0.14km from The Black BeadPros: ok...so not everything is bad about this hotel. I mean, the views from the ocean view rooms with balcony are amazing. They have a terrace area on each of the 3 floors which makes a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee or dinner and watch the ocean and surfers. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. They offer free parking and a refrigerator in the room. Cons: During our 3 day stay, there was a man found stabbed underneath the Ocean Beach Pier, 2 ambulances called for fights/victims of the fights, and a car literally racing around the parking lot at 5:00am trying to chase and kill the other homeless people who they apparently had a problem with while those in the parking lot that normally live there we’re trying to hit the car with garbage cans and/or other objects to either antagonize or deter them..hard to tell. Police were literally out there at least 3-4 times per day (maybe more since we wouldn’t have seen them while out for the day). In room phone did not work. When I tried to dial 911 for the car trying to chase and kill people in the parking lot across the street, I found out there was no dial tone and it didn’t work. I was able to call from my cell phone though:) I called the front desk later to let them know. They never did fix it so maybe it’s something they were already aware of? Partying INSIDE the hotel is HUGE!!! So, if you’re planning to sleep, hope you have a VERY high tolerance to loud noises, yelling and dogs barking. No coffee maker and honestly, early in the morning, I didn’t feel comfortable going out by myself to go find coffee. During the daytime it’s a bit better since there are more people around and the people who live on the beach kind of calm down a bit. It’s sad really. (Also, no microwave) There are probably quite a few people living there on the beach that could use some mental health services. No elevator for luggage. Third floor was fine for me because we only had a carry on and backpack, but if you are older or have a family, that could be a problem. For the price they charge per room per night, I expected a much better experience overall.
