We stayed here because it was close to the beach. Clean and maintained well. Near small eateries and bars. Beaches were close and service was great. Would stay again, took a shot in the dark and it was a success!

We didn't care for this hotel at all but our friends liked being right next to the dog beach. The jets in the morning were going right over the place - and lots of them. If you want to sleep in - don't go. If you want to be right on the beach - consider it, but I would ask... More

This hotel is the best value around! It is on the beach with an awesome view of the sunset and within walking distance of many great eats and shopping. The longest cement pier on coast is also within walking distance as is a family beach. It is a modest room for a great price. The staff was very helpful and... More

The room itself was a decent size and the bed acceptably comfortable. The staff was great and they seem to be trying hard to keep the place updated and in good repair. The jets flying over can be annoying, however San Diego does have a no-take-off rule in effect from 11:30 pm to 6:30 am, so that helps. However, if... More

We were nervous booking a hotel on the beach over spring break but really enjoyed our stay. Yes, there is noise, but nothing crazy. We are from the east coast so we also had early bedtimes our first night or two. Dogs everywhere but you wouldn't know it. Trail right behind hotel takes you beach, pier, food. Always am happy...

This is a pet- friendly motel. Don't judge a book by it's cover - outside is a little run- down, but the rooms are clean. Staff very nice and accommodating. Downstairs rooms have tile floors (great for dogs) and a patio opening onto a fenced in grassy area for the dogs. Also right adjacent to a dog beach! Beds comfy.... More

While the location (to dog beach) and the staff (friendliness) are excellent., if you are not too fussy it's a good place. Nearby restaurants ? . There's one about 21/2 blocks away OB Noodle House. Seems to be a college kid hangout. However, I love oriental food and this is a Vietnamese (Asian) food place. So I tried it. Loved... More

For dogs? I give this place a 5! My girls LOVED it here. A short walk away to the dog beach and they give you a cute little complimentary doggie treat bag. They let you leave your dog alone in the room as well if you wanted to go out to dinner or whatever for a couple hours which was... More

We just checked in yesterday and I'm totally in love with this hotel. If you're travelling with a dog this is the place to stay. There are doggie treats at checkin, a dog run when you open your patio door, and a huge dog friendly beach to romp on next door. Breakfast was a nice plus this morning and everyone... More

This was my second time staying here. Both times have been great. Staff is friendly and quick. Breakfast they provided was much more than I expected which was nice. I will stay here again in the future! Everything is in walking distance including the beach!
