This is not for those looking for a fancy resort. It however for laid back people who love their dogs and the beach and who in general get the vibe of OB. I lived there for years and am always looking for an affordable place to stay when I go back to visit. It is close to everything, right on... More

If you love your pup, (your family too) and walks on the beach with them, this is the place. We will be back for our 8th year in a row. This is not the most luxurious of places BUT the staff is great and the location is PHENOMENAL. The accommodations are very similar to a Motel 6. You are located... More

Dogs. This place has a great location - right on the dog beach. And that truly is the only reason to stay here. Putting that aside, in terms of quality of the motel, it is truly awful. Especially for the prices they charge. If you are willing to simply make sacrifices to bring your dog, and stay at a place... More

Don't let the look fool you, the ocean villa inn was warm and welcoming, and the staff was always friendly and helpful in any way, stayed a total of 5 days and never had a problem! It's right off the beach and I could see the ocean from the patio! The parking is a little tight but was manageable! If... More

This was a quick getaway for us. Very clean room with all the essentials-fridge, microwave, decent beds. Good size room. Excellent large balcony with fine view of the lagoon. Friendly staff. Excellent location, especially if you have a dog as it is adjacent to Dog Beach. 3 great restaurants (at least) nearby-don't miss Bo Beau! Not fancy, but nothing to... More

Nirvana for dogs & their owners. Doggy gift bag at checkin. Treat jar in lobby is always full. Really nice continental bkfst (with protein-eggs). More than adequate rooms that have sliders that open up to communal dog run just for guests. Outdoor patio with table & chairs. Great beds and linens. 1 block to the greatest dog beach. Full doggy...

This is great place for dogs. It is so close to the beach. Everyone was very friendly. We got a goodie bag for him, it was a pleasant surprise. The dog beach was right around the corner. The room was cozy and clean. It's been updated from earlier reviews I've read. The bed was still a spring bed and not... More

Tile floors aren't terribly clean. Just walking around, it feels sticky and there's a lot of stuff getting stuck on your feet/socks. Towels are discolored. You can hear all of your neighbors to the side and above. Constant (like every 5-10 min) airplane noise. They have a beach access gate that is supposed to open with the key from the... More

This is a basic motel with some nice features for dog owners. Upon check-in we were given a bag with a ball, toy, and poop bags. The room itself opened onto a dog run which allowed us to sit on our patio while the dogs roamed around. You can also access the river trail to the beach through the end... More
