“The Staff will win you over”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

THE place to stay in North County. I can't wait to go back. You will not find a better place on the water. Our room just felt like home with the updated kitchen. 'Breakfast served by the pool will set your day off right. If your looking for a clean and quiet get away book here now.

Room Tip: Stay on the higher floor to view the water.

Great experience. A Little pricey but was worth the extra. Very comfortable rooms. Older resort--Being up dated but was quiet-pleasant staff-easy access to rooms-Super large-If you want to cook everything is provided.. Beautiful location & grounds. Nice pool-Great & very warm hot tub. Clean. Great location close to everything. Must take a drive to Temecula, Ca. for all the GREAT WINERIES & nice Indian casino. Beautiful downtown. Also drive up the mountains to Ramona- Quaint town & antiques. Must do winery at Temecula isMaurice Car'rie Winery
34225 Rancho California Road Temecula, CA to do on Saturday's. Has special to kill for home made Sourdough Bread (usually available all day) & custom made Brie bread extravaganza (which you have to get your name on the list as it is baked fresh). Some great wines especially Muscat & Zinfindel. They have a 2nd winery just down the road & grate wines available there.Lots of antique malls in the area.

I had low expectations because of how inexpensive the room was, but was blown away by the hotel. The 1 bedroom suite was huge with a view of the ocean and the marina. We also had a kitchen, fireplace, and balcony!

We have 3 kids and they thought said "it was the best room EVER"

Breakfast was good and the pool with an ocean view doesn't hurt either.

I just hope they don't increase the rates when everyone realizes what a great hotel this is.

Room Tip: The 1 bed room suite is a great bargain!

This hotel has great front desk staff. Robin, Micah, and Adam were all very helpful at our checkin. Very pleasant to deal with and knowledgeable. We all had many laughs while checking in and they guided us to all of the important things to see in the area. They also shared the history of this historic hotel. We had several questions and they answered everything to our satisfaction. We had a fun filled event at the continental breakfast this am. The waitstaff at breakfast was very accommodating and even gave us some freshly baked cookies for our breakfast dessert... normally meant for the 5pm cookie hour. The staff at this hotel ROCKS!!! They give everyone an opportunity to experience an awesome vacation in this coastal community. Nicely appointed rooms and all views... ocean or harbor are spellbinding!!!

the suite was very nice. every room separate. kitchen, bath, dinning room, living room, bedroom.
Very nice fireplace in living room. the suite was very decorative. we had extra pillows, blankets and towels. there was an electric heater and a fan in closet if you need them. the view was exceptional thru the dinning room to include a patio, a table w/2-chairs very romantic. the view was boats plus the marina was by the water. Location very good not to far from downtown oceanside, ca. We are looking forward to another trip to the Marina Suites.

Room Tip: Book your room toward the southside.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. Our suite was huge and very comfortable. The avacado green paint and wall paper reminded us both of the 70's. We enjoyed the view of the harbor from our balcony. After watching a beautiful sunset, We strolled to the Jolly Roger for a nice dinner. Our time went way too quickly and we look foraward to a return visit in the near future.

I wanted to get away for a couple days, the girls found this on their mobile phone. We got a special rate online and it was a deal.
They had a photo of the room but I couldn't believe it would really be that nice for the price.
It is an older building with great charm and they work very hard to keep it in good condition.

The sunset every night was amazing. Very private and quiet so you can enjoy sitting out on the balcony ! yes a wonderful balcony to watch that amazing sunset!

I say give it a try and feel spoiled for a value price.

The pool and jacuzzi are great.
