Ocean Beach Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location except for the homeless that congregate across the street. Beware that room 301 has an AC unit right next to the bed that blows in your face. Others in our group did not have that issue.

The place needs to be updated. We wanted to sleep with the window open, but there was no screen. Then we figured out that the window didn't lock and a person could slide open the window and come into our room at any time.

This is where we stay 2 of our 3 trips to OB. Great view, walking distance, park the car and walk and enjoy the view

Perfect location. Room had no sound proofing. Next door resident can be heard snoring at night. Airport is close by, planes are flying out all night. Very hard to get a good night sleep.

This place was awesome! Yes there is an Amtrak train that runs behind the hotel thankfully I asked for a room the face the front of the hotel and it was perfect! If you need to clean quiet pleasant place to stay in Oceanside I highly recommend this hotel you wont be disappointed!

We only stayed 1 out of the 3 nights we booked, the hotel and views you can view on site when booking are not the same views of what it currently looks like, misleading. Neighborhood does not feel safe, we had my 11yr old daughter with and we left because of this. Our plan was to take advantage of the beach but it is so run down and full of homeless, skin heads, and just people that left you feeling uncomfortable we chose to leave and book elsewhere where there was more for my daughter to take advantage of and more sense of safety and security. It just wasn't the place for us to stay at.

Nice rooms, comfortable beds, great shops and food

It was great little hotel in a amazing location. Rooms were fine, and there is washer and dryer.

Room only hotel, great location. Bathroom and shower old and dated.

Enjoyed staying at this hotel. Great location. No elevators to second floor rooms. And no coffee makers in room, but coffee served in lobby. Staff very nice and hrlpful.

Nice hotel but hard to sleep--tv in the next room on for hours, and voices too easy to hear. Great location.

Stayed three nights and couldn't be in a more central location. A lot of noise late into the night. Thin walls!

Grumpy guy at desk, windows needed cleaning. Otherwise clean and beautiful courtyard.

Location, location, location! If you are all about the beach - this is a great spot. The Ocean Beach Pier is very close and a great place to walk.

Was clean and well maintained bit and was cozy in their court yard to sit and relax. This is a great hotel in a great spot accross from the ocean

Stayed on the 3rd floor for one night. Room had very strong smell of bleach, little unbearable at first. It was small for 2 but okay for 1 night. No view from the room, until you go outside but below in the courtyard people were always smoking & little dogs were always barking. Way too many homeless people crowded the town and along the boardwalk, it reeked of urine everywhere. Didn't spend time on the beach, too small, dirty & crowded. prices. clean, but expensive, . Its a small town, very crowded and dirty.

We loved staying at Ocean Beach Hotel. It was centrally located and right on the beach. We loved that outsiders could not travel through the courtyard area. We also liked the outside shower in the courtyard to get sand off your feet.

Very friendly staff. Great experience. Wish they had more outdoor seating overlooking the ocean perhaps on the upper levels for those not fortunate enough to get a room with an ocean view

It' was amazing for me and my boyfriend to spend a day near the beach

The staff was friendly, facility was worth the price

close to beach but not worth the money
