    the hotel is located right on the beach, which is awesome, the room is small, but not too bad, the only complaint, if any would be the bathroom, which really tiny. overall experience was awesome, i like the location, the restaurants are walking distance, the security was excellent, they were police patrol around the beach, hotel parking was convenient and safe, all and all, i am quite satisfied.

    Ahhh…Ocean Beach called OB by the locals. This little beach front community is a mix of old hippies, younger bar scene types, tourists and a goodly dose of homeless and underachievers. The community clings tightly to it’s history and old architecture. The OB hotel is also an old building, like pretty much every other building in OB, but the owners keep it clean. The staff was always p olite and responsive. It is easy to love this place. Location: a 30 second walk to the beautiful, lifeguarded swimming and surfing beach. A free fishing pier is maybe 100 yards away. Every imaginable kind of restaurant, boutique, bar or market is a short walk away. Musicians play for donations, Wednesday is a huge street fair and there are occasionally spontaneous marches… not really political stuff but noisy crowds singing and dancing down the street having as much fun as is legal (or maybe not legal?). This hotel isn’t really the quietest place… the activity on the street, the older construction where you hear neighbors and a little bit of barking dog noise. Did I mention dogs? So many people here have dogs! In the stores and restaurants and OB Hotel allows dogs. I must say, I don’t own a dog and I don’t object to people taking their dogs everywhere but,dang, people… pick up your dog’s poop! It wasn’t a problem in the hotel but on the streets of OB, watch your step…I’m not kidding you!!! So, OB is a cute, busy, quirky beach town and OB Hotel is right in the middle of the action. Yeah, just go

    Room was listed as full ocean view, but was only a partial view, even though we paid more for it. Otherwise it was great! Cute room and nice balcony.
