Is this a good, all around reel for general ocean fishing?
I am looking for a reasonably priced spinning reel that will be able to catch surface fish (kelp bass, calico bass). I also want it to be able to do some deep (150 to 300 feet) fishing for rock cod or California sculpin (so I don't have to change my rod and reel). Is this a good choice, and which model would suffice? 5000 or 6000?

Depends on the line size you will be using. I use the 8000 for shark and load 300yrds. of 40lb p-line on it. So far it's been a good reel.
Yes, for general ocean fishing I recommend
a 4000 or 5000 size.

I have a 5000 I use to catch smaller sharks. I usually fish flats so I have never tried using it that deep. I'd maybe go for the 6000 since your fishing so deep.
