Just returned from this one year old property. As a really frequent hotel stayer, following are my opinions on this property:
CONS: No swimming pool. No HBO or premium cable. Small parking lot, no spaces for trailers or large trucks. No room "views" of anything except limited view of ocean from rear third floor landing, but not from rooms.
PRO: Immaculate property and rooms spotless. Easy access from freeway but not immediately next to freeway. Minutes to Oceanside Harbor. Very quiet, does not cater to military business. "Gentlemen's Club" next door is separated from hotel by high brick wall. According to hotel staff, bouncers do not allow loitering either in their parking lot or in front of club so club had no impact on my stay. Oceanside is still a military town with all it's issues but the community has done a lot to upgrade it from its old rough and tumble image. If you want a place to walk around at night or a quaint California ocean village experience, you would be better off a few minutes to the south in Carlsbad-by-the Sea (however the hotel prices there are significantly higher). An excellent California Visitor Center is right across the street from the hotel and worth checking out. Coco's Restaurant also across street. Check-in was rapid and all staff very friendly. Hotel very security oriented, no access from exterior doors without room key. Rooms are very large for this price hotel with actual clothes closet, kitchenette (large microwave, refrigerator that actually keeps food cold, sink), iron, desk, free internet connection. Bathroom is moderate size with tub, minimal amentities. Sheets and towels good quality.Bed very comfortable with pillow top mattress. Each floor has washing machine/dryer. Deluxe complimentary breakfast includes cook yourself waffles and lots of Danish, cereals, fruits, etc. Largest rooms are in rooms ending in 05-08 numbers. Stay away from rooms ending in 12-13 numbers as they are next to vending machines, elevator, housekeeping. All in all, this is an excellent value and a great place to stop for the night before hitting the traffic nightmare into San Diego.
