I will preface this review by saying that I am a dog owner and I do think it's nice that this hotel offers the ability to stay somewhere with your dog. However, I found this place to be more like a motel that looks better in the photos online than it does in person. My boyfriend wanted to take me... More

Check-in was fast and easy. Room was basic, but clean. If you aren't a dog lover or are sensitive to noise, this might not be the best place for you. We could hear every step our upstairs neighbor took, all night long.... Heated pool, great location with tons of places nearby for food. Very simple breakfast in the morning next... More

Just wanted to quickly say that despite reviews that mention concerns about noise from dog owners, I had absolutely no issues at this hotel. It was a fantastically cheap and well-located hotel, in the heart of OB, with friendly staff and clean comfortable rooms.

I love Ocean Beach and was very happy to find such a great place for our dog's first trip to the ocean. The staff and other guests were friendly and extremely helpful. The motel is as eclectic as Ocean Beach is. The rooms are basic and as we travel a lot I have learned to take my own sheets, comforter... More

Dog run feature was nice, but dogs were not monitored by owners. Noise from neighbors resulted in startled dogs and a sleepless night. Dated furniture, great location but would not go back. Lock on sliding door needed to be checked and bolt didn't work at all.

This hidden gem in Ocean Beach, San Diego, CA is a must for dog lovers on vacation or short getaway. The staff is awesome, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the beach, specifically set aside for dogs to run off leash, is a stone's throw from the property. There's even a grassy area for dog walking if your furry... More

Ocean Villa, from top to bottom, is dog-friendly, so not surprisingly, you get a lot of dogs there. That means the dogs may bark when they encounter one another. On this trip we did not bring our dogs, because we wanted to see what the place was like without the distraction. We would definitely go back. The room was a... More
