I booked a "Marina View One Bedroom" over 9 months ago at the same time as I registered for Ironman 70.3. What we got was a dingy, almost basement bachelor suite with a view of a cement wall and the side of a building. Awful!! Gee.....and I wanted a reduction in price....Imagine that!! Just like "Never again" the GM was no where to be found during our entire stay and I am still waiting to hear back from them on an "additional adjustment" to my bill.

Do NOT stay here!!

Do Not Stay at Oceanside Marina! My friends and I booked 5 rooms during the Iron Man 2014 and we had a Horrible experience! The general manager was rude! The rooms we were assigned had chipped paint, dirty windows, a broken sliding door and no hot water. They were nothing like the images in the hotel's advertisements. We asked the general manager if we could get better quality rooms, but these were her exact words, "You have to pay for an upgrade in order to get a better room!" Since we were so uncomfortable in the rooms, we felt forced to pay extra for what we thought would be a better room. The "upgraded" room had the same problems! We tried contacting the GM again, but she was no where to be found throughout the weekend. We will never stay here again!

Checked intot the property today and already disappointed with our stay. As travel agent I would no nor will I ever recommend this property to another person. At check in I am told there is a $100 deposit which was never mentioned anywhere. I also see on the paper it says "marina view" well the only way anyone is seeing the marina from this room is if they have x-ray vision. I stayed here last year and had the worst experience ever at a hotel and the GM told me he wanted to make it up on our next stay if we would give them a chance to win our business back. I emailed him and still have received no reply. Glad to see that new management cares about its guests. Bad word of mouth is huge and its even larger when its from someone in the travel industry. The property also does not have air conditioning so if you stay in 313 good luck gettinig any breeze they claim to have. The curtain covering the bathroom door is held up with drywall screws. The floors are stained and feel incredibly nasty to walk on. Please view photos.

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
