This is a nice hotel. The room was clean and quiet with a full kitchen (nice) and no noise from the hall inside the room. Breakfast was plentiful with a good selection. Front desk staff was eager to help and pleasant. The laundry room was nice- there were 3 machines so it was actually possible to do laundry there. The elevators were broken while we were there which was annoying- but I'd stay again as long as the elevators are functioning. One thing to note though, this hotel is NOT very close to San Diego- it is close to Carlsbad and about 35-40 minutes north of San Diego- more during rush hour.

Greatest experience in quite some time. On business from SF bay area to SoCal. Killer room, great size n layout. Wonderful location, close to restaurants and highways for easy travel. Great room layout and property layout; even had a kitchen for me if I wasn't indulging in the hospitality of the Inn. And most of all SUPERIOR CUSTOMER RELATIONS AND SERVICE!!!!!!! April Chu is a definite assett to the Marriott franchise. I arrived in the later hours, 11:30 pm to be exact, and got cookies for a late night snack first thing, greatest first impression. Felt like family. Ms. Chu also chatted with me and did some research on locating some places of interest while I sipped on a cup of complimentary white wine. It Gets NO BETTER THANKS THIS. If in Oceanside, you MUST!!!! Stay here, you will not be disappointed. DOOSKATE INC. Loves Residence Inn Oceanside. Thank You Ms. April Chu. The experience was phenomenal, keep up the great work.

This hotel in the Marriott chain does it right! The room/suites are spacious and comfortable, with some very useful shelves and even a laundry basket! Love the kitchen too. Staff is helpful and professional. Breakfast is full compliment of selections. And the location is in a strip mall with some excellent food options for dinner.
The art on the walls is gorgeous, like a gallery! A great stay, booked last minute on a holiday, at a AAA rate!

We visited Oceanside for a week in May and choose to stay at the Residence Inn. The rooms were spacious and we liked having a kitchen to cook our own meals. The housekeeping staff was very courteous and helped with any requests we had. We also enjoyed the evening social hour. Both at check-in and check-out our Front Desk Agent was Kira, who was incredibly friendly, immediately making us feel welcome. She helped us finding good restaurants in the area and we talked to her several times during the social hour. She was cheerful and we had a great time talking to her about our recent trip to Europe. We saw her helping out at breakfast and social hour-she was everywhere, helping out when needed. The girl at social hour, Baia, was also great and these two made us laugh and feel like we have been regular guests for years (even though it was our first time here). We absolutely loved our stay here and would come back anytime !

My family and I stayed here for 2 nights, and it certainly did not disappoint. Room was clean, stocked properly, and in good order. We really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast, as it had hot foods, cereals, yogurt, and hot coffee, among other things. We used the pool, and it was heated and nice. Overall, a very comfortable stay. We would recommend this Residence Inn and come back.

Had to make a reservation change that would have taken 30 mins on the phone and Christan took care of it all for me. It was done in less than two! Outstanding service! We also loved the pool (although they were out of towels when we got there), breakfast, cleanliness, location...everything was great. Will stay here again. Room was unbeatable.

My big family and family friends stayed a night in a room on the third floor. Two bedrooms plus a sleeper sofa allowed the ten of us to sleep comfortably. The two full baths heeled tremendously was we cleaned up from the beach. The recliner with ottoman allowed my teenage boy to look cool as he slept on it. The breakfast tasted great and was always plentiful. The food was piping hot and fresh. We ate outside around a fire pit facing the pool, hot tub and basketball court. The staff was great as well. It's convenient to beaches or the base. We will return to stay here again.
