Landmark Ocean Park Inn In Pacific Beach Unveils Phase Two Of Property-Wide Renovation

Ocean Park Inn (OPI), a family-owned and operated hotel celebrating 30 years in the heart of Pacific Beach, is now open after a year-long property-wide renovation. The beachfront hotel, ideally situated on the iconic Pacific Beach boardwalk just steps from the sand, has unveiled a refreshed exterior, pool deck and lounge area as part of the second phase of a property-wide renovation.

‘Mid-century meets the beach’ vibe

Set to flow with the property’s ‘mid-century meets the beach’ vibe, the building exterior has a new look echoing the interior enhancements brought to life by Los Angeles-based bespoke interior architectural design firm, Clear on Black.

The newly transformed pool deck encompasses an abstract mid-century pattern made of recycled rubber and features crisp white sun loungers with teak accents to complete the clean, modern aesthetic. The hotel has also introduced a new brand aesthetic and website to reflect the community and underlying mid-century tiki theme.

Family-owned and operated since 1967

The Lai family has operated the landmark hotel since 1967, introducing the Ocean Park Inn brand and its current location in 1991.

“Our reopening has been greatly anticipated, but we are ready and extremely excited to welcome back our loyal guests and to share our stunning new home away from home,” said CEO and President Elvin Lai. “We have been known for our impeccable service over the last 30 years and now our hospitality is matched with a youthful vibrancy inspired by the history and ambiance of the surrounding Pacific Beach community.”

Local artists featured

The phase three lobby enhancements are slated to be unveiled in May 2021 and will showcase contributions from local artists including an art installation by Randall Engstrom of Randall’s Sandals, ocean-inspired tabletops by Brett Olson of Wave Surface, and a walking tour of Pacific Beach by photographer John Cocozza.

The fourth and final phase of the renovation is set for 2022 and will include a long-awaited guest-only surf and tiki-inspired cocktail pool bar.
