“Great Bargain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Took mom for her 89th birthday--3 people in a 2 bedroom suite, perfect spot for her to lounge on the lawn and view the boats and sea life coming and going. Totally ramp accessible. Nice 2-bedroom/2-bath, very spacious, had everything we needed. Staff very helpful and friendly and accommodated a 1-night request during high season (rare). Pool, jacuzzi, continental breakfast, fishing from the rocks, and we biked all over the harbor. This place is a very reasonably priced for what they offer. I'll be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in a deluxe lower unit right on the channel out to the ocean, nice big private patio, step...

Love it here! Staff was great and our stay was wonderful. Our room was nice and clean!The new rooms were nice with a nice ocean view. The Marina side is hot and so 1970s. Breakfast was small and perfect for me and my little family. Oceanside marina is now my family and I new get away from home. Is the Only place in town on the water with the best sunsets every evening. Looking forward to go back in Nov or Dec.

Booked a marina view one bedroom suite for 3 people through hotel's website. Ended up switching rooms twice for 3 night stay!! First night, found couch bed locked w/chain because it was broken!! Switched rooms tired w/no help after 10pm, had been in my nightgown. First room also had clogged/slow draining sink and tub--no help available. Second night came back after day away at Del Mar race track to find room did not receive maid service!! Switched rooms again/upgraded to ocean view w/o extra charge, but there was a light outside living room on all night and curtains wouldn't close all the way to block it!! Don't expect any staff in lobby on Tues. or Wed. after 11pm. Old rooms on marina side. Ruined our stay, won't be back. Good location.

Room Tip: Make sure you get an ocean view updated suite. Marina view nice but rooms old and dilapidated.

Dear iluvslo,

I apologize that your stay was not the best it could have been and was disrupted by moving rooms. We work hard to make each guest have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. As you stated, you made a reservation for a one-bedroom suite that comes with one king bed only in the bedroom which is stated on the website. The maximum occupancy for those rooms is three people with a choice of a rollaway bed. Our one bedroom marina view suites do not come equipped with sofa sleepers and are not advertised as such. When your husband came to the desk inquiring about the sofa sleeper, David, Front Desk Agent offered to provide a rollaway free of charge. Your husband declined the offer and asked to be put in a room that did have a sleeper sofa. David was able to accommodate you and your family and also offered assistance in moving your belongings but your husband declined.

The following day while you were away you left the Do Not Disturb sign on your door. The housekeepers are instructed not to enter any room that has a Do Not Disturb sign on the door. When you returned from the races and voiced your displeasure, the Manager on Duty provided a complimentary upgrade to an ocean view suite.

I am proud of the efforts of our staff to accommodate your needs and attempt to make your stay enjoyable.

Sincerely,

Adam M. Della Rocca
General Manager

Not only do they have a lovely swimming pool area with facilities to make tea and coffee,vending machines, and extra towels and sun loungers but they have lovely views of the ocean!I saw Sealions and their pups in the marina.I stayed in a garden view suite with a jacuzzi which was just wonderful! It had a lovely kitchen, jacuzzi in my room and a separate toilet, a spare bedroom and a huge balcony. I could have sunbathed on my balcony if I didn't want to swim. The Jolly Roger is close by and they are all really friendly and it's a nice walk to all the bars and food places, perfect to walk off all the tasty seafood!Would definitely recommend!!!Not to mention I was there by myself everyone was really friend and welcoming.

Dear ClaraP3,

Thank you very much for your five-star review. The Garden View Suites are unique and no two are alike. I am glad you were able to experience and appreciate the wonderful assets of the Oceanside Marina Suites, though I can’t promise all a personal visit from a sea lion. Thanks again and we hope to have you back real soon.

We just completed our 6th year at OMS and have already booked our room for next year. This by far was our most awesome month spent in a One Bedroom Marina Suite Room. The room we had was not updated but the King Bed was extremely comfortable and even though our pull out couch was not beautiful our Grandsons spent many comfortable nights with us. The two new fans kept us cool so A/C is really not needed. If something was not perfect with Housekeeping they were always back quickly and worked hard to make us happy. Adam and all the staff were so pleasant and accomodating and everything is much more professionally managed now. The swimming pool is regularly checked and the decking is now washed down regularly by Charlie, a big improvement. Clean, simple and Beachy is what we got and if the Continental Breakfast is not the best, so go out to the many Restaurants in the Harbor or go buy Bagels! We have wonderful memories, Barbecuing, swimming, beaching and spending quality time with our Family and Friends, Thank you OMS for a great time!

Stayed in room 110. It was damp, and had a strange murky odor. Internet was available hotel wide, but was not reliable in my particular room location. It constantly got cut off. People say parking is too cramped, but I was ok with it in my Honda Pilot. It's much further away from the beach for my liking, as there were many comparable priced hotels right on the beach. The free breakfast was lame - store bought mini pastries, small servings of yogurt, and apples. Eh. On the plus side, the room was spacious and I slept fine. The views were nice, and it was fairly priced for the size of the room. I really wished the sofa pulled out to a bed though.

Room Tip: Rooms on the northernmost side get crappy wifi access.

Dear Jayfeezy,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your recent stay with us. We apologize for the intermittent wifi signal as we have been diligently working on a solution to correct this. We offer a Complimentary Continental Breakfast as a courtesy to our guests should they choose to stay and relax on the property. Almost all rooms have a full kitchen should guests wish to stock up on their favorite foods or the Jolly Roger Restaurant (our closest neighbor) offers a 20% discount on breakfast (and all their meals) for those who looking for something more substantial for breakfast. We do hope that you will come back and stay with us again.
