Rooms clean, outdated but I didnt expect much. It is a very friendly dog motel afterall. Parking difficult. Views are great of the ocean and dog beach. Very relaxing. No grocery stores nearby except little marts for booze so stop and shop before you get there.

This hotel has pluses and minuses. First the plus, we have two dogs and this is a dog friendly hotel. All people with dogs are on the first floor. Each room has an outdoor patio and a dog run length of hotel. They provide a doggie bag during check in, and there is a outside dog cleaning area with shampoo... More

I loved it here. The balconys make me very happy. The ocean and bay view are gorgeous. The rooms are clean, the staff are nice. I loved the housekeepers. It's by a beach, dog and ocean beach. Which were perfect for our swimming needs. We don't have a dog and I was worried about cleanliness but that wasn't an issue... More

Steps from the beach, not just pet friendly but pet preffered, and a nice continental breakfast all at a very decent rate per night. Wonderful balcony to eat on with a beach view, full size fridge, comfy beds and friendly staff. If you are staying with a group and plan on using the couch as a bed though, it is... More

Would have been great if I actually was able to sleep. There what seemed to be crack addicts above me walking and moving furniture around upstairs until 5am. The ceilings and walls are paper thin and you can hear people talking and dogs barking all night.

I wanted to stay somewhere near the beach for a portion of my stay in San Diego, and I found this place to be one of the less expensive options. It ends up being an ok little hotel. It is older, but the rooms were still pretty comfortable. When I checked in, things went fairly well, though I did have... More

We stayed here for Labor Day weekend 2016 for the 1st time. We will definitely be back. Adequate clean room with a dog run out the slider. Minutes walk to Dog Beach where dogs can be off leash. Super courteous staff, doggie bag with toys and treats at check-in, continental breakfast is the best I've even seen. Easy walk to... More

We didn't really know what to expect, never stayed at a 2 star hotel, but it came recommended & it's reviews were ok. First of all, this is not a hotel it's a... More

When we pulled up, I was worried. They are renovating this hotel, and the outside did NOT reflect the inside. There was a bit of a snafu with our reservation, and the warm and welcoming staff bent over backwards to make our stay a pleasant one. (And again when I needed to do laundry later than the room was open,... More
