Room was smaller then I thought it would be since their was a queen and a twin size bed in our room. We were located on the second floor which really wasn't an issue but due to the fact that we had our dog (3 mos. old) it was a bit of a hassle getting him up and down for...

Very small but had everything we needed for a family of 4. Loud train every hour or so but that added to our city experience. Two blocks from the beach and about 2 miles from the SF Zoo. We ate at the Ocean Beach Brewery 1 mile away. Highly recommended

Loved this charming, cozy, Art Deco motel! My boyfriend has been here before and the prices are very reasonable for the area. Walking distance to the zoo, the beach, and restaurants. Public transportation is readily available. Would return and recon to anyone.

We've stayed at the Ocean Park Motel twice now and are dying to get back. The location is within walking distance of some great restaurants, and is a lovely place for a morning run if you are a runner! Our hotel host gave us wonderful suggestions of places to eat, places to visit, and helped make our trip to San...

We stayed in a two-room suite on business for two nights in summer and it was very comfortable. A nice breakfast and coffee (and soft-serve) shop two blocks away, and a pizza place next door to that. Not much out by the zoo besides that but it was only $15 to Uber to downtown for dinner (cheaper than parking). Large,...

Compact, beautiful property with well maintained rooms. Convenient location. Had a couple minor glitches, addressed promptly and courteously. Hot tub under renovation, courtyard lawn cordoned off - nice features when they're reopened.

Stayed for pleasure in the middle of May. 3 people Wife, husband and older daughter. We rented a 2 room with a kitchen. The two rooms were small but gave us the separation to allow the daughter to have a room to herself. The kitchen made for a place to sit for breakfast and have a cup of coffee without...

A serene gem near Ocean Beach. Clean and comfortable, run by real people who lovingly care for property and guests. Looking forward to next time we visit when we can use hot tub! Grateful to know that personal touch is still possible in corporatized San Francisco. We love SF'S best remaining haven for travelers. Thank you Mark, Jack, and all...

I love vintage motels and this being the first motel in San Francisco was all I had hoped it would be. Great neon sign and charming streamlined modern style rooms with vintage tile and kitchenettes. Great location by the zoo and beach as well as being affordable. If you prefer chain motels this is not for you. It was like...

Cute place although the room decor was extremely dated. Friendly staff and good location especially if your kids are at SF State. The water pressure on the 2nd floor was awful and it took about 3 minutes for the water to heat up. There are signs posted not to take showers lasting longer than 5 minutes and I was concerned...
