We stayed over the July 4th holiday in the hotel. When we checked in we were sent over to the Vacations desk to get a parking pass. We were immediately asked to participate in a Timeshare presentation some time during the stay. Although not as high pressure as a Mexican timeshare approach, it was still uncomfortable.
We checked into our 2 bedroom room and were happy with the updated appearance and cleanliness of the property. What I wasn't happy with was the lack of a view. Our room was on the 2nd floor and only looked out over the back of the hotel driveway, the train tracks and some parking lots. If you can't get guaranteed an ocean view you might as well get a cheaper hotel that also doesn't have an ocean view.
The 2nd problem is we were the first room off the elevator and across the hall from the Activity Center and pool. So we had a lot of foot traffic and elevator noise, but honestly it wasn't that big a deal. Just something to consider.
I would highly recommend an ocean view with a higher floor, but I'm sure those are reserved for the Wyndham Vacation owners. Just something to consider.
The location is excellent. You can easily walk to the beach or downtown. Couldn't ask for a better location. We also enjoyed the 7th floor lounge, totally underutilized by the guests. We went up there a few times to relax and get a view of the ocean.
Oceanside is not so great a city anymore. Check out Carlsbad if you want a more upscale experience. We will next time.
And beware this is a Wyndham Vacation rental location. That is Wyndham's main focus and as just a hotel guest you aren't treated as well.
