We made the mistake for staying at an Oceanside marina hotel the first night of our girls vacation and so was disapointed that we almost just went home.

Stayed here for 4 nights over a busy long holiday weekend. Bonus that every room has a balcony to enjoy fresh air. Pool and hot tub stays open into the late night so that was a plus.

We have been coming to this hotel for about 30 years and are always pleased with how it is upgraded periodically to be on par with any hotel in the vicinity. The room this time near the pool was a delight, and the breakfast package was a good option. The dining room is lovely and service is very gracious. I... More

Sounds like they are moving furniture above our heads, day and night. A/C is an enigma (good luck figuring it out). Noise, slamming doors, Yuch. Maid service was very good. Repairs and maintenance crew was good. Would we come back? Probably not.

After reading some reviews I was skeptic about the hotel, however it was the only hotel in the area available using points. Hotel was great, nice tropical court yard area, great breakfast out by the pool. Great stay, great check in process thanks to Tish at the front desk.

We had a 3 day stay in San Diego at this large Hawaiian themed property last week and it was pleasant enough.
