We recently stayed here with two 100-lb dogs. Room was immaculate, floors (all tile) sensible for situation. Sliding glass doors give access to (tidy) areas for dogs to do their thing. Most of the staff, especially house-keeping, and Lidia and Kevin up front, were fantastic. Jen could use some training in people-interaction. The wi-fi system is the worst I have... More

The best thing about this place is the location. It's right across from the beach, and if you have dogs or love dogs, you will appreciate the dog-friendly policy and the fact that you're steps away from the dog-friendly beach. The room itself was decorated in an eclectic, sparse style. There wasn't even a chair or desk inside. The balcony... More

It may not be the fanciest Hotel around but a great little hidden gem for dog lovers. Right on Dog Beach in San Diego. The room was clean with tiles floors, great for sandy feet and wet dogs. They have an adorable dog wash and you receive a great little doggie gift bag at check in that included toys, poop... More

Stayed here while visiting friends in Ocean Beach. Located right next to a beach dog park. Fun to see the dogs running and enjoying the beach. Hotel also accepts dogs. Staff was very pleasant and friendly. Parking is easy. Reasonable rates.

This IS NOT a boutique hotel as it has been portrayed. It is an okay place if you must travel with your pet. The floors are all tile which is great and the first floor leads out to a fenced-in dog area. The downside is not all dog owners clean up after their pets. And since you are on the... More

Best dog beach ever, no leashes and fetch in the ocean. Many of the restaurants are dog friendly as well. If your pup is your family, you will be back................... Hotel is basic but clean and relaxed. The staff was very friendly

The building has 2 stories built around '60. A classic motel style. You park right by your room. , one block from ocean beach, where mission bay begins. Rooms are spacious, hardwood floor, nice touch by beach since you will track in sand. Pet friendly. Lower floor reserved for dogs, they have a nice grass area on the ground floor.... More

OK...you gotta do your homework. If you are expecting the Ritz Carlton for $119 with Pacific Ocean view and right on the beach, move along. We only were able to spend one night but would have stayed longer if we had the time. We had a very clean queen on the second story. Private balconey. Great view of the channel... More
