I stayed in April 2013, my rate was only $112.00 for a beachfront (walk out the door, boom!, there's the beach, beachfront). It was a studio with a kitchenette, comfy bed, clean shower. The sliding glass door opens onto a private patio; with table & chairs w/ umbrella, lounge chairs & a bbq, then there's a narrow one lane blacktop road, then the beach. The ocean sounds were perfect at night & am. You will want close the window blinds when it gets dark cause people do walk by and in the early am 5-6am the joggers are out. I was very pleased with my whole stay at SoCal Beach Club. I would recommend to anyone.

Hi California Cattygirl!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share the good news about our resort. You may want to come back and see us, we have installed screen doors on the studios. They are private and you are able to leave your front door open at night with the comfort and security of the screen door. Our guests are loving more of the ocean noise!
We hope to see you again soon!

Our two bedroom was great had everything you need! The property is right on the beach! Great location! Does not have a pool! But does have a jacuzzi, we enjoyed the property! We will be back

I got this exchange through RCI for July 4th week. I was visiting family in SOCAL. This resort is right on the beach (a little access road runs between resort and beach). It is a short walk to the pier, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. I only spent three days at the resort, but enjoyed my time there. This is a well-maintained property and the staff were all very pleasant and helpful in providing any assistance needed.

Unit Features: I had a one bedroom overlooking the courtyard, with a side view of the beach and ocean. It had a balcony that could be accessed from both the bedroom and the living area. It had a full kitchen that was well-equipped, a bathroom with separate vanity area, a nice sized bedroom with dresser and closet storage, and living area with a sleep sofa. Everything was clean and well-maintained. Be aware that there is no air conditioning in the units. I don't think that I was aware of this when I exchanged. I may have been apprehensive about staying there in July with no a/c had I known. It did not bother us. With the doors and windows open, we were always comfortable with a nice breeze blowing through. The temperatures in Oceanside were cooler than the surrounding areas.

Condition of Unit and Property: Everything was clean and well-maintained. All furnishings and carpeting were in excellent condition in the unit. All public areas of the resort were clean, well-maintained and presented a very nice appearance.

Any problems encountered such as check-in problems, room changes, etc.: We encountered no problems at all during our stay. Any time that we had a question or required assistance, the staff was always willing to help out or provide information.

Planned Resort Activities such as welcome parties, barbecues, kid programs, and outings: I cannot comment on any resort activities. I know that they had several things going on during the week. They provided a listing in the info packet, as well as posted the daily activity on the unit doors.

Resort Amenities: The resort has a hot tub, but no pool. There were bikes, boogie boards, chairs, umbrellas (I think), sand toys and more that could be checked out at no charge to guests. We checked out a couple of bikes during our stay and enjoyed riding them around town and along the beach area. There is a parking garage on-site with assigned parking. WIFI was available in the unit. There were gas grills and tables and chairs in the courtyard area. There is an elevator, as well as laundry facilities on-site.

Staff Friendliness and Responsiveness: This resort had great staff that were always friendly and helpful, and ready to make the vacation stay a great one.

Convenience to Area Attractions: We found the location of the resort very convenient (either riding bikes or walking) for shopping, restaurants and enjoying the beach. Oceanside is a very convenient location for exploring areas of SOCAL both north and south of the City.

Additional fees assessed: There was a daily amenities/parking fee charged. It was just under $16 per day. Since it included parking, WIFI and the opportunity to check out bikes and beach gear, we found the fee reasonable.

Suitability of Resort for couples, families, relaxing, partying, etc. The is a great SOCAL resort that would suit just about anyone looking for either relaxation or a "good" time. There were couples and families staying at the resort and everyone seemed to be having a great time.

I would definitely return to this resort.

I loved the fact that this was not a large resort. The resort staff was fantastic. The little touches were appreciated. We asked about a grocery store and they immediately handed us the directions. We were able to check out beach chairs and sand toys. We were fortunate to have a studio facing the ocean. I had always wanted to be steps from the beach. All questions were answered efficiently. We were close to the pier and enjoyed eating at Ruby's a couple of nights. Our grandson loved staying here and hope we come again.

The location is great, right across the beach. The Oceanside pier is less than 5 min walk. Shops, restaurants and movies on Mission Street are also a walking distance away. You can checkout a bicycle and ride it around town. The resort staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are big and clean. The only problem is the fact that the rooms don't have air conditioning. That's a deal breaker to me. They get really hot in the summer and it's impossible to enjoy being inside or sleep in 78 degree heat. The fans in the room don't cool it enough.

Dear JackSnack,

We were thrilled to hear that you had a great vacation, enjoyed the resort, and liked Oceanside. We apologize that you were not advised that we do not have air conditioning. Being right on the ocean there are about 5-10 days a year that are overly warm. Usually, the cool ocean air keeps all our rooms cool and comfortable for our guests. If I may ask you to email me directly so I may communicate directly with you. I would like to find out how you made your reservation, so I can follow-up to ensure that source is properly informing guests that we do not have air conditioning. I don't want that to be a surprise to any other guest! You can reach me at jdaronco@gpresorts.com.
Thank you again, and happy vacationing!

This is our very favorite resort for our family. we love the off season as much as the warm summers. The staff at the Beach Club are exceptional! The front desk manager always makes us feel most welcome and comfortable. We just had a 4 week vacation there and I could have spent much more time without being bored. There is always something to do in the area if you choose. The sea, beach, wonderful weather just add to the enjoyment. The manager has upgraded all of the units and is constantly making improvements. We have been enjoying the SCBC for over 20 years and have many of our extended family doing the same.

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. This hotel has an amazing location right on the water. However you want to make sure you get an ocean view or it kind of downgrades the hotel. We stayed in a room that faced other rooms so it was kind of loud and nothing to look at. The rooms are big and enough to fit a family. Our room came with two queens and a set of bunk beds. Would recommend this hotel just make sure to get ocean view.

Amysz15,

We are so sorry that we couldn't get an ocean view room for you. During our busy season (Memorial Day through Labor Day), we are highly occupied and the chances of getting the ocean view is very slim. We hope that you can visit us again, to enjoy the beach, listen to the ocean and we will do our best to get an ocean view next time. Feel free to contact me directly!
