Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Holidaying2013 Nothing Less Than Excellent
My family and I traveled cross country this Summer and the hotel we favored the most was the Holiday Inn Oceanside Marina. The people, service, and our room were nothing less than excellent. Very clean, and all the amenities you needed. We will definitely stay at this hotel again...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa827 Nice room and exceptional Staff
The hotel room was really nice and the staff could not do enough for you. I was disappointed as the web site leads you to believe that the ocean and the fishing pier are right behind the hotel which is not , it is not even within walking distance. Our view from our window was a trailer park, There is however a marina behind the hotel that has shops and good restaurants. It is also really close to I5 which is the main parkway that goes to all the attractions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by siouxscout Outstanding stay
As before, my stay was outstanding. The general manager and staff go out of their way to make your stay memorable. Besides being a top rate operation and service, the Holiday Inn Oceanside strives to be an extension of your family. I feel like family every time I stay there. Hooray for the staff and management of this 5 star quality service facility and thanks for being so friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leah12 Spacious room, great location
I loved staying at this Holiday Inn. The rooms were large and included a huge TV, microwave, fridge and beverage station. Great service and value. About a 5 minute walk to the marina and another 3 to the beach. Be sure to take surfing lessons and walk along the beach to the pier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jvandinter Mostly Enjoyable Experience
The five nights we spent at this Holiday Inn were a refreshing experience. The unique architecture of the building, the bright interior design, and the friendliness of the staff made this an enjoyable experience. The slight wear and tear of the furnishings of the room did detract from the experience. Also the cost of the breakfast added to the total cost of staying and makes this hotel non competitive with neighboring hotels that provide a free breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IloveTexas Quiet room and comfortable bed
The room was clean, spacious and very comfortable; it was also quiet (my room did not face I-5). Loved that the room came equipped with a real coffee pot - and good coffee. That was the icing on the cake for me.
The only downside was the restaurant. I called my second night for room service. I was told it would be 45 minutes (because of a table for 20), but if I would like to order and pick it up myself I could have it sooner. So I ordered the Caesar salad with grilled shrimp, and requested some lemon to go with it. The shrimp was great ( I was given 5) - the salad was pretty good. It would have been nice if they had included some sourdough rolls or bread to complete the meal. I was given plastic ware.
The third night of my stay, I again requested room service as I was heading in for the evening. The woman suggested I do take out instead. I ordered the Caesar salad with shrimp (3 shrimp this time) again, and a glass of wine. So if you'd like to eat off a plate and use silverware, tell them you'd like room service.
I will definitely stay here again since I visit my elderly mother at least once a quarter. Thank you Geoffrey for your terrific service and changing me to a great room! Also, please thank the lady who cleaned the room I was in; it was immaculate!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by macca1642 A great stay
Our stay at The Holiday Inn, Oceanside was thoroughly enjoyable. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, the room was clean and the bed comfortable; we ate in the hotel and the food was excellent, well presented and tasty. The staff were able to supply great information/directions etc for local attractions and nothing was too much trouble. This was our first holiday Stateside without the kids and the hotel made for a great peaceful, getaway location to relax.
I will be recommending this excellent hotel to friends and family.

The selection on the breakfast bar was very limited. Recommend expanding the selection.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by summertime12 Great Vacation Spot.
Everything was just as described from the location to the price. The short walk to the beach was nice. The proximity to local attractions was also a plus. The person I made the reservation with was at the front desk to welcome us when we arrived. My family enjoyed dinning in the hotel restaurant not to mention the kids ate free. The only negative was no view of the ocean from the room, that however is easy to overcome with the price.
Thank You HI Oceanside Marina,

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Desertrats Overnight stay
Fully enjoyed our overnight stay at Holiday Inn oceanside. It cost a little more to stay here than the Days Inn next door, but well worth it. We had a junior suite, with sofa. its nice to have somewhere to read and relax, other that the bed. The flat screen tv was awsome. We didn't eat at hotel, so can't comment on food and bev. Location is great for the beach and marina food and activities. We will definatly stay again !!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 The staff saved the day!
We had a lovely stay in a clean and tidy room with excellent pillows and bed. Breakfast was delivered on time and was delicious. Where the Holiday Inn at the Marina excelled came after our stay. The next day after our stay, my wife tells me she thinks she left her ring in the hotel room! She is distraught. I call front desk and they tell me they didn't find anything, but will contact the guest in the room now to see if they can search the room. I get a call later saying they found it! They went the extra mile for us and I feel like this is what they do all the time. Truly amazing service!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by csq70 A MUST STAY PROPERTY!
We visited Oceanside for the first time a couple of weekends ago to ride our stand up jet ski's in the surf. Site unseen, we booked this hotel and we were so pleased with the end result! The location was perfect, as it was near the launch ramp, had parking near by for large vehicles hauling trailers, the beach, restaurants and cool shops! We ended up staying an extra night and immediately booked suites for our next trip there in a few weeks. As business owners ourselves, we certainly appreciate the value of our customers feedback and I can with confidence say that we will recommend this property to all of our friends and family.
Thank you for making us so comfortable......see you soon!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by armc1 A great place with children
We had two rooms at the Holiday Inn Wednesday July 10th-Friday July 12th for myself, my two daughters and their three preschoolers, 6, 5, and 2.
The rooms were roomy and clean and the staff was wonderful. We ate 4 meals because the staff was so accommodating, friendly and helpful. The desk clerks were equally helpful. Both Francois and the young woman on on Wednesday night were equally helpful and friendly, as were the wait persons on both for breakfast and for dinner.
It was altogether a great experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kathie27 Great Breakfast wait staff
My youngest daughter & I stayed here while visiting my other daughter stationed at Camp Pendleton. What a great place to stay! We were able to walk to the beach every day & swim in the pool or relax in the hot tub in the evening.
I do want to specifically point out the wonderful waiter we had most mornings we stayed. His name, I believe, was Andrew, & he was by far the friendliest & most helpful staff member we encountered. Every day we were there, he would always greet us with a smile & a welcoming presence. We would look forward to starting our day with wonderful food & great service. He definitely goes above & beyond getting to know his customers as repeat visitors! For a young man just starting out, I am sure he has a great future as his personality is so humble & compassionate he is sure to make an impact in whatever field he ends up in.
I did not have the same 'feel good' experience with the front desk staff. I immediately bristled at the attitude of the woman who checked us in, but other than that, the other staff members were doing their job without going out of their way to make eye contact, ask if we needed anything, or some days we wouldn't even get a hello..even tho we stayed for 8 nights.
It is a beautiful hotel however, with many amenities, & of all places in Oceanside, this is by far the most superior of all that I saw during our stay. We would certainly stay there again if my daughter remains stationed at Camp Pendleton after her deployment.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by less1 Passable but not a great getaway experience
This hotel is located somewhat convenient to the town and beaches. It seems to be designed for people on business trips who don't care much about their room, but as non-business travelers my wife and I found it not to be very welcoming.
The server at breakfast was really nice, but he was the only one working all tables, so breakfast was a highly disorganized and protracted affair. We did not consider this to be the server's fault but rather the management's. In any event it did not start our morning off very well.
Overall, this hotel is somewhere I might recommend but only with many cautions. I would expect that there are much nicer places to stay in the same area.
