“All positives for our stay.”
Reviewed 30 September 2013 via mobile

My wife and I stayed at Oceanside Residence Inn for three days and had a marvelous time.

We were looking for an affordable Marriott-owned resort that was within striking distance of San Diego and Oceanside really hit the spot.

Service was exceptional, the amenities were spot on and the room was just perfect.

We utilized the big gas grill and the nearby fire pit, made some friends and shared some laughs. BBQ tools were provided.

The gym was up-to-date, clean and functional.

The breakfast was scrambled eggs, sausage, potatoes, do-it-yourself waffles, cereals, hot oatmeal, French toast, fruit, yogurt, milk, coffee and tea.

We decided we will revisit Oceanside on our next stay to the area.

I can't stop rhapsodizing about this room and hotel. I've stayed in over 150 hotels this year, many of them Marriotts, but the first time at a Residence Inn. I think the room layout is smart, and beautiful, and I love my full-size kitchen appliances, everything about this place. Sarah was extremely helpful before I came, and all the front desk staff have been friendly, polite and helpful since I arrived, greeting me by name. It's a nice touch that usually only the most expensive hotels use. The pool was heated, and the perfect length for swimming laps. I always had it to myself. I can't wait to come back and stay here.

When you first walk through the door you get greeted with a smile. And the room is big and clean and so comfortable. You almost feel like home and if you want to cook it has a nice size kitchen. Pretty god internet. and the breakfast is a lot better than I expected. The pool is very nice. and one thing we really like was sitting next to the fire pit at night and relax. will be back

The staff was very friendly, the breakfast was better than expected for being included in the cost, and the room service was very good. The trash was emptied regularly, and they ran the dishwasher for you if you left dishes while you were out. The gym facilities were fantastic, as was the pool. Parking was adequate, but does fill up making your walk a little longer than may be desired. The location is fantastic with a variety of restaurants just across the lot. just over a mile down the road there are many more restaurants and shops to be found. I had a great stay.

I cannot begin tell you how awesome the Residence Inn of Oceanside truly is. In October of 2012, our home was destroyed by a fire, and as result of the damage we were displaced for 7 months. We turned to the Residence Inn for help in our time of need and boy did they come through!

First off, the hotel is only a few years old and in a great part of town. Great restaurants are only right across the parking lot. The location is in a quiet neighborhood (great for sleeping), but not too far away from so many of SoCal's great attractions.

Now, getting to the heart of the review... I can tell you that after living in a hotel for 7 months - I NEVER saw the quality of service we received waiver in any manner. The staff became like family to us, but yet always professional. They are well trained and genuinely care for their guests. The front desk team was always so accommodating. The maintenance team is hard working, and the house keeping service was top notch - always leaving the room clean from top to bottom. A day never went by that we didn't receive quality service.

Every hotel will a few have isolated events where a guest may have a negative experience, but I can tell you that if a negative experience takes place at the Residence Inn of Oceanside - it is just that - an isolated event. I have seen this staff in action for SEVEN MONTHS on a day in, day out basis folks - you can't get a much better review than that!

Our situation wasn't exactly easy during this time, but the hotel was always so helpful. During our stay we had our infant daughter with us. She was four months when we moved in and eleven months when we moved out. She almost knew the staff better than her own grandparents! Even though times were tough, the hotel helped with the various complimentary services they offer - free breakfast, free dinner three nights a week, and complimentary grocery store runs (Seriously! No joke - we gave them a list of items we needed at the store and they came back knocking on our room door with the groceries! They wouldn't even accept a tip!). I'm telling you - this place is awesome.

All the amenities are first class - gym, pool, spa, and dining rooms - all awesome.

If you're like me you've probably researched several options about where to stay and what would be the best solution for your hard earned money. Look no further - Residence Inn of Oceanside has you covered.

Josh, Mai, Justine, Tyrus, Dee, Sarah, Christin, and the whole gang will take good care of you during your stay. Book a reservation today!

Very nice heated pool and the hot tub was awesome, just the right amount of hot after walking around LegoLand all day.

Stayed two nights had a wonderful breakfast before heading off to LegoLand.

If we are ever back down in the area we will definitely stay there again.

Stayed 5 nights in July on family vacation.

Hotel is about 10 minutes to Oceanside beaches, about 30-40 min. to San Diego's Mission Bay area (in light traffic). It seems like a newer hotel with modern decor and accents. The room kitchenette appliances are stainless steel and countertops have a granite finish with ceramic glass stove top. It looks sharp! The bed was king sized and quite comfortable, incl. good pillows.

Spacious washroom & vanity, bedroom closet has a good shelf configuration. A/C was concealed in its own closet and controlled by thermostat. Worked well and pretty quiet.

Meal table seats only 2 people. Sofabed is modern and fairly comfortable. There was a reclining chaise with ottoman, too.
We stayed in a suite that was handicap accessible, so there was no bathtub. The washroom was separate from the sink/vanity room and had a shower and toilet. The shower had a sloped floor drain with curtain, seat and 2 shower heads (one fixed, one hand held). The water was not contained in the shower area behind the curtain, leaving the whole bathroom floor wet. So floor drain design wasn't good.

Also, you have to pass through the vanity room to get to both the bedroom and washroom. It is a poor passage layout because there are 3 large doors in small area all opening toward the others which causes the doors to bang together (it became a joke).

Hotel staff was very friendly, personable, and professional. The lounge area is comfortable and is equipped with 2 online computers and a printer (all free to use). The patio is nice and includes a large BBQ, tables, chairs, umbrellas and a gas fire pit. The pool was refreshing and was salt filtered (no chlorine). The deepest end was only 5 ft. The deck had many chairs and loungers and a few tables. There was also a hot tub.

Free hot breakfasts were very good and menu changed daily. Mon - Wed from 6-7:30pm a reception was offered free to guests which included tasty foods (different meal each day) and a variety of beverages including coffee, wine, beer, and sodas.

Free WiFi is available in lobby and rooms. However, signal was only OK and they had some problems. IT was troubleshooting and fixing it.

There is plenty of free parking. It is located about 5 minutes drive from shopping areas and movie theatres. There are also a bar, pizza place, and a few small businesses directly across from the hotel.

BTW, There is a treasure hunt for the kids that takes them throughout the hotel. Nice touch!

Our stay was pleasant and we paid using Marriott points program. If in this area again I would gladly stay here.

Room Tip: Do not take a handicap accessible room unless you need one.
