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

Loved it! Going back again in 11 days.. clean room, amazing view, can walk everywhere from OB Villa.. Very friendly staff, hard to find these days. I'm hooked! Right off the beach and pet friendly. . Only place I'll stay now.

We had high hopes judging from the website, but comments from previous reviewers that the photos are far nicer than the property are true. The place is dumpy and lacks even basic sound proofing. We heard every television, creaking bed and WORSE above our heads. Our room (which they laughingly called a suite) was dark, the bathroom shower needed to... More

First off, we had never stayed in Ocean Beach so we weren't familiar with the area. We had three small dogs traveling with us so a dog friendly area was a must. The photos for The Ocean Villa Inn must of been taken in a different room then we had. I was expecting more of a boutique style room but... More

The place is a 1960's throwback. It is fairly clean and open to pets. The main floor rooms can't see the water because of an elevated walkway, but the upper rooms are open to decent views of the water. The main room floors are the ones open to pets. I didn't know and would have preferred a second floor room.... More

Thank you for staying with us and for reviewing the OVI. I am very sorry you did not receive housekeeping service during your stay. We provide daily housekeeping service to all rooms. If there is a pet in the room the guest must call to let us know when they leave so the room attendant can enter and clean the... More

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
