The area is full of good restaurants and shopping. A long pier for a nice walk, street fair-Farmers market on Wednesday afternoon. The sounds of the surf through my window. Just perfect!

The sounds of the waves put me to sleep. There is a very long pier a few steps away. Little shops and restaurants within walking distance. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Balcony rooms have incredible views

Pros: Best location in Ocean Beach
Cons: Ice and vending (stocked) on every floor
Let me start by saying that the room was really clean, bed was comfortable and the view was incredible. Now for the reality, no elevator, so it is a lug your luggage up kind a place. Room was much smaller than pictures show (2 people max in the queen with a balcony). A wine cooler does not replace a refrigerator and no microwave. Ocean Beach is a community and not a tourist area. You can't get to the others beaches without transportation. Because it is a beach community, the homeless are afoot at all times. They are not aggressive but their presences is known. Yes I would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to surf as the waves are awesome but this is not a beach for really walking for pleasure

Paying to be close to the beach

It was like being in two places at once. In the day it was so nice with the beach across the street. And many bars, restaurants and shops to go to. But at night the homeless were a problem. Harassing people as they walked by. I won't be going back.

Not a good experience

Cons: An effective and actionable noise policy. Heaters that don't cause aural damage. Clean rooms. Sufficient accoutrements in rooms.
I suspect the hotel chose the leaf-blower decibel AC/heating unit to try to mask the yelling and swearing that comes through the paper thin walls. We were woken nightly by yelled obscenities, arguing and loud music. When asked, the night staff member would go and try to quiet people down, but it was clearly ineffective. The bathroom was not clean, there were no extra blankets in the room and the deafening heater stopped working partway through one night. Would never stay in this hotel again.

Pros: Location, great food nearby.
Cons: Redo the walls.
Location: Across the street from the Pacific Ocean, restaurants, bars, shopping. Easy access to public transportation. Great farmers market on Wednesday.
I booked a suite, so my reviews are based on the suite. First off, the location is amazing. Right next to food, entertainment, and the beach! The hotel staff was very pleasant. My room was quite nice. Recently updated, good size. The balcony suite has two large windows plus a balcony. The room itself was clean. There was some paint peeling off the wall in the bathroom, but it gave it character in my opinion. The beds were old but had a nice memory foam topper, which was delightful. A couple things that would have been nice are a microwave in the room, as well as an extra blanket so I didn't have to take the one off the extra bed. All in all, I would definitely stay here again. Also, if you're here on a Wednesday, the local farmer's market is amazing!
