Location is great if you want to go to Dog Beach which was our main objective. You can tell that the hotel is on the older side and is basic. The one drawback that caused us to leave a night early was the fact that you can hear every movement of the person above you. It sounded like the couple above us was going to come through the ceiling at any minute. This caused our dog to freak out and we didn't get any sleep.

Check in was fantastic! I was greeted by a wonderful woman but I sadly forget her name. she was so nice and moved me to an upstairs room overlooking the dog beach because I said I was there to see the pups!! The outside looks dated but the inside of my room was great! It was decorated nicely and very clean. the pool is small but looked nice. If you are going for luxury this isn't for you but if you are going with dogs, or you love dogs then you will LOVE IT!!!! The location is amazing! You can walk to Newport Ave which is so fun. The beach is at your door. What more can you ask for?

The rooms look nothing like the pictures advertised. The beds were fairly comfy box springs but we couldn't shake the feeling of sleeping in possibly dirty blankets that were reused from the previous visitors. Also the shower looked very out dated and dirty but hey its only a shower so no big deal. On a positive note the staff were amazing. They were very friendly and helpful they also gave us multiple options on rooms that had a nice dog run/backyard sorta feel, a room without a dog run but it wreaked of cigarettes and finally the room we landed in. Also it was SUPER close to OB so that was a huge plus. Overall it was a 6/10 stay, would I go back maybe not but the price is reasonable for all that you get.

Usually more dogs running around outside the ground floor rooms, which me and my puppy missed this time. Still awesome that my husky can sleep inside or outside.

Perfect place for the whole family. My dog Tanner loved his new friends.

The rooms need some updating. But they are super pet friendly and the staff is very nice and accommodating.

Calm quiet friendly great location and staff cant wait to come back

Hotel is in a great location. Close to SeaWorld, close to downtown San Diego and close to Old Town. Not to mention almost right on the beach. Staff is super helpful and friendly. We had some issues with the cleaness of the bathroom when we checked in and the staff addressed it right away by sending in a cleaning crew and give it a good scrubbing. Plus we were given a discount for the first night. Great Service and great attention to our concerns.

right outside our room pet area wreaked of urine constantly - the sand out there smelled all the time and the smell would waft into the room, so we couldn't keep the door open nor was it comfortable to sit out there. THEN dogs running around all the time, wasn't safe to let my dog out dt all the big dogs. there should be fencing for each room or something!

Great location. Good price. Could update a little. Will stay again.

Location was excellent, loved the views! Skimpy towels and a horrible lack of usable outlets (1 set only - the outlet in the bathroom was blocked by the mirror frame). There was shampoo in the room, but no conditioner. Noises do carry, as previous reviews have stated. There isn't an elevator, so be prepared to carry your luggage upstairs if you're on the second floor. I'd definitely stay there again! The OB location and vibe is worth it! Breakfast ends early - 9am on weekdays - wish it ran later so we could have tried it!

The hotel itself is average but the location and the friendliness to us dog owners was amazing! The walls are incredibly thin and if you have people staying above you you don't get a whole lot of sleep. That would be my only complaint as the location is amazing!

Nice location and convenient to the beach. Rooms have been updated nicely and are clean but the beds were not very comfortable. The walls are also very thin so you can hear people in the adjoining rooms.

Although this is a dog friendly hotel we were in a no pet room. Room was clean, staff friendly. Only warning to anyone is that hotel is in the departure path from the airport, so during the day expect airport noise.
