The location was great. We arrived without a reservation, the staff was very friendly. The room was nice, comfortable and a very quiet and free wi-fi. We would stay here again if we were passing through.

During a weekend getaway, I came across this place and it definitely looks better on the inside then it does out. I really loved the friendly staff and how helpful they were but most importantly, the prices were reasonable and the stay was comfortable.

Absolutely terrible, the staff were very unfriendly. The room was not clean the bathroom was terrible. It was fairly cheap 90 dollars for the night, however, nearby motel 6 was better than this for cheaper! DO NOT STAY HERE.

I stayed at a Motel 6 in Scottsdale AZ. the night before for my 1st time at a Motel 6. It was fairly small, but incredibly clean and the staff were very polite and accommodating and a good size pool for about $70. I thought it would be the same in Oceanside,( so I didn`t check trip advisor) WRONG! The... More

First off realize you get what you pay for. If you want a cheap hotel with no coffee, refers in all rooms and pretty much a dingy hotel this is the one. They lost my reservation although I had the # the guy at check in didn't know anything and really didnt help the matter. All in all it was... More

I hate to leave a nasty review about a hotel, but while on orders to California, some fellow Marines and I were looking for a hotel within our price range and found this place to be the only one. For $129/night, this place was not worth it. The location is great; right across from the beach. But from the time... More

This room was lacking in everything, but it did offer roaches! There was no soap, no shampoo, and not even any towels! I am surprised there was toilet paper! I stayed there because they offered a Jacuzzi tub, but by the time I got out of the bath I saw roaches running around. I spoke to the manager/owner and showed... More
