Stayed here while my husband is working with the Marines... Rooms are very comfortable, clean and quiet. Nice little restaurant in the lobby for a quick breakfast or evening appetizer. Hotel offers a complimentary happy hour with finger foods every Tuesday, which was a welcome way to unwind! Easy 5 minute walk to the harbor for shopping or a bite... More

Great staff, the hotel is clean and the food is great! My husband and I especially enjoyed the observation deck on the rooftop. This hotel is close to the Oceanside Harbor Marina! The swimming pool and Jacuzzi are small though.

I stayed here for four nights from August 15th-August 19th. The hotel is clean and well kept. Our room was very nice, the housekeeping staff was friendly and did their job well. Even though they really didn't have rooms with ocean views I could still see a small part of the ocean through my window. The beach and harbor were... More

Excellent staff--especially the front desk Michael---the breakfast was made to order--the wait staff was also very accommodating---wonderful rooftop with a view of the ocean--The rooms vary in size--so if you need a larger room check to see if one is available. Close marina restaurants---wonderful sea food. The parking was great --no fee and right by the front door.

I stayed here one night on business, everything about the experience was entirely average. The photos of the hotel do a good job of hiding the fact that it is literally next to a trailer park, however the neighborhood felt safe enough. The rooms were adequate, but featured a strange bathroom layout with the sink almost at the foot of... More

We stayed at this Holiday Inn and for a place to lay your head it was clean and comfortable. It is in a sketchy neighborhood but safe enough. The one negative for me was the "no breakfast included". At their prices it should be! We had to settle for the Denny's across the street...also, the walk to the beach will... More

We stayed for 2 nights over Memorial Day weekend. They have one parking spot by the front door for check-in, which was very quick and easy. You can then park in the garage below ground, and take the elevator from the garage to your floor. My only complaint is that they put us in a handicapped accessible room, which had... More
