This Holiday Inn pretty much has everything a 5 star hotel has to offer minus the price tag. My King sized room had everything..a kitchen sink, small fridge and even a microwave! Some 5 star hotels in Vegas don't even give you this much! Excellent location...just a 5 minute walk to the marina and beach and a 30minute drive to... More

For families planning vacations to San Diego to visit the many attractions available, there are an overwhelming number of hotel choices with varying degrees of family-friendly amenities. I spent hours searching for a choice that would meet two specific criteria: close proximity to a beach and a relatively close distance to Legoland. We finally decided on the Holiday Inn Oceanside...

My wife and I needed a "get away" for a weekend, and we picked the Oceanside area, just because we never get to explore off of I-5 down in that area. By happenstance we choose the Holiday Inn Marina. I must say that our expectations were exceeded in all aspects. The room we had was comfortable and well equipped. It... More

Close to beach. The view from the room wasn't the greatest with the way the hotel is situated. Everyone was freindly and helpful. Would recommend staying here! There was a Thursday night festival that I guess happens every Thursday night. Band, food, vendors...it was alot of fun.

I used Priceline to book a North County Coast hotel, and was disappointed when I got a hotel at the very tip of San Diego...I mean literally. This hotel, coming from LA, is located in one of the very 1st exits as you enter San Diego County. That was the worse part....but the best part was the unexpected excellent accomodations... More

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Oceanside Marina for 3 nights, 4 days. After reading previous reviews, I had high expectations upon arriving and I can say that this seems to be a basic, no frills hotel. While comfortable, I wouldn't rate the stay "exceptional" and "exquisite." Check In & Staff: - Check in was with Michael and was good. Noticed... More

Stayed here several days while visiting our son at MCB Camp Pendleton. Very nice room, quiet except for A/C which was a little noisy. Easy access to Camp Pendleton (5 mins), Interstate (45 mins to San Diego Zoo), beaches, short walk to Marina for sight-seeing or dinner at Joe's Crab Shack. Breakfast seems a little overpriced at $10.99 pp, but... More

We were there only one night, but they were very helpful at check-in. We needed a place to eat close by that wasn't fast-food and we received decent recommendations. Our room was larger than usual hotel rooms with a mini-fridge and a micro-wave. And clean, clean, clean, which is very important to me. Only one drawback - no bathtub. The... More

My boyfriend and I were looking to have an overnight get-away and decided to head down to Oceanside (from Long Beach) for the night. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Oceanside Marina and we were pleasantly surprised.

I am the Director Of Sales at a Holiday Inn Express in Southern California. I stayed at this hotel for two nights around St.patricks day. And I loved it! I have stayed at quite a few IHG hotels and this had the best service yet. The employees I interacted with were amazing, (Lisa and Emily). They in my opinion are... More
