The molecule of the title compound, $C_{11}H_9NO_3$, a pharmacologically important quinoline derivative, adopts an overall planar shape. The structure is stabilized by an intramolecular $O—H...O=C$ hydrogen bond, forming an S(6) hydrogenbonded ring pattern. The $O—H...O=C$ interaction results in delocalization of the electron density within the dihydropyridine ring, as observed for resonance-assisted hydrogen bonds, leading to lengthening of the carbonyl O=C and pyridyl C=C bonds, and shortening of the C—OH bond in this hydrogen-bonded S(6) ring structure. The cooperative intermolecular $N—H...O$ hydrogen bonds cluster molecules into closed dimers, characterized by an $R^2_2(8)$ ring pattern. Aromatic–aromatic stacking interactions are also observed in the packing, with an interplanar distance of 3.352 \AA and a slippage of 1.855 \AA.
