My review is as follows .. Anytime I travel anywhere near Oceanside california, this is where I stay. Vin and his family make you feel welcomed from the beginning. All of the staff is willing to help make your stay great from check in til check out.. If you have a large vehicle, there are plenty of street parking all over the area, with the beach One minute away. Just south of camp pendilton this almost beach side hotel is one of the best values in the area. Freshly renovated rooms are desirable and modern. With market street less than fifteen walking minutes away shopping, nite life, sushi, johnny mananas resturant(best in the area hands down) and the pier this hotel should not be overlooked by people wishing to get the most out of their time in southern california.

We had terrific service thanks to the check-in clerk, Vin. He even delivered us coffee in the morning when we had trouble figuring out the plug operation. Didn't know we had to put switch on inside doorway to activate switch (we are Seniors....duh). The room was clean and spacious and the beds were great. Thanks. We definately recommend your facility.....thanks to Vin.

Central location, good room rates, breakfast, nice gardens, but the best part is Vin and his wife who operate this hotel. If you think taking pride in your business is gone, think again! Many rooms are updated and plans are for further upgrades. Everything in my room worked well. Rooms have 'fridge, microwave, iron. Nice deck, easy access to beach yet just far enough from the crowds in the town center. A few restaurants and small stores within minutes by foot. Stayed for 5 nights, slept well.

I am sorry to say that I was generally disappointed in our 2 night stay, which was majorly impacted by the fact that despite reserving a non-smoking suite, we ended up in a smelly smoking room. The staff is VERY nice, & offered to give us a non-smoking room the 2nd night. But, I wish I had paid the extra $50+/night to stay at a nicer hotel. I hate to give a mainly negative review, but I have to be honest. Mattress was very comfy, & bedding clean. If you don't mind a rather spartan accomodation, being literally next to the freeway & no amenities/aesthetics, then you won't mind staying here. I blame myself for being a cheapskate. On upside, it was walking distance to harbor area.

Clean, best value and excellent location. Room had all necessary amenities - even granite shower! Stay towards back to avoid road noise, but close to everything.

I had the pleasure of staying at this Travelodge for the first time on June 21st 2010. I am normally hesitant to stay at Travelodges because in the past I have found them in general to not be very well kept. But I trusted the reviews on TripAdvisor, and was rewarded with an excellent stay. The owner/manager was very professional and thorough, check in was very smooth. He had lots of ideas for places to visit and eat, showed me maps of the areas to visit. He told me that the motel had been recently updated. He was right. The room was very attractive, very comfortable, had all the amenities I appreciate so much. The room was immaculate,very comfortable pillow top bed (!), even a fridge and microwave, ironing board, etc. He even called me a few minutes after I had settled in to ask if everything was alright. Very kind and concerned. I appreciate that very much. The only complaints I would have aren't related to the motel itself. You could see where at one time this little inn would have had a nice view of the harbor in Oceanside, but a tacky 3 story hotel across the street took up the entire block, gobbling up any possible view like a bloated whale stranded on a beach. But as the owner said, the harbor and beach were within walking distance, around that monstrosity. Lovely to be able to walk to the ocean, or to drive to the free parking as well. All in all, a very good stay. I would definately stay here again.
