“Ramada Oceanside - Excellent”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

On our coastal trip from San Francisco to Las Vegas via San Diego we stopped off to seek accommodation in Oceanside. The Ramada was fantastic value for our family and the receptionist Laura was fantastic, polite and thoroughly professional in advising our cost efficient options of rooms or suite. We opted for a suite and all rooms were immaculate, all had large flat screens. In our opinion - top marks to the Ramada!

Room Tip: Ask for any discounts which may be applicable.

Thank you for your wonderful review. Also, thank you for pointing out the flat screen Tv's in our guest rooms. We have gone above the standard of 32" and installed 42" flat panels. We feel the extra expence was well worth it. Also, our cleaning staff works tirelessly to keep the rooms in good condition. We really appreciate it when we get customer feedback with the goal of improving every step of the way. Please visit our website or give us a call at 760-967-4100. Thank you, Andrew Stewart GM

Our visit to the Ramada is exactly what I expected. A comfortable 3 nights close to the freeway and the beach for a reasonable cost. The breakfast was good - I love to make my own waffles. The staff was friendly and responsive. The only reservation I have is we went walking one afternoon to find some food and it isn't in the best area so would recommend driving around

Room Tip: Breakfast is in the north side of the building on the second floor

The overall experience of the hotel its self was average...the parking situation was not great, as the parking spaces are very small and there was a limited number of spots....we had to park on the street....but the beds were very comfortable and the staff was very friendly...the only other complaint that we had was that when walking up the stairs closest to the road it smelt like someone had urinated in the stairwell, but when informed the staff, they jumped right on it to remedy the situation.....

We stayed there for two nights. It's conveniently located (right off the 5) and it was fine. I read some of the other reviews and think some folks have a flair for the dramatic when it comes to their criticism. It was clean, in an okay area, and the price was right...what more can you ask for? I had no delusions of this being a 5 Star resort. We slept there 2 nights and had breakfast once. It's right down the road from the pier at Oceanside. There are fire pits on the beach at night and plenty of places to walk around and check out. If you're looking for a clean place to crash for the night, this is well worth the money. Nothing smelled weird, there were no cleaning fumes in our room, and the only thing that seemed really dated was the tv, which we never turned on anyway.

Thank you for your very straight forward review. I do agree that some reviews can be rether alarming given the knowledge I have about my property, but we still do our best to respond and improve upon any type of feedback we receive. Also, I am happy to state, that the TV's have been replaced with a large 42" flat screen. We also have recently upgraded to direcTV from cable for additional movie channels and programming. We have so many more ideas for improvements, that by the time you read this, we will have taken the next step on those plans. Please call us anytime to reach a informative front desk clerk that can assist you with any questions or plannig you may have. Thank you, Andrew Stewart GM

My accomodations at the Ramada significantly exceeded my expectations with a moderately large, very well appointed room, conveniently located to my needs for this trip, and, importantly, pet friendly. Many useful extras I would not have expected

Yes! This is exactly what we are shooting for at our property. Exceeding expectations! The improvements we have made in the last couple of years are only going to be overshadowed by what we have in the works. Our staff is dedicated to doing everything in their power to make your stay as great as possible. We are pet friendly, but for those who aren't too hyped about that, we do have several policies in place to ensure that pets do not cause a disturbance to other guests. Please call us and ask as many questions as you can think of, we would love to take the time to answer them all. 760-967-4100. Thank you, Andrew Stewart GM

I and my family stayed here a week ago. It was absolutely terrible! When we first walked into the room I was completely overwhelmed by the strong smell of scented cleaner. The bath tub was peeling and the sheets smelt funny. Everything in the hotel was very old yet still we slept through the night. I left a very kind note the next day asking them to change the bedding due to the strange smell and we head off for the day. 3pm we return and the cleaning cart is in front of our room so we decide to leave for a little while and come back. 4pm the cart is still in front of our room and no house keeper is in sight so we decide to go in and change. Finally my husband spots the house keeper and she tells him we are next. So once again we leave annoyed that we are being kept away from our room for so long. 9pm that night we return with our room still dirty and smelly. So we go to the desk clerk and explain the situation 20 minutes later he comes to our room and hands us bedding to change our own beds, no fresh towels, and now we are house keeping. What a vacation! I was so upset I asked for another room and was told they are all booked. 20 minutes later the clerk shows up and tells us he found us another room. 10pm we are packing all of our stuff from one side of the building to the other with a very tired 3 and 5 year old. The next two nights we had to listen to people screaming and swearing in the apartment next to us. The walls are paper thin so you hear everything! Not one person ever acknowledged or apologized for the way we were treated. Its safe to say I will never come here again. I would advise you to run the other direction!

Thank you for your review. We appreciate it when a guest takes the time to give us feedback of their experience. We are very sorry your stay was not a great one. I have identified which room you were staying in and have ensured that the problems have been completely fixed. As for my staff, I have gone over this review with the persons involved so that they understand how their performance can have a dramatic effect on our guests' stay. They have responded very well and they have learned a great deal. We have done a lot of work to the hotel in the last couple of years as we aquired the hotel in a distressed condition. We have been steadily improving our rooms and public areas and we are actively improving the hotel on a daily basis. Thank you, Andrew Stewart, GM.

Great location to downtown Oceanside, Ca on Mission Rd. and 2 blocks from Route 5. This is a 4 story facility so it does not feel like a motel. Our room was newly remodeled. Management was very good and the breakfast was Great ! Hot self made waffles, and plenty, plenty more. I have already used this hotel on 3 different occasions. Big value for an affordable budget.
