Stayed here for 3 weeks while working at Camp Pendleton. Wasn't expecting much from a hotel on the outside of base but was pleasantly wowed! The staff makes the place. They bent over backwards to extend hospitality in every way. We were able to use the conference room for short notice meetings, they let us use their copiers for big... More

My husband & I were greeted with a warm welcome upon checking in by the Hotel Manager Joanne. We was so lucky to also get upgraded to the King Suite & it was quite a big room too. Overall a pleasant stay right by the beautiful beaches and a clear view of the Sunsets! I highly really recommend staying here... More

I felt like a VIP every time I walked in the door. Super friendly service. VERY clean. You can tell that the management takes pride in their property. Most importantly, I felt very safe in and around the hotel. Great for family travel. Good size rooms, wifi was fine (and free), free coffee in the lobby in the morning, and... More

We've had a fantastic experience at this hotel. The staff is one of the friendliest I've ever experienced. The on-site restaurant and bar is not much for atmosphere, but the food is good, staff is friendly and nice to have the option here. The location is great - within walking distance to most everything great in Oceanside including restaurants, the... More

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

This Oceanside Holiday Inn created a home away from home for us. I recommend staying at this hotel for the following reasons: --Staff was warm and helpful. Front desk, restaurant, housekeeping and management. Felt like I was in the Midwest because the staff had that personal touch and time to listen to all the questions from someone new in town...

We took advantage of a free 2 night stay on behalf of a wyndham vacation/time share promotional offer. The catch is you have to attend their presentation.

Dear HamTravelGuy, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about your visit to Oceanside.
