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

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

What a view from our balcony of the ocean and dog park! We were very happy with our room! Very comfortable! The king size bed was a little squeaky but comfortable. We really enjoyed the balcony, having coffee and our meals watching the dogs play at the dog park. The view from our room was fantastic. We were upstairs and... More

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
