MUCH NICER - feels like the Hilton after the Ocean View Motel. Staff were also rude and smelly. Just dont stay there - EVER!!!

room was nothing special at all. pretty run down. our room wasnt as bad as previous entries but it wasnt great either. toilet set wriggled when you sat on it...that was weird. hot water, decent bed, we had just returned from camping for a night so anything seemed good. would only stay here again if was absolutely no way to get in anywhere else. definitely needs some tlc. advertised free wireless and they told us that wasnt working, we werent surprised.
