This is a very nice hotel, very basic but most importantly very clean. Staff goes out of their way to help accommodate you. The room is nice and large, the bathroom is small but there is a sink and large area outside of the bathroom where some else can be using while another is in the shower etc. the breakfast is the bad part (otherwise I probably would have rated a 5). Breakfast is really only a few rather cheap store bought donuts, cereal or apples or bananas not good but at least it was something. But again, overall nice clean place with very friendly staff. I would stay here again if I were coming back to California but I don't want to go come to California ever again so that is unlikely.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 139 it was on the "Oceanside" and there are traintracks right next to th...

This is a nice hotel with very clean rooms. The daily breakfast was good. The hotel was busy but quiet. Its best attribute might be its location. It is within walking distance to the Harbor and the beach (about 5 minutes or so). The view from the pool area to the harbor is very nice. There are some good restaurants and bars down at the harbor as well. We would not hestiate to stay here again.

I got this hotel through the Wyndham reservation system at a senior price under $60/night. It is conveniently located at the North end of Oceanside adjacent to the harbor with its restaurants and shops. The place is excellently appointed for the price and the staff is very friendly. The WiFi is excellent and TV extensive -- although you won't spend much time in your room at this beach resort.

The comfort of the mattress/bed was outstandinng. Room size and amenities are excellent.

Public transportation is very spotty especially on weekends, so a car is well advised. I took the train and when I found the laundry room was not working, the manager offered to drive me to a laundromat -- VERY friendly. This is definitely a place I will revisit.

Room Tip: West-facing rooms have the ocean/pool view. Second story rooms do not have an elevator.

Was in town to visit family at Camp Pendleton and stayed two nights at the Days Inn Oceanside. The location is excellent for tourists and locals as its close to local attractions, restaurants, and the base. Excellent, friendly staff also made the stay a perfect one. Will stay there again.

We booked 4 nights here on a 'manager's offer' deal and liked it so much we stayed longer - at the same price! Nice restaurants within walking distance at the harbor (Italian, Fish & Chips etc) - as well as Denny's across the street! Close to railway for trips up or down the coast - maybe noise from trains in the 'harbor view' rooms - we didn't go for one of those and heard nothing. Included breakfast is always a bonus.

Room Tip: Possible noise from trains in the 'harbor view' rooms

We (2 adults+2 children) spend a night in this motel in September 2011 and we all were extremely satisfied. The lady at the reception was very, very kind and helpful, indeed. The room was large, clean, well equipped (air-condition, fridge, kettle with tea & coffee, etc.) and with beautiful ocean view. The harbor with restaurants (I recommend Harbor Fish and Chips - very taste and prices are OK) is just few minutes by walk and the beach is just behind. There is a fantastic view at The Oceanside Pier, but it is worthy to walk down to it. I have made an award-winning pictures during the sunset there! The hotel has a small pool with jacuzzi which was enjoyed by my daughters very much. The breakfast on the next day morning was tasty and rich with plenty of cakes and fruits available. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay there and I can only recommend it.
