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!

Certainly one of the most dog friendly places at which we've ever stayed, and the location right on the fantastic dog beach at Ocean Beach could not be better. This is a casual, cost friendly alternative--basically an older, two level beach motel property of 1970s vintage (a guess). But while the property is older and would not in and of... More

So I ended up having a bad experience at another hotel and switching to this hotel. Boy am I glad I did. Traveling with your dog is never easy but this is the best place my dog and I have ever stayed. The floor was all tile which even though we didn't have any accidents it gave me some reassurance...

This is not the fanciest, but it you want to travel with your dogs and give them a fun time also, it is fantastic! We stayed upstairs a few times long ago before they remodeled and no longer allow dogs on the second floor. It is beautiful up there! However, with Dog Beach right there we're satisfied with the ground... More

This was the first hotel trip we had ever taken with our dog, but I saw it on Groupon and decided it was worth a try. First of all, the location couldn't be any better if you are traveling with a dog (so I gave it an average rating when I would have otherwise given it a poor). It sits... More

Thank you for reviewing the OVI. We appreciate your feedback. We're making lots of improvements and one of them being better insulation/sound proofing between our upstairs and downstairs rooms.

If you're looking for a nice place right on the beach that is pet-friendly, look no further than the Ocean Villa Inn in Ocean Beach. It's located at the entrance to Dog's Beach, so you know this place is super dog-friendly. I've stayed here a number of times, and even saw guests with cats and birds, so this hotel does... More
