The Holiday Inn Oceanside is one of the nicest HI properties that I've stayed in some time. It is located on a relatively quiet side street off of I-5, within walking distance of the Oceanside harbor. The rooms were relatively large and well-furnished. The hotel seemed relatively new. The staff was pleasant and very helpful. They had a large collection of business cards with precise driving instructions to travel to the hotel to convenience stores, malls etc. The close proximity to the harbor is quite important because one can walk out of the back of the hotel, down a short dirt path, and under a RR underpass to gain access to the harbor which has a wide variety of restaurants. All in all a very welcome and pleasant surprise.

Room Tip: Oceanside rooms are probably quieter.

This hotel was very pleasant. The walls are a little thin so you can hear people walking above you or in the hallway, but other than that everything was nice. It is close to downtown and the marina. I would stay here again.

The space in the room was pretty large and included a couch. The bed was very comfortable. However the wireless internet service was awful. It took forever to connect to any website and you would have to log in to the wireless hotel service constantly. We also had problems with the room cleaning. The first day we left our room at 10am and returned after 3pm, and the room was still not cleaned. The second day we had the same schedule (we had to get ready to go to a wedding) and there was a note on our door saying we requested not to have our room cleaned. That was not the case, so we called and asked them to clean our room. They said the cleaning staff leaves at 3. Eventually we were able to have our room cleaned around 4:30pm after we left to go to the wedding.

Dear Greta K,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us while attending your wedding event. Please accept my apologies for the challenges you experienced using our internet service. We know how frustrating it is to not be able to get online quickly. Please know that we are in the process of replacing our entire guest internet service and upgrading to a fiber optic connection (in fact the fiber has already been run and installed and we are just waiting on the new routers and access points to be installed). Your internet experience should be much better next time you stay with us.

I would also like to thank you for the feedback regarding the timeliness of our housekeeping service. I hope that the delay did not interrupt your busy agenda too much. Housekeeping service generally operates between 8:30am and 5:00pm - please let the front desk know the best time to service your room and housekeeping will be happy to accommodate your time frame.

Thank you for the feedback and we hope that your travels bring you back to the Oceanside area again soon and we have the pleasure of welcoming you back.

Sincerely,

Geoffrey Parkford, General Manager
Holiday Inn Oceanside Marina / MCB Camp Pendleton Area

This is a great hotel. The room is clean and felt fairly new. The best part of this Hotel is the location. It's a five minute walk to the harbor. Skip the hotel breakfast and eat at Beach Break at the Harbor. The roof of the hotel has a nice sitting area with a great view of the ocean. I was worried about the trains, but our room was on the opposite side of the hotel. We never heard the train while we were in the room.

Dear Jason G,

It was a pleasure to have you as our guest and thank you for taking the time to share about your experience. Our goal is to be a GREAT hotel guests LOVE and we are happy to hear that we hit the mark. Although our breakfast at the hotel is yummy, I agree that the Beach Break Cafe does serve amazing food! It actually has since changed management companies and is now called the Stratford at the Harbor. I believe most items on the menu still remain the same.
We hope that your travel bring you back to our area and we have the chance to welcome you back.

My wife and I had the pleasure of a short stay (4 nights) here in late May, 2014. It was a peaceful haven and welcome stopping place at the end of long air flights from U.K.
We are familiar with the area and this recently-opened Holiday Inn was a break from our usual residence.
It proved to be every bit as nice and appealing as it had been shown on the Internet.
All the facilities and services were in immaculate order with the added bonus of friendly, informed and helpful staff.
Our room was much more spacious that we had expected, fresh and hugely acceptable.

We stayed for two nights, as our wedding was nearby. Its proximity to the freeways makes it a great stop to explore north county. Room was clean, and the staff was friendly. Bar closes pretty early, but that's not a real big deal. I will recommend in the future.

Clean and spacious room, which included a fridge, micro., and sink and counter. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful, even at 3:45 A.M. when we checked out! There is a nice bar, that serves drinks at reduced prices during happy hour. Even though the breakfast wasn't complimentary, we didn't mind paying for the delicious food that was on the menu or at the buffet. Would certainly recommend this hotel.
