We came here for a quick get away during the week. They had yummy flavored water in the lobby that was fresh and inviting. The staff was friendly and accommodating and our room was great! The pool is super tiny, but that didn't bother us.

Great location. It's only a five minute walk to the beach. You can walk through the marina, check out the shops or grab a bite to eat at one of the restaurants. The room was fairly nice - there were hairs on the pillows and used tissues in the bathroom cabinet, though (somebody should do a better job of checking... More

We stay almost exclusively at HI or HI Express and they never seem to disappoint. We had a queen room junior suite and everthing was clean and fresh. The refrigerator and tv both worked great and the beds were comfortable. Within walking distance to the harbor but you will have to walk up a large hill to get back. My... More

For some reason, my husband wanted to go to Joe's Crab Shack for his 50th Birthday Dinner. I know, right??! Anyway, this was the hotel we chose that was close to that restaurant. We were not disappointed! Greeted by the two young men at reception with excitement & enthusiasm! Hubby wandered off so I mentioned to them that it was... More

This is s nice hotel. A stones throw away from Camp Pendleton. About 1.5 miles walk away from the pier. No continental breakfast available. The path to get to the harbor/ beach access was a dirt path. It seems the local hotels could get together and pave it our make it safer. Maybe some lights. I just imagining my folks... More

We came to Oceanside for a time share presentation and were supposed to stay at the resort, but got the old bait and switch-er-oo. At first it was very disappointing because it appears that right next door to the HI there is a hotel of the same name as the resort and it has balconies, is closer to beach, etc.... More

Have stayed here before. Has not changed a bit. Still gets five stars for overall excellence. This could be a training model for other hotels, especially in the customer service area. All of the staff are awesome and I do believe that they genuinely care that each guest has the most pleasant experience possible. We spent three days on the... More

As a business traveler, this hotel falls short. My biggest complaint was that the alarm clock was set (not by me) to go off at 4:30 am. This is unacceptable, and a rookie mistake in my opinion. The other main complaint is that my room took on the smell of raw sewage during the afternoon, suddenly, without explanation. I flushed... More

We were in room 320. It was located at the end of a hallway and a very oddly shaped room. It faced the street, so had no view at all. It was fine for the two of us, but it was pretty small. The furnishings were nice and it had a small fridge and microwave. But there was only one... More
