This was our second visit to this motel and it was better than the first time, with refurbished rooms and improved reception area. This motel is a great location to see most of San Diego and its right on the beach with great views. We even got to watch our first thunder and lightning experience from the balcony all the... More

My wife, dog and I had a wonderful time at the Ocean Villa Inn. That fact that we could get a room at the beach for under $200 was amazing enough, the fact that they cater to dogs was incredible! Our dog was able to run free and socialize with other dogs right outside our room in the dog run.... More

If you are looking for a five star luxury hotel, then no, this is not the place for you. But, if you like traveling everywhere with your dogs like we do, this place is perfect! We have a large Great Dane-and finding a hotel that accepts dogs over 40 pounds, much less finding one that accepts one that is almost... More

We stayed at Ocean Villa in August for two nights. It was our first time to Ocean Beach and our first time traveling with our 2 dogs. We wanted to be close to the dog beach which this hotel was perfectly located. We had a hard time choosing between Ocean Villa and Ocean Beach hotel, however we ended up staying... More

We decided on a last minute trip to San Diego and came up with this facility thru Trip Advisor. It was not a mistake, the room we booked was very economical and worth every cent that we paid for. We have a Westie and a Shitzu-poodle and our dogs really had a great time at the dog beach, which is... More

For humans, I have to say that this is basically on par with some roadside motel. Room was very basic. Beds were squeaky and not comfortable. TV was old. A/C was one of those window units. No bathtub, just a very small shower with a flimsy shower curtain. There was a daddy longlegs spider in the top corner of the... More

We wanted to see the ocean as soon as we could so after a few turns we ended up right in front of Ocean Villa Inn. We own dogs but didn't have any with us. Got one of the few rooms left and didn't even look at it first. We were so pleasantly surprised. It was very, very clean. Extremely... More
