We have extra icing for the cake. Coronado is exceptionally dog friendly!

Now you can plan a vacation that includes the entire family. It wouldn’t quite be the same vacation without Fido. At the Coronado Inn, we agree! That’s why we offer pet-friendly accommodations. We aren’t the only part of the island that celebrates our furry friends either. There are multiple pet-friendly activities and spaces on the island.

To help you plan your pet-friendly, Coronado vacation, we have several activities and restaurants to get you started:

Dog Beach

Visiting Coronado and skipping out on the beach would be like baking a cake and not getting to enjoy it. Your dog should be able to enjoy the extensive shoreline as well. We let them roam leash free. It’s not a bad place to hang out for humans either. The expansive shoreline, gorgeous views of Point Loma, and soft sound of the waves in the background is hard to beat.

Coronado Dog Beach is at the northern most point of the Coronado beach, adjacent to the Naval Base. While dogs are allowed to play leash free on Dog Beach, the main beach doesn’t allow for dogs off leash. Make sure you keep your dog on a leash until you reach the signs sectioning off the two areas.

Dog-Friendly Restaurants

In Coronado we are masters of the dog-friendly patio. Even though we are a small community, we have thirteen dog-friendly patio options for you to choose from. With 70-degree temperatures all year long, you and your pup can sit out enjoying the perfect weather and charm of Orange Ave. Most restaurants have a dog water bowl on the patio. All of them serve up scrumptious human food for you to enjoy.

See a full list of all the dog-friendly restaurants.

Dog-Friendly Lodging

At Coronado Inn, we are your dog (and cat) friendly lodging of choice! We allow two furry friends per room at a $15 a night fee per pet. Located in the heart of Coronado, we are close to all the activities both you and your dog will love to do during your stay!

Should you both need to stretch your legs throughout your stay, we invite you to take a walk to enjoy the incredible architecture of the surrounding neighborhoods. For the ambitious walkers or even the joggers, we are about a mile and a half from the beach. Additionally, all the dog-friendly restaurants are just a hop skip and a jump away.
