Really enjoyed staying at the Holiday Inn Oceanside! The staff was all so friendly and enthusiastic about what they were doing. The rooms were not what I expect from a Holiday Inn - spacious, modern, and amazing how clean they were. Thanks to my housekeeping, I think her name was Maricela - I couldn't find a single thing wrong in... More

Arrived in from a 14 hr flight from Australia and stopped at oceanside for our first night. We were 4 hours early and exhausted. The gentleman on the desk changed rooms for us so we could have a shower and nap. So lovely to deal with and sent us to a lovely restaurant for an early lunch. When we got... More

Stayed two nights on a solo, work-related trip. The staff I dealt with were always helpful, the room was spacious, clean, comfortable, well-appointed. There was an issue with my TV remote control, but it was dealt with quickly and efficiently. I didn't use pool, but the fitness center was okay for a hotel this size. Not a lot to choose... More

This hotel looks new in all the photos but it's clearly not. Looks nice and it's well kept. The parking is a little odd and you can't really tell which building is associated with the hotel as I think other hotels share the parking. The rooms are ok, very average. It's right off the freeway and there is a Denny's... More

The nice thing about this hotel is that their Junior Suites can hold a large family of six. It's hard to find that in a hotel, especially a Holiday Inn. We only stayed one night, but dinner and breakfast in the hotel restaurant were excellent, kids eat free with paying adults. Even the military rate was a tad pricey at... More

Holiday Inn ain't no Motel 6 anymore. This one was clearly renovated recently and even has a bar in the lobby. Modern decor, best hotel pillows i've had in a while, close to the beach, and a good value. Ask for 623: top floor corner room with the best views

However, I have to telll you that this one exceeded all of my expectations! From the moment I checked in until the moment I checked out I felt like... More

Very clean and up to date with a full service restaurant and bar. The employees of this hotel do an excellent job to make your stay enjoyable. Their attention to detail and service are a breathe of fresh air to the vacationer and frequent traveler alike. Great price for a room this week. A short walk to the beach and... More

This is our second time in this hotel, and it was just as good as the first time. The hotel is very comfortable, and the staff are very nice. Facilities are good too. The hotel is in walking distance to the beach, and some nice restaurants on the wharf. The only 2 minor issues we had were that: 1) The... More
