After reading mixed reviews we were pleasantly surprised when we checked into the Worldmark at Oceanside. The rooms felt a little retro, but we found the place to be exceptionally clean. The bedrooms were at either end of the condo so there was ample space for us. Our two-bedroom place had everything and we didn't need half the stuff we brought. The overall location is a short walk across a parking lot to the harbor where there are some shops and restaurants, as well as, some water excursion opportunities. The beach is just a block from there, so it was very easy to get our stuff over to the beach, too. The condo had a very nice view of the harbor and the ocean surf breaking onto the beach from our 5th floor unit. Sunset was awesome.
One negative is that the train track runs in between the complex and the beach. Surprising how many trains share that track: Amtrak, Coaster, Metro, etc....back and forth. No horns or shaking units, but there is definitely noise. We got used to it over the course of the week, but it's pretty loud at first. We didn't get woke up at night though so maybe they didn't run then.
The condo itself has washer/dryer and dishwasher that we used over the week. There is a tv in the master bedroom which was smaller than my computer here. The main living room tv is also pretty small...27", so they're in need to upgrade that. We rented a couple movies there over the week. There's a small exercise room with the essential equipment. The pool is quite nice and there is a large jacuzzi and a kiddie pool which got some use. Seemed like a nice mix of people...no rudeness anywhere or loud/late parties. The complex was doing some painting which involved a little late night disruption, but it wasn't a big deal. They gave us notice.
They do have an internet option available in the room, but it was terrible. The desk staff told me that it wasn't working too well and they weren't kidding. We were able to get on here and there, but I had to call tech support a couple times or tap into a wireless signal in the area.
The couple of negatives were not "deal-breakers. We would stay there again and definitely recommend the place.
