This is best location you will find if you are taking your dogs on a vacation to San Diego's famed Dog Beach. It's located right at the entrance to the beach and the bike path. This is a no-frills, mid-century motel with parking just outside the doors to the first floor, dog friendly rooms and a small pool between the... More

My husband and I prefer to take our pup with us when we vacation but it's so hard to find a truly dog friendly hotel, especially one that doesn't have a weight limit. Ocean Villa Inn is a dog friendly as it gets! No weight restriction, reasonable pet fee, and a 2 minute walk to dog beach. They welcomed our... More

So you are in a like minded place with people who love dogs. The staff is beyond helpful and so friendly. I... More

This was the first time we have stayed at the Ocean Villa Inn. We brought our three dogs and weren't sure what to expect. For a little more money I chose a suite and it did not disappoint. I have never had such a large hotel room which made it very comfortable for the five of us. There were two... More

This was our second visit to this motel and it was better than the first time, with refurbished rooms and improved reception area. This motel is a great location to see most of San Diego and its right on the beach with great views. We even got to watch our first thunder and lightning experience from the balcony all the... More

My wife, dog and I had a wonderful time at the Ocean Villa Inn. That fact that we could get a room at the beach for under $200 was amazing enough, the fact that they cater to dogs was incredible! Our dog was able to run free and socialize with other dogs right outside our room in the dog run.... More

If you are looking for a five star luxury hotel, then no, this is not the place for you. But, if you like traveling everywhere with your dogs like we do, this place is perfect! We have a large Great Dane-and finding a hotel that accepts dogs over 40 pounds, much less finding one that accepts one that is almost... More

We stayed at Ocean Villa in August for two nights. It was our first time to Ocean Beach and our first time traveling with our 2 dogs. We wanted to be close to the dog beach which this hotel was perfectly located. We had a hard time choosing between Ocean Villa and Ocean Beach hotel, however we ended up staying... More
