We stayed 7 nights in June 2012. The room was great, we had a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit, 2 adults and 2 kids. Nicely and simply decorated in Cali colors. Kitchen was well laid out and had enough equipment. It was very well ventilated, much appreciated, no residual odors or humidity. There are a couple things to consider: the surrounding neighborhood is nice but the downtown area is still on the rebound from something, and the pier, which is fun to walk, attracts all aspects of society, it is not disney but we never felt unsafe during normal daylight hours. There are great bike and tram rentals below the pier, fun for families and the road along the beach is a very safe area to use them, back and forth... The other consideration is the noise from the adjacent Amtrak/commuter/freight trains, kept me awake the first of the seven nights, constant horns, which is why ear plugs are generously provided at the check in desk. That should always be a clue. I guess another downside was we had no control over the room location and we had a "city view" which was over the train tracks and very little ocean to be seen. Not a bad thing for a Legoland-bound boy but an ocean view room would have been quieter. The swimming pool was not kept very warm and we chose not to use it much, the hot tub was very busy. Activity room was staffed by friendly people but they shut down access to video game systems one hour before closing, a rather arbitrary rule that disappointed our son and seemed unnecessary ? Nearby the downtown is very close to walk to, and the commuter train station to San Diego is close, 4 blocks or so. The Thursday evening market in the downtown was bustling, great variety, tons of people, the gyros were amazing. We did not find much family oriented food nearby. I would say that Carlsbad is more family oriented than Oceanside and you might consider that in your search. Overall, we would consider other accommodation next time, although our stay was pleasant enough. But it also was rather expensive, we paid less in Hawaii for similar, but on this trip I was paying for location and the conveniences of a 2bd/2bath unit for a family wanting to be midway between San Diego and LA.
