4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Room was nice and clean. Price OK for the area. AC works fine and Wi-Fi is good. Just great for dogs since you're about 500' from the Dog Beach. Kevin, the Manager was just awesome. We planned to stay 1 or 2 days and wound up staying 3. We're coming back with our 3 beagles.

At first I got what I had expected out of The cheapest hotel closest to the beach. The room was dirty, we had a bug problem, there was mold in the shower, and or AC unit was sooo loud we had trouble sleeping. None of that was even a huge issue. The issue was when we checked out. We had... More

We stayed for 3 nights with our 3 German Shepherds. The rooms attached to the dog runs were a little small for 3 big dogs, but perfect for coming to and from the beach everyday. Tile floors are a smart move! The dog wash on the property is very convenient & right next to a hotel entrance to the beach.... More

Ocean Villa was a very average hotel in a great location. Cons: One of the sliding glass doors had a broken lock--we reported it when we checked out and my impression was that they took it seriously and were going to take care of it right away. The sleeper sofa was actually a small futon and both my teens had... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the OVI. We should have all new sleeper sofas by the end of this year. I'm very sorry the kids did not sleep well. Best, Jennifer Baker Operations Manager More

We love this place and have stayed 3 times now. It by no means is a fancy hotel. You are paying for the location and dog friendly amenities. It's old and out dated but the beds are comfy and it has all you need. It's right on dog beach and walking distance to Newport Ave and restaurants. We have a... More

This place COULD be a gem, but it's NOT. It's a prime location for dog lovers who want to be as close to dog-beach as possible. That's what makes it a gem. If only the owner(s) would invest some money in renovating and refreshing the units it would probably be a bigger gold mine, than I'm sure, it is already!... More

This was our first visit to dog beach in San Diego. So much fun!! The motel is not much, but very clean. The rooms have thin walls, you can hear people upstairs, next door and of course the San Diego Airport in directly over this hotel as the planes take off. But we were there for the fun of the...

This is the place to go if you are looking for a clean place to stay at the beach that welcomes dogs. The room was spacious and clean. The pool was heated and the walking path to the beach is a botanical treat. It's an older establishment but well maintained. We will stay there again.

We spent the Memorial Day weekend in Ocean Villa Inn. We received a spacious studio which we liked very much. The hotel is on the dog beach, which our dogs enjoyed. We got a little goody bag for our dogs when we got there with toys and treats inside. We and the dogs had a blast and will definitely return!

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
