My family of 5 have stayed here 2 times over the last 2 years. I come back only because it's the only hotel that can fit us comfortably in Oceanside. I always reserve a 2 Queen bed with Sofa bed.
My first stay was on the first floor facing the parking lot. I asked for upper floor to avoid the loud overhead noise, but my particular room was not available at the time of check in. Bad decision. Loud walkers upstairs until 11pm. I couldn't figure out why the A/C wouldn't kick in. The maintenance guy showed me that it takes 5 minutes for the unit to adjust. My mistake was I kept changing the temperature, which reset the timing. Ok fixed.
My 2nd stay was again on the first floor because the front desk clerk convinced me the end of the hall corner room was large and next to the pool. Ok sold. However, loud walkers again upstairs with jumping kids. Ugh. The room was next to the freeway onramp, which had the occassional loud motorcycle or truck. Kids went swimming so it was nice and convenient to just get in the room right away. I didn't experience hearing the outer door to the pool. The room door was misaligned so it wouldn't click into place. We forgot to tell the front desk clerk and called when we were on the road. He said he will take care of it, and he did. Great service.
Parking can be a challenge when returning past 9pm. I drop off the family and wait a little bit to see if anyone leaves. However, I have been lucky most of the time that someone is leaving when we returned. Both of my stays were on weekends.
There's a small market and a Wienerschnitzel a block away if you need groceries or fast food. I walked. We haven't tried the diner next to the hotel or the Mexican/Burger place across the street.
The plus to this hotel for us has been the hot breakfast. We are early risers in hotels because it's just not home. So my wife and I get the bacon or sausage (changes per day), eggs, oily hash browns (they really need to use a different container), fruits, bagels, muffins, Yoplait yogurt, toast, etc. We know from experience that items will thin out before closing with the large crowd getting up late. The host was working hard to keep up. I tipped her $10 before we left since she always accommodated me when I asked for more of something.
We'll still come back here, and will get the elusive upper floor eventually.
