I like this place because it is dogs friendly and step away from the beach and walking distance to many restaurants. It's not a four stars hotel but it is perfect if you are traveling with dogs. The room size is pretty big. It has microwave, mini fridge, heated pool and free wifi.

It's not a 5-star hotel so don't expect that, but after leaving the 5-star hotel just up the road where my family was staying, we were thrilled to find ourselves at Ocean Villa Inn. The price was an absolute steal. The rooms large and very comfortable and clean. The balcony overlooking the beach was incredible and the location couldn't be... More

Below average rooms but exceptional location and pet amenities. Right on the beach (near Dog Beach). Walking distance to shops, restaurants and pier. With the exception of one of the managers calling the police on me for parking my RV in the street (they said when I made the reservation that it was OK), the rest of the staff were... More

We stayed here to attend my Niece's wedding as we were traveling with our 2 dogs. The listing sounded ideal as not only were canines allowed but were pampered with access to a dog friendly beach just outside the property line, but also with fenced in areas behind the motel where they could run in addition to a doggie wash...

I had booked a room at Ocean Villa Inn for a weekend getaway. Since I was bringing my dog, I needed a ‘Pet Friendly’ place. This place has non-pet rooms for those patrons looking for a stay in Ocean Beach for its restaurants and night life, and those patrons that brings their pets to enjoy the ‘Dog Beach’ which is...

Spent my weekend here with my two dogs. I like this place a lot. There's a walking path to dogs beach. Would definitely stay here again. Room was clean with hair dryer and iron board. Microwave oven and fridge are also provided in the suite room.

This hotel is just awesome. They are friendly both to customers and dogs. The proximity to the dog beach is excellent and those of us who think our dogs are an important part of the family couldn't have found a better place. The cacti around the place were beautiful. We collect cactus so it was a special treat to see... More

I did not stay here but I did take a tour of the facility and of the rooms. It is located on Dog Beach. The lower floors have a fenced-in dog run to let the pups out. They have a large grass play area as well. The hotel overlooks the inlet but is right next to the beach. The place... More

Spent 3 days with our 2 Dobies. Great time. Yes, rooms could use an update, but this place caters to dogs. Dogs are messy so a place that caters to them can't be impeccable. Those who are critical, go to the Westin and get real. Anyway, easy access to the huge dog beach. We all had a great time. No... More

While understanding it is a place that allows dogs, I still believe this is one of the worst places I have ever stayed at. The room smelled bad. The air conditioner was very loud. Our choices were limited to keeping A/C off and be too hot or be kept awake all night by noisy A/C. The bad smell in the... More
