The location was great, a short walk to everything you could possibly need to get to within the gaslamp district but far enough from the railway area that you weren't constantly hearing trains and trams.

I love the location and the whimsical nature of things. I love the dogs everywhere and how much this whole neighborhood caters to them. The only big complaint I have is that one of the beds in room 44 was extremely uncomfortable and I woke up with cricks in my back and neck. It was really springy ...

Pools were beautiful, as is the tropical feel of the property. We also enjoyed the Firefly and the fire tables as well. We never felt rushed. The tropical scenery and Mission Bay walkway was also pleasant.

Family Friendly San Diego Hotels

With its many parks, beaches, and open spaces, San Diego is definitely a pet-friendly destination. There are so many places to bring your pet that you will not be able to cover them all on one trip, so here is a list of some of the best for you to choose from.

Fun places to take your pet in San Diego (CA)

While there is no lack of beaches in San Diego, only a few of them have designated off-leash dog areas. Take your pet to the Ocean Beach Dog Beach, Mission Bay Fiesta Island, Coronado North Beach Dog Run, and Del Mar Dog Beach to let them run loose.

In total, there are around 15 off-leash dog parks in the city, but most interesting are probably Morley Field Dog Park and Nate’s Point as they are both located in the popular Balboa Park. This is the largest urban park in North America boasting no less than 17 museums, eight gardens, and a zoo. There are also different recreational areas, performing arts centers, and restaurants on offer. Admittance of pets is up to the discretion of each of these places.

One activity that is specifically geared toward pet owners is SUP Pups Paddleboarding. The company of the same name teaches you how to stand-up paddleboard while allowing you to take your pet along for the ride. Do you prefer land over water? Then, get a rental car and drive up to Mission Trails Regional Park, where you can find 40 miles of free hiking trails as well as sights such as the Old Mission Dam. Climbing the almost 1,600-feet high Cowles Mountain can be a bit of a challenge. However, the view at the top is certainly worth it.
