Typical Holiday Inn, clean rooms but not luxury. Beds comfortable, our advance request for extra pillows was honored. Nice little restaurant/bar area which is unusual for Holiday Inn Express. Food decent and service good. Best thing about this is the location, right off I-5 and within 2 blocks walking of the harbor, which has a few nice restaurants, including Joe's... More

Dear HamTravelGuy, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about your visit to Oceanside. It sounds like the Wyndham Vacation Salesperson might have advertised us as "beachfront" - sorry about that. Although we are only 700 yards from the beautiful Harbor Beach, our guest rooms do not feature views of the ocean (Just from the Ocean View... More
