I stayed here when my son came home from his deployment...its location to Camp Pendleton is great. It is a very clean hotel inside and out. The bed was very comfortable, room was large and clean, I loved the large shower...it didnt bother me that there was no bathtub, the bathroom was clean. The maid service everyday was wonderful...no complaints.... More

Laura was a very hospitable young lady who made our stay wonderful by giving directions, water and friendliness. Her knowledge of the area is excellent from local restauran ts to radio stations. She made two seniors feel welcome.

When you check into a Holiday Inn, you know what you're going to get. The room was clean, spacious, and well-appointed. Interestingly, the bathroom could use some remodeling as it didn't quite seem to fit in with the rest of the room. As other reviewers have said, the hotel is 10 to 15 minutes from the harbor. A summer weekend... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your candid opinions about your visit. It was our pleasure to serve you! I am sorry that you did not care for the bathroom - most of our rooms are equipped with an over sized shower; however, our 2-queen Jr. Suites are equipped with standard bathtubs (just in case that...

Building is right off the highway. The view driving up to it was quite off-putting. It is nestled into a tight spot with a trailer park across the street. The lobby entrance was through the underground garage.  Not exactly what you expect from one of the better rated hotels in the area, especially with the rate they command. I booked... More

This Holiday Inn was clean, friendly and convenient! The proximity to the marina made it easy to get a snack. The beach was about a 10 minute walk. Not my ideal beach scene but it was nice to get our feet wet. I had a breakfast voucher and they gave me a to go container because we had to get... More

Not usually a fan of HI hotels, our family stayed here based on the reviews and price point. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the room - granite surfaces and shower, flat screen TV, comfortable beds and a modern pallette. The room was also very clean and fresh. Most of the rooms face either a mobile home park... More

We spent three nights at the Holiday Inn Oceanside Marina. The room was fabulous and the customer service was exceptional. The bed was very comfortable with a variety of pillow styles to choose from.

We were reluctant to select a Holiday Inn, but this place far exceeded our expectations. We partially selected it base on Trip Advisor reviews, which were excellent, and it turns out they were right! I have heard that Holiday Inn has reinvented themselves, and that is definitely true. This is an apparently recently remodelled property, and it is very upscale.... More
