Located directly on the beach, in the heart of OB, steps from the sand, from amazing cuisine, and all of the shopping on Newport Avenue and Abbott Street. Many of our guests park the car in our private hotel parking lot for free and never move the car again because everything from sunbathing and surfing to craft beer-drinking and burger-eating is within walking distance of the hotel. Ocean Beach is also centrally located with SeaWorld less than 5 minutes away and only 15 minutes from the San Diego Zoo, San Diego Airport, and Downtown.

    Basic lodging with great location

    Ocean Beach Hotel is a nice, clean place to stay right on the beach. The room itself was small, but it had all the necessities (including a fridge!) and the staff was super friendly. You'll have to walk about 10 mins to get to the dog-friendly portion of the beach, but it's not bad at all. The only downside of the hotel being so close to everything is that it can be pretty loud in the evenings. If you're a light sleeper or if outside noise bothers your pup, this probably isn't the greatest place to stay.

    Could use a few dog amenities

    We had a great view and Rosie loved the patio. BUT no place to wash dog after day at dog beach. Also room shower did not have a removable handle showerhead so impossible to rinse off dog. Only a few pet friendly rooms with tiny bathrooms. No freezer in fridge, no microwave in room. Had to bring food to office to heat. Only about 3-4 blocks to walk to dog beach. Could use a fire pit in courtyard at night. Nice staff.

    Love this Hotel!

    We wanted to stay here to visit the famous dog beach. The location was very close to dog beach. Relaxed hippie vibe. Nice beach side enclosed patio. You don't have to move your car once here as everything is nearby. There is a noise modulator on night stand to ensure restful sleep!

    We reserved a room and once we got on site, we did not feel comfortable, we felt unsafe and we requested a refund. The female staff person stated they would give a refund. When BringFido called this hotel, the MALE staff person refused the refund. We never used the room and was only there to take out our dogs and decided to leave. The male staff person was EXTREMELY RUDE, and I would NEVER recommend this place. Extremely very disappointed in this transaction. We were out $325.00 for NOT even staying there. We stayed at a beautiful place right off the ocean bay for $200. per night. This place was a 10 + star... Ocean Beach A NEGATIVE 10 !!!!

    So disappointing

    I had booked a room for our anniversary and we were planning on bringing our small terrier. Reservation went smooth and I was able to book through BringFido. Two days later I’m emailed that they can no longer accommodate my request and if I wanted a pet friendly room I had to pay an additional $68 on top of the $220 I had already paid. we had taken so long to find the perfect hotel near the perfect beach near the perfect restaurants only for them to do this. so disappointing so I was forced to cancel since I think it’s ridiculous to be charged so much for something I had already booked.

    Nice location

    Small but clean. Felt safe. Our dog is large and insisted on sleeping on the bed so queen size not quite large enough. Not too far from dog beach. Fun to bring our dog with us

    Noisy Spot. Just Okay.

    Not a good nights rest.
    One night in San Diego and I mistakenly didn’t do enough research. This hotel is in a very noisy,active neighborhood. (COVID caution) I was looking for a peaceful place to relax, with ocean views and was disappointed in what I paid for. I would not stay here again.

    The pros: very friendly hostess. They do their best to make your stay comfortable. Pet friendly and be warned, ground floor only. I didn’t see this posted when I book and it makes a difference. In times of COVID, this hotel does seem to be making good efforts at keeping everyone safe and healthy.

    The cons: my ocean view front room looked out over a parking lot. Cars and trucks blocked any limited view I may have had. Sitting on the patio, passerby’s see you and engage in conversation. I didn’t feel safe with such close street level access to my room. I wish I hadn’t paid for this upgrade as I choose to walk across the street instead of using said patio. An upper level balcony would have been much better.

    Hotel rooms are not comfortable, quiet, or relaxing. Very thin walls and noisy. You hear every step and conversation of people walking by. It’s not a quiet night. Bedding is not plush, as I would expect given the price for an upgraded room. The bed frame is wobbly. The pillows feel inflated with air. Thin bedding that feels like I’m sleeping under sheets alone.

    Room fixtures are rusting. The phone and television didn’t work. No coffee pot in the room. Limited black out curtains let in light from the courtyard. It’s hard to get a good nights rest here.

    In full transparency, the front desk tried to get my television working and was very kind and apologetic. But at the end of the day, if you’re wanting to relax in bed and watch a show, that was not my experience. I had to stand to get the remote to work. Manually turn the TV on/off from the back of the unit. Not the worst thing in the world but it’s also not how I wanted to spend a relaxing evening.

    Great location, decent room...

    Great Location, cool hotel, friendly front desk staff... some of the cleaning crew need to wear their masks, but other than that 4 stars out of 5. I would recommend - pending you get a nice room. Stayed here 2 times, the second time was not as good of an experience as the first and left much to be desired.

    Great location!

    We were greeted very warmly. Room was very clean. Beach across street. Dog beach was within walking distance. Our dog had best time ever at this dog beach! Lots of great food in area we were able to walk to everything. Lots of dog friendly restaurants here. Courtyard was clean and pretty. Tables available in courtyard and positioned to see beach. Room basic. Our small dog fit nicely- I saw a lot of big dogs here so perhaps our room was one of the smaller ones. Check room details carefully if more space is needed. That said- we were very happy with our stay.
