We had our crusade team plus numerous friends, associates and guests, many of whom came from out of state, stay at the Best Western in Oceanside. This summer was the second time for this group and we will be back. First of all, in over six years of organizing this group no hotel has provided as good a combination of value, accommodations, convenient location and amenities as this one. We have used several others in the past all with frustrating mixed results. The General Manager, Mr. Midagaspe, took a personal interest in helping us set up for this large group. Usually a group as large as ours has a few complaints but everyone was very happy. While the location by the highway is not normally ideal, the enclosed set up of the pool and rooms hides the noise and disguises the location. Many tourist sites are just a five minute drive away, north and south on the 5; the pier, beach, mission, harbor, Legoland, Camp Pendleton, and Carlsbad. Lots of great restaurants and a Starbucks a walk away. We have friends stay here in the off season as well and they always enjoy it.

Dear Timothy M.,

Thank you for your kind review! The team and I always look forward to hosting your crusade group every summer and I appreciate you pointing out the helpfulness and efforts of our General Manager, Sarath. He is a very dedicated individual who goes out of his way to make sure our guests are comfortable accommodated and I'm sure he'll be happy to read your review. I can understand how frustrating and difficult the process of booking 40+ rooms must be so we are honored to know that we continually exceed your expectations. We hope to host your crusade team for many more years to come!
