“FINALLY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

.. there is a Holiday Inn that lives up to my crazy standards, ha! For the money, area and services, this is a great price!

I went here for just one night to participate in the mud run. The rooms are really spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms are large. We didn't have a tub but to be honest, I can't imagine soaking in a hotel tub. The beds were so comfortable. They give an option of soft or hard pillows which really showed care. I feel that these are the nice touches that make a customer come back. The hotel is incredibly near the shore/pier. You can either walk or just drive less than a few minutes to meet some restaurants or visit some fun little stores. There's a pool, jacuzzi and a workout gym. I didn't use any of these but all looked well kept and maintained.

The service here is so awesome. When I checked in, it was easy, fast and just perfect. They met my standards of needs -- I needed an early check in and then when I asked about late check out -- even with the accommodations for other travelers in the hotel, they gave me a late check out. So wonderful.

I'm just really happy with this and would totally come back.

For the money it it a great place to stay. Rooms are spacious and modern. Short walk to the harbor area and the beach. Walked the beach to the downtown area every morning. Beautiful location. Staff was very helpful. Couple of minor hiccups but Alex took care of them immediately. Conveniently located midway between all the theme parks. Got the three for one ticket which allowed us to visit San Diego Zoo, Safari Park and Seaworld as often as we wanted during our stay. The hotel is conveniently located midway between these three attractions and the Disney parks.

Excellent customer service. The location is also perfect. It's right next to a beach, taco bell, Denny's, and other dining areas. It's also close to the freeway. It has a small gym which is available 24 hours and a good sized pool. The suites are perfect for a family of 4 or more, and the couch can be converted to a bed. Also, the hotel is clean, they provide free coffee and tea. They do a good job and keeping their guests happy!

This hotel is an outstanding value for the money! I have stayed in many nice 4 star properties and this can't be beat for the price and location. It rivals some of the places I have stayed at in Las Vegas. It's within walking distance to the Marina which has excellent restaurant choices. The accomodations are excellent. The rooms are clean, modern, and spacious. The service is top notch. I was greated by the manager when I stayed and he was extremelly courteous and helpful. Here is a perfect example: My girlfriend forgot her clothes when we left. I called the property and they shipped her things promptly. You can't beat that. This is my place to stay when I want to visit Oceanside. I won't consider anything else.

The manager of this hotel, Geoffrey is the most caring and helpful person we have ever come across in ANY hotel we have ever stayed at! He and his staff go ABOVE AND WAY BEYOND what is needed to handle every need of the hotel guests! We have been coming here for over 10 years and will NEVER stay anywhere else as long as Geoffrey is in charge!!! If you want outstanding quality for your money and the most friendly, efficient service you have ever had, come to this hotel!!!!! These hotel rooms are SPOTLESS clean every time we are here!! You just can't beat the location and the views of the ocean either!! It's about a 5 min walk from the harbor to the beach.

Room Tip: The 6th floor on the northwest side has the most amazing views of the ocean!!

The Holiday Inn in Oceanside was conveniently located. It was a 5 minute walk from the harbor and beach, which was amazing. We were also in between L.A. and San Diego, so we could sight see in both cities! The staff was amazing and took care of our every need, from sunscreen and aloe to boogie boards for the beach. Also the hot tub was amazing after a day in the Pacific Ocean. We honestly didn't want to leave, and every staff member, especially Geoffrey, we're amazing. This is the place to stay for a great Southern California vacation!

Clean facility, friendly and helpful staff - like a small family there. Typical hotel pool, but kids don't mind, right? Right! Gym is adequate. Waterpressure was great, as well as a well thought-out bathroom with large double shower. On-site restaurant (Aryana) is very convenient and has very good food! Complimentary coffee at elevators is welcome. Visit Cedros Street in Solana Beach with its garden shops, dog shop, and Leaping Lotus shops for a nice day outing.

Room Tip: Bed was a little hard...ask for a softer bed Ask for a beach view room. Ask about the short walk...
