“Beautiful Spot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

What a beautiful spot for a hotel. Our room was one of the "older" rooms other reviewers refer to, but clean. We opted for a water view and while at the end of the hotel, still had a bit of view. The breakfast isn't worth waiting for and the one-woman front desk wasn't always there. Would be gone for 15-20 minutes often.

I can't express how much we enjoyed our stay. The room was gorgeous the view was better...the seals at night were fun to listen to. Oh did I mention the view....the breakfast was great had a variety of stuff to choose from. Cookies at the office were a yummy touch as well. This is our new vacation spot to stay. Located pretty centrally to anything you want to do.

We passed through Oceanside and decided to give this place a shot. Very friendly and helpful staff, absolutely awesome location, hands down. Although we can only speak for the remodelled rooms - the older ones are probably - from what we hear - not that great. So if you make a reservation, you should probably opt explicitly for a remodelled room. Hint: if you're getting a special internet rate on Priceline and the likes, it's most likely not gonna be one of the remodelled room. At least not until they're done remodelling all the rooms. We'd recommend spending the extra money - it's worth it. Awesome bathroom, living room with flatscreen tv and fireplace (!!!), fully loaded kitchen, spacious balkony. We will definitely return!

Booked this hotel/resort last minuet for a family trip, get my attention because it is a condo type with 2 bedrooms. Get greetings when gets there feels welcome which is great.

Rooms are big, not really clean, check in does takes awhile since mines are 2 tonight's stay somehow they get one night, after 10 mins problem solved and we get our room. Not very clean, be careful with your kid(s), also there is a open patio, wonderful! but again, be careful with your kid(s), it gets to the ocean. They should have a sign there like "watch your kid"

Breakfast is simple and surprise, we didn't expect that but being told by staff that simple breakfast serves 8am to 9:30.

I like condo type that I can brew my own coffee, 2 things I can't take on trip, 1) coffee 2) audio system, they fulfill one which is great.

Wish my room is clean, otherwise they will get 5 from my hand, will use again

Room Tip: Watch your kid if you have one with you

How incredibly disappointed we were on New Years Eve. We have stayed here,celebrated special occasions here, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Our whole family along with multiple local residents have shared a lot of good times here over the last seven years. To arrive, and not be let into our room until after four, check in is at 3 and is listed everywhere as 3. To be treated with heavy sarcasm at the front desk, to be told we could only have one parking pass, although we rented the two bedroom suite at a premium rate, and have always received two to three. To see that once again Management has changed, is just disconcerting. Beautiful location, dirty room this time, and customer service was no existent. Saddened, as we love the location, we shared with seriously over a hundred guests that have stayed here. All good things come to an end though. Wyndham, up the street will be getting all our new business.

On behalf of my entire team, I’d like to apologize for the dissatisfaction that you have experienced with your room.
Your stay is certainly not typical of the high level of service we strive to provide our guests. I hope that you would give us a chance in the future, should your travels bring you to Oceanside.

Booked a 2 room suite here for one night whilst I visited Oceanside with family. Suites are at the very end of the road on the harbour and are pleasant 20 minute walk from the main Harbour eateries and the lighthouse. The suites are perched on the seafront at the harbour sea entrance with great views toward the harbour and ocean. Nice little pool and hot tub in the communal gardens. Our suite had 2 good sized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms a sitting room and kitchen with dining area. There is a free, help yourself continental breakfast laid out in the morning at the poolside dining area. I would happily stay here again.

This was our second visit. We came here to visit with our grandson who is in the Marines at Camp Pendleton. Our first stay was on the harber side. The rooms on that side were quite outdated and a bit tired BUT clean. That didn't keep us from coming back. Our next visit was on the ocean side in the newly renovated rooms. We could not have been happier. The renovation is great. The rooms are beautiful and very modern and clean. The views, balconies and grounds are wonderful The staff is helpful and extremely friendly. The breakfast could have a bit more to choose from. We will definately be returning. Great job everyone!

Room Tip: Choose one of the rooms on the ocean or ocean/harbor side that have been renovated you will love it...
