Ocean Beach Hotel

The view from our room

If you are planning a trip to San Diego, or even if you live here and just want to get away for a night or two, check out the Ocean Beach Hotel. We stayed there last weekend and found it to be a pretty decent stay. They offer reasonable winter rates and lets face it, any time of year is a nice time in San Diego!

OB is known as a small beach community. Newport Street is the main drag where you will find a funky assortment of antique shops, thrift stores, bars and restaurants. Don't be alarmed if you see Deadheads with dreadlocks, street musicians, artists and activists, and girls in bikinis roaming the streets, they are harmless, for the most part.

While you are in OB, you must stop in for a glass of wine and a bite to eat at The Vine. We had dinner there again a couple weeks ago and it is still my favorite place for good food, beer and of course wine. Take advantage of the happy hour ALL NIGHT on Tuesdays!
