All was fine except we had some issues with the TV, at times, it wouldn't power up, had to hit power multiple times - some kind of issue with server (not remote control batteries). We were very surprised by the number of homeless hanging around on beach walk....

Loved the view from our room and the balcony. Was so nice to sit and listen to the waves! Easy access to the ocean was very convenient with a 1 and 1/2 year old

Nice staff, pretty worn hotel.

Pros: Great location. Oceanfront room with great scenery!
Cons: Updating inside starting with nicer paint job throughout. Was sort of dreary and depressing.
Location: Location was best part. Lots of homeless folks but no begging. Good food and people watching. Location not a problem. Cool vibe outside.
Staff was very nice and helpful. First room had horrific odor and we were promptly moved to another room. Hotel looks beautiful from the boardwalk, but pretty dated inside. Lots of unfortunate people in the area, but they don't bother anyone. Kind of a dreary vibe. Could stand some nice, warmer paint and updating and it could be as nice inside as it appears from outside!

Great Location on the Beach

We had a great time! The Ocean Park Inn is on the boardwalk and across from the beach. There is alot of action in this area, great restaurants and bars near by. The staff was very nice and we look forward to staying here again!

Great Hotel right on Pacific Beach!

Pros: Great location, family friendly, decent continental breakfast.
Cons: The chairs on the balcony aren't very comfortable. I would buy some comfortable chairs if I owned this hotel.
Location: Fantastic location. Many bars and restaurants nearby. The boardwalk is right out the back door!
This is a wonderful hotel right on Pacific Beach. It's worth getting an Ocean-view room. The continental breakfast is pretty decent, Belgian waffles, hard boiled eggs, bagels, fresh fruit and cereal. OPI is in a fantastic location, and a great place to stay when visiting San Diego.

Right on the beach

Our experience with ocean park inn was great from the check in with Avi throughout the stay with Barbara. They were very helpful and we had partial oceanview room that you could hear the waves crashing but yet it was quiet on the Balcony. We also did the Baja Border Tour (West Barba) which was great and not affiliated with the hotel but the guide picked us up at the door. Everything with the hotel is good from low end food places to higher end. We would stay here again.

Exceeded My Expectations!

Cons: The only thing that I believe could use improvement would be the chairs on the balcony and the loungers at the pool. They were very uncomfortable.
I am a single woman and travel alone. I asked the staff to put me on the third floor and paid extra for an oceanfront room. I have worked in the hotel industry myself so I was very pleased when they not only put me on the third floor but also close to the elevator. My room was large and spacious, the balcony gave me a magnificent view of the beautiful ocean, the bed was perfect. There were plenty of towels, extra pillows and my room was exceptionally clean. The staff...they were magnificent! Anytime I approached the front desk, everyone greeted me with a smile. I was treated like I mattered! They were not only kind and professional but very knowledgeable about the area. I have now found my favorite hotel in San Diego and will definitely return many times in the future. Thank you to the staff for making my stay in San Diego exceptional!
