We took a weekend trip to this hotel/resort (being a Wyndham owner, and living in Los Angeles), with another family, so we could take the kids to Sea World for a day, and not spend most of our time driving to and from San Deigo.
The hotel/resort is nice and clean, with a friendly staff. Our 2BD room was also nice and clean, with a partial ocean view (facing south in the South Building). The room was not as large as some other Wyndham 2BD rooms, but comfortable for our purpose.
I call it a hotel/resort, because they refernce the property as a resort, but if you are thinking it will be like a "resort" - that it not really the case. I would say that it is an above average hotel, with some resort amenities. Because of the season, we did not get to maximize our use of the pool or beach (across the street), so I cannot really comment on that aspect.
The hotel/resort is in a prime location (considering the City you are in), at the end of the local pier, across a small street from the beach, and blocks from the main "strip" in the area, and a few blocks from the Amtrack train station. This is a small town, and not a resort city, so there are not very many amenities in the city as a whole. Average restaurants, lots of bars, and lots of barber shops (being close to some military bases and home to good number of military peronnel).
I would say that of the choices around, this is one of the best (if not the best or only one of its kind). The city however, is not somplace I would really spend a week's vacation however, unless I planned on just going to the beach across the way, and hitting a couple of San Deigo attractions (about another 35 miles south). Nothing special as far as sights, restaurants, or nightlife in Oceanside if those are some of your plans.
The major bad point here (also a good point depending on how you look at it), is the proximity to the train station. Depending on where your room is, the sound of the train may get annoying. Our room did not get too much of the noise because of its location, especially with the windows closed - but I cannot say it would be the same for all rooms.
I would probably stay here again with the kids for another weekend trip, so we could visit a San Diego attraction one day, and hang out the beach the other, and then drive back home. Might even take the train down to avoid the drive back and forth.
By the way, they have their own parking garage, at no cost. They also have a few restaurants in the ground floor if you do not want to venture into the town.
