I am generally not the most critical hotel guest, for starters. And I have never written a hotel review, good or bad. But as I currently sit here on my stained, tattered bedding, I feel it necessary. This room is beat to hell...scuffs, holes & missing paint everywhere. I have never stayed at a hotel SOOO loud before. It's as... More

I called this place to reserve a room based on the photos and some of the reviews. I got to the spot and quite frankly was shocked , it was a dark and smelt like mould, damp and wet dogs. room walls are dark red and room is stuffy as hell, stains on the bed, headboard , carpets and ripped... More

Nice, quaint hotel. Clean, with all of the ammenities that I needed. 10 minute walk to the harbor and beach. The one downside was in the morning there are homeless drug type people walking around the area. When I drove up the street, it seemed to be an area with a homeless population.

Spent one night here, had no issues! Great for the price and the location is the best! Employees very helpful. I did wish the parking was a little better. The room had a fridge and microwave which was very nice

The room and accommodations were good, however there was an issue with freeway noise. The suite configurations were perfect for our needs. The room rate was very affordable - which is why we chose Harbor Inn. Location to restaurants was good - walking distance. We would stay again if in a pinch - but really noisy.

I've always followed your advice. If a hotel had 3-4 stars on Trip Advisor, it would work for me! This hotel really is RIGHT ON THE FREEWAY! I couldn't have been closer unless I put a sleeping bag by the lanes! Towels had black stains on them; blankets had cigarette burns on it. Hotel staff was pleasant and room seemed... More

I have stayed at this hotel before and enjoyed my stay. The room amenities are decent, but pleasant. The staff was very polite and prompt about fixing hotel issues. The Continental breakfast is basically the bare minimum, but decent. Overall, I would definitely stay here again for a quick vacation.

This place is ok. Not great by any means. If you can get a good weekly rate, even better. The owners are great. They will give you a better rate with AAA or AARP if you book directly to them. The breakfast is nonexistent besides the cold cereal and coffee. They were installing new windows and paint, making the rooms... More

We took our son to Legoland and chose this place being very economical compared to other option. Very friendly and caring staff all times we met/saw them. We had no issues during our stay. Our room was a decent size, very clean, equipped with T.V, free WiFi, refrigerator, microwave, iron, and nice tiled bathroom. I would recommend this place 100%.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is great. The hotel has some age on it but it was very clean. I would stay there again. The worst part was the I-5 traffic all night...but I left the tv on and it helped drown most of it out!

We appreciate your feedback and always like to be informed on the areas we can improve upon. We are looking in the near future to do small renovations to improve the sound blocking of the I-5 freeway. We look forward to your next visit here at Harbor Inn and Suites Oceanside. More
